Do you remember the good old days when a lot of us describe our hobby as "mengumpul setem"? Hehe. I did so when I was a kid. Back then hobby "mengumpul setem" was like a trend or something like that. Everyone has stacks and stacks of "buku setem". Hehe.
Anyways, I have been hit by a new hobby recently. It was all because of my cousin, Amy. Last Thursday we talked about saving money, "perlumbaan menyimpan duit", "tabung rahsia", "tabung paksaan baby" and etc. It all refers to the ways of how both of us save money. Amy and hubby for instance have a seperate "tabung rahsia" each where each of them saves up money and put it in their own "tabung rahsia", sort of a race between them on who can comes up with more saving at the end of the day. MS and I on the other hand, have what we call "tabung paksaan baby" jointly where we save up money for our future baby (not pregnant yet btw, hehe). That seems the only way we can force and make ourselves save up every month. Mutual trust fund or even insurance based investment or etc is besides the point as they are of different league. The most important mission is how to literally save up cash.
At the end of our conversation, Amy said "Oh, kami ada cara lain jugak untuk simpan duit. Kami husband and wife collect RM5 note yang hijau tu!"...Whoa, I didn't give much thought to that at first until I was at home.
And now, I am proud to say that, I am one of them. A RM5 note collecter! as opposed to "pengumpul setem". Hehe. And since last Friday, I managed to save 5 pieces of RM5 note!! Yay! Sekarang everytime terdapat RM5 note, I will quickly simpan!! That's my new hobby. And harap-harap dapatla menimbunkan RM5 note sehingga jadi sejuta! Haha. Bukan main lagi angan-angan kan.
It's a thrill, really, coz you can't simply ask for RM5 note or even get RM5 note, it's like you wait to get it from some sellers or just about anyone you deal with. Memang best "game" ni!! You can give it a try too! Oh yes, why RM5 note and not RM1 or RM10 or even RM100? Because it's quite difficult to get RM5 note compared to RM1 and RM10. As for RM100, besar la pulak nilai, tu dah jadi tabung acara lain pulak kan. Hehe.
Now, what's your "hobby" like?
Ah, RM5 note, kamu sangat berharga! Hehe
