    I wonder any Fung Shui lou forecasted the drastic currency drop for this year? when ushering the new year?. Personally I refuse to believe anything they claim or foretell.
    HaHa....'Fung Shui lou' only gives out positive predictions these days.....nobody wan't to hear negative news anymore

    No need to have seen a Fortune Teller to be aware of what '2015 possibly might have been like'.......

    ALL THE WARNINGS TO GET PREPARED WERE RIGHT HERE AT THE USJ FORUM

    In early December 2014, Henry T posted....

    My buddy who live in ss14 is one of them. The price of diabetes medicine and blood sugar monitoring kits are getting higher and higher. For example, the lancet and the test strip used for the glucometer has been up 15% just a few months only !! I am not surprised all these medical costs are higher than his meals expenses...
    Tell your friend such situation never happen if he is in kangaroo land.....this sort of common obats only cost AUD$5.00 for those low income people or retirees


    Even if that obat is $200.00 or more, you only pay $5.00

    Just apply for a Health Care Card or a Concession Card

    Yup..but whole of Malaysia ain't subscribing to usj.com.my to read more plausible predictions. Rest of Malaysia believe newspapers, TV and fung shui lou!
    But then..knowing Malaysia too well..who the heck take warnings seriously?...they often don't bother and its business as usual..till something really bad happen..always like this wan!..from accidents to traffic offences..

    When China devalued the Yuan 2 weeks ago, one of the banks that took the biggest blow was HSBC - being an unofficial "foreign bank" for trades done by Beijing overseas... it lost lots of money adding up to their 2015 loss of near USD1 trillion.... this article is about 2 weeks old from the time when China took a gamble (knowingly or unknowingly about the impact it might cause to world equity market).... read it and get to know what Kuma has been warning us is not a figment of his imagination.... IT IS BLOODY REAL! The system failure might be the red herring here.... the real reason might actually have been the cash flow problem that arose from the "devaluation of the Yuan"... you decide which... sleep tight...

    One write-up says the rate hike from the Federal Reserve in this month is real, another article says it is not going to happen this month...

    One write-up says the “meltdown” is imminent and is gonna happen “within a few months”, another write-up says the lowest crude price in the past 2 decades and the lifting of economic sanction on Iran will ensure this key livelihood of economy remains abundantly affordable and thus help to soften the impact of slowdown..

    Which one is righr ?? Really don’t know which one to believe, right ?

    But one thing is real for sure, the terrible haze that blanketing the sky in this land now is caused by the irresponsible bunch of fuxxng Pak across the straits. Just take a look at the sky and outdoor from your windows, the haze is so bad today.

    Shame on you, Pak !!

    Some analysts talk cxxx and sing song, pure bullsxxx.

    The fxxxing Paks are more worried about their pockets. Initially, they accepted offer from Singapore army to put off the fire but now they said they can manage. We are prepare to go in to wipe out the hot spots completely but I guess they have something to hide. Axxhxxx!

    This article from my favorite columnist can shed some light about the mentality of fuxxing Pak .. http://www.mysinchew.com/node/111235

    " The media contingent had an itinerary to visit vice president Jusuf Kalla before leaving Jakarta. Meeting us at the lobby of the vice president's office, Jusuf Kalla was greeted with questions on regional economy and politics. Not going to miss such an opportunity, I threw out my question on haze. "Pak Jusuf, I am Tay from Malaysia. It is indeed an encouraging phenomenon to see the relationship between Indonesia and Malaysia grow steadily these two years. However, where haze i concerned, the situation seems to be largely unchanged. "Does the Indonesian government have more proactive measures to tackle this perennial issue?" The way Pak Jusuf replied to my question subsequently took me by surprise. - "Every year Indonesia gives you 11 months of good air and only one month of haze. Why bother so much about this and keep pointing your finger at us?". I admit I was rather stunned by his reply. He didn't sound apologetic or that he was joking. As a guest, I tried not to be offensive. "I just like to know whether Indonesia has taken some steps to improve the situation and what Malaysia can do to coordinate." He tamed his tone and talked about how they had worked together to put out the forest fires. The question marks still hang above me even after we stepped out of the VP's office. Based on his reasoning, Malaysia and Singapore should be grateful that they have provided us 11 months of clean air every year, and should therefore accept with submission the one month of smog. I simply found myself unable to accept such a logic "

    We have an oil terminal in the south and a staff was dispatched there 2 days ago due to urgent operational issues. He drove from here on Friday evening. Due to poor visibility, I asked someone to call him yesterday to take a flight back to KL and leave his vehicle at the terminal. Company will rent a vehicle for him for the time being in Klang valley.

    Hi just called me that he finally touched down at Subang airport. The Malindo Air OD1220 was scheduled to arrive Subang at 3.20pm from Senai, Johor. The plane was circulating in the air for 35 minutes due to poor visibility caused by the thick haze !! The captain announced via the inflight PAsystem that if the visibility is still bad, the plane has to fly to Penang to refuel as the visibility in Penang is reportedly better than Subang !!

    Wtf....

    During recent Singapore National Day rally speech, PM Lee mentioned about this incident. Since then, we always jokingly tell those who complain about the haze from Indonesia to be grateful since Indonesia has given us 11 months of fresh air...What to do?! They are the Taiko in this region.

    Its Monday.....Happy Monday!.......I wish people will stop sending out those 'Happy Friday' stuff on WhatsApp ......I've yet to see a 'Happy Monday'

    So this is the week.....Will the FED raise rates, or push it off and print?


    "By Thursday [Friday here], the market will have the answer to its favorite guessing game........

    Will the Federal Reserve pull the trigger on the first interest-rate hike since 2006?

    But clarity on the Fedís stance will do little to shield the stock market from further volatility."

    These sort of “kacang lupakan kulit” folks had completely forgotten who were the ones who rushed to their land offering aids, money and resources when this nusantara was struck by catastrophic tsunami and earthquake...

    Well, since this archipelago republic is practically floating on giant rings of hell fire, I believe nature sometimes work in a miraculous way..
