He is a Group President of The Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (GIC) but:
- takes a train to Raffles Place, then walks 20 minutes to Robinson Road as a form of exercise
- personal errand is carried out himself and he does not bother his secretary
- does not book a single hotel room, sleeps on the plane, refuses a corporate limousine and insists on public transport
Living frugally in Singapore or any modern city is no easy task. We should learn from this man.
Stay Frugal, Save Hard, and Invest Smart.
