Last 2 weeks, I was involved in a motorcycle accident. It was my mistake. It was raining and I’m on my way to work. Because I wanted to reach office fast, I pulled my motorcycle throttle up to 100KM/hr. because of the road is slippery during rain, my motorcycle skid when I tried to break. I ended up injuring my leg and my motorcycle and thank god nothing serious. And it also caused me to pay RM130 for medical bill and another about RM60 to repair the damage on my motorcycle.
If I be more careful during that time, I will not injure myself and will not ended up paying almost RM200 for the motorcycle and myself. Those money should be staying happily in my bank account waiting to be invested.
Last year, I was admitted to hospital and stays there for about 3 days because of gastritis. That’s was primarily because I did not take good care of my eating habit. I eat spicy food a lot and eat whenever I like. I sleep from morning to evening because I was working at night, and only at about 7.00pm ill have my first meal of the day.
And it leads me to stay at hospital for 3 days. If my condition worsen and the doctors need to do an operation, that would cost me some money.
Those are events that we can avoid and avoiding those events means there will be no outflow of our money.
Of course some of it happens even we do our best avoiding them. There is nothing we can do about it. But if we can, try to avoid it.
Take good care of our health, drinks water, eat good food, exercise and be careful when driving.
