These are the pix I took of the EPF Service Kiosk which is supposed to advise depositors what balances they have current with the Employees Provident Fund, where all the working Malaysians life savings are vested and invested.
As at 31.12.2007 EPF had RM318 bil in Total Assets which gave back RM17.1 bil to workers (contributors) and some minority interests. Some 20 months ago, workers in India got back some 15% instead of the some meagre under 5 % Malaysians got. At this rate, I wish I was an Indian national than being Malaysian! You wonder why the BN government has always been telling everyone, retirees don't save enough. If a comparison is made with that of India, you'd think that the BN Government stole half of Malaysians' savings and blame it on the old people. If you debate this too much, they say you "menderhaka" ! Cute, huh?
And if any pictures of the EPF Service Kiosk at a local bank in Kuching is any help, it could be telling us MORE than what meets the eye!
Well, LESS, actually!
