Living better?


I had a mini argument with emak on the same topic again...the reason why I ditched my fulltime job and decided to live a miserly life instead. I almost laughed out loud when she said the miserly part. She also asked me the same question which has been asked 16564x before. Don't I have a dream of living better like having a car like my cousins? I won't bluff anyone that I'm getting much much lesser that I used to but in my definition of living better, I am not living miserly. I still can eat good food and I have a shelter over my head. I don't need to pay road taxes or worry about the petrol price hike. It doesn't mean I don't wear jewellery that I cant afford it. I am not a typical woman who likes to accessorise myself. But I have a good camera and the xbox360 and ps3 to make me happy. hehehee. :P

I'm sorry to sort of disappoint you, emak, but I'm sticking to my decision to work on my own. Well, maybe ask me the same question again in a few years time. In the meantime, I hope you'll support me.

i feel for you, sis. Insya-Allah, rezeki utk kita sentiasa ada. The best thing is, you're doing what you love and you're not slaving for anyone. I hope your mom will understand that sooner or later

my dad was not happy when I decided to quit....
Alhamdulillah after many years have passed, everything kinda falls into places..

InsyaALLah one day akan terbuka pintu hati ur mom & she'll understand ur decision :)

PS: In my inlaws side, I yg paling "miskin" cos tak banyak emas-emasan...hehehe

Good for you! Stick to your guns. Parents don't always know everything.

My mom said the same thing too when I quit my job to be SAHM, but years later when she sees me still happy with my own family, living comfortably with yearly holidays, emas bertepek, saving growing....she kind of shut her mouth. Not only her, I tell you, my aunts would say the same thing too, but I buat pekak aje.....most importantly I don't depend on anybody handouts!!

i understand how u feel..i think for their generation they perceive think differently (what do you know, maybe we will have our turn when our kids are all grown up..heheh)

but insyallah, i do think after awhile when she see that this is what you want and happy with, it will be ok :)
