Talked with a friend who used to be a staunch Umno supporter but now with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on the other side of the fence.
He is actively campaigning for Pribumi Bersatu.
I asked whether his new party will be ready if the general election is to be called within the next few months as many believe it would be so.
“I think we still have plenty of time. Najib will likely stretch it till the end like in the last general election in 2013. He has no real reason to call for an early polls,” he said.
The deadline for the next general election is in August next year.
“How about the economy? Will it holds up for BN till next year?” I asked.
“Looks like it,” he said.
It doesn’t look good for the opposition parties if what my friend said were all true.
On the possibility of the opposition parties being able to use the extra time to mend their currently acrimonious ties, my friend said the chances of that would not be so good either.
“Too much mistrust between the (opposition) parties,” he said.
My friend however said he will continue what he is doing now.
“We have to at least let them know that the corrupt practices can’t go on. We have to speak up against it,” he said.
Well, good luck to my friend.
He was actually visiting me yesterday afternoon after hearing that I’m sick.
I’m writing this lying in bed using my phone.
Can’t even sit and write properly using my laptop.
Woke up earlier about 2.30am and can’t go back to sleep till now.
Nothing else to do, so I’m writing this just to pass the time.
Had some biscuits for sahur just now.
Trying to keep my puasa intact and refusing to take my pain killer.
Maybe Allah giving me the pain to cover a bit of my sins and therefore I should take it as it is.
I’m quite a sinner, actually.
Sorry, I’m beginning to ramble.
Hopefully things will get better.
I’m already feeling guilty for not being able to work.
Okay, I better rest now. Left side of my body beginning to get painful again as I lay on it to write this.
