If Singapore saw a significant month-on-month growth in GDP for September, and the UK saw a plunge in the pound vs. the US and Singapore dollars this week, I am afraid the culprit is yours truly.

With the dawning realisation that I had better send some money back home double quick-time in order to pay off my credit card bills  for what turned out to be an incredibly extravagant return home, and cursing the whims of the global economy which saw the pound drop from S$2.37 the last week I was back home to the S$2.25 it is now, I sent home what proved to be close to 12% of Singapore's average GDP per capita to pay off my bills and taxes for the next five months or so. 

Man, I hope bonus time comes soon.
