In reply to sex dvd comments/ 回应光碟事件留言

自上个月开设部落格以来,我发现有不少读者针对光碟事件留言。事情发生后,我已公开承认一切,也向全民包括我的家人道歉,同时辞去所有官职和党职。事发以来,我发现公众的舆论几乎只着重对我私隐进行审判,显然对整起事件背后的主谋不感兴趣。我认为,以揭发我的私隐并加以攻击并不是光彩磊落的做法,也不符合健康政治文化。偷拍后收藏几个月然后才采取进一步行动,在“重要”时刻才抛出来...对方的时机掌握也太完美了吧?
事发后,我的家人已接受我的道歉,他们的宽容给我很大鼓励促使我向前迈进。由始至终,我并没有标榜自己是完美的,至少我愿意面对和承担错误,而拒绝被劝阻去仿效“看起来像我、听起来像我,但那不是我”的做法掩人耳目。目前,事情已告一段落,至于坊间盛传的其他传言都是不实的,那只是对方对我展开的另一轮人格拭杀。
曾有一家生活杂志就我的事件,拉队到我的前国会选区拉美士进行访问。访问结果让我非常感动。绝大部分受访的选民一致认为那是我和我家人的事,表示不会因此否定我的付出。我儿子竞选期间,也没有人挑起有关课题。

我国一位反对党领袖因被控鸡奸和贪污而锒铛入狱,今天被喻为国家的改革家。我想,可能大部分人民认为他是人格拭杀的受害者,而愿意重新接受他。所以我说,朋友,人非圣贤,我们都会犯错。但错过以后,生活还得继续下去。

Regarding the sex dvd that has been, I notice quite frequently commented about in my blog, I have this to say. I have already admitted and apologized for it, both to the public and the people who matter most to me, my family. I have also resigned from all government and party posts. While I stand to be judged on my private life, it seems to be immaterial as to who the perpetrator behind this tape was. I guess it is unhealthy political culture to expose my private affairs. After all, I must say that the timing was exquisite, holding it onto the tape for a few months and releasing it for maximum impact. Well, new year did indeed start with a bang for me.

Since my family has accepted my apology, I will continue to move on. I do not claim to be perfect, at least I choose not to behave by saying although I was advised by my lawyers “It looks like me, it sounds like me but its not me”. The rest of other rumours are false that is continued by my “friends” to assassinate me.

I was deeply encouraged by a survey done by a local magazine in Labis where they went down to interview voters on the dvd issue. Majority think that it was a personal matter that involves me and my family more than the public. During the election when my son contested for the Labis constituency, this issue was not raised at all.

One of the leading opposition leaders who went to jail purportedly on sodomy and corruption is today hailed as a reformer in the country. I think majority of rakyat of Malaysia think he was a victim of character assassination. So friend, we make mistakes but life has to move on.

As I've said before, I will continue to move on and you are entitled to your judgement. The people who matter the most to me, have already forgiven me. Life goes on.

Are we still at this???

Firstly, for the record, you did the right thing by admitting that it was YOU in that little video. Nope, I didnt view it although I was forwarded by friends a copy of that video. Ya la, out of respect for a decent man who has the courage to admit his actions and also, what the flying fcuk is there to see? You cant be hanging from the ceiling while doing it, can you? YOU DID??!! OH MYYYY!

Anyway, my personal opinion is that you should have stayed on as the Minister of Health. Yars! Yars! Yars! Yars.. some hollier than thou buggers literally FORCED you to resign.. I know. But in my opinion, I expected you to give it a good fight and not just let them trample you all over like that! You should be judged by your peformance in office as a minister for the health category in Malaysia and its living souls and not for your performance in bed or otherwise. That! should be left to your wife/gfs/whatever for crying out loud!

As for who was/were the evil knievel(s) who did the taping, well, I am really not bothered with such low breeds of pariahs. No respect for basic human laws of privacy and dignity shouldnt even call themselves human ok.

So, glad to hear you have move on. You are korek... we are all human, we will make mistakes along the way.

