DAMN! He was foul last night...foul-mood that is. Nothing seemed right: the sushi joint I chose was not a celebrity hangout; he was not being appreciated for his efforts; he never even got a mention at the Loaf; the single malt was suspect; he was bitching about out-of-pocket expenses and even hinted about retirement plans.
On normal days I would have blown my top....but because Hantu did not blink once....I knew that he was bitching serious and I hate to have to look into his eyes that tells you....invariably and inevitably...."read my beak, stupid." In situations like this I am not allowed to speak (I write down my questions) but just listen. But before I could write my first question he went into me....sounded like this but did not sound like Hantu....with "before you came to this pseudo japanese eatery that has nothing japanese like in japanese you posted something inaccurately about the involvement of a japanese and an american. It is just one person, a Japanese-American, just as in African-American." I apolgised becasue it was unwise not to.
WQ (written question): What's the take on Lingam?
Hantu: Do you want news on the Raw Water Transfer Project or Lingam? You people are so obsessed with him. He is an unscrupulous, compulsive, irascible, incorrigible, irrational, irreverent, irremediable LIAR. Given half the chance he can lie his way to convince those already in heaven to give up their PR (permanent resident) status and follow him to hell. May not sound like him or look like him, but we can smell that type of stink miles away. So do you want the RWTP or the man called Penis? Malaysia should shit-can this guy. His fart seems to have more substance than his words. Shit-can him!
WQ: What is shit-can?
Hantu: American expression I picked up....interpret it anyway you want. I am a messenger not an interpreter.
WQ: Point taken. What is this Raw Water Transfer Project.....I thought it was already a done deal involving Pahang, Selangor and Negri Sembilan.
Hantu: Done deal? Your minister should stop the tender and recall the PQ (pre-qualified) selection.
There is widespread market talk here and overseas of foul play during the PQ exercise. The Gamuda-China Consortium was disqualified from the PQ! Tell your machai to question this.
WQ: But you are my machai!
Hantu: You are insulting now.....I am not your's or anybody's machai......I am your messenger, observer, and on the ethereal plane, your conscience.
WQ: Anything more on the RWTP?
Hantu: yes, but not today....leave it for later....got two items here: TV3 has sex DVD on MB of northernmost state. Sandwich style.....he in between mah! The other item:Samy already has 5,000 asli votes and 5,000 army votes. So he is ahead by 10,000 votes. MIC may have been given shares worth 5 billion over the years from various projects. So, he not pochee yet as you said earlier.
WQ: Is that all?
Hantu: Tell that friend of yours...that Shanghai Fishy fellow....I dont like his insinuations....I will not dig out anything about small-town folks. I have relatives in Taiping and they are all gentle people .....so he is safe for now, unless he continues to provoke.....but since he is a malt-kaki his sins are absolved.
