Former PM and Drinking Too Much Cola

Two news articles in the Star caught my attention today:

Five-day week plus Cola for civil servants

Quality time: The Government has agreed in principle to a five-day week and a Cost of Living Allowance (Cola) for the country's one million civil servants. Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said a five-day week would benefit civil servants as they could spend more time with their families.

At first I thought the government is reducing the work day week AND giving civil servants a fizzy drink every week. Oh yeah, sure, like that’s gonna placate Cuepacs. Anyways I found out it was actually Cost of Living Allowances (NOT Coca-Cola).

While some private corporations is pushing their staff to work longer hours (at least 10 hours a day) and longer weeks (no less than 6 days), this must be great news for the civil servants.

But don’t you agree quality of work and service in the 5 working days is also subject to improvement as the quality of life in the 2 days of weekend?

The other important newsfeed of the day:

Dr M: My legacy will speak for me

KUALA LUMPUR: The most important thing in the fight against corruption is to ensure that a culture of viewing the practice as normal and acceptable does not develop, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said.
“For me, this is a question of inculcating noble values, not about catching people,” the former prime minister said.
He said this at a press conference at his residence here in response to a column in the Sunday Star by The Star’s deputy group chief editor II Datuk Wong Chun Wai.

Ah, well, there’s gonna be fireworks.

  • That guy is being unnecessarily defensive, which speaks of his sense of guilt. Don't we already notice he's shooting his mouth rather frequently these last few weeks?
