Reporting from ground zero in Kuala Terengganu

January 17, 2009


9.29 Update PAS has taken an unassailable lead. Yes, the good people of Kuala Terengganu have risen to the occasion. Pakatan Rakyat has taken one more seat in Parliament and we are that much closer to Putrajaya. This is my last report. Want to join the celebration on the streets. Will post on the victory […]

This is an envelope. Ordinarily quite innocuous.

DAP hosted some 600 Chinese to dinner again last night at the Ocean Restaurant. Well DAP hosted, but the diners paid for it. Yes, RM30 each.
