Well, definitely not a good year for almost everyone. Brunei oil and gas business hit even hard harder every month and price of the foods rise at grocery stores. Trying to fight hard on saving and made a good decision not to travel. Fuck I missed Japan trip!
Nobody knows when you might be next jobless victim. So better regret the fun at the moment and start having backup money in the bank are best option. Despite working a lot of effort putting money into the saving every months and less spending on toys. Both August and September took almost half just from car servicing. Damn, always these two months every year. I definitely got stress out pretty bad by it.
My mom especially is freaking stubborn and sometimes deserved some scolding to wake her up. The worst one was trying to force my nephew gave up his SG50 Lego set by giving to me. I am seriously loss of words finding out and really put me in a bad position as an uncle who only want to know if his school can made any purchase. It is unimaginable my mother would do such a thing. She just lucky my brother didn't find out about this.
Another issue is she just can't stop talking about how I missed my trip to Japan. I'm not sure if she already old or probably just stays too long in Singapore without realizing our situation in Brunei now. I just avoid her and walk off when she starts repeating the shits. Although its rude to your own mother, it has to be done from time to time avoiding family quarrels. I already had my goal in mind getting a house. Misses my travel or not, doesn't matter anymore when you got no roof of your own.
