(Hmmm...maybe that wasn't such a good idea. What to do ah?)
I like Pak Lah. He is a Prime Minister with an honest face. Okay, so there are people who believe that he's done shit since he took over from the other fler but that's a subject for other bloggers.
This morning I heard on the 9 o'clock news over Traxx FM (RTM's ridiculously named English language radio station) that Pak Lah had announced last night in Bukit Mertajam that he'd allocated RM20million to redevelope his alma mater, the Bukit Mertajam High School. The P.M. also announced also announced an additional RM3.5 million for the restoration work for the Block C of the Bukit Mertajam High School. What the ^*&$#@@#!!!
RM23.5million to redevelope (what does that mean anyway) a school? And the money is going to come out of the 9th Malaysia Plan funds. To say the least this is untimely isn't it? All that money for one school while there are hundreds which don't even have electricity? All that money for one school while the people of Johor are still drying out their lives?
Okay, those of you who mourn the demolision of Bok House in Kuala Lumpur recently read this and cry some more..........
"We have decided the school heritage should be retained. At least Block C should be restored with the original look just like before. Therefore, the government has allocated RM3.5 million for the restoration work so that it will look good like so many years ago," he said in his speech at the Bukit Mertajam High School Reunion Dinner.
Like I said, I like Pak Lah. But man! His timing could improve some.
