Alhamdulillah, the worst is over.

Congratulations to all our MPs who were successful in their constituencies.

Like most Malaysians, I stayed up late following the announcements and results.

Some of the panels they invited in the forums were quite good and spot on.

The people are no longer afraid to speak. They (the panel) have openly discussed matters that were once swept under the carpet in a hush, on national TV, not just mere recordings on YouTube or other private avenues.

It's a wake up call for our leaders.

It's a wake up call for the lazy bumps.

The Malay Tuans are in a shaky disposition now.

The non malay generations have established themselves for such a long time here, and they were born and bred in Malaysia. The Malay Tuans can no longer call this land, only theirs. The Malay Tuans can no longer use our ancestors as an excuse to remain Tuans.

Let's buckle up and speed towards the true MALAYSIAN generation.

Why Are We So Angry?

all the best to everyone voting tomorrow and i'm quite certain that ALL Malaysians will pray for a safe and peaceful election day.

much has been said about the possibility of chaos on that day. even my mom called me to come home on election day as she is worried about the worst. having gone through one world war and one sad state of emergency herself, i don't blame her if she is a little apprehensive of the whole situation.

i can't help but feel irritated by stories i read in the news.... tearing of posters, vandalising and destroying public property, throwing paints, fighting, slandering... even those in my residential area are no strangers to motorcycles speeding at the top of their exzos pipes shouting profanities and carrying flags of the parties they support.

makes me wonder though,..... do these people know what they're fighting for?

really..... what ARE they fighting for?

i mean, are we in such a severe state of oppression that we become advocates of hate, copycats of chaos similar to those portrayed on the electronic media?

i am not in favour of any political parties, or groups. in fact, in my career, i steer away from performing for events that are organised by political parties/organisations or those with political interest. that's just the way i am.

but picture this.... let's just say the opposition succeeds with the 2/3 majority.... what then?...

will we feel relieved that the "catalysts" of "change" are finally running the country.... ?

or will we tremble with anxiety knowing that the country's fate is now in the hands of the inexperienced?

GRANTED, we need our leaders to be more transparent in many a thousand things..... yeah, perhaps the alternative front SHOULD be given the opportunity.. ..

besides, you'll never really know what they're capable of UNTIL you give them the opportunity to run this country exactly how they have outlined in their manifest....

for all you know, they could prove to be worthy of our vote..


will we have the patience of FIVE whole years to wait for them to deliver their promises?

i vote for change, YES..... and i vote for PEACE..... and HARMONY....

but what some of our own people do, campaigning on behalf of their so-called leaders/parties - the governing party AND the opposition alike - is quite apalling.

i hope they get paid for it.
