    His boss got spanked by the Sultan. Probably he's upset that the Sultan didn't bother contacting himself.

    Sale prices for items such as cooking oil, chicken, and gasoline are controlled by the government. I believe the government then hands back money to the middle men involved in this business. That's what he calls "subsidised".

    There is a 2.50 1kg plastic bag oil sold in sundry shop that we don't normally consume cos it just looks disgusting. But you can't argue that it benefits didn't trickle down, such as cheaper KFC sold by the road side. Petrol has always been subsidized by the govt. Hence the low cost of living.

    I watched the video and only noticed he was upset most likely he got shit on by his rich friends whose friends were applying. I checked Dept of stat data and inflation in the past 20 years compound to around 50%

    Anyway I think it's a game for them to force subjective approval into their hands so that they can get some grease. Shri do keep the business running because that might be an option since he said they welcome business Visa

    One day after this video was uploaded has the responsible minister announced that there are (again) changes to the requirements for existing MM2H holders who wish to renew their visa. Out of the original ten requirements are now only two remaining:

    Note that if indeed only two requirements remain it would imply that there is no monthly income requirement, nor a fixed deposit requirement. It sounds a bit strange to me that those requirements would now completely vanish for renewing an MM2H visa.

    However, none of this information is yet available on the website of the immigration department. I guess they can't keep up with the almost daily changes to the program.

    In case anyone is still interested:

    According to this news article, based on the responsible minister's reply in parliament, have 267 people applied for MM2H since the introduction of the new requirements:
    https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/ca...m2h-programme/
    The article does not specify how many of those applications have been approved.
    About 5.5 times as many people (1461) have left MM2H during the same time period.
