We meet again.

In 2012, in the midst of the Bersih rally, I met this pretty young lass.  We didn't know each other but because of the event, strangers can become fast friends.  We were there for a common purpose, and that was to make it known to the government that we wanted fair elections.  Her name, Young Syefura Othman aka Rara, a DAP member (she joined the party a year after the Bersih rally).

Although she was kind of shy, she was also highly spirited and her smile did make the heat of the day bearable. As the police lobbed their tear gas canisters onto us, we ran helter skelter for cover and because of the huge crowd, we lost track of one another along the way.

 It was not until February this year, when we met up again, unexpectedly, she as the Councillor of MPKj looking after area, Cheras Zone 2, and me, as the Chairman of our residence association.  Since then, we have been constantly in touch with one another due to community affairs.

This afternoon, I had the opportunity to attend a Hari Raya Open House gathering, hosted by her and as usual, she was there with her usual charming self.
