Ah Longs

I was reading this piece of article on loan-sharks also known as, ‘ah long’.

I don’t like what I’ve read!
Like many of us, I too have friends and relatives who were (some still) being victimized by Ah Longs. At some point I even helped to pay-off the accumulated debts on behalf of my friend and relative. The interest of loan is ridiculously high and it accumulates daily.
And if you don’t pay up…
Anyway some victims would normally resort to extreme measures to resolve their predicament. They can range from selling themselves to suicide.
Its a sad and disturbing situation but who am I to judge? I’m just glad that I’m not in that position.
I guess the recession is now taking its toil on us.
Take care everybody and be kind to one another. After all, life is too short to be wasted on misery.
