An Interesting Incident for BN to Note....

I confess that I still buy the newspapers as it forms a sort of morning ritual.
Somehow reading the papers in one's hands is a totally different experience from reading on the computer screen.

Today, the elderly Malay gent was clearly agitated. I was about to pick up and pay for my papers when he blurted out something like, "Crooks! Must kick all the BN out".

He was not a complete stranger as I had met him at the same shop a few times. So I replied "Shocking, isn't it?" and pointing to the headlines on the Lingam tapes.

"But the folks in the kampung will still support for a few RM".

"Those people are blind. The old folks do not know." he replied as he went home.
Think I will have more interesting conversations with him in the near future.

This is the first time I have heard a near stranger voicing his feelings so openly.
Maybe Malaysians are finally waking from their careless slumber.

OBAMA's message is short and sweet for Malaysians. "WE WANT CHANGE!"

I know of Malaysian friends, relatives and acquaintances based overseas and all of them would like to come back to Malaysia one day as they really love this country very much and after all, it is motherland.But unfortunately the current political scenario, existing government among other factors like corruption, discrimination and crimes
are really not encouraging to move back....WE ALL WANT A CHANGE NOW. DENY BN 2/3 MAJORITY. VOTE ONLY THOSE WHO CAN CONTRIBUTE TO OUR NATION AND NOT THOSE WHO PLUNDER THE COUNTRY'S RESERVES.OPEN YOUR EYES AND SEE.

The really sad part is that the rakyat has been deprived of internet access and hence, a more balanced diet of news/information to make an educated evaluation of the performance of the political parties.

We must vote in the best interest of the country and its people, regardless of incumbent or opposition but without fair and equal access to media, the dacing seems to be berat sebelah.

hj angus,
I was chatting on YM with my ex teacher who is a chinese from JB yesterday. Sensing the sensitivity of the matter he opened up only after finding that I hate the current leadership in the government as much as him. Lets just spread the word around so that more people will vote opposition this 12th GE. Then only they will know how to respect the citizen of a country.
