Dissaspointed with PMX Anwar! Still trap in outdated and inward brain drain mantra! Look! Singapore, UAE and many advancing countries have long abandon this brain drain mantra! Let them leave! Let malaysians who have talent go elsewhere! Why waste time in Malaysia if Malaysia continue to employ banglas, and give citizenship to rohinyas! Instead our neighbour Singapore attract talented expats to propel Singapore further! Same with UAE! Do you know half of Singapore workforce are expats! If things turn south, expats will be the first to leave Singapore! So be it! That's why Singapore remain very resilient! Malaysia can do the same! So why bother trying to solve so called brain drain when you cannot even solve food security at home! Our currency is very weak and our bourse is laughing stock at the moment! Dear PMX Anwar! We know your Madani agenda is already 25 years old! It's not a new idea! Seems you continue to recycle old ineffective agenda and rely on empty talks!
Urbanisation has changed humanity alot! Before urbanisation, humanity totally rely on themselves to provide for everything! Nowadays, we can import or export things! No, i am not talking about globalisation! Urbaniatioin is when society pool themselves into one area with modern amnesties and convenient! However, urbanisation almost has it's drawback! Beside, nowadays, with availability of internet, you can be anywhere! I say farming will be better option for older generation! Unfortunately farming is not popular option unless of course you talking about durian farming! With drastic increase in inflation rate, we have no choice but to source food domestically1 Hence farming is not a much better alternative instead of seeking jobs in urban settings!
Basically, what we should be concern is food security brought about by climate crisis! You may not feel it now but it will become daily concern in coming years! We are at the stage we we are taking things for granted! And couldn't care less about environment or climate crisis! But it's real and it's happening!
India has banned export of rice! This has been predicted in fact i already warn this months ago! Hence i have store rice that can last for half a year! But what i didn't anticipate is that Thailand and other producing rice nation also reduce their rice export! And mind you, what if rice supply reach very critical level worldwide!
Government of the day must quickly implement food security! Plant as much rice as possible! And deepen rivers and drainage! We dont know which will hit us first! Either super drought or super flood! In case of super flood, of course it's a few days event! As for super drought, it could go on for months even a year! We really don't know! The weather nowadays is so unpredictable! It was predicted that we are going into drought season but so far that prospect never materialized!
Actually most of us are happy with our weather nowadays! Almost everyday rain and we have not experience much heat like previously! However, we are in climate crisis even at this very moment! Other countries are suffering! China, Hong Kong and the rest had flood, super typhoons and so forth! Thailand suffers drought!
When it comes to eating, i am like 1.0cc Perodua kancil! I don't eat that much nowadays! I eat small portion of rice, more veggie and meat! And i never order soft drinks if dining out! But i can't say the same about others! It's common sight to see the other tables with mountain of rice and toppings! Order soft drinks and some desert after indulging huge portion! I mean that's like sure way to get a bed in hospital! But heay, not my body, none of my business!
Actually Rafizi is correct but media especially the opposition are twisting his statement! Cost of dining out is no different from home cook provided you only go for healthy options! Like taking mix rice with one portion meat and one portion veggie which is the best way! And drink water with it! If you do home cooking, the cost is not that much difference! Unfortunately, we are more driven or rather addicted to artificial flavorings! We dump tons of over saturated toppings! Drink soft drinks! Taking 2nd round even third round! And then we complain how cost of food has skyrocket! True inflation overun our salary but if you are taking healthy portion, it's still reasonable!
To those who want to do ehailing, i say forget it! Don't waste your time! Focus on qcquaring skills that pays well! Ehailing is a losing business for edrivers! Food riders are different since they are using motorcycle and cost of operation are much lower!
The current Madani government indeed indrectly or directly contribute to ehailers dilemma! I mean, why on eart would you allow more competitors by been so lenient to them while established operator like Grab continue to be under microscope! Clearly you can't do that! Make sure all ehailing operators submit to the same rules and regulations! Some operators like Maxim and Indriver do not follow current rules and regulation! In fact safety of passengers are at risk! I am very sure, one fine day, some murder or rape case on Maxi or Indriver happen and authority can't do anything to trace or bring culprit to justice! My advise, don't take Maxim or Indriver or those new ones if you care about safety! And i must say Anthony Loke doing bad job handling this issue!
Today however, you are lucky if you hit 4k a month! Minus expenses, take home earnings will be as good as minimum salary of 1.5k! Worse off, your car may see much higher repair cost due to working longer hour that usually! An ICE car can only operate like 8 hours a day max! This is due to ICE shortcomings! Too many moving parts that wear down easily! Unlike EV which require much much much maintenance! China is way ahead from the rest of the world in last mile transportation! EV ehailing are normal in China!
Last year, been edriver was the best! Earning 7k a month was not hard! As long as you work long hours! Which is fine! Because you need to minus operation cost which may see net of around 4K or so! Which is still very reasonable!
My dietician cousin lament how our foods are just total disaster! Too much fat, too much salt, too much oil, too much sugar but almost no protein! That's why you see so many malaysians who dine out are scaling obesity with very little body muscle! At my age, i could squat 40kg with 12 repetition! I watch my neighbour trying to squat the same weight, barely can do one! And he looks so healthy physicaly! Of course, his body is mostly fat! Decades ago, before fast food, most malaysians were skinny but strong! Why, because very little body fat but with good muscle mass! And of course, ladies back then were much much much more attractive compare to todays!
Speakup! Exactly! I wonder why there's endless crowd in Starbuck and McDoanald! And all thsoe fatty processed food are selling well while healthy alternative considered 'old people' food! I tell you, with the kind of diet our current generation are taking, they will age too fast! By their 50s, they already on waiting list in medical complication ward!
