The international well-known democracy-liar Suu Kyi abused her power again to win the vote of farmers by declaring to purchase 20 billions kyat worth of just-harvested paddy and also to pay 10% more above the market price on all the paddy purchase.

Currently the price of 100 baskets of the just-harvested paddy is 470,000 kyat but the Suu Kyi government abused the government fund to set the price to 520,000 kyat, 10% above the market price, this is clearly a manipulation of the market price for which Suu Kyi should be jailed for the power abuse and the treason on all people.

Rice price has been excessively raised many time under the leadership of the culprit Suu Kyi, consequently people have been suffering terrible inflation unlike never seen before.

"Out of control epidemic" are located at only 2 places in US and India.

Myanmar is unfortunately bordering to the most deadly India.

So Myanmar has to immediately not only completely close all the border gates to India and impose death penalty for officers allowing illegal trading at the borders but also to completely close all unofficial shortcut routes leading between Myanmar and India just like what the Thailand has been completely attempting to close all illegal entry loopholes between Thailand and Myanmar.

All flights from US and India should also be banned landing in Myanmar unconditionally in order to prevent the coronavirus from further spreading in Myanmar.

All imports from India, especially the food, etc has to be diagnosed to see if any stain of coronavirus were included in food or not.

Or else all the current efforts to contain the virus locally might be useless and unpractical for Myanmar without pinpointing the source of the real spreader immediately and then the situation even might be out of control just like India in the next few months without eliminating the culprit spreader.

Transportation department announced to cease its whole operation and service temporarily starting from 14th this month.

It's not necessary to cease its service and operation but just need to follow the strict procedure of coronavirus prevention.

"No work, no pay" practical policy must to be applied to the government workers too as demanded recently by the chairman of the garment employer association.

Or else is it fair for the tax payers to feed the freeloading government workers like the lazy, useless minister and his accomplices of the transportation department.

If they insisted to not work using the excuse of the coronavirus, they should all be fired immediately and no worry there are millions and millions of qualified people who would work even for free as long as food is provided because the millions are starving due to poverty and no job.

The transportation department is an essential service that people need for taking the test of driving license and so on so the transportation department must never be closed even for temporarily until the democracy government exists no more.

The monthly salary of all government workers higher than or equal to 2 millions kyat must be reduced by at least half immediately to reflect the current very bad situation.

The president should be responsible for the rampant crimes committed by the 20,000 prisoners he released few months ago on his reckless presidential pardon during the coronavirus epidemic without considering the consequences of his reckless release of criminals. No wonder the president is the enabler of all rampant crimes all people are suffering unnecessarily now.

No one in Myanmar history is as dishonest as Aung San Suu Kyi.

Over 50% of electricity in Myanmar is produced with hydropower plants and it just costs 12 kyat per unit of electricity but the greatest thief Suu Kyi skyrocketed the electricity price from 50 kyat per unit to 125 kyat per unit few months ago, raising at least whopping 150%, the greatest thievery in Myanmar history under the greatest thief Suu Kyi unlike never seen before.
Myanmar is a gas producer country but the gas price in Myanmar is also much much more expensive than all the surrounding countries surprisingly.
Now both electricity price and gas price in Myanmar are very expensive now, even much more than the world's second largest economy China so how Myanmar people can afford to cook a meal at home or is the thief Suu Kyi encouraging and forcing the Myanmar people to end their life out of enormous expense pressure by inhumanely raising the electricity price by at least 150%?

Yangon restaurant food prices are getting much more expensive and more expensive than Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, etc now under the leadership of the rubbish Suu Kyi administration.
It's indeed an endless woe and tragedy to all the Myanmar people whose minimum income is much less than aforementioned richer countries above by at least 200% so it's not absolutely unfair for all the Myanmar people to spend more money for restaurant food in Yangon comparing to the aforementioned richer countries above.
Thanks to the rubbish government led by the wicked Suu Kyi who allows the enormous ripoff accross the Yangon restaurants without punishment for rip-off price unlike the Malaysia where the restaurant food and drink price are monitored and controlled around the clock for the interest of its people, etc

The income tax which is never practised in all other foreign countries because it's a fraud and the purpose of income tax is to add an additional unfair tax on top of other already existed taxes upon spending money with no tax collection history for purchase of car, land, property, etc.
Instead of abolishing the unfair income tax upon becoming the leader in Myanmar, the thief Suu Kyi simply skyrocketed the unfair income tax instead from the original 3% to 15%, raising whopping 400%.

The duty of importing a car in US is as much as free but the combined duty and complicated tax for importing a car in Myanmar is as high as 150% of the value of the car,
Even paying 150% for the combined duty and complicated tax for importing a car is not enough as there is no license issued for Yangon and the Yangon license can be purchased separately for a whopping 10,000 US dollar
Thanks to the most wicked Suu Kyi for skyrocketing the import duty and tax as well as banning of issuing Yangon license for all imported cars and shamelessly selling the Yangon car license as a fraudster

Suu Kyi is abhorred internationally for well cheating of the whole world as the true democracy icon for over 2 decades unlike never seen before in history so she is no longer welcomed even in her husband's country called English and all of her many international democracy awards have been stripped completely throughout the world except the Nobel award which wasn't stripped because Nobel award has no strip policy but no one in the Nobel committee endorse her anymore so it would be the most shameless for Suu Kyi to abuse and associate the Nobel award to her name because she is nothing more than a liar and not worthy of the Nobel reward. Myanmar is so unlucky to have the most fake democracy pretender like Suu Kyi.

And even until now Suu Kyi doesn't even spare Myanmar, the last country where people still accept her but she still doesn't repent and commits all kind of evils upon all innocent Myanmar people especially upon the poor people so the day all Myanmar people realizes of the evil natures of Suu Kyi and then Suu Kyi might have no escape but to live the rest of her life as a disgraceful fugitive or a prisoner.

Yangon government under the corrupt chief minister has turned Yangon into a scammer heaven now where endless ripoff spreading across the city to the extent that Thailand, Malaysia, India, etc are cheaper than the rip-off Yangon now.

Not only expensive but crimes are also rampant too and out of control in Yangon unlike never seen before such as burglaries, pickpockets, etc (pickpocket on almost on every bus, 3 apartments suffered burglary at the same time at Lanmadaw downtown, Yangon on the day before yesterday, etc) since over 20,000 criminals were released recently on the pardon of the current disgraceful president.

Furthermore, taking advantage of the non-performing Yangon government under the wasteful chief minister, a scammer even dares to abuse loadspeaker openly to help collect and pay for electricity bill where bill payment in Myanmar is inconvenient unlike other foreign countries, can't still be paid with automatic deduction through bank account but only can be paid at the office of electricity, just like Myanmar is still in a stone age era though Myanmar run the fastest for rip-off in the world history since 2010 for skyrocketing of property price (now comparable to New York, US, unbelievable Myanmar for being as merely as a beggar in reality though with no whatsoever success achievement in economy unlike Malaysia, Thailand, etc until so far since opening up in 2010, but shamelessly dare to play skyrocketing with nothing of achievement and then consequently play to death might be the final destination for Myanmar !!!), hotel room price, meal price, visa price, atm withdrawal fee, electricity price, Yangon car license tax, alcohol tax, car import duty, rice export duty, appliance import tax, rent tax, hostel tax, even adding the world's first tax called income tax which is targeted for all money with no tax collection history, etc

Many people in Myanmar make a living for free surprisingly by becoming monks unlike never seen before in all other countries.

Monks from Japan, China and Korea have to work hard for a living unlike the freeloading Myanmar monks.

Unlike the monks from other aforementioned countries above, the Myanmar monks have been disturbing all Myanmar people without rest as long as there is daylight using all kind of abuse method for donation request and indeed the usual abuse of the loudspeaker by the monks is the most unbearable one.

It's time to control and stop the immoral monks from abusing loudspeaker shamelessly everywhere immediately so that quality life would be returned to all Myanmar people and the responsibility absolutely lies with the current income-tax-monster government which has been collecting taxes heavily and unreasonably from all Myanmar people without working for all Myanmar people in area of regarding the endless disturbance from the shameless free-loading monks.

Most Myanmar people dies in Myanmar due to the oversupply of salt in their body.

Thanks to the sick Myanmar government which commits all crimes in order to earn money even in inhumane manner unlike all other foreign countries.

Myanmar government greedily sells butcher license at an extremely expensive price to many businesses in Myanmar and Myanmar government also allows them to inject the salt water into meat.

In order to recoup for the heavenly expensive butcher license price, the butcher businesses simply inject salt water into meat as much as or more than 100% unhealthy salty water so it's no wonder to see meat swelling like a shining meat ball in the market unlike never seen before in all other countries.

Injection of salt water into meat is the main root cause of almost all sickness emerging from in Myanmar which consequently causes the death of most people in Myanmar so the current Suu Kyi government has an undeniable responsibility for causing almost all sickness and deaths coming from oversupply of salt in their body by deliberately allowing the inhumane butcher businesses to inject unhealthy salt water into meat.

Labour union is out of touch to the reality in Myanmar that they merely represent 16% of the total population in Myanmar but dare to challenge politics by participating in election in order to manipulate and raise wage excessively without considering higher wage would discourage foreign investments as once happened in 2018 due to the skyrocketing of salary by 33%.

Labour union should control its greed and should also consider the remaining 84% population who have no job.

Local job creation is not strong enough to provide job for everyone so urgently need foreign investments to create jobs but wage is the key criteria of foreign investments in Myanmar and low wage is the attraction Myanmar need to win foreign investments.

Or else allowing the foolish labour union to raise wage by 50% every 2 years and then Myanmar wage should be the highest in Asia in a few years and then even the existing investments in Myanmar would sooner or later run to other low-wage labour countries such as Vanezuela, Bangladesh, India, etc where the wage of all these countries are much lower than the current minimum wage in Myanmar now.

So the no-brainer labour union is clearly sabotaging the labour market to collapse by attempting to skyrocket the wage by 50% every 2 years which would consequently drive out even most of the current existing investments in Myanmar.

Before it's too late to prevent from collapsing the labour market in Myanmar, the culprit labour union must be outlawed and banned immediately to provide more job opportunities to all population including the remaining 84% current jobless population in Myanmar

Myanmar is really a rip-off land where the greatest rip-off is coming from the current thief government itself led by the most fake democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi.

The Nissan Sunny car is made in Myanmar and Myanmar is much poorer than Thailand so the Nissan Sunny car produced in Myanmar should be cheaper than the similar Nissan Sunny car made in Thailand.
No, you're wrong !
The Myanmar-made Nissan Sunny car is outrageously more expensive than the Thailand-made Nissan Sunny car.

The Nissan Sunny car is 0.5 million baht in Thailand but in Myanmar, it costs about a whopping 0.66 million bath or about 28.8 millions kyat so it is at least 30 percent ((0.16/0.5)*100) more expensive in Myanmar than Thailand.

Everything is so unfair under the misleading of this hypocrite Suu Kyi who endlessly burdens everyone in Myanmar beyond acceptability, logic and reason.

Now everyone in Myanmar has to pay an extra income tax of 15% unfairly which is kind of advance payment of income tax, logically stupid and unreasonable and is never heard of in foreign countries or it may be silimar to a slave tax while slave system was not yet abolished before.
Yes, you need to pay an extra income tax of 15% for purchasing a car or a property or everything in Myanmar.
The extra income tax is indeed a slave tax initiated under only by the most fake and corrupt democracy system in Myanmar.

Probably for the calculation of election coming this year by the corrupt Suu Kyi, the income tax is temporarily reduced to 3% until the end of September this year deliberately but the outrageous 15% income tax is coming back on October this year.

