Harga Minyak

I was really surprised to learn that today's gas price at Nashville is at a low $2.05/ gallon. Equivalently, it's RM1.95/L. How low is that?

Haa, Malaysia bile lagi? I don't recall Nashville offering the lowest gas price in the US. Thus there must be other places here with lower than that 2.05/gallon mentioned above. If the price of gas over here is that low, why can't Malaysia be lower, or heck, at least challenge that? Kata net exporter minyak?

And pasal harga barang? Don't even mention it..

Malaysia's Big 'Progress'

There's this one American guy who used to live in Malaysia back in 2001-2002 I know living in Nashville. He used to work as some kind of a tutor (if I'm not mistaken) back then. His name is Blayne Hall and most of the other Malaysian's here in Vandy know him.

Anyway, I was talking to him the other day and I asked him whether or not he has been back to Malaysia since he left in 2002. He said yes, he was just back last May. And so like anyone else who's ever been to a place repeatedly, he compared the difference between Malaysia then, and Malaysia now.

"Malaysia is a lot different now than it was back then," he said. For a moment there I felt proud. I thought he was going to complement on the development of Malaysia, I thought he was going to say something nice about the environment, about the cities, or heck, about the Malaysian people now.

How I was wrong. Because, this was what he said, "When I was in Sepang, I saw two Malaysian women, without head scarves, smoking by the side of the road. I never saw anything like that before. Maybe in Kl yes, but not anywhere else, not places like Sepang."

Wow. So much for the development of Malaysia. Is this where we're heading?

If so, SOS!
