... or fleecing the taxpayer of his money.
A friend brought this to my attention.
It appears that Terengganu is offering free second honeymoons to couples on the brink of divorce.
At a tender young age (okay fine, I was 20), I clerked in a law firm in my unyielding quest to earn more money and consequently take over the world.
The name of the law firm shall not be disclosed for fear of having them file defamation suits against me.
But one of my sacrosanct duties involved sending out letters and drafting out affidavits for various cases. Some of those cases included divorce matters.
It was then on one hazy and traffic-jam laden day where I discovered that divorce and relationships (and reconciliation) is not as simple as it sounds.
According to Malaysian procedure, counselling is necessary in a last ditch attempt to patch things up before signing on the dotted line.
Based on my observation, "counselling" did not offer a brighter future. Not for 2 people hell-bent on seeing the last of each other.
I suspect taking a 3 day holiday (together) isn't going to cut it either.
But the resort in which they will stay belongs to somebody. And that somebody - possibly a crony - stands to profit.
I believe that's what this brilliant idea of a second honeymoon is all about.
So much for family values.
