We Prefer It Simple

I’ve been in an irritable mood this passing week. Mainly infuriated with people who persistently assumes we are wealthy and mighty enough to own luxury cars, high-end homes, jewelleries, and the list goes on…

If you’re one of them, here’s my response to your many assumptions about us…. Oh and answers to your “Why don’t you buy a car? You can easily afford it!”, “Why not reside nearer to the city (pricier rents), no??”.

Is it any of your concern if we prefer spending on taxi/ Metro train rides during our impermanent expat life here?
So what if we’re the minority that rather save and spend within our means and needs??
Does it matter if
we’re happy residing slightly away from the happening and lively expensive town??

Since being in this bling city, many we know – and noticed – splurge on (at least) a luxury purchase. Branded cars, gems, villas, weekly spas, weekly make-overs… All the wants money can buy.

And indeed, like most, we can afford too… But it was never in our veins to overspend and try playing rich to FIT into their ‘celebrity’ lifestyle!

Mainly because we both are, by default, simple contented beings. Period.
