I was doing my rounds of photo taking in town when I chanced upon the most patriotic person in Sarikei at the Merdeka food court. He's none other than the self proclaimed Sarikei No.1 from Merudu.
He was dressed gaudily with his trademark hat but this time it looked like he was paying tribute to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. He wore a red long-sleeve shirt, a black hat and hair fringes that escaped from the hat onto his furrowed face.
He normally wears a tag with the text "No. 1, Malaysia. Tun Datuk Patinggi Lau Siew Hung" when he goes around town to campaign for his manifesto.
He is a colourful chap and the most dandily dressed man in town. Hail the No. 1 of Sarikei. Numero uno.
