Hi! I’m Liz.

I’m a 27-year-old, queer, FIRE-chasing, super-introverted Singaporean, who lives a good life on a modest salary. I’ve been working, saving and investing for 5 years now, and have accumulated more than $200,000 in the process.

Although I’ve never earned a real hourly wage of more than $17 an hour (in Singapore dollars), I’m still determined to retire early in 14 years with a nest egg of $1,000,000. I’ll be 40 years old then. Feel free to follow me on my journey.
