The PH Government Decision To Spend 40 Million Ringgit To Telecast The World Cup Is Wasteful At This Juncture!

The PH government's decision to spend some 40 million ringgit to telecast the World Cup in June is a wasteful exercise at the current juncture when the government itself is asking the rakyat to help to reduce the national debt by contributing to Tabung Harapan Fund (THF)

Getting to watch or not watching the World Cup matches is not a crucial thing. Besides, not everyone is a football fan. For those who are, many already have Astro subscriptions of their own even in the kampungs. For those who don't, they can go watch the games at the mamak stalls and coffee shops.

It is only for about a month's worth of football matches and the money spent on the telecasts is pochi! Gone for good! What good does that serve the people? Half the time, half the so-called football fans would be more interested in betting on who wins and losing big time to the betting syndicates and getting into trouble with the Ah Longs!

As for the appeal to the rakyat to help to reduce the country's debt by contributing to THF, why should the poor rakyat be asked to pay for the excesses of those who are said to have plundered the country's coffers?

The rascals are the people who should be asked to pay for their sins. Confiscate their ill-gotten assets and properties and make them face the music in the court.

After a flurry of highly published raids and investigations, some people could still walk free and mock the PH government of spooking the markets for revealing the true state of the national debt.

What a beautiful picture!

Enough is enough. PH government should get on with their job and stop playing the victim.

In fact, rich people like Daim and Maha family and their one-time cronies who had benefited immensely from their associations, should be the first to contribute generously to THF.

The ordinary rakyat should not be asked to help out with contributions. As it is, they are already suffering badly from the excesses and indiscretions of the previous regime.

Instead, the PH government should work hard to reduce unnecessary expenses and find ways to stimulate the economy, fast!

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

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...
