Money can't buy you your parents. (sorry sad truth on this beautiful thursday morning).

All your genes, and your upbringing shaped by them overtime!

So be grateful for the time you have with them. And pass it down to your kids in the future! Nothing to do with money.

Just spending time with them doing the smallest of things.

Ultimate truth. In our search for finance stability, we tend to neglect them. Every call and Every opportunity is Good to be Cherished!

Money is important. But these are 5 things money can’t buy.

  1. Health

Dont spend every moment of your life making money, only to spend the money on doctors in later stages of your life.

  1. Happiness

Money cannot be happiness. You might think that condo or that rolex watch will make you happy, but it won’t. Humans always want more if you’re not contented.

  1. Family

You could have a trillion dollars but you can’t buy one more day with your family when they are gone.

  1. Love

No money, no honey; but you can’t buy true love.

  1. Peace (or conscience)

Try doing something illegal for $10M. Try eating and sleeping in peace everyday for the rest of your life.

Money can buy you sex, but can’t buy you love.

Money can buy you house, but can’t buy you a home.

Can’t remember what else was said along these lines.

$ can't buy a lot of things. Most valuable thing $ can't buy is Time.

We only live once! - So cheerish our lives! No one should take own life.

Be a child once - So tell mummy less tuition more fun and balance with school work and learning at outdoor, a balance and flexible, resiliant child is what helps ace future AI economy!

Be a primary / secondary student once - So go for that leaving school holiday with your friends ! They may not be your friend later.

Be a Poly / Uni student once - So go for it! Take part in ECA, join the club, take up responsiblity, it may seems sucks all that you do is work and no one appreciate. Someone will, when you graduate, you're organization and leadership skils will show and shine.

  • Fall in love, over puppy love and before the complex world and busy / hectic no life work schedule! So fall in love, go for that girl / guy that you wanted! Here you can FOMO a little, so that it may be the one that goes on live with you for half a century, or maybe he/she could be an important one in your life for that moment of your life. Heck! YOLO! so go for it ! Just make sure to balance school work and love life ! :)

So we cannot buy Time. Since 2018 only happen once and 3 months left!

What are you waiting for ? Go for it for whatever you want to do! Go ! Go Go!

Is never about what money can buy or can't buy.

Many people have money and only spend it on themselves or others they wanted to impress.

The others might not even last in any relationship.

For love ones who stick with them, they might just get

  1. the cheapest useless items

  2. and worst the anger from the outside world.

Just because the "person with money" thinks that he/she have money and ignore people who cares about them and not their money

Unconditional Love only comes from parents.

MOST Parents might lecture or nag or bash you but eventually they want the Best for their children.

Some parents might even choose to sleep on the street to prevent arguments for their child who have a spouse who dislike them. (if they all live together)

I saw these from all my communities work.

Rather, the Qs should be the willingness to use money to do what?

IF one is willing to, with or without money, they will

  1. make time to visit love ones

  2. buy useful gifts that create more convenience for love ones

  3. create a fund that could giro a good amount of money into love ones account so they can get enough to use.

  4. discuss with them about the world and SCAMS that are circulating around

  5. discuss with them about safety on the road especially with Personal Mobility Device (PMD) on the road.

Everyone have their own struggle.

For me, I will resolve all the problems I faced and I will share with my loves one.

In this way, they will not take us for granted if we have always shown how capable we are.

They will also learn problem solving skills that really work.

The good karma will go on with all the positive sharing.

Thats just me.

我是不是很棒棒啊?

I'll say something people think money cannot buy, but actually it CAN be bought: TIME!

Example: If you took a Grab to work (say 15mins) rather than took public transport (1h15mins) then you just bought yourself 1h to sleep

If you hired a maid (say at $600 a month), instead of doing 2hours worth of chores every day. Did you not just buy time to spend with your children or doing things that matter to you?

I dun think i can buy 48 hours thought. I can buy services to save time required. But I can't expand my 24 hours to 48? Or you mean leveraging on other's time to do things that you want to be accomplished? Still my time is limited to 24 hours a day though...

Family

real happiness

a sound mind that is guilt free

A lot of people have betrayed themselves and others for money but at the end of the day would they be able to sleep at night while enjoy that money ?

Money can't buy good health and your loved ones. So adopt an active lifestyle, appreciate and spend more time with your loved ones as life is fragile

Money cannot buy happiness, cannot buy luck, cannot buy a sense of belonging.
