Project MISER Day 1: 7-11 is the spot

7 eleven

I went to the local 7-11 after work yesterday to get some groceries a.k.a dinner:

7 eleven dinner

Spritzer Natural Mineral Water (RM 3.80)
Dutch Lady Fresh Milk (RM 5.10)
Kit Kat Chunky International Recipe (RM 2.50)
Mars bar (RM 2.80)

Total: RM 14.20

7 eleven total

This is the last time I’m getting bottled water. I drink 1.5 liters
at night and I must remember to bring the empty bottle and refill it at
the office’s water cooler before I punch out at work. It’ll save me RM
114 this month, nearly half of the entire month’s quota. This is one of
the things I realized I can save but I never do – I get bottled water
everyday for drinking.

That’s the end of Day 1…I spent RM 36.70 which is definately not sustainable. I’ll try harder during Day 2.

Remainder: RM 213.30

Project MISER DAY 1: Panafen Plus Lunch

cf perth

I just got a care package from a friend in Perth, Australia who sent it via an intermediately due to her distance. It’s Panafen Plus, a preparation of 200 mg ibuprofen and 12.8 mg codeine in a 48 caplet box.

I took all of the 48 caplets for a heroic 614.4 mgs of codeine, just
nice to put me into a good mood. Actually, I’m lying, I miscalculated
and went OMFG after I used Calculator and found out that it was 600+
mgs of codeine instead of the 300+ mgs I calculated in my head. I’m
still going to sit it out anyway. :p

cf note

The Panafen Plus came with a note from my friend in Perth who wrote
it in her handwriting. I haven’t received handwritten notes in a long
time.

This is what the Panafen Plus by GSK blister pack looks like. Inside are small easy-to-swallow caplets.

Down the hatch! That’s my codeine lunch.

Mmm…I can feel the warmth now…and I’m kinda nodding off. Opiate naive again….no tolerance.

Remainder: RM 250

Project MISER RM 250

project miser

Project MISER (Minimum Income Self Encouraged
Rations) RM 250 is a project I’ve self initiated to see if I can
survive on just RM 250 alone in the month of September, 2006. The RM
250 (about USD 66) has got to cover my expenses for:

Gasoline (Petrol)
Food and drinks
Cell phone calls
Cigarettes
Nights out

And so forth, but NOT:

Rent
Other fixed miscellaneous bills like utilities.

The aim of this project is to determine whether I can survive on
just minimum wage for food and gas and nights out (probably would have
to ask some people to buy me lunch, that’s admissible) for this month.

…and also coz I’m fucking broke after moving and a large purchase.
I even had to borrow the RM 250 from Cherie to take a photo with my
cell phone! :(

Things that are admissible include people buying me food (which is
kinda essential to the whole idea), company reimbursements for things
like toll booths and so forth.

There is no existing food stock but there’s a carton of duty free cigarettes.

That being said; let the games begin. =D

Seed fund: RM 250
