i was shock to see this headline in soc.cul.singapore site. for a moment i thought we are really in deep trouble. for as i read on, 'mas is losing big bugs again...in record sum...could be as much as rm$1 billion.
the letters 'rm' brought me some relief. in malaysian ringgits? can't be our mas, the monetary authority of singapore. indeed it was not. this is another mas, malaysian airline system. two identical initials that can be easily mistaken. one on solid ground, one in the clouds.
