While I was spacing out on my precious medical leave, wennnn gave me something nice to day-dream about. She asked me... "What would you do if you had a million?" Wow. A million. Try as I might, I cannot imagine what it would feel like to hold a million bucks in my hands. Would I swim in it? Would I go nuts and throw piles and handfuls of money into the air just for the fun of it? Oh, the many possibilities of fantasies! But... coming back to earth. This is what I would do if I struck the lottery tomorrow and had a million to spend.

1. Quit my job. Yeah, I gripe about it so much I may as well give it the old heave-ho since it's not bringing me anywhere where I want to be.

2. Pay off all my debts. Study loan, personal loan, car loan, credit card bills, what-not. It sure would be nice to be debt-free. And I need to curb my spending too. Cannot spend that million all at one go.

3. Buy a house. Whoa there! Didn't I just say I wanted to be debt-free? Yeah, but I want the security of my own property. Just one house would be enough for me. If I could, I'd buy two houses - one for me and one for my parents. But houses these days are so expensive I don't think the million will cover two houses unless I go to some ulu place or outstation.

4. I'd invest the remaining moolah so that it would give me back returns so I can live on that for the rest of my life or until I find a nice rich husband to marry and leech off. Ahahaha. No FTWM for me. I wanna be a tai-tai (as Simple American correctly deduced) and a SAHM to my future kids. And since I do blog for $$$, that would be my personal pocket money lah.

So there you have it. What rinnah wants to do if she had a million. And I cannot be greedy and keep the million to myself, so I will send the money-making tag machine on to:

giddy tiger (so she can be a SAHM too!)
paris beaverbanks

Since I'm on the subject of moolah, I might as well ask around. *grin* To my fellow Dark Side bloggers in Malaysia, does anyone know of how reputable the VMI card is? I am thinking of getting it so that I can transfer my PayPal monies and finally see the results. I'm getting a bit tired of seeing the amount rising in my PayPal account and not be able to use it since I don't do online shopping. :o)

You're the THIRD person to tag me with this! Does this mean I have 3 million bucks to burn now?

But what you want to do is pretty much what I want to do with the moolah too!

healy said...

What is your email actually? About the money, why don't you transfer to someone that actually do the pay pal transaction for bloggers through his account? Just email( is in my blog) me if you need anything detail.

rinnah said...

healy: Cinderella had a poor life until she met her Prince Charming. Hehehe. Real-life Prince Charmings are hard to find, so a girl's gotta look out for herself.

You can email me at rinnah.lee[at] I heard of a few of these people doing it, but I'd rather try getting the $$$ on my own. Heheh.
