AS: Oh, Rosol, you brought keropok ka? How nice of you, you know I like keropok. Thanks, thanks, have a seat. I was just about to call you, so you saved me the trouble.
Rosol: Ah, don't mention it la. I was driving alone in a rented car in Penang when it crossed my mind that you like keropok. I also don't know why because Penang and keropok don't jive but somehow I remembered how you once said that you can't live without keropok.
AS: In Penang, you remembered about me and keropok? Wah, you are precious la.
Rosol: So I thought why not get you the best keropok in the world? Since you don't get good keropok in Penang I decided to drive back to Terengganu to buy the best keropok in the world. Afterwards I have to drive back to return the car.
AS: You know Rosol, you make me want to cry la. Look, what you have done? I am crying already. This is the second time this week. Thank you so much la Rosol.
Rosol: Common man, what is this thank you thank you all. Friends don't say sorry or thank you to each other.
AS: Ah, I saw that movie, Shah Rukh Khan, what, what, Om Shanti Om, right?
Rosol: Wah, you also see Hindi movie ka?
AS: Sure la, what you think you alone like ka?
Rosol: Come to think of it ha Ahmad, I am glad I have a friend like you, not like that Deris.
AS: What? You not ngam with Deris ka? But the other day you all were screaming for my neck and wanted him as the MB?
Rosol: What to do la Ahmad, we all had to act only in front of him. If the party had not agreed to Tuanku's choice also, we would be secretly supporting you. They said we want to move a motion of no confidence, you think we will do it ka? The others may be la Ahmad but not me, I told them off in our secret meeting. I told them whoever trpes to get Ahmad down will have to answer to me. I will sink or swim with him.
AS: Wah you said that to them ka? And then what happened?
Rosol:They took the matter to Deris.
AS: They told Deris? Fulamak, then, then what happened?
Rosol: Deris drove to my house that very night la. I didn't even let him enter my house. I said, "Deris, if you want me to join you to sabotage Ahmad, please go la, I won't do it; even if he were to be taken under ISA, I would go with him".
AS: You told him that? I can imagine the look on his face la. Hey, drink la the coffee before it gets cold.
Rosol: Thanks, waaaah, this coffee is so good la.
AS: You know Rosol, I thought being a Menteri Besar is easy but it is not la. A Lot of work la. I think I want to get a deputy MB la.
Rosol: Yes, being an MB is tough. I know, and you should get a deputy MB, you know someone who would do anything for you even go with you under ISA, someone who knows you, knows what you like to eat and what you don't, I mean someone who understands you la. That fellow got no Datuk also never mind, that one not important.
AS: Yes la, I think you are right la. Hish! I am already late for a meeting la. If you could forgive me Rosol.
Rosol: Er, er just now you said you were just about to call me, what was it for.
AS: Ah yes, thanks for reminding me, I haven't even started work and I am forgetting things already. I was about to say don't bother calling me for an exco post because I am not going to give it to you but after this conversation that we had and these keropoks, I am sure I don't want you as an exco and thanks anyway for the Sandiwara. Close the door on your way out.
