I’m disappointed with how banks’ crises and economy affect the dollar rate these past few days. Even now, the value of the dollar is still high. I’ve been checking about it in the newspaper, wishing it’ll get lower than 7sek but it’s not showing any good sign at all. It used to be around 6 point something and it was a good value for me. The lower the rate, the lower the value in Swedish Kronor. Everything we purchase outside Sweden is paid in dollars, like this domain and our other domains and when I pay the internet bills of my beloved ones in Davao through the internet, I get billed in dollars.
But the good thing on top of this is that our bank is not affected by this economic plunge so we don’t have to worry about moving to another bank or just keeping our money under the bed. And mind you, we don’t have that much so don’t ever think crime by robbing us, lol! But I really wish for the dollar rate to get down a little bit especially now that the holiday season is coming near. If not, then I’d wish money would fall as snow instead, hahaa! Keep on wishing…
I’m going to wait for more days, perhaps until the end of this month to see some changes. Oh, I should have engaged myself in buying and selling of dollars, then, maybe I should have sold it high and earned some bucks. I know some who are doing this but I don’t know exactly the benefit of it. Buy and sell, sell and buy, until all a bye bye, lol! I’m not a business-minded person so I should not talk about this. What I’m concerned about is to spend, may it be in dollars or pesos or kronor.
I remember my grandmother had a sari-sari (variety of stuffs) store that sometimes she would asked me or my sisters to watch for. But everytime she asked me, I would wish nobody would come to buy cos I couldn’t remember the prices. It was a store so it would normally had customers and if I was the seller of the day and somebody would want to buy something, I’d shout “how much is this…?” Then my sisters or grandmother somewhere would shout back the price for me. It was always like that so I thought I’d never be a sales agent. Now this buy and sell dollar thing is out of the question, I suppose. I’d rather watch with how it fluctuates everyday. 🙂
