In case you’re wondering, Non Sequitur is a satirical comic strip published daily and you can read it in the Life! section of The Straits Times. It is always witty and thought provoking, though I admit I’m not a Mr. know-it-all to always get the unspoken connotation behind each strip, but most of the time I do.
I spent some time in town today checking out my favorite shops – Kinokuniya Bookstore and Timberland, and that sensation of greed erupted quite violently; there were numerous things that I wanted to buy. Pricey things.
I didn’t buy anything at the end of the day (because I’m trying to cut spending) but really, do I really need any of those things? S$100 for a shirt? S$40 for a book? I can be a big spender but I also have a shrewd mind when it comes to comparing the price of something to its value.
The truth is, if we just think simply in a back-to-basics approach, what we really need is almost nothing other than our lives.
