Election Day

Today, all Malaysians go to the polls to cast their votes for the 12th General Election 2008. Nicejellybean woke us all up early in the morning because she wanted to be the first in-line at the Polling Station. Lucky me .. I tagged along. We arrived at 8 am but the queue was already very, very long. Apparently everybody is early and excited to vote this time round. Before March 8, the Public was informed not to wear red which is the colour of the opposition party (Democratic Action Party) but they did not say that doggies, kitties or hammies can't. So, this morning I wore my red dress to show our support. Luckily the police on stationed there did not make a big deal when they saw me. It took around half hour for Nicejellybean to cast her vote and then we all went back.

The results will be coming in after 7pm and we are monitoring the progress over the internet as there seem to be some news blackout on TV and radio. No doubt the ruling Coalition Party (Barisan National) will sure win majority votes but whether the win is the same as in previous election where they had won an unprecedented 90% of all seats in Parliament ???

Wow, you sooo brave to go out on that day ha Mimi? Well, good results actually! Although BN won, they only got 60% of then votes. Not even 2/3! Which is good. I think BN must be wondering now, "What did we do wrong?" hahaha! GOOD!!! It's about time the government woke up!
