Erm.... back home? Let me see:
- I have two maids.
- I have a driver, and two cars.
- I have gardener and security guards...
Can't afford all those here!!! Have to settle with one maid (never abuse her, here or at home - gordie, you must either pick the right acquaintances or stop making generalizations!), no driver, shared security guards and no garden let alone a gardener!
But I do eat at home (wifey's a very good cook - love ya babe!), only drink beer/alcohols very occasionally (or when it's at company's expense - not because am cheapskate but really I don't fancy it too much!). Live in district twenty something instead of in town. Take car or train to work (depends on mood) - no taxis.
Saving roughly about 30% of my income.
