In Seductive Fantasy, Property is Easy Money

Posted on Jan 18, 2017 in Articles by 0 Comments


You often see pictures of rich people in seductive lifestyles. Or, at least, in a lifestyle that gives the appearance of rich.

You know the pose: standing beside their Lamborghini, hands folded around their chest, smiling the smug smiles of those who think they’ve got it figured out.


I Am Not One Of Those ‘Rich’ People – But I’m Wealthy Enough On My Own Terms.


Apart from being painfully aware that I have almost nothing truly figured out, I detest the idea of being ‘rich’. It’s not a pleasant thought to me.

People want to get things fast. The sooner, the better. There is no time to wait.

Give it to me yesterday, please.

 Is Capital Gains the Singapore Property Wealth Trap?
We can see many dream-to-become-millionaire property investors on the streets. It’s interesting to see how dreamers of ‘The Next Singapore Property Millionaire’, behave like the hilarious first round participants of ‘The Next Singapore Idol’ contest who are thick-skinned enough to believe they have ‘it’.

My late multimillionaire grandfather said, “The Rich makes money with control, while dreamers always make money on hope… and hope is their only saviour.”

On day, a rich dad took his son on a trip; he wanted to show him how poor people live.

They spent time on a farm of a poor family.

On the way home, dad asked, “Did you see how poor they are? What did you learn?”

Son said, “We have one dog, they have four dogs.”

“We have a pool, they have rivers.”

“We have lanterns at night, they have stars”

“We buy our organic food, they grow theirs.”

“We have walls from our expensive houses to protect us, they have friends.”

“We have nice cars to drive and show others, they have freedom of time with their love ones.”

“We have latest tech gadgets; they have real touch & love.”

The son said, “Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are.”
