Government Says "Change Your Lifestyle"

In view of the huge increase of fuel price, electricity tariff, express bus fares, prices for chicken, rice, bread, steel and cement, the Malaysian government has called on all Malaysian citizens to change their lifestyle ................... watch the video to learn how you could survive in this era of higher cost of living (it's in Malay language but you will understand it just by looking at the video) ...............

The malay words "Ubah Gaya Hidup" means "Change Your Lifestyle".

This video is so true! Every time the gov increases something they ask us to change our lifestyle & eventually there is nothing left to change. All of us will be naked wearing slippers

The only way to fight this is to spend less and save more. When the moneymakers realize the people won't pay their prices they will lower them again.

I also think that Malaysia had no choice but to remove subsidies. The whole nation will be bankrupted if the government is forced to subsidize commodities. The IMF and World Bank would love to loan you a few trillion dollars at 8% interest, I'm sure.

acura - try asking them to take the buses and lrt or try fetching kids to schools going thru those traffic jams without police escorts

yo - yeah i totally agree with u that they shld take the public transport first b4 telling the public to take it. the politicians do not know what's going on with the real world.

conviv - besides getting the politicians to realise their decisions, we should be on the austerity drive to safeguard our savings.

dora - cldn't agree more

bernardc - hahahaha ..... don't worry, i'll visit u then

elezend - i wld say this generation of people has not gone thru the hardships during the mid 80s.
