EPD: Economic Policy Discard
These four children have never eaten a grain of rice in their life.
Biscuits was their only food to starve off hunger.
Their father was jobless for months. Previously he worked at a workshop which closed down.
He has to borrow money from Ah Long to survive. Now he has to hide from them.
The children's mother ran away.
The children aged 4, 8, 9 and 10 had never been to school. Their father taught them Bahasa Malaysia and Mandarin at home.
Our economic policies could not take them into consideration as they are Chinese. The Chinese were classified as rich.
