I find lentils completely incomprehensible.

We received news that my SIL has decided to call off her engagement over the weekend. DH was summoned to his aunt's house for a family meeting. No wonder DH had a hard time contacting her these past few weeks -- she was troubled.

I was told that the ex-fiance strangled her when they had a disagreement a couple of weeks ago. And it happened in KLCC. Hmmm...

Anyhow, she made the right choice. Bila dah kahwin nanti, it's not easy to get out of it. Trust me :p

Lets talk about Budget 2010. I couldn't be bothered to read the whole thing, just looking for snippets here and there (my Google search: Budget 2010 simplified. Lol!).

These two points caught my eye:
  • PTPTN loans will be converted to scholarships for students who graduate with first class honours degree or equivalent, beginning 2010.
  • Netbook package, including free broadband service, to university students for RM50 per month for 2 years.
Can someone define 'students' and 'university students' for me, please. It's too vauge. In other words, mak included in the definition ke nok? Hehe.

And this makes me happy... a bit -- Individual taxpayers to be given tax relief on broadband subscription fee up to RM500 a year from 2010 to 2012.

Also, the Government will issue 1Malaysia Sukuk totalling RM3 billion. If it is assessible enough (read: cheap), I'd like to take it up.

What else?

Nong: RM50 saja what. Unless ada 10 kad la baru rasa rugi kot. Lol. Macam kena double taxed gitu.

Mum2h: Betul3x. The ex ada propose they tangguh kan the wedding instead, tapi the SIL adamant nak putus. Iyelah, belum pape dah tunjung gengster kan. Parents & abang2 dia, jentik pun tak penah, pandai pulak orang lain nak pukul2.
