Re: Covid Vaccination for MM2Hers at the end of the queue?

Taking a loan as MM2Her

Re: MM2H Program in a limbo ???

Wow, that is quite a lot. How much you pay for the kWh over there? On the peninsula it is just 0.22 RM (for the first 200 kWh every month).

Re: Improving MM2H...New Qualifications and Benefits
