IT'S 3pm and way past lunchtime, and Nurul Izzah Anwar has finally found time to have her meal. She is joined by her two children and a family member.
But her phone is ringing incessantly. PKR leaders and members are shocked that she has just announced her decision to quit as party vice-president.
Some think it is fake news. Others think that this is just theatrics from her and that she would eventually retract her announcement after a flood of orchestrated pleas from members.
But those who know the three-term Member of Parliament well are aware of her stubborn streak. If she has made up her mind to do something, it will be tough to dissuade her.
Her parents, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, and other family members have all left for the Philippines for their first real family holiday in a long time.
"Yes, dad and mum are aware of my decision. It's not something that's decided overnight," she said. And that was all she was prepared to say on record, beyond her press statement.
Nurul Izzah spent the entire morning working on the press statement to ensure it was properly crafted, and released it just after 12.30pm.
And now that last piece of business had been settled, she was frantically trying to book a flight to join the rest of the family.
The resignation was without doubt a bombshell, and yet, her close friends and supporters weren't surprised.
Recent developments in Pakatan Harapan, and even within PKR, had disturbed her, and she felt let down.Always the idealist and reformist, and a child born out of the Reformasi movement, she must have felt disappointed with some of the things that had taken place in recent times. After all, she did not get her Puteri Reformasi moniker for nothing.
Nurul Izzah is unlikely to completely open up to party members and the media about what she probably felt is the "derailment of the reformasi spirit" in the new Pakatan government. She is well aware that her statements and remarks would have far-reaching consequences - she being Anwar's most outspoken and most political child.
But there had been signs. She shot off a Twitter message, just days ago, on the defections of Umno MPs to Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, which is headed by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. She didn't make any specific references but the message was clear.
"Betrayal of mandate given the 9th of May insults those who are loyal to the cause. Our party was attacked before by defections. Wouldn't want that kind of pain and antics upon anyone else. There is no meaning to democracy if Malaysia is governed by elite-based politicking," she wrote.
Six more Umno MPs have quit the party since the resignation of a number of Sabah Umno elected representatives and division heads last Thursday.
Her father took a more measured tone.
"Pakatan Harapan must maintain its integrity and principles as it faces the prospect of crossovers from Umno.
"We are a democratic country, but we must maintain our integrity as a coalition with principles that stand against corruption and racism.
"This is why when I was asked by Umno MPs about joining (PKR), I was very cautious. I told them to stay where they are first and let us discuss the matter in more detail so that the rakyat will not have the perception that we are shifting from the principles of our struggle.
"They were worried that Pakatan's spirit would be eroded, but I gave assurance that Pakatan will hold on to its principles even if we have new members," he said after chairing a Sarawak PKR meeting last week.
The exodus of Umno members into Bersatu, which one of Nurul's supporters described as "the instigation of defections" and "hampering ideals of reforms", had an impact on her plans.
There have been other pent-up frustrations, including the appointment of former inspector-general of police Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Noor as a facilitator for peace talks in southern Thailand.
"I unequivocally oppose this appointment of a brutal assaulter of an innocent man as he lay there blindfolded and handcuffed - left without medical attention for days," Nurul Izzah wrote on Twitter in August, referring to what had happened to her father in 1998.
Abdul Rahim was eventually charged with the assault and received a two-month jail sentence. He later apologised to Anwar and his family.
