Subscribed my AIMSAMPReits Rights Issues

It has been very fraustrating to be unable to find a less crowded ATM for subscribing the Rights Issues of this Reit. But thankfully, today I managed to locate one to proceed with my subscription.

Not only did I fully subscribed my 7000 rights issues (7 Lots), but I also try my luck for excess rights, and hope I can get them too.

For now, I just wait for this excercise of rights issuing to be completed and looking forward to the coming dividend day.

Starhill Global Reit

Added this Reit into my current portfolio yesterday. It may not be a best price purchase but since I am unable to forcast the price movement, I'm not too concern by it. If it ever goes down much, I will buy more of it to enjoy the benefit of cost averaging. Lastly, I want to say, "Welcome to become a part of my portfolio, Starhill Global !!"

I have a dream

A dream that I always have.

Yes, you guess it right, it's being financially free. Being able to enjoy what life hands to us, but yet do not have to worry over the bread & butter issues. Imagine, for one moment, I can be gone fishing, or choose to travel wherever and whenever I prefer, without the concern for and bogged down by work commitments. Or, I am able to extend a lending hand to social work and help out those that are in need, probably financially. With financial freedom, I can do much more !!

But how to do it, you may wonder ?

Here's what I plan to do to achieve this goal in my life :
  1. Have a budgeted plan on my income earned through my salaried job(s)
  2. Regulate my expense and spending to the least possible
  3. Save as much as possible
  4. Channel a part of my savings into stocks that provide dividends regularly
  5. Re-invest all the received dividends back into Dividend Stocks
  6. Repeat Step 1 - 5
  7. Invest in physical gold whenever I have spare cash
  8. Invest in real estate whenever I have enough cash
For now, I am doing Step 1 - 5, and hopefully it'll snowball fast and big enough for me to carry out Step 7 & 8. I have detailed my current stock holdings and average monthly dividend income goal on the right-hand side of this blog.

I will update any new purchase and add it into my stock portfolio. I will also aim to increase my monthly dividend income, at least on a per quarter basis.
