Don’t be cheap on the things you use most

I come from a upper middle-class Chinese family. Where my dad gets paid a 6-digit salary working as a software engineer and my mom collects monthly rent from tenants. Even though they both could afford to splurge, they hold back whenever they see the... Read More | Share it now!
