Who wants to be a Felda settler when he grows up?

Dear Hubby has always had a profound interest in politics...especially in Malaysia. Whenever there's news out in the newspapers, he comes home and rambles about it continuously. I've always been a neutral bystander when it come to politics, as long as peace remains. So what if preferential treatments are given to certain ethnic groups of people (known as the Bumiputeras)? What doesn't kill the non-bumi(s) will only make them stronger, right?

The recent one was on Felda settlers. Many people thinks that to give out the long overdue compensation of RM50,000 right before the general election is the government's ultimate trump card to win. And I'm talking about RM50,000 for each settlers, with a total number of 363 settlers to receive the above said money.

Feeling sort of disgruntled, Dear Hubby had this posted on his FB:

(30 years ago.....)
Teacher: "What do you want to be when you grow up? Lawyer? Doctor?
Dear Hubby: "A Felda settler."

Hah! Now that's funny!
