Is it a must for working adults own cars or at least bikes?
Normal CNY things, kena bombarded with questions like “what u working as, how much u earn, got gf or wife, got BTO etc etc”
This year kena asked about cars because a relative bought a car recently and all I have is a roadbike for cycling hobby lol.
For me personally I don’t find a need to own any vehicles, idk if it’s just me but I don’t find the necessity of having your own car/bike.
Sure it’s better for time spent commuting but having to pay so much for maintenance, fuel, the machine itself, several taxes and insurance, and besides MRT and buses are like everywhere, I’d rather use that saved up money for my own savings/leisure purposes.
So do y’all think all working men should own a car or that money can be put into something more worth it.
- You might “look richer” if you have a car, but the car owners at my age can barely even save anything every month. I rather let “look poor” but get a decent house
- Delay owning a car as long as possible. It will be cash outflow every month.
- Nothing is a universal must. (Except food water and oxygen….. not the main point)
Its just what you find important to you. If as you said, getting a car/bike is not important to you, then don’t. Conversely, if the benefits of having a car/bike is important to you, then to you it may be a must.
End of the day, most of these relatives questions are just to fill space. Chances are they don’t mean anything nor do they actually care. Just fulfilling some curiosity, liven up the mood(and in some cases, to show off).
Especially for those relatives that you see once per year oni, no need to keep in mind for too long, or take it to heart. They don’t know your situation any better than strangers from reddit.
