Wow...the results are out. BN wins the nation, but lost in Penang, Kedah, Perak and Selangor. Of course, Kelantan is still Pas's stronghold.
For our area, the Opposition wins. A bit of a no brainer, since we saw that the BN are not really fighting to keep the area as theirs. We saw the DAP and Parti Keadilan coming up to meet with the people...going even from house to house, while the UMNO only came to have a meeting. Even then, not all of the loyal UMNO supporters are informed. Only the committee's members are informed. Of course these people are given gifts and stuffs. Padan muka la. When you are so arrogant and don't want to meet the common people, don't really expect people will still give their support la.
What that I really feels funny is that, BN only won Penang for the last 2 elections. Then, the BN forgot the supporters and their previous hard work...just take the supporters for granted. Yes, there are a few ceramah and meet ups scheduled, but a lot of the makan-makan are only for the committee members. Even the loyal supporters are neglected.
Hello, my mum was Timbalan President until she got fed up with all the corruption and cronism. Even the nite before the election, she informed me that the President gave t-shirts and stuffs to 3 of the committee members that would not jaga our area's election center. What the heck? 10 people are elected, 7 that will work their ass off and another 3 will take the benefits that should be given to those that really concerned about the election. What to do....it is the President's will. Saper pun tak berani nak lawan President. Even tho it is corrupted.
So, based on that...even that small job pun diorang cannot do. Would you think anyone in their right mind would elect that Party to govern?
Of course the Malays are fed-up with x-Ketua Menteri due to the opressive jajahan. Asked to move location of Surau, cannot get...that is our area la. You can ask other Malays for their gripes. Aku malas nak layan.
So, the people had spoken.
If BN wants to win Penang again, they should really chop off these 'lalang' that eats at the core. All the votes are important, even the measly Malays.
Good luck Barisan Alternative.
May the Force be with you.

Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
