My brother sent me links to some youtube videos which looks like it has gotten its inspiration from the Mac Vs PC ads. My brother is so geeking out on politics now…him being the family political pundit at home. 😀 My parents are taking his advice into consideration about which party to support.
As for the videos, all I can is “MORE MORE MORE!!!”
About the whole bloggers are liars hoo-hah:
About the government telling us to change our lifestyles when the prices go up:
About the sleeping PM:
About the stamp with the YB’s face on it (when was this?):
I didn’t know our countrymen are so talented!! 🙂
Some pokes at recent political controversies with famous karaoke tunes:
On the upcoming elections:
You think Chua Soi Lek will get left out? Of course not:
Hehehe, the title says it all, “Rought Little Indian Boys” :
I may enjoy fluff but I’m not a youth who is apathetic(overused!!!) about the current governing body of our country. I might have said somethings in the past that hinted of me being otherwise.
What I said on the buscrashnomore blog was that I didn’t want the website to be used as a political vehicle. Our agenda was for awareness and we have achieved that already.(As signatures have come to a crawl, we have paused work on it for the time being but will resume with it when we have discussed when to close the petition and hand it in.)
That aside, election season is fun! 🙂 All these many reading materials to indulge in. I’ve finally gotten a grasp about how it doesn’t matter if BN wins but as long as the oppositions manage to get more seats resulting in BN losing its 2/3 majority seats. With more seats to the opposition, it won’t be dominated by one party only! It should be about balance right? 🙂 And I thought BN’s logo is the scale….
I think with the advent of blogs in Malaysia over the past four years (2004-2005 saw the booming of the local blogosphere), the younger and the net savvy people are getting a better idea about how everything is being done in Malaysia.
As for me, my beliefs are few but simple:
1) New people equals to new ideas.
2) Louder voices from all sides(that matter).
3) The government should know that our faith is not stable(even if they win.)
I’m quite bitter that I’m not back home in Subang Jaya when elections, for the first time ever is SO freaking interesting!
There are two women contesting back home. For MCA it is an older lady who seems wise but there is nothing new about her agenda. However, DAP gives us our home grown Hannah Yeoh! Nevermind that she’s 29, a lawyer and lives in USJ but she was from my school too! 0_0 Someone from my school to lead Subang Jaya. I’ve always thought Karanbir Singh(Our head prefect) would be the first one..hahaha. Hello Karanbir! I hope that you’ll make us proud in the political scene when you’ve grown up!
You can claim that I’m being bias for supporting a younger person. But hey, when you’re representing the people you want the people to relate to you. You want my vote, you relate to me. 🙂 Hannah Yeoh was from Tadika Ladybird Subang Jaya, Sekolah Rendah SS19 Subang Jaya, Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Subang Utama and Taylor’s College!!! So was I! All four institutions!!
Read from the net that the ceramah held by BN wasn’t as interesting as DAP’s! BN’s one was carried out in a variety of languages where else DAP’s one was done completely in fluent English. Subang Jayans(new word! new word!) relate best when one speaks in fluent English. Subang Jaya is after all, ahem, as reported in the papers, the most IT savvy area in the country. I don’t know how language relates to IT but I’m going to just settle with the term ‘wavelength’.
BN garnered a few hundred(or was it a thousand?) members of the public at the ceramah but DAP managed to get like 3000 people to come!
It was even done in the playground that I grew up in! The empty field that I drive past every night was actually PACKED with people. They even made good use of the spotlights put up at the field. Thank you MPSJ for that!
Check out this picture from Hannah Yeoh’s blog:
Look at that folks, the legion of people from the country’s most IT SAVVY area!!
If I was home, I could probably hear the ceramah from my room..(and then walk out and join the crowd).
According to reports, it was very lively too. 🙂 People were having a good time and jokes were thrown about. Like when she made statements the public went, “Korek korek korek”.. I really wish I was there. To learn as well as be a part of something.
I’m also grateful that my town is so developed but I want to try something new. We all want to try something new. 🙂
My parents and brother are going for DAP’s ceramah at USJ12 tomorrow. It will be held at the padang there. 🙂 Go mingle and have fun with the thousands who want to change things together!
I couldn’t register in time. But I think it closed before my birthday… oh well. 🙂
By the way, the elections have taught me a new word: Incumbent. If it wasn’t for all the MP names after that word, I would have assumed that it would be something like a cucumber situation. Hehe. Mervyn told me what it means. My brother is more intelligent than me. *pouts*