The fake democracy in Myanmar is unreliable because it's full of unfairness and excessively burdening the people to bill the government's excessive wasting.
The government should not target people for money extraction and instead should target money extraction from all the natural resources which are more than enough to support both the government and all the people.

What is the difference between Aung San Suu Kyi and beggar?
Is Suu Kyi better than a beggar?

Recently there are groups of beggars singing on the street begging for food frequently.

Thanks to the worse than a beggar, the wasteful Suu Kyi harming the interest of all the Myanmar people.

The most foolish Suu Kyi is happy to raise the salary as well as the price of rice and everything even including the price of restaurant menu without considering the impact behind her foolish action.

With the biyearly rate of salary raising which amount at least 33% as done by Suu Kyi foolishly in 2016, it's predictable the salary in Myanmar would be the highest in a few years due to the policy of biyearly salary adjustment arrangement as well as allowing the labour union to bully investors at will for endless demands without law and order so wise foreign investors abandons all investments altogether in Myanmar straight away since 2016, considering the long-term interest instead of short-term interest, all thanks to the greedy Suu Kyi for raising the salary by 33% in 2016.

Suu Kyi is not up for the job to serve the Myanmar people because she is out of touch to the reality and enjoy her life lavishly now comparing to before becoming the current government worker unlike the Myanmar people in poverty without job.

The current president of Suu Kyi's choice is a joke as the president abuses power unlike the previous much better president.

Recently there was a news regarding a robbery in a village in Mulay, Sagaing where one of the robber or the leader of the robbers was the person who was released 4 months ago on this foolish president's pardon.

Pardoning and releasing thousands of prisoners during this epidemic by the president is the most foolish, imprudent action without considering of no more hiring at outside for the released prisoners to find jobs for survival during this epidemic so the president is absolutely responsible to compensate all sufferings encountered by the Myanmar people due to the foolish president's pardoned prisoners.

This president still wants to insist on approving on the corruption of free car import license for government workers until now where his share of the free car import license is worth 150 millions kyat.

The no-brainer Suu Kyi did it again to raise the daily minimum wage of poorest people involving in the countryside development programme (cash for work programme) to 8000 kyat or 67% salary raising from the current daily minimum wage of 4800 kyat.

Even the poorest people in the countryside in Myanmar are reaping 8000 kyat for the daily minimum wage so there would be a disaster consequence from the city dwellers to follow the trend to demand 20000 kyat for the daily minimum wage sooner or later and then the wage in Myanmar would be higher than China very soon and then the worst consequence would follow as all investments in Myanmar would no longer be sustainable due to the unacceptable high labour wage to the extent of collapsing, closing and shifting most of investments to other labour-cheaper destinations such as Vanezuela (daily minimum wage in Vanezuela is just 1300 kyat), Bangladesh, India, etc and then starvation and deaths would follow to spread across Myanmar uncontrollably. So Myanmar would officially become the most unsustainable and dangerous destination for investments for foreigners from then on.

The daily minimum wage in Vanezuela and India are 1300 kyat and 3600 kyat respectively, which are 269% and 33% respectively lower than the current daily minimum wage of Myanmar which is 4800 kyat so it's no wonder most foreign businesses have been selecting India, Bangladesh, etc for investments since the no-brainer Suu Kyi has been sabotaging all the cheap advantage and cheap attraction of Myanmar for foreign investors since 2016 so Myanmar is currently being misled dangerously by the out of touch British mother, the utmost foolish Suu Kyi.

Myanmar beggar labour union has been greedily demanding to raise wage dangerously by at least 50% every 2 years so investments in Myanmar are absolutely unsustainable unless the beggar labour union is dismantled immediately as well for good.

The period of the countryside development programme is just from 3 months to 6 months which is clearly not to help the countryside people but just to cheat all votes from countrysides for the upcoming election which is just about 4 months way from now on. Shameless cheating after cheating !!!

The worst consequences of this imprudent scheme of this countryside development are that by raising the minimum wage by 67% which would consequently skyrocket the hyperinflation again everywhere in Myanmar resulting most people would face difficulties of higher price for everything as well as after the end of the countryside development plan, there would be unrest throughout the countryside because with the end of the countryside development plan, there is no way to find any work which pay as much as 8000 kyat per day anymore in the countryside, inconsiderably unsustainable !!!

Without careful handling, this might instigate an all-out revolution in the countryside through the unrest created by the troublemaker Suu Kyi through her no-brainer selfish countryside development programme because people in countryside would no longer be content with low pay after the end of the countryside development programme.

Suu Kyi is clearly a traitor who has been creating troubles after troubles for all Myanmar people to seek her own interests above the Myanmar people since being released from prison.

The future of Myanmar would be completely destroyed if this most selfish Suu Kyi and her corrupt NLD party continues to manipulate the country affairs so they should be expelled immediately once and for all from involving in politics in order to prevent from creating more unnecessary troubles for all Myanmar people endlessly.
Simply traitor Suu Kyi is fitted for nowhere except her former prison.

Suu Kyi and NLD should be investigated for the corruption of massive wealth accumulation and also the reason behind China's massive donations to her foundation, etc. And also investigate to see whether or not it's legal for her corrupt NLD party to collect 25% from the government salary of all the NLD members which NLD party is well known to abuse power to only or mostly employ its own NLD members in the government to the extent of rejecting the votes from state to select its own state chief minister because a chief minister earns the NLD party 0.75 million kyat a month from the 3 millions monthly salary of the chief minister, the millions salary for government employee which is beyond word and out of touch to the reality of the very poor Myanmar country now.

Suu Kyi is the most corrupt politician who lied earlier during the election race last time to not accept any land offer from the government but recently a news confirmed that the corrupt Suu Kyi accepted 400 square feet of land (400 x 400 feet) which is equivalent to a combination of 66 plots of normal 40 x 60 feet where normally 2 families share a plot.

Continuing with this unfair and corrupt policy of rewarding enormous land to each 4-year government, people have no future in Myanmar anymore so all rewardings such as land, free car import license, etc and unnecessary salary raising in government must be banned immediately for fairness to the people who elected the current dishonest government in 2016.

Instead of investigating the corruption of the Yangon chief minister, Suu Kyi abuse the power of her corrupt NLD party to vote against the accusation in the parliament. The Yangon chief minister was also the one being accused of corruption earlier before in news for wearing 0.1 million US dollar watch and claimed the watch was a gift from someone.

Yangon region where the cheif minister manipulates has been backsliding where until now water is not clean where there are lots of stains and dirts in the pipe water, electricity bill payment has to be made at the office where no online payment or bank transfer is not yet accepted until now, Yangon car license is not issued for imported car, 80% of land are confiscated for area selected for development plan, no freehold for all Yangon apartments which don't even have a lease hold unlike in UK because land owner still claims ownership of the land where apartment building was built and collects monthly land rent from the apartment owners unfairly which is clearly the model of a beggar country.

The price of restaurants in Yangon is more expensive than Bangkok, Thailand though the income in Bangkok is 200% higher than Yangon.
So it's unfair for the people in Yangon to spend more money for food for the money they don't have from their earning.
A set meal of chicken+vegetable+rice in the 7eleven 24hr convenient stores is just 32 baht in Bangkok which is equivalent to 1429 kyat.

So Yangon urgently needs a capable, uncorrupted, 24hr hardworking chief minister to urgently adjust and control the price of everything such as the price of raw meat, vegetable, rice, milk, olive oil, rent, property, restaurant menu, hotel room, hostel room, food related items including for packaging, etc where everything must be adjusted and controlled based on the minimum wage for affordability and foreign meat firms which can produce and sell meat cheaper than the local greedy firms must be invited immediately to invest in Yangon by the government to return fairness and to benefit the people in Yangon who are burdened with the living cost due to the greedy local meat firms, the priority of the people in Yangon should be always above the greedy, lawless local meat firms so that people in Yangon should be able to afford food outside with their minimum wage very soon.

According the the department of electricity, the cost to produce one unit of electricity by hydropower plant is just 12 kyat and 54% of all electricity in Myanmar is currently produced by hydropower plants.

Just cost 12 kyat to produce per unit of electricity but charging 125 kyat per unit of electricity to consumer is the greatest scam ever recorded under any government in Myanmar so Suu Kyi has officially become the greatest scammer in the current fake democracy government where she violated the Constitution to stay above the law and the president shamelessly with the help of Kalar.

All the better achievement and justice of the true way of democracy under the previous government have been suppressed and destroyed by Suu Kyi's fake democracy dead-end which surprised not only the Myanmar people but also the whole world where Suu Kyi even disrespectfully profaned the world view upon her fake democracy doctrine as if in the name of protecting Myanmar but actually not as everyone in Myanmar is well aware of her hypocrisy and also expecting only for the worst from her hypocrisy to not only destroy the remaining hope of democracy in Myanmar but to turn Myanmar people into slaves starting by series of unfair actions one after another under her mismanagement such as raising the electricity fee by whopping 180% recently, imposing the combined taxes of both duty and tax for car import to as much as 150% (1.5 times of the price of car being imported), banning Yangon car license for imported car, imposing the hostel tax where the poor stay by 13%, raising the transaction tax of all business such as property, car, etc from 3% to 15% but currently rolled back to 3% just for 1 year until September this year seemingly to help with her dishonest re-election plan before the end of this year, rewarding herself of free car import license shamelessly while all Myanmar people are heavily burdened with the heaviest 150% import tax while she no need to a single cent for importing a car worthing as much as 0.15 billions or 150 millions kyat unreasonably, etc

It was hard under the military rule but it is harder now to survive under the terrible mismanagement of Suu Kyi to the extent of missing the better life under the military rule where food was abundant and cheap such as beef with cattle export ban under the umbrella protection of the military, the property price was a hundred times cheaper than now

At this late hour around 8PM, begger family roaming a street nearby begging for food while shouting they're hungry, are you hungry now, Suu Kyi?

Thanks to Suu Kyi's arrogant manner of raising salary 3 years ago by whopping 30% unlike never seen before in any country and consequently most foreign investors abandoned Myanmar and went to other countries for investments since then.

Not that Myanmar people are greedy but Suu Kyi who is out of touch to the reality in Myanmar and not caring to secure jobs at all cost for all the unfortunate who, the poor would be happy to earn 1,000 kyat daily as long as there is a job to feed them so no more suffering of destitute being encountered now but the problem is that there is no job for everyone now already.

Since democracy started in Myanmar, the salary of president, vice president, chief minister are above unreasonable 3 millions kyat to up to 5 millions kyat which is even higher than the salary of China president.

With higher salary, their spending power is strong enough to the extent of not caring food price scamming where price has been raising all the time against the reality logic of Myanmar which consequently harm the interest of the working class where most of them receive less than the daily minimum wage.
Consequently, the living expenses in Yangon is higher than Kuala Lumpur now where all Malaysian have their meals at cheap restaurants whereas all Myanmar people bring their lunchbox from home. Restaurants in Myanmar are unregulated unlike Malaysia so cheap restaurants of Myanmar have always been raising the food price shamelessly to the extent of surpassing food price of Malaysia now and also the amount of food and meat portions is merely half of what offers in Malaysia, a double rip-off and they are lucky for being in Myanmar where the Yangon chief minister ignored his responsibility of regulating restaurant food price throughout his tenure or else if they were in Malaysia, they would be certainly punished badly where justice prevails and you can find news on how Malaysia severely punished restaurants which raised the price of food and drink even just a little amount.

To understand the reality in Myanmar, the salary of president, vice president, chief minister should be adjusted to be less than 0.5 million kyat altogether, the lesser the better or else they would be blind always as they are now out of touch of the reality.

