Thanks For The Money!

A Little Goes A Long Way.....

The Prime Minister has made a wise move in announcing that all government servants will be getting RM500.00 each for the coming Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Some many groan in despair and express their dissatisfaction that this amount of money is too little and would make any kind of significant difference to their already ballooning household expenditure.

I, on the other hand, feel that money given by the government or anyone else for that matter, other than our salary, is a welcome addition to our monthly income, even though it comes once in a blue moon. It helps to ease the extra expenditure that will occur during this festival. And being the bread winner for my family, I say that this little bit goes a long way.
Let us not complain about the sum that is given to us. Let us express our appreciation by striving to work harder and make a positive contribution to our service because if this small sum were not given to us, our budget for this festival would be a little tighter!


  1. thanks to the government for their understanding.
    at least it helps my parents to celebrate hari raya and i will surely get my all the government servants, appreciate this 'durian runtuh' and celebrate the festive with greatfulness

  2. shafik;
    Getting this 'durian runtuh' certainly means that many of us can afford to be a bit generous this coming festival. Like you, I know my children will be looking forward to their 'Ang Pow' too. Happy fasting and Selamat Hari Raya to you and your family :)
