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.

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
Noticed the sad piggy over there? That's exactly how I am feeling now.
Withstand withstand withstand.
Save save save.
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:
