There is this Malay guy, who is my very close friend.
This guy is quite cute, relatively successful and very intelligent. He is also a very nice man, a real gentleman.
I know for a fact that he got scores of admirers among the ladies.
But his heart seems to be only for his girlfriend.
What baffles me was that his girlfriend always treated him quite roughly.
She hardly pays any attention to him.
Sometimes I asked my friend, how he could stand such a poor treatment by his girlfriend.
"It's because I love her," he always answered.
And when I asked him why he is working so hard to be successful, his answer was very weird,
"I have to be successful. Otherwise she would leave me," he said.
And when I told him that I think his girlfriend is a materialistic bitch, he was quick to defend her,
"It's not like that. She doesn't really wants my money. She just wants her boyfriend to be successful. She doesn't want to be with a loser," he said.
I then told him that's such a lousy bullshit excuse.
"If she loves you she must accept you the way you are, instead of forcing you to work half to death so that she can have a successful boyfriend," I said.
My friend just smiled and explained,
"You see Annie, she is like that because she is a Chinese. She is being practical. Most, if not all Chinese girls are like that.
"Love and all those romantic stuff are nice. My girlfriend enjoys all that too, but that's only while they last. At the end of the day, it's about surviving in this world and for that she chooses to practice her Chinese practicality."
When I think back to the time when my friend started going out with his Chinese girl, I remember that it was her who loved him to bits.
Now, it has turned the other way around.
Sometimes I even think that she is seeing someone else due to her coldness towards my friend, but when I suggested this to him he was adamant that his girlfriend would never betrays him.
"That is normal. Most Chinese girls turned cold when they get older. They become garang aunties," he joked.
In my heart I told myself that my friend is a hopeless case. I think he will continue to love his girlfriend even if he knew she had cheated on him.
It's like Umno still being in love with its MCA girlfriend despite knowing that she had sex with that DAP bastard during GE13 just because the asshole is Chinese.
Yup, MCA had sex with DAP despite DAP's irritating ugly face and childish manner
If you don't believe me, go ask MCA president DS Liow Tiong Lai how many per cent of MCA members voted for DAP and the other Pakatan gang during GE13.
Yet, still Umno continues to love MCA.
"Darling, can I have three ministers and five deputy ministers?" asked MCA.
"Sure my love, you can have them all," replied Umno.
"Darling, can I continue to have sex with DAP after this?" asked MCA again.
"Can.....errr, just don't do it in front of me. I may get jealous, okay," replied Umno.
Malays' love is indeed of the crazy type.
