    Diesel shortage again at Shell?

    These days, I need to drive from one Shell station to another in search of diesel.
    Are we facing shortage again?
    Haven't read about it anywhere in the news...

    Brace yourself for a price increase.... I just saw my mamak shop fella having some young IT fellas twiddling with his cash registers.... I casually asked him and he says he is programming a 6% sales tax expected soon.... so the RM1.40 roti telor will soon be RM1.484 or round up to RM1.50.....

    well for palm cooking oil, we have been mass export crude oil overseas. the refinaries in malaysia are running in the red and they have no incentive to refine it. My as well close for maintanence.

    Hence, shortage of cooking oil in malaysia even if we are the 2nd largest producer of Palm oil.

    I attribute this to too much fried food both being sold and or home consumption. Consuming too much in this era. Everywhere see fried foods...just everywhere.
    I reckon many also don't realise the health risks consuming too much of fried foods..till something happen. But then, people are people...may draw flak if touch on this.

    The biggest culprits are hawkers. They fry and fry till the cows come home! They know anything fried will be hot sellers and they are not wrong (usually). Don't take my word for it. Go to a kopitiam. Observe the char hor fun stall and the fishball soup stall. See who is doing roaring business and who ain't.

    Anyhow, I'm just sad such things or such culture is apparent. Won't say anymore nor advise people what to eat or not to eat. Thats THEIR PROBLEM! I'll look after the health interests within my own family and me and avoid buying food that isn't good for me. Like someone say, Live and let live.
