Life was too good back home.....

Life here has been getting more busy and hectic. My life now is just all about work, study and rest.I feel very tired at times.Because I'm working part time,this means that I have less time to study.So how?I sacrifice my time more than others....I rest less....I take shorter afternoon sleeps....I don't lepak-lepak and waste my time.I cannot afford to sit down and chit chat or hang out with my friends so often.

*That's why,I can't blog so often anymore.I will blog only once every 2-3 weeks.....if I'm really free,then only I'll blog once a week*

As you all know,I'm also supporting myself(in everything under the sun) apart from tuition fees,room rental and 3 meals a day provided by my hostel.As I reflect back on last year,I realised I really had a luxury life.Luxury life in the sense that I always have money in my wallet,so much that I don't even have to think when I want to buy something(usually food).

I'm sure all of us are like that......want snacks?Just buy.Feel like eating outside?Just eat.Feeling bored?Just go for a movie with your friends.No problem.Money has never been an issue in my life back home.It was more I lazy?Do I have time?Do I feel like it?.....when it comes to spending money.Money didn't seem so precious to me than now.

Back home,there is always food.Cereals,bread,maggie mee,fruits,biscuits,ice creams......Almost anything,you can have it at home whenever you feel like it.Besides that,there is a burger stall and a malay stall nearby my house....anytime when I feel like eating my hotdog or nasi goreng kampung,I can have them.Want to eat,just eat.Right now,I even have to budget eating maggie mee per week.Whenever I buy any snacks such as biscuits or cheese,I need to control eating them so that it is enough to last me for the month.

Thinking of it,it's a joke that I managed to spend only 40$ last month.Spending just 40$ last month????Back home,I spend at least RM200 a month!!This means even after converting,I still spend less than back home.Weird isn't it?Shouldn't it be the other way round??

It's also ridiculous for me to be able to support myself with just my working money.With just the money I earn,I am still surviving.....still able to enjoy with my friends....even after paying stuff like my internet,transport,laundry and handphone reload(total cost is around 120$ a month).

Last year,my parents gave me RM300 a month......And I spend it only on food,parking and maybe some movies.That's all!Apart from that,nothing else.......And I still take money from them during the weekends when I spend on food outside.I said weekend spending is not included in my allowance.Photostating books,buying some stationary stuff,going for a vacation trip with my friends,supper.....All these things.....I take money from my parents whenever I spend on them.I feel very embarrased with myself now when I think of it.Why did I do that??RM300 was more than enough(of course,I did save alot of money too).

Anyway, although time and money is pretty tight for me,I didn't neglect my social life.In fact,I really had fun last week going out with my friends.Let me tell you.....having friends from all over the world is the best thing here!
