As far as i remember i bought two mobile phones, one is mine and the other is for family use, because i work in the other place away from home, communication is important, and i give present to my brothers and sisters and give some amount to my father and mother, small amount left for me in my first salary.

me too, i dont know what i bought on my first salary, all i know is i need to save money for me to take up review course for CPA board exam, unfortunately i dont pass. and i do not take it again, it is really hard. also on that time, i give my salary to my mother including my payslip, so that she is the one to keep my salary that i used on review.

Actually I do remember and that is a task for me! LOL I was in college and I bought an entire tank of gas (as opposed to putting a few bucks in at that time) and bought a college book that I neded for a class I was taking. Life was so much simpler then! LOL
