We Should Disband The Tabung Harapan Malaysia Fund!

It all started with some guy or gal who felt he/she could help alleviate the national debt as some sort of national service or patriotic thing.

I am not going to take issue with that. You could quietly do that if you really felt strongly about it.

It turned opportunistic when the new PH government took advantage of that to set up a fund to channel the contributions.

What you do when a government that does, whether intended or not, is put pressure on the people to come up with something to show that they are patrotic.

Companies then take advantage to gain publicity for themselves by making a show of their patriotic spirit. When all they they would have much preferred is to have kept a low profile and the money to themselves. All so pretty leh! Or hypocritical hahaha.....

The saddest part is when you parade a young contributor with his savings in his piggy bank. No one will want to question his contribution, but is there any necessity to make a show of it?

I do think well of Hannah Yeoh. But in this instance I agree with Latheefa Koya

In fact, I do think that the PH government should disband the fund.

In fact, the crooks who have been responsible for the 1 trillion debt should be the ones be made to pay.

And those cronies of the past governments, including those of Mahathir's earlier tenure, who have benefited immensely from their associations should be the first ones to help out with generous contributions without having to be told.               

And it is for the government of the day to do their job to reduce the national debt without having to put pressure on the poor rakyat to help pay for the sins of others.

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...
