I was looking at my "about me" page when I realized that it is old. My daughter has since grown bigger, my experience has been richer, so here I am writing a new one.
SBI or rather this site makes me rich, very rich. How many of you (working folks) can afford to be with your kids on their first week of school (I did that when my daughter attended her play school)?
Or, how many of you can make a plan to bring your kid to playground (there is a very big one in Singapore, known as Downtown East) one day every week?
Or, how many of you can watch a afternoon movie with your wife after enjoying a long lunch?
This is wealth. People in Singapore put in 10-12 hours work day, 50 weeks per year, most of them get to go for a 2 weeks holiday.
Me? I "worked" a few hours a day (wouldn't really call that work), and get to enjoy quality time with wife and daughter 52 weeks a year.
This is not the only wealth, by working on the site, I learn new skills. Take for example, twitter.
I learn about twitter, mostly on SBI forums. I do not want to boast, but I thought 20 plus thousands followers is quite an achievement considering that I write about coffee, not really a happening topic.
People likes and follows what I write, that is pretty cool, don't you think so?
It has been a good year, and I look forward to many more to come. Writing about my passion, having time to spend with my family and enriching myself with new knowledge.
Sometimes it makes me think, why would people want to spend so much time away from their family, to slog for a job that ultimately doesn't belongs to them and can be taken away from them when time is bad.
Anyway, shouldn't get too philosophical. I am Ebenezer, still having a great time "working" on this site, shown here are my lovely wife and beautiful daughter.
That is pretty much about me, I was thinking whether I should write about hobby, then I realized this is my hobby...;P
PS: By the way, Solo Build It was what enables to enjoy all these and if you ever consider "trying" for such a lifestyle, this is the platform you should consider...check it out when you are tired of those long tiring days.