Dear Dr. Chua,

I am really disappointed that we are still at this TOPIC!!!! I don't understand why people keep talking this topic as there are other important issues to discuss. Like what you said, life has to move on. Frankly speaking, when i was inform by my friends from Batu Pahat about this incident when i was in london, i got a shock and i don't belive that you will do this. My first thinking was, you must be framed up by your politic enemy. You can choose to deny but you didn't, this is where i admire and respect. And later on you resigned from all the post, in fact, i disagreed with what you did because as a Rakyat from Batu Pahat, i only judged the Minister based on the ability and contribution, rather than their life in private. Nobody got the right to judge anyone's private life.
I hope this will be the last time that we talk about this issue. Life has to be moved on and there are many other challanges waiting for you. LET'S US MOOOOOOOOOOVE ON. ALL THE BEST Dr. Chua

Thegame said...

People of labis accepted you because of your capabilities which is remarkably very very good compared to many in the BN.We as a malaysian feel none the less let down.You should have been a good example to all malaysians but you choose to let your animal instinct take control of you.Its important malaysians reject you and set an example to all politicians to shape up or be shipped out.I dare you to publish this but some how i doubt you will.I for one feel terribly let down by you.

有话直说 said...

自308政治大海啸过去以后,很多巫统,国大,马华党的高层都开始改变方向改变作风,先从巫统说起:

再益在上个月甫上任时,建议政府向被革职的前联邦法院院长敦沙列阿巴斯以及5名被革职及停职的最高法院法官道歉.

再来就是国大党主席三美威鲁,立场急转弯,今日开腔吁请政府释放5名遭内安法令扣留的兴都权益行动委员会(Hindraf,简称兴权会)的领袖。他指出,其中两名被扣留者应该获得提早释放,即目前病重的耿卡哈兰(R Kenghadharan),以及在本届大选中选为民主行动党哥打阿南莎州议员的玛诺卡兰(M Manoharan)。

接着这位就是我们2008年最佳大汉贱(黄老鸭)
馬華總會長超级大汉贱(黄老鸭)支持成立獨立司法委員會,全面處理法官的委任及擢升,他同時也認同霹靂攝政王拉惹納茲林“司法復興”的號召。

  他指出,在第十二屆大選期間,出現一些纏繞著國陣的不利議題,其中一項就是20年前司法公正及獨立判決的問題。國陣必須正視目前司法界所面對的問題,並以實際行動推動司法復興,加強人民對司法制度的信任。

  “馬華支持成立所建議的獨立司法委員會,必須以透明化的制度委任法官,並在公平的情況下,擢升最有才能及廉正的法官。此外,政府也須在不分種族的情況下,委任更多擁有良好執業素質的律師擔任法官。”

  馬華堅持三權分立

  黃家定強調,馬華堅持聯邦憲法中的三權分立,即立法、司法與行政三權分立,以有效保障全民的利益。

  他進一步表示,民事法庭的法官必須拿出司法勇氣與智慧,依據憲法中所闡明世俗法的本質,作出最正確及公平的判決。法官對各案件必須一視同仁,不受本身的信仰及價值觀所影響,或屈服於極端言論的壓力。

  他最後強調,法官必須秉持司法公正的精神,堅持“法律面前,人人平等”的原則,以及在不分種族、性別及宗教的情況下,遵守及實踐憲法精神

这一刻是人民非常反感的时期做出非常假的行为........!!!

(我想在这问问大家,(itz right????)

其实我想在这跟大家先腾清下,本人是一名在新加坡工作的马来西亚人民,为什么我会飘扬过海???以前的人都所谓"人离乡贱",是我想要的吗?还是环境所避的?不过在这次308政治大海啸过去以后,我有了临时性的改变,现在的我觉得马来西亚找到它的弱点了,就如敦马哈迪所说的“锯掉烂脚来挽救生命”

马哈迪根据自己行医的经验指出,医生治病就是要给病人要吃药,即使药难吃,病人还是得吃药。他形容,巫统现在就像严重烂脚的病人一样,惟有将脚锯掉,病人才有活命的机会。

所以还是那一句"到黄是第一步"

拿督蔡细历All the best....

Malaysian Joe said...

Doc,

U still sore about this? Still need to dwell and remind people about it?

Put it this way, my take is, its none of my business that you go around gallivanting as long as your family forgives you its ok with me. In fact, it doesnt matter if its ok or not with me! I am not family... so I have no bloody right to judge you..

