Either father and son have lost their marbles or it is skin-changing season for the Chua’s. Father
Snake Chua took capital issue over a latex tissue…Normala’s gloved hand.
I was taught handshake etiquette early in school. Bro Henry who was my favorite teacher telling us in Std. 5: A man should always wait for a lady to extend her hand first. In other words you do not offer your handshake to a lady and only accept them when offered.
Along those lines I remember my mum’s instruction when introduced to a lady: greet women with words (hello, how are you…) or a polite nod.
Of course I was lucky to be schooled well in St. Georges Institution, Taiping and coached well at home. I don’t know about the Chuas. It is all about good breeding, yes? And that goes for Gerakan Charboh Tau, Tan Lian Hoe too!
BIG Chua can take a lesson from Normala. It is always a lady’s right to offer her hand or otherwise. Even if Normala refuses to offer her hand in a handshake as an extension of religious modesty, what is wrong with that?
Papa Chua lost this first round and now if Little Chua does not retract by 12noon tomorrow PAS will sue for defamation in round 2. It was reported that he said that Normala asked some kopi tiam owner why he was selling beer. Will churlish Chua retract by stating the name of the outlet, the name of the owner and the time of the encounter? The clock is ticking.
….and this young labis twerp is a deputy minister? Says mighty great deal about caliber, no?
No wonder BN calun Azahar is so quiet…..others are doing the talking for him. And if he doesn’t maybe his boss Muhidin will.*
I was able to catch Normala’s press conference at the DAP media centre at noon. I came away impressed. She had presence. She answered questions fielded by a throng of reporters spontaneously, confidently, explicitly. This lady certainly has a natural flair about her….the type of gutsy flair we see in Nurul, Teo Nei Chin, Janice, Theresa, Chong Eng, Fong Po Kuan, Eli Wong. VIVA Ladies of Pakatan.
At the end of a photoshoot session Normala gave her personalized CNY greeting cards to everyone present at the PC. No wonder Ishak said when we met earlier at the PAS media centre......"DAP is going all out to help PAS!"
