Well, would be quite impossible to have this large sum of money at such a young age but just feel like fantasizing of possessing it. Someone asked this interesting question: “What would you do first?” The first term comes to my mind is “bank”. I will save it up and earn more interests in the bank before planning on how to use it.

Travelling means improving the bond between family members as joy often revolve around trips. The money can be used to escape from reality temporary, jump into the paradise without any concern on work and school. Sometimes, we need to worry about the expenses spend during travel on food, play and transport. However, I guess this burden of worrying becomes unnecessary.
