Ok so right…my plan now right…is to be kiam siap(Hokkien for
Ok now hor…i dongwang to call myself
stingy …i just checked the meaning..
stingy 1 : not generous or liberal : sparing or scant in using, giving, or spending <stingy with the salt> <stingy employee benefits> 2 : meanly scanty or small <stingy portions of meat
Yay me!! I found a new Carol-to-be- description and a new goal!
10 Easy Steps to be
kiam siap Thrifty
1. Don’t buy junk food
like Lay’s even though it’s damn cheap. Cheaper than Mister Potato
( Only RM1.00) Scratch that
2.Don’t buy calling card
crazy expensive Rm160 for erm… at the rate of Rm0.20 per min
3. Snack at home before going out to dinner at somewhere posh
like Blue Water. Less temptation to order second serving
4. Go Veg!
Porridge, bread,jam,biscuit and Milo… WEEE!!! * frown*
That’s not food Scratch that too
5. Dun reply sms from Msia.
SO BUDDIES, If got anything email or Facebook or MSN me k? or drop a comment here. Pls use ur brain. Private matters of course may direct it to my email. KThxBai
6. Shop with care.
Only buy what is absolutely needed. Quote Carol’s fren, Wood,” Spend on what is necessary” Duh who dunno that… Wood let me teach u another phrase I came up with. “ If you think you need it, stop turn around and go home, come back tomorrow if you didn’t die from the lack of it”
7. Go home for lunch.
Go home for breaks.Prevent temptations like Subway, Thailin and BlueWater, Manipal Canteen… Anything that involves food think of home 1st:)
Home sweet home! ( err hostel sweet hostel? )
8. Cook in bulk
For both lunch and dinner at once.Better still one whole week! So that there an excuse to not go out to eat :p And kiam siap ppl cant stand to see food go to waste. *Think of the kids in Africa* Fine. I’m in India. Think of the kids in India
Everywhere I wanna go. Walk. Which means, leaving early for dental appointment, waking early for class ( late means paying rm1 for auto ride – freaking expensive – blardy hell!! I can go to KL and come back for RM1!!!! in school uniform of course – another way to save *peace* )
10. Everything second-hand.
No new books, No new kitchenware( I’m kinda obsessed with kitchenware..really…
i want a rice cooker, i want a table to put all my slow cooker and sandwich maker,i want a hot plate, a frying pan and knife and chopping board), no new school bag :( always wanted a Nike school bag like elora’s or lipsheng’s BUT will i die tomorrow if i don’t have it today? ABSOLUTELY NOT. So no new Nike school bag for me
P/S: I love you.
P/S: You didn’t read wrongly. School bag. Yes. A backpack. Not a sling bag, not a hand bag. A back-to-school bag. I’m nerd. That’s what nerds carry ( no offence elora & lipsheng :p )
