100k. What would you do with it?

Postby lumka1 » 27 May 2012, 05:11

If you get a cash windfall of NT$100 000, what would you do with it to maximize your investment?

That's not a lot of money. Hard to do something with that. Except-Invest in yourself.
Save it-You will need it down the road for something. Life always finds ways to make you use it.
Pay off some credit card debt.
Take a trip.
Buy some furniture.
Fix your car/scooter.
Buy something that you need.
You could always invest it in my scheme, grand master plan, it's called freedom 45.

I'd go down the 7 and buy a beer or two. Hell, if I had such a dramatic windfall, I may even buy a SIX-PACK!

Throw in a pack of Lays and have a REAL celebration.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there
Chasin' down a hoodoo there.

What's a pack of Lays without a tea egg? Live it up! Carpe diem!

Okay, all you wealthy bast--ions of the internet can take your hundred Gs to the local Seven. I'm interested in what a real answer might look like, and I be the OP is, too. He's asking, after all, because he knows it's not much and wants to make it grow. Seems like a fair, intelligent question to me.

Alright. You want an "intelligent" answer? If I had a paltry 100k disposable, I'd get on a plane and visit my parents for a month and spoil them rotten.

I've never had that much money in my life. So I'd probably cry. I will spend 30 000 on gadgets, give 10 000 to each parent and save the rest.

Fixed my intelligent typo for you, Jimmy. What's your problem, anyway? A trip home to spoil your parents sounds like a sweet thing to do, and possibly a great idea for you just about now. I hope you get to do it.

Never mind. That's Spanish. Just never mind,

I didn't see a typo, housecat.

I've been in Taiwan for 11 years, and each year I have gone back to visit my parents and spoil them rotten. For the last two years, I have, unfortunately, due to financial constraints, not been able to. During that time, my father has had a stroke, and is suffering from skin cancer. My Mum had a heart attack. So yeah. If I had a disposable 100k, it's a no-brainer.
