ASB, T-Shirt, Shopping and Money

I came back at 11 something last night and was too tired to write down the events that entrailed. So yesterday, I when to check out my ASB. I was glad that I got around RM700 of profits out of the whole sum, meaning I had a little over RM700 extra to spend on what I’ll be buying before flying off to New Zealand next month. It’s sad that my long break is finally coming to an end, but at the same time, I’m glad that I’m now a second-year student. Getting through the first year was tough; I hope I’ll do a lot better this year. I withdrew a small amount of RM1,500 from my account to buy some stuff.

Back to the topic at hand..

After going to the bank, I picked up a few blank shirts I I ordered for t-shirt printing purpose. I hoped to settle the order of 20 t-shirts and 15 mugs before next week. Once I’m done, I may be able to get a clean profit of around RM10 per shirt and RM8 per mug. That’s already a lot to me. Sounded a lot for 20 t-shirts, but  those include design charges for 3 different designs. While designing is fairly easy, completing a satisfactory design is definitely not. Especially if your customer is very fussy 😛

And then I went shopping (again)! Initially, I wanted to find a new luggage but later decided to buy one in KL instead. Spent Rm135 on a set of affordable women suit (suit, shirt and long skirt), RM112 on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, RM20 on two cheap black tank-tops and RM105 on lingeries.That made a total of RM372, so I still haveRM1128 left.  I think I’ll go buy some sports wear with them. And the luggage. And maybe, a new mp3 player. Mp4 makes no impression on me because I don’t like to watch videos or anything on small displays (as I blatantly expressed in one past blog post). So now, the important stuff left to buy are:

  1.  Sony Vaio CR 23/GN: RM4,488
  2. Motorola V9: +- RM1,500
  3. Sony DSC-T20-B (RM1,199) or the DSC-H3/B (RM1,399)

Aaah! Lots of money! Feel so sad to watch them flow away from me :((

    Wow! You have listed what you want to buy. I like Vaio too but I think I can't afford to buy one.

    I thought it will be cheaper to buy something when you were overseas.

    I wonder if we can use the motorola v9 overseas or you are buying for someone here?

      I use Vodafone prepaid overseas, so no prob with what type of phone I buy. The band is the same. If I buy the phone there, chances are they’re going to be locked :(. And there aren’t much choices there too. Models are released way slower. Even 3G was only recently introduced there (around June 2007, I think).

      It’s not cheaper to buy things overseas, actually, like when Vaio gets imported to NZ, it would cost just as much or more 🙂

    Oic. Then NZ is not a best place for shopping. But the scenary is beautiful I think. Have you go around NZ? hehe. Just curious.

    I wonder what is your project with the 20 t-shirts and mugs.

    • Adlina says:

      Definitely not for shopping. As a tech and gadget lover, NZ makes me suffer. Haha… Oh, the project will be reported in due time~ Now I’m also thinking of opening an online t-shirt store selling affordable custom-printing as well as ready-made design pertaining too tech, computer and stuff. Cafepress and Zazzle are not suitable at all for Malaysian market, so I’m thinking of opening a small online store soon 😀
