Two smalltime contractors were drinking coffee at a Coffee Shop in Inanam.

Contractor A: "Congratulations geng, you got a contract to build a 'balai raya', I heard?"

Contractor B: " Yeah - do you know that I had to walk uphill for a good one and a half hour to reach the spot where I am to build the 'balai raya'? "The road only reaches halfway, friend."

Contractor A: "Oh.......that's no problem, you can always hire the kampong folks to carry the building materials there or else, why not use local content?"

Contractor B: "You'er right, friend - think am gonna use local content......I'm building a log cabin instead .... he he he".

Both laugh sportingly at their predicament.

Contractor A: "You know I was awarded a project to build an iron bridge?"

Contractor B: "Why! that's great, you gonna be rich soon la ..."

Contractor A: "There is no road to that place la...I need a crane to place the iron planks you know?"

Contractor B: "You can hire the kampung folks lah or use local content?"

Both laugh sportingly at their predicament.
Where is the priority men?
