The first salary of mine? Is part time job counted? If so, then that would be when i was still a college student. I think i got 200RMB, i did not spend it right away, i think i used it to pay for my monthly food.

My first salary was about 8 thousand pesos and i like spent it right away and it just disappeared though before that i had 4600 pesos as allowance for the two months of work i did. anyway, that was so small...hahahahaha. now im earning a bit more but still its just okay with me here. but if you were living alone and all your salary is for food, lodging, etc. it wouldnt be enough.
