1. SUPERMARKETS CLOSING DOWN.
This list of supermarkets / hypermarkets closing down has become viral.
The following supermarkets will be closing down:
1. AEON Big Kota Damansara closing on 28th February 2017
2. AEON Big River City on 28th February 2017
3. AEON Big Bangsar South on 15th March 2017
4. Tesco Scott Garden on 28 Feb 2017
5. Giant Superstore Viva home on 2 Mac 2017
6. Giant Bintang Sg Way on 28 Feb 2017
I just received confirmation from someone in this business that this list is correct. Here is more information :
“Yes all closing very true. Business is bad. ..Giant already closed SIX outlets last year. Rumour is Giant is closing another SIX outlets this year.”
Hello media people, call Aeon, Tesco and Giant and check with them lah. If Giant is closing SIX more outlets this year, that is about 1000 workers being laid off.
The economy is shutting down. Especially at the street level. The people are suffering. Businesses are suffering. They are closing, people are becoming unemployed.
2. STUDENTS ALLOWANCES CUT 35%.
Recently, sad news from student from Institute Pendidikan Guru (IPG).
They just received long delayed allowance for Jan and Feb 2017.
Amount received very much reduced….. a cut of 35%.
IPG student in KL given RM700
Amount hardly enough if staying outside campus. Worse now…. only RM400++ how could they survive? Odd job… part time job…some may fall into vice.
My comments : In Kuala Lumpur, a 3 room apartment in the Kerinchi area rents for about RM1800. One room rents for RM600. Even if two students share one tiny room, that is RM300 for room rental alone. One breakfast costs minimum RM3.00. Lunch costs nothing less than RM5.00 (nasi putih with one lauk). Dinner will cost the same. Maggie Mee is about RM1 per packet. Can they eat Maggie Mee seven days a week?
3 HOSPITALS FACE SEVERE BUDGET CUTS.
“Encik Syed. Kawan saya HIV patient tak dapat blood test result last month sebab Hospital Sungai Buloh budget takde untuk buat blood test. Dia sepatutnye dapat result last month, ubat pun tak cukup stok. Kalau sebelum ni boleh dapat sebulan sekotak sekarang cuma dapat separuh je dalam packet plastik.”
This is getting to be real serious. People will die. If they cannot diagnose the cancer in three months, it could be too late to save the patient.
4 SCHOOL BUILDING FACING COLLAPSE.
PEKAN, 16 Feb — risiko bumbung runtuh memaksa 482 pelajar belajar di makmal
masalah itu berlarutan sejak dua tahun lalu
pengetua (SMK) Indera Shahbandar di Kuala Pahang mengakui buntu
terpaksa jadikan makmal sebagai kelas walaupun bahaya
Semua bumbung 10 blok bangunan sekolah tidak selamat
struktur kekuda besi yang dipasang tidak lagi kukuh
12 kelas tingkat 3 tidak digunakan kerana “boleh runtuh bila-bila masa”
tiada usaha membaiki bangunan tersebut
runtuh kali pertama pada 2015
surat yang diterima tidak menjanjikan keputusan
sebaliknya salah-menyalah antara (JKR) dan kementerian
Sender’s comments : “Kpd pengetua kat Pekan ni, rasa kecewa pun tak guna. Kerajaan dah nazak, takde duit…terpaksalah jaga sendiri.. Mesin OMR pun tak mampu nak ganti, sekolah dah nak runtuh pun sama juga takde peruntukan nak baiki.
Hanya peruntukan utk PERMATA bertambah dari tahun ke tahun.
Bajet private jet sama jugak, anytime boleh terbang sana sini.
Kesian kat budak2 jadi mangsa kerakusan kerajaan kleptokrasi MOI“

My comments : Most likely a crony contract, using sub standard materials. The building roof is falling apart. The sad thing is this problem has been going on for two years.
The Kementerian is just tai-chi-ing the problem to the JKR and vice versa. They dont have money. So the Kementerian does not want to pay and neither does the JKR want to foot the bill to repair the roof.
Folks, the “No Income Nation” is here. The country is grinding to a halt.
5. Here is some caricature about the Menteri Pendidikan :
“Bajet yang terbaik” ? Kepala hotak hang.
That RM260 Billion Budget was fake.
There is no RM260 Billion.
The gomen has no money.
The situation is worsening now on a daily basis.
For each supermarket that closes, at least 200 workers will lose their jobs.
Delivery lorries, van drivers, lorry drivers, mechanics who service the delivery vans and lorries will all lose their jobs or suffer business slowdowns. They will also become unemployed.
Suppliers who sell goods to all these supermarkets will suffer losses and slow downs. They will also be laying off their staff and workers.
It goes on and on.
ABOLISH THE GST. PLEASE ABOLISH THE GST.
CALL FOR AN EMERGENCY CABINET MEETING AND ABOLISH THE GST.
ABOLISH THE GST, REMOVE ALL DUTIES AND TAXES ON IMPORTED CARS AND VEHICLES AND THE BN WILL WIN THE PRU14. HOW ABOUT THAT?
