Apa the F***!!!

Malaysians queuing up for the latest 'gift' from their government.

Did you join the queues and fill up your tank ah? That's the question I get asked most often the past 24 hours. Well, the answer is "No" I didn't queue up to fill up my car's fuel tank. Instead, I stayed home and thought about the fuel price increase and how it will affect the Malaysian people. While thinking about this I also thought...Eh? What la! After 50 years under this government we have come to this? How can? Okay 50 years with the Barisan Nasional playing our guardians and managers of our resources here's some of what we got...............

The Petronas Twin Towers
Proton cars
Coffee Bean
The Eye on Malaysia ferris wheel
KLIA International Airport

..............and so the lists can go on and on and I am sure that Mahathir will glow listing his many "achievements" for Malaysia. But today I am thinking "Eh! Wait a minute! After 50 years of BN's progress and development I am now being told to...

Change my lifestyle to cope with rising costs. Change my lifestyle? If I change it anymore things won't be 'better than Ghana' anymore la. Like a blogger said this morning, "how to change? I don't take holidays. I don't drink. I don't party. I don't buy expensive clothes. I live a very moderate and thrifty lifestyle already." So how? The kerajaan flers want to tell us, "Here's how la......

Doesn't it make you want to kill somebody when you watch that video?

And another thing is this. Can somebody please tell me why our government always seems to choose this way of telling about price hikes. It's not like "Hey people we can't subsidise anymore la. Sorry ah. So please be prepared for a major increase in prices of (this and that) which will take place in 6 months from today." Clear, transparent. Understood. Right? Wrong. That's not the way.

"No there will be no increase. Well, maybe there will be la but we will inform you in plenty of time. We don't want to burden the people la."

"No definitely no increase."

"No there will definitely be an increase. Soon."

"Maybe there will be an increase. Later this year la"

And then.......BOOM!!! Surprise! Surprise! The increase is effective NOW! Caught ya! I can almost hear the laughter from the cabinet room!

So after 50 years of Barisan Nasional....

The Twin Towers are no longer the world's tallest building.
Proton cars are 2nd grade junk that nobody really wants.
Putrajaya is anything but jaya these days. And nobody wants to live there or work there. Costs too much to drive there with the un-subsidised fuel prices these days.
Cyberjaya is anything but jaya or cyber with residents still waiting for broadband connection for their homes which are supposedly located in the middle of the multi-media super corridor.
Of course, with the new rate of inflation not many people can afford to spend RM15 on a cup of stylish coffee anymore.
Ride the Eye on Malaysia? Nah. Been there done that and it wasn't that great. And by the way the ferris wheel looks a little rusty these days.
KLIA? Who the hell can afford to travel these days? And with petrol at RM2.704 per liter nobody can afford to go to the airport even if they had free Air Asia tickets to fly.

So, thank you Barisan Nasional. You sure did us all a big favor.




Wow, Patrick!! Since the last 50 years under that government, maybe the kind of lifestyle they want is for us to drive our car ala Flinstone style. No need fuel la....

Cool it Pat!
Your "niamah" is bold and big. You are real is everyone.
What can we all do....but to look after our poor stuffs..the low and muddle income group..sure to hell.

I can talk and give all sorts of comments....but my main my staffs......and I feel somewhat lucky...having a small company..thus problem is smaller than others.
Also feel to help all of smile.

reading all this make me feel leaving malaysia seems to be a right choice. At first my plan was to have some fun oversea to experience new lifestyle but now it look like i need to earn a fortune before moving back to my beloved country

Nice Country but Sad Government

I wonder how all the previous administrators are able to get thing under control where this new govt get so much of problem. From what i have read so far, this is what i tot (however this might be totally wrong)

Let see, new PM started the "clean blood process" by removing those who are more senior and aint listen to him. (i wonder is there any1 in the parliments is really clean). So all the senior guy have been offer an early retirement plan and fresh fler join in the rank. When the govt somehow provoke the citizen, PM try to get advise from ministry and due to various reasons or maybe even of due to the experiences, they come out with 3rd grade solution which make it worst.

I wonder after the UMNO election, will there be a new PM with his new Minister

aren't we getting back rm625.00 for each car per year !?

Anonymous said...

RM625 a year? Apa the f***? We should not have to suffer as Malaysia is blessed with natural resources such as OIL!!! What is going on with the gomen? Why not subsidise? The gomen is going crazy sh**! The profits from the sale of crude oil produced by Petronas should be going into each and everyone of us pockets! Look at all the OIL rich nations. Middle east, Brunei etc. What is the gomen thinking in comparing Malaysia with other countries that do not produce OIL! Hey AB! Go f*** yourself in front of the mirror until you understand the whole concept!

