Lay Youi loves her piggy bank

Do you remember your piggy bank sitting on your table and how you couldn’t help breaking it just to buy a toy? If you do, your childhood was awesome. A number of teenagers still own a piggy bank due to its cute appearance and use it for saving as well as decoration.

“I have been using piggy banks for more than two years,” says Lay Youi, a year four student at the University of Health Science, adding “this is my second one”, holding her current yellow plastic piggy bank.

Though it may seem childish to have a piggy bank at this age, Youi told LIFT she prefers piggy banks because of the inspiration it gives her.

“Some people may say I am too old to use it,” says Youi, “but it is because they have not found something invisible in it – not money, but hopes, inspiration and a sense of bringing you back to childhood.”

“I use it for saving little bits of money left over from daily expenses to buy a desired item,” she continued.

When asked how much her piggy bank holds, Youi says around one hundred dollars, adding “People get very happy and exited when they find some money in their jeans pocket that has been there for years, but what if they found more than that in a piggy bank when they really need money?”
