My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal

This blog captures my updates and journey towards simple living and frugal lifestyle while enjoying the fact that money well spent is happiness.

  1. Being Tidy & Organized = Loving Myself

    by , 07-31-2014 at 11:43 PM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    I realize this after 3 nights of procrastinating cleaning my room..tidying up the shopping bags & organizing their content.
    I have been putting it off because I want to enjoy my small staycation at home.
    But looking at all that mess doesn't make me happy indeed.
    I decided to drop everything & begin cleaning, organizing. It was tiring, but the results made me feel good,peaceful & calmer.
    I realize that being organized means that I'm loving myself & want ...

  2. Enjoying My Day Off

    by , 07-30-2014 at 06:44 AM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    Today is nice & sunny..
    I went to do grocery shopping, had a nice lunch (frugal price but tasting good) and also stopped by the Gadget store to check an android phone with auto focus camera but it's out of stock.
    I also stopped by at a Chinese stall to buy steamed dumplings (dimsum) & yogurt at a small dairy shop.
    Now I'm home relaxing, thinking about cleaning my room & organizing the drawers.

  3. Blessing today : My Landlady Gave me Food for Dinner

    by , 01-22-2011 at 11:23 AM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    My landlady didn't know about my financial hardship, she always assumed that everything is good with me. She even thought I was a CEO or something LOL when I was making good income in the small firm (those were the good ol'days)

    This evening she sent me spaghetti. The portion is quite big. I ate half for dinner and the rest is put in the fridge. This way, I already have lunch for tomorrow Thank you God. Little blessings really count when I am watching every penny.

  4. Lunch Invitation (almost Panic Attack)

    by , 01-22-2011 at 08:13 AM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    Today I get a lunch invitation from a friend. I was not sleeping well last night and was not feeling well plus the weather is windy here.

    Since I haven't seen my friend (let's call her D) for a long time, I agree to meet her without considering my condition (my mistake) and also want to purchase some cheap cosmetics because they have a dollar store at that mall, I wasn't fit enough and was depressed. When I took the taxi cab, BF was on the phone and I was telling him that I was depressed ...

  5. Updates & Dinner Invitation Anxiety

    by , 01-22-2011 at 07:43 AM (My Journey to Simple Living & Happily Frugal)
    3-4 days ago, I was deep in depression and didn't have the energy and will to leave the house. I was too anxious to go out. Yesterday I forced myself to leave and do some errands, I was feeling a slight attack at first but then it fades and I was back into my normal self going on with the activities.

    Friday, 21 Jan 2011 Update
    Today I have a dinner invitation from a friend, at a restaurant. I am a bit anxious about going to a public place which is crowded and meeting people. ...
