We pick up a lot of acquaintances along our journey thru life. I acknowledge acquaintances, but I prefer to cultivate FRIENDS. However I admit I gravitate from close friendship to
distant distance friendship. I still continue to be amiable to the latter but I do keep my distance. You will gather by now that the flag is still upside down because my cause and the only cause is good governance in a new vehicle – a new Malaysia. As such I support any initiatives that espouse this single cause. Many of my friends agree on this agenda but some have got distracted along the way when a different flavor of the month wafts around. This is when I quietly withdraw without kicking up any fuss. I have a gregarious trait due to my previous occupations in work and in sports. But I feel very comfortable being alone, working on my own with a few treasured friends - all Buffalo Soldiers. My best moments are when I am alone with a book or spending an evening over drinks with this close group. Of course we do raise our voices over diverse issues – but at the end of the early mornings when we take leave of each other our cause is still the same, steadfastly so!
I had been waiting anxiously for the Lotus meeting with Datuk Mohd Ariff Sabri HJ Abdul Aziz, former Adun of Pulau Manis, Pekan, who blogs as SakmongkolAK47. Blogger D’Nightcaller had arranged for this meet after the GMI-Pewaris Debate at the Civic Centre on May 9, 2009.
Dato Sak had challenged the obviously obese bigot Papukari to meet him face to face after the above debate where the “YES to ISA” group failed to show up. Papu also failed to show up, just like King Frog failed to show up at Bersih2.0.
I believe Datuk Sak too is discerning about the company he keeps, having decided to put himself into the position he chose to be in: He wrote recently:
You have a piece of asset that you can capitalize on- the airport and all the services therein. If you have to invest in the best automated system in baggage handling and all other things such as buying tickets by placing your hand phone over reading-machines, you invest in all these things because you can make people pay for all these conveniences. The problem is you are not using the material between your ears to the fullest. And I am not taking about your bulbous noses!
