A New Year’s Scare

31st December 2007. I received text messages. I received emails. I received phone calls. I received private messages on forums. All telling me to fill up my car’s tank with petrol because the price will be raised by 40 sen to RM2.32 per litre at the stroke of midnight. I am already feeling the pinch from rising cost of living and this is going to be yet another burden. I thought I would have to learn how to trade stocks to earn some pocket money since a day job can only help me scrap through life.

On my way back from work, I stopped by a petrol kiosk near my house and there was a long queue of cars waiting to fill up their tanks. Looks like the whole Malaysia got the price increase message. I took my turn after queuing up for about 20 minutes. Filled my tank to the brim for a total of 30 litres. If the price of petrol did increase, this would have translated into RM12.00 savings. 😉

Happy New Year

I woke up this morning to 2008 to be told that it’s all a rumour. I’m feeling so gullible right now. I hope you are not one of those as gullible as me. 😀 To all my readers, Happy 2008. May the new year bring bountiful joys, prosperity and health. Happy New Year!!! 🙂
