Dividends YTD$31,169$6,600



Is a slow dividend quarter. Average out about S$2200 monthly. Came from a long way from Year 2005 a decade ago where monthly average is just S$208. Total dividends collected since 2005 is S$154,428. I know some one beats me in just one quarter so don't laugh at me.

Shifted some of my cash to property and this tilt my equity invested  %  greater than FD/Cash Reserve (excluding bond/preference) first time. Took a big chunk of cash out for the stamp duties, down payment, blah blah blah ... not my first but is still a humbling experience. 

I did tap some of my CPF but just some only as I planned OA as emergency fund to be conservative as I need to be ready in case interest rate spikes. This is cheaper option considering CPF gives me good interests. Frankly this is really backup of backup of backup plan if I ever need to tap on CPF for help :)

Why am talking about property here ? Well, I like my dividend to grow such that my monthly instalments can substantially be covered without depending on rental returns. So I got a meaningful goal to hit now. Some way to go !
