Chinese versus DAP - edited

I received an okay last night to republish parts of the post which I took down yesterday.

It had to be taken down because some of its contents breached an agreement I had with someone.

I had however decided that I owe readers of this blog some clarification about what the post was about.

The post is actually about me having lunch at a Chinese restaurant in Bukit Tinggi, a small settlement by the Karak Highway at the foot of a hill on the way to Genting Highlands.

The restaurant is located a bit secluded behind a petrol station.

The food there was highly recommended by someone.

These are the parts of the post which I can republish, which highlighted a notice put up somewhere at the entrance of the restaurant,



It basically said:

UNSCRUPULOUS DAP LEADERS ARE NOT WELCOMED HERE

I think the owner of the restaurant must be quite brave to put up that notice.

Knowing that most Chinese voted for DAP and their allies in the last general election, the guy must be so pissed off with DAP to put up the notice and risks losing customers.

But then again, the place was packed, and the customers are all Chinese, at the time I had lunch there.

In fact, I believe that I was the only one there who was not a real Chinese.

For me, there are two main possibilities,

1. There was still a significant number of Chinese who don't really like DAP.

2. The food at the restaurant was so good that the customers, who are almost all Chinese don't really care if Lim Guan Eng got his ass kicked if he ever tries to enter the restaurant.

I'm inclined to believe that it's the second possibility.


The message I was trying to convey from the post was that, not all Chinese are pro-DAP.

So, I think all those calls for the Cina pendatang to balik Tongsan were wrong.

They were unfair and unkind to those such as the owner of the restaurant.

That was what the post was all about.

That's all.

Thanks for your patience to read the half-cut post.

    1. It was a private agreement I have with someone not to write certain personal stuff in this blog. Sometimes I forgot about it. I have to honor the agreement. Other than that, this blog is as it is. Thank you.

    2. Was your male companion placed under any threat by anyone for going out with you?

      You have removed all mention of your companion in this latest version.

      The restaurant owner must know something about the DAP which most of us do not. It could be some internal information, a sense of having been let down, a local dispute with DAP representatives in his area or t5he owner could be a die hard MCA or Gerakan loyalist.



      Why didn't you ask the owner what his or her anger with the DAP was all about?

    3. Nobody was threatened. It was just me being reminded to honor the agreement. I didn't ask the owner why he put up the notice because it was only brought to my attention just before I was about to leave the restaurant. I was in a bit of a hurry at that time to get to another place.

    4. Perhaps if you have an opportunity to go back to that restaurant and if that sign is up again, perhaps you could ask.

      When I was visiting Penang in 2009 I and my relations went for dinner at a Chinese restaurant overlooking the beach in Batu Ferringhi and the Chinese owner mentioned the protests against the demolition of Kg. Buah Pala and from the tone of her voice, I sensed a certain anger or frustration with the Penang State government, which as you know was a Pakatan Rakyat state government with the DAP in the lead.

      Also, many environmental and consumer rights activists are not happy with the current Penang State Government cozying up to property developers and not doing enough to stop destruction of the greenery and the environment.

      Thus it appears that such rampant development will continue, whether there is a Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat government in charge.

      It appears to be a case of "He who pays the piper, calls the tune" in electoral party politics.

      I believe that over time, the cracks will grow between those who feel left out or let down by their own party and this is true, whatever party it is, whether in the Pakatan Rakyat or Barisan Nasional camp.

    1. I'm not a religious expert, but I think what I had for lunch there was halal. It was steamed seafood made of prawns, crabs and shellfishes, along with vegetable soup. For drinks, I had fruit juice and Chinese tea.

    2. I don't know ..... the stock they use to flavor the soup emmm? Muslim entrepreneurs should get into the business if its that popular isn't it?

