Always have a Plan B

I watched "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" yesterday. It was great. Transformers are my childhood heroes. ^^


SPOILER ALERT! Do not read on if you intend to catch the movie.


After my time in the army, I learnt to always have a Plan B ready. My sergeant will always ask me "Soldier, what's the wet weather plan?" I also applied this thinking on my financial planning too. My Plan A is to build a normal career, working a 9 to 5 job diligently. However, if something drastic (retrenchment/ pay cut/ mid-life crisis/ health problems) happens, I also have a plan B to fall back on. My Dividend Portfolio serves as my Plan B, my wet weather plan, by providing me with a steady stream of passive income.


So, while I was watching the Transformers movie, I love the scene where the Autobots escaped from the space shuttle/rocket unscathed. They have a Plan B! They built an escape pod in the first-stage booster rocket so that they could escape the exploding main rocket before Starscream fired the missiles at them.


After watching the movie, I had my lunch at Wendy's. Gonna share some mouth-watering pictures that I took with my phone's camera. Hee ^^




I ordered the Spicy Chicken Burger set meal. The meat patty is more tender and juicier than KFC's Zinger burger.  The bun is softer. Not overly spicy.  Overall, I prefer this over the Zinger. The fries are great too! Crispy on the outside and soft inside.
I ordered the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad. The serving is huge! The bowl of salad can serve a meal by itself!. Luckily, I have my friend to share it with me, otherwise, I could not finish it on my own.

My friend ordered the Fried Chicken set. He said it is too salty.

So, what's your Plan B? Or maybe you even have a Plan C? Share your comments below. ^^



Peace Out,
Dividends Warrior

My Plan A is like yours, hold a regular job and get paid regularly. My Plan B is getting rental income from property investments, and hopefully capital appreciation in the long term for either retirement planning and/or children education fund. My Plan C is to have 6 to 12 months of emergency fund in case no tenant to help me with the mortgage loan. My Plan D is to have a mortgage insurance in case something happens to me, my family will get the property/properties FOC. However, deep in my heart, I hope Plan C and D will not be executed.

Hi financialray,

I guess most people have a similar plan A. Get good qualifications (degree), work hard and get promoted. The story of the rat race. Lol.....

Ur plan B si viable too. Rental income is also a stable form of passive income.

All the best! ^^

Watched the new Transformers, too. Although I liked it, I felt like there was something more to be wanted! Not aware why or what exactly caused this thought, but that's the fact. Thanks for your awesome blog!

Hi Jimmy!

Thanks for the compliment.

Yup. The film gave me a sense of nostalgia. But I just dun feel really connected to the characters.

My plan A & B is opposite of DW. Currently on a 9-6 job while working towards Plan A. Plan A is to live off passive income by 50. Plan B is to continue salaried job till 65.
