I shared a video from NAS DAILY to my colleagues. Click here to watch! It is about a Singaporean guy, who has 150,000 SGD in his bank, spends nothing in his daily life. What he does is; eating leftover food by others at Hawker; picking up abandoned stuffs from rubbish bins; Receiving unwanted food/vegetables from neighbors and etc. Basically he doesn’t spend a single cent in a day and yet he survives… very well in this BIG and EXPENSIVE city.
This kind of lifestyle has no wrong. Just that a bit disgusting to eat what people leftover lor; strangers leh. 🤢 Well anyway, the thing is, how he lives may be horrible to others, but he seems to be contented with it. He loves it that’s why he does it. One may speculate that he is a slave to money that’s why he doesn’t want to spend at all. If this is the case, what’s the point of having money yet can’t spend at all. Others may agree that it is not wise to live a horrendous life like this.
But to him, he seems happy and has no issue about it. So back to the question how we define a life well lived? This is very subjective right? The definition of a contented life differs from one person to another. A simple life can be blissful choice to some people, some people treat wealth and power as life essentials, different people feel satisfied with different standards of living.
Ultimately, it is a personal choice.
Are you contented with what you have now?
I guess one thing you and I should agree is, we should be grateful for what we have now. Have gratitude towards life and life will appreciate you better. 😍
YAY!!! This is the 7th blog! I must keep it up and never give up!