  7. So, I think all those calls for the Cina pendatang to balik Tongsan were wrong.!!!!! ANNIE WHAT ARE YOU SAYING??????? AND YOU KNOW WHAT????????
    YOU ARE ABSULUTELY WRONGGGGG ooooooooerrrrrrrrrr RIGHT!. YES YOU ARE RIGHT.!!
    There are Chinese who are patriotic in fact there are Chinese who speak BM well and there are who cant even speak Mandarin or write as their parent want them to be a 'MALAYSIAN'. You see Annie, all he craps and 'sheet.' that is happening now is all cause by those people who called themselves POLITICIAN and NGOs. They have ambition and their ambition is spelled P.O.W.E.R. As at now when rakyaat aspiration to have a 'balance power' in Parliament for the first time BN the Government and PR the opposition have a significant number of seat that fulfill our aspiration of Check and Balance all were washed away. Do you really see the check and balance? No ! What you see is all own ambition to grab and retain power at GE14, not really to work for the rakyaat. These people forgot these are trying time to prove themselves to rakyaat not to politised every single thing as they can do that when GE 14 comes. Many now are piss off with PR, who only knows how to gather or rally people around to demo for the sake of Bersih and Anwar and etc. Petrol price reduce to 1.70 and the tarik price still the same. Where are the voices of PR ? DO they really care. That is why it better the petrol price remained at 2.20 cause no effect when prince down and when oil prices up you see the tarik will be more costly and funny Malaysian still drinks it..

  8. That sign does not necessarily means the owner does not vote for Dap or the customers are all against Dap. Never jump to conclusion.

  12. Not all Chinese are rich and well to do.The disparity exist.The middle class Chinese are pissed of with PR esp as part of the Chinese Tsunami during last GE 13.For the past one and half year what had the PR State govt had done for them apart too much politicking and querelling amongst themselves. Most of the promises and menifestoes not fullfilled,PR reps became arrogant,only the rich tycoons were look after,nepotism flourished,corruptions had surfaced,slandering and character assassination existed which they knew only happened in BN,before.Local issues are not PR Reps concern but more interested in questioning and criticizing the Fed govt on national issues to gain cheap popularity.BN seemed in passive mood but keep busy in fulfilling their promises during GE 13 esp to the rural folks who are their votes bank.Did we noticed or not since GE 13,what had the Fed Govt created or dished out major project to the urbanites.Most goodies went to those who support them,which I think they deserved.My advice to DAP feel too confident of getting the Chinese votes all the time.Teluk Intan by election was a very good example.Losing nearly 7200 votes was no joke.It can happen again if they still take for granted all Chinese are DAP supporters.There is basis on what Annie is trying to express here.

    1. "Local issues are not PR Reps concern but more interested in questioning and criticizing the Fed govt on national issues to gain cheap popularity."

      This was abundantly clear to me in how Tony Pua who was so vocal in his criticism of the price tag of the MRT project and of the littoral combat ships purchased by the Navy but when it came to a the Kinrara-Damnasara Expressway (KiDEx, he took a wishy washy stand that he would support it if it was good for the people of Petaling Jaya but was willing to consider public feedback on issues with regards the highway's alignment, ramps and so forth which concern the public and which would inconvenience the public or cause congestion. That was about the middle of last year.

      Here is Tony Pua's latest statement on the matter on The Rocket website.

      http://www.therocket.com.my/en/tony-pua-responds-to-anti-kidex-groups-accusations/

      No where in the article has Tony Pua or any of his Pakatan colleagues present at the rally come out unequivocally against KiDEx.

      As for Teluk Intan, The measure of support for DAP would have been more accurate had the DAP candidate been Chinese, since ethnic bias amongst voters cannot be ruled out.

  14. It is ridiculous to think Chinese support DAP blindly.

    Like UMNO, there are pros and cons to it. Actually, businesswise, the preference is for UMNO.

    Important thing is, we see how the country is trending, and make adjustments based on our long and medium term views of it, based on family circumstances.

  15. In the case of Teluk Intan By election,it was pure arrogant,overconfidence and big headed attitudes esp amongst DAPs stalwarts and for these DAP deserved to lose....or in simple Malay words Padan Muka.
