Last night, despite officially not working, I went to the office for a 3pm mtg, to end up at almost 7pm!
Being reminded by Cik (Ketua Wanita UMNO one of the bahagians in Kelantan) that her grandson’s milk formula was in my car (earlier I sent them to Kompleks PKNS for a shopping outing), I immediately went to her hotel to deliver the tote bag that contains the formula and other baby’s stuff.
On my way home, I stopped over at the nasi lemak stall near Shell to buy a packet of “nasi kerabu” for my dinner (earlier I bought KFC for DH’s and Aina’s dinner). At home while having the nasi kerabu, I checked my phone, and found a miss call from my good friend A (DH refers to her as my girlfriend). A asked me to join her to go to her neighbour’s house. There’ll be some PKR women there. Hmm… A PKR women’s meeting? interesting… Furthermore, I had not seen A since before the GE12, so I thought it would be good to catch up with the latest news.
Soon I was at A’s house. A, who just came back from a work trip to the Maldives, gave me a very nice souvenir photo frame:
When they started the discussion, only then I found out that the gathering was for the women’s wing (Wanita PKR) of the Shah Alam’s Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)!
Now, am I ready to be politically active? I asked myself… well…. I don’t think so. However, I’ll be more than happy to participate in their social activities (such as motivation talks, workshops for the students, and some charity work too). A and I were so bad that at one stage of the discussion we dorminated it! Aisyah with her marketing ideas put forward as activities to create awareness among the public that Wanita PKR exists, and to attract more ladies to join it; and I with my ideas on what to do to benefit the kids/community – indirectly to win the public’s heart 🙂
It was quite an opportunity to meet these ladies who are very excited and keen to rool out the activities, despite lacking the manpower to do them. Anyone interested? Contact me 🙂
Dr D, the Wanita head for PKR Shah Alam is a very concerned person and looks sincere and passionate enough about the idea of carrying out charity activities – this I will surely support.
The hostess, Kak Nor served us with snacks, currypuffs, mee kari and drinks. So, we came home with satisfied tummy too 😉
Pic taken with my handphone. Not clear due to poor lighting, despite setting the camera at “night” setting.
What a night last night was – from meeting an UMNO’s wanita chief to meeting a PKR wanita chief 😉
