Hi every body,
I'm from Viet Nam, I'm student now and I have to move to big city for education. I think the budget from my parent is not enough for my regular spending Fx: tuition, renting house, food, clothes and fee for going out with my friends.... so I have an part time job when I have a free time, I'm a server at wedding party and it just take me 2-3 hours with a small salary but it not only help me pay on a house renting but also I have a working experience...
Student life is a difficult time but always be funny and happy.

oh great experience

hi lam hoai an. I am very happy to meet you, a Vietnamese student here. I am the same to you, I have to leave home for Ho Chi Minh city to learn at a  university. My family is not very rich, so I do everything I can  to earn money. Fx: try to learn and search for scholarships, work as a private tutor. Sometimes I really feel tired but 
Iam happy and pleased because I am growing up.

                      Saving money is a good thing. It learns us how to orgonise our life and how to be independent.
                   Money can easily be faded away if we misuse it. Its like a morning mist. So, it's better to be keen because this can learn us the value of money.'
