Portfolio - January 2022

Happy CNY and Valentine's Day to everyone!

The monthly update took much longer because Baby Ong fell really sick and I was thinking of taking a break from blogging. She started having running nose and fever the night before the eve of CNY. We ART-ed her the next morning (fortunately it was negative/less headache) and quickly brought her to see a PD before the PHs. She kept waking up in the middle of the night and we barely had much sleep. When she was recovering, it spread to both of us and we fell sick too >.<"

As for myself, I feel that I am constantly not having enough time and our portfolio has grown so much that it might no longer be realistic/motivating for our readers. Anyway, I will be changing the format slightly to focus more on our passive income given that CZM has tendered and will be retiring early. lol.

With the success of our crypto portfolio, we decided to off-ramp some crypto profits and have taken back our initial capital (whatever remaining are just profits!). The plan was to buy some branded stuff for our parents and CZM but no one wanted it -.-" In the end, we just gave our parents a much bigger than usual red packet, insisted and bought CZM an LV bag and bought lots of REITs. If you are wondering how to off-ramp, you can either send UST to Kucoin/Binance then swap to either USDC/BUSD and send them to FTX and withdraw as USD fiat to DBS (I tried to send USD to Standard Chartered but was unsuccessful).


Total: $2,307,446
Leverage/Debt: $350,245
Gearing: 17.90%

Our Passive Income - Dividends

Dividends for this month: $1,630.42
Total dividends collected for 2022: $1,630.42
Average dividends per month for 2022: $1,630.42

Our Passive Income - Anchor Earn

Interest for this month: US$3,598 (~SSG$4,840)
Total interest collected for 2022: $4,840
Average interest per month for 2022: $4,840

Total passive income for this month: $6,470.42
Total passive income collected for 2022: $6,470.42
Average passive income per month for 2022: $6,470.42

We bought CICT, MCT, MLT, MIT, Ascendas REIT and iShares HK Tech ETF last month which was worth ~300k in total. ~200k from crypto profit and ~100k from leverage/borrowing. With that, our stocks portfolio is now worth ~1.3m in total or ~1m without leverage. Interestingly, the debt we incurred from buying stocks is now more than our HDB mortgage/debt. An indirect way of owning second property!

I decided to invest my CPF OA a few months back and blog about it here - Investing CPF OA Through Endowus. I moved my SRS investment that was with StashAway to Endowus and invested another $10k from CPF OA given that it is a new year and the market was red.

If you are interested in Endowus, do use our referral link for our readers! You will get S$10,000 managed free for 6 months ($20 equivalent) and we will get $20 too! This access fee has no expiry date.

Last month has been quite crazy as LUNA price fell around 50% since reaching its all-time high last year. If you are wondering, we are no longer crypto millionaires for the month of January. So short-lived. lol. As LUNA price fell, I was at risk of liquidation on multiple occasions and Kevin/Turtle Investor even messaged me on Twitter.

I guess that's the benefit of having our address public? Lots of people were monitoring for us. Hahaha. Anyway, we were almost liquidated twice on Anchor and I had to "borrow" CZM's retirement fund from Anchor to lower my liquidation price. It just happened that I opened a leverage position (with a capital of US$7k) on FTX for LUNA a few days before and that got liquidated. The annoying thing was that I thought my collateral was just USD but it turns out that my RUNE was also included and now I own 0 RUNE. CZM had a nightmare that night >.<" I guess I will cut down on my borrow for her to sleep better in the future. I also promised her to never leverage on exchange ever again.

On the bright side, January gave us an opportunity to accumulate a lot more LUNA. We now have slightly over 10k LUNA and I am secretly hoping this will propel us to the next milestone we never thought was possible before investing in crypto - an 8 digits portfolio. I have also decided to diversify out of Terra and bought some ATOM (600+) and OSMO (2.2k+).

Anyway, you can refer to our Terra portfolio on Ape Board below for a more detailed breakdown:
