My wish of owning a car next year would have to be mothballed until the world economic crisis is over. With such gloomy news on the world economy, the hubs just isn’t bold enough to make another big commitment. Every morning as I flip through the newspapers during breakfast, every page on the business section of the newspapers is on recession, retrenchment, unemployment, financial bail-out, countries requiring financial assistance, large banks and corporations on the verge of collapse, etc. Even if the hubs suggests to buy another car, I would stop him. Though the government had recently reduced the prices of petrol, it’s really hard to predict if they would increase it again. Everything is just so unpredictable and uncertain now. It’s best that we keep our cash in the bank. Errmmm, I think it’s not even safe to keep our money in the bank for the bank might just collapse one of these days….. knock on wood!
Anyway the hubs and I would have to think of a plan on how to bring Alycia to and from school when she enters Primary One in a year’s time. It’s difficult to rely on the hubs’ car as he is always on the go or at his client’s place. I guess I will have to find someone whom I can trust and pay him/her a car allowance to chauffeur Alycia to school. That’s still way economical than buying and maintaining a car.
