Today isn't such a good day. The news about Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and the worry for AIG....I am a policy holder of AIG!! I hold several insurance policies, though my premiums are peanuts! Almost as suddenly as they rose, oil prices have been falling. Yet, we are not totally rejoicing.
Of course, they are saying Singapore is safe for now etc etc. But you never know. Big banks and companies collapse. I think probably it's better to put my money beneath my pillow now. It's safer. Though it's not a lot, at least I know my few grand will still be there. It feels like a modern doomsday. Instead of having scenes from Armageddon or Independence Day, I picture scenes of banks going bankrupt overnight, insurance companies closing, economy goes nowhere except down, people have nothing to fall back on and are pessimistic. Oh, what a scary scene!
It hasn't been making me feel comfortable all day. So I knew, I had to do something which could calm my nerves. Tonight's dinner of "Chicken chop with pepper sauce - served with Miso rice and mashed potatoes" was not too bad, considering it was a first attempt. The mashed potatoes was a cheat, I used instant mix, but the chicken was honestly rather tasty.
But I had to do something else, so I went to search for a baking recipe which I knew would work, and started my therapy session... It turned out very well and now my nerves are calmed and ready for bed. The pictures can only be posted on 1 Oct, stay tuned!
