Yesterday was an exceptionally nice day for me.
A friend, who is a very prominent pro-Najib blogger invited me for lunch in the morning.
Told him I didn't feel like going out because the air conditioning of my car went kaput the previous evening.
I didn't feel like getting trapped in the afternoon traffic jam in a car without air conditioning.
But my friend offered to help by guiding me to a car accessories shop that he knows which will give me special deal to fix the problem.
After that we went for lunch and were joined by another very prominent pro-Najib blogger and a young, rich and handsome Chinese guy.
We had an asam pedas lunch.
It was all very pleasant.
Well, of course I can't tell you all exactly what we discussed but suffice to say that if a certain person knows what it was all about, she would had flipped in anger and rage of jealousy and probably died of a heart attack too :)
Eh, no need to go into that, okay.
I'm trying to be nice these days.
Anyway, I wish I can have lunch like that with my friends from the Dr Mahathir's camp too.
Honestly, I miss them.
I know that they were weary of me because I choose to be neutral rather then siding with them.
I understand why they feel that way about me and therefore I don't want to disturb them.
Whatever it is, I still consider them as my friends and hope we can hang out together again someday after all these fightings are over.
Later in the evening, I had some sorts of a nice sate dinner with another gang of friends.
Two foreign guys and a very beautiful Chinese girl.
We talked about a lot of things including politics.
My foreign friends think that BN may seems to be in trouble now, but it will pull through the next general election.
"As long as your government can keep the economy going and the people do not suffer directly from its policies, BN will win again," said one of them.
"And they are doing exactly that."
The guy actually spent some time in Sungai Besar during the recent by-election and made quite an interesting observation.
"I was at one of the Amanah ceramah in Sekinchan and there was Tony Pua (of DAP) on stage talking about the 1MDB issue. I noticed that the crowd looking bored and not understanding what he was talking about," he said.
He then went on about how and why the 1MDB issue will not have much impact among the ordinary people.
"It's too complicated and as long as the people don't directly feel that anyone is taking money out of their pocket, they will not be too concerned.
"And on top of all that, the opposition parties are tearing themselves apart. It's beyond me how they are going into the next general election with any hope of defeating BN."
My other foreign friend was of the same opinion.
But he also offered some consolation words.
"You all Malaysians complain quite a bit, but, don't you know that people in other parts of the world are complaining too?" he asked.
The guy travels a lot because of his work.
"People in Cambodia complain about things in their country, so do people in Sri Lanka, Vietnam, etc. People in Singapore also complain about how things are down there.
"And you know what? People in New York, London and Tokyo are also complaining about things in their country.
'So, after everyone had done complaining, where should they go to?
"It's the same everywhere.
'Actually your country is not so bad,' he said.
I nonetheless cautioned the guys that BN is still at risk and should not get too cocky.
'If they get too cocky, they will do stupid things. That happened a lot with Umno people. And once they get stupid, the people can get so angry with them up to a point where the people don't care anymore about anything except that they just want to vote Umno and BN out."
That was what happened during the runs up to last two general elections.
BN was shaken quite a lot because of that.
The key words are "cocky" and "stupid".
Then the very beautiful Chinese lady suddenly spoke,
"I think my mom is siding with Umno," she said.
"Why you say that?" I asked, quite surprised.
I always thought that she and her whole family are supporting DAP.
She gave me an answer which really made sense.
I wish I can write exactly what she said about the whole thing here but I know that she will kill me if she reads it.
Her elderly mother who mostly lives in Singapore had actually been going around telling everyone about how good is Malaysia and its government.
You all simply have to trust me on this one - not all Chinese are supporting DAP or hate BN.
If you are a Malay, please don't believe anyone who comes to you and says, "Ini Cina semua jahat mau ambik hak Melayu. Saya tau sebab saya Cina."
Those are hatemongers whom I suspect were trying to turn Malays into crazy racists so that the world will later on turn around and condemn them for that.
Malays should ignore those bad people.
Hopefully they will, okay.
