Sigh... that is Malaysia. And never look beyond the clutches of color and that's why they will always be blindness in their mind.

Anyway, it doesnt really matter, cause KGNS's is at risk of the land not being renewed. They may lose the prized land they are current on.

GF, the racial quota has always been in place.

For you and I, it's beneficial. It means that there are less spots for Chinese so when we do sell our memberships, they are typically more expensive given the limited slots.

See below abstract from Wikipedia.

"Wawasan 2020 or Vision 2020 is a Malaysian ideal introduced by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mahathir bin Mohamad during the tabling of the Sixth Malaysia Plan in 1991. The vision calls for the nation to achieve a self-sufficient industrialized nation by the year 2020, encompasses all aspects of life, from economic prosperity, social well-being, educational worldclass, political stability, as well as psychological balance. In order to achieve Vision 2020, Mahathir lamented that the nation required an annual growth of 7% (in real terms) over the thirty-year periods (1990–2020), so that the economy would be eightfold stronger than its 1990 GDP of RM115 billion."

If that is the objective, then I must say this Vision 2020 may not succeed. Malaysia has now 8 years to achieve this vision.

Well, mahathir may turn around and quote the famous words of lingam.... it sound like me, looks like me but not me...

W2020 is like a coined term, say for nothing and lack of substance. Like the 1MY thingy, ....everywhere its 1MY this, 1MY that and the next thing the race and region issue pops up because someone or some idiot wants political mileage.

How to have 1MY when you still practice article like the above?

The way I see is not KGNS fault Wah...
It's the broker's price list based on demand & supply, mkt forces.
Like some1 pointed out, just like our Hdb prices.

Why TM high cost when new looks nice, 3 months down the road new model out, so old model no value!
Titliest maintain its price b'cos they don't have new model out so rapidly like TM..

Callaway is Malay word for Kalahway meaning lose out!
