Season Greetings

Christmas is finally here. Truth be told, I didn’t really feel that it is festive but it is here and personally I just love Christmas. Perhaps it is because of religion but most of all, what i like is the warm fuzzy feeling of the celebration to the year and also in preparation to the upcoming one.

Finance Blogging

Maintaining a blog isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do but it is one of the more handy things to do since you generally just write what you like and what you feel. Different people have differing views, hence why we have different opinions and how one react to certain things will be unique as well. Some of our actions are determined by the culture, the attitude and the way we were brought up so none of these are wrong. However, in my opinion it is wrong to shout or scream in public no matter what unless you are slightly deranged.

Media

I also learned that social media is an extremely negative arena. One wrong move and you will be victimised or CSI-ed by people. People take no responsibility for mistakes if they found the wrong person. Can you imagine the stress the family members have to endure to only find out that they got the wrong person. I’m not a big fan of naming and shaming. After all, no one knows their side of the story. Everyone would think that they are right in their own manner of reasoning. That’s why there are still lawyers in the country.

2020 – The year that the impossible happened

Not everyone had a good year. For those who had a good one, plenty to shout out about given how tough a year it has been mentally, physically and monetary wise. Anyone who had an okay year, I guess it isn’t that bad given the circumstances. For those who were impacted this year and you have struggles which will bring through the next year don’t feel bad. Remember that positive vibes will bring you positivity. Don’t forget to always help other regardless of your situation.

Conclusion

Regardless, life must still go so. We are resilient. Life is tough but so are we as Singaporeans. Saving for a rainy day is something we do best. Different people have different levels of savings. The most important thing is to accept that you need a rainy day fund. Start today.

Season of Giving – Tab for a cause

Advertisements

The season of Christmas is coming. Many people are still trying to get in the mood of celebrating Christmas and it is a nice feeling to do so. In doing so, have anyone wondered if anyone out there needs a helping hug. Other than those meaningless gift exchanges that generates more dumpster waste and creating a new cycle of recycling habits, perhaps it is time to sit down and think about what Christmas is all about.

A Giving Christmas? Really?

All of us want to find a reason to celebrate. In doing so, indirectly I’ve seen people using Christmas for meaningless boasts. At the same time, I have also encountered many people who dread the Christmas habits of gifting. Maybe I am skeptical but I refuse to budge over these futile attempts to gift and receive gifts. Advent is a time of giving but not giving to people who already have enough.

The Exercise or the Process

Not to mention that it burns a tiny hole in your pocket, the efforts to search, deliver, wrap and store these presents seem to have slowly lost its meaning. Looking back at the spiritual aspect of Christmas, it is a time to celebrate but humbly. Helping others along the way seem to be well forgotten. Yeah, I hear people saying tax season is coming so it is time to donate but really, is that the only driver of donation? The 2.5x that caps at 2.5k per year? Our conscience are better than that and I believe the beings still have hope. Despite all that inner angst and money worries and more talk about money, giving shall prevail over all during this season.

Tab for a cause

Tab for a cause is a simple tool that you can add on via your chrome browser.

You can raise money for charity with every tab you open in Chrome just by surfing the web. I was introduced to this by a friend just one week back.

Each time you open a tab, you will be greeted with an incredible new tab page filled with custom widgets, pictures, and a couple banner ads. Tab for a cause collect ad revenue from the page and use it to donate to the cause you are supporting and like minded people have raised over $1M for charity just by surfing the web.Anyone can join in by adding that chrome extension to their own browser device.

I wouldn’t say this is the most friendly user app or extension but if it is for a good cause. Why not for that effort. For every successful link that I refer, I will get additional 350 hearts that goes to the charity organisation that I choose to give to. There is no benefit on my end. I hope that if you do have any sources of referral, you can do the same to pass it on and get it going.

Disclaimer

I do not own or get any benefits from this. In this digital age, if raising funds need to be done this way – It is worth every effort to do so. Please spread that on if you can. After all, we have to live life meaningfully whether we are subject to any hardship or luxury. We start out as equal so there shouldn’t be any class differentiation.
