May the voting force be with you

Managed to find a place to log on in cold cold cold Florence and the first piece of news that reached me was our wonderful govt's plan to abandon the use of indeletable ink. So all the money used to purchased those ink is now wasted... all those money... our money!!! Another typical say-one-thing-and-do-another way of doing things.

Can we ever trust them over anything?

A quick check of my inbox and I am so surprise to see so many election related mails from people whom I have not spoken to for so long and whom I never thought they would be interested in politics... looks like this is going to be a very interesting election indeed.

I have to say I miss being back home and missing going to 'ceramah' and being a part of the so called 'rush hour' of the 12th general election. From the way I see it, the govt is really panic shit and is using all sorts of tricks possible to ensure that they stay in power. Whatever it is, I believe we Malaysians will truly show what we are made of this time...

May the voting force be with you all...

UNTUK PERHATIAN PARA PENGUNDI SEKALIAN

Analisis terbaru merumuskan Barisan Nasional berada dalam keadaan yang amat tertekan. Takut kempen tak sampai hala-tujuan.

Terpaksalah teknik pengundian berulang kembali dipraktiskan. Hantu-hantu belaan dikerah pastikan kemenangan untuk calon Barisan.

Maaflah, dakwat penanda tak dapat sambutan. Mungkin sekadar gimick dan hanya hiburan. Bagaimana rakyat Malaysia mudah diperbodoh-bodohkan.

Bangunlah dan buka mata rakyat sekalian. Tunjukkan kita mampu untuk hentikan... segala salah guna kuasa dan pelbagai penipuan.

Beranilah UNDI untuk satu perubahan.

Selamat Menunaikan Tanggungjawab Kepada Seluruh Rakyat Malaysia Yang Berkelayakan.

Pilihan Raya Umum ke 12, 2008
Referendum Rakyat Membenteras Penyelewengan.

Oi! Go enjoy your hornidays laa!!

Donch worry, I'll vote wisely. I won't disappoint you geh...

Dan-yel said...

Missing the fun? You damn sure you are.

It's a tipping point of nerves clouded with uncertainty.

The ball's in, and the roulette's spinning. Expect more drama and suspense this Saturday night besides the usual happy hour retreat, waking up in the next morning would totally be different.

Remember remember 10-eleven.

was at the ceramah in Han Chiang High School, Penang.
its history in the making for DAP and Malaysia.
check out the picture at: themalaysianinsider.com

Tsu Lin said...

Zewt, all the talk about voting and you are not voting?

william wang said...

The shit had hit the fan, again in Han Chiang, estimated 30-50 thou pple converged to this ceramah, braving the rain, mostly wearing red as reported and Rm123thou collected to share the campaign fund for dap, if this is not solidarity, i dont know what is.

narrowband said...

It's getting quite exciting, and some people have begun stocking up food in their homes. Tell me about that!

myop101 said...

zewt,

MAFREL just confirmed that the army and police personnel are not voting in secrecy, hence, it is likely they are "compelled" to vote for BN...

Rev. Sivin said...

"Help the government, Vote the Opposition"

I heard that last Sunday and it's still ringing in my ears.

Suit Lin said...

I wish I had time to listen to the ceramahs than just read about them online.

Too bad you missed it too.

william wang said...

We know you will somehow get in touch with us, cos this is under your skin. Have a pleasant holiday.

Jermayne said...

Hi there!!! Looks like you are having a good time there in UK!

I am actually excited about voting (since this is my first time) and even more to see the results of it.

Take care!!

Susu Kacang said...

Angie Tan said...

anyway, the force is strong but i hope that the light will defeat the dark of zombies voting...

Sam said...

DAP won The Kuching seat again ooh.
[Crap day for Msian Badminton]
[AND MU lost]

=S

kyh said...

The Oppos won 5 states, including my home state kedah and Penang where i'm studying. Hope to see a real big change here. :D

narrowband said...

You must have been following the updates. Interesting but unsurprising results.

Helen said...

What? You are enjoying beautiful Florence and missing all this??

Aiyah, I tell you, it's Wonderful over here. Everyone from kopitiam uncle to professionals are telling those arrogant bastards enough is enough.

Muaks. :-)

kyliemc said...

there is really a change for sure...i'm sure you've seen the results,huh?whoa...surprise surprise.. :D hope things will change.. and of course hope that none of my friends will cry or be disappointed when they apply for uni...

zeroimpact said...

Eyes opened
People awakened
It was a blast nonetheless, now is to see how well they do
Remember to be back for the next one
:)

mistipurple said...

congratulations are in order eh! malaysia boleh! penang boleh!

william wang said...

I am sure you know the election results in Pen. M'sia by now & the main reasons for their success. Great disappointment are results for Sabah & sarawak, Sabah in particular. The result for sabah doesnt reflect the sentiment of its ppl and the opposition DESERVED to lose. They cant even agree to seats sharing before the election, whatmore after. Hope they learn from this lesson.

william wang said...

Everyone of us is aware of what happened in Pen. M'sia but you may think, almost everyone is contended in Sabah, with almost clean sweep and yet this state is known as the poorest state in m'sia. Funny isnt it. Let me tell you, the opposition DESERVED to lose. They cant even cooperate before the poll what can you expect after. I dont blame the Sabahans just the egoistic oppositions.

mrbherng said...

Your trip might just be much more enjoyable if you had found out the GE results. Just amazing.

Lynnwei said...
