Friday Again....and Long Holiday!!!!...... And Selamat Hari Raya!!!!!!

Well, guess what, tomorrow is Friday and it means weekends is coming. Friday is usually the most relaxing day in the office, while at the same time, it can be tension enough. Why I would feel tension on this day? It is because I will be rushing to go back to Ipoh and sometimes it happened that when I was driving, they will be issues back in the working place. Nevertheless, I also enjoy working on Friday, coupled with the long break and weekends just around the corner. But tomorrow Friday will be a little bit different, because there will be two public holidays on next Monday and Tuesday. With this long break, hopefully I will be re-charged.

One more note though, the long break is because of Hari Raya, a celebration by the Muslims. So, here I would like to wish all the muslims who will be celebrating this Hari Raya - "Selamat Hari Raya!!!"

My Car Got Scratch....ARRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Yesterday when I was about to take my bag from my car, I was soooooo angry to see a long scratch from the front door till the rear light. Arrrgggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh...........The worst thing is this incident happen at the car park of my work place. I will need for either repaint the whole car, or wax or maybe polish on Monday so that the scratch is not so obvious. Anyway, it still ruin my mood.

The good thing is there are CCTVs around the car park in which one or two of it might have recorded the incident, and if we happen to catch the culprit, most likely I will ask for him or her to repay should I take my car for repainting.

Come on people, we have already been living in the age of civilization, why do we have to act so......"uncivilized". Vandalism is something that I cannot tolerate, not because this round it happens to my car, but because it will create a lot of hardship for others.

Will post the photo on Monday or Tuesday night to show the severity of the scratch.

Economic crisis turning point??

If any of you are complaining and cursing about the current economy slump, then you need to understand that ECONOMIC CRISIS NEVER HAPPEN OVERnight. In fact, they are the result of years and even decades of global economic change, policy errors as well as investor misjudgment and miscalculation.

But there always will have those moments such as those in the past, the Wall Street crash of 1929, the fall of Thai baht in 1997 and recently when Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy and bankers around the world ask that one question that should also be a question to each and every single one of us.

"If a bank as well known as Lehman can fail, who is safe?" and that's it: we're all heading into recession.

And even the awakened dragon, China suffered and shuddered with fears of mass unrest as millions of workers were tossed from jobs at shuttered export factories.
Predictions about the worst ever recession has been up but one year after the Lehman bankruptcy, as policymakers and pundits gather to take stock, more of the economists are busily upping forecast for U.S growth.

And of course, China after a brief pause has returned to its caffeinated growth path, lifting together most of the Asians with it. Many are now saying that the "worst case scenario of a complete economic and financial meltdown has clearly been avoided".

The more daring ones are saying that "We're out of recession globally"

However, even if recovery is on the track, we must acknowledge that what happened change the situation existed before. Just as the world after the Great Recession won't be the world that existed before, this downturn has a fundamental impact on the globe's economic future.

In fact, the role of the United States have probably been altered. For so long, the Americans have played the primary driver of global growth but with the lesson learned, countries like Taiwan which suffered the most as she is the export-oriented economy, the government is now promoting new domestically focused industries like tourism.

Taiwan president, Ma Ying-jeou told TIME, "We were hard-hit by the shrinkage of the export market in the US. So one lesson we learned is we should diversify our export markets."

Well, if that's anything for sure is that we may have avoided the worst recession ever but we're still far from where we were before the crisis. The U.S has lost 6.7 million payroll jobs since December'll take a long, long time to make up all the economy activity that was lost during the recession.