1. First of all, Petronas should be for the benefit of Malaysians! NOT GOMEN!
2. Every Malaysian out there! BOYCOTT PROTON and PERODUA! Who needs made in Malaysia cars! Without them, we don't have to suffer high taxes and pay 1/2 our salary in financing PROTON or PERODUA! Take the bus, the train, the motorbike, bicycle, and what not. DUMP all PROTONs and PERODUAs!
2. All Malaysians BOYCOTT SHELL and ESSO! When their profits fall, they will be pressured to reduce prices. Let's see the top bosses of such companies fall and they will surely do something to clean their A**!! And to follow, so will PETRONAS and ALL reduce their pump prices.
3. Surely there's inflation and all. But sadly being Malaysian and with Malaysian OIL doesn't help Malaysians! So, the choice in in your hands. You voted against BN! Now vote against PROTON, PERODUA, SHELL and ESSO!

What about people who do not own cars or bikes? They are the poorer people and they will be hit harder by the indirect results of the fuel hike.

Anonymous said...

My dear Pat,
Naik never mind. Why ? Because the government has to think about naik gaji. Yes. It is only fair for the millions of Malaysians who do not make it into the Forbes' Magazine. Naik gaji not only in public service. Also, private company bosses have to pity their workers and naik their gaji too. That way it will not be that bad.

To the fler who suggested "boycott Shell and Esso," do you even know how the petrol industry works ah?

Example: Esso refineries are at PD area. So all petrol stations, regardless of company, will buy from them. Petronas is at Terengganu so all stations there buy from them. It simply does not make sense from a business POV to transport petrol from a Petronas refinery in Terengganu all the way to Johore Bahru!

All the petrol companies buy petrol from each other la! Its a business thing! Not buying petrol from those so called "Jewish, American controlled" companies is not going to change a damned thing!

Don't you just 'love' the standard bullshit 'reasoning' given by the Gohmen bastards ah? "You should be thankful! Here we're only paying RM2.70 per liter. In UK, they are paying almost RM8 per liter!"

Nia meh cibettt.... People in UK earn in RM ah?! So liddat, can I say the people in UK very lucky because they only pay approx. RM70k for a brand new Corolla whereas we pay more than RM120k?

so what if car owners get RM625 back? Is it any good for non car owners. What will be the domino effect on prices of essentials? Have you considered that?
Plain simple..the bloody fucked-up govt of AAB is trying to "bribe" the country with "RM625 per car owner"

Greetings Patrick,
I'm already in the 50tish, been there done that, but I fear for the future of my son who is 14. I tell you why...By the time he is eligible to drive it would be a luxury with the relatively expensive cost of cars & petrol, don't talk about public transport coz it sucks. By then we can no longer rely on funding from Petronas as confirm by the chairman of Petronas that it will go bankrupt by 2018 & the country is in the pits. So, what to do lah? We are Australian PR and have considered going there to settle down in the future but I still treasure the lifestyles here, but not the idea of allowing my son to go for the dreadful 3 months national service. From your previous posting I know that you are not in favour of people migrating . Just to let off steam. From a Niamah fan.

The last time the petrol price hike, Najib mentioned that they would divert the subsidy to improve the public transport.

Today I may want to choose not to drive my car but thee is no alternative in public transport.
Tell me how to go to work if there is no efficient public transport?

Bas Pajak that does nto follow schedule is no a public transport.
The rakyat now know that the person who owns the bus lesen is actually making money by leasign out the bus. Where got system?

Maybe the Sabahans will get something from the government's 'savings' in oil subsidy. Afterall how does our PM get all the money to promise them development?

Malaysia Boleh!

"Change your lifestyle" - so the Gomen said.It sickens me to the core

1) Leaders should NOT go about in outriders in their oil guzzling Volvo SUVs and Black leather jacket outriders in big bikes. Apart from them looking like thugs cutting through traffic as if they had the better right of road - this lifestyle of yours is currently paid by the rakyat.

2) Leader MUST change their lifestyle and pay for their own electricity and utility bills. Their Putrajaya palatial homes utilise huge amount of electricity just to light up their garden - again all paid by the rakyat which 59% of Malaysian homes electricity bill is less than RM30 per month only. This is very sinful

2) No more Gulf Stream private jets ferrying them nor their family and wives shopping. Take commercial flights like every Malaysian. Even that - family tickets and expenses must be borne by leaders personally - rakyat should not be paying for their family expenses which are non official. Otherwise let every Malaysian claim for tax deduction for family entertainment too

The Rakyat is suffering now - say what you mean and mean what you say

Leaders must adjust their lifestyle before they have the gumptioness to ask the rakyat to change whats left of their "livelihood".

Remember the rakyat is and has been subsidising leaders' lifestyle - not vice-versa.

So " Put your money where your mouth is"

We know and we are watching

That nite, i thinking like u at my home.

This sudden increase in oil price is unavoidable for BN government, coz they are broke after overspending during the 12th general election and lost his 2/3 majority of supports.

As for their plot to raise the oil price, intention to cause panic among people and squeeed people's balls so that no one can afford to against them...If people hold mass rally, it is a good chance that it will turn to an ugly riot and BN government can then declare state of emergency and take over the entire nation. It's a good situation for BN and bodohlah, he will avoid the risk of being topple in the UMNO election this year end and prevent DSAI to become the PM. At the same time, he will use the emergency act to eleminate all the opposition force and blaming the riot was cause by oppositions.

