Kopi-o with my ADun
Posted on June 26th, 2009 by Lilian • Filed under: politics
I interviewed YB Sim, ADun of Pantai Jerjak where I voted.
The above is only part of the interview. I asked YB Sim about being an ADun and I am so surprised to hear how much an ADun earns a month. There is no such thing as glamour, no big money, lots of hard work and plenty of stress. YB Sim was very frank with the amount he receives as an ADun and the amount of money he has to pay for rental, staffs’ salary, electricity bill and etc etc. I will make another video on that because I guess most of us don’t really know what actually is the role of an ADun. Certainly, not blocked longkang, missing wife, stray husband cases like what we often read in the mainstream media.
It is very refreshing to chat with him because all the misconceptions I had about politicians are somewhat explained. All the while I thought politicians all loaded with gold rings, jade rings, fat fat , in expensive silk batik like those Bee End wannnn…
Now….I wonder when the ADun in the area I stay is going to grant me an interview? Hmmm????? ADun of Air Putih? Boleh kah, YAB?
