You Got Me There, Fate!

I was going through my online banking account the other day when I noticed I had about RM2000 to spare. My dream ultrawide angle lens suddenly seemed close to becoming a reality!

Then I went home and checked my mail (the paper type, remember those?) and sorted out the bills. Lo and behold, I have to pay a notch over RM2100 for all the bills combined plus the loans repayment and miscellaneous fees. So today I paid off everything (besides the maintenance fee, which I'll have to pay at the management office on Saturday) and the bank account is as lean as usual again.

Life is cruel like that, giving you hope for a while before yanking it away. I'm sure I can hear Fate laughing his ass off somewhere up there, bummer.

I knew I shouldn't have thought about the extra money. I guess I thought too soon, sigh.
