    Now can anyone please explain to me why it seems Indonesia is the only one with the balls to shoot at the Dragon??? That is some really touchy stuff going on in your all's sea...

    Base on UN standard, for those living below $1.70(Sing$) are considered as living below poverty line.
    Our standard those household income $1800/pax will receive financial assistance from the govt. About $60/pax per day.
    Are we poor?

    Sad to say....

    Many so call leaders want to be rich and leave the people poor. The term is called corruption.

    She is stupid. She should have given them all to the poor to cat walk in the streets of Manila slums.

    She could have trained some of her people to make shoes and she would have been way ahead.
