More Of The Same Old Crap?

When the opposition coalition Pakatan took over the Selangor  state government following the 2008 general election, it set out to bring about a pro- and people friendly administration.

It has largely succeeded, offering to help for example Selangor students starting their college or university life by granting those in need initial financial assistance.  It also offers Selangor residents who have lost an elderly family member Rm2,500.00 in funeral expenses, something never done before in Malaysia.

The Pakatan state government also offers free water for the first Rm11.00 worth of use and has been trying for a number of years already to buy over the various privatised water entities to try to streamline and rationalise the production, management and distribution of water in the state with a view to further bring down the cost of water for Selangor residents.

However, it seems that certain quarters are not too happy about it and are trying to frustrate the Pakatan state government, even though it has offered over Rm6 billion to buy over the water entities
, a sum many feel is more than reasonable and fair, considering that some of the water entities' financial health is allegedly anything but rosy.

Now it seems that the Federal government is trying to bail out the state water entities to the tune of billions of Ringgit.

If true, it will be another black day indeed for Selangorians in particular and Malaysians in general, for it seems that the rakyat's welfare always takes a back seat to vested interests.

Is it more of the same old crap from the Basrisan led Federal government?

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...
