quote - soal & siasat (q&a)

aku pagi pagi tadi bukak e-mail sekali ada bagero mana la bagi komen pemerah otak untuk di buar buar kan. ini dia soalannya;-

"blad, gua bagi lu satu pointer.

the wait that did not end.

how 2009 rolled in, with a disappointment.
government did not revise the petrol price when they should have. how they fail to live up the promise, and enjoying too much from the petrol tax.

would you be able to comment the rationale of the government's actions (revision of petroleum products prices)
and implementation of petroleum tax?

its like they are deciding whether we should or should not enjoy cheap prices.

but, when the commodity price increase, we are supposed to bear the sky-rocketing prices?

comment blad comment."


soalan soalan begini memang aku telah nanti nantikan selama ini pasal masa harga minyak jadi 1.8 aku pun terpikir dan gairah untuk menunggu reaksi orang malaysia apa bila harga minyak naik balik kepada harga palat (ie RM 2.5 ke atas). Aku dah berimiginasi mogok, traffik jam dan cacian dan makian kepada pihak kerajaan..seperti kejadian yang telah kita lihat masa harga minyak naik 40%. Tahu kah anda bila kerajaan membuat aksi untuk menaik kan harga minyak iya telah meninggal kan banyak kesan buruk seperti inflasi dan merendah kan kos hidup orang orang di malaysia. Dengan mempunyai sebab untuk menyimpan billion, kerjaan sendiri telah rugi dari segi ekonomi dan juga dari segi sosial. 

Sebagai Contoh:-

1. Hilang Kredibiliti Sebagai pemimpin oleh rakyat
2. Inflasi; harga naik nak turun balik silap ar. cuba bayang kan kalu hargi meter parking dekat jalan jalan di kota raya naik -abang abang dbkl mesti kene adjust kos untuk parking meeter itu. kalau harga turun balik mesti kena adjust balik. itu semua kos bai. lain la kalu semua mesin tu automated boleh ubah dengan satu klik je. Malang sekali negara kita belum celik IT lagi, tetapi syarikat yang berstatus MSC banyak lah. Konsep atau model ini boleh di guna kan untuk semua benda benda. kalu lu rajin, kira la berapa banyak adjustment dan kos yang perlu di hitung kan. dengan kebebalan tauke tauke, macam la dia nak tukar. kalu lu suruh. dia tanya lu balil " lu siap?"

walaubagai mana pun aku tak mau memperlekeh kan informasi yang lu orang dah tau, kata dah lama follow blog ni en? lu orang pun misti dah jadi intelek dah sekarang...

untuk menjawab soalan si idealist aku rasa lu kene sedar la bro pasal lu tak idup dalam dunia yang ideal. "ideally" minyak sepatut nya free la kut en? baru ideal. nak lagi ideal? lepak kat granada, baca buku, makan tapas, jalan kaki pusing pekan dan pada waktu malam lepak sembang dengan chikaro di mirador san nicholas sambil isap yaw. baru ideal tu bai. bagi aku ideal itu hanyalah fantasi dan igauan. 

Soalan kamu-" government did not revise the petrol price when they should have. how they fail to live up the promise, and enjoying too much from the petrol tax.

would you be able to comment the rationale of the government's actions (revision of petroleum products prices)
and implementation of petroleum tax?

its like they are deciding whether we should or should not enjoy cheap prices.

but, when the commodity price increase, we are supposed to bear the sky-rocketing prices?"

1. why would they want to revise the petrol prise when they should have. and yes the petrol price had plummeted to its lowest since ages ago eg. USD >50. so what is the ideal price of of petrol now? RM 1.00? it would be a disaster for the country as a whole if such actions were in place. why? the price of oil will definitely skyrocket another round.  the question is are we ( globally) ready for such price hike again? -back then during the yom kippur war(70s) (contra israel) it took many years before the global economy naturalize the shocks- it took many years before the japs came out with the idea of an ideal car "datsun, vice-murano or non land rover". with the excitement over the past years that we had, it will take many years for us to adjust with the future shock of the global economy and future hikes of petroleum. 

