dear mei fun, though you lost your PJU MPship, your ability to be on the international stage is great.
I hope you could go further steps on equality NOT just on gender, but most importantly all inequalities with special divides based on racial factors, religious factor, location factors,......poor and rich, higly educated against lowly educated,....Justice to be upheld and stop testifying false statements, as I learnt yesterday from a retired Judge about : You as well positioned person will be committing greater crimes as compared to others if you had witnessed or knowledge about how such crimes were committed, you instead of helping the victims to seek justice, you chose to ignore pleas of helps, instead of your aiding the victims, you decided to turn a deaf ear to ignore such assistance needed by the victim, you are indeed condoning such crimes, creating injustice further, I wish you good luck, and your conscience will be guiding you better!
May God's Grace be with you and may you testify for ONLY truth and promote justice to be prevailing amongst all of us!

Dear Mei Fun,

Courtesy of leaders is to be improved and also the manners of most of the leaders whom are entrusted with positions, power + authority must carry out their duties professionally. Though it is very common to note reports of good deeds done by such leaders as reported in media, but the truth remains to be like such a grand 'palace' of ex MB of Selangor had even caught the attention fo ex PM Tun Dr Mahathir, and as you are fighting equality for Malaysian Women as if Malaysians are not treating Malaysian ladies well, indeed, it is about people with more power mistreating the people with lesser power in general. Some ladies in the organizations with higher positions had also abused their entrusted authorities too, escept you heard much less from men who suffered such abuses than women being abused or bullied as there were MORE men in power than ladies with power. Please do not be upset if comments were not to your tune of expectations, but for courteousy, please do recall you still owe me a dinner your promised while you were PJU MP, just a friendly reminder, please do not hold the hard feelings lah!!
