Ken Wooi’s Spending Habit

Money, also known as wealth to the rich, is the means to acquire goods and services. It’s highly demanded by everyone on planet Earth – well, unless you’re already a rich tycoon’s child.

To understand the importance of money better, it simply means that… the more you have it, the more things you can do with your life.

As cliche as it may sound, money definitely makes my world go round and round… just like the roller coaster. Whee! :D

Today, I’m gonna share a little insight to how I normally spend my money. Here’s a non-extensive breakdown on where my treasure chest is channeled too…

————————————————————

Daily

1) Food

Without food, I won’t survive. If I don’t survive, I can’t spend my money. Enough said. But I always try to eat as cheap as possible though.

2) Parking

My daily routine revolves around driving to desired destinations. I am required to drive out every single day, such as to work, to the mall, or to wherever I feel like going.

Tell me, where can we park for free these days?

Weekly

1) Petrol

The car needs to be filled up every weekend. This always burn a hole in my pocket – petrol is damn expensive!

2) Car Wash

A clean car is a beautiful beast on the road. Vroom!

3) Entertainment

Entertainment involves spending unnecessarily on unnecessary things, such as road trips and watching movies.

What?! Bloggers always watch for free, you say? If you take a look at kenwooi.com’s Facebook Page, you’ll be informed that majority of my movie outings were self-purchased. ;)

————————————————————

Monthly

1) Bills

utility bills

Bills such as electricity, water, and the Internet connection. More necessities in life.

————————————————————

Twice Yearly

1) Car Service

car service area

Scheduled for maintenance every 6 months, it’s the essential part of having a car. But I will vomit blood whenever I receive the service bill.

The figures would be higher when parts being replaced due to tear and wear! :/

————————————————————

Yearly

1) Clothes

suave formal shirt

Believe it or not, I don’t have the tendency to buy clothes. I have a very small wardrobe.

————————————————————

Rarely

1) Electronic Gadgets

new ipad

As much as I want all the latest and coolest gadgets in town, I always resist myself from such temptations. I’d rather have them for FREE, or simply win one.

But unfortunately, my pet named “Lucky” ran away.

————————————————————

Well, you may think that I’m super rich for such careful spending habits. But truth to be told, my earnings are just enough to make a living. :)

If I’m rich, I’d be driving a Ferrari already.

Oh wait…

I already have a Ferrari! Cool or not? ;)
