Well we live well and not like falang. We have done a number of upgrades to out home, but all Thai style things. Our home is mostly Teak and requires maintenance and we had it restrained this year. We also as in the past support a couple of relatives at the university. We have also increased our support at the temple because of covid. Our house and car are free and clear.
However we don't budget much. So money isn't a problem with us.
For those that get by on less, it's good for them. I however am not just getting by.
