But like any normal day, the first thing I did on waking up was to read the news.
And.....I felt much better right away. Instead of the usual political crap, the government is actually doing something to help ease the burden of the public. Petrol prices will be reduced by 15 cents, and hypermarket chains like Tesco, Carrefour, Giant and Mydin will reduce prices of canned and fresh food, including instant noodles by as early as next week.
This is good news indeed. I had braced myself for more price increases, but instead, prices are heading south.
However, that said, looking at the percentage of the price reduction (15% - 30%), prices of those goods will just be back to what they were 6 months ago. We will not be seeing prices of last year.
Oh well, at least it's better than prices continually sprillaling up through the roof.
Yay! Now I can afford to buy more books at the MPH Warehouse Sale later today. But first, I have to go back to bed as the medicine I took just now is making me drowsy again. *nodding off*
