Malaysian traffic-offenders queuing for their 50% discount at Ikano Pos Malaysia office. Some had been there since 8am. Got discount, some more no need to work. Life is good in Bolehland!
1. There are apparently 17 million Malaysian motorists who have not settled their overdue traffic summonses!!! And of course we all know about the government's efforts in getting these flers to pay up which are quite laughable. These traffic offenders get discounts if they settle their summonses!!! I don't remember when the rules changed but it used to be that when you commit an offence, when you do something bad you get PUNISHED! These days you get a slap on the wrist and a discount! Will the day come when a rapist would get a free supply of condoms if he owns up?
Bapa Malaysia - the musical? Naaah!
2. Somebody out there must have something against Tunku Abdul Rahman, our first Prime Minister and Bapa Malaysia. They've made a musical about Ismail. A musical about Mahathir and now I read that there is going to be a movie about Razak and Ismail together! It's supposedly about the two gents's efforts in bringing peace and stability to the country after the May 13, 1969 racial conflict. For all he's done the poor Tunku must be feeling a little left out in his grave. But of course, I am not saying he'd be happy with Tunku, The Musical either.
Why now? Just coincidence only ma. Cannot ah? Lei chooi ah?
(ask your Cantonese-speaking friends)
3. And of course we all know about the song-and-dance whenever there are elections. The government flers travel to the election areas and start dishing out money and other 'presents' like it was Christmas come early. Ok, or Hari Raya or Deepavali in case there are sensitive people around. I read in the papers today that the BN government has announced a RM9.25million allocation to upgrade a water treatment plant in Kerdau. That the by-elections just happen to be in Kerdau too is just coincidental. Right? We don't believe crap like that but we hear it so often that I, for one am becoming quite de-sensitised to it.But it is still ultra-irritating and even infuriating to hear more crap from the Deputy Minister of Women, Family and Community Development, Heng Seai Kie. She said that efforts (by the government) to help the needy during elections must not be politicised! "(Do) we haev to stop giving out aid although we know there are people in election areas who need help, just because others may say it is 'election candy'?" So, YB you mean to say that the poor people in the area were not poor and didn't need help before the by-elections were announced? How come you didn't announce millions of Ringgit of grants, allocations and upgrades before this? Oh just coincidence issit? Give us a fucking break la, YB. We may have been apathetic, lazy bums before but we're not stupid.
