ANSWERS

Quiz #1

B. Type Mammoth – the designated Chief Monster of …

Quiz #2

C. NREB (Natural Resources and Environmental Board)

Reason:

This is the sole agency that functions – among others – as enforcer for prescribed (?) burning at oil palm plantations in the state… The months of June through September are the best months for its enforcement officers to make fatty wallets… Oops! Nay, I mean their travelling/outstation allowances, lah!

Quiz #3

C. I, III, IV

And the reasons for that…

  • Enforcement Officers – take the case of NREB, lah!
  • Timber camp workers – they extract the logs during daytime and go fishing during nighttime, since the water level is low during ’tis the (drought) season
  • Fire fighters – they have to (yup, have to) be in a standby mode – in case of fire incidence due to over-active prescribed burning of new oil palm plumptation… I’m wondering whether they’ll get any overtime payment for that…
