Who is not affected of this year’s global economic plunge? I am wondering if the richest man on earth is not having a problem about saving a penny for a lifetime. Somehow I feel a sigh of relief that Y2009 is about to end and see what’s in store for us in the coming year in terms of economy. Yet, despite of the crisis we can’t just let go of holidays without spending. How much and how little we spend doesn’t matter for as long as we are happy and the people we celebrate the holidays with are happy too.
Finally, we had our last day of work this morning. I could understand that because of this economic plunge, we had to celebrate it in our home office building which we don’t normally do. We used to commence and conclude our work at Ullevi arena and restaurants. But this time it’s different. I must have felt a sense of pampering everytime we gather and enjoy delectable coffee time and lunch. Somehow, I missed that today. Instead, we had fusilli salad, sliced ham and bread. Huhuu! Where is the real Christmas dinner table and smorgasbord (smörgåsbord)?
But of course this is better than nothing. It’s just not my kind of meals for lunch especially that I don’t like pasta much. I can eat it when I am starving, maybe. Though I managed to eat a little portion today and that was all. See how this economic has affected my job. I wonder what’s next if it never ends; decrease in salary or no salary increase. I think I’d prefer the latter.
