People who can't read sign....grr

I hate people who use the express check out lane when they have more than 15 items in their trolley/baskets. F**king hell, they can read but choose to ignore the sign.

Why? Why can't you jsut queue up at the normal check out and be patient? Well, it is your bloody choice to do a big shoppng so you better be prepared to wait ....

So poor me, holding only 6 items in hand, had to queue up behind an old couple ad an African family. They both have a trolley full of stuff!

The old couple obviously think they have the privilege seeing they are old... FINE... , oh well, not really fine but if I yell at them, I would be the young girl who yell at elderly.

Now.. the african family... DOH... not only they have over 40 items in their trolley, also 4 of them stand at the checkout, totally block the check out that I was suppose to go. Then I had to push their trolley away, then they hit me wth their trolley. Bloody hell, I just pushed it arder to them, tey got the message and kept their trolley away from me. Then I questioned the check out girl LOUDLY "How come you let those with more than 15 items to use the express lane?" "What can we do? They dont listen" "Well, tell them to get off and get back to the normal check out!" I then proceed to stare at the African lady next to me, message conveyed!

Oh, I also wanted to take out my phone and take a sneaky pic of tis lady, she wore the most hideous outfit.... a sleveless dress that show her tummy with a fishnet footless tights! OMG.... what the hell is she thinking?

Living the Frugal Lifestyle - Part 1

So one of my new year resolutions is to have 5k in emergency fund, but before i start saving for this emergency fund. I have to save up enough money to furnish and also for some applicances that the house needs.

So I am going to do this $21 challenge that I learned from . Basically, i am only allowed $21 for my weekly grocery, exclude toiletries.

I have decided to start today (Sunday) and learn not to buy anything from the shop and only eat off the freezer, fridge and pantry.

First I have to a stock take and see what's in the fridge and pantry and do a menu plan so that I know what to cook and what do I need everday.

Today, I havent spent any money. I have plenty of left over food in the fridge, thanks to my dad. I also made some low-fat apple muffins because I want to use up some sad looking apples.

I am off to do a stock take now to see what's hidden in the fridge.

Will keep all of you posted.

Lately, I am suffering from pretty severe PMS, it could be due to stress or simply hormone changes. I have never hadsuch bad PMS before. I was shocked by my mood swing and I could be VERY angry and worked up over the tiniest thing.

I can sit on the couch watching a comedy and cry within the next minute. I will get upset with Cheska easily...

Matt was scared of me, he tried to stir me up one night for some fun and I ended up throwing things aroud and threaten to get out of the car (we were driving to the city). After that, I felt so puzzled, I had no idea why I could get so angry then ....I told him, "I think I am having PMS" but having bombarded by my anger not long ago, he chose to be quiet this time.

I think I should start taking some EPO else Matt will send me to the Psychiatric ward one day.

New Year

Hello Everyone! It is 2010 and I wish everyone best of luck in 2010, lots of happiness and $$$$!

So 2009 has finally gone, what an interesting year it was; property boom, economy crisis, refugee problems, bushfire and etc. I dont think 2009 was a great year to be honest, it wasn't that great for me either.

I think the most interesting that happened to me was I purchased a home and land package and the construction is going to begin in a few weeks time and my house will be completed in around August/September. I know I have said this many times on my blog, but I am BROKE... and 'BROKER' after the boxing day sale and Matt's birthday. Sigh... I really should remind myself to stop spending and start saving for all the furniture needed for my house when it is ready.

I realised I didnt make any new year's resolutions last year and I did feel a bit empty after knowing that, I felt like I havent achieved anything? Then I realised I did plan to buy an investment property in 12-18 months in Aug 2008. I guess I achieved something then?

I want to set some goals for myself in 2010 but I am afraid that I may not achieve them. No harm listing them down I guess :p

  1. Lose another 5kg (seems like this is forever in my todo list for the new year haha)
  2. Furnish and move into MY house
  3. Help my parents to migrate to Perth so I dont have to fly to Malaysia every year
  4. Fight for a pay rise
  5. Declutter and stop buying unnecessary stuff!
  6. Have 5k in emergency fund by Dec 2010
  7. Manage to sew a dress all by myself!

well, I guess thats enough for now. I think the 5k in emergency fund a bit unrealistic seeing that I will need to spend a lot of money in the new house, putting security screen & door, skirting board, alarm system, retic, land scaping.

Anyway, happy new year!
