About Me

Hi My name is Dr Alex Koh. I am known as the ‘Father with 3 Jobs a day.’ 

1. Engineer,  2. Financial Investor,  3. Writter

Welcome to my MooMooCoo.com blog page. A page dedicated to all young families trying to find that financial flexibility in their routine lives. Yes, you have seen it right, I have 3 jobs a day and we enjoy the journey very much.

I am a fully qualified Chartered Engineer with more than a decade experience in the Oil and Gas industry. I graduated with a first class and PhD from Electrical Electronics Engineering. 

Back in 2011 after we got married, I had a good high salary secure job. However with the arrival of our first born child, we still struggled financially. I’ve always blame my job for not paying me well enough and quit my job for a six figure salary.

Even then I was still struggling to save money! I was always in credit card debt and bought more things than I ever needed. 

TIME FOR A CHANGE! The Oil Financial Crisis hit in Early 2015! I was close to losing my job, I had to accept half my salary to survive in the current climate. It was a financial shock to the family. Home budgets were slashed right across the board. Started emergency funds in case I lose my job. It was an uphill struggle. 

That is when I started learning more about investing and wealth building. Elimination of Debt and Financial Flexibility. Despite making half what I was making before, I was actually saving three times more

 

The formula was simple! 

Save before you spend.

Key Importance of Family Savings

My dad always reminded that family is our number one priority regardless the size. As a father I started understanding the importance of providing the best to my family. The number one ingredient to keeping it all afloat is 'TIME'. Time investment is the most important factor regardless of your occupation and hobby. Lot of sacrifices is accepted to put our family ahead of everything else.

My dad also strongly emphasis that we need to ensure we have enough rainy day savings for any life surprises. Its always better to have issues which money can deal with than problems which we cannot control. We still need luxuries in our daily lives to remind us to learn how to make and earn more money as we go along and never ever stop learning.

"Not Enough Money is Root to All Evil" - Robert Kiyosaki

You are not a rich person until you savings and control your outgoing finances. The Aston Martin, Marble kitchen floor and 20m yatch does not count as they depreciate in value over time. A Rich person is one who can control grow his savings and provide the minimum for their family.

Smart Investment Passive Income

A young family should have enough savings to cover for 6 months basic expenses in case the bread winner loses their job.

Never ever leave money 'under the bed' as they do not grow and loses its value from inflation. I started investing when my first child turns two from a long term investment guru whom have grown her investment to support her child's university funds. Savings alone can only take you so far and investment provides a steroid effect if applied correctly. We must always understand the risk in investments as mistakes can cost the entire capital.
