1803 - Lewis & Clark (not to be confused with Lois & Clark) started their famous expedition to the Pacific Coast.
1888 - 1st known victim of Jack the Ripper was murdered.
1957 - Malaysia gained its independence from the United Kingdom, though until today our spirit & mindset were still not fully free.
1997 - Princess Diana & Dodi Al-Fayed were killed in a car accident & mourned by many, including Malaysians who got nothing to do with her (We called ourselves independence?).
Politicians & academicians still debate whether we are fully independence from the westerners occupation, personally I think in reality, we can't get everything we want,
the most important thing is that we should never stop improving ourselves,
never get bitten by the same snake twice,
however we got another bite from the same old snake again today
Price of RON 95 at RM1.80 from Tuesday (Update)
By NURBAITI HAMDAN and TEH ENG HOCK
KUALA LUMPUR: The newly introduced RON 95 fuel is now priced at RM1.80 - five sen higher than the previous RM1.75.
Meanwhile, RON 97 is upgraded as a premium product and has gone up to RM2.05 from RM1.80.
Domestic Trade, Cooperative and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the new prices were decided based on the current method of Automatic Pricing Mechanism (APM).
“Although the price is now 5 sen higher, the Government is still subsidising 33.81 sen per litre (of RON 95) which is equivalent to RM304mil monthly,” he told reporters after the launch of Primax 95 by Petronas here on Monday.
