Lavish
日曜日: September 29, 2019



Over breakfast, Brother shared about his bro-in-law who just bought an expensive drone he doesn't even need. This same dude buys expensive gadgets and changes into new ones even when the fairly newly brought item is still fully functioning. Their house is creaking old and badly needs a renovation. Having been raised by a money-wise mother, this baffles me and my brother. 

I can't call Mom stingy. We never lack food growing up. And when we eat out, we were given the liberty to choose what and how much food we want, eventhough we were poor. She spends wisely though. And she's strict about not wasting water, electricity and everything else that will incur damage to the house hold budget. She also highly discouraged taking loans and spending more than we can afford. She taught us to live simply. I think it's all thanks to Mom that I'm fairly doing fine with the money that I currently possess. 

I own 2 credit cards I never maxed out and always paid in full every salary cut off. With this, enjoy 1% cashback in all my spending (protip: if you're using bdo, try amex cashback!)

I rent a room I pay for only 3k a month when I can afford a condo.

My sneakers, I bought for 100 on-sale in SM kahit afford ko nag Converse or even Lacoste.

I do spend lavishly on food though. Just like Mom.

Brother is scared on getting a credit card. I told him Mom trained us well so I'm confident he would not fall into cc debt and will end up enjoying the benefits of having one instead. I wonder how Mom felt hearing us having that kind of convo about her.

If God will give me children of own in the future, I wish that they will also see me as how I see Mom- a wonderful, capable woman who raised her children to be the same.

W: how about we talk over coffee or a chat?

Z: why not?

Guess, I'm back on the dating scene?