But please do not dwell in it anymore .. worse I am beginning to think you are trying to gain more sympathy rekindling this matter. Geddit?

Justin said...

dr... let me reassure you, we dont care how many women u have bedded... i am a man too and i know i have my needs. So long as u dont commit criminal acts or get your hands dirty in illegal trading, u r free to stand in public and do what u r doing.

let me say this again, i admire your courage. You could have put up a face mask and held onto yr previous posts, but look at OKT... what's the point?

oh yes, thank you for acknowledging my previous comment.

KIMHO8 said...

本人是個華裔家庭主婦,非常不贊同
以Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim
來做這場比較。他是含冤入獄的,
沒有任何VCD還是DVD可作對證!

婚外情會對某個家庭造成悲劇和痛苦傷害,
忠貞於婚姻也是每對夫妻所要遵守的法律。
有了家才有國,如果婚姻與家庭都不能維持,
何況是治理國家大事!

道德觀念包括了責任感,誠信和忠一,
那會影響一個國家社會問題的安寧。
孩子是國家未來的主人翁也是國家的棟梁,
如果沒有良好的榜樣會導致上樑不正下樑歪.

如果行得正,站得正;
那來明槍暗箭,敵人也無從下手。
若要人不知,除非己莫為!

LohSH said...

Although Dr Chua has been proven beyond reasonable doubt that he has an intimate girl friend, he is definitely not a porn star.

Let us move on, as Dr Chua has.

As the 3/8 election results have taught us to be more tolerant of different views, and since Dr Chua has written another reply on his DVD issue, I take this opportunity to reproduce an article, written by me some time ago but not published yet, here to give another perspective on looking at such an issue.

从克里斯南三美事件反思蔡细历事件

在短短的一个月内,我们的社会发生了两起关联政治领袖的事件。先是蔡细历因涉及被偷拍性爱光碟而引咎辞去官和党职,后是刚发生的国大党州政要克里斯南三美遭枪手暗杀。

这两件事情有个共同点,那就是事件的主谋以非法和不道德的手段去达致个人的目的。很明显的,虽然两起事件的主谋尚逍遥法外,他们已个别达到最终的目的,那就是当事人蔡细历看似已经赔上自己的政治事业或生涯而克里斯南三美则无可挽回的赔上了宝贵的生命。

克里斯南三美是在没有选择的情况下赔上了性命。凶手已经执行了要置克里斯南三美于死地的任务而达到最终的目的。不管克里斯南三美被枪杀的背后的原因是什么,他绝对不需去面对这样的下场。但是凶手已得逞了。

蔡细历在性爱光碟曝光后承认被偷拍,他向国人和家人道歉但表示不会辞去官职。从记者会上可以看出蔡细历认为这起事件是他私人的问题而他是受害者,他没有必要辞官职而让别有居心者达到目的。最重要的是他可以得到家人的谅解。但在面对各方的舆论和事件对党和政府可能引起的负面效应或其他因素后,他隔天毅然选择辞去官职和所有的党职而归故里。

社会对于蔡细历是否需要辞去官职为这起事件负起责任并不是完全一致的。没有人知道公众的对立意见的比例是多少。但从他辞去官职和所有的党职可以看出他已接受辞职是他唯一的选择,社会包括政党不能接受他不符合道德标准的行为。

但是这两起事件的发展却也显现出了一个社会问题:恶势力的得逞。

社会舆论蔡细历事件所凸现的道德问题到底是私人或公私混杂的问题也是相对和不一致的。

蔡细历所犯的个人过错是否必须以辞职来谢罪呢?

问题是假如社会认为蔡细历必须为他自己的道德问题负起道义上的责任而辞去官职,这是否意味着我们的社会
一. 不责问而愿意接受不合法和不道德的偷拍行为呢?
二. 有意无意的让恶势力得逞?

电视台也公然播放光碟的片段。电视台是据於什么理由拥有这些非法光碟,而甚至播放一些片段?他们的做法是否合法或符合道德标准?他们是帮凶吗?还是落井下石?

我们的社会是否可以以一个理性和符合法治精神的方法去处理和解决这起事件而不让不法之徒达到最终目的呢?

