Whee! USD strengthening

I went to cash out my Google Adsense income for July 2008. Normally, I use Western Union and cash through CIMB where I have an account.

I am so, so happy that US dollar is gaining strength and I get a better rate this month. For every USD1, I get RM3.359. With this exchange, I easily earn RM200 more than I expected. Whoopee!

Extra RM200 just because of better exchange rate.

I went to issue a bank draft in Indian Rupees. I need to pay Rs2,000 for a course in Theology from India. Initially, when I received the quoted amount, I was so worried that I couldn’t afford it. The course in Theology comes in several units and Rs2,000 is the cost for one unit. I thought, OMGAWWWDDD!!! How to afford so much money.

But hehehe, I found out that Rs2,000 is just about RM166 only. So yeah, I am studying the ‘science of God’ (Theo = God, logy = science) on a distance learning course. And the best thing is this RM166 comes free because I am getting a better exchange rate.

Now, I cannot wait for payday for the rest of the ads income. I hope the exchange rate stays or go up to RM3.40 per USD1 when I cash out the rest of my income which normally comes in after the 1st of the month.

    shall we feeling happy or feeling sad when USD value increase? If drop, it seems like our MYR so good rating, if increase, it seems like our MYR so useless, haha~

    for the good of the country we need a stronger ringgit, it may be good for bloggers like you and me but how many bloggers are there in Malaysia? let also ‘probloggers’

    Let us hope the ringgit strengthen against the USD, for the good of the country.

    that huge. I believe many people like if they can earn well after we exchange dollar to ringgit. Yup. If ringgit strengthening. We earn less. But if US go well, we will earn big. :D

    Ps: Which want you prefer?

    calvin – LOL, you go tell it to Pak Lah lah! This blog is about making money so I do not have to worry about our country’s economy over here.

    choonie/bb community – Who knows, we may need to peg the ringgit again?

    Lilian, what calvin and you both are talking is funny, I admit if RM stronger of course is better but for those bloggers earns from Adsense or any other method in USD, hoping for higher exchange rate :P This is just the nature, don’t you just love more money ? Hehe… oh ya, Lilian, hopefully when I planning to take out my Adsense money in Nov, the exchange rate is not lower but at least 3.35 and higher ? :P

    Just out of curiosity, why don’t you use paypal for your adsense payments?

    dragon blogger. I don’t think we can accept adsense payment by paypal. Its impossible right?

    Is that because you are located outside of the United States? When I setup my Adsense account, it linked directly to my paypal account.
