As any bored, tired, lazy, arm-chair-traveller pensioner who spend his tiwlight years watching the sun rises & sets, I set about looking at new bizz opportunity to inject some action into my hoohum life before i kick my bucket...so there I go looking left, rigth, centre, up & down for that elusive eldorado. Heck! I even listened to the recent umno speeches for possible hints/leads to make my million$.
And last month, in the middle of a hazy evening (watching the sun set of course), I saw a sign ...I did my research and indeed it could be a goldmine. My Eldorado!
Gleefully, I went to the relevant authorities to apply the necessary lesen ini, lesen itu (and what have you) and guess what? This takes the cake! the clerk/officer/pegawai kanan pen-pusher, 'nasihat' me that my goldmine of a business would need a 30% bumiputra equity
SO I said, what will happen if I cannot find a willing bumi partner to put in his cold hard cash equivalent to the 1/3 share? His answer? 'Macam tu, tak jalan lah"
Any bumi here with Rm30,000 CASH interested to be my operating partner (not sleeping partner as I will be THE sleeping/snoozing/dozing partner)
Oh, did I mention somewhere that my Eldorado is a nitch-kindergarten?Seriously!
Yang Amat Blur Sotong lato-tupai-sipping-martini (stirred not shaken)-watching-the-sunset-in-Krabi, Ko Lanta and some say Batam too.
p/s Any new bizz I can do without having to find a 30% bumi partner? what is happening to free enterprise driven by pensioner entrepreneur? how leh???? Maybe a bakuteh shop is a good start...no?
