Flashy Cars Everywhere: How Do They Afford Them?

These days, we’re seeing more and more big, flashy cars on the road than ever before. Just how are people affording them? Perhaps you know somebody with a flashy car yet they only have a menial job, to you’re just dying to know the secret so you can get your hands on a fancy car yourself. Let’s talk about how more and more people are driving these luxurious vehicles than ever before:


Priorities
The fact is, you may not think you have enough money for a flashy car, but people have different priorities. Somebody may value having a great car over everything else, so that’s what they prioritize when it comes to their finances. They may live in a tiny flat and eat basic food to drive around in that fancy car all day long.


Debts
Ok, there’s no denying that a large portion of the population are in debt up to their eyeballs. People will take out loans to get these fancy cars and end up paying them back for years and years to come. This option can be fine if you can truly afford it, but many people can’t and do it anyway.


Company Cars
Some people have cars included with their jobs. Vets for instance, can get not only a car but a place to live included with their job.


Leasing
Leasing can be a good option for a new car if somebody doesn’t have the money outright. It isn’t right for everybody though. The infographic below can explain this better.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
