I confess that I still buy the newspapers as it forms a sort of morning ritual.
Somehow reading the papers in one's hands is a totally different experience from reading on the computer screen.
Today, the elderly Malay gent was clearly agitated. I was about to pick up and pay for my papers when he blurted out something like, "Crooks! Must kick all the BN out".
He was not a complete stranger as I had met him at the same shop a few times. So I replied "Shocking, isn't it?" and pointing to the headlines on the Lingam tapes.
"But the folks in the kampung will still support for a few RM".
"Those people are blind. The old folks do not know." he replied as he went home.
Think I will have more interesting conversations with him in the near future.
This is the first time I have heard a near stranger voicing his feelings so openly.
Maybe Malaysians are finally waking from their careless slumber.
OBAMA's message is short and sweet for Malaysians. "WE WANT CHANGE!"
