Dic/ Usages/ "We are spoilt"


Let's admit: we are spoilt, most of us. We don't think twice to express our discontent if the Internet does not work, or complain over the slightly inferior quality of accommodation, meals, or the comfort of the facilities in the world or continental events.

Here in Malaysia we are spoilt with choices of delicious foods. But let's face it─many of our favourites are not going to win many points in a "healthy food" contest.
