Earning Extra


My friend L is ecstatic! She’s just been able to get herself a brand new camera from her earnings. Please don’t ask me what the make or specifications of the camera are because I am not into this sort of thing and didn’t bother to ask!

What I DID ask was how she did it. L doesn’t go out to work and has young children to care for. Her husband, whilst earning a decent wage, doesn’t have spare cash to get “extras” that cost so much. So obviously I wanted to know how she managed to beg, steal, borrow the Vitamin M (did you know there was a Vitamin M? M stands for money!)

It turns out that she has become an affiliate to some sort of online networking where she promotes products and gets paid for it. Not bad, considering she has now earned enough for what we would describe as a “changgih” camera. (There doesn’t seem to be an equivalent word in English!)

Now, if I had the time, I might just follow suit…. Anyone else interested?
