I learned this word from a teacher in San Francisco.
I understood it as "If you live with Less things, the life is more precious".
My boyfriend is such a person.
He uses his TV for 16 years and his car for 15 years.
After when my computer has broken, he is using it only the part still usable.
Most of his T-shirts and socks have some holes, but he still wears them. Sometimes he sew them by himself.
He buy few things in his life. He uses all of his goods in a polite way.
I like his style, even though I like shopping. I'm trying to use things for long time, like him.
When we traveled around California, his father came to visit us.
He wanted to go to Las Vegas. But we didn't.
Because for us, it's not an attractive city. We don't like any gambles.
But he has already a ticket from Las Vegas to Japan, so we went there.
Actually, we never liked the city.
Because it's a city of casino. It's all for casino.
Hotels there are really cheap to stay. We had to pay only 40 dollars or so a night.
But it's for let us spend money on casino.
We had to walk through the casino floor many times.
Because the reception is in the end of casino.
And to access everywhere (restaurant, parking, or outside) from our rooms, we had to across the casino floor.
Further more the casino floor is very complicated. There is no floor map. The sign board is not good enough. So we walked a lot in casino.
Also, the outside is really hot. We cannot walk a lot outside of hotels. But the main street, the Strip, is huge so when we want to go to other hotels or shopping center, we have to walk a lot.
So whenever we arrived next hotel, we entered it to escape from the hot. But the floor is always the casino...
When we tried to buy a bottle of water, it costed 3 dollars a small bottle. But if we sit at slot machine, we can get any drinks at 1 dollar.
But we never sit there, because we don't like the way that they do.
In one of our hotels, we found a signboard written "Less is not more. More is more".
It's the advertisement of the buffet of the hotel.
We never tried it.
It's only the city that we didn't like in this trip. Maybe we have hard heads, we are strange.
But we couldn't get used to the city.
