Last week, Reggie from The Financial Coconut did a podcast episode with my boss. If you listened till the end, Reggie updated what his next episode will be about.
If you are interested in my conversation with Reggie, you can listen to it here:

- 25:00: Shifting how I manage my money
- 31:00: My thoughts on where its better to invest in the future (Growth, Value)
I would like to thank Reggie for inviting me to do this podcast. For longer time readers, there should be nothing new shared from this episode. As a podcast listener, I wonder why his podcast is not syndicated to other platforms so that I can listen on applications like Player.FM. Normally, I do not use Spotify to listen to podcasts but these are just minor details.
If you do not wish to hear my conversation, here is a better content.
My friend 15 Hour Work Week’s wife wrote a very detail post sharing her IVF journey: Our IVF Journey at KKH
I don’t have any children. My life has been surrounded by people who wanted children or more children but faced setbacks and difficulties along the way.
Financial bloggers like myself sometimes write about the costs of having children, preaching careful deliberation over balancing the number of children and financial capability.
Few of us could describe the physical and emotional aspect of trying to have children.
I invested in a diversified portfolio of exchange-traded funds (ETF) and stocks listed in the US, Hong Kong and London.

Options as well. There are no minimum monthly charges, very low forex fees for currency exchange, very low commissions for various markets.
