12th General Election

Finally, the wait is over. The flip-flop PM who said "I work very hard, you know" told the press on Feb 12 that Parliament will not be dissolved on Feb 13. Barely 24 hours after that he announced on Feb 13, 12.30pm that the YDP Agong has consented to his request to dissolve the Parliament. Well, nothing to be surprised of considering this is not his first, nor last, flip-flop.

The Election Commission is having a press conference now, and the nomination date is on 24 Feb, with polling date on 8 Mar (other sources: The Star, NST). I will be taking leave to help out my party in campaigning and whatever else I could do. This is my small part in trying to effect a change for the better in this nation of mine. Better than sitting around bitching about things but not doing anything about it. DAP PJ is looking for volunteers, including polling and counting agents. If you're one who puts his/her money where your mouth is, please contact, or call/sms the DAP PJ Hotline at 016-2208867. We will get back to you soonest! All of us can, and should, make a difference, no matter how small. If not us, who else? If not now, when?

Another Chinese New Year...the year of the Rat

Wow! It was barely a year ago when I was downing cans of beer and glasses of cognac, and munching on dried bbq pork. It's that time of the year again where I get to see my extended family, have drinks, food, and be merry. Hopefully this year the traffic will not be as bad as the last 2 years (I'll drive back tomorrow morning). With election fever in the air, I guess this is also a time for us to rest and relax, and reflect on the year ahead vis-a-vis the years behind, and put our money where our mouths are. Whatever it is, I just want to wish you all a very happy Chinese New Year, and Gong Xi Fa Cai! And not to forget, a safer and more prosperous Malaysia fulfilling all of its great potentials!
