Dr Mahathir Mohamad: Oil Price

Dr Mahathir Mohamad: Oil Price

adding salt to thy wound

finally,
the much anticipated oil-price increase has arrived.
arrive it did, in style...
i was left awed, by the sheer suddenness of it. and the quantum!!
ohmigawd!!! 78 cents, that's 41% increase to fuel price, thus 41% in almost everything under Malaysian sun....
to make matters worse, i'm about to take delivery of a new car, booked in february!
what am i suppose to do now? cancel booking? beg the car company to give a 41% discount?

well, immediate response, i now ride a bike to work!
a kapcai!!
all 120km of it to and fro...

so, said the ministers, change your lifestyle!!!
(AS IF THEY WOULDN'T MIND RIDING A BIKE TO PUTRAJAYA!!!)
