Money, money, money....

How much is ever enough?

My girlfriend is from East Malaysia. She was just telling me how little they make over there but how much they spend. ie cost of goods and services

She, like some other EMs, have moved to the brighter lit cities like KL, Penang or some even Singapore. She was lamenting that she didn't see many younger generation over at her place when she 'balik kampung' for CNY. Yet the cost of things are not cheap. Their pay - so crappy, how to survive, she asks.

Here we WMs are a lucky lot. We pay less for petrol, food, stuffs, why even magazines and papers!!!! Yet we grumble that we have not much money.

She made me reflect on how lucky i am.
