Najib And His Walkabouts And What They Mean For You?

Najib likes to have his walkabouts. It is as if he needs to be reassured that the people still love him.

Like a fix, if you will.

But how have all the staged walkabouts really benefited the rakyat, except perhaps as pathetic photo opportunities that you met the Pm or that he walked up to you and shook your hand??

And a chance for the sycophantic MSM (Main Stream Media) to photosynthetically (how? don't ask me) expand the crowd who meet him and lax wax lyrical about their great transformative leader?

But what's so tranformative of Najib?

His administration flips and flops from one policy to another, and as fast as he is able to come up with one or the other.

His transformational contribution to the country is a Campbell alphabetical soup of nondescript hieroglyphics that few understand and even fewer benefit from, except perhaps for the assorted cronies and the connected?

What the rakyat can only look forward to is the second BR1M 500 ringgit dole out which, in the past, had surely not helped because they are now asking where is the promised manna this time?

It is the beginning of the new year and you need to send your kids to school. You need to buy a thousand and one thing and you don't have the money.

I wonder how Najib's brilliant BR1M brain stroke  brain-wave  is ever going to transform the rakyat's life in any meaningful and sustainable way.

All that it will ever do is to drain the national coffer further and turn the sovereign debt into a bolted horse (if it is not one already) that will be to hard rein in without drastic horsing around, oops, if you will pardon this poor horse joke.

And oh yes, maybe the rakyat can also look forward to a 5kg bag of 1M rice, should Najib feel particularly generous.

After 56 brilliant years of Umno stewardship of the Malaysian economy, if the rakyat are still in need of a 5kg bag of 1M rice help, doesn't that tell you a lot about Umno and Umnonomics?

Doesn't that tell you that it is past time to consign Umno and its cohorts to the dustbin of history where they can continue to deliberate on their transformation?

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...
