I am very upset with Proton. And I don't know what has happened to their engineers. It seems like proton is running out of new idea on how to improve their technology. They are always relying on other party (giant car company) like mitsubishi, citroen and volkswagon (unfortunately VW refused to collaborate).

What is in their mind actually? Its simple.. Learn from Hyundai, KIA, etc. Learn how they manage the company. Learn how they can increase their profit. Learn how they attract buyers and so on. Proton, you should come up with new model. SUV, MPV and so on so forth. Yesterday newspaper (utusan) claimed that proton will come out with tuned waja (turbocharged edition). Common la proton, are your engineer is sleeping or your management is having old and conservative thinking?? new model lah... not the upgrade one..

May be we don't know what exactly happened to you proton. But the point is, please do something to save your company. Reform your organization, come up with new model, new technology... What the hell are you doing with Lotus?? Buying the company and then losing you money managing that company? Without getting their technology? This is bad... too bad... If proton cannot attract our nation/malaysian car enthusiast, don't dream to attract international buyers laa...


Last night I watched TV3 Buletin Utama. One of the segment is about one family which their children were sick. It was kidney problem. And they need money to treat their children. So the father wanted to take out his EPF money. He did fill the application form. But no response from EPF for a long time. When TV3 find out why, the EPF told TV3 that the father has submitted an incomplete form. This is the EPF reason for the delay. Actually it was unacceptable. If EPF encounter any problems regarding the application form, they should inform the applicant. They should not act like EPF money is their own money. It was simple right? Just imagine how difficult the applicant family who need the money badly. I think government officer should take more responsibility when processing application form. Don't just take it for granted. If people submit the application form, they must have their own reason. Everybody makes mistakes, just correct it. But don't just blame them and throw it away. This is one of the example of how public sector worker doing their job. Sluggish and unreliable.
