I remember vividly on Friday nights, we used to do karaoke sessions where everyone took turns to sing a song, including our parents.We had these sessions recorded and then sent to our neighbors for analysis.
Eventually, we outgrew the karaoke sessions and now, I mostly do the listening rather than the singing.
My parents taught us from an early age the value of taking vacations at least once a year.
Though they wished we could go for many trips annually, we were not well off financially and my parents had to work creatively with the little they had, sometimes saving the whole year for a single trip.
We could have used credit cards, but that would have only plunged us into more financial woes.
My father was very strict when it came to finances and he cautioned us against using debt to purchase luxuries.
