Fuel prices have dropped tremendously and there's a recession going on, so what's their excuse for raising electric rates ?

I suspect that the money is used to bail out failed companies ?

And with that probably comes another round of hawker food price hike?

C'mon folks. I've already said before MALAYSIA is NOT a cheap place anymore. Living costs are up, up and will forever go up!....PERIOD!
You just have to earn more to sustain your lifestyle..NO 2 ways about it, however you can argue. 3-4UK pounds for a dressed chicken, RM12-15 for the same chicken. Don't convert!. Who're the loosers?.

Look, our Malaysian Ringgit have depreciated hugely against even our nearest neighbor. We've been destined to be poorer since more than a decade ago. Malaysia is highly dependant on imports, the price of goods amazingly still go up regardless the currency appreciate or depreciate. We're doomed to tolerate all this and forced to earn more or spend within one's means. I'm sorry but change of gamen does not guarantee a better income for most. Perhaps many have to figure out and understand the content factor thats quite apparent among rural folks where life goes on quite happily despite inflation issues and scare. They can live by having meat dishes once or twice a week, can you do the same? Some GLC is appointed to govvern rice imports and control rice distribution in this country, NO if's, NO but's. Look at the prices?...very cheap ah?..ITS ALL GONE UP RECENTLY!

Put it this way lah.. there's been numerous increase in costs shafted down everyone's throats time and again. You've to expect and accept it more or less for may obvious reasons I can't point out bluntly.
You may have to reduce air-conditioning by some degree, or remove it altogether. We're not going to have temperate climate either. Perhaps we should urge air con manufacturers to come out with some invention that can be powered from solar, and affordable for everyone. OTH, I can tell you if anyone can come out with a RM1,000 total solution to reduce your electric bill by 30% at least, I only fear there may be dark forces to shut you down in no time. IT CAN HAPPEN!..
