With the current financial meltdown, I see only bleak things happening that makes us think twice. Thousands lost their jobs. Many came back from overseas jobless as they also lost their job in countries where they worked. The forecasts of expert concerning this portray the worst to come. It is so evident that it makes the atmosphere foreboding to all. Maybe, just maybe, the happy days are over. The day is done and night time has come.

We need to make all possible remedy to brace ourselves. We must cut back on our needless expenses. Spend only what is necessary. No more binge eating, binge buying and binge travels because it unnecessarily drains what money we have. We need to practically scrimp even with food because there are just too many bills to pay that eat away at our earnings, like electricity, water, credit cards, LPG, food and travel expenses.

How about the government how does it go on adapting to our situation? I hope they are making the best in curbing impulsive junkets and needless expenses. Those who are inclined to pocket money as if it was their own income should think twice. We cannot afford to sink our ship by digging more holes.

We need to unite this time and save ourselves. I remember a verse in the Bible that says in effect like this 'Those who will try to save his own life will lose it, but those who will lose it will save it instead.' Interesting verse. Maybe it means that those who are selfish and try to save his own skin will only eventually end up losing his own life in the process. What could its meaning except the obvious?

What I really want to say is that we must be united and help our ailing country instead of undermining it through corruption. We only have to decide to do what is right before it is too late.
