[Not a #Foodie] #TomyamSoup, #Oldtown #PetalingJaya

mdeI am not a foodie and that’s for sure. I’m selective when comes to foods. That’s because I’m not a fan of many food items. As long as the food is tastes good and worth for the money, I’m fine with it. At times, it’s a real frustration when you are ended up spending money for not-so-good food. So, I have decided to share my reviews on the foods I have tried. I don’t really go out and explore foods out there, but I can surely suggest you good foods that I have tried. So, buckle up and explore these series of posts.

Before that check out my post on #NasiLemak here and best prawn me here

mdemdeI’m a hard core lover of Tomyam soup. And, that’s how I found this shop.

It’s located at old town #PetalingJaya (PJ). It is not hard to find it. In fact, it’s located beside the roadside opposite of Public Bank #PJ.

mdeIf you’re looking for the spicy one, this is it. It’s worth trying. I had a bowl of white rice, chicken tomyam soup and kangkung belacan with hot the “o”. The whole meal cost below RM15.

I haven’t tried the other menus but thumps up for #TomyamSoup.

Frankly, it’s not even a stall. It’s a food served in alley which usually started to get active after 6PM. They operate until 3PM and close shops on alternative Fridays. Expect little bits of crowds tho. I guess; most of the people in Klang Valley are already know the place and the foods.

By the way, #NasiLemak is a common Malay Malaysians food which is truly enjoyed by all Malaysians ethnic.

The plain basic nasi lemak is only RM2.50 per plates and with fried chicken is only RM5.00. This is not the traditional typed Malaysian’s styled nasi lemak. Definitely, you can expect different taste here.

Besides, nasi lemak they are also serving fried foods. I have tried few of them and I love it.

I don’t know why they named it as “Bumbung” = Roof, but it’s worth checking out.

[#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???

[#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.
