The year didn’t start out right for me. In fact, it was very painful. I was with my family in Hong Kong then. Hong Kong Disneyland to be exact. Ironic since it’s the happiest place on earth as they say.
The trip turned ugly when I became over-excited in Vivienne Westwood store and shopped like crazy. The sale drove me wild and it became too hard for me to resist. I bought a bag, a wallet, shoes and sunglasses – all of them I charged to my credit card. I also happened to impulse-buy a Lumix FX38 camera right before I went to the Westwood shop. So once again, ladies and gentlemen, I have credit card debts. I never learned eh? Mom went ballistic when she found out how much I spent. I would have too if our places were reversed but she said some pretty harsh words which infuriated me. Of course, that resulted to much drama which ruined the fun in the trip for everyone. The shopping spree and the drama happened on the 30th of December when we were still in Kowloon. We transferred to Disney on the 31st and the moods were much much better then. However, things became nasty again on the dawn of New Year and I don’t even remember what triggered it. I just got so fed up that I wanted to quit working for the family business and move out of the house as soon as possible.
Things are much calmer now but I can’t afford to move out. I can’t afford to quit my job as well since I need money. Since I don’t want to become overburdened with installments and interests and all that credit card shit, I want to pay as much as I can ASAP. Now I’m selling my Nikon D80 (waaaah), my ibook, my Canon Ixus 60, and even my whole toy collection (It breaks my heart to part with my Gloomy Bears and Nyanko plushies). *sigh* I brought all of this to myself. Now I’ve finally learned my lesson because I don’t want to use my credit cards anymore except to pay for my blogs’ webhosting. I’m happy with my Vivienne Westwood buys and the Lumix but I can’t afford to make the same mistake again because I have nothing of value left to sell anymore. Yes, lesson learned.
