I received quite a few comments on the last post, Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush. Good comments too. I thought that I'd post them up as a blog so that we can share with all the visitors to Tokkok. If some of it don't make sense you'll have to go read the original comments la. Sorry ah.
blinka.li, what is "people 5mins chicken poo poo heat also u so kek sim". I don't get the connection la.
Great idea, egghead. How wonderful if all work can be done from home. Using a national high speed fibre optic network. On that thought, wasn't there some project some years ago to lay fibre optics throughout the country? What happened to that ah? No subsidies issit? Another Malaysian pipe dream?
You're right, Cronoz. With all that's happening the old Kamikaze Mini busses don't seem such a bad alternative now.
Ya, KK whenever these things happen the politicians instead of sympathising with the poor long suffering raayat and informing them of what is being done to alleviate their problems, they start spewing 'advice'. And the thing that always pisses me off is the tone of language they choose to use. Patronising us like little children while they drive about in their fuel guzzling Mercedes Benz's and BMW's. And it's 4.4 billion they save. Not 1 billion.
Eh, anonymous, I think you should keep your 1982 Proton la. Gen-2 may bring you more problems. LOL. And if you said what you wrote to our DPM or any other menteri they will quickly tell you that a minister's pay is not that much and that they too suffer like every other member of the Malaysian raayat. Yeah, right.
F**K the DPM? Oh dear, wani, wani, wani. What language! LOL. But I am sure you'd have to stand in line for that though:-)
Good point, nimble. That's one thing that I can never understand. Why former public services that have been privatised and which report record profits year afer year need to increase rates? If they were so profitable in the first place why were they privatised out of public hands? Well...that sentence sort of explains itself doesn't it? What is the point of privatising something that's not profitable?
fireangel, your equation sent a chill up my spine. MAS = public transportation. Is it just coincidence that MAS needs RM4 billion to get out of the shit house? Oh my gawd!!!
After all is said and done, it is the ordinary, totally screwed Malaysian who is to blame for all that's happening to him. Years of apathy have given rise to a series of administrations that know just how easy it is to pull the wool over his eyes. Even now, most of us are just moaning and groaning for a while before we go back to our 'cari makan' attitude ..."Hiyah! Can make money enough lor. Waffor want to trouble leh?"
Until the next fuel/power rate increase la. Then we talk somemore.
Okay lah, I got to go cari makan now. Eh! You pay the teh tarik ok? By the way, the teh tarik smelt like shit la. Ha? Ammonia only issit? Never mind la. You pay ah.
