On 5k Going Half...

UNGRATEFUL SON! SPENDRIFT! HOW CAN YOU SPEND OUR HARD-EARNED MONEY LIKE TAP WATER? YOU THINK YOU'RE RICH IS IT? YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE INCOME AND IT'S LIKE YOU'RE EARNING 10K A MONTH! I HATE YOU I HATE YOU I HATE YOU!

Seriously. Retail therapy is bad. Very very bad. It's no doubt that I was super grumpy after I got back from Sunway yesterday. My wallet was empty, and I was really reluctant in withdrawing any more money. Having said that, I still need the money. Petrol's finishing. And I don't really want to be caught in any situation when money is needed and I have none right?

But seriously... Retail therapy is a therapy at first, but it's quite a depressing factor later.

It's worse when it's stretched over a few weeks.

Now let's see where does the money goes to...

Adidas running shoes + shoe bag 400RM
Apparels from Padini Concept store 200RM
Apparels from Isetan 350RM
Apparels from PDI 50RM
Apparels from Giordano 100RM
Apparels from Parkson 250RM
Apparels from Stadium 100RM


Don't really think it's complete yet...

Key Ng's Jacket 100RM
Trench coat from Seed 100RM


And God knows what else...

Damn! Now the money shall remain the same for the next 6 months. I shall not do anymore shopping. And cut down on Starbucks. And erm... yeah... I need to be thrifty from now on. Like seriously VERY thrifty.

I'm sure I can survive on that. There's still some more cash tucked away here and there. If I'm not mistaken I think there's a couple of hundred bucks in the waist pouch back at home. Now I shall go back and rumage through the wardrobe.

Retail therapy is bad, bad, bad! Unless you are rich, then it's OK. You feel good during the therapy, but feel twice as bad after. Gotta learn how to manage your money, my friend! : )

Ouch .... now that's a lot of money spent. Years of empty-wallet experiences has taught me that uncontrolled spending is BAD, esp if the outs far exceed the ins.

Be good ya! ^_^

RM100 for a trenchcoat!!! What a steal!

I don't know if it makes you feel better... but I just realised I don't have the money to pay my rent for this month (after my impulsive holiday to Bandung)! lol

Should've spent the money on iPod Touch 32GB...

It's true that one appreciates money more when one starts working and earning for it, rather than given. Austerity drive for you for a while, eh? :-)
