I met some Government officers the night Anwar won at PP.
Not that often I get off my fat butt & even more rare I meet our finest civil service ppl except when I HAVE to or NEED to.
Not that you realize by now, but I am the world's most politically correct person, so I keep to myself - the better to avoid detection of dissident bloggers.
BUT I wanted to gauge what the "others" were thinking of Anwar, & our dismal political tussles, so I swore to the host, on the life of my 1st born dog NOT to say a beep, & I was invited along.
Malaysians being Malaysians, in an exotic location '000000s of km away from home, it took us about 2 minutes to warm up. However it took me 1 minute before I opened my mouth. Now why are you surprised?
Me: Anwar won by 13,000 votes
Them: No. He won by 17,000 votes
Me (unable to hold my tongue): Ya. The people sure spoke loudly
Them: What more does it take to send them a message?
Wazat? I thought their bosses were in Putrajaya? Yes but they beg to differ. They were also the people. They also thought that there is no suitable candidates to be next PM but Naj? Uhhh....NO
Anwar? Uhhh.....maybe but who knows this mystery anymore?
Wifey: SAINT. All heads nodding rigorously
Sodomy? Hard to swallow that in-sai-ful story.
SIL? Daddy out, baby out but he sure bijak boy. Bijak tapi sombong, arrogant, cakap terlallll...uuu banyak
Kerisman? WHO? Hahaha
Muhi? Whisper whisper...we hear he is the most C of 'em all. REALLY?
The former Ironman? Hard to say great but good & will mourn his passing.
WAH! They actually think along the same lines as dissident bloggers.
There was only 1 little disturbing aspect last nite.
My new found kawans were unusually quiet when I declared I for one - am never going to declare myself Bangsa Cina because my family has lived in Malaysia for 80years & you can't get more Bangsa Malaysia than that.
Did I finally say something wrong? Maybe the fear is the loss of Bumi status if all of us are declared equal?
Yeah. We are equal. Because when we die, colors don't matter anyways. So might as well practise equality here&now to get a taste of what the there&after may be like.
