Money talk and how I started saving

Hey everyone (perasan ada reader ),
 Since I am under caffeine, I've figured that I might not sleep the whole night so I decided to write something. Caffeine has a strong effect on me. My preference of coffee is either Nescafe or Starbucks. I tried coffee from The Coffee Bean once,it was a horrendous experience for me. My head felt like it would explode from the dizziness right after drinking a few sips. Any caffeinated drinks even tea could keep me awake at night. Low-caffeine-tolerance 

                                                              My savings so far for 2015

 One of my new year resolution is to save up money. I am a highly-ambitious person unfortunately everything I planned rarely gets executed. Somehow, I always found a reason to dismiss the "ambitious" thought. But 2015 is different, I promised myself this would be my year, Insha Allah.

Responsibility is a huge word and hold and even bigger meaning to me. As much as I would love to spend money on things that I barely need, a deeper part in myself despise this bad habit. I have to be responsible over my finance. Someone dear to me once said that youth should not be wasted doing silly things. Yes, you would have something great to tell your grandchildren for being "cool" but do you actually want them to repeat all the ridiculous  things you've done? Of course,the answer is no. Youth should be spent wisely by doing things that you will not regret once you get older. I am teaching myself to be responsible by saving money in hope that by nurturing this good habit it would grow into something beneficial.
     
        I was on Google to find out a few Biology terms that I don't understand when I came across an article about how to save money for dummies. The article piqued my interest so I clicked the link and read the whole article. The article literally is a lifesaver as I was trying to figure out ways so I could start my holy intention lol. It gave me the idea to save RM5 notes. I didn't do it willingly at first, but it eventually became a habit. Fake it until you make it, there's some truth in that. It feels weird when I first started keeping all the RM5 notes but as time goes by now it feels weird if I'm on my cheat day and use the RM5 notes. Yes, I have this cheat day thingy because sometimes , the kiosk do not have enough change so I have to use the RM5 notes to pay for something. That is one of the most annoying moments because in my opinion, when you're doing business you should prepare enough change. Surely you don't expect customers to run around places to get the change ready for you,right?
   
       Anyway, I hope you guys (if there's any human being reading this) try to save some money. We live in an era where RM50 wouldn't last for long. RM50 only lasts for 4 days or 5 if I am being strict on spending approximately RM10 per day for foods and drinks. Times like this makes me feel like being a high school kid again, just so I could eat free foods 5 times per day for free eventhough the amount of oil and salt is quite generous. I still need to study informations for tomorrow's discussion of Log B and fold my laundry ugh, till then goodnight and Assalamualaikum.

The art of what matters;

" It's easier to sit in a painful certainty that nobody would find you attractive or that nobody appreciates your talent than to actually test those beliefs and find out for sure".

A few months ago I responded to an advertisement that is looking for medical student who could write. I gave the person a message and we even had a conversation where she explained about how they are going to provide source, give deadline and how they pay for each writing job that I'll agree to. A week after that, she called and I purposely didn't pick up the call. Why? Well in my defense, it was one of the busiest week in our posting. But to be completely honest, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to do it. So I retreated back to the comfort of my life and just pretend that I could have done it but I choose not to. Did I regret my decision? Back then no, but as I'm writing this I wonder how long is this going to last simply because I refuse to try for fear of not being able …

Skincare routine

Skincare was a very strange concept to me as my mother (who is blessed with good skin genes) always emphasize that putting products on your face would exaggerate unwanted reactions. She was right to a certain extent, if you use unverified products (read; skincare that claims to whiten your complexion in 2 days) then in the long run it would damage your skin. I used to think skincare is such a girly thing to do. Back in high school until my foundation years, I never bothered using toner, moisturizer or even sunscreen! Life was so simple back then, I cleanse my face, let it dry and hope to God that acne would stop invading my face. Who would've thought now I have to wake up early to make sure the sunscreen sit on my face for a solid 20 minutes before going out of the room.

My skin is dry and sensitive. I concluded its sensitive as I can't use products with fragrance without developing rash. Certain products I have tried in the past leaves a tingling sensation especiall…

#PulangMengundi and merepek sikit

As soon as the date for General Election 14 was announced, people started to voice out their concern. For first time voters especially students its not easy to allocate money for transportation. Money is tight for me. Scholarship is not banked in yet and asking for flight ticket money seems so odd in this frugal situation. I saw #PulangMengundi on Twitter which was initiated by a noble and kind-hearted fellow Malaysian made to help each other especially students to go back to their hometown and vote. I am so overwhelmed by this kind gesture because never in a million year would I ever dream of someone sponsoring my ticket back home. Its just too good to be true, and good things doesn't come by that often for me. It is so moving to see people unite, regardless of religion, race, and political view. I hope someday I would be able to be on the giving side. Faith in Malaysian humanity: restored.

What comes next was history, my family and I stayed up late watching AWANI…
