Daphne Series Episode 1 - Budget 2016

I posed a question on my Whatsapp group chats , and was a bit surprised that my friends weren't too bothered about the Budget 2016 announcement. One was even a financial coach and he had not seen the budget highlights (it was day 5 after the budget was announced)! Many think the Budget is just about the GST. Others didn't care.

Which category do you fall in and what are your views about the Budget 2016? Post your comments here ya? In the meantime, this is what I had compiled.

I am so MARAH.

A domestic helper from our block was found dead trying to escape from her employer who apparently abused her. She tried to climb 11 floors down from her window using tied linen and a hose. The self-made rope gave way and she fell down and died.

When the police arrived, my own helper and her gang of bibiks told me that they would often see the victim gesturing for help from the window when were downstairs at the park.
The body was malnourished and there was speculation that she was too weak to hold on tight to the rope, hence her fall.
I heard there was not enough evidence to bring the employers to court (as the only witness was the deceased victim).
I told bibik that she should have told me this earlier but she and her gang didn't think much about it as "kami indak mahu kacau hal rumahtangga orang lain".
However, when bibik saw a new maid doing the very same gesture the following weeks after the death of victim number 1, she immediately told me and I went over to the house to investigate.
As I could not see or hear anything, I went and made a report to the management team. The manager told me the police had spoken to the male employer who admitted his wife was having some sort of breakdown but denied abusing their help.
I had mentioned this incident to some other persons including my manicurist who comes over and does my nails at my house.
Coincidently, on the day I told my manicurist about the "jumping maid incident", she bumped into the new employee/helper and managed to find out she was being abused.
A few days later, the whole family moved away.
To cut the long story short, victim number two was rescued and I think the police nabbed the couple.
Had bibik came to me earlier, a life could have been saved.
Sometimes, we need to be "kepoh" and not have a "tidak apa" attitude.
I stand united against Crime with MARAH.
Here's a different story I would like to share on why I am onboard with MARAH.

How To save money like Chinese *Pimple*

Today, I told my M4M whatsapp Group that I was going to pray for a more positive day. Initially, I thought I'd give myself a "social media fast" today (since it's  been quite a bit of a bummer reading what's on my feed of late), but I'm glad I was "itchy fingers". Found this hilarious video online.


Sigh. Rather than get all worked up ... let's just breathe in and tighten our belts.
