5th November 2018 – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
After the recent electoral results in May, I am puzzled when trying to understand the possible outcome of international political scenarios, considering the immediate changes that occurred in the aftermath.
Today when I woke up, I realised that I was at home and not outside in the forest. That is not unusual.
In my dream, I had a nice nap on a hammock at a beautiful tropical beach, and it had to be a “super white beach,” not some average beaches I can easily find in peninsula Malaysia! Coconut trees surrounded the pondok (hut) where I stayed, and beyond the secluded beach zone, there was a vast tropical forest with beautiful humming voices of birds and insects.
It is quite amusing to me that the most popular topic in social media today is “oil price hike“. Almost every Whatsapp group that I am part of talks about the RON97 gasoline MYR0.07 price increase! The ups and downs of fuel prices in Malaysia should not surprise us because many elements contribute to the volatility, not only in my home country but also globally. In short, the upward trend is not so surprising because of the geopolitical events around us.
