Jovial was telling me the other day that if he chose to go to a "function" where Najib (yes,our PM) will be "riding bicycle" to raise fund for Chinese schools in Penang this coming Sunday,he will be given RM10 as an allowance,cheekily he said he would not want to go unless given RM50.
Of late,it really got me thinking of something politically speaking,why suddenly there was this good news,that good news.Why suddenly the repeal of ISA,why PM wants to "ride bicycle" to raise fund for Chinese schools,why the gomen has in principal agreed to give "financial aids" to those who earn less than RM3 k a month,mirroring what Hong Kong and Singapore were doing? why.
I was just thinking to myself, could the gomen be so kind if there was no 308 political tsunami,could the gomen be so people centric, to the extent of "aiding" the so called poor and even with our budget deficit? In retrospect,I think change is good,therefore we must keep changing.
Personally I really don't feel at ease with all these goodies,simply because I feel there is never a free lunch in this world. Millions upon millions can be spent NOW to make one look good(irrespective whether to regain the lost states or the two third majority) but we are not like Hong Kong and Singapore where they have surplus budget and the people must realize that we are spending the "future" money.
In bad time, we need money to prime the economy,to stimulate "local purchase" and do we really think "bad time" is not nigh? look at Greece,look at Italy and many to come.
I like it when my youngest son Marvell tells me this,"Papa, eating too much sweet things is bad for our health" I agree with that and we must always remember too much of good news sometimes can be bad and seriously "there is no free lunch one"
Have a great weekend and do spend wisely, when we see RED few days in a row in the stock market,you can sense that the bear is rearing its ugly head already....
Note : You can play a prank on the radio, watch a match or two of MU,try acting cool, we can still tell what's real cool and what's a real fool.
