Only if

Only if

The older generation had dreams and of course regrets. A friend of mine related this: Father: Only if your agong and ama had the money, I would have further my education and won’t be earn only measly $7000 to $8000. Friend: Dad, if agong and ama had the money, you would probably be bumming around doing nothing productive instead of like now earning $7000 to $8000 and still being sought after.
