Used to be.Did the car thing,the spur of the moment flash holidays or weekends away, clothes, watches etc etc.If I saw something I thought I wanted,I bought it.No thought just buy. Many years ago I went out to top end supermarket here.In lobby of the shopping center,downtown Orchard road,there was a stand with a guy playing a piano .It was a music shop doing a promo offering lessons and various musical instruments .For what ever reason the sound coming from this guy playing just completely encapsulated me and I promptly went to the sales guy and bought the piano.After it was delivered I paid for lessons.Went to one ,went home to practice, and never went back and never attempted to play it again.Just sat there in my living room .Sold it years later for next to nothing.Never made it to the supermarket that day either. With a family much more sensible over the last 14 years .Still travel up the front even with the family these days when flying, but all the bells and whistles I don't do anymore.Family well being and future comes first.
Here's what I think...Mobile phones and especially contracts have always been a source of amusement to me. People pay £50 - £60 or more per month for phones they walk down the street holding, or plonk down on a pub or restaurant table that shouts out look at me look at my phone! It's got bells whistles take multi pics that i never look at again, calls are in stereo and texts in 3D. Alas my old Blu has calls in mono only, texts in SD, altho both unlimited and only 1gb of data of which I use less than half. BT charge me a fiver a month which I find is cool.Oh it does take pics when needed, rarely. Messed about on a bike when I was a lad, loved the smell of Castrol R in the mornings, but decided semi-rural Lancashire cobbles not conducive to biking. Have to admit that when I motor to the West Coast or up to The Great Glen I do admire the multitude of bikes one sees these days. I suppose my car is my one possession that could be described as materialistic, but my prized bit of kit has to be the Tag cutters that enable me to move about undetected, the cat like his new collar so a double bonus. I suppose in the end one man's luxury is another's necessity......
Says it all , but life is funny we can really enjoy our work ... is it as it’s all we know and our value system at the time ? I enjoyed lots of my working life , looking back it seems odd 🤣🤣 Always learning 😊
I've not got a lavish life style as some, not my thing, I do like for convenience having 2 cars, one hardly moves just sits outside the house, but for £20 a year road tax, it can stay there, stops the halfwits from parking on the grass verge (a pet hate of mine ). Not bothered with new phones while the old one works that does for me, still on a ropey Samsung S6, my indulgence is traveling, that I am greedy of, tomorrow is promised to no one, live for today, things are just that things, I'm jealous of no one who has more than i do
They are unreal , millionaires living in 3000 baht rooms , knowing where the 20 baht coffee is 🤣🤣 One was chatting to a girl in Bamboo for half hour , he never took her she went made your waste my time ‘ the dyed hair lothario thought he was pulling a bird 🤣🤣 Another millionaire ran out of a visa shop when 12k was quoted 😂😂😂
Some eejit sat boring the trunks off me about all his money. I knew he was full of the brown stuff and finished my drink went to check bin and he done the same. His bin was 700b and he started kicking off and threatening to smash the place up. Laughable.
I always stay pretty up to date with phones etc but they are normally on contract so I'm not really treating myself. When I lost my parents I treated myself to a new car, kept it for a year then got shot of it, Now I'm a bit more sensible. But if I'm to be honest if I had the money spare I'd probably buy more shit as well as spend a bit on the house. As Parky said bikes are toys and even the wife has given in to the fact that if we move to Thailand i will be getting another big bike.
John it’s a forum , discussion board ... If a person has rigid views , others views can upset them as they are forced to look at their choices or in many cases ‘Societies’ choices ... You also state you spent a fair bit on electronic stuff , where is the change ? Its a good subject , let it flow ... rather than try to control who inputs ... That’s not a good sign from you .. 90% of your posts are attacks on me .. so there won’t be ignoring of them that’s a fact ... Stop whining and let it run .. Ali 74 below ...
John it’s not a personal attack , you do those towards me time and time again ... Where is the attack ? Saying you get burnt by women ? Surely you can take that you say far worse to me .. Its not general you said about yourself , there are lots like you which try to live ‘How you should ‘ whatever that is .. That you can’t accept that is your issue ... As an example look how Muslims , West Indians and Africans treat women... That you are unable to see a difference, perhaps wonder if you have been sold a concept is your issue .., Ali said if a man thinks the same at 20 as he does at 50 he has wasted 30 years ... Saying you seem lost and get living is hardly personal, I just quoted things you have said... eg Bank book hence my view you seem lost ... Feedback is not an attack , saying get living is not an attack ...
I don’t care for the latest gadgets as I barely use the ones I have. My car although a 2016 model is a VW Polo, it’s reliable and comfortable that’s all that matters, fancy clothes are for women. Money and wealth don’t impress me. I’ve met many a millionaire in Pattaya (most of whom I think are talking out of their arse) and quite frankly they were either boring or scum who got their money cheating or deceiving others.
You were like that as the system had you ....., pay your tax keep buying shit you don’t need ... never retire etc.. You were thinking about letting your house and living here , you asked ‘What about my stuff ‘ sling it I told you ... CDs , records etc .. just stuff ... If it anchors you it’s like a wife you don’t like , no good ... Get living John , you seem to think about the past so much and do nothing with the present ... You wrote on here ‘Some people get pleasure looking at a bank book ‘ I can’t see how nor do I know any people , money is worth nothing till it’s used ... enjoy your life enjoy your lifestyle .., You sound very lost John , why look back 40 years .. do something today 😎 The way you live your life it’s as though you are scared to do anything , so you do nothing ... Except get burnt by women 🤣🤣🤣
Sure relaxing 😎 eating food overlooking the sea is boring , you make me laugh ... You do nothing but decry Thailand 🇹🇭 Yet you would like to be here instead of UK 🇬🇧 in the pouring rain and freezing weather .. What do you do that’s not boring ? You are 67 soon ... You have still not said what’s so enthralling in your life , after all travel to Malaysia is boring , Jomtien is boring lol .. Eating nice food is boring is it ? You talk absolute rubbish , you are so jealous of people here it’s not true ... So eating zero to ocean at a fish restaurant, boring is it ... But it’s more than 100 yards from Soi Honey ... 🤣🤣🤣 Your Thailand 🇹🇭 is 99 baht roasts , free pies 🥧 and Soi honey ... your UK 🇬🇧 life is even worse ... tragic you are ..
