If I need it, I will find the money to buy it.

The biggest problem now is with people saying that things are getting bad and will get worse.

That thinking is just making it all get even more worse.

Talk positive and encourage others to do so.

Negative talk generates negative thinking and trends.

Inspire us away from what can make things go down further. :thumbsup:

Yes. I just decided not to upgrade from a Q6600 to an i7 920 system. Even though the Graphics and Video rendering gain is about 30%. Sigh..

Cannot! cannot cut back oh..

Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong has advised people to continue spending, to keep the economy growing and avoid the downturn getting worse. (See here) Many people do not agree with this call. They are afraid of losing their jobs. They prefer to save more, in case the need they money in the future. The reduced domestic spending is now being felt in many sectors of the economy.

blah blah blah...

This is such classic Singapore! The kiasi talking with the kiasu!!!
The Kiasi says, "Please spend lah, if not our economy die."
The Kiasu replies, "Cannot lah, later we no job, then no money to survive how?!? We better save."

And the capitalist shark makes a swim by:
u think he will pass me his wallet so i can spend?
Please share with me too! :lovegrin:
