My barber rides a Honda

I went to my barber last weekend and I noticed that he rides motor cycle now.

He used to take the bus to work for all his live.

So I asked him why now?

He said he couldn't afford the fare anymore and found out that riding is more economical.

I found out that's oddly quaint.

I always watch max out, a TV series about financial management, in each episode a financial advisor will help a family to repay their debts and eventually avoid bankruptcy.

In one episode  the adivisor advises the advisee to get rid of her car and start using the public transport because it is cheaper in cost. got that?

While in this country things turn to go the other way round, where people avoid public transport and opt for the more economical motorcycle.

The chat ends when my hair is done,and I come to a conclusion on the matter.

Some party gone frenzy demanding for cheaper fuel without realizing he only owns a 1990's proton, while Nazri Aziz's son drive a RM500k hummer.

If the price of fuel's goes down, those rich people's son and daughter will benefit the most and us the less fortunate will get only peanuts. Think about it.

Instead we should ask for better public transportation, more subsidies for the fuel, tolls and everything related to it. Because this is truly the wheel the poor.

Today, some bus hike their fare due to the hike in fuel price, others make it less frequent to cut the cost thus make it less reliable.

If more subsidies were to be poured into transportation services. the irregularities may be avoided.

Therefor we are the one who will benefit the most together with those humble rich people who is willing to take the bus to work.

Jo or Puteri commented in one of my post. In developed countries most of its citizen doesn't even know how to drive due to effectiveness of their public transportation.

Hence Malaysia on its way to the year 2020 should start improving their public transportation in other word make it as affordable as possible so that our neighbors become more jealous of us OR else I might start a tut tut business here in Malaysia.
