My friend Tukar Tiub has a nice joke today. He says Altantuya will contest in the Penanti by-election.
He asks if there is a conspiracy by Anwar Ibrahim. First to let former DCM Fairus resign, and next to get Aminah Abdullah to run as independent.
Altantuya used to be called ‘Amina’ by her father. But overzealous Malaysians think she has embraced Islam. Which is not true.
Mongolians sometimes call their first born daughters Amina to mean ‘my beloved one’. Something like that. Stev Shariibuu explained it to the media when he was in KL sometime back.
Of course, the media ain’t gonna print such stuff.
Anyway, I know this Aminah Abdullah (who wants Penanti) personally. She is a really nice lady. Her husband, too.
Years ago, when Jelutong kampungs used to flood, she and her husband would go all the way to help the poor folks.
I was there, and reported quite a few stories out of it.
I used to visit her home during Hari Raya. Her daughters are adorable as well.
She gets along well with people of all races and religions. Someone to look out for, indeed.
I don’t know if she has changed.
I know she is now disillusioned with PKR. She has her reasons, I am sure.
But this woman is a heavyweight. I mean she is serious when comes to work. And she has an admirable personality.
She used to be Penang PKR women chief.
And she had never been in UMNO. That’s the best part.
I would support Aminah as independent. Wish her all the best.
Hey, is UMNO contesting or not?
Tukar Tiub says Dottie has put on 3 more kilos because she’s shivering at the possibility of Aminah @ Altantuya showing up in Penanti.
A joker,this Tukar Tiub is.