They should understand that the government position is not to make them rich but to sacrifice for the people but look at what they've done to the suffering of the people now, blame their unreasonable high salary which makes them out of touch to the reality in Myanmar.

If they want to get rich, they should seek other rewarding careers outside but not the government jobs which should be always much much lower than the outside to support the ongoing reality around the clock or else what is the government for?

There are lots of brighter successful people outside who love this nation to the extent of not willing to take anything from this nation, no bribe, no government salary, nothing at all but just to sacrifice their lifetime learning for the better future of the nation while well taking care of and seeking justice for the need of the society by applying necessary actions such as correcting rent so rent goes down by half (property price across Myanmar is out of reality and urgently require for correction to return dignity life back to Myanmar people while severely punishing property manipulators and freehold should be provided instead of leasehold for property ownership as Myanmar is no longer under British rule) so restaurant food more affordable by half consequently, etc
Is Suu Kyi and NLD up for the job of sacrifice?

Mitsubishi new car in Myanmar is almost 40% more expensive than US.

The price of Mitsubishi Mirage in US is just US$13,795 which is equivalent to Kyat$19,265,644.
The price of both Mitsubishi Mirage and Mitsubishi Attrage is almost the same.
The price of Mitsubishi Attrage in Myanmar is Kyat$26,500,000 which is more expensive than the US price by Kyat$7,234,356(26,500,000-19,265,644) or 38%(100*(7,234,356/19,265,644)).

Myanmar is the poorest country but Myanmar population are being scammed openly and ripped off unfairly by the current shameless fake democracy government.

There is no whatsoever justice for the Myanmar population until now and for what purpose the hypocrite Suu Kyi is still pretending as a savior in Myanmar unlike on the international stage where she has already become a notorious pirah and the disgraced from the darling of the west since her true color of fake democracy doctrine has been revealed worldwide. Suu Kyi's corrupt democracy doctrine not only failed the great expectation from the world but also failed the Myanmar population.

Myanmar has no job to offer now on top of million of Myanmar workers returning from foreign countries who lost their job recently due to the coronavirus.

Minimum wage is to target to the foreign factories in Myanmar but since most foreign factories have been closed due to the coronavirus so is it necessary to sustain the obsolete minimum wage? If so, there is no way the Myanmar factories are going to be able to afford the outrageous minimum wage so the expensive minimum wage is going to destroy the current faltering economy of Myanmar to a complete shutdown.

Useless people like U Win Zaw of the National Committee who proposed raising the minimum wage racklessly by around 50% this year, is harmful to the development of the future of Myanmar so rackless people like U Win Zaw, Suu Kyi who racklessly raised 30% of the minimum wage in 2016 as well as raised the electricity price by 180% in 2019, etc should be fired instantly to prevent harming the future of the nation by their rackless actions again.

The best solution is to reduce the minimum wage to less than the minimum wage of India where the minimum wage of India is 3,600 kyat per day or to beat all competition is to equal the minimum wage to Venezuela where its minimum wage of Venezuela is around 1,320 kyat per day.

To survive is to beat all competition by copying the minimum wage of Venezuela by setting the minimum wage to 1,320 kyat per day so that all jobs in Asia would be transferred to Myanmar to benefit more than 50% of jobless Myanmar population or else starvation is waiting for Myanmar unlike never seen before as foreign factories are closing one after another non-stop and no new job whatsoever is available anymore and millions of Myanmar people who traditionally rely on job offers from abroad no longer work as factories are shutting down massively at abroad too.

The consequence of the rackless Suu Kyi approving the proposal of raising wage from the another rackless U Win Zaw will not only not create job but only multiply beggars unlike never seen before throughout the street in Myanmar.

People here are without job and then why the rice price here is still 300% more expensive than Cambodia where 2 kg or 1 Phyi of high quality rice is just 500 kyat, whereas Paw San rice in Myanmar is at least 2,000 kyat per 2 kg. Is Myanmar so much richer than Cambodia to result rice price in Myanmar to be 300% much more expensive outrageously ? Does Suu Kyi have a brain to reason or is she simply a moron ?

Suu Kyi is the most dishonest scammer to all Myanmar people.

Suu Kyi said to give 150 units of electricity for free to every household on April.

But the amount of bill for April skyrocketed almost double comparing to the previous month, Mar bill so Suu Kyi should explain why this cheating is being encountered by all poor Myanmar people unreasonably.

Greedy Suu Kyi should be ashamed of grabbing money out of the pocket of Myanmar people by force by outrageously raising the electricity price by almost 150% and consequently the electricity price in Myanmar is higher than China by almost 50% now unlike never seen before throughout history.

Shameless Suu Kyi would be kicked out by all Myanmar people by the end of this year and then the succeeding government would return justice to Myanmar people by invalidating all injustice policies including the unfair raising of electricity price imposted by the tyranny Suu Kyi.

Suu Kyi should be with her foreign children in her husband's motherland, very rich England and should not be among poor Myanmar people to dig for gold along with her stupid NLD former-prisoners accomplices resulting all poor Myanmar people suffering endlessly due to her greed under her inhumane rule, Myanmar people are poor so Suu Kyi's greed doesn't work here and consequently Suu Kyi doesn't belong here but hope Suu Kyi returns justice to Myanmar people before going back to England by correcting the electricity price for the sake of fairness which should not be higher than China or else Suu Kyi and her descendants would be cursed by all Myanmar people for the rest of her life.

To profit from great expectation of foreign tourism since opening up Myanmar in 2011, the then Myanmar government wickedly skyrocketed restaurant food price and hotel price unlike never seen before resulting most Myanmar people not being able to afford restaurant food since then to until now unlike Malaysia where its minimum wage allows Malaysian to comfortably eat 3 meals a day at restaurant without any worry because Malaysia restaurant are very cheap with no tourist rip-off price unlike the cursed greedy Myanmar.

However, since the epidemic of the coronavirus, there is no more foreign tourist in Myanmar but the skyrocketed tourist rip-off price for restaurant food and hotel room still remains unfortunately where Myanmar people has to burden the the skyrocketed tourist rip-off price to get essential restaurant food so it's not fair to maintain the skyrocketed tourist rip-off price in Myanmar since there is no more foreign tourist in Myanmar and consequently the price of restaurant food and hotel room should be localized as before 2010 to return affordability, fairness, justice to the Myanmar people.

Government should monitor restaurant not to earn more than 50% of its investment for the benefit of all parties including customer (more affordable restaurant food), government (earning more tax since consumer spend more on restaurant food) and restaurant owner (earn more on more orders not on higher rip-off price anymore) so that there is no reason the price of all restaurant food should be cheaper at least 50% immediately by government banning of restaurant not to profit more than 50% on investment in order to eradicate the tourist rip-off price.

63% (65/103) out of coronavirus infection from Yangon are coming from a culprit Christian pastor who are even shameless now during this epidemic to make fortune out of a religion.

Without the culprit pastor, there should be less 64 coronavirus infection from the Yangon region so it's time to outlaw all Christian pastors for the sake of national security so that no gathering shall be allowed anymore for religious purpose including all other religions. All outlawed pastors must be monitored around the clock and any pastor committing a crime of assembling more than 5 people should be arrested immediately.

Curfew is not helpful in Yangon because it's against the freedom of movement of democracy so people needing a hospital emergency during curfew are as good as dead now as well as it's unreasonable to ban people going to the 24hr convenient store in the middle of the night for their need while stray dogs and stray cats which can spread the coronavirus dangerously, can roam freely everywhere unreasonably in Yangon around the clock.

Instead of curfew (curfew must be removed), wearing a mask should be more than sufficient to prevent the spreading of coronavirus but government must support washable cotton masks to be available cheaply everywhere in Yangon as this is the most effective weapon against the coronavirus spreading and government must also remind all people everywhere to wear mask to prevent coronavirus infection.

Air conditioner must be switched off for all the city buses and taxies and a ventilator must be installed on each City bus and each taxi to ensure no coronavirus infecting happening on the city buses and taxies and the forehead temperature must be measured for each passenger by the driver to ensure no sick passenger mingles among the rest of others.

The forehead temperature of all city bus drivers and taxi drivers must be measured at least daily by the government to ensure no spreading of the coronavirus from the drivers to the whole city or else the consequences are unimaginable.

Any taxi driver without following a government order of daily forehead temperature checking should be arrested and a subsequent arrest should confiscate the taxi in order to instill fear for the sake of national security.

25,000 prisoners were released on today due to a pardon from the Myanmar president is the greatest mistake ever done during this Spanish flu epidemic called coronavirus where the first victim of the Spanish flu was originated from Kansas, US because what those whopping 25,000 prisoners are able to achieve at outside (where there is no honest job available now due to the Spanish flu epidemic called coronavirus) are unimaginable to what are going to happen such as murdering, robbing, raping, etc.

Since the prisoners' release is due to the pardon from the president, the president has the absolute responsible to answer to all future crimes going to be committed by any of the 25,000 prisoners released today.

5 millions monthly salary of the president might not be enough to compensate the future crimes which are going to be committed by the 25,000 prisoners released today.

Since Myanmar have a president, why Myanmar wastes more salary for Suu Kyi or else another solution should be that the president position should be removed while Suu Kyi is the head of the government to save the 5 millions monthly salary wasting for the president position.

The Myanmar president is great because in less than a week after visiting India by the president, India announced to close all the India border gates next to Myanmar at the time while the epidemic was not that severe.

Since the 25,000 prisoners have been released, the government should allocate a budget of approximately 60 billions annually = ((25,000 x 200,000) x 12) to monitor all the individual prisoner in order to ensure people are not suffering any crime due to any of the released 25,000 prisoners or else government might have to compensate more for the crimes going to be committed by any of the 25,000 prisoners so the government has to be very prudent with whatever action it take.

Instead of offering the unfair free car import licenses to the government officials as instructed by this corrupt president recently, the import duty should be reduced from probably the absolutely unreasonable and unacceptable 100% to the same rate as the US where car importing duty is merely from no dutiable fee to 2.4%. This government corruption is already beyond reason, fairness and justice.

Even the raw beef is injected with water like a balloon lawlessly at the Chanmyae market, Pazundaung, Yangon.

The similar scam with pork is not taken care earlier almost 2 or 3 years ago by the useless Yangon chief minister resulting the scam spreading to the raw beef now, unbelievable !

It is time to investigate scams and corruption of the Yangon chief minister so as not to repeat vileness in Yangon and consequently Yangon may no longer need the unhelpful Yangon chief minister immediately and consequently save 3 millions kyat every months from paying salary to the wasteful Yangon chief minister.

50 billions kyat of social security fund should be allocated to suppress the inflation to alleviate and lower the living cost of millions of jobless people including the hundreds of thousand of people who recently lost their jobs due to the coronavirus.
However, the NLD regime abused the social security fund usage and instead allocated it to lend to local businesses without considering of plight of the people suffering under coronavirus.

No democracy is as fake as the one created by Suu Kyi.
The initial inspiration of Suu Kyi was to support the people against corrupt government servants.
However, when the Suu Kyi gained power, people are being burdened unkindly one after another, heavier tax, heavier inflation, skyrocketed electricity fee, etc while the corrupt government servents left behind by the military regime are well treated above the people, with pay already been raised twice under Suu Kyi government (the pay raise of the first time was accomplished after Suu Kyi borrowed money from Western country, unbelievably!), consequently the lowest salary of toilet cleaner in the government is now higher than the skilled garment worker now while the level of corruption in government now still maintains the same as before, not any better. Normally the pay in government should be always lower than outside or else it seems people have to work like cows or slaves to support the high salary of the corrupt government kings and queens.

