I SHARED a two-decade-old close relationship with Yen Yen (Wanita MCA chief Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen) and I started to get closer to Yee Kew (Wanita deputy chief Datin Paduka Dr Tan Yee Kew) three years ago – Datuk Chan Kong Choy said yesterday after both women admitted their rocky relationship for the first time in the past three years to the media at the Wanita AGM on Saturday.  

 

ALLIANCES among the opposition parties will not last because they are marriages of conveniences, a little bit of trouble and they will SMS – Dr Mahathir used the example of the recent divorce via SMS to add punch to his speech.

ONE is a doctor and the other a PHD holder. Both equally capable and needed by the party.
