2021 is’nt a good year for many of us in Indonesia. Indonesia’s Covid continue to spike every single day and even health experts worried the worst is yet to come. Looking at how the Indonesian government handling Covid-19 issue since last year made me worry as most of government official always talking about economic impact or economic first, without picking vaccine program or Covid problem solving as top priority.
As I prefer to keep distance from politics, I would rather to focus to my nearest family and surrounding community, including me and my family. How my family and I can survive living in Indonesia without dependent with the government. It’s not that I’m apathetic or looking for my own safety, but as I know that Indonesia is developing country and it has too many people living in poverty.
That’s why I still manage to keep increasing my investment portfolio as path to achieving financial freedom. Even though I have to choose between maintaining business continuity, providing monthly budget and preparing a health emergency fund, I still try to increase the amount of investment every month.
I added 5000 SGD in June 2021, ending with $166,000 in net deposit since initial investment. Net deposit plus total returns (including dividend) and minus monthly fee from StashAway made my investment at the end of June 2021 reaching SGD 182,429.07 or 72.97% from my target 250K SGD at the end of this year.
It’s seem very hard to achieve my goal at the end of this year, as I will need to push my deposit for more than 50K in 6 months, especially when considering my plan to build a new cabin house, but I’ll be keep my target while looking for new income opportunities.
