You have no idea what the poor go through

Very often we read of ministers and other politicians giving the people advice on how they can save money and how they can maximise their earnings.

It's very easy to talk when you have never been there before and especially when you are born with a silver spoon in your mouth.

It greatly upsets and angers me when I read this so called advice coming from people who have never gone through what some people are going through.

Who are they to advice us about how to save money when some of us barely even have enough money to put a meal on our table.

Do they know the situation out here? It is so bad and terribly difficult to earn a decent income these days.

Malaysia is becoming like India - where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

Many times I have thought of resorting to a life of crime to give my family a better life, but due to my strong strong religious beliefs, I have held back.

For those of you sitting up there, don't talk rubbish.

You have no idea the hell the average man on the street goes through merely to have a single meal a day.
