Food Stamps in Malaysia!

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I never thought that food stamps will also be introduced in Malaysia. I was just on Guam last week and I saw how the locals enjoy the benefit. As a newly industrialized country, maybe Malaysia really need to introduce such.

What is the proposed food stamp then? The household earning less than RM3,000 or 41,00PHP / 947USD gets the benefit that the government is mulling over.

Now allow me to compare the cost of living in Malaysia and the Philippines. The Philippines by majority is far less lower than in Malaysia – consumer prices, consumer prices including rent, rent prices, restaurant prices and even groceries.

Therefore, it would be wise to go back to my homeland since I do not even need food stamp to buy “pansit habhab” (the local Chinese noodle delicacy in Luzon)! h

Laws should be like clothes. They should be made to fit the people they are meant to serve….

Even if you do learn to speak correct English, whom are you going to speak it to….
