malaysiakini should ask "Who is PAYING for those 49MPs?"

That is the RM500,000 question that should be asked in the malaysiakini article 49 BN MPs off to Taiwan beginning today .

I wonder what one can learn in 10 days when the growing of crops usually takes a few months for a complete cycle from planting to harvesting.

Now if we deduct a few days of golfing so as to break the monotony of looking at food processing plants, we could have about 5 days when actual studying can be done.

But wait a minute - we do have some rice farmers in Perak who were struggling to keep their land even though they were the most productive farmers in Malaysia.

Instead of spending so much monies on a junket, those MPs should have been provided lap-tops with Internet access and ask them to do research instead. What next? Special trips to learn proper debate skills?

Oiyah some of you will protest - "How to enjoy golf like that?
No chance lah to get a hole in one!"

And not all of them play golf.
