Nobody believes me when I say it, but I'd actually be scared to win that much money. Your life would change completely - suddenly everyone will want your money. People will be coming out of the woodwork. Then you'd probably start to wonder who your true friends are, and perhaps resent people for latching on to you for suspicious reasons. And I honestly believe that easily bought items have less value than things you work hard and save up for. I really don't think I'd want all that money, although I can't honestly say i'd refuse it, either.

Ideally, I'd like to win the "Win $1,000 a week for life" lottery. Now there's having your cake and eating it, too!

100 million USD(about 3.7 RM)in saving account and take the interest every month to make donation to schools, NGOs, old folks home, orphanage, and etc.

100 million USD to set up a committee to organize programs to educate people in the third countries. (I think that's too much)

0.5 million USD to settle my mortgage loans such as housing loan and car instalment and my education loan.

1 million USD to set up a very small library in my neighbourhood.

0.5 million USD for my family, with condition they have to do some charity to get the fund to start with.

1 million USD for my brothers to start business in recycle.

0.5 million USD for my students, with condition they have to propose me good ideas on how to make a better world.

0.5 million USD for buying great books to enrich my dreamy little books corner in my house and thinking to open it for public three times per week.

10 million USD for my country's filmakers so that they can make really good and mind-provocative films to contribute their decent ideas to the world. (I know that's not much)

4 millions USD for me and my family to travel, with condition we have to do something beneficial after each travel such as writing articles, photography or simple survey about one country or people or culture or ELSE nobody can travel with empty mind!

Others:

2000USD for a standard upright piano
get a complete set of painting tools
get a standard SLR Camera
get a decent mountain bike
get 2 standard tennis racquets (so i can find a partner)
take up a course for world language - Esperanto
take up a course for TEFL

The rest will leave it to those who need it...

Obviously Ciku has not given this much thought! :)

I would buy a nice yacht, buy family and friends things they really, really want and would go and set up a couple of schools in places in need of better education facilities.
