Buy old grandmother stock - SPH.
Not volatile but provides good dividends today.

Equities are generally trading at high PE, will get cheaper over the next few weeks. If Grexit proves to be the Lehman moment, then you will get to buy blue chips at basement prices.

Also waiting for the right moment to buy more equities.. Bonds dun seem good now.. But then again multi assets seem the safest.. We r more towards equities for now.. If price low, chiong in to buy..

Any equities u r eyeing? Apart from SPH, what other stocks are good?

DH has been dipping into US & European shares. At one time, he wakes up in the middle of the night and I was wondering what the heck he was doing.
