I'm still sick. Writing this in bed.
Yesterday I went to the clinic and the doctor gave me six types of medication. He told me to straight away go home and rest but I can't. Got lots of works.
When I finally got home about 8pm, I immediately fell asleep. Woke up at 3am and found a few text messages, one of which was from my mother - my cousin in Singapore was badly injured in an accident. My mother is so worried about her. If I feel better later in the evening, I will probably drive across the Causeway to visit her at the hospital. I'm praying that she is okay.
Was just about to catch a bit more sleep just now when someone from Gelang Patah Umno called.
"Eh, what is this Khaled doing coming here to disturb us? He is already arranging his people, is it?" the guy asked.
I was not really sure what it was all about, so I asked him to elaborate. The guy said Johor MB frontrunner candidate DS Mohamed Khaled Nordin had asked one of the high ranking Umno official in Gelang Patah to arrange his visit to the peti undi areas in that constituency.
"Now everyone are saying that Khaled has appointed that fella who arrange things for him in Gelang Patah as the future division chief. This is not good as it could create factionalism as we are facing the general election. Can't Khaled cool off a bit and wait till the election is over?," said the Gelang Patah guy.
I have to agree with what the guy said. I think Khaled need to be cool a bit. He shouldn't try to assert himself too much too early as it will create unnecessary animosity.
I had been hearing all sorts of things about the Khaled camp but had refrained from writing them as it is now election time. Winning the election overrides everything else at the moment. But when things are done which could harm that chances of BN winning the election, I think I have to make things known as a gentle reminder.
Khaled, I think you need to concentrate on winning in Permas first. No need for you to sibuk want to check on things such as the BN war room, and what is going on in other constituencies etc. I think by now you should know how Johor BN operates during an election - the divisions are given a certain degree of autonomy on how they should wage their campaign. So, not yet being a Johor BN chairman, I think you should cool it off first. There will be plenty of time for you to act like an MB after the election....that is, if you become an MB....
Oh, one more thing Khaled, please tell your young aides not to be so blatant. Honestly, they are the ones who created this image of you and the gang going around like a bunch of pirates. I mean, come on la, you are still not yet an MB, and they are already talking about who should occupy which post and room at Kota Iskandar. They even openly talk about who among the JCS people should be appointed to which post. If you don't believe me, go and check with the JCS people, ok? Control them a bit please.
