Drama Due to Price Hike In Malaysia

Even if you tell me that Justin Timberlake has come to 1 Utama, I don't think it would cause the kind of chaos we saw yesterday. I don't know about elsewhere in the country but the Klang Valley and Kuala Lumpur was thrown into chaos yesterday, particularly as we creep into evenings. To top it off, we've been suffering of rabid thunderstorms the past couple of days causing flashfloods and messing up traffic lights.

As I am writing this, the rolling thunder outside is reminding me that there might be more jam outside today if there are flashfloods or messed up traffic lights or accidents.

Yesterday, our dear beloved much-adored Prime Minister released the news that there will be DRA.MA.TIC increase in the price of fuel. Wahlau-eh, the effect damn geng-chow (out of this world) as SMS messages started circulating, emails sent, phone calls made. By a stroke of luck, I filled my little Waja up the night before not knowing about the price hike today. Somebody loves me. But the moment it was announced, my cousin called me on the phone and we yikkety-yakked about the increase of SO MANY THINGS in Malaysia these days. I complained to him about the time I went for a pack of rice and saw that it went up to nearly RM30 for dunno-how-many-KG when it used to be RM18-something-ish. He was driving when we had that conversation and coincidentally, he was said that he ran out of petrol while fetching his wife back from work. "Walamak! Eh, what's going on here lah! Why so many cars in this bloody stupid petrol station wan?" he screamed. I also didn't expect thing kind of commotion mah, so, I ignored him while we continued with our yakkety-yak about pricing of stuff. The suddenly, he shouted, "Ma fulat, the stupid lady taking so damn bloody long time to put the stupid Mastercard into the pump. Ask her to stuff it up her ***** lah, like that! Niamah" "Ha ha ha ha", I laughed. Then he tulan kow-kow and said, "Eh, we talk another time. I want to go and see what this stupid f*****g lady is doing to the pump". End of conversation. I laughed lah, so typical of my cousin. Then my sister and countless friends SMSed me about the hile of fuel prices. I was at my in-laws lazying around and working at the same time. It hit 10pm before the kids were ready to go home, so, I ta-powed (packed) the kids and all our stuff to go home lah. Just minutes out of the junction, we came to a roundabout. Roundabout got four exits, right? One exit jammed up, never mind. But I rounded the circle a couple of times trying to decide which jam is shorter, man! All of them were jam packed with cars because along these junctions, ALL also got petrol stations! DRAMA, man! I passed LDP (heading towards Kepong one) and was aghast with the number of headlights there were! The jam has to be a couple of miles long! Actually, considering the length of LDP and how the cars were not moving at all, I think it had to all the way to Genting Highlands, MRR2, Kepong, Sungai Buloh and back! Today's e-paper for The Star is filled with nothing but petrol here, petrol there. This price go up, that price go up, electricity go up, bus this, bus that, chicken go up....etc. Marder, even gas delivery service also go up! Tell me something that isn't going up. What is the blardie government doing about this ah? Inflation coming, everybody take cover!!!

i was right la cuz...the bitch had her card slotted up her c*&t...I helped her take it out with my screwdriver and car jack ( and also got my petrol filled up )

The reason we sohais are in this predicament is becos we let the sohais govern our country...we have the power to change but being the sohais we are wtf!! all talk and no action = sohais govern by sohais..

increased prices = inflation = recession = violence becos no money to make ends meet liao...just be careful when you guys go out becos there might be an increase in theft and such...all the best!!

Space Sweepers (Netflix): Movie Review (2021)

Space Sweeper the Korean Sci-Fi Blockbuster hits Netflix 2021 Image Source: KoreaTimes Let me come clean. The first thing I thought when I saw Song Joong Ki leading the lineup for this movie was ' Is this OK?'  ' Hhhmmm.....what about, you know...his personal life', and as a fan of his previous personal work, I had the same doubt I had when he was casted in 'Descendants of the Sun'.  Sorry, Joong Ki. 😳 But the concept of a sci-fi movie in the Korean film platter was enticing. The trailer didn't look half bad either. When it comes to space movies, Hollywood has always been the Big Guy. We expect Hollywood to deliver the big guns and explosions while Kdrama land is all mush, love, arm grabs, ice-cold kiss scenes, love triangles, and of late, time traveling.  So, sci-fi? Interesting. Honestly, I went in with an empty mind which is not necessarily an open one. Ditched the reviews, writeups, Youtube reactions and everything else and hit the 'watch' butto

Maid Side-Kick

I was kind of a little sad when I read the news about this - there will be no live-in Indonesian maids in Malaysia anymore . There are pros and cons to having a live-in maid, as with everything else, but for us, we enjoyed more pros than cons. Back then, when my kids were little, we brought in a family of maids to help with...well, just about everything, and we were like two families merged into one. They ate what we ate, we sleep, they sleep, we shop, they shop, they joke, we laugh, we joke, they laugh...for me, the maid I hired was more like a sister and side-kick to me. For that few years, I was dependent on her to mind-read my schedule and when I need or don't need help. She picked things up quickly and we ended up having lots of moments whereby we were in sync. Today, two of them are on my Facebook and we were gleefully chatting over Facebook Messenger since they've just discovered the wonders of the Internet and Social Media. Since we were more like partners in crim

Stargazer - Stretch Those Sides

I have been doing this pose, part of Cosmic Dance (a type of yoga, I am assuming), called Stargazer pose without knowing it is called Stargazer's pose a lot in the past. You see, sometimes, I don't follow the rules and come up with my own stretches and poses. It is fun. I have on some music, nice, soothing music or just anything I can click on. Then I go with the flow, letting my hair down. Just moving to the music...and that is when I come up with the above Stargazer's pose. This pose really stretches your sides. Keep your eyes on the outstretched hand if you are keeping it pointed to the top, as if you are waving or connecting to a higher energy from the Universe. Your arms will ache a little but hey, toned arms, here you come! :-) For those who want a bigger stretch, it is safe to slowly and gently move the lifted hand towards your back...don't overdo it, listen to your body's complaints and respect it. You don't have to prove anything to anyone, reme
