Coinhako – My Favourite Crypto Trading Exchange Platform in Singapore.

Opinions are my own.

🙂 Just wanna share some insights.

Many had asked me to trade on all sorts of exchanges/ platforms from Binance > Coinbase > Biki and all but ever since Xfers did not continue their partnership with Coinbase. I went ahead and scouted and found a SGD pairing exchange –  Coinhako. But why Coinhako?

The answer is simple >
Easier to liquidate to/ via SGD and fuss-free to trade.

When I was with the Blockchain company, I used to trade via IDEX and I had to do coin swapping from IDEX then swap out to ETH/ BTC then from there cash out. During the process, I could have innocently spend unnecessary trading fees on gas/ admin and etc.

But on Coinhako, I would just need to Signup > Verify and Link up 2FA > Trade in SGD pairing > Cash out.

Supporting local companies is important and also the comfort trading in SGD.

Xfers supported up to S$5000 in the digital wallet (due to the Payment Services Act 2020) that you can link to Coinhako and trade. However if you are trading from Xfers wallet, the minimum spend is S$550 and transfer can be reflected within 5 minutes of a successful transfer.

Whereas if you trade from Coinhako wallet, minimum buy would be S$10 however depends on the $Crypto you are looking at. Deposits clearance is daily placed in at 10am/ 4pm respectively.

So in summary, good things about Coinhako:

  1. Pairing in SGD
  2. Fuss-free on the Banking & Liquidation Part (Link to SG Bank accounts/ Connect with Xfers)
  3. Local Enterprise #supportlocal with at least 5 years in this business
  4. Great Community via their Official Telegram Groupchat (It’s important to gain some quick insights if you don’t monitor the market and we HODL together.)
  5. Daily “Clock-in” Rewards when you logged into the App and Earn Points.
  6. Points can be offset for % in trading fee (normally 2-times usage of 25% off on trading fee @ 500 Coinhako Points)
  7. Refer-A-Friend and Earn-As-They-Trade
  8. Great UXUI – Price Charts and all.
  9. Once a while, they will organize some form of gatherings. Yay to free drinks~

Since the crypto market is now facing a little dip, I would take this chance to accumulate coins before BTC halving in May 2020.

Entrepreneurship Journey Thus Far

Sometimes I don’t understand my mum because the double standard-ness is at sky high level that sometimes I can’t comprehend with her thoughts.

She always said that; “Wah, you can be a boss leh because you got the brains and the guts” but on another hand “Why you wanna be a boss ah? Find a proper job lah. You need to feed your kids. Be a boss hor, very stress one leh.

Like hello mum, a boss is a proper job. Ok perhaps my entrepreneurship was never a smooth sailing one. My first venture was into blogshops in Year 2011 if I remember correctly?

The idea came about during some free times during the maternity leave and it triggered me to explore a second income but it becomes a good learning ground despite the fact that it’s the blogshop bloom era where majority are hosted via either blogspot or livejournal.

First Venture — Female Apparels Blogshop

But apparently I didn’t become the next Love, Bonito. 🙂 I feel that the reason was that the instability and the full-time job are already too overwhelmed to handle so it didn’t give me the diehard PUSH factor.

So I closed down the now-defunct blogshop and donated all my new clothing to SCWO for the name of charity and hopefully finder keepers theory.

This is not the end. I didn’t give up and work on the — many ideas which came upon me during the pregnancy, maternity period and post-period. Helping to solve my “own” personal issue as a mother of one, two, three and now, four kids (plus 2 furkids) and this is how it evolved to Scentimental and Piggyback.

Failure is not everything. It’s a good lesson learnt and it made me a stronger person. Sometimes you win some, you lose some.

It was never easy to hold a full-time job and work on the other portfolios during the wee hours. Sometimes I only get to have 2-hours of sleep each day and at times when I got burnt out but at the end of the day, it’s to solve a particular problem, a common problem.

Perhaps will share more about each company in coming future. 🙂

OPINION: A Woman’s Standpoint

Actually, sometimes I think back, I realised I had been shortchanged all the while. Thus with a whole new level, I want to set a good example that women should never lower their expectations for someone who’s not their par.

Emphasizing this as a marriage partner because both will need to propel together as one. I always asked myself — if the girl is my daughter, what would I say?

Yes, we should not be materialistic but somehow basic needs will need to be fulfilled. Otherwise, it’s hard to move on. Similar if my daughter divorced in the near future. Even with kids, the more one should not even lower the expectations. Otherwise it’s sending the wrong signals to defuse confidence in the kids.

As women are more fortunate now to be able to get a better education, having financial stability and all, having a partner or not, made no difference however being in a relationship, the other party would need more from us as we would be the only one who is capable to give birth to their offsprings or mental/ physical support.

Wow, I just suddenly feel that I had a strong feminist POV towards things in life but well nothing will change the fact as no one knew how tough I had walked on this path to reach this far. And also this post is dedicated to all women whos roughing out their paths now. XOXO

Similarly, I kept reminding myself.

11.11 is Single’s Day.

No 1-carat ring, say “No” to marriage. Stay single then. LOL

Workplace 101: Leaders versus Managers

6c19b075-d7c4-424e-bb25-02b3a1159877.jpg
Managers versus Leaders

“Manager says: GO! but a Leader will always says: Let’s GO!”

