Many MNC’s have been affected by the current global economic crisis. What have you done on your part to cope with the current situation? Many are still ignorant towards what is happening and some are starting to feel the pinch. I have been having days off due to comp shutting down for cost reduction purposes. So far it has not affected my personal wealth significantly but if the situation does not improve, it will slowly eat into my savings. There’s only 2 ways to ride out this wave. Either earn more or spend less.
Here are a few tips on reducing your expenses. I am not talking about making major sacrifices. Just lil things that we could do to reduce our expenditure. These are the things that I pledge to do for the next few months just to save some bucks for the rainy season.
#1. Spending less on phone calls.
#2. Planning ahead for holidays.
- We all deserve a get-a-way every once in a while. Making careful planning ahead always helps reduce cost and it’s also less stressful. You get cheaper rates when booking ahead. And when everything goes according to plan, all you have to do is chill and enjoy the vacation.
#3. Buy only what’s necessary.
#4. Eating in more frequently.
- Home cooked food is healthier and yummier anyway!
#5. Look at price tags before heading to the cashier.
- It pays to be a lil more observant. Seriously!
It’s these lil things that we could cut down to keep our finances in check!
Okay.. Vday is getting really really close as the days goes by. To make date planning a lil easier here’s a list of movies which you could catch for Valentine ’s Day!
New in Town
Synopsis: Lucy Hill (Renee Zellweger) is an ambitious, up and coming executive living in
Look for a Star
If you’re looking for a romantic movie, this is it! Boy meets gal, fell deeply in love at first sight. Lotsa lovey dovey acts in it. It feels like high school all over again. Andy lau is so handsome and manly. Shu Qi is really pretty and adorable in this show I’m not a big fan of shu qi but she really did a good job in this movie. Go watch it with your special someone and I guarantee sparks will start flying all over. =)
Pink Panther 2
Synopsis: When legendary treasures from around the world are stolen - including the priceless Pink Panther Diamond! - Chief Inspector Dreyfus (John Cleese) is forced to assign the bumbling French police detective, Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin) to a team of international detectives and experts charged with catching the thief and retrieving the stolen artifacts.
Synopsis: Jamal Malik, an 18 year-old orphan from slums of Mumbai, is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on
Synopsis: The film begins in 1928 LA and tells the true story of a woman who recognizes that the boy returned after her son's disappearance is an impostor. After confronting the city authorities, she is vilified as an unfit mother and branded delusional. The events were related to the Wineville Chicken coop murders, a kidnapping and murder case that was uncovered in 1928. Changeling explores themes such as disempowerment of women and corruption in political hierarchies.
I don’t know how this movie is gonna turn out. Just the fact that the main character is getting younger instead of aging is just plain weird. But since brad pitt is in it. I sure hope it’s gonna be good.
Synopsis: "I was born under unusual circumstances." And so begins "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," adapted from the story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: A man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. We follow his story set in

The 9th day of Chinese New Year is a big night to the Chinese community especially the Hokkiens. Sugarcane is an essential item as offerings to the Jade Emperor. According to the ancient tradition, hundreds of years ago, people of the Hokkien province in
During the cosmic battle between the Jade Emperor and the demonic forces, the Hokkien hid in the sugarcane plantations. Following the victory over the demons and their liberation, the Hokkien people came out to celebrate the Chinese New Year for the first time in years. They wanted to give thanks to the Jade Emperor and also honour him on his birthday on the ninth day of the lunar new year but didn’t have anything to worship with. So, they used sugarcanes as their offering to the Jade Emperor. From that first worship ceremony, they continued with the tradition of using sugarcanes to thank the Jade Emperor on the eighth night of the lunar New Year

I love Chinese New Year coz it’s the bestest time to meet up and catch up with friends who are based overseas. And it’s even greater when it’s with friends that you haven’t met for ages!
