With the recent inflation rise, I noticed newspapers have been covering the lives of the people that are badly affected by the economic inflation. And also read some news where the government or the leader, Pak Lah, has been exhorting the rakyat (citizens) to be thrifty and to change our lifestyle.
I was discussing with my friends the other day about our current lifestyle and inflation. I was thinking out loud if spending RM50 a week is considered luxury and needed to be reduced and needed a change to my lifestyle... I seriously don't know what else there is to cut back on my lifestyle. RM 50 a week is too much, you think? I don't spend on luxuries like premium coffe, premium cakes, clothes, accessories, etc. I don't. My colleagues love to say "Wah ... you always drink San Francisco coffee" while batting their eyelash at me. I really dislike that. That's because there is a word called FREE. You could always get this kind of premium things for free. All you need is to be more alert and keen on finding more information. And there is nothing wrong being a freeloader. I am. I'm not sure why colleagues once told me off "I'm not interested and I don't want to know what's free and what not." If you are kiasu enough (scared not to lose) and not afraid to get free items, you would have tasted a lot of expensive things for free!!
Oh well, enough of my personal life. I was reading Marina Mahathir's article this morning related to the recent rise in things and how much the government should walking the talk. She listed 15 things for the government to start off. I totally agree with her list in her article entitled You walk the talk first. She has a personal blog too, you could visit RantingsbyMM
Have fun stabbing someone but not me. If I die, who else is going to brighten up your day?
50 bucks a week is not quite impossible with the current inflation unless we were to eat only bread and drink plain water for every meal of the day.

All this economic stuff is troubling me
I thought the US was one of the few countries having problems, but hearing this makes me wonder. I think it's because of the oil...EVERYTHING runs on oil, it's the most expedient resource we have at our disposal and it's about to run out. There's going to be chaos in the near future.
I try to be very thrifty. I only but what I need, and if there's a shortcut (like make it myself) I will.
