Recession or what jek?

I went to Parkson Members Day sale and for the first time ever, I see the SKII promoters standing there beat mosquitoes or ta wu yeng (beat flies).
Normally, all the aunties will be fighting like SKII is giving away freebies and the queue will be darn long. But the whole place is empty.
Few nights ago, we stopped by our regular shop in Gurney Plaza and the lengjai told us this year is very bad. No crowds and whatever few people there are, all have no buying power.
So, I also follow and cut costs. Instead of SKII, now, I patronise Clinique. For half the price, I get twice the stuffs. Must cut cost also because now my blog income is only 1/3 of what I used to earn. Barely can touch RM6K liao. Sad….no more lansi 12kmom.
In general, the only buzz around is the hypermarket and supermarket where people buy the cheap-cheap longan, lychee, mushroom and canned foods. Other places? All quiet-quiet. It is like recession time back in the early 90s. I tell you, that year many people never buy new clothes, only new underwears.
And to all those who are going on long holidays and driving home/riding buses etc, Gong Xi Fa Cai in advance. And berhati-hati di jalanraya. Please go and sign the petition for better safety on the road. Buscrashnomore has set up a petitiononline and I hope you peeps will support it.