Electricity price was unreasonably raised as much as 180% recently comparing to the previous Thein Sein government in order to support the selfish undertaker Suu Kyi to realize her dream of providing as much as the full coverage of the whole nation from only 30% of coverage previously.
Is it fair to rip off all people unfairly in Myanmar for using electricity under NLD so that with the rip-off earning, the undertaker Suu Kyi can waste endless building of gas power generators to fulfill her unrealistic, wasteful dream.

Due to the mismanagement of NLD government, military is facing international lawsuits one after another for crime against humanity now.
If NLD government were a bit maintaining its original democracy inspiration and persuaded and guided military for less extremity in advance, there would never be a Rohinga issue in Myanmar now.
With this Roginga issue, NLD should take responsibility for its mismanagement without playing a blame game against the military.

Pork on sale at the Latha market in Yangon is not like meat but instead like a balloon. The balloon pork is actually filled with water as much as 100% of its weight and the water is released after cooking the meat.
This cheating was not encountered under the previous Thein Sein government but only under the current NLD government.
The Yangon chief minister should take responsibility for ignoring this balloon pork scam for as much as for 4 years.

From no parking fee to a recent plan of collecting a parking fee of very expensive 500 kyat per hour is unreasonable and unacceptable.
Foolish NLD shouldn't allow its greed overtake the limit of local acceptance and the acceptable range should be from 50-200 kyat an hour of parking.
The motive is to reduce traffic congestion so places where there is no traffic congestion where the parking fee should not be collected consequently or else it would be too burdensome to survive in Yangon and consequently NLD would not be forgiven forever in Yangon.

Tyranny Suu Kyi government rewarding senior government servants such as ministers, etc and all servants working for more than 25 years with free car import licenses which worths about 50 millions kyat is not fair as no benefit was given to the people unfairly who did elect the current ungrateful Suu Kyi government.

The imported car price in Myanmar is as much as 116% more expensive than the international car price for the Brilliance V3 brand is absolutely unacceptable so this corruption of NLD should be investigated immediately once NLD is out of the office at the end of this year.

High class rice in Cambodia is just 17 cents per kg or 34 cents or 486 kyat per viss whereas the price in Myanmar is over 500% more expensive than Cambodia, thanks to the foolish NLD government raising the bottom price of rice for 2 time during the last 4 years.
Myanmar people are poorer than Cambodia people so Myanmar people desperately need military support to create an affordable rice price comparable to the rice price of Cambodia to benefit the poor people since the out of touch NLD government doesn't care the hardship of the people except its endless greed resulting of catering only the interest of foreign investors while ignoring its real duty to serve the interest of the people so inconveniences still insist in Yangon such as not allowing to pay utility bill through online, the back of the apartment building was filled with rubblish, rat, mosquito, etc which not being taken care since Thein Sein era, etc

Collecting 25% fee from the government salary of NLD members is questionable while the plight of unfortunate NLD members sacrifing in 88 are not looked after and ignored until now.

Millions of people in India are jobless now due to coronavirus so it is very unreasonable for Suu Kyi to request the garment factories to keep the employment of the workers while as much as 70% of all orders in Myanmar coming from EU were cancelled recently.
Instead in order to save the employment of garment worker in Myanmar, Suu Kyi should plead the EU not to cancel the orders from the garment factories of Myanmar or else is she really useless except squeezing the poor and helpless people in Myanmar to pay much more money for expensive electricity unfairly in Myanmar while electricity price in China is as much as 50% more cheaper than Myanmar now, reasonable ? Yes, reasonable should be the answer from the corrupt electricity department in Myanmar but hope Suu Kyi doesn't agree with the corrupt eventually and help restore justice of the electricity price for the sake of people soon.

Myanmar is now truely a rip-off land even for its own people.

A car like the BRILLIANCE V3 car was marketed with the price tag of 65,700 yuan or equivalent to US dollar 9,479.
But in Myanmar, the price of this same model car is 27.8 millions kyat or equivalent to US dollar 20,496.
So the BRILLIANCE V3 car is incredibly more expensive in Myanmar than any other countries all over the world by a whopping 116%.

(20,496 - 9,479 = 11,017 , 11,017 / 9,479 x 100 = 116%)

Where are justice and fairness for the people still being ripped off officially in Myanmar?

https://autoweek.com/article/car-news/brilliance-v3-poor-mans-bmw-i3

So NLD government should treat its own People with both justice and fairness by removing all of the rip-off pricing of all imported items across Myanmar immediately before handing over power at the end of this year.

High-quality rice price in Myanmar is a whopping 534% more expensive than Cambodia unfairly even though Myanmar is poorer than Cambodia in reality.

According to the news below, 1kg of high-quality frangrance rice in Cambodia is just 17 cents US dollar or equivalent to 243 kyat Myanmar per kg or 394 kyat per viss ( = 243 xx 1.62 ) whereas the price for 1 viss of high-quality Paw San rice in Yangon is almost 2500 kyat (2500 / 394 = 6.35 times)

Setting a minimum price for rice is like a communist country according to Cambodia Minister Hun Sen's speech below in the news and that is exactly what the current NLD government in Myanmar has been manipulating the rice market for a higher price unreasonably probably for at least twice during the previous 3 years, resulting higher inflation across Myanmar unpractically.

The following are excerpts from the Cambodia news;

"One producer told VOA that he now sells fragrant rice, a high-quality brand, for 700 riel (US$0.17) per kilogram"

"On December 26 2019, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen stressed that his government won’t intervene in 2020 to prop falling prices"

"Cambodia isn’t a “communist country,” he said in his December 26 2019 speech, while stating that “we could only make an appeal, but the market mechanism does not require the state to set the prices.”"

https://www.google.com/amp/s/asiatimes.com/2020/01/cambodia-rice-crisis-signals-deeper-economic-rot/

Here is Myanmar not England where Su Kyi had a family life before so to make changes here is to be a part of the reality here where people don't sense any meaningful contribution from Su Kyi until now except her twice meaningless raising of the salary to all government workers bountifully which are even higher than the wage of skilled garment worker at the bottom wage (where illiterate soldier at the bottom rank fetch higher wage than the skilled garment worker) , very unfair where most government workers still cause many difficulty to the people until now unless being bribed. So what is the use?

Probably a year ago, corrupt water department in Yangon collected each flat for 40,000 kyat in order to install a water meter and instead just installed 1 water meter for 4 flats to be shared among.
So look like 1 water meter cost a whopping 160,000 kyat (40,000 kyat x4) according to the water department.
Sharing 1 water meter among 4 flat is very inconvenient as one needs to engage with other flat owner unnecessarily to share the bill equally unlike before the current NLD government where we rarely see other flat owner or renter.
This corruption from the water department has to be resolved and 1 water meter should be installed for each flat as there is no fairness of water usage on sharing 1 water meter among many flats.
This unfairness happened only under the current NLD government so the person responsible for implementing this unfair water meter sharing should go to jail to appease the anger of people suffering under the stupidity of the culprit or else NLD might become the target of anger for corruption.

Utility bill payment in Yangon is still like ancient time and physically need to run to the ghost building to pay bill in cash.
So any improvement plan from Yangon government to facilitate the bill payment like any other country through bank reduction or so on?

Why are the importances in people's life not in the agendas of Yangon government ?
Like affordable food in restaurant menu ( no tourist rip-off menu price but the local price), affordable room in hotel ( no tourist rip-off price but the local price), corruption free government department where reporting corruption is bountifully rewarded anonymously to completely eliminate corruption in Myanmar, ID issuing department should be under the control of the reliable passport issuing department or else no ID is issued even after 20 years of application legally, very strange and shameful.

Gangster Ma Kyi Kyi Tun from the trade unions or labour union acted as if her Union was above the law and lawlessly gave an ultimatum to the employers of garment factories (as if employers are slaves) to work with her unions as if her Union is a master above government and employer according to the following excerpt from a news.

"Hlaing Tharyar Township’s employee representative Ma Kyi Kyi Tun from the Confederation of Trade Unions of Myanmar (CTUM) said: “It appears that some factories will close temporarily, providing certain compensation for employees. Employers must cooperate with trade unions.”"

Factories are closing one after another like 3 factories in a week recently mostly due to worker aggression such as endless strikes, unreasonable demands and so on which are 100% instigated by the labour Union or trade unions.
Even one factory was closed completely due to many strikes instigated by labour union and its employees were compensated and then the factory was opened again after few months with its former employees but the leader of the labour union was never employed again. It's so sad to see this factory wasted so much money, time and energy just to get rid of the troublemaker labour union.

So you see how terrible the labour Union or trade unions are to the development of Myanmar so the trade unions or labour union should be dismantled immediately before it's too late.

Myanmar would not be this lucky to see closed factories being reopened as in a case above because closed factories usually run to other countries where labour is cheaper than Myanmar by 30-50% such as Bangladesh, India, Vanezuela, etc as well as having a friendly environment where is no tourist rip-off price like in Myanmar where restaurant food is solely priced (tourist rip-off price) for tourist instead of the local resident so the local can't afford even 2 sets of cheapest meal at a cheap restaurant with their daily minimum wage.
Restaurant food at Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, etc are priced for the local instead of tourist rip-off price so these countries are much much cheaper than Myanmar and the food portion is also almost double, especially the meat portion so even tourist think restaurant food at very poor Myanmar is crazy expensive or not worthy comparing to many of the more developed Asia countries where the food price is cheaper than Myanmar.

Tourist rip-off price in Myanmar restaurant has more disadvantages than advantage such as the locals don't spend money at restaurants so less tax for the government and most tourist completely abandon visiting Myanmar due to famous tourist rip-off price practised across Myanmar such as restaurant, hotel, museum, Pagoda, etc. Offering local price to tourist will attract them much more than the tourist rip-off price currently being offered in Myanmar.

Anyway, tourist already bring much more benefit even before they come, which is by paying visa fee to the government. So in return, government should return justice to the tourist which I hope is not by offering a tourist rip-off price but by offering the local price in honesty, don't you think?

Hotel room in Yangon is small and worse than Kuala Lumpur but it is much more expensive than Kuala Lumpur as much as a 50-150% for the same size and quality.
According to news, the bottom price of hotel rooms in Myanmar is outrageously controlled not be be lower than a certain amount so government should also return justice to tourist by abolishing the price controlling of hotel room so that the hotel room price would return to where it was before in 2011 where an air-con room was 5000 kyat per night which the local could afford then comparing to now, unreasonable price to the extent of most local can'afford hotel room so date in the park and get pregnant too consequently.

According to the latest mandate from India in 2019, the daily minimum wage in India is just 178 rupee or equivalent 3600 kyat which is 33% lower than the daily minimum wage in Myanmar where the daily minimum wage is 4800 kyat.

The wage of Vanezuela is even much more cheaper than India and the monthly wage in Vanezuela is just 20 US dollar or equivalent to 29000 kyat or daily minimum wage is 29000/2=1320 kyat.

The labour union which was formed in 2010 is very active in the wrong way in Myanmar and creates lot of unnecessary troubles for both the government and the investers to the extent of many investees were forced to close its factories to flee to other countries for investment instead where no investers are threatened like in Myanmar by its nonproductive, lazy, greedy workers, especially the leaders from the labour union.
Don't understand the unholy motive of the labour Union aiming for a revolution to kick out all investers out of Myanmar.

Myanmar need more foreign investment to feed more unemployed people than pleasing the greedy useless leaders from the labour union who the useless leaders are unlike the government, very short-sighted, greedy and selfish without considering the remaining 35-45% population who have no stable job unlike like them. Creating trouble after trouble, less investment and even worse existing factories will close one after another due to the troublesome labour union.

Labour union is a curse to Myanmar so the labour union must be dismantled immediately for good for the future of Myanmar.

