3xRM100 but still unhappy

I met a rich neighbour at my kids' school. I told her I came to collect the RM100.

She asked, 'Am I entitled to it?'

She's a nice lady. Can't blame her for asking because she'd just bought a RM30K ring recently.

I told her, 'It's OUR money and everyone is entitled to it. Heard even kids holding blue ID but with parents holding red ID also get the money.' Hmmph...

I somehow didn't feel happy when receiving the money from the overworked teachers. That's not because I don't like money, but I'm just too worried about the future of this country.

I'm sure you know what I mean.

Oh dear, 3xRM100 is still something to be reckon with nehh!...
唉,这社会上有很多的人“搵朝唔得晚”咧!

"Have you seen the old man
In the closed-down market
Kicking up the paper,
with his worn out shoes?
In his eyes you see no pride
Hand held loosely at his side
Yesterday's paper telling yesterday's news

So how can you tell me you're lonely,
And say for you that the sun don't shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I'll show you something to make you change your mind..."

Song by McTell Ralph - Streets of London during "prime years".

Hi Anonymous,
To the very poor, RM100 is like from 0 (NONE ) to 1, but to the very rich, it is like from 99 to 100 in which it is much less significant.
The money has different impact on the people. I somehow feel that the government should have a better way to channel the fund to those who need it the most.

夫人,
越明白越擔憂;越了解越氣憤。

Hi Claire, another question...is it necessary to allow those corrupt ministers becoming richer...RICHER...?

Hi Eugene, I like your blog entry about the RM100 issue. You said what I wanted to say but don't know how to put in words. 讀了大快人心。Regarding the million dollar cows, I surely can differentiate between BULL SHIT & COW DUNG!!!!!

Hi Slimy $100, those corrupt politicians stink.
Actually cow dung still can be fertilizer but these people worth nothing.
