Don't worry. We are okay one.
But...but...but...the contract is signed what. We had a deal. No? Yes, but you didn't read the fine print. It is clearly stated that we (the company) reserve the right to terminate this contract at any time and without having to give any reasons. So in other words...be grateful for the 4 months we are paying you. Now fuck off. You're standing too close to my Mercedes Benz S500.
And so the 46,000 or so Ringgit that this Malaysian would have been able to bring back to Bolehland and perhaps contribute in some small way to that "strong reserve" mentioned below, disappears in smoke. Actually, there wasn't even smoke because they strongly discourage smoking in this place.
Meanwhile back in Bolehland the government is telling us that all is OKAY! We are managing much better than the other Asian economies. Our financial fundamentals are strong. We still have a lot of reserves. I believe this is what the sleepy fler actually said...
'We have some very strong economic fundamentals. And we have very strong reserves. Our trade surplus is still strong... Our savings are also very high...'
Strong economic fundamentals? Do those people even know what that means? Strong reserves? How much? Trade surplus strong? How long do you think that is going to last when the whole world goes into recession and nobody buys what we sell and we cannot afford what they sell? Savings high? Really ah? Even Adam will tell you that savings without sustainable income will fizzle out eventually. Does anybody there have a crystal ball that helps stoke this foolish confidence that we don't know about?
WE are okay they say. By the way, has anybody qualified who that WE is?
