more in life

Oh i am knackered. Only got back after hours of spending outside and not to mention its super duper hot today. Pregnant mom and hot weather doesnt blends well i bet.

Well, I realise today how time is running very very FAST. Its nearly year end and definitely so many things happened throughout the year. I gain some I did lose some aint it.

I vowed to make things move better in early of the year, and I glad some turns as how i intend it to be. Things like moving to a new house, add a family members(along the way now), starts on saving again after house movingA(slowly progressing) and so many other things. But some things still at the same pace which seriously need some nursing to be done ie debt, bad spending habits( slowly ditching..i did) and whatever.

Yes, I still have that impulsive spending habits esp on Efi’s stuffs. I go slow on mine in fact very very slow on my stuffs and I can say I stop at all in shoes and handbag already. The last splurge was eons ago. I even have no desire for it at the moment(i hope it will not diminish at all coz It’s really fun to look at all those beauty stuffs at those racks at that certain shop..oh u know what I mean…) but it did save a lot of money. I even channel all my paid post money bidding for other things on the internet which is so good of myself. I realise I have biggger obligation now and adding a new family members definitely is not like buying a piece of cake right.

And today, hubby and I register ourselves for Hajj. A first time for hubby and a 2nd trip for myself. KT Clan is proceeding as well and we are trying to get on board in 5 yrs time. That’s a big target if Allah permits. So, part of all my reality needs, kids, education, living and all, my soul need some funds now to cleanse it. It may be a huge thing to start saving at, but I do need it. I miss those Holy land badly. And knowing last year at this point of time, I am running around excitedly waiting for my flight to leave for Madinah, the feeling is just priceless. I pay for any figure to get those feeling again. Those serene peaceful feeling of being in fronf of the Kaabah, the beauty of being at the Arafa’, doing those tawaf and just sitting in Al-Haram.

Well, I may not be a perfect Muslim but I am trying to be better. If u have the same intention, seriously, take those early baby steps. Don’t be afraid. There’s always a way for us to be there. The first one is as simple as ABC. Trust me.

Hence, I am trying(the key words here) to start saving again for the big journey. Sacrifices has to be made, definitely, coz in the mean time, I still love some little luxuries in life like the chance of seeing other places, buying some lil stuffs to cheer me up and dressing up my boy and my other kid later. So, I am back to decluttering and reorganising my life and my money and everything. If u have the chance remind me if i get skidded away please.

Till then, toodles.

p/s: But, I still need to get a new compact digicam as the old one kong’ed’ already.; Tense tense tense.

    you spend because you still can. i used to have balances of just a few ‘puluh sen’ from gaji long time ago. shopping tak ingat dunia punya pasal. but now, it’s 10:10:70 rules.
    10 for savings
    10 for giving
    70 for spending

    and I am looking to decrease that 70 to maybe 60 or even 50 and increase my saving (nak pegi haji before 40 insyaAllah) my husband is quite calculative. bukanlah kedekut but he doesn’t buy things we don’t really need. enough said.

    btw, let’s share some ideas on digicam tu. akak pun nak beli baru ganti kodak tu. i’m thinking on canon. bukan dlsr lah.

    oh, I love you for inspiring me to visit the holy land. Ye la dr membeli brg itu ini tah mcm2 benda tak penting baik pergi haji kan. Dah la benda tu perkara yg wajib (bg yg mampu). At least pergi haji dulu then baru lah pikir yg unneccasry things tu (like how I drool for super MAC computers and DSLR campur dedua tu dah leh gi haji).
