Is DAP Too Much Of A Gentleman Or Is It Abdul Aziz?

I once heard Tunku Abdul Aziz speak at a ceramah at a hotel in KL organised by Pakatan that Anwar also attended.

He had this quiet but yet forceful and dignified way of speaking, and suave to boot. His English was impeccable. I was impressed.

In fact, I was about to tell a friend about this Malay man who together with some other Malay men who have recently joined DAP like Ariff Sabri better known by his pseudonym Sakmongkol and Aspan Alias of Aspan Alias  blog, may just be what DAP needs to attract more Malays to join the party.

But there is always this doubting Thomas in me. If something is too good be true, it always leaves me doubting.

Not that I am a pessimist. I am always an optimistic guy, except when it comes to politics, the oldest profession in the world next to crime. Sorry to disappoint you fellows who thought that prostitution is the oldest profession.

But I digress.

Now, Tunku Aziz is in the news for all the wrong reasons. But in politics like they always complain about, one day is like a thousand years. That is why it is the oldest profession?

I don't want to get into the grisly details. The news is all over the place.

Except that there is a familiar feel to all the drama, like a deja vu.

A guy joins an opposition party, whether from the ruling Barisan or someone apparently some people like to call a towering Malay or Malaysian and the next moment (although the length of time of that moment varies depending on a number of variables), he is on national TV and all over the main stream media (MSM) running down ( the degree of the running down also varies depending on another number of variables, aiyah why so much maths involved ah?) and then we have the MSM and national TV having a field day demonising the opposition party and making the guy who just left the party he "just" joined into a political martyr ( I don't know why to me this word "martyr" always sounds more like "my tyre")

Now, Tunku Aziz calls DAP's Lim Guan Eng "biadap" (Malay for uncouth).

But many Malaysians are also wondering why as a senior member of DAP tunku Aziz had to openly and publicly disagree with the party's support for Bersih 3.0.

Didn't he know that as a party member and a senior one at that, that if every party member who disagrees with a party stand comes out to openly voice his opinion, then what are you talking about this thing called a party stand?

He didn't object to the two previous Bersih rallies. At least not publicly. But if he really could not agree with his former party's stand, then he could and should have honourably resigned and left DAP QUIETLY instead of coming out to give an hour long interview on TV trying to justify himself by saying that he did not support Bersih 3.0 because of the violence and that there was really no need for another Bersih because the government has rung in the changes.

Ah, really?

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
