December was a quiet month, in terms of writing. The news that police personnel are being asked to lose weight and get fit inspired my most recent column:
Truth be told, I don’t think I am the only Malaysian who has seen an overweight policeman and wondered if he would be able to give chase to suspects without having a heart attack.
In fact, I wonder if most Malaysians could give chase without having a heart attack. Rather than ridicule the police force for wanting to get in shape, I think we should support them, to the extent of trying to lose weight ourselves. Certainly, the police aren’t the only Malaysians who are overweight.
What do you think? Is it good that Malaysian policemen are being ask to lose weight and get fit? Will you join them in their endeavour?
