At first I intended to park my car at the PJ Club, hop on to the LRT, get down at Masjid Jamek and take a stroll into Independence Square. Haris alerted me that there was heavy police presence. They may not even allow me to cross over to Dataran M. I called an old student Terrence and told him that the only way I could join the people at the vigil was thru the Royal Selangor Club. Terrence picked me up and the normal entrance to RSC was not to be. However I got into the club after having been duly signed in and proceeded to the flag pole. The police did not allow assembly under the Malaysian Flag. What transpired is best depicted in the YouTube at the end of this post.
A commentator FAIR, said that I was a BRAVE man. NO, these are the brave young Malaysians, who have a lot to lose by coming out in the open and on a Saturday Night. Me I have nothing to lose, it was not a big deal braving the Blue Boys.
I met Amin (Black in Korea) and his beautiful companion. Amin and a few friends recently presented the PM with some attarctive bed-time accoutrements. I hope Pak appreciates this gesture.
I also me Anu of Galadriel who was bravely clicking away....but has yet to send me the pics. You OK Anu?
Another brave young Malaysian. Jaya. He sent in the pics below with this note:
Dear Uncle Zorro,
I was happy that finally I have met and shook hand with you. I couldn't find you during the Hindraf Rally as the crowd was big. I have attached the pic taken with you together with the pic of me and friends from Klang. Hope to see you again another time.
