I have said before, they will drive their cars until there is no more gas left in the tank. Their cars will stop on the road. Then they will get down and just stand there, not knowing what else to do. This is happening now to 150 students in Egypt – the bulk of whom are Malays. Melayu miskin dulu.
This is from Free Malaysia Today :
150 Malaysian students in Egypt face expulsion
students in medical, pharmacy, dentistry
owe RM4.5m fees after ringgit falls
effects of massive decline in ringgit

RM4.5m in unpaid fees, Berita Harian reported
difficult to pay fees
RM dropped from RM3.20 in Sept ’14 to RM4.13 y’day.

Malaysia-Egypt Medical Science Students Association (Perubatan)

fall of ringgit increased cost to pay fees.
living expenses in Egypt increased 50% over 2 years
tremendous pressure, those who don’t have sponsors, loans
since 2013 JPA, Mara pulled plug on financing programs
My comments : So what? Who cares? Melayu miskin dulu.
Habis macam mana nak jadi “high income” nation? Khazanah kata household income sudah jadi RM6000 sebulan. Di mana pula? Mungkin atas bulan kut? Because certainly these 150 students in Egypt are not from the RM6000 income households.
And do you recall this moron :
Woi bodoh, kali ini hang memang betul. Memang orang gila saja tak faham apa kesan bila ringgit jatuh.
This is also largely a Malay problem – although it does affect all Malaysians. Their world is just crashing around them. At this pace even kangkung will become out of reach.
The plan by Noh Omar to allow housing developers to provide loans tohouse buyers has some serious reasons behind it.
More Malays cannot afford to buy houses which are sky rocketing in prices.
Malays who can qualify for housing loans cannot even afford to pay the 10% deposit or the balance 10% – 20% that is not financed by the banks.
That is why Noh Omar wants developers to give loans to cover that gap. That is NOT a wise thing to do at all.
Again this is largely a Malay problem. The Malays are not making it to ‘high income’.
The Rohingyas are making it to high income. Go to the pasar borong in Sri Kembangan and you can see the Rohingyas minting money. I think they easily make RM10-20k a month from selling fish and meat.
The Banglas are making it to high income. There is a factory owned by a Bangla (I wont say where it is because I get stuff from that fellow) that employs 60 workers. His monthly wage bill exceeds RM100,000. ALL his 60 workers are Banglas.
The Pakistanis are making it to high income. Go to Jalan Masjid India and ALL the textiles shops are run by Pakistani bosses. They employ Indon girls. Some of them were my customers. They all made money.
Go to Low Yat and the Pakistanis run the computer spare parts shops. They are also making money.
The Indons are making money. My customers are majority Indons. They run businesses, work at two or three jobs and just work, work, work. They make money.
Our Indon construction worker became a construction supervisor. Recently he started hiring his own workers and has become a construction subcontractor. Last year he went on the pilgrimage. Drives to work in that Proton MPV.
Siapa miskin dulu? Who cares? So what?
