For some reason I thought this was hilarious

Mayflower (left), a grey Shetland pony, grazes near salt marshes by the River Test, near Southampton, England. Fire crews have been called in four times to rescue a pony apparently stuck in the river's mud, only to find that the animal simply has short legs. Mayflower, who has been nicknamed Shorty, could appear to be trapped because it was half the height of other nearby ponies.

On EPF

Saving for retirement.

Following today's new annoucement on the automatic reduction of our EPF contributions from 11% to 8% -further proving the incompetence of our current govt- we shall all have increase it back up to 11% on our own again.

To all the readers of this blog, please do yourself a favour and increase your EPF contribution back up to 11%, cos honestly, 11% is really not enough too.

Apparently you can download the form from the EPF website, www.kwsp.gov.my but at the time of writing the website can't be loaded (surprise surprise).