No country raises salary as much as 30% just like the current NLD government did.
It was just like yesterday of raising the salary by 30% and now the labour Union is outrageously demanding for a 100% salary raising by this year.
Increasing the salary will decrease factories or descreasing the salary will increase the factories.
Since more people urgently need job, making the right decision by the government is very important which should not absolutely please the selfish rubbish labour union but to the people without job, decreasing the salary by 30% which should amount exactly to the daily minimum wage in India should profit all people, certainly not the shitty labour union.

Though the out of touch Yangon government is useless by not localizing the daily minimum wage to food price even from the cheapest restaurants in Yangon where workers can't even afford 2 meals of the cheapest chicken curry meal set in Yangon restaurant with their minimum wage, nothing should be wrong about the minimum wage as long as its attractiveness encourages investment but the problem is the rip-off from the restaurants where we don't see the useless culprit Yangon government stopping ripoff from Yangon restaurant until now to localize the restaurant price so that workers should be able to afford food at cheap restaurant with their minimum wage.
Malaysia government is very kind to its people to the extent of punishing rip-off restaurants without mercy, the link below is an example from Malaysia.
"Malaysia eatery boss fined over 'expensive' iced Milo"
https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/malaysia-eatery-boss-fined-over-expensive-iced-milo
Meal and meat portion of a set meal in Yangon is very few which is as much as half of the portions in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia though the prices on both locations are almost the same so this is also a master rip-off from the Yangon restaurant, thanks to the messup management of unsophisticated Yangon government.
People should be first or else the Yangon government should be gone for merely functioning as a prison.
To function as an important city government, the welfare of people must be prioritized where affordability is a virtue to people so food price across Yangon restaurants must be regidly forced to remove the rip-off menu price and the menu price must be based on less than 100% of the profit taking so a curry set meal in Yangon restaurant should be between 1300-1750 from the current outrageous 3000-4000 kyat.
High rent also contributes to higher food price in restaurants and since Myanmar is a poor country and high rent is out of touch to reality, government must adjust appropriate rent for restaurant to benefit affordability to Yangon resident.
No company should be under government just like what Yangon government does so Yangon government should close its company and instead does its real job focusing on the welfare and virtue of its people

Democracy is just plainly the greatest ripoff which all people in Myanmar have ever been suffering now under the leadership of the most cruel scammer Suu Kyi.

Though Myanmar is well known as the poorest country not only in the world but also in the poorer Asia region but the price of electricity and chicken meat in Myanmar is outrageously much more expensive than the second most powerful economic country, China in the world.

Electricity price has been raised unreasonably recently starting this month in Myanmar as much as over 180% unlike never seen in any country throughout history so the electricity price in Myanmar is much more than in China now by as much as 100%.

There is no whatsoever justice and fairness under this sick Suu Kyi's leadership so she is clearly a traitor to all people in Myanmar.

As much as half population in Myanmar are jobless and all people in Myanmar burdened with the unfair skyrocketing electricity bill for last month would certainly hate to see the traitor Suu Kyi and her traitor party in politics immediately.

Electricity price must be adjusted fairly and immediately to consider the situation of all Myanmar people or else there is no return for Suu Kyi and her NLD party.

The ministry of electricity and energy is said to be the most corrupt government agency in Myanmar but nothing has been done to this most corrupt government agency so far until now so this inaction has repeatedly harms the progress of Myanmar outrageously in a manner of frequent power outage until recently.

Even in Yangon alone, whooping 1.6 billion electricity units is stolen every year but no one from the ministry of electricity and energy takes responsible for the theft according to the news below;

Yangon Region losing electricity units worth over K1.6bn yearly
https://elevenmyanmar.com/news/yangon-region-losing-electricity-units-worth-over-k16bn-yearly

The ministry of electricity and energy even seems to collude with private firms by allowing them to rip off household and business lawlessly at off-grid area so the rate of unit charged by some private firms at some part of a region is the most expensive in the world which is even much more expensive than producing your own electricity with a generator, understand.

How could some private firms act without law and order at the off-grid area?
Indeed, without the blessing, backing and permission of the most corrupt ministry of electricity and energy, some private firm would never dare to charge electricity at the highest rate as never seen before even across all all countries in the world.

Nowhere in the world including UK, US or any country charges electricity as high as some private firms blessed by the most corrupt ministry of electricity and energy.

The hopeless ministry of electricity and energy is shameless to the extent of leaking this news today proudly that what the private firms blessed by the ministry of electricity and energy has been charging outrageouly at the off-grid area as if justifying the recent electricity price hyper-hiking seemingly haven't yet met the earning expectation of some private firms blessed by the ministry of electricity and energy.

Who know where the lost electricity of 1.6 billion units flow into and did the accomplice private firms of the ministry of electricity and energy also enjoy profiting together from the lost electricity?

Anyway, the ministry of electricity and energy is clearly the curse resulting the downfall of the whole industry of electricity in Myanmar which harms both business and people badly and repeatedly and the poor victims who suffer the most from the theft and manipulation of the ministry of electricity and energy are all Myanmar people in Yangon, yes Myanmar people who did elect Suu Kyi to the current leadership position in the current government.
So if Suu Kyi were grateful to the people who elected her, she should not support the most corrupt government agency, the ministry of electricity and energy and immediately scrap the the plan of the electricity price hyper-hiking this month.

The ministry of electricity and energy is extremely corrupt and hopeless with lots of private firms accomplices under its shadow control.
So the only solution to purify the ministry of electricity and energy is either to completely dismantle it immediately or transfer all management positions out of the ministry of electricity and energy and replace them with uncorrupted and capable officers and also close down its accomplice private firms to return justice to the Myanmar people.

Anyway, the electricity price in Myanmar should not be more expensive than China where a unit price is 4-4.5 cent US dollar in China.
If Myanmar requested, China would certainly share electricity to Myanmar at a unit rate not higher than 4-4.5 cent US dollar.
Since Myanmar people still need support from the government, government should still subsidize electricity to alleviate the burden of the people during this difficult time.

Hundreds of Myanmar people protested at various townships in Yangon today against the injustice hyper-hiking of electricity price this month without consulting with the Myanmar people for approval according to the news below,

Yangon residents take to streets to protest government’s electricity rate hike
https://coconuts.co/yangon/news/yangon-residents-take-to-streets-to-protest-governments-electricity-rate-hike/

Even worse the current government manifested its profane disrespect to the Myanmar people by announcing the price hyper-hiking of the electricity of the household in less than a week before the electricity price hyper-hiking officially taking place this month.

The electricity price of the household was hyper-hiked for 150% for usage above 201 units, 180% for usage between 101-200 units and 73% for usage between 0-100 units.

For the 500 units household electricity usage, the household have to pay whooping 54,820 kyat now, starting this month instead of the previous 22,500 kyats which was valid until last month so the household will suffer 144% higher electricity price due to this electricity price hyper-hiking implemented by the current government led by Suu Kyi.

The price of household electricity in China is as much as 50% cheaper than Myanmar for 500 units usage.

Myanmar is the poorest country and its daily minimum is also lower comparing to its neighboring countries such as Thailand where the daily minimum wage is 16,303 kyat which is as much as more 3 times of the daily minimum wage of Myanmar which is 4,800 kyat per day so the daily minimum wage in Thailand is 240% higher than Myanmar.

So it is the utmost stupid for the current brainless Myanmar government to compare the price of electricity with the richer, more developed countries while people in Myanmar are quite poor.

For the monthly wage for a person in Myanmar with the minimum wage, working for 22 days a month, the person's monthly wage will be 105,600 kyat. And the person may also has a family and has to support his family with his wage.
But the surprise problem coming this month from the electrictity price hyper-hiking of 144% is going to become a survival crisis for his family because what he spent 22,500 kyat on the last month for his 500 units of electricity usage is going to cost him 54,820 kyat this month, so the electricity price hyper-hiking will rob him off the extra 32,320 kyat out of his survival wage.
So after paying this month's electricity bill of 54,820 kyat, the remaining from his monthly wage will be 50,780 kyat.
With the remaining 50,780 kyat, how is he going to be able to support his family probably including an elderly parent, a wife, 1 or 2 children?
Did Suu Kyi ever consider this problem deeply for the sake of the well-being of the Myanmar people before approving this electricity price hyper-hiking?

What the NLD party or government sinned against the poor Myanmar people is unforgivable.
Comparing to the military rule, Myanmar people may not be rich comparing to foreign countries but Myanmar people were not suffering out of proportion under the military, people had affordable places to sleep in dignity and the living cost was cheap too such as beef price due to the cattle export ban under the protection of military umbrella unlike the NLD which many actions and follow-ups confirm to gradually turning Myanmar people into slave where life is as worse as in burning hell under NLD leadership.

NLD should admit its mistakes and beg for forgiveness from Myanmar people and immediately cancel the unreasonable electricity price hyper-hiking immediately or else NLD can forget politics in Myanmar as NLD will sooner or later abandoned by the Myanmar people who are suffering under NLD poor leadership.

Reasonable is acceptable to the Myanmar people but the unreasonable of this hyper-hiking of electricity price above the market rate by NLD is not acceptable to the Myanmar people.
If Myanmar people were still forced to accept this unreasonable from NLD now, Myanmar people will force NLD to go to hell in election on next year.

Anyway, without NLD or with NLD gone next year, the succeeding government would certainly abolish this unreasonable electricity price hyper-hiking to return justice to the people suffering like hell under NLD authoritarian in order to win the trust of Myanmar people.

Probably last year, the supply of electricity to a region in Myanmar was transferred to a foreign firm due to the power shortage and the foreign firm charged probably 55 kyat per unit of electricity to the resident of the region where it supplies its electricity according to news.

55 kyat per unit charged by the foreign form to the region in Myanmar is clearly the market rate which is without the government subsidy.

Now the robber Suu Kyi announced to raise the rate of electricity to as much as 125 kyat per unit starting from next month which is 70 kyat higher per unit comparing to the yesteryear market rate according to the aforementioned foreign firm.

Even with no more electricity subsidy from the government, the electricity price should not be higher than the market rate of the aforementioned foreign firm.

Myanmar have got an irresponsible robbery issue starting with the dishonest Suu Kyi.
Raising 70 kyat per unit above the market is clearly a robbery, wicked Suu Kyi and her NLD members are a bunch of traitors which must go to jail for this treason of violating the Myanmar people's trust sooner or later.

People are struggling with low wage which consequently helps the government to attract foreign firms to help develop Myanmar and the people are actually heroes whose sacrifice indeed help attract foreign firms.

Instead of supporting the heroes, the wicked Suu Kyi is always looking loopholes to persecute the poor heroes and even not sparing to the few food in heroes' mouths. The action of untrustworthy Suu Kyi signifies that she wouldn't relent to the persecution of the heroes until the heroes go for work in hunger due to no money left to pay for ripoff expenses such as the burdensome hyper-inflated electricity bill and so on which most of them were imposed by no other than the evildoer Suu Kyi.

While most Myanmar people are poor and destitute, the dishonest Suu Kyi bought repeatedly over hundred acres of land at many places to build her foundation and with all of the buildings cooming soon on her land, she should spend millions of US dollar, Suu Kyi is not that rich at all originally and the question here is that where are all the millions of US dollar coming from ? Suu Kyi along with her political accomplices must be thoroughly investigated for corruption on next year when she is no longer in the government office.

Myanmar people need a stable life, not kind of unnecessary burdensome pressure under the corrupt government led by the dishonest Suu Kyi.

So it is time the military should kick out the wicked Suu Kyi and her corrupt government immediately and give the people they deserve a better place to rest and affordable living cost just like before this shitty democracy system kicked in into Myanmar around 2010.

