Sour grapes.

Assemblywoman and boyfriend broke up recently and he has moved abroad.

KUALA LUMPUR: Was it the work of a spurned lover?
This is one of the leads in the investigation into the "kiss and tell" episode involving PKR Bukit Lanjan state assemblywoman Elizabeth Wong (right) which surfaced on Sunday.

Photographs of Wong, who is also Tourism, Consumer Affairs and Environment executive councillor, are being circulated and those with knowledge of the incident are pointing fingers at her former lover. The two allegedly broke up recently and he was said to have moved to another country.

Wong has refused to speculate, although several reports quoted her as saying that it was her in the photographs and that the pictures were taken in her bedroom.
Wong, who lodged a police report after being told of the photographs, apparently taken with a camera phone, called the entire episode an "intrusion of privacy".
Photographs made available to the New Straits Times showed Wong asleep with her glasses on and another of her in bed with her eyes closed. She was partially covered with a sarung.
The incident sparked an outcry from politicians from both sides of the political divide with most alleging that it was a clear-cut case of "intrusion of Wong's privacy".
Selangor opposition leader Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo, however, contended that Wong must resign from all her positions.
Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the state executive council meeting on Wednesday would discuss the incident.
"I am waiting for the police report. We will be discussing this incident at the state exco meeting on Wednesday," he said at the Parliament lobby yesterday after attending the opening of the new Parliament session in his capacity as the Bandar Tun Razak MP.
"I think it would be unfair to make any decision at this time without proper information as it could be misconstrued as someone trying to frame the victim.
"The best we can do is to urge the police to investigate the matter properly," he said.
Never wrong.
Malaysia political scenarios is really good. Now the people are offered with this yet another juicy story.
And after reading about sour grapes that emerged out of relationships-gone-wrong sectors, i wonder whether does she really know this guy well before 'inviting' him to her bedroom?
So, should we blame the poor woman for her carelessness?
Or blame the guy for being such a dork and sour grapes?
Or perhaps blame the only thing that cannot answer us back but can gives us pictorial details?
And perhaps, the only thing one can blame is the technology itself?
We just cannot trust no one anymore.
