[TEST] 7 Times The Number "1" Left An Impact on Malaysians in 2016 - World Of Buzz 10

As Asians, being kiam siap comes almost naturally to us. Kiam siap is a Hokkien term for ‘stingy’ or as some of us like to call it, “money-responsible” 😉

As wasting money is an absolute no-no, here are some of the things us kiam siap Malaysians do:

 

1. Sharing “non-sharable” bottomless drinks

Some restaurants give us the amazing option to order refillable drinks – with a condition of no sharing. But most of us will be guilty of doing otherwise anyway. What? Save money ma.

2. Shaking the petrol nozzle for that last few drops

After we’re done with pumping petrol into our vehicle, we sure shake shake the nozzle a bit to ensure we get every last drop of petrol. Although we know lah a few drops won’t make a difference, but hey, expensive leh petrol. Especially after the price hike.

3. When you check the price on that outfit you like

Yes it looked good, but the price looked even better. We know better than to spend a ton of money on fabric that’s sewn together and completed with a label on it. No thanks.

 

4. Spending much longer than needed when buying something

Only because we’re doing intense calculations in your head to compare prices and determine which is the best value buy.

5. The pain of knowing you could’ve bought the same item for much cheaper

That moment when you finally made a purchase on something you like and your friend tells you about another store that’s selling it for a much lower price.

My heart. It hurts.

Next time, just be sure to compare prices first, or get these super value items listed in Shopee’s top picks category here.

 

6. Asking for discounts and freebies at retail stores

Especially when we buy electronics, most of us can’t help but ask for discounts and freebies. Free screen protactor also can. We ain’t leaving without a bargain!

7. Starve yourself before a buffet

Having a dinner buffet? We’ll have an early lunch or light snacks to make sure we have room for more food. Not to mention whacking all the ‘expensive’ food. Carbs? No thanks. Give me all the sashimi please and thank you.

8. Pretending to be interested and trying those free samples

Let’s be honest, we aren’t really keen to buy something we don’t need… but hey, free samples! Take only lah! I’ll take one of that, or maybe two.

9. Registering a few accounts with different emails to claim for free stuff

There are a lot of brands who give out freebies to first time users and we all know that – be it free gifts, discounts or trials. But of course, we’re all guilty of having cheated the system at least once before.

10. Going straight for the sale section of the store

Those ‘new’ items displayed in the store don’t even phase us. We’ll just come back in 6 months when there’s another sale.

 

11. Buying all the things you need in the future during sales

Christmas gift? I’ll buy it during 11.11 or 12.12. Best friend’s birthday in June next year? No problem, I’ll buy it during Year End Sales.

Every smart shopper knows that sales are a reason for us to stock up on awesome gifts that are placed at a much lower price 😉

Yes, it’s called shopping smart!
