Around 3pm in Gua Musang, I met an Umno Supreme Council (MT) member, had a chat with him for a few minutes before he dropped a bombshell: "Tak payahlah bloger bloger ni!" He was smiling when uttering that. I hope he wasnt too serious with his words.
I sent a text message to fellow-blogger Parpukari and his immediate response was, "Biar betul, bro!"
The MT member saw me with a few Kemas workers and said, "You pun ada ke?" So, I went to him, shook hands and said I came a day before the nomination day and was putting up at Taman Wangi (developed by Kesedar).
"You masih dengan Business Times?"... and I said no, adding that I came as a blogger with some other bloggers, just to help out the government in the by-election. I even told him we have been to almost all by-elections since PRU2008.
"Ramai buat kerja ni, tak payahlah bloger bloger ni!" was what I got. Disgusted and humiliated, I left.
Parpukari also SMSed me this: "Kenapa tiba-tiba je diorang ni benci sangat kat bloger ni, bro? Apa yang kita dah buat?"
Yes, what have we done to deserve such a treatment? Why do some leaders whom we support despise us?
