hello is undefined means that browser is not able to find that hello..
To Understand,change your code with the following line for demonstration only


<script type="text/javascript">

var hello = {
    spend =function() {
          alert("This is the sample only");
     }
}


hello.spend();

</script>

Hope this will fix up your problem.

it is quite harmless, you can make it more harmless by doing it

var hello = {
    spend =function() {}
};
