It's the weekend again and a glorious day outside, one that is a far cry from the gloominess of the past few days. One that makes you aware of the beauty of the greenery outside, the birds fluttering about among the trees, fluffy clouds in the sky. Yes, one that makes you happy to be alive!
There are lots of places I'd like to visit on a day like this though I'd need to be armed with an umbrella, a pair of good walking shoes and yes, swathed in sunblock.
If one were to go downtown these days, especially in the Chinatown area, one would notice a difference in human traffic. With job-cuts resulting in contractors, mainly foreigners, being sent home, human traffic congestion has been noticeably reduced. Many businesses have significantly reduced production, many have even seized operation. Employees most affected are those holding blue-collar jobs. I wonder if investment banker jobs are similarly affected. Maybe not as banks here are still going strong. And that is a good sign. Amen to that!
