Someone asked me recently, “So, what will you get with your first pay?” and I realized that I haven’t put much thought on it. I know a big chunk of it will go to my savings. Then some of it for my carpool partner cum driver (Hello, Mama!), lots of sashimi, laundry bills, hand therapy, shower creams, delicate fabric detergent…
Sounds hardly imaginative, but I think I’m up for waiting and saving for bigger things. I want a steamer! A classic iPod! A stereo set! Tickets to somewhere! A new Powershot Pro camera! … A car with my own money, when the time comes. A house? Who knows. What can a one and a half month’s (minus what I intended to save) get me, apart from basics, really?
In my ideal world, I’d get something that I’ve loved since college, but never bothered to save up for:
OMG the color! SO PREEEEEEEEETTYYYY!
Unfortunately, there’s no way that’s going to happen even in six months unless the US$ miraculously, insanely depreciates against the MYR till its US$1=MYR1.
I don’t have that much patience. I remember a girl whom I worked with at Ferragamo, just finished her SPM, worked for a year there before uni and saved a lot of her salary, that she got a big diamond ring as a gift for herself. It’s bloody RM6K. I thought she was kidding but the rest of the colleagues seemed to confirm the story.
Oh why la must pretty bags be so expensive…
What big purchase did you make when you got your first pay or what big purchase will you make when you get your first pay?
