Malaysian owners of foreign-registered vehicles can buy RON95

By DHARMENDER SINGH

PUTRAJAYA: Drivers of Singapore-registered vehicles can purchase the cheaper RON95 petrol if they are Malaysian and can produce their MyKad as proof of citizenship, said Deputy Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Tan Lian Hoe.
Tan said the reason for the restriction on the sale of RON95 was to prevent foreigners from enjoying the benefits of higher fuel subsidy and, therefore, sale to foreign-registered vehicles was still allowed provided the owners were Malaysian.
She said there was a misconception among the public that petrol stations were illegally selling RON95 to foreigners when they witnessed vehicles bearing Singapore plates filling up with the cheaper fuel.
"It would be unfair to place a total ban on sales of RON95 to foreign-registered vehicles because there are many Malaysians working in Singapore and a number of them drive vehicles registered in the republic.
"That is why we told petrol station operators that they can sell RON95 to foreign-registered cars if the owner can produce the MyKad," she told a press conference here Monday, after launching the Handbook on Competition Policy and Law in Asean for Business.
She was commenting on recent media reports that drivers of foreign-registered vehicles have been seen purchasing RON95 petrol, despite the directive from the ministry to stop all such sales from August this year.
Tan said the ministry's enforcement teams were always on the ground conducting random checks but none of the stations had so far been caught selling the fuel to foreigners.

Horror at my daughter's kindie - part 1 : The Roslan Incident

I'm extremely disappointed by the experience i went thru today with the Genius Aulad Kota Damansara transport service provider. I have the impression that they are the best all this while & boy i was wrong. I was shocked that the complaint of level of service they've provided me, I'm being dismissed as disrespectful & was told that the are much happier for not having me as a customer. MasyaAllah. Makes me wonder who is the customer here. No word of apology from them & they actually threatened my daughters nursery teacher. Oh dear, what have i got myself into.
            Thankfully, GA Center Manager apologize of what had happened. I'd like her to be aware of what kind of service that Encik Roslan has given me when he is under stress.
