PETALING JAYA, Aug 30 — A man’s classifieds entry has made several local Twitter users giddy with hope for a romance between him and an unkown woman after a chance meeting during the May 9 polls.
The man, who only identified himself as Gan, put out a personal ad in Sabah-based paper Daily Express to reach out to a woman he had met over three months ago while waiting in line to cast their vote.
“I’m Gan looking for the lady that I met in the St Francis Secondary School polling station on election day,” he wrote.
“You were so sweet & kind to shelter me with your umbrella, we had a good chat,” he continued. “I’d like to see you again.”
