How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain
Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

Business is about meeting your needs

A friend mentioned about a place where mothers in confinement could go to, instead of each mother employing one 'pui yit' (Cantonese for someone who keeps a mother in confinement company) in their own house. Apparently, because of more expectant mothers in the year of the Dragon, wages of pui yit are said to be higher than before!

Well, like everything else, there are advantages and disadvantages of having a pui yit or the novelty of going to a special care centre. For those more independent and hands-on mothers, like my wife during her time, having a pui yit is not only unnecessary, but a hassle because of having to look after her needs as well! When she had her first baby in Leeds, by caesarian, she was already taking the baby to the market just after two weeks of confinement! In case, anyone says she did that because it was more difficult and expensive in UK to have a pui yit, it was partially true, because when in Malaysia, she did not have pui yit too!


As for meeting a need, now there is even a day care centre for husbands while wives do their shopping!

It has yet to catch on in Malaysia, probably husbands here are likely to put up with the hours of shopping with their wives!