Recently, there is so much negativity that overwhelmed me that I relooked back on what I’ve done, learned and where can I improve. Then it reminded and re-emphasized on the theory of leadership.

There is so much to learn and I sincerely hope that all these can be taught to the younger one since young.

One needs to create an impact and not just direct blindly.

Comfort zone should not be embraced that much if one wants to grow significantly. Saw this picture on Facebook and finally understand how much one can achieve if there is less resistance, So ta-da. 🙂

Just got to keep reminding myself to look forward, keep going and stay sane.

[VFood Review] Veggie House & Max See

zAddress: 61 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8 #01-06 Jubilee Square Singapore 569814 (open in Google Maps)
Contact No: +65-63390570 | Facebook: Veggie House & MAX SEE
Payment: Cash because I was with the little kiddos and did not manage to ask. (Not sure if they accept NETS/ Visa/ GrabPay (Please FB/ Call them to find out)
Operating Hours: Daily, 10:30am – 09:30pm
Vegan’s Notes: Vegan options available here. Please inform when ordering.


So apparently I went to order takeaways when I was with #yahyahpayaya and R as I was rushing from places to places. To be honest, I’m thankful for a hands-on business partner and someone who can read my mind (even though R will shoot me like @#$%^&).

And it just happened that I was in Ang Mo Kio and was chancing upon this stall where I was pondering over the decade changes at Jubilee Square. And I remember BFF shared about their flagship store located in Toa Payoh previously.

Anyway since there ain’t much of the vegetarian choices, I went to try out the cuisine since I never had the chance to eat at their flagship stall.

Location wise.

To me, it’s quite convenient as it’s just 5 minutes walk from Ang Mo Kio MRT (right opposite Ang Mo Kio MRT Station).

Food wise.

Superb. Anything with Vegetarian YTF and Bak Kut Teh will triumph in taste. And Veggie House has both.

Cost wise.

Reasonable for a cafe-tier pricing. Portion seems ok.


Verdict: I think it’s unfair to judge based on the above as I am rushing for time. But the YTF tasted yummy and the soup is decent and light about 2 hours after when I bought the food. Might want to go there for a second time to give a better judgment.

Comments below if you had makan there before, otherwise stay tune to my update.

Volatility on Cryptocurrency

Okay, for the past 30 days, major cryptocurrencies had faced a “pump-and-dump” pattern, for leisure traders like me, it granted us opportunities to enter the market and flushed out disruptive traders and for new “whales” to be granted of their position.

However on the good sight, the volatility only fluctuates within a stipulated zone meaning to say it is for the trading to gain support and this support will be a base for further movements, normally upwards.

BTC [Month for Sept – Oct]
Not sure if this is a deja-vu that prior to the bull run 2 years back. Same trades patterns were seen. 😉 Can’t wait especially Bitcoin is halving in May 2020.

I wonder if it’s a psychological effect that it will boost the price or rather it’s downright to the supply and demands where the Governments are slowly accepting bitcoin as a form of payments/ usage.

Not sure if the volatility is something that the Governments or the Future of Work would want to deal with. Should I even consider to shift my investments to Copytrading? Argh.

The inner demons are making their ways in. And I do know that if one is looking at short terms gains, one should consider Copytrading/ Forex and not Crypto.

Mental Health for Adults

Earlier on, I shared about the Mental Health for Kids. And there is particular an incident that I wished I had moments prior to speak about in any case, this post is dedicated to a friend/ brother who had passed on due to a sudden death 10 days earlier (on 10.10) and it reminded me on how I dealt with my own depression in the past.


Saw this post on Facebook and I can totally relate.

At the end of the day, it’s all about SELF-WORTH. Not everyone can see your worth and you need to walk away from all these negative people and sometimes these negative people could be your closest kin, your parents, your another half, your kids, your siblings.


WALK AWAY.

If they never appreciate every single thing that you did or praise you ever. They never will. Truth hurts but as a strong-minded individual, the ability to walk away is the first step to curb. Cry if you want. Scream if you want. But do note that there will always be someone who will appreciate you. It takes time to find this person though. Wait for it to happen as it will come eventually. Don’t rush into things. Walk away when they say/ mention nasty words.

COMMUNICATE.

You are not alone. Speak to your closest friends or random strangers. I always feel that finding random strangers to speak to, will lessen my burden and reduce the pressure that I had been shouldering. It helps and there are various channels to keep anonymity.

  • Care Corner Singapore Counselling hotline (Mandarin): 1800-3535-800
  • You can email me at willynn.ng@gmail.com as an alternative to Aunt Agony.

DON’T GIVE UP.

Mental Health is just like a common illness similar to fever and cough. Once treated, you will be fine. Don’t be bothered by the ancient taboo that you are crazy once you are diagnosed with mental illness.

Remember life is a sacred thing that one can ever ask for. Look at the patients with cancer, they are constantly fighting to win another moment of their lives. So don’t give up this gift of life that you have dearly.

YOU CAN DO IT. And we can do it together to overcome it. Jiayou!

Death will not solve any issues instead it will make things worst as your surviving kins will need to deal with the loss and heartache constantly.

I once felt tired of life and resorted to self harm but I’m thankful for all my family and friends who had pulled me up during my darkest days.

Otherwise, I would have been six feets under.