接受不法之徒以非法和不道德的手段所揭露的个人隐私问题本身是否已存在着严重的道德矛盾呢?这样做对社会处理复杂问题的理性和成熟性是否会无所帮助而反为社会添加一份危险性呢?

在判断蔡细历应该如何负起责任时,我们的社会或许可以对以上些问题加以思考和探讨。社会不能让可恶的恶势力轻易的得逞,因为不法之徒正处处在待机危害公众的利益和安全。

蔡细历被证明是一个拥有亲密女朋友的高层领袖,但是他并非是一个拍色情片的明星。

虽然说只要不犯错就不怕别人的陷害,可是我们的社会和政治问题是否是那末简单和单纯呢?更重要的是正如克里斯南三美的事件给我们的启示,一个人的过错所必须付出的代价是否应由不法之徒去设定呢?

KIMHO8 said...

Dr Chua,

你不能控制和選擇你所要的意見和真心話,
那是巫氏集團的茅招,等于自挖墳墓!

年輕人不會接受封閉的交流,他們的意見
對你倆父子很重要,勝負在於他們的手中。

部落格是個很廣大又方便又經濟的溝通工具,
好好的使用它吧!

不透明化=不戰已敗

KIMHO8 said...

Do not compare yourself with Dato's Seri Anwar Ibrahim. This is very unfair to him, he is a honourable man.

He has been betrayed by the party,
misjudged by the court and deceived
by the coward nation like us. We should fight for him on the behalf of justice because he is Malaysian too.

Victory in 12th general election has proven his leadership capability without any doubt.

I don't pity him at all but I adore his spirit and his courage that no one can deny!

glokal said...

This issue should be put to rest. However, if Dr. Chua wants to challenge the president in the upcoming poll, it will be an issue. What is Dr. Chua's family value view now? Do you still think it is ok to have "girl friend" as long as it is not known to the public?

Benjamin Pappu PPP U32 said...

dr. chuah u has done great thing being a HEALTH MINISTER. we MA'S had got we supposed to get dr. Our crical and post basic allowences. 3 MA'S are now pengarah hospital.
thank u so much for given us the change to lead the heathcare.

BENJAMIN PPPU32

pat said...

Dr Chua,
It doesn't matter as your good record as Health Minister beyond this mess. Well, private life is part of political life? Yes it is.
Anyway,glad could 'see' you now in bloggers world. Keep it up man! Don't let yourself down. I still want to read more opinions from such ex-leader like you.

Melissa said...

I refer to Kimho8:“......Do not compare yourself with Dato's Seri Anwar Ibrahim. This is very unfair to him, he is a honourable man.”

I dont think dr chua is his original post initiated any comparison between his wrong doing with Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim to get pitty vote. I comprehend his message as "yes, I was wrong, i want to apologise which i did, i have a right to move on with my life and if my experience and efforts still needed and accepted by the community, i shall be given another chance to contribute jusat like anyone else in the country."

I am not a fan of any politician or leader in Msia.In fact i am sick of the whole bundle regardless BN or PR. I just want to pinpoint some of the viewer's comments are so subjective and it could misled the rest and it could have more damage than the tape itself.

In the tape incident, if you are judging the one who make mistake,now we already put dr chua on judgement table, but dont you think the one who recorded secretly, circulating and the culprit behind the scene should be comdemned fiercely too? But what the most malaysian did was dont bother but commenting on dr chua, his family, his girlfren for their own curiosity and self-shiok only. I am sorry if any of you feel offended.

Till now, none of us help to find the bad guy behind.....

But for Dr Chua, i think this should be ur last piece to talk about the tape. From now, you should let tis behind.

sheon said...

i still hold my reservation on whether it is indeed you that is behind this blog. however, my comment is sincere.

corrupt officers in power will ruin the country. incompetent officers in power will ruin the country. but i do not think an officer in power that has ex-marital affairs would ruin the country.

what happens within the four doors of your private room is no concern to the public eye.
Your escapade has been unpleasantly revealed, much to the disgust of the public (on privacy, and also why a highly respected snr minister was caught in the act), you being a responsible person must without a single hesitation, take responsibility over your action. and the fact that you did come forth and claim your guilt, earned my respect. this however, is the irony that is laid before you, stay in power..this will be your Achilles heel, givin you neverending PR problems. leave politics..you gain your respect as a man, but lose all executive powers.

what is MCA doing to the allegations being hurled at the party? is MCA really the representation of chinese in the country? why is the public perception on MCA = corruption??

jessying said...

we do accept your appology
but u cant continue to be a minister.

we do RESPECT AND PROUD of u that u do and admit attitude

and we do hope you to understand that u MUST be able to bear the consequence when do did the act (and we are not in the position to say its good or bad)

And the consequence that u will be facing, we do not want a Minister / MCA president who has a wife having an extra maritial affair. Cos we treasure family values and appreciate family members!!!

