It's my party and I can pay if I want to......

It's my party...or rather my daughter's party...

I guess we'd all been expecting it but The ShangriLa Hotel has issued a statement that the Prime Minister himself and not the Prime Minister's Department settled the bill for his (the PM's) daughter's engagement party. As usual most of us Malaysians seem to have missed the trees for the forest leh.

And so Najib paid out of his own pocket to settle the bill for his daughter's engagement party. The bill came up to a total of RM409,767! So, okay being prime minister of Malaysia I suppose Najib draws a comfortable salary. But what I would like to know is this. Does a PM's salary allow him to splurge RM400+++thousands on an engagement party? How much are we actually paying our politicians?

I suppose we won't have to wait long before some statement is issued about how the PM and his wife saved their whole lives to prepare for happy occasions like these. Or that the couple's daughter is a very successful entrepreneur who has made millions cos she is so talented in business and therefore can afford expensive celebration parties etc. etc. etc.

Don't stories like these make you really want to throw up? Excuse me, I feel my lunch coming up....


p/s Read this related story of better times and a better man......

You seemed to ba able to find fault in any statement he makes. At one point, it seems like you're picking on him.

maybe Najib just likes his wife ...with good saving habit since young time ...

Now they both saved enough money to buy diamond and spent RM 400k for dinner

It's a total Niamah

It should be it is my money and I can spend it whatever and whenever I wishes.Where I got the money is none of anybody's business.By the way just for your ears only.It is the money from the two subs that cannot sink.

Some folks really excel in giving money a stinking reputation. People who accumulated wealth through honest means and ingenuity don;t usually flaunt it. Only gangsters, pimps and fake royalty go in for extravagant glitz and false glamor.

Ah Cheap Kor will be defending his position at all costs... more because of his wife really. Just imagine being an ex-PM's wife... it is going to be tortuous for her... the anti-climax.

I can still remember having read a letter to the press from wife of a senior civil servant. She lamented about how their phone stopped ringing (invitations for lunches and dinners, etc.) soon after her husband retired. Their previous problems with household repairs were easily taken care of, but since then, they had to look for repairmen themselves who were not as quick to attend to their problems and of course, having to pay them as well!

He paid it by Ang Pow money from the guests and even from those did not attend. He actually made a good profit out of it!

Nat: ??
Joe: U see all Wanita NONO heads have very good "lubang".
Nat: Wat "lubang"?
Joe: Let's see one got Aye Pee lubang and the other got the Cow lubang.
Nat: Remember to share if got "lubang". Wat kind of"lubang" you have in mind?
Joe: The "Cock Lubang"... I mean we get the Gomen to give me (the Husband) a project for 500million. I'll call it the InterNasional FeedCock program.
Nat: Why FeedCock?
Joe: You see, this project have potential la... we can rear Cocks for food, we can shoot movies and call it Cock and Bull Stories..something like Toy Stories. We can also have talk shows "Talk Cock"; we can also organise sports la, u know "Fighting Cocks" instead of people fighting/boxing.
Nat: Wow. Great project man.
Joe: Initial funding for project 50million. My kids and my salaries as Chairman, CEO, CFO, ... would be 10million a month as this is a big project.
Nat: How about details of the project?
Joe: I'll consult Ar Jeep Gor Gor to work out the details...maybe get middle man and pay the fella 500million commission.

Long Long Sik* of PK-MCA-FZ fame insists its feng shui that their children are all multi-millionaires and multi-talented and experts able to handle all kinds of billion ringgit projects.

A young man married a beautiful woman
who had previously divorced 10 husbands.
On their wedding night, she told her new husband
to "Please be gentle; I'm still a Virgin"

"What?" said the puzzled groom.
"How can that be if you've been married ten times?"

"Well, husband #1 was a Sales Representative; he kept telling me how great it was going to be.

"Husband # 2 was in Software Services; he was never really sure how it was supposed to function;
but he said he'd look into it and get back with me.

"Husband # 3 was from Field Services;
he said that everything checked out diagnostically
but he just couldn't get the system up.

"Husband #4 Was IN Telemarketing; even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver.

"Husband # 5 was an Engineer, he understood the basic process but he wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state of the-art method.

"Husband #6 was from Administration; he thought he knew how but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.

"Husband # 7 was in Marketing; although he had a product, he was never sure how to position it...

"Husband # 8 was a Psychiatrist; all he did was talk about it.

"Husband # 9 was a Gynaecologist; all he did was look at it.

"Husband # 10 was a Stamp Collector; all he ever did was lick it ... God I miss him.

"But now that I've married you, I'm so excited".
"Wonderful", said the husband, "but why?"

"Because you're working for the BARISAN NASIONAL Government,
This time I KNOW I'M gonna get screwed."
