LS essay – Quality of Life: Poverty
During this holiday, I went to visit my relatives by taking tram and MTR, after taking transportation also walked for a while to arrive there. Instead of taking taxi or buses, the way I used to get there cost me time but I saved money. Although I felt tired after walking and I wasted time on travelling, I still felt happy to do so because I am living under poverty and money is the most concern to me.
For the food I had during the holiday, I only had three simple meals a day. There was no longer any teatime or snacks, and also I didn’t have the chance to eat in a restaurant anymore. I had to walk a long way to supermarket and buy the breads for breakfast, eating sandwiches for lunch; cooking dinner. It was rather boring to have the same meals repeatedly everyday because I couldn’t spend extra money to buy other choices of food to satisfy myself.
At home, I couldn’t go online to communicate with my friends, check emails or play online games. I could only do some simple homework without searching information on internet. I couldn’t have any entertainment at all. I felt so bored to have nothing to do on the computer, it seemed to be garbage with no online connection. I also felt helpless because I couldn’t access the internet to search the resources I need for the work.
Life was so boring and miserable to live under poverty.
