    It is about time that not only Singapore but the rest of Asia is becoming interested with personal financial blogs. These blogs are truly helpful and useful, it maybe daily finances, startup or anything under the sun we practically need to know. I am learning a lot with the strategies, how to’s(with Ready to be Rich blog from the Philippines) and experiences that these bloggers are sharing on their blogs.
