My family has this thing, "we always give without asking for anything in return" or "spend your money on people you love without thinking of getting anything in return". Its a good attitude but we might end up getting bullied if the person that we "give", doesnt appreciate it. At our worst time, my mana blame hersef. She said its bcos of gentics and therefore my sis will get bullied... I cried the moment I heard this. Its supposed to be a good characteristics but why people have to abuse it?
Many times, I also prefer to spend my money for the people I love. Sometimes I rather dont buy the things that I want as I wanna spend the money on something for the person I love.
So.... Why I talked about this? Ok, its bcos the back of my iphone 4s was cracked. I plan to get iphone 6 next year as Im still saving up. (Currently, I have some money issues) When my mama knows about it, she wants to sponsor half of the amount. I am happy but at the same time, Im abit sad bcos shes no longer working and yet she wants to help me. I felt abit useless.
I share my story about what my mama wanna do for me to my sunshine as I was abit sad.
Then on 26th Dec, my sunshine actually buy it for me T_T Its not just a simple Christmas gift. Its something way more meaningful. He said he didnt want my mama or me to spend that kind of money as well. So he will be the one to buy it for me. Im so touched and thankful.
I know he wanna get a new hp as well as his current hp is way too big -_- but instead of using the money to spend on himself, he decided to spend it on me. T_T
In return, I offered to give him my old iphone 4s so he can use it for work. Hes that type of person that dont mind using something thats already very worn out. He also dont keep on buying new clothes and stuff for himself. He will keep on using the same thing as long as its still can be use. This "ching cai" attitude is something that I like the most about him. Most importantly, he is the type that "others before self". A rare gem indeed. ^_^
Now I truly know how it feels like to have someone who rather spend the money on the people they love rather than themselves.
The new meaningful iphone 6! I will keep on using it until its no longer working. Hehe!
Thank you iphone 4s! You have serve me well :)
