I have a friend working in the financial industry earning about $5k per month after cpf, minus away his bills and loans repayments, he has about $3.5k to spend every month.
He has been spending almost all of his money visiting the geylang fishtanks, like literally every night for the last 2 months, then once he no more money, come and find me and kpkb about having no money to survive and borrow money from me.
I asked him honestly, do you see what’s wrong with your life? but he just gets defensive and insists that he’s not doing anything wrong.
It’s really sad to see how much he’s been wasting his money and his life. I’m worried about him and I just want to help him get out of this destructive pattern.
And I also want my money back, he owes me about $1k and everytime I ask him about paying me back, he tells me “next week”, then next week I ask him, he tell me “next week” again.
Has anyone else been in this situation? this is really making my blood boil. How did you handle it? Is there really no hope left for him (and my money)?
Here are what netizens think:
- Invest in a ‘A’eroplane Cup / 飞机杯‘’ when need go Geylang, take out the money to be spend for the Geylang session put on table. Next take out the aeroplane Cup staring at the money while using the Cup. When finished using the Cup, take money from table and put back in the wallet. Happy man Happy wallet.
- If u can’t afford to borrow him money, just borrow him your hand, settle.
