Health Minister Chua Soi Lek says that his co-star in the latest Barisan Nasional 'sex movie' was a personal friend, a woman he has known for a very short time. Unconfirmed reports say that in situations like this the woman can be identified as Angelina Yam, often truncated to A. Yam. This can be further shortened to just Ayam.
Bolstered by the fact that his wife Datin Seri Wong Sek Hin had faxed a statement to Bernama that she and the family would stand by him, the MCA vice-president and Labis MP said he would not be resigning over the sex DVD.
Chua has also met with Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi and the DPM Najib Tun Razak. Chua became slightly disoriented when the Prime Minister asked if the woman had worked before as Chua's housekeeper. The DPM suggested that Chua learn 'silat goncang' to improve on some of his 'lipat kijang' and 'lipat tanduk' moves which evidently needed some oiling.
Both the PM and the DPM advised Chua that he be more discreet with his dalliances. They gave Chua a few pointers on how to avoid getting caught. This time C4 explosives were not discussed. The DPM promised Chua that if he became Prime Minister he would pass legislation requiring that all imports of spy cameras and CCTV equipment must have Approved Permits or APs. He promised to give Chua the monopoly over spy camera APs if Chua would solidly support him to oust the PM, just after the next elections.
The Prime Minister is not going to ask Chua to resign. The Prime Minister and the DPM hold the view that this is a very personal matter. According to Islam Hadhari, it is better to stand by something than to sit down doing nothing. If the reader finds this confusing, so does the writer.
