I was always mistaken as a Malay here, no doubt about that. It's my skin tone.
I remember when I was in KL studying, some strangers whispered among themselves about 'this Malay girl' (me) dating a Chinese. I was moving house at that time. So I pretended not to understand whatever they were talking about.
Then there was this time when I was in a taxi, the Chinese driver asked if I'm Malay mixed. So I said yes and played along. We were having conversations in the car and I tried so hard not to give away hints but I think I occasionally let slip my Sabahan accent but it doesn't matter I think and it's funny because I can speak Chinese and I know he can, but I just want to play along. And of all topics, he had to talk about rape.
Another time was in Sungei Wang shopping when a sales girl excitedly asked if I'm from Hawaii. LOL!! Of all features. She was so shocked when I replied to her in Cantonese. She was embarrassed.
Then when I went holiday in China, the sales person would always face difficulty in assessing which language to speak to me. They will try from Japanese to Korean to some remote languages I never heard of.
The most recent one happened during my trip to Hong Kong. Most, I think mistaken me as coming from China because my Canto sounded somewhat different from theirs until when I look puzzled at some words, only they guessed I am probably from Malaysia or Singapore. I had the best time in Hong Kong differentiating the Cantonese accents coming from different parts of the world. I can say the easiest to distinguish is those from China because it sounds softer and more polite while I think those from KL, Penang and Singapore carries a little bit of Hokkien in them.
And then there was this sales person in a Chinese herb shop (I think she's from China) who confidently greeted me with "Sawadikaap" and spoke fluent Thai with me. I was like :-O :-O :-O ! No idea what she was talking about until I had to say, "我不懂..." (I don't understand). I don't know who should be more embarrassed, me or her.
In a country where people pretend to be religious god says this and god says that, sex scandals or at least purported sex scandals excites people or so it seems. Yes, it was amusing when Chua Soi Lek was caught with his pants down years ago leading to his resignation. But so what..he got elected to be MCA's president anyway. So anti-climax.
Now back to this "Top Opposition Leader". Seriously, don't think we're that stupid to not know who this Datuk T is implying. And seriously, who is actually following the current court case religiously? Charge of sodomy meh sodomy lah...not like I care.
Also, don't tell me one man has to be 'caught' twice (2 times!!!!) and yet never learn his lesson. If it's really true, he better start having those out of wedlock relationship in his very own house at the sight of his wife without the cameras or any recording devices. Foolproof the house with recording devices if possible.
It's amazing that some people can be so obsess with who this "Top Opposition Leader" is sleeping with and probably the outlook of his sexual organ. *shakes head in disbelief.
Anyway, we shouldn't be interested with the new sex saga unless it comes with the video footages. I am actually waiting, if any, will be released. Censor it if needed but let us see if Datuk T (who bravely revealed himself to reporters but not the public) has a valid allegation.
Otherwise, this whole will just a miserably failed attempt to tarnish a person's image via the most condemnable dirtiest tactic.
