If I inherited RM1 million from a distant relative, then my life would take a dramatic turn from what it is now. I would adopt the lifestyle of the rich and famous. There are lots of things I would do with the money.
Firstly, before I use the money at all, I would give away ten percent to charity. Ten percent of RM1 million works out to RM100,000. This is a lot of money to give away. It does not mean that I am a generous or saintly person. It simply means that when we get good luck, we must thank God by giving some money to charity. I would share the money among orphanages, homes for disadvantaged children, old folks homes and hospitals.
Next, I would buy a house for my parents and give them some money. They are not rich people. A house of their own would give them security. It would make them happy. It would also show how much I love and respect them. I honour my parents because they work very hard to look after us.
After that, I would deposit about RM200,000 in the bank for my future. I plan to run my own business one day. I am not very good in my studies. However, I love to work with my hands and I am good at repairing electrical goods. I plan to open an electrical shop selling household electrical products such as rice cookers, irons, air conditioners, washing machines, televisions, radios and hi-fi equipment. My shop would sell every product a household needs.
Once I settle my future, I would go overseas. This has always been my ambition. I love travelling. I have always wanted to visit other countries and experience different cultures. I would travel to England, Spain, France and Greece. I would travel to the United States of America. I would hike in Thailand and then cross over to Cambodia to see Angkor Wat. When I have visited as many countries as I want, I would go back to England and train in a vocational college. I would learn how to repair machines. Then I would work there for a whole to gain as much experience as possible.
All these plans...
