How Not To Stay Close Door

Fresh air, refreshing view, people, place and movements. Hmm… What a relief.

I planned to stay under the roof for this weekend except for my jogging routine on Saturday. I thought, this way, I can complete all my pending tasks which is piling up, taking all the space in my to do list.

But I was so wrong. And, this is not the first time it’s happening to me.

I just couldn’t stay close door with limited movements. I demand fresh sceneries surrounded by movements. Walls are killing me. Stagnant is a poison. I need to breath. Breath with movements and energy. I love mobility and started to embrace the change.

Believe me, I have tried multiple times to stay stagnant focusing to complete my work. I just couldn’t do it. Why it’s so? I don’t know. The only thing that can hold me stagnant is Instagram, Feedly, Pinterest, WordPress, Pocket, Twitter, YouTube, Etsy, Flipboard, Newstand you name it.

While writing this post, I’m enjoying (do I?) my ginger tea and maggie soup (sucks)

Gosh, I screwed up again.

 

P.s. That’s called maggie soup by the way I asked for mamak style spicy, so they gave me maggie powder pack to do “self-serve”.

[#HowTo] #Survive with MYR500

bty

Within a blink it’s #October now. Soon, #2017 is gonna over.

Amazingly, I have done nothing great for past ten months. For remaining two months, I have decided to scratch and challenge myself.

My goal for #November2017 is to survive with MYR500 ($117) for the next 30 days. Let me see if I can pull this. I believe this is possible with right planning and a lot of dedication.

Challenges test your capability, emotion, enthusiasm, desire, and commitment. It’s hard but it’s possible.

The feeling of achievement and victory out of your hardwork is totally unlike from the normal happiness.

Let me prepare myself from now. What should I cook??? I’m good in cooking tomato soup tho… Where the hell is that tomato???

[#BettaFish] The Blue Eye “Neelakannan” My First Pet Ever

In case if any of you wondering why I am not talking or posting about “Neelakannan” the #BettaFish and worrying about him… [OK, let’s cut the crap and back to reality, I knew none of you would have thought the way I said above] he is at his OWN world now.

Since I broke his expensive aquarium (lol, only $7); I couldn’t witness his pain in small FIFA word glass cup. I took full responsibility of his pain. So, I decided to clear my sin.

I gave him the FREEDOM he ever needed. I drove him to my hometown on past #Deepavali2017 and released him in Perak’s longest river called #KintaRiver at #Perak.

I don’t know where he is now and what he will be doing right now. But, I wish him safe and happy life ever after.

At times, I felt that he had chosen me to gain his freedom. Initially, I have selected different fish but somehow I picked him to pay.

I always had this sadness inside me to bring him to my workstation. That supposed to be the original plan. I thought he will be alone and lonely at night after working hours. I thought none will be there to feed him on weekend and he had to hold his hunger until Monday.

I felt responsible when I feed him excessively. I felt guilty conscience when I forgot to feed him.

Having a pet is a commitment. It’s a responsibility. YES. It is. I salute all of you who are having a pet.

Even though, he lived only less than 30 days with me; I truly miss him. I used to watch and admire him at evenings under the sun rays. It’s evening now and I miss you.

Bye Bye #Neelakannan

[#MoneyGoal] How To Save MYR10K?

Two years ago, I set my goal on certain things especially on my financial status. Today, I am glad to have achieved my goal, slightly delayed but I am still happy about it.

I aimed to earn certain figures per month and to invest RM10K in fixed deposit. I am so grateful that I had successfully hit both my goals. I believe I could have saved more than this but I have decided to spend some money for personal satisfaction and family.

 I have yet to achieve my financial freedom but I am on my way.

HOW DO I ACHIEVE IT?

  1. Saving Is My First Target

Somehow from childhood I have cultivated a strong habit for saving. I don’t waste things. I have attached a strong negative emotion on wastage in all possible ways. I believe that anything can be reusable with little bit of creativity.

When I moved to KL for survival, I ended up with two Maybank accounts because the Company I worked for want me to have an account locally. They have done a great help with this. So, I used one to channel my incomes and another to deposit savings.

The first transaction after the salary deposited is goes straight to saving. I make sure I associated a strong positive feeling on this. I trained my mind as such that if I started off with spending its forever will be spending. It’s worked well for me.

  1. Concise Spending Is the Key

I think my family members and my close friends knows that I am very calculative when comes to money. When I have decided to scarify this for someone, then the person should know that I have undisputed love for them. Other than that, it’s always $$$$ that I count.

I am very concise when comes to spending. I am a smart consumer. Of course, once I was a lousy smart consumer. I tend to waste a lot of precious time thinking being smart. I tell you what, walking the same shops for multiple times and day aiming to find the best for the money is not smart at all. Time is more precious than anything else in the world. So, don’t lose it.

I learned to drop my habit of buying cheap products and picked up an attitude to spend money for branded items yet value for the money. I found myself comfortable with high self confidence. I am a happy girl now and I have no regrets for spending money for valuable branded items.

  1. Emotional Control

Ok. I am an emotional person, that’s for sure. But, when comes to purchasing I don’t throw emotions into it. I always examine the necessary the each purchase. I’ll make it’s in priority list; If it’s not I’ll hold it for the next time.

I think we spend most of the money to unnecessary products only because we have attached too much of emotional to it. This could be hardest thing to practise at beginning but worthy to practice.

I would suggest to starts slowly until you master it. Wish you all the best.

  1. Scarification Is Not To Be Missed.

Of course, gaining comes with a lot of scarification. It’s not easy without scarification; and scarification itself is not easy.

There is an advice by money experts “The money we are earning from basic incoming is not ours to spend”. I’m not asking to you to stop spending but do that little scarification of one/two shirt instead of bulk purchase, plan your purchases monthly instead of emotional purchase or develop your creativity to reuse the things.

  1. Have That Analysing Mindset

I think as a person and human being analysing is a basic requirement we must own. Even though analysing anything and everything doesn’t bring much benefits but it’s better to analysis anything to do with money.  The truth is money is not easy to earn but so easy to spend. Marketers are coming with all kind of creative ideas to manipulate your emotion and mind to trigger that purchase. We are easily brain-washed with all that attractive cosmetic, fashion, style, hair products and etc … etc … ads. We are without doubt being manipulated.  Don’t you think so? So, learn to make your own decision.

I WISH YOU ALL THE BEST. KEEP WORKING ON YOUR MONEY GOAL.
