She is 10 years old. They said she is a bit screwed. Otak tak center. If I am 10 and my mom has two husbands and 7 kids and some of whom may not be my own siblings, I would be screwed too.
Recka’s stepfather Ahmad Omar, 49, said he and his wife would be handing over the little girl to the Welfare Department as they found it hard to control her.
“I love her a lot but my wife and I cannot be keeping an eye on her all the time as we need to work in order to feed our family of six other children.
“I want what is best for her as I cannot be locking her up in the house. I feel that the state would be able to take better care of her,” he said when met at his Kampong Kolam home.
Now, the step father said she is too screwed and is better off in the welfare home. Ya, right…..pass the buck, give her to charity.
But that’s not the screwer one. The screwed one is the media. They sensationalise her disappearance because of what happen to Nurin. They create huge headlines, without finding out the facts. Now, they realised they have been taken for a ride by a 10 years old girl. She ran away from home because probably home sucks. Or maybe she watched too many Bollywood stories.
Why I take offence with the media? Because of what they portrayed. That we were taken for a ride.
Ten-year-old Recka almost had the whole country fooled when she made up a story about being abducted from a VCD shop in Market Street by a woman last week.
How about some better news like how kids are often neglected and that’s the cause of the problems we face in this society. And why are kids neglected? Because the parents need to scrimp for money. And why do they need to do that? Because our nation is developing too fast with too many ambitious projects that benefits a few and cause the masses to suffer. That’s why. Petrol naik, toll, naik, tepung naik, roti naik, beras naik, gaji tak naik. That’s why lor.
