Life must go on...

We are all been having headaches of what's going on in Malaysia lately. With all the price hiked up, there are more unexpected events are to be happening in the near future.

Remember last time I told you to watch Keluarga di 9 at TV9, for those who had missed it, you may check it out here

As for this past few weeks, I've been busy moving out of my house in Bandar Baru Uda to an apartment in Taman Tampoi Indah II, still in JB, smaller house but good enought for me alone. I've inherited most of the furnitures and enjoyed living quite comfortable in here.

Expenses has been so high recently, I may have to cut on some expenses. I've no long term projects for the time being. It's like 'kais pagi makan pagi'.

I'm glad that I just finished a few projects which is about to be delivered this week. Raja Ezrin's wedding would require me to deliver a custom album, a frame and a normal sticky album which I consumed most of my free time during those hectic days to do them. Then come Azrai's wedding in Seremban then Marini's project of doing the profiling for talents of her new talent agency.

Tomorrow, I may have to go up to KL to deliver.

So time to sleep. Hope to see you guys again soon.

There are reasons why i didn't update this blog so frequent anymore. Aside from being extra busy moving out and get my famly to settle down in Senawang, Seremban, I was quite busy with photography projects and so on.

Plus, if I updated this blog last week, It would have been full of anger and hatred.

Who wouldn't be 'benganged' with the recent petroleum product price increase?

Last time, when the new rate was introduced, my Honda Civic full tank was more or less RM96. Now i have to fork out another RM40 for a full tank of petrol. It went much higher for my frontier which is using diesel. It used to be RM110 per tank. Now, it is an additional RM70 per tank.

The inflation is highly expected.

I remembered last time the government says that the high car tax was in order to support the petroleum subsidy to the rakyat but now, even though the subsidy has been lessen, the high car tax was not even reduced.

So what's going on?

And I don't understand why do we have to pay premium price for the petroleum product in the first place?

In the UK for example. A just graduated young professional income was averaged at 2.3K pounds a month, despite of the high tax being impounded to them, they're enjoying 117 penny per litre (which is 1.17 pound per litre) for the unleaded petrol.

Comparing money to money, yes they are much higher in price which would be around RM7++ but comparing to their salary, that would be more or less 0.05% of their salary per litre.

In Malaysia, averaged income for a young professional is rated at RM1.8K a month. Our petrol price, RM2.70 per litre is already 0.15%, which is 0.1% more that people in the UK.

Imagine the poor people? Those who make their living with rm600 a month? Can they really afford it?


* Today, please watch TV9 around 1-2PM. I think if they didn't sensor my stupid comment, i would on the Keluarga di 9.
