Major Saving Mode On!

While other people are happily discussing about where they should go for their next trip/holiday/vacation, what they should buy next and so on; I on the other end could not help but to just silently bear with the urge.

I too, want to go on a holiday!

I too, want to buy this and that!
I too, have so many things which I'd like to do with money (if only I own more of it)!

But, I can't really do so. :'(


I AM ON A MAJOR SAVING MODE NOW!

Ever since year 2013, my life had changed. I had not been traveling much as compared to the previous few years. Well you say cheap cheap also can just go somewhere simple, yes; but if you really do a proper calculation, local trips can easily cost up to few hundreds. (Overseas trips don't even need to mention la.) And if you are on a saving mode, you will know what these little amounts could sum up to and the meaning of it despite the mass.

Ok I just gotta admit and say this out loud: it is not easy being an adult!

With so much ongoing commitments and stuff, seriously your life will be so routine and not much life at all. Every passing day, all you can think about is "how to save". And then you will be working just for the sake of earning money which is to be used to fund all your commitments.

Sheesh I dislike em'. What are commitments for anyway? Why do I have to be committed? I deserve to get a life too.

I want to be free & easy and to be able to do what I want and what I like without being controlled (regardless of whether direct or indirect) and having no worries at all. Well, we all know that is too good to be true. Face the fact, this does not happen in real life!

All I know is I had to save in order to reach my goals now. Every single day I am trying my very best just to save money. My definition of saving would be not to buy unnecessary expensive things (a.k.a. splurge).

Lately I have been spending on nothing else apart from the neccessities (such as food, toiletries, transportation). That's it. No leisure, no entertainment, no fancy/posh/high class stuffs. :(

Eventually I had saved until I became so skinny now wtf just joking ok! I felt so bored with my life!!!

Noticed the sad piggy over there? That's exactly how I am feeling now.




Withstand withstand withstand.

Save save save.

Siao wan!!


If this carries on, I think I am about to go crazy.
I dare not even think about adding more commitments now, I dare not even imagine how much more commitments that will be auto-added into my list unwillingly and unknowingly.


For now, this is my motto:




I Believe in Pink


 


PM Najib Razak made TV address to dissolve Parliament


Earlier today, Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak made an announcement on television in regards to dissolving the Parliament, thus calling for a long-anticipated general election 2013. Finally~~~ #GE13 #PRU13



It was said that the poll will likely be held in late April, following a campaign period of about two weeks.

Wondering what changes it will bring... Will Malaysia be a better place to live in?? Hmm. =X

I believe all Malaysians (if not, most) are awaiting for Malaysia's 13th general election to be held. 

So fellow Malaysians, let us all vote wisely this year!!!




Upgrade: Hotmail to Outlook


Ever since mid-February when Microsoft announced that they are closing Hotmail, my Hotmail dashboard had a special tab on the top most level requesting that I upgrade to Outlook.com.

For most of the time, I had ignored it and pretended that it's presence wasn't there. LOL

However today was the day that I decided to upgrade my hotmail to outlook.com once and for all. Well, Microsoft's hotmail is going to phase-out soon anyway.

Then voila... I got Outlook.com's clean, Metro-Style interface for their mail. Woots. Not bad. I love it so far, even though I still needed more time getting used to it. :)


Immediately, I had also changed the tab color to Pink (in place of the original Blue one). ;)


IMO, this new Outlook.com provides a really clean and fresh-looking dashboard and it is also much more organized, plus being much easier to find what I want to find and composing new emails. Wow.

So peeps, what do you think about the new Outlook.com eh?

Cherry Blossom & Hanami




Spotted this lovely picture of cherry blossom blooming along the Meguro river today on Kawaii.i Facebook page! Aww. It's so pretty. :)

Meguro river seems to be one of the most popular places for "HANAMI", flower viewing, where you can enjoy cherry blossom along the river for about 3.8 kilometers.

Do you guys know "HANAMI"? It's Japanese unique event for celebrating coming spring by seeing cherry blossoms. During this season, many people spend wonderful time with their friends, families, or boyfriend/girlfriend, eating, drinking, and chatting under the trees.

So romantic.



Feel like going to Japan again to see those cherry blossoms and join in the Hanami festive!!!



Arrival of Spring 2013


It's spring time!





Happy Spring 2013 everyone!!!
 

Make Moments Perfect





Carpe diem, SEIZE THE DAY!
