Cost, or value?

Nothing is happier than going to movie with best friends, especially if it is “Confessions of a Shopaholic” on the screen.

OK, I admit. It’s a chick-flick. The film is trivial. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its moments, especially when the bad news keep coming in, and when you read that your once-most-treasured HSBC slumped to its 23-year low. Why not enjoy some amusing movie-going, popcorn moments? With a bonus too – a new song by Macy Gray!

As Rebecca says in the movie, there is a difference between cost and value. While someone is willing to pay a “Fou” drums which was used in Beijing Olympics opening for 50,000 yuan, other may prefer to use the same amount for a Hermes Kelly Bag. Both are totally fine, as long as you are not spending money that you truly do not and never will have.

Always distinguish between want and need, cost and value. Find something that worth investing in. Friends, relationships of trust and love, at last you will find value and happiness that comes with no price tag at all, but the greatest value any of us will ever find.

That’s the line of my mother whenever I come home with another shopping bag… 🙂
