Tag: $1,000,000

Mistipurple and Eve both want to know how I would spend my 1 million if I was given the chance. 1 MILLION man! That's huge to me.

Anyway, let's see how I would spend that 1 million (1 million in NZ dollars ok).....

250,000 - pay off my mortgage
350,000 - property investments
200,000 - ING investments
60,000 - Luxury holiday for 6 (Rick and I, my parents and in laws)
50,000 - Fixed term deposit
50,000 - my dream car
15,000 - Shopping spree for my bro, and two bro in laws (equal share)
10,000 - charity (I do believe in karma)
10,000 - Rick's shopping spree
5,000 - mine shopping spree

So yeah, there gone the 1 million! Wah~~~can't believe I really sat down and seriously think about it. Like I am really going to have this 1 million like that. Hehehehe.

Anyway, thanks Misti and Eve for granting me the dream (^_^) Hehehehe. Now, I need to really drag myself back to the reality. Sigh!

Hi Doreen, You sure a very wise girl re money. Good for you. $50,000 dream car? Love to hear what is your dream car?
Btw Doreen, I have a special calculator that given a date of birth, day, month and year, it will tell everything there is to know, even when you were concieved, the day you were born, what happened, to good and bad numbers, why one cannot get along with someone, or which person suitable or not suitable, what animal, etc etc. Very comprehensive but scientific, about five paragraphs.
