What do you do with a Windfall?
In the spring issue of Schwab's On Investing magazine (not a Malaysia magazine), they asked 12,000 of their clients what they would do if they received $25,000 unexpectedly. The results were:
62% - invest the money
29% - save it
24% - pay off debt
14% - spend it
6% - donate money to charity
If I have a RM25,000 windfall, I will spent 1/2, invest 1/2. How about you?
If the windfall is RM1million then I will seriously consider "instant retirement" from day job so i can do something different to earn money.

Why disparage the US DOJ's US$1.7 billion asset seizure suit if Dato’ Seri Abdul Rahman Dahlan is not prepared to categorically deny on behalf of Dato’ Seri Najib Razak and Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor that they have received US$732 million in cash and a US$27.3 million pink diamond pendant respectively?
