Hi claire, good for you. I was originally going for offshore visa which saves a lot of time and money but my circumstances did a 180 degree turn. I think I'll be able to PM you after you post a couple more times.

Well the thing is where i am if I was leaving all that would have been just wasted and my folks would have given me a nice lecture on wasting money. But that's just the way it is.

Please update your flag here .

I'm taking a third pay cut and giving up my share options which will pay out BIG in 6 months time but trying not to think about that. Life is precious, live every minute and as long as you have enough to get by then don't worry about money. You have to do what makes you happy. I don't want to sound morbid but if you knew you had a year to live, would you worry about a few months of gym membership or a phone contract? Happiness is most important so just let go of your material ties - the thing about golden handcuffs is they are made of gold leaf so you can break them whenever you want. If you are getting ready to move there are far more important things to worry about xxx

Love the line of thought. Absolutely right too. Life is too short to worry about a few hundred bucks... As someone who grew up in Asia, money is a huge thing to Asians - 99% of life revolves around money, which is sad really.

Live and let live. From that first post in this thread till now, I've definitely moved on.
