This morning I happened to go to one of my regular restaurants for “apom manis”.
As I was about to pay up and leave, the boss who happens to be a friend and a fellow Malaysian of Indian descent casually asked….
“Where are you voting?”
I replied, “Right here…at Sekolah Kebangsaan So and So”…
He went again, “Ahh..but who are you voting for?”
I gave him a wry smile…. I think he got the answer. I felt there was something more and waited …. Sure enough, he went on to add…
“Back in 2008, it was easier…we (the Indians, I believe) knew who to vote for. This time, I’m not so sure…”
He made as if to leave to get back to his business and not wanting to impose, I said “Just follow your conscience….”, meaning to go back and have a longer chat with him. After all there’s still another week to go to the polls I thought.
I came back home, checked my mail and I found this video from a friend.
It’s 18minutes plus, but watch especially the Intro, and the 2.10/5.0/7.0 and 8.30 minute marks.
That should help my friend and indeed all Malaysian Indians make up their mind.
