Just came back from my insurance agent's office. Not the life assurance one, but the general insurance. It's for my car insurance. I drive an 8-year old junk which can pass easily for a red Proton Saga taxi. And I have been buying third-party insurance just to get the road tax each year. Now no company wants to sell you third-party. If you are lucky, you may find one which will sell you, but with a "loaded" PA insurance! You end up still having to pay more. Mine was rejected even with the PA. I wonder whether there is any law that prevents them from this despicable practice. I have no choice but to pay for the comprehensive. So the amount JUMPED from RM 73.79 to RM228.50.
If you are still working then it's OK. You can go rob others to neutralize the effects of "inflation." Rob others? Just kidding. I mean with your salary increment or hiking your prices, you will be a happy person again, come what may. Or if you are a very rich person, then what is RM228.50, not even peanuts, PEANUT SKIN!
The woes of a retired person!
