This is almost a very typical story of any Sabahan that I have met, so full of anger against the Federal government and Umno, and against those from the Semenanjung, who they perceived as working for the government.
I was in Siena, Tuscany, recently to help celebrate my good friend's birthday.
We had a good dinner at this quaint little restaurant at one of the medieval cobblestone streets in Siena, I went outside with another friend for a breath of fresh air and then this half drunk woman from Sabah came to join us and started a frontal attack on me ,(e.g. telling me that I am a spy), on the Federal government, Umno, the prime minsiter and his wife and I told her to pipe it down since she was more than a bit tipsy with wine.
She went on the attack again and I said what has she got against the prime minister's wife amd I asked her did she know her personally or have she met her personally, on both counts the answers were "nyet", she has neve met the PM 's wife. So I told her she was out of line and I am on holiday with my wife and I did not want to spoil it.
She bragged about her relative is one of Malaysia's dynamic foreign minister, and also claimed her uncle, one of the country's top law enforcement officer Gani Patail for "toeing" the line.
She is nasty in that sense and I am now downsizing from her from my list of my fake and dishonest friends.
So under this beautiful Tuscan moonlit night with a group of people this person from Sabah spoilt it for me!