By you not being minister, doesnt means we do support u anymore.


what is the point of making a comeback when u have decided to let go. Pls enjoy the rest of ur life and forget the political world. and perhaps u wanted to be the watchdog.

Learn to let go.

Vincent Wong said...

Hey Doc.

I think you missed the point. If you want respect you have to earn it.

Everyone takes a fall every now and then, if you want to be perfect you would have to be Jesus.

What we want is a leader that is honorable, with integrity, and discretion. You did almost all the right things except for saying that your only regret was working hard.

Thats just not a very smart thing to say. If you had not said that statement about regretting on working hard. We would all have voted you back in "in-no-time" at all.

I think you are one of the smartest politician around thats honorable; i hope you have learnt your lesson and use greater discretion (wisdom)to handle the challenges thrown at you.

I think most Malaysians would love to give you a second chance my advice to you is to choose wisely. Don't sell us out with the "silent" politics of MCA. Btw, there's no such thing as "silent" politics; politics that are silent = "no balls" and "sell-out".

Be a man, admit your mistakes and move on.

Best Regards,

Vincent

KIMHO8 said...

I would like to offer an apology
for over criticising in this matter
but I hope Dr. Chua really leave
all this behind and move forward
together with his family for the better tomorrow as a good husband, good father and a good politician too.

I agreed that when Dr. Chua was
in the position of health minister,
he has did plenty favourable jobs. He even tried to protect medical plan isured for better medication and much more. Good job!

I have attended the Sin Chew Daily seminar on the 11/3/2008.
The amazing courage in Mrs. Chua has made her stand up straight
in the public together with their son. Not every woman can do this!

Dr. Chua, do cherish your wife
and never compromise with Beban
Negara because they will never
ever change!

Remember the Bagan moron.
They are unqualified gang!

vagus said...

it was a personal issue, mistake as it may have been, not a political one.
i admire you for having the integrity to admit things instead of the usual games of denial people play. though what really matters is how you and your family see yourself, i'd suspect that you still have a big following of supporters behind you.
I'm a malaysian physician based in the US; i think you've done a lot of good for the healthcare system back there (well, aside from the privatisation Act, but no one ever gets a perfect report card :) ).
keep up the good work, doc.

CHARLIE KC said...

When my MIL suffered tongue cancer and was recomended to Treatment in GH. Surely from the system and professional system, our KLGH had improved much. The only is queue and long wait, pity those who do not got the means to jump queue. It is simply too many people from far to come for almost free treatment. We got so many to do in our Medic care for people.
The fact is the ratio of Dr vs population is still far from standard. But for many aged people, they buy time to save $ for private treatment whcih they can never afford.
Now another young man take over, he is toking installing CCTV to monitor. As a Dr yourself, i am sure you are aware, Dr Just work like hell, non stop and they are simply exhausted. Monitoring and distrust is not the key to improve time. We need to look at traffic, statistics and ever increase 'poor' swinging to GH for saving and ever expensive private care.
We need more DOctors, and proper control of foreign patients.
many people respect you.
I salute you.

I wonder the current H.Minister seek your mentor to manage some teething issues.
He should. so replicate can be avoided and people will see the real benefit.

hopeful he got no new agenda without influence from someone who had no ideal how the health system . every cycle starts another learning process for new minister...wasei

cy97 said...

With due respect to you Dr. Chua, i still think that it is inappropriate to compare yourself with the case of Anwar Ibrahim.
First of all, from the beginning until now, he has never admitted that he committed the offend. Moreover his case was dropped since. His judgement is still very much a subject of controversy and a grey spot in our judiciary. Many foreigner medias gave opposite comments on this case, such as Anwar's Trial on youtube.

