Just now, managed to avoid two taxis that are moving erratically from side to side. Might be due to working overnight, these drivers are sleepy and thus affected their driving. However, for beginner drivers like me, it is quite unnerving. I do understand that due to the rising cost of living, they need to work extra hard and extra hours, but is it worth it...at the cost of lives?
Nothing much here, the esteemed government just annouced that the workers would still be paid once a month. Then, why all the hullabaloo previously? Why not these ministers do all the researches first and after that, ONLY come out with the solution? Why blurt everything out, work up the people....ada yang dah kalut marah-marah...and only then said, no..we are not going to do that...back to the ole procedure.
Hmmph...really reminds me of the previous issue of selling petrols to the foreigners la.
Now the government just do and act ikut suka hati. When the people got angry and protests, only then they try to find other solutions. Where had those people that think before act, went? Oh, lupa pulak, they call these people seniles....
Really sad. We are living in a turbulent time, caused more chaotic by these people that act first before thinking.

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
