Day 57: Living without a fridge vs Challenge of budget lunch

February 26, 2010 Leave a comment

I have just back from my the School B with my contract . And now I am facing another challenge of prepare my lunch for work with little budget. The school provides us rice only. Hence I have to bring my own food to eat with the rice. Of course, it is optional to have the rice or not.

Right now, I am on a $30 per day budget ( for meals) , which is around $4 USD. The challenge is what could I prepare if I don’t have a fridge at home.  I can’t cook the night before it, as food may go bad over the night.  It  has to be something I can make it quick in the morning before work or it would be ok to stay for the night till next day lunch time.

Day 56, 2010: Wearing dress/ skirt on every Monday? Hello?

February 25, 2010 2 comments

I tell you what, this thing has been annoying me for since the School B principal told me, we need to wear our own dress/ skirt on every Monday!!! Rest of the week , sport wear.  You have no idea why it  is a problem to me. Because I don’t wear dress/ skirt!!  ok I have 2 pieces here. 1st one is office looking dress, which wont suit for working in the kindergarten. 2nd one is a long floral skirt, very tropical feel and too long. I had an accident the 1st time i worn it. I felt on the bus’ stairs and hurt my leg badly. Not sure when did I develope that ; whenever I wear dress/ skirt’ of looking pretty, I got bad luck.

Anyway… what sort of dress/ skirt I should get for this job? I have been thinking and thinking over and over again and again. I can’t picture what should I be look like on day 1 working in few days… what type of dress I should get…My God..

Day 55, 2010: Made up my mind to work for School B

February 24, 2010 Leave a comment

I have made up my mind of working for School B now. I said thanks for other offers yesterday. And I am expecting a pay check of $2750 coming through as soon as possible. As I need the money to buy one blank excercise pants and a dress for my new job starting Monday. It was a tough decision as I don’t want to put myself into terrible life again 1. not making enough money 2. with terrible bosses or workmates 3. have to do or deal any thing out of my job duty.

My last job, I had to deal with or the bosses kept bothering me with their personal issues which were terrible and so drama. Hated to pretend ‘ I don’t know you are lying to my face or acting up’ . Oh once the boss’s wife asked me to get her husband MSN password as she suspect he was having affairs.  Have you worked in any situation like mine?

It is so humid in Hong Kong. My tiny bathroom is molded grrrrrrrrrr…. this kind of weather just make me so uncomfortable and sticky… but we still have a month to deal with it tho.

I have set this ‘ NEVER NEVER NEVER GIVE UP!’  as my screen picture, to remind myself not to give up. Well tough years ahead, let’s see how to tackle all the problems one by one. Thanks for reading me!!

A or B? Tough decision to make

February 22, 2010 Leave a comment

Everyday we are making decisions… some are easy; some are tough. Have you had to make any very tough decision? Which either one is good and you just not so sure what to do and it is affecting your future and daily life.

I have had a tough decsion to make before Chinese New Year. I thought I had made up my mind already. But oh God Noooo…. I got a phone voice message  from School A.  I know they gonna offer me a job. At some point I like this school too. Principal is nice and very educated and nice workmates it seem… as she mentioned most of them are Christians. I am thinking should i just escape from School B, which I contracted with and gamble on they won’t chase me for one month salary if I don’t show up? It is very bad thing to do… Just tell me don;t think too much and settle with the School B pls… tough tough tough…

Day52, 2010: Good friend saved me

February 21, 2010 Leave a comment

Some one told me when we get older, we tend to make fewer friends. It is to me . How about you? I became very careful to whom to friend with. Sometimes I pick from their appearance, attitude, races, background, personality etc… etc… And then there are different levels of friends. Closest friend, close friend, good friend, clubbing friend, workout buddy… family friend…And I have to make sure I talk the right issues tot he right one. Isn’t it complicated?  But you know what I like to stay home than seeing friends… But there is a friend I got to see from time to time. He helps me a lot. He is a dear to me. 9 years friendship, a friend who walk through the darkness days with me. I want to thank him very much.

Yesterday, I actually so desperate. I am foreseeing my bank account. I am so sure I don’t have the money for March. I was panic. I thought oh my God, what should I do?Should I kill myself as he can’t afford to lend me more money. I even searched ‘ the best way to kill myself’ I couldn’t find the best way. So I am still here today. And he called and he said he tried to sort out the money thing to help me. But I will have to wait till March 6th. I see some bright light in the dark. Although, I don’t know what to do with this 2 weeks, I remember What Richard and Barry said in the book- NEVER GIVE UP !!’ . We fail as we give up. Mistakes helps us to success.

So we came out with an arrangement with him of how much I will have to pay him back every month, which is ok.

To save money, these 2 days I didn’t go out to buy food. I have had some noodles and cooked congee with eggs and seaweed again. I have planned in next few months til Sept, I will live on $2000 budget for food and transportation per month. But I aim to just use $40 per day. Try to split some for saving and contribute tiny bit for my travel fun. Come one let me still dream to travel one day again.

Psychic? What do you think about it? Are you into it? Have you tried to get some readings done by medium? Any spooky experience to share?

I was very much into psychic personally. But now… not so crazy as before. Back to old days, I keep trying new mediums to read for me. I always wondered were going to happen to me. For example, who am I gonna married with? How many children? What does my soul mate look like? What is his name? Where is he from? When will we meet? Hows my career path like? How things lay ahead? I had millions questions to them. But even the same questions, I got different answers by different mediums. Isn’t it funny? I was told to have a asian husband and a Canadian white husband. I was told I would have 2 daughters, the other one said just one, and one said I would have a boy and girl :/

But lately, since I started reading Barry and Richard’s book, my mind has changed. So far, I am turning 36 soon, I still have no potential guys around… I started to think and try to live this life on my own. I am really trying believe me. I almost made up my mind and prepare to be single rest of my life. Hopefully not to have long life I wish. I don’t want to be alone like now all the time… for another 36 years…

Can you live without your TV or fridge?

February 19, 2010 3 comments

Have you ever thought of how would your life like without your TV and fridge? What would you do if you really have to live without them? mmmm think about it before you keep reading if you would keep reading my blog…

My friend asked me how long have you been living without a TV so far. I gave it a thought. I can’t tell.. may be 2  years?

He asked again how many years I live without a fridge? I said since I moved in this room. So it has been 3.5 years so far.

How do I manage days without TV and fridge? I live with my computer!! I watch movies, even tv , listen to radio now on my lap top. And I mainly eat out or cook simple things here. I just buy food which can stay ok without fridge. Cold drinks? Go to the store downstairs, just need to take a walk. Beside that, those are sugary drinks, not good at all. It is really good way for me to cut them out of my life hahaha.

One thing I must confess, which is I don’t have a closet also. And my friend borrowed my suitcase which supposed all my clothes hangaround… I must get her to return as soon as possible as my clothes now piled up like a hill here :/

If situation available I wish to move to a bigger place and have space for a fridge and a closet 🙂
