I had a long leisurely lunch with a friend today and we had a chat about life in general. We had Nasi Ayam Penyet in Gelang Patah, at one of the row of warungs near the KFC outlet. Of course we couldn't avoid talking about the recent General Election.
Me: So who did you vote for?
Mimi: BN of course.
Me: Shahrir and Adam?
Me: I thought you said that you don't like Shahrir?
Mimi: That was personal. When you cast your vote, we must see the big picture. Who did you vote for?
Me: Undi itu rahsia.
Mimi: Eleh .. come on, who did you vote for?
Me: Ghani and Ah Chy
Mimi: Both lost huh?
Mimi: Do you see the Chinese the same now as before?
Me: Nope. You?
Mimi: Me neither. I read in Annie's blog about how Ghani was treated by his Chinese so-called friends. Their betrayal of Ghani was complete. Nowadays I always wonder what the Chinese really think about me behind their smiles. You?
Me: Yeah .. I looked at the auntie who delivered the paper this morning and was sure she voted Kit Siang. I must have stared, because someone told me to quit staring at her as she was obviously fidgeting with discomfort. Yep, somehow all Chinese look like DAP CT to me.
Mimi: CT? Aren't you going overboard? I thought your Granny was Chinese?
Me: Cyber Terrorist la. Besides, Hong Kong Chinese are different from Malaysian Chinese.
Mimi: You still going to buy that bag from Michelle?
Me: Nah .. I told her I am not in the mood to waste money on yet another over-priced bag. I am going to look for a Malay girl to give my business to.
Mimi: Fat chance of finding one who would cater for your kind of taste in handbags.
Me: All the better for it. At least I can start saving some money then. Hey, how come your chicken piece is bigger than mine?
Mimi: Nasib-nasib la, you want equal sized chicken pieces, go to McD.
Me: I am boycotting McD too ...
