The other day, while choosing on interesting titles of erotic literature or literotica for short, meant to be read offline later, a phone call came in and as I had hoped, it was from the Subang JKM office to inform that I can come and collect the monthly allowance the next day.
So yesterday one of the ever reliable Mobiliti vans came to fetch me up and less than 10 minutes I was already at the front door of the office. As expected, being the 15th day of the month and all, the room was packed with people to claim their share of wealth. Being a cool and composed person that I am, I did what typically Malaysians would do; pushing and shoving, and within seconds I was already right in front of the line.
Once inside, sitting patiently amongst the early birds while waiting for my name to be called, it was only natural to look around observing people from all walks of life thronging JKM for all sorts of reasons.
In a packed hall, body odor poking through your nostril is not uncommon but thanks to the old folks, neither was the smell of minyak angin cap kapak, Zam-buk and Tiger Balms combined. To me however, it was the smell of wealth…and power.
Right. So anyway my name was called shortly after and apart from the officer’s fine knockers which was a welcoming change from the usual sight of crips on wheelchair since arrived, I was so pleased to receive the cash and relieved the process didn’t take long. Soon I was already on my way home with a broad evil smile, plotting on regaining my supremacy.
I am now back being a rich Malay. Not quite a billionaire, at least not yet but with this money I can now reclaim the power that I gave up when I was down some days ago.
Hey I’m fine. Its ok because normally Malay folks could see those even at the highest level up because they are sitting pretty on top. But however, when a friend is in deep shit, to them the depth of the stinkhole would more often than not, deeper than the abyss its not possible for the naked eyes to spot. Lumrah.
It's Ok really. What matters is now anyway. I am so rich I can afford 10kgs of rice every fortnightly.
