Impending Snap General Election?

Because of strong opposition from the public and pressure from the opposition coalition Pakatan, the government has decided not to increase the price of fuel, claiming that the decision was taken in the spirit of People First policy.

But nobody is fooled. Malaysians know that this is just another sign of an impending snap general election  PM Najib is planning to call.

Once the Barisan led government is able to win the general election, it will just proceed to increase fuel price with nary a bother.

But not a word from the government as to what it plans to do to reduce the humongous wastage of public funds by government departments annually, or what it plans to do to fight corruption which it is estimated, costs Malaysians some RM22billion each year or whether the government will stop awarding public contracts directly to parties which many Malaysians see as government cronies whom the government is not loath to bail out every time they fail to deliver.

Or whether the government plans to slash subsidy to the IPP (Independent Power Producers) who produce electricity to sell to Tenaga at some three times the rate per unit what Tenaga sells to consumers in an arrangement hard to understand when Tenaga produces more than sufficient energy for the country's entire needs!

Or what the government plans to do to stop the massive illicit outflows of funds.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
