COVID-19 Has Taken Over Our Lives

Haven't blogged for a while.

I'm not too sure why, but I definitely have been spending more time at home.

On the home front, all is well. More time at home = more time with kids and family. Becoming more of a homebody, preferring to stay at home and do a bit of house chores here and there. Or work till late hours just because we all can now.

On the work front, things are super busy. Good busy. More people staying at home + volatile markets means more people want opening new accounts and more people trading. Company is on a 50-50 split, one week Work From Home, one week work in the office. If things get worse then we might end up in a 100% WFH situation.

On the investment front, this is where things get super ugly. The markets are in total turmoil. Daily 1-2% up or down is nothing, several days of limit ups and downs (5%). My personal portfolio is terrible. I've lost about 40% of my whole portfolio from this sudden drop. I see the situation getting worse and have cut my losses when I see the chance to. Money can be earned back, I try not to be too hard on myself.

COVID-19 has changed the way we live our lives.

Singapore is currently on partial lockdown already with many businesses closed, we've barred entry to foreigners, everyone has to social distance themselves or stay at home to keep safe.

This is probably the worst global crisis we will ever face in our lives, and this is just the beginning.

I wonder how this will end?
