Chev said...

Hehehe, it's time for him to rest (after a good bath), after serving so many terms :D

I followed the news on Malaysia kini from 7 pm till 4 am. LOL. The local tv channels are kinda "hopeless", only reporting the victory in Sabah and Sarawak for the first few hours. Thank God there is internet :)

Hehhehe, get to know the news from Malaysia kini at 8 sumthing but the news only came out on tv around 10 sumthing :D

:D :P ;)

Chev said...

Yeah, i have been following the latest updates from Malaysia kini from 7 pm till 4 am. Wow, 9 hours in front the computer :D

Nice Wind of Change..
Love the "breeze" :)

Yeah, and this is the first time that BN was denied 2/3 majority in Parliament and the first time they lost so many states to the opposition :D

pink cotton,
Yeah loh, and Sabah and Sarawak contributes more than 1/3 of BN's parliament seats.

Chev said...

Hehehhe, u suddely sounds so "Malaysian" :P

Everyone is just too fed up with the current government and they want a change, for a better tomorrow :)

I know Opposition will win lotsa seats but didn't except they will win so many seats till able to take over Penang state :)

Yeah, internet has opened our eyes. In fact, I hardly read the mainstream media nor watching tv during the election campaign period. Can get more balanced news from internet :)

Chev said...

A new dawn, and a new era :)

Hopefully will see some changes in few months time :)

The massive turn out (>60,000 participants) during the DAP-PKR talk last Thursday night proved that Penangites want a change, for a better tomorrow :)

day dreamer,
piak Day Dreamer for ocipala-ing here. I haven't eat Longkang Laksa for few months liao.. *Slurp*

The Wind of Change is here :)

Chev said...

I can't believe myself too when I read the news on Malaysia kini that the opposition had taken over Penang around 8 sumthing, and leading in my other states and parliament seats...

Yeah, let's pray for a better tomorrow, a better government and a better Malaysia :)

Yeah, but i didn't except that Gerakan and MCA will be totally wiped out in Penang...

Yeah, most of us are happy and elated with the news but not everyone. There are still someone who is upset with it ;)

Chev said...

hehehe.. and piak those people who spread rumours and threatened that 13 May 1969 might repeat if the opposition wins :D

Despite the political tsunami, there are people who still lives in denial and refuse to accept the truth ;)

And earlier on, our PM said let the Malaysians showed their dissatisfactions through ballots :)

Chev said...

hehehe, when will be our next Longkang Laksa Date? ;)

Wah, now is March liao..
u will fly back to Malaysia in 4 months time. Time really flies, huh? :)

When will u visit Penang?
Wanna see u squatting down and slurping the piping hot assam laksa next to the longkang. LOL