Democracy is so vain in Myanmar with the wrong leadership and yes, indeed Suu Kyi is the vainest as she's well abhorred now all over the world for her betrayal of the value of democracy, her people and the expectation of the world which she pretended fighting for before, her Nobel price was a mistake because she pretended so well but Suu Kyi really deserves an Oscar award for cheating the whole world unlike never seen before in history so she should quit politics and go for the acting career at Hollywood where she would be appreciated with real Oscar awards but not at politics where she is all wrong always and consequently Myanmar people always suffer under her foolish and wicked leadership.

If Suu Kyi feel responsible a bit for the wellbeing of Myanmar people, she must immediately cancel the original plan of skyrocketing the electricity price and instead raises the rate appropriately according to the market rate which is 55 kyat per unit for all electricity usage so no more different rate and subsidy (even with no more government subsidy, justice must be returned to the people and people should not be charged more than the market rate for God's sake, Suu Kyi shouldn't behave so lawless without regarding the Myanmar people's right and suffering), and also should seriously consider to resign immediately before being kicked out by the military for always creating so much unnecessary troubles and pressure for the poor Myanmar since her first day in the office.

No infrastructure in Mandalay, Pyin Oo Lwin, etc in Myanmar so no public transport that meets international standard.
Taxi in Myanmar is worse and more expensive than the cheaper private car call at Grab Malaysia.

Food price is a bit more expensive than Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and meat and food portion is much smaller than Kuala Lumpur.
Beer is stupid expensive comparing to China, Vietnam because there is 60% tax for beer in Myanmar.

Travelling in Myanmar is not convenient unlike other Asia countries as the bus station is located at outside the city for most cities in Myanmar and taxi takes as much as 1 hour to go to the bus station and taxi fare is also expensive.

Hotel in Myanmar is much more expensive than Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia because Myanmar hotel is intended for foreign tourist, not for the local.
If the hotel were intented for the local, the price of hotel room should also reflect the earning of the local in order to make the hotel affordable for the local

The current thief government of Myanmar is going to raise the price of electricity by a whooping 125% from the current 50 kyat per unit to 125 kyat per unit for over 201 units household consumption, starting from next month.

Myanmar electricity rates to soar next month
https://www.mmtimes.com/news/myanmar-electricity-rates-soar-next-month.html

However, the rate of electricity for the business is going to increase just merely 8.7% from 115 kyat per unit to 125 kyat per unit for up to 500 units consumption.
It is really unfair for the household to cover for the loss of business so the household have really become victim of the currently wrongly elected thief government.

125 kyat is equivalent to 8.26 cent US dollar which is much more expensive than the following richer and more developed countries;

Brunei = 0.72 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for up to 600 kWh

China = 4 or 4.5 cent US dollar for unlimited kWh

Abu Dhabi = free electricity for limited usage

Egypt = 0.9 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for up to 200 kWh and 1.35 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for between 201 kWh to 350 kWh

India = electricity pricing starts at 0.1 cent US dollar per 1 kWh

Iraq = 2.5 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for up to 500 kWh

Russia = electricity pricing starts at 2.4 cent US dollar per 1 kWh

Myanmar is a gas producer country and even the money Myanmar earned from selling gas to China was used to fund the building of the capital city called Nay Pi Taw unnecessarily.
So Myanmar have lots of gas and the gas should benefit the people too and should not be manipulated for personal gain which is actually a treason.
Probably less than a third of the output of gas produced in Myanmar should be able to fully provide all the required electricity for the whole country.
So everyone in Myanmar is entitled of free electricity generated with Myanmar gas.

No one own the gas in Myanmar but the people.
Since the current wrongly elected government don't work for the people anymore who elected her so this shameless government should resign immediately to account for her betryal of the people's trust.

And even in death, her father Aung San wouldn't recognize a shameless traitor like her, yeah she is a foreigner, an Englishman's woman and her offsprings, all Englishmen, don't know why she's still here for, creating trouble after trouble for Myanmar people, raising beef price as much as 80% by removing cattle export ban, raising the property tax unlogically as much as 30% from 3 or 10%, raising the price of old car as much as 200% by banning the old car import foolishly, ripping off 15% additional advanced tax unfairly for purchasing a new car, impose 13% tax on rent of hostel used by poor Myanmar worker (don't have a bit of sympathy to the burden of poor people, Dracula's Su Kyi, going to raise the electricity fee as much as 125% starting from next month (going against all Myanmar people at full speed, undertaker Su Kyi), !!!

No one want this Englishwoman, no more house arrest, wasting the tax money of Myanmar people, simply deport her to England this time so peace, fairness and justice would be returned to the Myanmar prople after her disappearing.

Government have to perform its job but instead not only is irresponsible but also create trouble after trouble for poor people such as 1.cancelling the cattle export ban which raises the price of beef as much as 80% from 10000kyat per viss to 18000kyat per viss but fortunately China right now ban the cattle import at the border to alleviate the burden of poor Myanmar 2.sale tax of property imposed by the current government is seemingly the heaviest in histGovernmentory so almost all sales of properties are being done under the table without going through the burdensome legal route so government is losing tax money for property sale instead of earning tax money through its inhumane property tax policy. 4.living cost must be affordable according to the local condition and the tourist ripoff price including beer, restaurant food, hotel, etc must be punished and ended to the extent of permit confiscation to return a dignity lifestyle to the people. 5. Alternative cheaper transport called private car offered by Grab in Malaysia should be allowed in Myanmar to benefit the poor people who think taxi is too expensive for their budget, anyway, bunch of broken taxi in Myanmar is not qualified to be taxi according to international standard and Myanmar people are paying more than they, broken taxi are worth, very unfair comparing to Bangkok taxi. 6.corruption is so deep rooted in government so nothing should be accomplished even with a good plan so the government must purge corruption once and for all without mercy even if it cost many lives to sacrifice throughout government departments or else democracy would certainly short live in Myanmar as merely as a shameful legend.

There is no or rarely electricity outage during the previous administration under Thein Sein government during 2016.

Right now Yangon, even the city center has been turned into a dark forest due to no electricity.
Congratulations to the naive Su Kyi government where most important positions such as the position of the Yangon chief minister was taken by a former political unqualified prisoner who has been expanding not only the Yangon city but also multiplying the industrial zones unlike never seen before but ignores to produce the required electricity to support his Yangon expansion and instead misuses the already occupied electricity for Yangon to support his stupid expansion so Yangon people who enjoyed 24 hours before 2016 have no stable light in their house in the city center anymore. Shameful beyond belief internationally!

A chief minister from other region illegally earned as much as free home and swimming pool just for providing a permit to a business.
So creating a lot of unnecessary industrial zones and expanding city in Yangon would require lots of his approval for endless permits so he seems no longer content with broken cars provided by the government and requested repeatedly since last year for million US dollar to purchase new cars for YCDC, seemingly his ill-gained money can't be revealed in the light or else probably farrari might be under his feet now but he seems to be content with new cars made from US, not farrari anymore probably only in his mind though.

For the poorest country like Myanmar, even people drive secondhand cars proudly so should the out of touch YCDC should consider to purchase the similar secondhand cars from abroad which cost as merely as 1000 US dollar at abroad, almost 20 times cheaper than Myanmar which is also one of the great corruption in Myanmar happening under the current government. Hhm!

Myanmar could fully supply 30% of electricity requirement during 2016 and now the in-prudent Su Kyi said to cover 50% of electricity in Myanmar by the end of this year.
But Myanmar seems to have no capacity to supply more than 30% of electricity requirement in Myanmar now so It seems it is just the beginning of the worsening electricity outage in Myanmar.

If Su Kyi had a brain, she should be prudent before expanding the electricity coverage in Myanmar unless she had additional source of sufficient electricity to back up her new electricity coverage.

Dark city of Yangon has really become a laughing stock internationally, are the current government ashamed of this shameful achievement so far?
all the new electricity coverage initiated by Sunday Kyi should be scrapped to ensure of the restoration of the glorious 24 hours power supply to the Yangon city center again.

Since Myanmar is so poor, the government should invite foreign firms to own, build and operate a hydropower, solar, wind turbine planes on a lease hold, the longer lease the cheaper power rate to benefit the people and confirm the electricity charge which is no more than the current rate.

Electricity pricing in Myanmar is 2.6 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for usage of between 101 to 200 kWh and 3.3 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for usage above 300 kWh.
So electricity pricing in Myanmar is more expensive than the following more developed countries.

Bahrain = 0.79 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for up to 3000 kWh

Brunei = 0.72 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for up to 600 kWh

China = 4 or 4.5 cent US dollar for unlimited kWh

Abu Dhabi = free electricity for limited usage

Egypt = 0.9 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for up to 200 kWh and 1.35 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for between 201 kWh to 350 kWh

India = electricity pricing starts at 0.1 cent US dollar per 1 kWh

Iraq = 2.5 cent US dollar per 1 kWh for up to 500 kWh

Russia = electricity pricing starts at 2.4 cent US dollar per 1 kWh

Power shortage in Myanmar has nothing to do with the people but the root cause of the power shortage is due to the mismanagement of inability governments starting from the military government since 1962 to the current democracy government.
If enough hydropower plants were built since 1962 during the military government, there would be not only more than enough free electricity for the whole nation, generated through the hydropower plants but also Myanmar would earn lots of money from selling the surplus electricity to the surrounding countries.

Government should take full responsibility for shirking its duty for so long since 1962 so consequently the sincere people should not be burdened and the electricity price should not be increased but Myanmar people would not object of their right of the reduction of the electricity price to the level enjoyed by cheaper countries above such as Egypt, Brunei, Abu Dhabi, etc.

Ruling class are more than rich enough not only in Myanmar but also on the international stage so they should be content with what they have now without any additional covet from the country resources and should be reasonable as well.
Consequently, the profits from all resources of Myanmar such as gas, timber, jade, etc should be allocated to subsidize, benefit and alleviate the pressure of the Myanmar people but not to any business by making the living cost of internal and external such as price of hotel, restaurant, etc much more affordable and very cheap, no tourist ripoff price please, this is Myanmar not a foreign country, in order to make Myanmar people lead a content and happy life.

Also the unfair, terrible corruption should be uprooted throughout the government departments and all people must be force-transfered to different departments for the purpose of purging of bribery more efficiently so that such as of an application of ID card legally in Myanmar should not take more than 30 years to apply but no approval until so far for not bribing enough, very sorrowful to still observe the backsliding status of Myanmar until now.

Beer in Yangon is a whopping 6 times more expensive than Vietnam.
A glass of beer in Vietnam restaurants is 16 cents US dollar but in Yangon costing as much as a whopping 100 cents or 1 US dollar.

Cheapest beer in the world – ‘bia hoi’ in Vietnam (16 cents a glass)
https://www.priceoftravel.com/238/cheapest-beer-in-the-world/

The meat portion of a set meal in Yangon restaurants is also less than a third of what is offered in Malaysia even though you pay almost the same price for the set meal.
How come Yangon pays as much as the same price for a set meal comparing to the richer, more developed Malaysia and even wore the meat portion of a set mail in Malaysia is much more as much as 3 times comparing the inhumane ripoff Yangon restaurants. No one, even no tourist enjoys the ripoff meal in Yangon restaurants and tourists frequently mentioned of generous meal portion in Malaysia which cost no more than the ripoff meal of Yangon restaurants, very shameful indeed.

Ripoff for food and drink in Yangon is outrageous beyond belief since Myanmar was turned into a democracy system.

Since democracy in Myanmar, most people can't afford hyper-inflated food and drink at the usual restaurants though it costs nothing much to prepare a feast at home.
The problem is that there is no protection for the interest of consumer especially over the price of food and drink unlike the responsible and caring government in Vietnam, Malaysia, etc so consequently food businesses such as restaurants, beer producers rip off consumer as much as 6 times comparing to Vietnam, etc.

