When Rosmah said to the children of PERMATA, "Let them eat croissants", I couldn't help but to recall what Marie Antoinette said to the poor people of France, "Let them eat cakes" which was made in the most callous and ignorant manner. Since cakes were enriched with butter and eggs, as opposed to ordinary bread, the quote supposedly would reflect the princess's obliviousness to the condition of the people. The end result, which may not have come directly from this quote, but rather from the decadent and arrogant lifestyle of the French artistocracy during that turbulent period, was this.
So Rosmah has decided to put away her diamond rings for rubber gloves, dorn on a pair of 'Pua Chu Kang' yellow industrial boots to help the flood victims in the East Coast. The whole picture does look ominous that we may soon be exporting maids to other countries.
How long did the whole charade last, and why the need for such a publicity with the press present? If she was truly sincere in helping, one piece of her diamond or jewellery [courtesy of Deepak] would have sufficed in lessening the hardships of the people
Two Irishmen were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A blonde walks by and asked them what they were doing Paddy replied, 'We're supposed to be finding the height of this Flagpole, but we don't have a ladder.' The blonde took out an adjustable spanner from her bag, loosened a few Bolts and laid the flagpole down. She got a tape measure out of her pocket, took a few measurements, and Announced that it was 18 feet 6 inches. Then, she walked off. Mick said to Paddy, 'Isn't that just like a blonde! We need the bloody height, and she gives us the length. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
