Cliche 2

Tell me these are valueless


One of my friends' MSN personal message wrote "I need money"

This reminds me of the cliche "Money is not everything, but without money one can do nothing"

This is especially true when you are the one who is in-charge of managing finance either in your family or just yourself.

Last night my best friend told me she wants MONEY to travel when I mentioned to her how marvellous and breathtaking the scenery of Christmas Island is. As our society is getting materialistic, you just can't deny you don't need a single penny to survive. Tell me what can you do with 1 cent? It's almost valueless that it will be demolished starting from April 1, 2008. Perhaps Malaysians think 1 cent is too much a hassle. =.=

Tell me you don't need money to have your elementary education. Though government had demolished the miscellaneous charge but you still need to pay for bus fare, exercise books, stationery, etc

Tell me you don't need money to eat and drink. Yea you can plant, but the seeds still need pennies!!! Even if you plant, you still need a prodigious amount of money to own a piece of land!!!

Tell me you don't need money to buy TV sets, computers, telephones, mobile phones and vehicles. If you say they all are luxuries, I give up then. All these are considered as necessities since the boom of technology.

Tell me you don't need money to get true love. In this contemporary world, a strong relationship is enhanced and supported by MONEY.

Tell me you don't need money to cure diseases. *touch wood* Even if you go to government hospital, you still need to pay for some charges. Worse still, if you opt for a better service and care, you need to pay for deposits before you get the treatment.

All of all, we, humans must still be reminded that though money is powerful it can be evil!!

For most people, coins are crap (do I say crap? I mean scrap)!!!
They don't even bother to keep it but definitely not me
=.=