Having said that, i must salute your courage to admit and take responsibility and to resign as minister and MP. Your action clear shows that you have much higher moral value as compared to the like of CKC and OKT.
All the best!

Alan said...

I can't believe there's so many who defended you on this issue. But I can't forget what you said after annoucing your resignation. You said that you learned that honesty does not pay? & what was your greatest mistake?

How can people trust you again? They're just plain stupid or are either using.

You can voice out so frankly about so many issues because now you have nothing to lose. It's human pscyh.

What else will you speak up for? How about this that no MP will raise? The government's pension plan is the main reason of corruption. You got a brain!? Think about it.

albert1951 said...

What's the fuss all about?? Sex making only and it is no big deal!You believe that all our Ministers are chaste and divine not to have tryst with their girl friends? No hooker habits??Please don't make me laugh because I am a serious old man with no sense of humor.Our Chua is just an unfortunate victim in this tape scandal only.Let say if he is not caught in this incident,he would have continued dating his darling sweetheart to bed and he still performs his duty as a Health Minister.

Love making is a very wonderful and sacred thing and I am perplexed why so many people seem treat it as indecent and immoral affair.Maybe I doubt these people have contracted ED(erectile dysfunction) and feel jealous of our virile Chua?

GobloKing said...

Good you acknowledged what you did and move on..BUT you know what?

Your piece does not read as if you were truly apologetic !

In fact, dare I say this? You sound emmm...Arrogant?

Yes it is yr private life

Yes you apologised to yr family

BUT..

You are/were a public figure

By virtue of being a PUBLIC figure Much is expected of you, your ethics and behaviour

Heck! You even represented the chinese community no?

OK so we know you are not the pope and it isn't fair on you because you are human etc...

We should let you move on...etc BUT you were still a Public figure and a Community Leader.

So Dr Chua - Morals are Morals, Ethics are ethics

How do you trust someone with matters of the state when they can betray their family for a piece of meat?

Think about it

What happened to you is NOT a private matter. It was a matter for the country because of WHO you were.

Think about it...
Don't ...
the ppl who supported you,
the ppl who believed in you and the people you serve(d) also deserve an apology?

Take a leaf fr Bill and apologise to the People

nissy said...

Datuk Seri,

I respect you for being honest in this issue, but I really hope you could continue serving the country as the Health Minister. You are knowledgeable did a lot for us the medical workers and also contributed a lot more to the health standard in Malaysia.
I see you as a good politician. Thank you. I'll always support you.
Please come back.

kiddokit said...

I agree with gobloking.

You are a very PUBLIC figure. A Minister. An MCA leader. Someone whom somebody else is willing to entrust their own life and family's future to. What you did having an extramarital affair definitely was NOT a private affair, much as everyone else seems to think so.

It is pretty dismaying that Malaysians, and those commenters who write here, are naive when it comes to serious issues like this. The way they keep on harping it is your private business, it makes me think we Malaysians truly have no more scruples.

Imagine one of these days (assuming you are still a Minister) and the Government launches a campaign of fidelity and honesty. And you are a speaker and you speak on wholesome topics. But you are an adulterer! Really does give a whole new meaning to the word 'double speak'!

And now, I hear you may wish to go for the MCA Presidency. Don't you know you will be the laughing stock of Malaysians (especially the other races, perhaps) should you win it. Why? Because the President of MCA has a sex video to his name! Confound it!

So, Dr. Chua, much as I harbour no personal animosity towards you or your family or even supporters, but let's call a spade as just that, shall we? You shall have to bear this adulterer baggage the rest of your life and it won't do you good to keep on harping "IT IS MY PRIVATE AFFAIR" thing. And the other naive Malaysians out there should stop this silly chant too.

To use Anwar Ibrahim as a gauge to say all people bounce back somehow, yes, that's true. But the difference between him and you is as clear as night and day. He was a victim of heinous political shadowplay. You are just being you when you showed the public what nakedness is.

I wish you well, Dr. Chua.

AMIR MAHMOOD said...

gobloking has it right on the money.

Because of who he was, his actions become public issue. If he was another sod bedding someone else, who gives a rat's ass.

But once you are a man appointed by the people, then sorryyyyy... you can't go fuckin someone else and then come out admitting AND expect the world to worship your manly admission.

