Why I didn’t watch the Budget speech

Hi. My name is Kensi. I’m from Kampung Selampit, Lundu.

I didn’t watch “Pembentangan Bajet 2017” yesterday. Because I know there is little for East Malaysia.

I’m 27 years old, almost 28. My village is separated by a river. To get to my house, we have to use a canoe. When the monsoon season comes, there is a flood. It is a big trouble for the villagers.

As a Sarawakian, I feel sorry for the people of East Malaysia. What to do, some people are scared to change. Some compel themselves. I attached a photo of our lovely river.
