Last Remaining Communist in Malaysia

I was on my usual waterfall hike last weekend near the Grik/Baling area. After a 3 hour hike, we found the waterfall, beautiful and mesmerising as all waterfalls in Malaysia.
On the way back through the thick and dense jungle, I thought I saw something moving in the bushes. Curious, I went for a closer look and I couldn't believe what I saw !!
A COMMUNIST !!!!!!!!!

He was pretty nervous when I approached him. I told him that all the communist surrendered years ago and his leader, Chin Peng is now living in Thailand and that the Soviet Union has fallen. He wouldn't believe me and said that all my stories were capitalism propoganda.

I also asked him why did he look so young and healthy after being in the jungle for almost 30 years. He cooly took a sip from the stream and said, spring water.

After taking pictures of him, he asked me to not show his face as this would anger his supreme leader, Chin Peng.
Before I left, he tried to brainwash me with some Communist propoganda " Communism is a socioeconomic structure that promotes the establishment of an egalitarian, classless, stateless society based on common ownership of the means of production ...." I listened and told him I'll think about communism when I'm back in town.

Next time, I will come back to persuade him out from the jungle. Man, 30 years and still fighting the war. Respect!!!
