RANDTS will last a thousand years.

- Albert

I wonder whose fault it is or could she have willingly done it?

One thing about the elders, they never seem to get enough care especially when their children are busy working. That is how most old people end up in the old folks home or so. I took this picture when I was paying a visit to my brother.

She collects boxes left by the supermarket and my guess is that she sells it to earn a living. As much as I wish that I could help her, I couldn't. This gives me a really sad feeling. They could have lead a better life. Did she have to do this? What about her children? I just feel that this is not fair, not only to this lady but to other old people who suffer the same fate. We might not read them in the newspapers but this doesn't mean it isn't happening.

(Sorry guys, I got a little emo...)

    One way to look at it is this...

    How sure are you that she has kids?
    Maybe she is a spinster, and have been alone since a long,long time ago?

    And if that is so, the only way to help these women/men is through communism, or welfare.

    Just my 2 cents, I used to feel bad for them, but then I realized that they have no choice, or never had the chance, or they never take the chance they had, so in those cases, there is nothing much that I can do =)

    The new underclass?

    This picture leaves much to be desired. Indeed, in a society like this in Malaysia, it is indeed sad to see senior citizens still struggling just to make ends meet.

    Sometimes, it makes you think about why Hindraf is making all this fuss. Somehow, their actions justify their needs.

    Send it to The Star and see if it gets highlighted.

    By the way, what about the Pulitzer Prize? Haha, dare for it?