Muslim are forbidden to drink beer so beer price in Muslim countries such as Malaysia is more expensive than Vietnam which is normal but it should not be taken as a model to be copied into Myanmar such as bringing in the ripoff Singapore car license system into Yangon, tiny Singapore is as big as a dog house in the backyard in Myanmar. But Myanmar is not a Muslim country so Myanmar beer should not as expensive as the price in Muslim countries and instead Myanmar beer price in Yangon should be cheaper than the more developed Vietnam. Please give the poor Myanmar consumers a break.

Vietnam is a more developed country comparing to Myanmar so the wage is Vietnam is also higher than Myanmar.
So the food and drink price in Yangon should be cheaper than Vietnam but it turns out the opposite unfortunately for both food and drink for the unfortunate Myanmar citizen, paying higher in Yangon than Vietnam incredibly.

The problem of higher food and drink price in Yangon is because of the inaction of the current irresponsible government.

According to the minimum wage or income of Myanmar citizen, the government should immediately adjust, set and also constantly monitor the appropriate price for food and drink by not allowing the greedy restaurants for outrageous ripoff out of control. Outrageous price of food and drink should be fined heavily just like in Malaysia where a drink seller was fined heavily as his Milo drink was expensive.

Beef price jumping a whopping 60% during the last 2 years under the current government from 10,000 kyat/viss to the current 16,0000kyat/viss is unacceptable and inconsiderate for the poor Myanmar so the ban practice of cattle export under the previous military government should be continued to benefit the poor people during the process of the nation development.

The price of chicken in Yangon is very expensive comparing to foreign countries such as US, China, etc.
Myanmar is the poorest country even in Asia, the truth so should have a healthy market for the benefit of poor consumers. For a healthy market, manipulation should not be allowed in the market, especially for the most consumed chicken.
No one can beat the price of chicken breast meat from US which probably should be cheaper than the chicken breast meat in Yangon as much as 4 times or more.

For the sake of the benefit and interest of consumers in Yangon as well as to restore a healthy market in Myanmar without manipulation and bribery, government should import the chicken breast from US as soon as possible which would certainly give a better life to the 90% cash-strapped Myanmar citizen.

Yangon is worst than a war-torn city and should not be qualified as a city as electricity is not provided most of the day.

Even worse the unbearable around-the-clock hot weather and strong humidity of Yangon is not a place for human to live as this place would certainly shorten the lifespan.

The current total electricity production in Myanmar is just 4500 megawatts. The amount is much less than the expected amount coming from the suspended Myitsone hydropower project which is going to generate a whopping 6000 megawatts.

Electricity generated from hydropower is as much as free unlike electricity generated from the gas which is wasteful.

Anyway, the government should be responsible for neglecting its duty for so long or else there should have been more than enough hydropower to provide more electricity than what the whole nation needed.

Nay Pi Daw should also suffer the power outage no less than Yangon so as to understand the hardship of no electricity which might help to adjust the mental attitude of the ruling echelons behind the curtain to drop their hardball politics for the sake of the interest and benefit of the future of the nation.

No problem to cancell all projects coming from China except this essential Myitsone hydropower project which would certainly help the nation going forward much more than what we should be able to imagine now. The benefit outweighs the danger, don't you think?

Anyway, China is not like India which swallowed up the whole Sikkim nation alive in 1975 and India's next target might be Bhutan where the foreign affairs of Bhutan have been unfairly manipulated by India now and then probably maybe Nepal or Myanmar so establishing good relation with the harmless China is even much more important than before now and Nepal seems to be well aware of the danger from India so currently expedite good relationship with China unlike never seen before in Nepal history.

Stray-control project

https://www.mmtimes.com/news/stray-control-project-kicks-yangon.html

It is not a time for daydreaming of a perfect world where your pet dog would be loyal to you without eating you after your death alone with your pet dog and sadly the truth is that your pet dog will certainly eat you after your death alone in your home, even does't matter dog food available in full in bowl because pet dog prefers human meat over dog food. Stray dog, far much more dangerous than pet dog so your wild wild scary imagination might come into realization in half a million stray dog roaming Yangon city on the black street where no street light due to power outage and a small group of happy aggressive stray dogs of at least 7 in number searching for food hungrily and you alone on the street at the middle of the night.

Anyway, Yangon is not a city for human-eater wolf-descending stray dogs to rule the night resulting people not daring to go out at night. Yangon is no longer safe because of the accumulating stray dogs which are as much as half a million in number now unlike never seen in human history.

As much as rabies is a life threatening killer but also the safety not to turn yourself as a stray dog's food at the middle of the night is also far more important.

Half million strong stray dogs have to go out of Yangon to the slaughter house to return safety and rabies-less environment to the Yangon residents.

Don't mind the WVA and WVS keeping the half million Yangon stray dogs in their beds and house but not at the public space such as on the street, etc and they must be fully responsible for all the death or injuries resulting from bites of the rabies infested stray dog they're going to keep. Sure, Yangon residents wouldn't bother either all people or many people at WVA and WVS were dead of rabies infection consequently because they're fully deserved because their senseless contribution to the dog world and the Yangon residents wouldn't miss them at all happily.

Unlike Germany, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Brazil, UK, Amsterdam, Hong Kong etc, prostitute is illegal in Myanmar and if you're caught in the act, you would be imprisoned.
The current government is not acting like a democracy country but even worse than the reign of the previous military era where the prostitute's client was not punished being caught in the act though the prostitute was ill-treated. There is no human right in this current fake democracy government so no human right consequently for prostitute and her client.
Sex is like food and water and it's a normal thirst for human being around the world and it should not be exaggerated as an act of crime. Too much stress and pressure upon normal people for a normal activity would not benefit the country and instead create lots of crazy and abnormal people which would be a disadvantage for the nation so we should instead appreciate prostitute for lifting the spirit and alleviate the stress of people in need.
Making people happy and content within an acceptable boundary with the consideration of the need of human being would benefit the government and the whole nation certainly.

Heatwave in Yangon as much as 42 degree Celsius which can half cook an egg, is really unbearable.

Worst of all, there is frequent outage of electricity like 4 times a day in Yangon and each outage can last as much as 5 hours.

So can imagine living in Yangon is like being steamed alive in hell.

No aircon and fan in restaurant because of electricity outage and sweating is really unbearable while having a meal not to mention walking outside burning weather.

Rabies outbreak is not well taken cared of in Yangon so stray dogs are roaming the city in strong number by over a hundred of thousands according to the estimate in news.
So encountering a rabies infested stray dog while walking in Yangon may leave you with only 12 months to live on this world.

Landlord ripoff in Yangon is the worst in the world which ever never happen in UK, US, China, etc.

Flats or apartments are not sold at a cheaper price considering of paying a monthly fee to the obsolete landlord who already made massive profit selling many apartments one after another on her worst-quality building. Though making more profit than what the apartment is worth, the landlord never quench shamelessly to further rip off the apartment owner with the unlawful monthly rental fee as well as 2% percentage ripoff from apartment sale. The apartment owner is no different to a prisoner to a landlord and this is exactly where the government must exercise power to return justice to the apartment owner and strip absolutely the landlord's obsolete right of the ownership of the land where the apartment building has already been built.

So it is time for the government to annul landlord's land ownership of the already-built flat or apartment building and distribute the land ownership equally among the apartment owners for fairness's sake.

YCDC is still not following the government order strictly to clean the the roadside stalls.

So probably 2 weeks after removing the roadside stalls by YCDC at Myaung Gyi street, Ye Kyaw, Pazundaung township, Yangon , today almost all roadside stalls encroach its usual places again and open almost all of its roadside stalls at the same time today which seriously blocks both cars and people walking on the small Myaung Gyi street .

Without corrupt people assistance in YCDC, the roadside stalls shall never dare to risk the fine of 500,000 kyat to reopen the roadside stalls.

YCDC is so far the most corrupt government agency that all Yangon local are aware of. There is no place where there is no corrupt people from YCDC popping up uninvited to rip off people just even for a minor internal decoration of a flat which is not actually required to report YCDC according to law, however people from YCDC always take advantage of the local of their lack of knowledge of the law regarding the the minor decoration within flat.

As mentioned earlier, corruption is quite deep rooted in YCDC to the extent of YCDC is hopeless.

In order to execute the government order efficiently such as of removing the roadside stalls through YCDC, the government urgently need to investigate YCDC of corruption and jail all corrupt people as well as fire lazy people not carrying out the government order efficiently in YCDC and also immediately need to place hardworking people of principle and integrity with no record of corruption as leaders and monitorship in all departments of YCDC and then in no time the street will be safe for both car and people walking around the clock.
Speaker abuse coming from peddler and religious sects such as Muslim, Buddhist, etc should be banned to return peace to Yangon resident who have been suffering the speaker abuse throughout their lives unlike the western democratic countries so the government should come out with a law banning the speaker abuse with a fine no less than the fine of the roadside stall blocking.
Development starts with restoring the quality of life to the Yangon resident which the government so far does a splendid job.
The restaurant food should be affordable to the Yangon resident so the government should assign a team to investigate the food price in restaurants frequently and fine or remove license all the restaurants which overprice its food and drink. The ripoff from the food court of the Yuzana plaza is outrageous so some action should be taken against the food court of Yuzana plaza.
Human dignity must be sustained so ripoff from food and drink must be abstained from all side even from the military and the price of a can of Myanmar beer must be restored to where it was before, 500 kyat. Or else what is remained for the poor Yangon resident other than poverty? No further ripoff for food and drink please...

The happiness of 90% people should be above all in the mindset of the government where as much as 56% people still have no opportunity to find job. The 56% people don't mind how much they get paid whether or not much much lower than the minimum wage as long as not being destitute and have food on the table. Food is more important than face for the 56% destitute people whereas upside-down is true for the government not caring the agony of the 56% destitute people.

It is not right for the government to harm and punish people for its own selfish interest.
The government should understand its only responsibility which is to serve the interest of people righteously and fairly just like the current government in Malaysia where the price of restaurant food in Kuala Lumpur is cheaper than Yangon INCREDIBLY, where a lot of ripoff Yangon tiny worthless restaurants mushrooming without being monitored and controlled for fair food price by the neglectful government unlike Malaysia government.

Traffic congestion in Yangon can be temporarily eliminated by implementing toll fee collection for travelling between different cities in Yangon until toll free express bridges linking cities in Yangon are available

Free license should be issued for imported new car and the price of imported new car should be inspected comparing with the oversea market to ensure no ripoff and cheaper price in Myanmar market.

Ripoff in the second hand car market is so serious under the current government unlike the previous government so the second hand car market must be investigated to eliminate the ripoff to ensure the price of second hand car is the same to the oversea market.

Innocent People should not be punished for the mismanagement of government and instead government should serve the people not bringing the example of worse ripoff from around the world such as from the tiny land Singapore and so on.
Just Yangon region is as much 50 times bigger than the whole Singapore country so whoever compared Singapore to Myanmar or Yangon is unworthy and should be punished by removing the culprit from his government position.

“The government has said that it wants to develop international-standard industrial zones because the existing zones lack infrastructure. But if the existing industrial zones can be managed and made to carry out their functions, there is no need to construct new industrial zones,” said Daw Kyi Pyar, MP from Kyauktada township.

No need to expand the Yangon city as the Yangon city is already very enough and even few resource Myanmar have may not even be enough to manage the existing Yangon city along with its industrial zones, let alone to imagine to expand Yangon city.
So what the motive of wasteful chief minister attempting to expand Yangon city is for, unnecessarily..His greedy pocket is not yet full.. he should be investigated for corruption.

