He said it's not nice of me to suggest for the people not to complain too much and then telling them about my overseas travel plans.
"If I didn't know you any better, I would have thought that you are mocking the people. We, the rakyat are really suffering now, okay," he added.
Honestly, it was not my intention to mock anyone over the financial difficulties issue.
I was just suggesting for all of us to be realistic and not go overboard with our complaints.
That way, those who can do something about the matter can consider our message and do something about it.
It's better than just getting them upset and in the end refuse to help us.
What's wrong with conveying our message without getting all emotional?
Personally, I tend to ignore people who shout and scream not so nice things at me.
I just don't like it.
It's the main reason why I decided to remain neutral ever since the Umno civil war broke out last year.
Both sides appeared to be dominated by not so bright people who resorted to screaming and shouting when they can't argue their case intelligently.
For instance, there's that lady who screamed and shouted the word "kencing" to described her unhappiness towards PM DS Najib Razak. I honestly felt very uncomfortable watching the video and then realising that she has been hailed as a heroine by some people.
Then of course there was that quarrel of mine with a DAP reject turned Umno saviour and penyelamat ummah from the Najib camp who is instigating Umno to be a gangster party with the motto of "either you are with us, or against us".
I do wonder what these sorts of people were trying to achieve by using words such as "super moron" and "orang tua nyanyuk" (senile old man)?
For me, that's what brought about the whole thing to this level where finding peace on our political landscape now is next to impossible.
Seriously, I'm fed up with the whole thing.
I rather talk about being realistic now.
I may not like the Najib camp for all the stupid things they are doing, but realistically, I don't believe the effort by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his supporters to topple him before the next general election will succeed.
As I wrote previously, everyone should just wait for the next polls and not make things worse for the country.
Those who now hate Najib should just bare with it for the next two years.
I'm okay if they want to campaign against Najib, but hopefully they don't do so by disrupting life of Malaysians who just want to make ends meet in this not so economically solid time.
The main thing for us now is to make sure this country remains safe.
Actually, for now, there are still quite a lot of people who can still afford a not so bad lifestyle.
Here is an example;
Anyway, I told my friend that I have to be truthful by admitting that at personal level, I don't really have much to complain at the moment.
My finances is currently quite tight but not that much worse than previously.
In fact, I'm earning more now with my current job compared to the last one.
My work is also less stressful and my current employers are very nice to me compared to my former bosses, who are a bit of the pain in the ass type.
Well, maybe I'm among the lucky few.
I admit that there are those who are not as fortunate as me, and I'm not mocking them.

Nonetheless, I'm still not convinced that this country will fall apart before the next general election if we all don't hurry up the effort to topple Najib.
I just don't see it happening, okay.
So, I think it's still alright for those who want to get rid of Najib to wait and do so at the ballot box instead of resorting to not so nice things which would only make things worse for everyone.
As for my travel plans, I actually thought of going to Japan again right after returning from my trip there last year.
I like Japan that much, okay.
Actually, if we plan our trips carefully in advance, they can be quite affordable.
For now, I can still afford to have such plan.
It's not that I'm rich or anything like that, but I always believe that putting on our best effort can get us what we want as long as we are being realistic about it.
And I can do so without even turning myself into a paid blogger, okay.
Well, whatever it is, I'm going to take it easy for now.
Want to enjoy this weekend.
Hope you all enjoy it too and not get all stressed up all the time :)
