the simple life
« on: October 11, 2018, 03:57:40 PM »
how come I'm surrounded by people that always want so much and always buying stuff. the brother and SIL (who is the boss and the driver of all the spending) always buy this and that, taking one international trip and a number of domestic trips per year. Co-workers buying fancy cars. I understand the need to enjoy yourself with your hard-earned money but when you have things, you need to maintain them and take care of them.

when I was in Kauai, the lady tried to sell me $2000 pearl necklace. I was like I buy $7 fake pearl and toss all of my fake jewelry into several big boxes and don't worry about losing them.

lol, I personally don´t care for simple life.  Money does contribute to like 70% of my happiness.   Trips and vacations are very important and material wealth makes the experience better.  I have been into glamming of late (glamorous camping) and to buy all the gears you need requires constant spending because they always come out with cool new stuff to improve your experience.


As for pearl necklace, I think every Vietnamese girl should have a few nice ones when worn with more traditional ao dai.  Cultured pearls are now even nicer than the expensive natural ones and even Vietnam now has a pearl industry.  Go for colored pearls (like dark emerald green or brilliant mustard brown) instead of the common white pearls.

I usually don't spend my money in frivolous things even if I have money. 

However, if I have money I would spend it all on building a pyramid  so that I can be buried safely with my ashes in a whiskey bottle..

the pearls she had were pink. I think she also had gray. I liked the pink ones. they were large too.

I like durability. for large ticket items I do splurge and buy good quality but for fashion, no because I loose earings, necklaces, etc...I'm not into wearing jewelry.