Myanmar is a well-known ripoff country, thanks to the sick Suu Kyi leadership, relapsing to the old day of monopoly previously under the military leadership.
A brand new car can be used for 8 years at abroad and can be sold in the second hand car market in Yangon for a price that is higher than the price of the brand new car.
People realize now that Thein Sein government is much more better and fairer than the sick Suu Kyi government where endless repeatation of ripoff after ripoff people suffering.
Even the ripoff that foreign businesses can't stand so businesses such as Samsung and so on and airlines such as Airasia, Kathmandu or so and so on stop investing in Myanmar altogether after discussing business plans with this sick government.

All Meat in the Yangon markets are injected with unhealthy tap water as much as the weight of the meat so all butchers earn not only profit but also rip consumer off a whopping double price for each meat sale. The injected water will be released when cooking the water-injected meat so consumer didn't get what they paid for and only gets half meat after cooking, consumer are simply CHEATED openly now without being looked after by this out of touch Suu Kyi government for almost 2 years already.
This issue of water-injected meat didn't happen under the previous Thein Sein government.
All kind of Dishonesty is what the Yangon local have been experiencing under this out of touch Suu Kyi government.
For the sake of people she seemingly fighting for before, Suu Kyi must sack all seemingly corrupt and useless ministers including the sick chief minister under her government and replace all of them with much better ministers and chief minister previously employed under the previous Thein Sein government. Or else Myanmar really have no future with the current chief/ministers under the Suu Kyi government.

According to the news below, chief minister was very irresponsible not attending his duty by failing to show up at the serious Hlaing Thaya landfill fire raging for 5 days until his boss Suu Kyi intervinced and seems very corrupt as well visiting the crony Tay Za-owned Kandawgyi Palace very early in the morning proactively which was on fire previously.
Not only this hopeless chief minister but also another minister was famous for wearing 0.1 million US dollar watch in the news before.
So it seems all minister under this out of touch Suu Kyi government attempting to dig gold where opportunities available, are hopeless for the Myanmar future.
Right now chief minister is busy attempting to dig gold and expand Yangon city whereas not being dutiful even within the existing Yangon city, almost no existing municipal service in Yangon now comparing to previously provided by much more efficient Thein Sein government.
Chief minister is also seemingly the greatest thief attempting to confiscate 80% of the land where he is planning to expand Yangon city so he is much worse than the previous military government where no such 80% of land confiscations happened at all. Sooner or later the chief minister would end up in jail for this inhumane crime of 80% land confiscation.
The price of used cars in Yangon has increased almost twice unreasonably since under this out of touch Suu Kyi government, whereas the price of used car was getting much more cheaper gradually under the reasonable Thein Sein government.
56% of Myanmar population is jobless and instead of attracting foreign investment with the attraction of cheapest wage in Asia. This out of touch Suu Kyi government raises a whopping 33% minimum wage unlike never seen before in history so Myanmar wage seems higher than more productive Bangladesh now. Congratulations, Myanmar factories are preparing to move to Bangladesh where worker are much more productive than Myanmar worker and the wage is also lower than Myanmar.
Mismanagement one after another under this out of touch Suu Kyi government would be a history burden not only now but also to the future generations.

In the news below, the foreign investment is being bullied by both its ungrateful traitor worker and unreasonable central arbitration council.
To the extent the owner of this foreign factory CLOSED his own factory out of DESPERATION, no wonder no more foreign investment is coming to Myanmar.
The worker in Myanmar is constantly mentioned as the most ungrateful and non-productive in Asia even uncomparable to the much better Bangladesh where the pay is much lower than Myanmar and the Bangladesh worker are grateful to the foreign boss unlike the worse treatment suffered by foreign boss in Myanmar where even a prison penalty is available to the foreigner boss for breaking labor law which is even never unheard of before in all other countries, Myanmar is STUPIDLY clever.
Myanmar is already truly a terrible HELL for foreign investment, not to mention just to lose all the cost of investment but also to risk being forced to sit in the prison cell.
So both TROUBLEMAKERS, labour union and obsolete central arbitration council must be REMOVED for good or else the remaining foreign factories would sooner or later close and run away one after another just like this Korea factory.

The price of a meal that used to be 60 Myanmar currency at year 1999 has been raised to as much as 3000 Myanmar currency now so the Myanmar currency has been actually devalued as much as 50 times since the year 1999.

It is noteworthy of the HYPERINFLATION Myanmar went through during the last 2 decades since 1999 and history likes repeatation especially in Myanmar so there is a highest chance HYPER-INFLATION probably may re-visit Myanmar again sooner than you may expect in the near future.

However, Myanmar currency is not yet devalued as much as 50 times when exchanging to the US dollar until now since 1999. The exchange rate of US dollar to Myanmar currency at the Myanmar black market at the year 1999 was like 1 US dollar to 1100 Myanmar Kyat. So the current exchange rate is unreasonably unfair.

The problem with Myanmar is that there is no free market rate for money exchange in Myanmar until now and the current government still micromanage to unfairly define how much the Myanmar currency worth against the US dollar without following the international norm of free market for money exchange.

As soon as Suu Kyi is gone in 2020, it is expected the value of Myanmar currency would be deprecated at least a 100% or much much more to gradually reflect to the international market rate of money exchange according to the doctrine of democracy for good and fairness.

McDonald’s, seeking to win back customers lost after it abandoned its popular but profit-squeezing Dollar Menu in 2013, in January jumped back in with the launch of a $1, $2, $3 value menu.

That menu includes $1 any size soft drinks and cheeseburgers, $2 small espresso drinks and Bacon McDouble hamburgers, and $3 Happy Meals and classic chicken sandwiches.

Not all of those watching the proceedings were supportive of the labor activists, though. One man hopped along beside the marchers for about a block mockingly repeating their chants back at them while performing a sort of dance.

A street vendor proclaimed to the demonstrators: “If you don’t like how much you are getting paid, go work somewhere else!” She then turned to her neighboring fruit seller to say: “They act like they are being robbed or something.”

Labour union is indeed a troublemaker to almost 60% of the total Myanmar jobless population in creating endless inflation by demanding to raise salary constantly because inflation is kind of death sentence to the jobless who are not lazy to work but Myanmar really has no job to offer to the jobless. Whom to blame for the hardship of the jobless? Indeed it is the Suu Kyi Government. Instead of attracting as much investments with the only advantage Myanmar have which is the lowest wage, this inconsiderate Suu Kyi government starts destroying the advantage of lowest wage to attract investments but instead not only raise wage but also raise wage like employee are lottery winner by raising 33% of the current minimum wage unreasonably unlike never seen before in any part of this world or in history which shall certainly drive out existing investments in Myanmar to abroad like Bangladesh, etc where wage is much cheaper than Myanmar.
The brain of Suu Kyi is so strange standing with mass greedy, non-productive employee/benefactor but punish employer like employer owe both brain-damaged Suu Kyi and non-productive employee.
Suu Kyi is indeed accountable to the inflation hardship of the jobless of almost 60% of the total Myanmar jobless population and also people sacked from their job because investments shut down factories due to the inconsiderate endless jumping minimum wage.

Pure electric car (new car) in China is much more cheaper than rusty old used car in Myanmar.
The backsliding nature of the current government led by powerless Suu Kyi is incredible as her soundless out-of-touch policies has been encouraging to raised the price of rusty old used car in the local market unlike never seen before in other markets in all other countries, even under the era of wise president Thein Sein.
The future belongs to electric car so fuel car should be banned driving in Myanmar, not allowing for home use except for business truck and bus.

The price of used car used to be below 100k under the previous government and was expensive comparing to the oversea market.
Ridiculously, the price of used car has been raised at least one time under the current Suu Kyi government so the price of used car is as much expensive as the new car ridiculously.
The price of used car in Yangon should be comparable to the similar city in oversea market or else Suu Kyi must step down for having no ability to account fairness to the Yangon resident

Yangon traffic congestion is the reason this bitchy government attempting to choke and slaughter the car market endless since it took over the reign.
However nothing seems accomplish so far with the same result of traffic congestion with the stupid policies came up by the the no brain politicians of the current government with the background of being housed in prison most of their life.
There are lots of solution to resolve the traffic congestion and no need to ask 30/60 million for car license unless you're bitches because it is not affordable to poor Burmese. Tax for new car is so high so should be reduced as much as to 0% as under the previous government and license should be given for free for new car as new car is good for the country, not the disgraceful used car.
Solution for Yangon traffic congestion...
Why not build bridges over traffic congested area?
Only one-hand-drive car should be allowed or else it shall be dangerous, so why not ban all the right-hand-drive car right away from driving in Yangon?
Why not ban all car older than 10 years from driving in Yangon?
Anonymous on Apr 10, 2018:
The reason why used car price of Yangon is so expensive is because of the bitchy government under Suu Kyi no longer issue license to new car of Yangon.
Without license for new car, poor Burmese have no option but to purchase used car which were imported as used car under the previous government without restriction but importation of used car is now banned under the current bitchy government. So the limited used car in the market without further supply due to the importation ban under this brainless government, the price of used car hyper-jump surpassing the price of new car which is never unheard of in other countries and incredibly unlogical, only that insane Suu Kyi can accomplish. Congratulations, Suu Kyi, you are severely abhorred by your people due to the burden and difficulties you deliberately and constantly brought upon your people as well as becoming the greatest abomination to the world due to your sarcastic and foolish response to the world media with your unnecessary arrogant manner

Hope AD 2020 year is over where that tyrant Su Kyi must step down so that the price of used car will be restored to become lower than a quarter of the price of new car now as used to be under the previous government.
Ripoff under Su Kyi is the worse under any democracy and is not sustainable.

Grab fare in Yangon seems to be the most expensive in Asia even more expensive than Kuala Lumpur.
The culprit of Grab Yangon being most expensive is due to the current government for not allowing Yangon car owners to provide cheap rides to the Yangon residents unlike the Kuala Lumpur.
So the original inspiration of Grab to provide affordable rides to the mass has been crippled by this out of touch current government led by out of touch, arrogant Su Kyi.
And to be able to continue operation in Yangon, Grab bows to the pressure of the current government and only provide Taxi rides to the poor Yangon residents, not an alternative cheaper rides directly provided by car owners.
Out of touch micromanagement by Su Kyi shall force not only her people but also her part to kick her out of the current office sooner or later.

Budget hotel room rate of Yangon is much more expensive than Xian,Bangkok,Kuala Lumpur, etc and the quality and size of the room is also worse and smaller than Xian,Bangkok,Kuala Lumpur, etc.
The room rate should reflect the status of local economy or else tourist shall stay away from visiting Myanmar for ripoff and also the local who earns US$23+ a month shall not afford to stay even at the out of touch budget hotel room for more than 1 or 2 days.
Cheap is a blessing what the government can offer to her poor people where as much as 56% of the population is jobless. Raising salary by 33% by the current government is kind of a great curse to job desperate people because this resulting job cutting and factory closure. Salary should be returned to where it was before cheaply to encourage foreign investment with the cheapest attraction until 80% of the population is fully employed.
Or else S.Kyi government can beg foreign countries as usual to borrow money to pay off the salary increase of the employee of the government.

It is inhumane to see very old cars being much more expensive than new cars this never happened during the previous T.Sein government.
It is really undemocratic to price 20-30 years old cars much more expensive than new cars.
To eradicate bad traffic jam, S.Kyi government should follow Nepal by banning all vehicles older than 20 years or to achieve smoothe traffic by banning all vehicles older than 10 years old. After banning, Yangon license must be issued as normal as the previous government.
Or else the kind of previous government is a better choice than the current government
