Money is getting "smaller" each day. Last time RM3 can get a large bowl of noodle. Nowadays, RM3 sometimes won't even be enough for a bowl of noodle.
But we are quite lucky as not far from our place there is this Economy Rice Stall which price is reasonable. Mamarazzi had blog about this here, They have plenty dishes.
Can save a lot if eat here. This plate of rice, with Taugeh, Vegetable, Taufu and chicken cost RM2-70 only.
Speaking of money...here is another story from Enid Blyton book
There was once a poor widow in Jerusalem. She had to work very hard for her money.
She went to the House of God often to pray. She love the peace that she found there.
It was Festival Week and as usual she went to the Temple to pray.
There was a Collection Box at the Temple where people are supposed to put money inside. And people are not supposed to put less than a penny.
The poor woman saw that people are putting more money that that.
Now, the poor woman only have two mites, which together made a half penny. She was ashamed to put so little into the Collection Box but that was all the money that she had. She went to a corner and put it in hoping that nobody would see. But somebody did see.
Jesus saw. He observed her since she stepped into the church and had thought that she won't be able to afford even a half penny. Then , he saw she put in two mites.
He thus told his disciples that he saw rich men putting a lot of money into the Collection box but the old woman put in two mites. And yet, she had put in much more that everyone else. They put in what they can spare, but the old woman had put in everything that she has. And in the eyes of the God, her two mites are more than all that the rich men had put in together.
What a lovely story. Even Mamarazzi aren't as generous as that. If only I could be as generous. But in these modern days, if I did that, most people would call it stupidity. Sad aren't it?
