    How does Chua Soi Lek treat his personal friends ???
    Yaks,Yaks,Yaks,He gets them to “hisap” his cigar,
    That is not the right way to treat your personal friends !!! CSL !!!
    Refer to CSL personal interviewon TV,
    Chua: I’m the one in sex video
    Jan 1, 08 4:32pm

    Health Minister Chua Soi Lek today openly admitted that he was the person featured in a video depicting a man having sex with a woman purportedly in a hotel room.

    Chua, 60, who is also MCA vice-president, made the confession at a press conference this afternoon in his parliamentary constituency in Labis, Johor.

    However, he said that he will not resigned as minister but will instead let Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to decide on his fate.

    The senior MCA leader, who is married with three children, also said that the 30-something woman featured in the video clip was a personal friend.

    Over the past three days, the Chinese dailies have reported that free DVDs – allegedly showing the politician in various sexual antics with a woman – were first distributed in Muar and later, Batu Pahat and Seremban.

    The scandal first broke on Saturday when copies of the DVD were anonymously placed in various streets in Muar town for people to collect. Some copies were even distributed by unknown individuals to a number of shops in the area.

    As a fellow doctor in dental specialist line I would like to share these thoughts with you,
    Personal friends are people who stands by through all thick and thin episodes of this life..
    They rejoice with you in all your happy occasions,
    They lend you their shoulders to cry upon during your saddest moments,
    They are concerned for your heart,mind and soul,
    That is the way my personal friends treated me when I went through the messy divorce papers with my senior politician and sexually wayward husband,
    I am a dentist and I tell you that the mouth is a wonderful creation,
    It is meant to eat,talk and sing,
    It is meant to kiss your lover,
    Read through the wonderful lives of the Four Great Beauties of China,
    They brings joy and happiness to their men without having to hisap their cigar,
    I am very angry that the past eras Japanese egoistic men asked their women to kneel in front of them,
    But now in the woman’s rights 21st centuary how can the head of Malaysian Chinese Association forces a beautiful woman to hisap his cigar ???
