Definition of SPLURGE is to indulge oneself in some luxury or pleasure, esp. a costly one. I must say that I am not someone who splurge very often. I am somewhat careful with money. I don't think I am kiamsiap. I am just careful. For certain things, I can be pretty generous with money as well.
> I can donate to charities without thinking, especially if the amount is not big.
> My heart breaks when I see old men or women selling things by the roadside. I will usually buy from them.
> I think and think and think for a very long time before I decide to spend on something more than RM100.
But I am pretty lenient when it comes to shoes and bags. Hehe. They are my weak points. Anyhow, I do not buy expensive shoes or bags. My shoes are usually less than RM50 and my bags are also usually less than rm100.
However, nowadays I tend to splurge more. Peter & I went for spa treatment last year. And I just spent USD17 for a box of 1 pound chocs. And we are planning for a luxurious wedding anniversary at Casa Del Mar & TRR, Langkawi. Oh ya, there was a Triumph sale in Metrojaya @ Island Plaza just now and I bought 5 bras at one time! Haha.
All in all, I think everyone is entitled to splurge on themselves once in a while. As long as we have already saved a portion of our income before we splurge! For me, savings comes before splurging! :D
