first green attempt, failed.

I learned not to be easily persuaded and to trust my instincts more, today.

Taking my first step to being green, I decided to sell some of my books I've compiled over nearly 4 years being in Japan - the enormous Amazon boxes under my old bed was solid proof that I can really open a mini library in this house.

And it doesn't help that this afternoon my friend came by and almost fainted when I opened my wardrobe.

"YOU HAVE TOO MUCH STUFF..HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GO BACK FOR GOOD BRINGING ALL THESE?? HOW MANY CONTAINERS ARE YOU GONNA NEED??"

You know, girlfriends can be too blunt sometimes.

So I decided to let go of some of my books, for a start. Clothes and others will come later. (OMG the categorizing, the refolding, the picture taking, the refolding...)


So I went to this one shop recommended by my friend - cause apparently they're big.

Traded these books and magazines and got...210 yen.

210 yen = RM 8.06.

I'm never doing anything without getting a third/fourth opinion ever again.

So yeah, first attempt at being green kinda blew up in my face. If I knew I'd rather give the books to some Reading Club or Books Club etc for free, at least the books are appreciated there!!

210 yen...can't even buy two AA batteries. (cause on the way there I stopped by 7-Eleven to buy some for my bike's lamp, they cost 298 yen)

Lesson learnt.
