Boat ownership (quite large) is no big deal either, nor is owning a large house etc. Different places different outlooks.

    Women and their ways are however universal and that also applies to men. Different cultures, same old problems.
    hi hi,

    i didnt and had NEVER said that owning 4 vehicles is a big deal.
    i'm sorry if I gave you that impression.
    and i didnt choose to tell csers that.
    just that someone asked.
    so what's wrong with telling a fellow cser the answer?

    and please, stop comparing the lifestyle here and in aussie.

    when i was there, a wrx only cost 45k.
    in singapore?
    a wrx at that same time cost 140k.

    wats your point really???!??!?

    Quick quick, share, how to earn 3k but save 2.7k. chicken rice everyday for a month ($2.5*2*30 = 150) Than MRT 2 trips a day, assume go work and than go home ($2*2*20 = 80)

    that leave me 70 bucks ......... So maybe I need to shave my head, have kopi and teh from the office pantry, always take sweets and tibit from my colleagues stash, use only company phone for all purposes, use office toliet paper only, brush teeth and wash up in the office toilet, never get married and continue to sponge on my parents and avoid paying electrical bills, housing load and all other basic necessity in life. I think I have enough to spend to go out with my friends once a month.

    Now I think I can survive on 300 bucks

    i dont mean to disbelieve yappy, but to take home 3k and save 2.7k, i find it really really ...errr...impossible.
    i think transport alone easily $300 liao.unless you stay so near to office, and weekends you dont even go out.

    hahaha......

    I don't think Jeanie is trying to show off her assets or anything in the beginning...but things diverted so much when everybody brings in their view on partners,on financial planning etc...

    at least let's not have the ''tall poppy syndrome''

    yup.
    so many students took loan.
    and after joining workforce, working a few years still paying the god damn loan.

    that's why i said, for a student with 30k savings,
    either he has a remarkable financial discipline, or he's just bull shitting.

    no offense.