In era where those above 50 already considered antiquated for working enviroment, in Malaysia, those above 80 are prime to be lawmakers! And soon, requirement for PM in waiting will be only those above 100 will be considered!
Seems Anwar continue to recycle his already stale victim card! Surprisingly, even Wan Azizah could have been our PM! Mohiden and Sabri effortless became backdoor PM! Fed up with this self inflicted man!
So yeah, post GE16 will be blessing for those above 80! If you are 76 now, cheer up! You are just entering the perfect age where come GE16, you will have many career options waiting for you! So everywhere you go, vacancy post will proudly display 'Only those above 80 need to apply'!
Mahathir would probably be 102 if he succeeded in capturing Putrajaya! And this round, he should be seen wearing white cap! Basically this new govermment will see the oldest cabinet members in human history! You have Hadi as DPM! And i guess the requirement for cabinet members will be, as long as you are above 80! Making Malaysia the friendliest old folks country if you want to stay at the top of the chain! So we will see AG who also will be above 80! We will have MOF above 80 like Daim! Trade minister like Rafidah! And i won't be suprise Grandpa Koon been elected senator just because he is also above 80!
Cooking should be part of education system! I know years ago, home science was taught for females during their secondary years! I don't know if this subject still taught! But it should and be opened to all!
Problem is, our salary has been stagnant for too long while inflation overshot long time ago! While many giving excuses they have no time to cook, i think many don't know the value of good healthy meals which can only be prepared at home!Take broth for example, you can just dump everything and let it broth for few hours! Or stir fry veggie which only takes 15 minutes to prepare which you rice is cooking! Decision is yours! Eating out is convenient but if you care about your health, there's nothing like well prepared home meals!
Engineering! I have said many times, reformasi is just for Anwar alone! There's no reform for us! So don't place hope Malaysia will change! Anyway, that Saddiq kid is just Mahathir blue eye boy! Whatever he says is script by Mahathir! I am just surprise nobody notice this! Saddiq is a good political actor!
JQuestion! No doubt! But one question how come almost all CCP chairman send their children to US to further their education! Even Chairman Xi daughter is more american than chinese China! In fact it's open secret CCP high official familes are residening in US with screaming and shouting anti America! Dont' ask me why!
Malaysia able to subsidize alot but at future generations expenses! Our future generations will be suffering what most developed countries are suffering now! You think Petronas can continue to provide governemnt with 100 billion annually! No! Petronas will go dry less that a decade! And once Petronas no longer give milk to malaysians, then future malaysians will be hit hard with true cost of living!
Malaysians are addicted to subsidies! Trust me, no countries in the world is more subsidize that Malaysia! Rafizi sound the alarm! That government of the day will bare 100 billion subisidy this year! And tell me, who is the dumbass who insist on removing GST! And our PMX still holding on that government of the day cannot implement GST because majority of malaysians cannot afford it! I beg to differ! If PH didn't go against GST back in GE14, Malaysia would still be economically viable! Our economy is crumbling! The longer GST is not introduce, the prospect of sudden super high GST rate will hit future generation!

During my time a good teachers and a good library are what make the different. Nowadays you can find any subject that interest to you in intenet/youtube.
So nowadays education is all about teaching people to think and follow their heart/brain.
Answer : So what is education! To acquire knowledge! Today you learn many stuff from internet! I know many things about my car thanks to internet! I also know how to fix many stuff thanks to internet! I also learn about geopolitics thanks to many alternative sources from the internet! Today, schools are more agenda driven! Vernacular more towards chinesecentric agenda! National schools towards islamic values! International schools, haix, brainwash young with transgender and stuff! So i am afraid to say, education system are in total mess! And outdated! Tell me, which system teach the young to upgrade themselves through the technology that is available to them!
Actually US has the capability to produce enough oil for it's own domestic needs! Then again, you have those Democrats not knowing what to do! Trump would have pump as much oil as possible! But hey, i guess common sense is a rare thingy nowadays!
Russia Saudi know that their days are numbered! EVs adoption are fast! So they will use whatever necessary to ensure higher for longer price of oil! The truth is, we don't really consump much oil compare to our neighboring countries! And our fuel heavily subsided should not impact inflation that much! However, for the rest of the world, where fuel are not sub sized, this will be a problem! US and EU will be hit with higher inflation for sure! And Saudi Russia strategy will of course hit US as higher interest rate will be imposed sooner or later! Basically, what we see now is just that! Russia Saudi wanting higher for longer oil price! Maximizing as much profit from oil!
Well, if you into oil stocks, perhaps now is the time! There's no shortage of oil! Just that Saudi Russia are terrorizing the world by cutting oil producing! Electrification of vehicles are actually better than predicted! EVs are selling like hot cakes nowadays! Even in Malaysia, Tesla can't keep up with demands! Except China brands unable to counter Tesla pricing! BYD is still pricy compare to Tesla! In fact BYD Dolphin which can be sold at 80k is selling at 100k in Malaysia! But wait for few years and we may see Proton Geely flooding Malaysia with EVs! Geely is already producing some mind blowing EVs, just not as mass produce like BYD or Tesla! But that will soon change as Geely will produce in Malaysia soon!
Lest one forget, PN was given a chance to form government with PH! In fact Anwar totally go along with Agong! We could have seen PHPN unity government and Umno would be the opposition! But no! PN or rather Mohiden snubbed Agong decreed! In fact Mohiden pissed on Agong! Which is extremely rude, very unmalay of Mohiden! So don't go blameing Umno, Dap or what ever! PN had been given red carpet chance to form government with PH and fight corruption!
