Since then there has been this “master servant” relationship between us…me being the servant standing way behind while he took center stage in any situation we were in together….mostly weddings, kenduris and gatherings where Pak Lah was around. Those were the days….
A few years back for anybody…and that includes me and other ‘connected’ relatives to see him…would mean making an appointment through ‘his people’ and waiting and waiting and waiting for a time when he can see you. Those were the days……
Today he fights for his relevance in UMNO. As we all know his father-in–law is no longer Prime Minister. What he says has to fight for space in the government controlled media and where he goes is no longer of any concern to anybody anymore. Whether he still welds any power worth talking about is a matter of conjecture and debate. Whether he strides in the corridor of power can be argued one way or the other. It is all a bit confusing for us all – much more for him when as head of Pemuda he thinks he deserves more. But this is today….
This is all I want to say to KJ. On the way up in life be nice to those you meet on the way up. You meet the same people on the way down…and make friends before you need them.
