For years, women has been fighting for civil rights on why they are paid less as compared to their male counterparts.
The wage gap is like if a man is earning a Ringgit, a woman will be earning RM0.77.
Now, I always believe that everyone should be paid the same. Whether you're man or woman as long as you can perform well in the job you do.
Keeping that in mind, two days ago, i came across a section in the Star (local newspaper)
Its one of the yearly Auto-City Carnival in Juru where they choose Miss Auto-City, and Mr Auto-City.
Now, the first thing that comes to mind in order to be Miss Auto-City would be,
The girl should know what is the car she is posing next with.
Know how to wash a car in the best "male fantasy" way.
Know how to act cute!
And of course, dress appropriate for the occasion.
At the end of the Auto-City show, finalists has to be chosen based on the above.
Miss Auto-City 2007 goes to a 19 year old student Lim Yen Nee this year. She won Rm2,000, skin care products worth RM 1,200 and vouchers worth RM3,100.
First Runner-up goes to Stefanie Chua, 19year old student. She won RM1,200 and vouchers worth RM2,300.
Third place goes to Penny Goh, 19year old student. She won RM500 and vouchers worth RM1,300.
Now, lets look at the how much the winners of Mr.Auto City 2007 get.
First place goes to an 18year old student Liew Kah Heng which charmed the judged. He takes home RM1,000 and vouchers worth RM1,000.
SEcond place takes home RM 800 and vouchers worth RM800.
Third place takes home RM500 and vouchers worth RM600
