Malaysia Today

While politicians from both sides of the political divide are going for each other’s jugular, the rakyat are suffering silently and at the same time desperately trying to make ends meet as price of essential items keep soaring. It makes one wonder whether these politicians have the interests and welfare of the people in mind. Gajah sama gajah berjuang, pelanduk mati di tengah-tengah (Malay proverb: While the elephants battle it out, the mousedeer is killed in between). What has become of Malaysia today?

  1. hello grandpa, that is exactly my sentiment right now. All looks so bleak.. even the stock market seems to be tumbling down and that’s also the public’s sentiment speaking. The unstable market condition, the hike in prices, …who is paying the price? We are!

    And who cares? Certainly not the politicians while they are bashing each other black and blue.

  2. I’ve been rather worried after the elections.Its like a circus over here.Who to trust with so many rumours, claims and counterclaims.You need strong leadership which right now has been too quiet thus allowing the rumour mill to flourish.Seems like everyone has a lot of 2cents to throw whilst doing damage to the economy and confidence of the country.The sins of the past have come to roost I suppose.
    Everyone suffers and the pain is exponentially more as you go down the pecking order.

    The circus is in town all right. This pathetic state of affairs are making us the laughing stock of the world. Who is going to take us seriously from now on? And we wonder why we elected these clowns in the first place – for the unfolding perverted entertainment or for more serious stuff like working for the benefit of the people? Sigh!
