Duty as a Brother

My sister gave me a ring last night, and we talked for more than 1 hour. We seldom talk so long on phone, i think maybe she's bored and wanted to talk to her big brother :) At first she was grumbling about how her part time stuff was troubling her... then she told me something which i thought i knew, but i didn't

My sister is quite hardworking, she still study her master while she's having a whole damn lot of work to do. And every month, after paying all her debts, she doesn't really have much left...which the situation is also same like mine~ lolz~ Well, i think most probably everyone in KL will have similar kind of problems. No matter how much you earn, you will never have enough to spend; coz higher salary = higher commitment = higher debts...

I felt kinda pity for my sister, coz her water boiler has spoiled few months ago and she doesn't have enough money to buy a new one... as a result, she has to bring her water from her company and drink... i mean wth~ i drink a lot of water everyday... how could she drink so less? And she has been eating bread as her dinner for a lot of nights becoz she doesn't have much money left...

When i heard of this, i feel pity for her... and as her brother, i feel that its my responsibility to take care of her and make sure she's not gonna suffer all these. But apparently, i dont earn much as well~ hehe... but i'm gonna buy her a water boiler and some biscuits and fruits for her during my lunch hour later... After my class tonight, i'm gonna bring her the things and some money too... hopefully she'll be fine :)

A man who cares for his sister is a good man for marriage.

Someone once told me this.

You are a great brother, and I am sure when it is your turn to find a wife, lots will be queuing up the line.

hey i just got back from putrajaya marriot, nothing there except trees, it was a pity we couldnt meet up. but someday we will. cheers!

wat ur sis wants is a bro. ofcos u r. hehe.. a bro who she can talk her heart out n ur there to listen is enuf for her. obviously u 2 had atlked for more than 1 hr. providing her $ n food is only a temporary solution yah. but being hardworking alone is not enuf for sustainability n it may drag u into more prbs. esp at the expense of health n state of mind. wat she's doing is wrong. she must control her finance dat must goes with proper planning. going into debts r wrong planning. when she toils with life like this, there will be a price to pay for health when age catches up.

its an easy excuse to say $ earned is never enuf. the solution is not in $ but the state of mind. contentment. prudent. this will take time n effort. ur support will help to ease things but there must be controls. if not its back to square 1 or worst, things get downhill. human is like that. since some1 close is helping, i can drag on or make a little more debts. be careful yah. if u wana help, help wisely.

coming back to u, if u wana help, make sure u got the means n control. u too will have to tighten up ur belt. in state of mind, can u live up to that for few mths? there will be expectations, responsibilities n liability. $ always ruin relationship n family.

p/s taking drinks from company for personal use is stealing.

1st work out ur own finance. then find out hers.

ur parents let u 2 out to living, u 2 shud be responsible not only to them but also to ur ownself as adults yah. u r also responsible to ur siblings.

koala not intend to scold u or wat lar. if ur my nobody, i couldnt care less. i better go play games. :P
