No more nasi lemak and teh manis?

It was a standard routine each time SP had to attend one of those SPNB (Syarikat Perumahan Negara Berhad) meetings.

There on the table would be plates of kuih-muih and cups of teh manis. If the meeting is held in the morning, everyone gets to enjoy nasi lemak complete with fried chicken and sotong sambal. SP makes no apologies for the fact that he thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary delicious nasi lemak, although the tea is a tad too sweet for his taste!

Recently, he read in the MSM that Mr Lim Guan Eng, the new DAP Chief Minister of Penang has done away with such frivolousness in his administration. He directed that only mineral water be served during meetings.

And today, the MB of Negeri Sembilan announced a series of cost-cutting measures to save some money. And he is taking the cue from the Penang CM on using existing cars for Exco members.

Now SP is wondering whether he will still get his nasi lemak at the next SPNB meeting to be held soon.

By the way, is there an Auditor-General's report on the operation of SPNB? The leakages would astound you, and I don't mean the amount being spent on nasi lemak, kuih and teh manis.

To be fair to BN, it's good they're finally changing their ways. The thing this, I hope it's genuine repentance for change and not for show just becos the Opposition led garmen is doing it.

ANyway, like you say, what's a little cutting corner on makan-makan compared to the other frivolous spending that go uncheck?

Good move. It will also reduce diabetes while saving money for the State.
