Gas Price and Ringgit Malaysia Update

As of Sunday night, the gas price in our area has officially dropped to below 2/gallon. 1.999/gallon to be exact. It is just so unbelievable yet so very true. The last time gas price was below 2/gallon was like in early 2005. Although we in SoCal have only started to get these below2/gallon gas price, I know for a fact that Cath in Virginia has been enjoying it for a while now. :P With the gas price going down fast, we only fill up our car $20/week which will give us slightly less than 3/4 tank and would last us for up to 9days if we stay local that is.

Ringgit Malaysia on the other hand is now at RM3.622 to USD1. That's 10cent down since the last time I made an update which was only a few weeks ago. I heard that it will be around RM3.80 for every dollar by year end. Who knows? We will just have to wait and see.


On another note, it is Thanksgiving here in the US on Thursday and Friday will be the famous shopping day of the year, Black Friday. Michael has already applied for an extra day off for Friday. We have yet to decide what we are going to do for Thanksgiving but I do plan to go visit the malls and factory outlets on Black Friday. I need to get a new pair of sneakers to replace my 5year old that I have been using. I have never gone this long with any sneakers before. I guess when you are a fulltime housewife and not a member of any gym club, the need to own different kind of sneakers for different kind of activities just disappeared.

I belum pernah lagi venture out to the mall on Black friday. So good luck braving the crazy crowd. The TV we wanted was on sale, but will be $50 less on Friday. Hubby decided to go get it last weekend, tak kuasa nak get in line (at Fry's). The associate told us if we come back with our receipt on Friday, they'll credit us for the difference. Sweet - I shall brave the crowd for $50!
