I'm not such a social person but it was really not hard to start shaking hands and just talk. The topic of conversations with complete strangers -- politics! It's easy to just talk on and on about what if DAP do not perform, what about Najib & '69, what about Hannah Yeoh being naive, about Tony Pua living up to his manisfestation....
There's a public mutual agent and a property agent at my table, and im the cimbwa agent :P When Tony Pua and Dr. Cheah came to our table to shake hands, everybody stood up and camera-freak me volunteered instantly to help this lady-stranger-sitting-beside me to take group picture for her. She don't really know who are these politicians, she came with the hope to take a picture with Lim Kit Siang!
Anyway... I took home Tony & Lau's poster.... to keep la. The people at my table were warning me not to let my boyfriend get jealous for putting it up!
There were probably about 30 tables, alot of noise, clapping of hands here and there... people are not afraid to come out and be seen. Just like Hannah said "...suddenly you have many friends."
I'm not sure why they still need to translate word by word into chinese... I thought everybody bred in PJ could understand English. There were a minority of Indians and even Malays there, I wish the party would be not so chinesish, I wouldn't mind if they spoke English+Malay instead.
Just let us grow into a one big Malaysian community, where people love & respect people.
