Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai is seen enjoying himself at CNY events almost every day.
With the Chinese New Year almost coming to an end, one cannot but to notice 2 very usual images on English daily The Star. The MCA-owned newspaper has been filled with ads by hypermarkets about a week before CNY which has been going on almost daily ever since.
It is now the 9th day of CNY and the ads are still flowing in with price drops on cartons of carbonated drinks, packet drinks, vegetables and fresh foods, chocolates, cookies and all that.
The other image one would see is of Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai, the president of MCA at CNY events. This has been going on almost every day since pre-CNY and is still going on.
Liow, who is the Transport Minister seemed to be having the time of his life and The Star is like his personal picture-journal of sorts.
Since taking over the leadership in the party, nothing much has really happened. Besides making some denial statements that the support for MCA is almost ‘back’, nothing much has happened at all.
There has been so many attacks against the Chinese community in recent weeks by those who claim to be ‘educated leaders’ and besides making some statements in The Star (where else??), Liow has not done anything to regain the confidence of the community.
It is quite a surprise that he can still ‘drink and be merry’ which is being reported as ‘news’ by The Star.
