The in-thing now is no longer Astro’s ad ‘睇左啦’? or asking if you’ve seen Edison’s leaked photos ‘睇左未?’. It’s ‘Who are you voting for-ah?’. As much as we try to stay neutral or stay secretive, in some way or the other, we’re probably going to be roped into political conversations at some point and that’s when we have to take sides. And these conversations normally start with ‘U saw that speech by Mr XXX or not. That idiot dare to say something like that-ah’ or ‘Eh, I went to Ms. XXX’s ceramah..wah laueh’.
Anttyk and myself tried to do our part as Malaysians and went to volunteer ourselves as polling agents for The-Day. What is a polling agent? Basically, just to sit in the allocated classrooms on voting day and be alert to make sure no hanky-panky stuff happens. No we don’t get paid! (Hint Hint!!!!)…….Went for the polling agent training last night and indeed, it was an eye opener. I was definitely surprised by the number of supporters last night.
We’re now all geared up for March 8, 2008. Will write more about my experiences then – as a first time voter, first time polling agent.
Amidst all the hoo-haa on the elections, I thought might as well post something to show show la. The picture below, with our ex PM was taken late last year when he visited Plaza Mont Kiara one Sunday morning.
