Blessing in Disguise

I should be commenting on current political events kan?

What do you think if I say that the middle class can cope with the increased fuel price and that there is no real hardship caused? That the increased fuel cost is good and timely as it forces everyone of us of the "take take take" mentality to realise that we can indeed, make do without? That we can now be creative and think of ways to save petrol? Save money? save the environment?

People are finding out the cheaper option. Lavish expenditure is curtailed. Families eat in more.

There is always a silver lining to a dark cloud.

I think we have a long way to go before we become firstworld citizens. I passed some old buildings near Menara KL- they are definitely old But are they preserved? heck no, instead they look like they are dens to drug addicts. In Singapore the same type of building has been turned to tourist attractions. Why is it so hard for DBKL to do that? What do the Singaporeans eat to make them think differently in terms of appreciating nature and heritage?

Of course, having said that, Malaysia still has a lot going for it and I would live here over Singapore any day.
