Of three things that gonna make an enormous hole in my Liz Clairborne last year’s birthday gift wallet this month:
1. For those that are close, you should know by now that my mum hailed from the land of Adat Perpatih and according to the N9 custom, the land/tanah/harta/rumah will be given to the girl in the family as inheritance. Considering that I’m the only girl in the family, means I’ll be bolot-ing having the harta all by myself la kan (not that we’re filthy rich pun). So, my parents and I are in the midst of changing the title of the house we’re living in to my name. Tell you, not a funny business. Been to-fro Pejabat Tanah-DO-Commissioner of Oath-LHDN (repeat sequence for three times) to get things done (and it’s not even done yet as at today!). And I don’t think there’s a need to mention how big a chunk of my moolah were taken out during the process. Seriously, not funny. And I don’t feel rich pun having a house under my name.
So, I got a letter from LHDN a few weeks ago to remit quite a sum of money by end of this month for the duti stamp thingamabob (itupun dah 50% discount coz of kasihsayang transfer but still). Aiyoh.. there goes.
Note : If any of you plans on changing the title of land/house, don’t bother engage a lawyer (you can save about RM1.5k alone) but have to bear la the hassle going to and fro turun naik pejabat daerah and all. I’d prefer that and can save some. TTe process will take up to 3-6 months and pls save a hefty amount of money before embarking on one. Later you might regret! (I’m speaking for myself sebenarnya ni) ;)
2. Just so happen, the Sabah trip is in two days. Haiyah. I’ve covered the flight tickets and accomodation for the whole family (read: 5) alright, but it’s the pocket money, island hopping trip, makan2, shopping2, miscellaneous I haven’t got ’em covered. However, that won’t stop me from reminiscing the 2008 Sabah trip with Ani and Eda and having a blast! But this time, I might skipped the Monsopiad Cultural Village show (heh, no fun without drama queen Eda to be shot at with blowpipe by the local warriors).
3. And oh why oh why my roadtax and insurance renewal is due on the same day as No 2. as well?
Cruel world. (Or is it just oblivion me?)
