Showers of 'No' have no effect on Yen Yen

Tourism Minister Dr Ng Yen Yen said that her feelings were not hurt by jeers received when speaking during a Chap Goh Meh event in Malacca on Sunday.

"No, I'm not hurt. You (the media) are making a mountain out of a small hill," she said when met at a function in Petaling Jaya today.

"There was 10,000 people. If, only 10 said 'No', what is there to worry?" she said.

Given the size of the crowd, she did not expect everyone to be on her side.

"I don't expect 10,000 to support me. We are (living in a) very democratic and open society. I didn't take it too hard. 

"I would be very naïve to expect 10,000 to say 'Yes'. It doesn't affect me at all," she said.
