Got a shock when I log in to see my Citibank Credit Card account. I’ve spend around $300 lately and I totally don’t know until I check the account. Nope, there isn’t any error or fraud case. They are really spend by me. Just that I have no “feelings” that I’ve spend so much.
So much for a new Credit Card owner. The previous month was still pretty alright. I was rather careful with my spending and still have a rough idea how much I’ve already spend. So I know when to tighten my wallet. But this month was bad. I keep thinking that I’ve only spend around maybe $100++. Didn’t expect it to be $300.
I think I’ll need to be more careful. Although $300 will not make me bankrupt, but its not good to overspend. And worst, overspend without knowing. I’m glad I went online to check how much I’ve spend. Cannot imagine what will happen if I didn’t check and continue to spend until the bill comes.
Look like I got to do some action. You see, I have 3 bank accounts. 1 for the bills, 1 for usual spending and 1 for savings. My monthly pay will go into the account for my bills. From there, I’ll transfer money to my savings account and my monthly spending account, leaving some money to pay the bills. The savings account is untouchable. Money only goes in and seldom comes out. (unless I want to buy some big item like laptop). The usual spending account is where I put the money that I can spend for the month. This way, I can judge if I’ve overspend for the month.
Good plan hor? Until the credit card comes into the picture. I can no longer depend on my usual spending account to judge my spending for the month.
So my new plan is, get a money box. You know, those tin box with lock and a slot for your to put money inside. So what I’ll do is, whenever I use my credit card, I’ll withdraw money from my usual spending account and put it in the money box. That way, I can still track if I’ve overspend.
Sound troublesome, but better than overspending without knowing. So for the rest of the month, I think I’ll just eat grass ba. Any kind soul willing to sponsor me some salad dressing?
Another high profile murder case in Singapore. Another dismembered body found. But what is shocking this time is, the head was found at Orchard Road, near the MRT station. Which crazy murderer would dump part of the victim in orchard road?
These people are sick. You already murdered the person, why can’t you let her have a full body at the funeral? Why did you bother to chop her up into so many pieces and dump them all over the place? And even if you want to dump the body, of all places you got to choose Orchard Road. Crazy. I know there is a say “The most dangerous place is the safest place”. But this is not the case. You might as well dump the body behind the istana guard house!!
See lah, ganna arrested within 12 hours. Serve you right.
Sometimes, I really wonder what is in the mind of these murderer. Why can’t they think of a proper place to dump the body? Look at that Ah Hao in Huang Na’s case. He is at least smarter. He place the body in a box and threw it into the forested area in Telok Bangala Hill. At least it is much harder to find. It even took the police few hours to search for it after he told them where he threw the body. But too bad, he made a few mistakes when being investigated by the police. Else maybe the case would had still remained unsolved.
Then there is another case few month back where dismembered body were found along Kallang River. STUPID. Never ever throw the body into river. Confirm 100% wash back to shore. If you want to throw into water, go rent a boat, drive to the open sea and dump it there. Dump river sure wash back to shore 1.
Stupid fellow, don’t even know where to dump a body. Singapore got so many nature reserves with thick forest. Just throw in the middle of the forest lah. Make sure it is deep in and no boy scout or NSF will pass thru that area. If possible, dig a hole and bury it. Or since you all like to cut the body, then cut it into small pieces and throw into the rubbish chutes lah. Best is for those new HDB flats where the whole block share 1 central chute. Make sure it’s properly wrapped up in plastic bag.
Don’t be a fool throw the body into Kallang River or in middle of Orchard road lah. You might as well put the body at the front door of Police Cantonment Complex.
Will I get into trouble if someone follows my suggestions on how to dump a body?
This is an interesting program that tell you were will you end up in if you were to dig all the way down, thru the core and to the other side of the earth. (That is provided you don’t melt while you are in the middle of the earth)
Reminds you of the stupid movie call The Core. Haha….
Oh ya, in case you are interested to know, the other side of Singapore will be Venezula. Hola!!!
Seriously, was there a war in the 1st place? Apple fire another shot by releasing iPod Nano. Colour screen, light, thin and comes in black and white.
Well, creative, whom declared war with Apple some time back also have a MP3 player with the name Nano. Zen Nano Plus. Seriously…. cannot fight. What war? Creative never fired any shot at Apple. We only see them following the footsteps of Apple.
Soon we will see Creative and other iPod wanna be companies releasing thin MP3 players too. Wait, creative used to have a slim MP3 player call Muvo Slim. But also no fight lah.
You see, everyone is not interested about features of your MP3 player. They want style. Look at how iPod shuffle, a simple MP3 player with no screen at all manage to sell like hotcakes. Look at all the iPod series, do they have radio or voice recorder features? Nope.
I look at my PDA today. It is in such a sorry state. No, physically, it is still in mint condition. But the internal software is in a mess. My PDA crashed when I returned from reservist in July. I think it must had miss me too much that it crashed the moment I use it when I come back from my incamp. I have no choice but to hard reset it and reinstall everything from my backup. But somehow, there seem to be some problem with the backup and some program cannot work.
It’s Sept now. For 2 month, my PDA has been just a glorfied organiser. I didn’t bother fixing those software that were having problem after the hard reset. I’m too pre-occupied by other stuff to fix it.
And it is not just the PDA itself. Life have been a mess ever since I come back from reservist 2 month ago. Today is exactly 2 month after I come back from ICT.
Everything is in a mess now.
My PDA can’t sync using bluetooth, and I didn’t do anything about it. My PDA and my HP cannot pair with each other, and I didn’t do anything about it. My HP screen have problem and need to be send in for repaired, and I didn’t do anything about it. My laptop’s bluetooth have problem pairing with other device, and I didn’t do anything about it. My laptop virus scan subscription has expired, and I didn’t do anything about it. My home networking cannot share file and printer, and I didn’t do anything about it. My blog is in a mess, and I didn’t do anything about it. My room is ever messy, and I didn’t do anything about it. My office work been piling up, and I didn’t do anything about it. My work’s documentation is in a mess, and I didn’t do anything about it. My school grades are falling, and I didn’t do anything about it. My 2 important assignment are going to be due soon, and I didn’t do anything about it. My exam is coming, and I didn’t do anything about it.
My life is miserable, and I didn’t do anything about it.
