The iPhone 4

You can't always just earn money or save money but not spend money! You have to be smart about saving, you have to be smart about spending too!

I have recently bought an iPhone 4 and it is only cost me less than $300 while the original price are $859!

How I did it?

I have a 3GS before and decided to give it to my friend's brother! in return I am using my friends phone which is a 3G phone, and at the same time I am trying to sell that 3G phone for him!

Found a buyer that willing to paid $300 for it! and my friend paid me $260 for my 3GS phone! in total I received $560!

I found the phone online ( similar like eBay ) and bargain with the seller and  he agree to sell it to me for $850

Do the calculation people :)

My new toy!

The Patient

Sometime it is just so frustrating, everything I do just doesn't seem working, like I am stuck in a big black hole and going nowhere! That is why I haven't been bother to update or even sign on to my blog lately; because I just can't bear it, take a note that I might be frustrated but it doesn't mean I am giving up.

Two week ago I went to Bunnings Warehouse and got myself some nice looking rock and seeds, instead of looking for thing to buy and resell; I thought I might as well just make it.

For almost 10 days I have been taking really good care of my little P$ANT and give them plenty of water and sun, but nothing seem happened at all, at first I thought I fail, the seed just die on me! But 4 days later ( that following 4 days I just didn't pay much attention to that anymore ), I suddenly saw some green coming out! I was surprise with joy.

Lesson that I have learn for doing that: plant your seed well and you will get your reward! All you need is a little faith and patient! Yay ~ I am back in business!

The Secret

"The Secret" is the first book I ever finish reading, and I even watch the DVD too.


This is the first cheque I wrote to myself in 2009, "hoping" I will be able to make a million dollars at the beginning of 2010, it sort of my 2009 new year resolution. 

It seems like just yesterday that I wrote the cheque, but now it is nearly the end of 2010! I am not even 2% close to my goal!

That doesn't mean I am ever going to give up, today I have rewrite my cheque! This time I will make sure on 31/08/2011, I will have a million dollars in my bank account.

Believe in yourself! Be yourself!

The Calculation

To be able to make a million dollars in a year time:

$ 1,000,000 / 365 days = $2739.73 a day = $114.16 an hour 

A CEO of a big international company might make that much of money a year, but how many CEO is there out there? Even a high pay lawyer or a doctor that earn more than $100 an hour won’t be making a million dollars a year because they won’t be working 24 hours a day.

It seems much easier for me to fly to the moon than to make a million dollars in a year time – mission impossible!!

Time length to make a million dollars for me:
  • Example 1: If I make $20 an hour (Less in real life *sigh*)
$1,000,000 / $20 = 50,000 hours
I work 40 hours a week = 1250 week
There is 52 week a year = 24 years (So it will be more than 24 years for me to be having a million dollars)
Note: example one is just pure income which exclude tax, bill, and expenses.
  • Example 2: If I am able to save $1,800 a month (For some people, it is their full paid)
$1,000,000 / $1800 = 555.56 month = 46.3 Years
46.3 Years?!?!?!?!!!!!!! I don’t even know if I will still be alive by then, even if I am; what am I going to spent it on - Medication or hospital bill??

That is the reason why working for other people will never get you anywhere. 

What am I suppose to do now or what can I do to make a million dollars in a year time?

Ever think of a method call “doubling your money”?

If you have $100, can you turn that to $200, from $200 to $400, from $400 to $800 and so on until you hit a million dollars? It will only take you about 15 times to make $1,638,400; does it sound much better than 24 years or even 46.3 years?


Well, if I know the answer, I will be the happiest man alive, but I will never give up, lot of research and never stop trying, I am sure it will get you there.

- Hair dryer $10

Total money made by selling my junk: Total $1,139
