Two days ago, I read on Jakarta Post that 21 poor people were killed in a stampede in Jawa Timur, when a philanthropist was giving alms this Ramadan. The poor rushed for what is about RM 15, which there I should think can feed their family for at least 3 days. Dying for a mere RM 15. There are very desperate people out there, really. Desperately poor.
Two days ago, I was told that someone in my neighbourhood paid Rm 1.5 million for his Morrocan inspired door, for his new Tudor style house, which sticks out like a sore thumb in our neighbourhood. Quite ‘obit’ I would say. So rich with nothing better to do with the money. Splurged it on a… errm.. a door?
The RM 1.5 million door can feed at least 100,000 poor and starving Indonesians, you think?