2. Why am i so optimistic? its a fact that the import of oil from the states decreases since Fannie mae and freddie mac. with crisis and the bailout plans for all big banks and car manufacturers, the country itself is on its safe mode  by all mean focus on the supply side economics in order to become the god of the world another time. It is not that the states is reducing the consumption of petroleum products, in fact it is not possible for them to cut down the use of the petroleum products as its is the key driver for America economy. Having stored billion of gallons of petroleum, the country is now using it to revive the economy of all 50 states (+ hawaii). With models enticed by the united states seems viable and feasible to ensure the stability of future setbacks, it is not impossible for fast movers such as China, india and others to follow the storage model. If china, india or others were to follow such model; the imported volume will definitely increase over next couple of years or hundred years. Such increase in demand of oil will definitely increase the price of oil . Not only that, if the bail out plans were to be successful; the yanks will be the key player again in the petroleum market. Hence; the petroleum price will definitely skyroket anthor time (higher than before).

3. so if the government wants to reduce the price of petroleum products and other products; what goood will it gives? we may be able to save atleast 600 ringgit per month up until the price increase again. say the price of oil will increase in the next 36 months (how ideal) we may be able to save up to 21k for the next 3 years. what good will it bring? we may be enticed to use up the money to pay for the down payment of a brand new gazz guzzling machines which is quite an irony.

4. we cant blame the government on the price of oil. if we cant afford means we got to change. bak kata pushkin bai, " there is no such thing as happy ending ennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn."

heavy blad.

i hope with all the petrol tax money they are getting, something will be done into alternative energy R&D.

masa petrol price naik dulu, a lot of our con-businessmen increased their prices with the lame excuse of increased petrol price.

seperti mana lu sedia maklum jack, consumables price are sticky by nature. any realistic way that we can bring them down?

aku berada di dalam keadaan sadis di mana prospek kehidupan masa hadapan seems bleak.

credit crunch yang membuatkan foreign investors jumped ship, dan yang lebih sedih aku kerja (read : hamba abdi) di medium sized multinational company.

fuuuuccckkk!!!!

wa agree with lu blad,

aku rasa it is the time with should think of another way to live, don't need to bergantung harap 100% on oil. the way to change is to change our thinking first

for example, i am now on my way to set up my own business, work at home and global. thanks to internet 2.0 everything becoming so damn global. for this i can cut down my fuel expenses for at least 80%. then i will drive less and expand my car for servicing from 3 month period to 6 month.

grow my own vege and cook at home

separate my rubbish and recycle

sound too ideal and hard?

lu try la blad, sure lu terkejut punya. after that petrol hike ke down ke u doesnt give a damn care as u live only 30% je bergantung pada oil.

your future is the way how you live

Jack Lingam said...

semestinya,. kita tak patut bergantung kepada minyak 100% dan kita juga tak perlu bergantung 100% kepada kerajaan- masa untuk celik dan reform hati dan mental.

bak kata joy division- new down fades annnnnnnnnn

aj said...

ye blad, mmg kita tak perlu 100% bergantung pada kerajaan. sampai bile nak harapkan kerajaan to protect ourselves?

wa igt after dah succes wa nak try to live in other countries and became nomad, and world is my contry. from here the freedom that we seek maybe akan emerge as part of the lifestyle. we dont need to afraid of being scared by our own goverment. kalo tak puas hati just say babai an leave for another country. tp nak jadi camni mental kena kuat beb. wa bukan maksudkan jadi pelancong tp really left your foundation everywhere we go.

perghh wa nak set up this future and localize the world

Jack Lingam said...

i like the idea of a free world or a local world. in fact ive thought about it many years ago. but how far can it go? we cant even accept the migrants from indo, bangla, myanmar, vietnam, china and others. we even quarrel abt the indian and chinese in our country..

not only us. eg france. I had to bring my passport for 3 months when i was there. then got picked up by the "otek" and held for 5 hours in the lock up- just because of my sepet eyes? apa halllllllllllll en

dude jack,

lu sell side ke buy side?

abe borjuis said...

aku rasa pengalaman memantat chikaro2 antarabangsa sudah cukup untuk diri kamu menglokalisasikan dunia serta pandanganmu.

aj said...

betul jack,

wa pun dream of such thing tp tula as i said earlier we need to change our thinking first, that the hardest thing to do

but maybe we can allow such thing if the person have a good track record in behaviour. if bad cannot enter easily. maybe this is a dream. but FORD start with a dream and now half of the world is moving because of his dream to let man move without horses.

this morning i read newspaper saying that the fuel price going to hike up again. since our petrol is floating base on that sure in near future our price also increase.

hihi i am sori to hear u once being picked up by 'otek' and been in lock-up for 5 hours that is pain in the ass man

but if Napoleon Hill can made his son hear without ears because of his change of thinking, we with ears and perfect senses sure can do much more

like what u said "REBELISTIK!!!" ennn

Dari mana?