Was it wrong? YES. So? What's the debate?

If YOUR SON-IN-LAW did it to YOUR DAUGHTER, would you be livid?

If YOUR WIFE was the one bedding another man, would you be upset?

Sorry Chua, my experience as a journalist with you means I have seen your arrogance in action. The I am a BN minister so don't mess with me look...

To me, you got what you deserved. Yes your right is to ask for forgiveness, the people reserve the right to NOT accept.

And please.. don't try to raise the intent of the person who filmed and distributed it. Yes he had motives but it DOES NOT make your act any holier. Sorry.

sinnersaint9 said...

Dear Dr Chua

There's none perfect in this world, take comfort in that, its unfortunate that it had to happen to you,basically you were framed, never be worried bout these moral custodians and moral policing by society, they are have double standards.... check out www.osho.com.... it'll help you to be at peace within, the most difficult thing to achieve.

We are human and are bound to slip one way the other.

And maybe all your readers must visit the site to enrich their own lifes.

Cheers, btw Malaysians have moved away from racial politics, so to renew and rejuvenate, MCA must reinvent or its will be dead in the coming election.

Cantona 7 said...

Dear Dr Chua,

I do hope that it's really you who's writing this blog cause otherwise, it's not a very cool thing to do.

Some of my friends (doctors) told me about their 'misery' while serving the govt hospital. Your action in raising their allowances (although I heard it was because your son who is also a doctor had asked you to raise it..) did help lessen the burden a bit. So, I guess you did good deed there.

But I was surprised with your 'hollier-than-thou' remark. Not a cool thing to say to those who think that you should step down. Don't take a swipe at people who used to have higher expectation of you. While we sort of know that our leaders are not without 'baggage', we also expect certain codes of conduct from them. When you got caught, it's only right that you should step down, which you did. Maybe by now, ppl will have lesser expectations of their leaders, but that doesn't mean that the leaders can rest on their laurels.

About your political comeback, if there'll be any, I thought that's not a good idea. Although I would understand if you're planning to make one. Staying home without any outlets for your intelligence might not be good for your health. Hey, blogging is definitely a good choice.

Well Dr Chua, you've certainly taken a lot of flak for your out-of-office conduct. But I'm guessing being a man that you are, you can take it all in your stride.

Adline A. Ghani said...

I don't really think the public can 'move on' as much as you'd like. Sex scandals are things that generally come back to haunt you. We live in a world that craves sensationalism. There will be other scandals to outshine yours, no doubt, but once you've done it people won't just forget. Someday, someone will dig it back up again at the opportune moment. Though it may not be my place to judge, I am still entitled to my opinion and I am personally disgusted by what you did. Just sex? No big deal? Gee, if this was a female minister, I don't think you men would be as forgiving. What about morals? Sanctity of marriage? Family values? If you're thinking of making a comeback... I agree with Vincent Wong, who said "If you want respect you have to earn it."

I fully agree and concur that the sex DVD is your personal life, and NO one has the right to bring this up against you - even if it's for political reason. What you did was the right thing, in the sense that you confessed, rather than evaded the issue, or worse, lied about it. On this count, you're an honourable man.

For those who criticised you, let them ask themselves if they have not done any 'wrong' act.

What you did was indulge in sex - and it was between two consulting adults - and your wife and family probably knew and forgave you for it. So what's the big deal about this vs visiting a brothel?

No BIG deal!

"Since my family has accepted my apology, I will continue to move on."

Datuk Seri Dr. Chua,
You shouldn't worry about your future in politic. You have been an excellent leader all this while and I could not give up the idea that you would become the President of MCA soon.
The only ones who do not accept your apology are those who are responsible for the "DVD" set up. I have been observing your movements since the scandal broke out, and I think you've been frank, straight forward, and naively honest. These are the basic elements of good leader. You had handled your case like a doctor should: amputated the "bad leg" without hesitation, applied with strong doses of medicine, and finished off clean and neat. This is the quality that current MCA leaderships are lacking. The current leaders are just not good enough to compete and work with whoever the political groups emerge in the future. The leader who is only spending time on eliminating his potential comrades is sinful, and betrayal of the trust from the grassroots.
