Education policy ...

I always wanted to get education policies for my two kids but due to procrastination, I always seems to delay it until recently where I managed to know one good insurance agent from Kluang. He was introduced by my sis in law where he provided good services to her and friends during their bad times. I did survey some policies in Singapore but didn't really buy it due to the cost and trust of the agent. Anyway, I finally secured two policies for them over the weekend which also includes life insurance, medical card and a savings plan. The policy will due in 15 years where they will start their tertiary education. Well, I thought at least it helps out with their education needs in the future when my income will likely be affected then, as well as stayed protected. There are some other alternatives suggestions from my friends and relatives like investing the sum in some safer trust funds which may yields higher returns but I decided to play safe. 

I found a new kopitiam in Taman Molek on Sunday, which was not that new as I was not aware of its existence but I like their clean and spacious surroundings.


A fried rice for my little princess shared with my wifey

Nasi lemak for my kid

I had a Hailam chicken chop ... their speciality.

And, I must said now, their coffee is the best in JB. Very kao and fragrant.
Have a good week and May the Lord God protect and bless you always!

  2. It is good to invest in the children education fund. By the time they are going to colleges or universities, we have some money stand by for them.

    Lovely meals you had there. My kids will like that fried rice and I will go for nasi lemak. ;)

  8. Yes, great to take up policies for kids' education...and best to start early - you will not have to pay so much. I had one for my daughter, started quite late and paid over RM5,000 a year and it was rather heavy since I did not earn so much, less than 3K a month...but I managed somehow. She attained excellent results in her SPM in the end and secured a government scholarship so never used the money - just keep in the bank, earning the measly interest...until maybe, if she decides to go and do her masters or something.

    Food looks great but nasi lemak is Hainan kah?

    1. STP - yeah, and its cheaper to buy now when they are young. At least I am assured that they are protected, while having humble savings for their education.

  11. It is a wise move to get the education policy. Tertiary education is expensive especially overseas. Good to start early.
