Thankful

Do you know the difference between a left hand menu person and right hand menu person? When I first heard of it, I didn't know what it was but I was a right hand menu person. Simple, a left hand menu person is the kind of person who will only look at the left side of the menu, ordering food & beverages based on their taste preference. Whereas a right hand menu person is the kind of person who will look at the left side of the menu, short list the food they would like to have and go to the right side of the menu, to finalise their order after taking into consideration the prices.

How many of us can afford to be a left hand menu person? Rarely. Even if you can afford, but you would subconsciously look at the right side of the menu. The day when you can be a left hand menu person is either the day whom you are a person who sucks in planning your expenses despite not being able to afford it or the day when you simply can afford it and you appreciate good food.

The other day, I went to Blank Canyon in Centre Point and I subconsciously became a left hand menu person. I realised that when WY settled the bill and asked how much was my food before tax and service charge and I told her, "I don't know."
 
In a way, I realised I've been doing much better these days, financially. I thank God for the blessings and luck so far, my parents for their tolerance and financial support in the past years despite me having a full-time professional job and my colleagues whom have shared their experience and offered their assistance so far so as I can close more deals. 

I no longer struggle to pay the bills or to have some decent food on cash, instead of credit cards. That is really, phew..... what a relief. However, the more comfortable I am presently, the more afraid I am to loose the comfort I'm having. And as the financial debts improved, I yearned for more commitments. Strange... Just when I've lifted a fair amount of financial commitments, I'm now working towards getting myself another commitment which would appreciate instead of depreciate.
