I wonder how much MPSP spent to print a card for 50 sen parking?

We went to Kampung Benggali this morning to eat Ipoh Hor Fun this morning.
And over there, their parking system is different from Penang. Over here in Penang, we have these parking boys who give you a tiny chit and collect 30-50 sen every 30 minutes or they use the coin meter system.
But over in MPSP area, they use this canggih scratch and win style.
Father teaching son – This month is #4, so you scratch #4
Today is number 14, so you scratch it.
And the time now is 10 am, you scratch 10.
Now, our Penang Chief Minister wonders how the money terbang.
The findings of the private auditor into the financial status of Seberang Prai Municipal Council (MPSP), whose reserves fell from RM229mil in 2000 to just RM25.6mil at the end of 2007, will be made public.
Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said the public had the right to know how the council’s reserves had come down.
“If the municipal council had built a lapangan terbang (airport) here, perhaps we can understand.
“But, there is no lapangan terbang and yet the money could terbang (fly),” he said.
Come on, the card looks mighty expensive to me. We got to buy the card through a third party and at the end of the day, how much do MPSP earns?
Anyway, I find my little boy’s hand so awfully chubby and cute so that’s why I took the pictures.
