Gloom and Doom – Recession 2?

I just arrived this morning from Rome via Moscow and I still lack sleep.  Two weeks ago, my dad was insisting I shouldn’t push through with my trip and just save my money.  However, I turned the blind eye and went through with it when I got my visa.  The trip was educational, enlightening and an eye-opener.  It’s true that you learn more of the world when you travel.

When I logged on to my PC this morning, my friend who’s a business journalist in the Philippines was also online.  So, I asked her what advice can she give me during this time of crisis?  She said, save save save!  Hold on to your cash.  It seems like the forecast in the near future is gloomy.  Prices are going up but our salary can’t match its pace.

If I want to achieve my goal in 3 years time, I better start to plan how to do it.  If I need to learn a hobby and make money out of it, I probably should do so.  But.. does our life really revolve around money?  Shouldn’t we trust in God to provide for our needs?  I’d probably need to contemplate some more.  Right now, I can’t wait for the clock to hit 6pm and go home.
