Book Review: Escape And Unwind With ‘Chasing The Italian Dream’ By Jo Thomas

Published

on

In Jo’s edition this time, Chasing the Italian Dream, we are transported to Italy, where our main character Lucia is returning to see her Nonno and Nonna. The story is about Lucia, a hardworking lawyer in Wales, who is aiming for a promotion that she hopes to get.

Soon, she took a well-earned break at her grandparents’ place in Southern Italy where there’s sunshine, lemon trees, and her nonna’s mouth-watering cooking that instantly makes her feel at home.

All was going well for Lucia until she learned that her grandfather was retiring from the beloved family pizzeria and will be selling it off. As if the thought of someone else taking over the business wasn’t enough, Lucia was in for another surprise–that person is her ex-husband, Giacomo! This was terrible news for Lucia which made her rethink her decision of what she wants from life. Will it be the chance to carry on the family tradition and live her dream life?

Lucia is a character that is determined and instantly likable. I admired how she gathered women together to challenge the male pizzaiolo tradition and the usage of only locally sourced materials. A lot of characters were given new chances and fresh starts, which was inspiring to witness; it just goes to show that we are never too old to make a significant difference in our lives; sometimes all we need is something to open our eyes to possibilities.

I also like how the romance in this book did not overpower the story. The flow was there but it kept me anxious in guessing what’s about to happen next. Also, this book is really suitable for those who need a little help to get on their feet. Overall, the book has a very good write-up and a great storyline.

On a side note, If you’re on a diet, stay away from this book since it’s filled with tantalizing treats that left us with a frantic longing for pizza and desperate want to taste tiramisu! I enjoyed the competition to see whether the old traditional cuisine could defeat the new sophisticated pizza; I only wish I could have gotten a sneak look at the conclusion!

More Aid For The People After BKC – PM Ismail Sabri

Published

on

PUTRAJAYA, Sept 6 — With payments for the Special COVID-19 Aid (BKC) beginning to be paid out from today, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the government would channel more assistance to the people starting next month.

In a video conference with Bank Simpanan Nasional (BSN) staff from his residence in Petaling Jaya specifically to check on the BKC payment process, Ismail Sabri said BKC was among the assistance to help ease the burden of the people affected by COVID-19.

“I hope all the BKC payment processes planned by the Ministry of Finance run smoothly. Hopefully, nothing untoward happens that can cause delays and so on,” he said.

Ismail Sabri, who initiated the video conference because he is still undergoing self-quarantine since Aug 30 after he was confirmed to be in close contact with a COVID-19 case, also advised BSN staff to ensure BKC recipients who come to collect the aid complied with standard operating procedures (SOP) to prevent COVID-19 transmission.

Joining the video conference were Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz who was at BSN Putrajaya here and Deputy Finance Minister Mohd Shahar Abdullah who was at BSN in Bera, Pahang.

“Hopefully, what the government is giving today, although it may not be much, at least it can help reduce the people’s burden,” said Ismail Sabri, who also referred to information from Tengku Zafrul that more assistance was forthcoming for the people.

On Wednesday (Sept 1), Ismail Sabri announced that the BKC would be paid in stages with phase one payments credited from Sept 6 and expected to be completed by Sept 10, with funds amounting to RM3.1 billion already channeled to the relevant banking institutions for BKC payments.

The BKC is to assist the hardcore poor, B40 households with total monthly income of RM5,000 and below and senior citizens, as well as singles with a monthly income of RM2,500 and below, based on the eligibility criteria under the Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat (BPR 2021) aid package.

Those in the M40 group who report income tax with a total household income of RM5,001 to RM9,000 and RM2,501 to RM5,000 for singles are also eligible to receive BKC.

Under the BKC, hardcore poor category households will receive RM1,300; eligible senior citizens and singles (RM500). For the B40 category, households will receive RM800, eligible senior citizens and singles (RM200); while in the M40 category, households will receive RM250 and qualified senior citizens and singles (RM100).

Meanwhile, Tengku Zafrul said the government would distribute various forms of assistance that have been planned until the end of this year.

“The prime minister has agreed to proceed with these assistance,” he said.

Among the assistance that will be distributed by the government is Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat phase 3 amounting to RM2.32 billion which will be channeled at the end of this month and assistance for loss of income in October.

On the BKC payment process at BSN Putrajaya, Tengku Zafrul said it was handled well by the BSN staff.

Later, In a posting on his official Facebook page, Ismail Sabri said he had the opportunity to virtually review the BKC phase one payment process which would be implemented in stages through selected financial institutions involving the RM3.1 billion allocation.

He said that he had the opportunity to greet BKC recipients at several BSN branches including in Sabah, Sarawak, Kelantan, Perlis and Johor online to ensure the aid payment process went smoothly.

According to him, he also received a direct report from Tengku Zafrul who went down to the ground to do an inspection on the payment process at BSN Putrajaya while his deputy Mohd Shahar did the same at BSN Triang, Pahang.

Ismail Sabri said that he was informed that the Finance Ministry would facilitate distribution to the rural community by paying cash to BKC recipients who did not have a bank account.

“I hope this assistance can alleviate the burden of the ‘Malaysian Family’ affected by the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
