Hi! Welcome back to another month-end net worth and life update.

Every month, I track my net worth progress towards my $1,000,000 milestone, which is how much I need to retire early. Let’s find out how December 2020 went.

Life Updates for December 2020

December is usually a more chill month, and the festive period feels like a welcome break from monotonous office work. Christmas was everywhere, and while I didn’t go out that much, it was still nice to experience.

In addition to just going out and having fun, I tried to start filming for my YouTube channel. It didn’t go as well as I had hoped, but still interesting, nonetheless.

Financial Updates for December 2020

And now, let’s get into the financial aspect of things. A few things to note, as usual:

  • I track my net worth in Singapore Dollars (S$).
  • But I also include a conversion to U.S. dollars (US$) in my net worth update.
  • At the time of writing, the exchange rate is S$1 to US$0.757.

Without further ado, here are all the numbers.

What’s my net worth?

Brokerage (SG)S$140,446S$142,016(+S$1,570)
Brokerage (International)S$44,832S$45,592(+S$760)

As at 30 November 2020, my net worth was S$263,606, or US$197,441.

As at 31 December 2020, my net worth was S$267,432, or US$202,446.

The drop in my cash again shows that I’ve been spending more than I’ve earned. At this point, I’ve gotten used to it and I don’t regret it a single bit.

It’s interesting to see that my net worth has again increased even though I’ve saved nothing and invested nothing. Super cool.
