With the advancement of technology, put it to good use. If you have petty cash or extra money, don't be like me and spend on whatever my heart desires. Give it to those in need. If you have allocated to spend, say, RM20 a day, keep RM5 aside. Donate, especially to the right channels. Malaysia is crowded with beggars lately. You can donate to them, of course you can. But the people on the other side of the world are literally fighting for their lives, starving to death. It's a matter of priority.
I'm going to leave these details here, in case you want to save lives. I will still be updating the details here from time to time.
