The Market is Going to Crash, 9 February 2009

I’m sick of Perak, let’s look at the bigger picture.

Hold on to your nerves a week on Monday. Apparently the stockmarket is going to crash on 9 February. Or so says somebody called Reinhardt who thinks the financial world is all tied up with a Catholic group of business leaders called Legatus.

Stunned by the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, the Dow Jones Industrial Average duly slumped by 504 points that day in its biggest points decline for seven years.

Ok, so it doesn’t have any impact on you. Same here. But let’s see whether this ‘modern-messiah’ is right or just a bad Monday morning joke.

On other note, Adriana will arrive tomorrow. I’m so excited, I couldn’t get any sleep (not that I really sleep anyway).

ps: Happy Thaipusam. Does “Thailand” comes from the celebration, answer; no.

pss: Adriana Batrisha is my baby niece (3 months old), who’d reply no matter what ground I talked about. And she likes sleeping on my lap.
