Perkara Mewah dalam Kehidupan Azizi Ali
Azizi Ali adalah antara penulis kewangan yang terkenal di Malaysia. Saya petik sedikit temubual Azizi dengan The Star, yang berbentuk soal jawab dengan pembaca.
What sort of luxuries have you allowed yourself?
Answer by Azizi Ali
Not much. All I need is a good breakfast, a good book to read, a computer to write and time with my family. I have all that already.
My family lives in a nice house in a fabulous neighbourhood. We have a few items to make our lives more comfortable but nothing out of the ordinary. I think the average Malaysian has more toys than me. As I wrote in one of my books, visitors often comment that my house is spacious. My house is spacious not because it is big but because it is sparsely decorated. I call it minimalist decor. We still have only one TV in the house and a 10-year-old mini-compo. I don’t have any branded goods and see no use for them.
I spend money on quality (not branded) goods. For example, my mattress costs some RM20,000. If you’re going to spend a major portion of your life (eight to ten hours a day) on a mattress, the only sensible thing to do is to buy the best mattress you can afford.
