A funny thing happened at the Kelana Jaya polling station yesterday. As I walked past the BN tent with my family in tow, I jokingly asked the head honcho who happens to be a neighbour of mine,"OK, where's my MONEY?"
O boy, I will never forget the startled look on his face. But the man quickly recovered his composure, patted my arm reassuringly and said,"Later, cap'n, later. Please go and vote first".
Anyway, the rakyat has spoken. Not only has the Opposition Barisan Rakyat denied the ruling BN government a two-third majority in parliament but is now set to form the government in 5 key states. Syabas to the people of Malaysia.
I was at the Blog House in Damansara until late last night with fellow bloggers Tony, Haris, Ewoon, Shar101 and others to monitor incoming election results live from Malaysiakini and also from other sources at various polling centers in the country. Each good news was greeted with loud cheering by all present. Someone even brought a cake to celebrate Samy's birthday and departure.
There is hope for all of us yet.
