“Lim and Khalid Smoking…”
February 8, 2010 10 Comments
It was well past two thirty in the morning when I put my head on my pillow to catch up with some much needed sleep. I was watching a spirited Chelsea team oozing with confidence and making the young Arsenal team eat “humble pie” The British media has even suggested that with John Terrys frame of mind it will no doubt that conclusively “Arsenal will tame the Lions at their own Den” Result 2-0. Chelseas teamspirit and confidence very much intact.
Well. it was a good game and I said my night prayers to thank the almighty one for giving me “A Blessed Day” and said “See You in the morning.” This I have been saying for the past 40 years or more. Even the “cicak‘ (LIZARD) concurred with me when I typed this very sentence.
Believe it or not…..One should be dreaming rightly so FOOTBALL..It turned out that just before I woke up around 7.45 am of all the people one could dream of are Two Chief Ministers of their respective states. Both of them are and have been seriously under heavy attack by the BN who are opposition at both these states.
Lim Guan Eng of DAP helms Penang while Khalid of PKR holds Selangor. The BN leaders of both these states Koh Tsu Koon (Gerakan)and Khir Toyo(UMNO) losts these two BN states in the lasts GE.
The drama unfolds….”Both of them were in at the corridor of the Penang State legislative council having a chit chat and smoking away next to the standing aluminium ashtray. I turned round and said to GUAN ENG,”Releasing tension kah..?” He shook my hands and said ‘How did you manage to get in with justs a singlet and short pants and not properly attired’ I said your bodyguard which happens to be my former classmate in fifth grade by the name of Ho Sia said no problem,”Kaki Lang.Ka Ee Kong Too Ho.”
Which is Chinese Hockien language and it means,” No bother just tell him.” Maybe the dream is a signal for me to write something about all these hurling of abuses especially from their own coalition members. In recent weeks PKR Zahrain Mohamad Hashim (Bayan Baru) and PKR Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal), have been both at loggerheads with DAP secretary-general and Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
It is no doubt a smear campaign but are they any truths in so far as why it is so open? Is there something not too right with Lim Guan Engs adminstration? Is Khalid helping out another fellow Chief Minister by meeting him,discussing on behalf of PKR and smoking away?
Well, I got right to business and told Guan Eng,”See you so fasts tell me what I can and not wear while you dont even give me a chance to explain. If Mahatma Gandhi had walked in there will be fanfare right. How judgemental can one get so quickly?
In other words its open to interpretations what the media/BN strategists and spin doctors are up to. Sitting at the ‘holy grail’ of the two states is no laughing matter and these two CMs better get used to it. Many before them has tasted the bitter sweet of sitting on the top where very often its a lonely appointment. The mosts important of it all is to defend it at all costs. Chelsea did very well in the scond half with all their might and know how.
As the wise remarks of Sun Tzu(in the Art of War puts it…,”That it would be better to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy’s not coming ,but on our own readiness to recieve him:not on the chance of hisn ot attacking,but rather on the fact that we have made our own position UNASSAILABLE.”
BN is the opposition in both these states so I told Khalid and Guan Eng,”Do you honestly think that they will let you take over and rule so easily…?”Both of you have to stamp your own political presence.It is very easy to admire on the victory but when things start to go wrong unknowingly it will cause more than a toothache.The people are the masters and not the YBs or MPs who rant and shout their voices to earn political mileage…(Time to wake up 7.46 am..Oh…)
Similarly I would also say to Taib or Musa if called upon….wonder when its their turn for me to visit…………………….
