Dear all,
Why do you tend to say ... wa bo lui (i don't have any money) instead of lui bei kau (money not enough)? Someone told me that if i tend to have the habit of saying i don't have any money, i will have none!! What do you guys think?

Lols a superstition. A superstition always frighten you with something not very good will happen to you IF you don't obey. But its for your own good right?

For what i think, it depends on how sincere you are. Got money, but then you tell ppl you no money. then ppl curse behind u. lolol

So just follow it la. When people sincerely ask to borrow few $. Dun ngiau chi ngiau chi say "wa bo lui" then added with super long alasan saying you need the money for this and that. Borrow money.. buy closer frenship lor.

If you tend to do that to people, people will do the same to you one day you ask for money.

I think "bolui" is more smooth to the tongue then "luibeikau", that's why people tends to say it. besides, if got 999,999 ringgit in the account, can also say "luibeikau" right?

About borrow money:
Lesson one: Don't lend money to rich people or people whose parents drive Merc or live in detach house one. If they really need, they can sell the Merc/house for cash.
Lesson two: When really wanna lend, think at least 2 times through head. Or ask the person to call back later at night after you think, then answer.

"Bo lui" is easier to say rather than "lui be kau". That's why most of the time when people wanna borrow money from us, we say "Bo lui ah!!" Hehehehe..

If I wanna borrow money, I will say "Wa bay kau lui" (I not enough money), instead of "Wa lui bei kau" (I money not enough).

I heard this from someone, "Why say I can't afford it. Instead say how can I afford it."

But this "wa bo lui" can be used or interpreted in many situations.

1) Friend/strangers asking/borrowing money. You don't want to give them the money, so you say "WA BO LUI". It meant no harm or negativity, you say it just to get out of the situation.

2) Salesperson in supermarket/retail store talking in detail why you whould buy their products. You say "WA BO LUI" to get out of it.

3) You really have NO MONEY in your wallet at that moment, and someone need to borrow money from you. So you way "WA BO LUI".

4) You are DEAD BROKE. You say "WA BO LUI". BUT hey, it this situation, instead of telling yourself WA BO LUI, you should really focus on "WA ANCHUA CHUI LUI" - HOW TO EARN MORE MONEY.

Telling yourself in the long run that you have no money, after some time your mind will subconciously accept the fact that you actually have no money.

WA BO LUI, if taken literally is not good for the mind.

FOCUS on HOW TO EARN MORE MONEY.

The best way to curb spending is to start at the source. If no control, whole mountain of money also will flow down the drain one.
