Gosh! It has been a while since I updated on those 2 taboo subjects. But this time at least there is a positive result. At least for ur living in the US. As you all know, the gas price is gradually coming down. It was peaked at close to usd5/gallon. As of yesterday morning, Saturday Nov 1, it costs us 2.70/gallon although at noon when we were driving back fr the asian supermarket it went down to 2.66/gallon. Oh well, cant complaint too much. After suffering from a very high cost of gas the last 4-8 months, I am just so relieved that it is now back to what it was a year ago. Now, if only they bring down the price of goods as well. Everything went up when the gas price was up but when the price is down, nobody seems to want to bring down the price of goods.
Now, on the exchange rate, Ringgit Malaysia(RM) to USD it is not looking to good for Malaysian. Since Friday Oct 31, my exchange rate ticker on my notebook says that it is USD1 = RM3.553. It is of course good for Malaysian sending back money to home or if you are planning to go back and spend some moolah there. (Cath, Gert & Jannie, aren't you guys going back next year?)
