My grandma's 80th birthday

After decided to have Grand Imperial Restaurant as my grandma’s 80th birthday celebration location from the hunt, my aunt went ahead with some discussions among the siblings and daughter in laws. We increased from 2 tables to 5 tables initially, but some couldn’t make it. So the final amount was 4 tables. 

Once I reached, my grand auntie said I slimmed down d! wahahahahaaa! 

"slimmed" me

Tipsy Brew O'Coffee @ Setia Walk, Puchong


The other day after dinner, we have about 45 minutes to spare. So, we went Tipsy to try their coffee. I had become a coffee joint freak. Not because I love coffee, but I like cozy environments.

Dinner location hunting.

Grandma’s 80th birthday dinner is coming soon! Me, my aunt and a cousin of mine went around looking for a place suitable for a banquet. Initially we wanna have 2 tables only. Just our side for the dinner and organise something else for grandma’s siblings in Jinjang.

this is my grandma. lol...

At first my aunt and my cousin went Imperial China Restaurant in SS17. I didn’t go along as I need to run some errands. After I was done, I went over and picked them up.

Once they got in the car, they complaint right away. 1, the service sucked. 2, the restaurant condition is not well maintained. Lol…

So, we went USJ 19 instead. The one in USJ 19 is Grand Imperial Restaurant and boy were we impressed. The manager’s service is good. Explained in detail and the condition of the restaurant is impressive. Very clean and the rooms are nice.


Of cos our choice is weighing towards Grand Imperial, we just need to choose the menu package now. :D

Money?

I’ve never been good with money. I spend every single cent I earn from my job, not leaving a single penny every month. Oh… how can we forget, credit cards? After spending every single penny in my bank account and it is not even pay day yet, what we do? We spend using credit cards, making what we spend negative from what we earn. 

This was me for the past… I don’t know… almost 10 years? And now… the effect kicks in. Although I can say not much comparing to those who need to declare bankruptcy. But still... and I have cut off all my credit cards at the moment until i get myself right on track again. So, yea... it made me quite suffocating every end of the month. 

About a month back, I learnt something from a friend of mine. Every month, set aside some money and categorize them what u wanna save for. Even if u need a folder to make sure they are categorized, do it. And I did, I actually got myself a small pocket folder to sort them out.

For example, I always struggle for money when I need to pay my car insurance every year. So I set a category for car. Be it I need it for the insurance or a little car pampering, I will use from that category. Maybe I need to have a getaway to somewhere near away from the busy city I would use from vacation category. And of cos, there will be many more other categories. But I just started this month, so I concentrate on car first bcos my insurance is due soon. Although it wont be enough to cover the whole amount, but at least my wallet wont have a big hole, unlike the previous years. 

So, I was reading, 13 money tips from the ultra rich and I am glad that I am practising most of what was listed. No, I dun aim to be a million or billionaire. I just aim to live not wanting to worry about if I am able to survive every month. 

What’s your way of saving and advise?
