Ah Jon just finished his exam last Thursday and he is filled with passion "to do a lot of things" but he has no money! This means that he has to work to make extra money.
He saw an advertisement for a part time IT technician in the newspaper. He quickly called them up and went for interview on Saturday. When asked on his expected salary, he asked for only RM600 per month. I asked him how is he proposing to pay for his petrol, etc. Only then he realised that he is asking for far too little. Today he got a call and asked him to go and report for work. He was offered an extra RM300 to cover for his petrol.
So, if one is not fussy, it seems that it is not too difficult to find a job in Miri.
Talking about making money, our little boy Joshua is also finding ways to make extra money from his classmate! So during his birthday a few days ago, he lamented that he was probably the only boy in this world who had to buy himself birthday present! He was interested to buy a science book costing RM22 and he was short of 20 cents. So, I gave him the 20 cents he needed, brought him to the "book exhibition" only to find that the place was now closed! He was obviously upset about it and he quietly keep his money back in the box.
Joshua had been "feeding his money into the tiger's mouth" as Timmy put it. (Timmy felt that he wasted money to buy junk things/food in school). But he still has RM22 left considering that we didn't give him any pocket money at all!
