Everybody who lived in Malaysia knows what represent the 2020 numbers. It is the year where we’re aiming to be a modern country. Modern doesn’t mean a flying cars revving throughout the country, but modern means we’re the best in every aspect we’re involve. From the politics, administrative, and education systems, we must always be at the first class. Even our sports also must be the best. By the year 2020, Malaysia is prepared to compete with other big
bullies nations such as US, Europe, India, China, and Australia. Well, it’s Wawasan 2020 (Vision 2020) that I speak about.
But, last Friday, my housemates and I are thinking of other vision to quest. The quest was named as Living 2020. Thanks to our Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi who gave us inspiration for this new vision. During the budget presentation, PM announced that every first RM20 will be paid by government so it is free at first RM20. Before this, Selangor Mentri Besar had announced the first 20 of water will be paid by state government. Seeing the number as cool, we decided to target using water below 20 and try to use electricity as low as possible.
Our first water bill was RM2.85 while the second bill is RM1.05. That was after discount. We are very confident to get a free bill next time. Our first electricity bill was about RM 33 something and it goes a little bit cheaper for another month. Though it looks hard to reach below RM20, but we’ll try to minimise our electricity using. So, don’t say our effort won’t success because we’re very committed with this vision. To make this to a success one, it need more than commitment because management of these two necessities are crucial. So accidentally, it prepares us to success in the year 2020.
Ps/ it is good to start saving during fasting month!
