~*you ain't so poor, baby...

You know, working in the twin towers can really disillusion one. Everytime you open the papers, you’ll read about how people are badly affected by the price hikes and poor economic situations etc etc. and everytime you watch tv, you’re bound to see some sad documentary showing how tough life can be for some people – Princess D was telling us how a family was so badly affected by the hikes, and couldn’t even afford cooking oil, that they had to collect chicken skins (from the chicken sellers, I guess), and then heat them in the wok until it produces oil which they then use as substitute for normal cooking oil! Wtf, right? While the dumbass politicians are on tv BS-ing and telling the nation that our people here is fine and cukup makan, these poor people had to live on chicken oil? (Btw, this doesn't mean I am a supporter of that alleged ButtMan, ok. Neither am I a fan of the dumb dumb they call the pm.) I don’t know the “nutritional” value to be found in chicken skin oil, but I Really doubt that it is a healthy thing to consume over a long period of time. Sigh.

Anyways, back to the disillusionment (phew… big, tongue twisting word :p), you see, the mall at the bottom of the towers is famous for being quite a posh place to shop, and I get to see lots of people walking around with huge designer bags carrying their new designer purchases and LV is almost always filled with people. And then there are the eateries. Ok, the food courts are quite affordable with proper meals starting from 5 bucks, but there are also lots of posh restaurants and cafes, which are always full. Economy bad? Hanging around here, I really can’t tell. Obviously loads and loads of people are either very not affected or still just oblivious… and so lucky to be able to afford being oblivious. Sigh.

Anyways… will be going for Journey to the centre of the earth in 3D! 17bucks worth of ticket. Definitely a luxury item for me, especially after spending 10bucks on kebab for lunch earlier… for those reading this who are much, much richer than me and think this is peanuts… what can I say, good for u lor…
