From the first MCO announcement by this half sleep dimwit, we can see that he really don't have a brains, if he really got a brains, then an elephant can climb up a coconut tree and doing somersault, this is a pandemic, should just scrap the festive celebration nationwide, everyone celebrate at their own home. Bugger still allow bazaars to go on and visitation...i passed by a bazaars yesterday and all these traders don't bother to put on masks, some wear but i think, they need to go to a wear mask school to teach them the proper way to wear mask, these clown wear masks under their chin, some don't cover their nose, as though they are stronger than the virus, some stupid parents bring their young kids and they don't wear masks and just sit at a corner to play with the phone that their parents gave to them, to pacify them. Now announced MCO but can allow Bazaar and can allow visitation, that dimwit dumbass must high in ketum until he can't think straight, one second he said if going vaccination interdistrict need approval from police, another joker said no need. Like a bloody small kid, i have one suggestions, gather all brainless morons and put them all together in a concentration camp, put some serious infected Covid 19 patients and let these stupids stay with them, teach them a lesson. Can't they just forget about celebration and be good, just celebrate at the home. Won't die if cannot celebrate nationwide for this Covid19 sake.
