Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Borak borak -

I can’t stop on­line shop­ping! I just love the con­ve­nience of it but now I’m broke as hell. Please help. Tharshini, Cheras The only per­son who can help you is your­self! And it’s not that you can’t, you just don’t want to. If all else fails, can­cel your credit cards. I had a mas­sive credit card debt for years, it’s no fun I as­sure you. Don’t get to that point. How do I sat­isfy food crav­ings with­out ac­tu­ally eat­ing what I crave? Lee, Ke­pong I once read on Face­book about the three-day rule: when you want some­thing re­ally badly, hold off for three days and see if you still want it. If you do, live a lit­tle and go for it. If you don’t, then crav­ing re­solved! It has ac­tu­ally worked for me, and not just with food! My col­league likes to cut his nails at his desk. How do I tell him I don’t ap­pre­ci­ate the stray fin­ger­nail near my key­board? Amir, KKB ‘Dear col­league, I don’t ap­pre­ci­ate the stray fin­ger­nail near my key­board. It’s very dis­gust­ing. Eeeyer ...’ How do I bail on plans with friends with­out hurt­ing their feel­ings? James, Hulu Se­lan­gor My sug­ges­tion is to just bail ... if you can’t be both­ered to catch up with them, why are you so con­cerned about their feel­ings? One of the big­gest lessons my late fa­ther taught me in life is that friends come and go; if they stay for­ever, then it’s a bonus. They all can’t be bonuses!
