Poverty Exposed

A close friend of mine who is now attached to the government, informed me that the poverty income level in a state located in the northern of Malaysia to be around RM350 per month or less. I was taken aback. And here am I complaining about my bonus, increment etc to be spent on unnecessary things. She added further that surprisingly these people are still happy n very grateful.
I wonder what happened to simple life? Why are we stretching ourselves beyond our capacity and limit? Why do we mess around with our happiness for things we couldnt afford or rather for our wants than needs?
