Don't mind me...

Ooooo...just read online (I can only go online during the day cos by night-time, I'm like a zombie) that our petrol prices have reduced (yet again). But but..it doesn't make much of a difference to me cos firstly, I don't travel far. In fact, on some days, I don't travel at all. Am I so arrogant that the little savings counts to nothing? No, it's not that. If you knew how much I use in a week or a month for that matter, you'd realise that it's not the petrol that saves me money but prices of tangible things.

Ever since the petrol prices sky-rocketed recently, so has my bowl of noddle at a nearby kopitiam. What used to costs RM3.50, now it's RM4.00. Worst is, even if the petrol prices were and will be reduced in the last month or so, the cost of my bowl of noodle won't! So will the new transportation charges the newspaper-man levied on my FIL last month (they still prefer the old fashion way of reading the newspaper. Frankly, so do I).

I just find it so redundant with the reduction now. It's not as if I can now suddenly afford those fancy Sector watches with the savings.

To quote my MIL on her conversation with the market lady:

"When you increase your price, you say it's petrol. Now, petrol price drop, you pretend to be dumb and ignorant la".

P.S : Oh yes, don't mess with MIL when she's at the market ok...

P.S.S : Notice there are no photos today? I'm just not up to it; just too lazy to switch the other computer on and upload bla bla bla...long story. Besides, my hormones has gone a little haywire lately -- hence, the tone of this post. So, don't mind me...while I let some of it off...
