How Come Bolehlanders Are Not Talking About The 11th Malaysia Plan?

Have you noticed that nobody is talking about the 11th Malaysia Plan?

Maybe there are a very few who have and that just goes to show that nobody cares about what the government is saying or planning to do nowadays.

That is because Bolehlanders no longer trust Ah Jib's administration.

What Bolehlanders are hearing these day is 1MDB and missing billions and corruption and abuses

of power. And evasive answers. And nobody owing up to anything or taking responsibility for anything.

What we are hearing is how some people can afford to live it up jet setting and partying and holding grand expensive dos while many Bolehlanders can't even call the house they stay in 'home' because they just might be evicted because they cannot afford to pay rent as the cost of everything shoots up and the value of the Ringgit dives south.

And while the powers that be continue to holler that they are the champions of the Malays, many Malays still need handouts like BR1M to survive and then be yoked, like everyone else, by the burden of GST that takes away more than what BR1M is supposed to give.

We are not even certain whether there is 1Malaysia to talk of.

Because of people like The Frog and the Kiasu Chinese wannabe 'Malay' guy and NGOs like the Is and Ma and the Per and Kasa fellows with their decidedly antagonistic bytes. And the government keeping quiet. Or aiding and abetting in their silence?

Or whether there really is freedom to practise one's faith without being told what is permissible. Like being told to take down the cross from a church building. Or told that you can't utter a certain name because you are not of a particular faith.

Because too, Bolehlanders have lost faith in the institutions that are supposed to mean much to them - like the law enforcement agencies and the institution that is supposed to be their last bastion of hope, the judiciary.

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...
