Broke but happy.

Today we’ve paid our fourth payment for the house renovation and we are now officially broke. From today onwards we will be reduced to eating dusts and drinking stolen tap water from the neighbours.


Okay, it’s not THAT bad, but bad enough for us to keep track on every single expenditure. Among the things I’ve been doing are these:

-Separating each facial cotton pad into two

-Buying generic branded handwash instead of Dettol

-Saving leftover meals for days after

-Giving Charlie DIY haircuts/baths instead of sending him to the groomer

-Drive one car instead of two cars to save on fuel

-Eating dinner at food courts instead of at restaurants

-Watching movies at home instead of at the cinemas (unless free, hehe)

-Saving shopping coupons and vouchers

-Entertain ourselves with Nintendo Wii

-Recycling clothes and finding different ways of wearing each item

-Showering 3 times a week (I kid, I kid)

Feel free to dispense any tip for saving money if you have any hehe. Before I go, I just want to say this…

To my bestest friends the #porkgang (KY, Haze, Horng, Ruby, God, Kerol, FA, Suanie, Ringo) thanks for accommodating us. First with going to pet-friendly places ALL the time when Charlie appeared in our lives and now with our anti-socialising, stemmed from budget constraints. And it’s very touching to me that you guys love us enough to foot our bills sometimes just so we could hang out too. I love you all so much you have no idea.

And to mom & dad who just moments ago brought us homecooked dinner all the way from Cheras. I know you did it because you know we’d be pressured to pay for dinner if we ate out and you don’t want to put us in a tight spot.

Yummy homecooked dinner.

Thanks mummy, daddy. /sniffs

So yeah, we are broke but we’re happy :)