Well, the more i think the more i get lost and deprived.

Help me to support my theory here. Pat.

From Bernama:

"[People] need to be thrifty in their life. If they have some spare land near their house, they can start planting vegetables. For those staying in high-rise like apartments, they can use the pots or the hydroponics method," he [FOMCA communications director Mohd Yusof Abdul Rahman] said.

Pots. Not just pots, but THE Pots. Or the hydroponics method.

Yes. I shall rear a chicken on the my balcony of my high-rise like apartment, to go with the yam I grow in my The Pots, and the single shrivelled tomato I have thanks to the hydroponics method.

And then I shall look forward to the ultimate lifestyle change: Death by malnutrition.

The Badawi regime's flip flop seems to look more like a circus act on a trampoline. No wonder people are calling Badawi & Co. a bunch of clowns.

Prior to the Elections, DPM Najib said that there will not be any petrol price increase. Then, the BN regime said that they were going to stop Singapore and Thai registered vehicles from enjoying our oil subsidies. Next, the sweet talking Domestic Trade Minister Shahrir says that the price increase will only come into effect in August. However, within hours Badawi says petrol prices will go up by midnight June 5.

Then, in another flip flop, they said that the Singaporeans and Thais will be allowed to pump petrol at our petrol stations.

This hike in petrol and diesel is going to have a domino effect on the country in all aspects. Already, Bank Negara is saying that the inflation rate is projected to up to 4.2% this year due to the fuel price increase. To make matters worse, electricity tariffs are also going up.

Some people say Badawi is committing political suicide but if you asked me, I'd say Badawi & Co. is employing a scorch earth policy before Pakatan Rakyat seizes the Federal Government. The only problem here is that we, the Rakyat become the victims of this policy!

Tiu naimah ka hai...that i want to tell this UMNO(BN)gov.The subsidies that they 'save'from these thru Petronas will be share among all the UMNO bustards and leave you and me HIGH and DRY.That why they call BN-(Banyak Nakal) gov.
Let see which planet we will send them to in next GE..NIAMAH


I heard from an insider that petrol will rise again to an all time high of RM3-4 per litre.Then papers published that TNB plans to increase it's rates.Gov givin rebate of sort of rm625 per year..devide that it's something like Rm1.71 per day.Mana cukup?LOL! Start the car and rev it a bit,that amount habis d.LOL!

All i can hear everywhere now is the current gov has just sealed their doom coz next election,it's all for the opposition.Let's hope the rakyat can tahan a bit till a better gov comes along,otherwise koyak la we all.

We thank Patrick for reporting the reality to the readers.

Unlike the BN-controlled mainstream media that claimed that the petrol price hike is a good decision to allow development for rakyat's benefit. NST clainmed that 'life goes on' - only true to the UMNOputera who had many 'side income' the cushion the impact of price hike.

We need more transparency on how the Petronas earnings are utilized.

How can Petronas account book be only accessible by the PM, when he has been repeatedly telling lies to the rakyat? He has tipu us on his wedding plan, the election date, and the price hike. Janji tak kota!

Maybe the PM has been sleeping for too long and he has forgotten teh nightmare he got om 8 March. The Rakyat should give him (and his 4th floor JKKK - Jean, Khairy, Kalimulah, Kamarudin) another political tsunami!

I hope Pah Lah do not visit Sarawak next. Why? he will then promise them goodies, paid from the misery of rakyat through price hike!.

If Anwar had our support when he challenged Mahathir, we wouldn't be in this hole right now. Look at the other SE Asian economies which were subjected to the 'undignified' prescriptions of the IMF and where they are today. When people ask where all the money has gone and if I were Anwar, I'd say 'don't say I didn't tell you so.'

When we are living in a high inflation period, although there may be raise in wages, I guess our current individual tax brackets may or may not be pushed onto another level due to the newly increased wage.

In other words, the tax system in Malaysia may need to be revised in order to reflect the higher cost of living in Malaysia.

Why so angry? Why get upset because of BN?

I am glad, very very glad with the fuel hike. BN shot themselves in the head this time, and opposition just need to sit and rest and enjoy the music.

In Cantonese, kwai ta kwai means devils fight amongst devils, so the devils always lose.

My dream is that the govt is made out of 3 or 4 parties. Anytime there is a bill proposed, every MP has the liberty and conscience to vote Aye or Naye. I don't even want PR to get the same power and temptations like Mahathir BN goons.

My advise is go overseas, earn some money there, if the Angmohs can come to work in Singapore and Vietnam for a living, are we so homely and stuck in Malaysia that we must survive here?

Will the cost of living in KL be one day as high as Tokyo? I don't know. But I do know that many Japanese have 2 jobs and high savings.

I guess Robert Kiyosaki is right after all. It's not the govt's job or the boss' job to make us rich, it's our job. That way, we always incorporate inflation rate into our lifestyle.

But it's the lower income group who can barely survive through the week, let alone the month, that we must be cautious with.

Isn't that how communism is born?
