It may appeared in these pics that this party may be Haris's but for all those who came, their mood werent any lesser. Haris was just lucky and I am going to make sure that I leave my digicam at home for the next do. I would rather be holding on to these sweeties than to hold that little metal box. Nevertheless, I was happy just to see Pete back to his usual self and ready to take the next 3 steps forward. Nothing really matters after that.
And we had a moment with God with Pat Lu reciting the prayers. Many of us were visibly moved by the prayers. Thanks Pat for the beautiful recital. It was a meaningful and touching gesture. For that moment, I really felt Him and He is watching over us. Amen to that.
And the party began with a birthday song to our evergreen Queenie followed by some loud sing along and some dances. Do all these look like a bon voyage to Kamunting party for Pete? Whatever it is, we certainly do know how to Rock and Rock, We did! Just ask those Umno goonies and they can tell you better.
More takes from different perspective here, here and here...

With the current sentiment, The Whisperer is confident of victories in these two coming by-election. To make matter worse for Najib, this time both victories will come with an even bigger majority. Najib's track record for by-election will be a total whitewash since Permatang Pauh except for his hostile coup d'etat over the Perak state government if we really have to take that into consideration. Even so, that does not justify his qualification to be our Prime Minister. Not to mention all other past cases that implicate him.. Sukhoi, Scorpene, Eurocopter and perhaps, Altantuya and many many more. These by-election shall serve as a referendum to those in power and shall be taken as the people has spoken. Suara Rakyat, Suara Keramat. It would be a grave mistake to ignore this Voice. Any attempt to bulldoze their way with power abuses would spell further destruction to the Umno already rotten image.

A number of Pete's hardcore supporters came in support and many more were with us in Spirit as it was a working day. All of us jostled into the courtroom well before 9am. We were told by the our lawyer that there are 25 appeals to be heard today and Pete's case is number 22th and 25th on the list. Another long day ahead, I thought to myself.
When the police brought in all the case related 'criminals', we were force to give up our seats and squeezed into other benches. Imagine the courtroom can only seat around 50 people at any one time. Some Palace of Justice, it is.
What really puzzles me during my visit to The Palace of Justice was that this so called palace house only 4 courtrooms and I was told only 3 are functional at any one time despite all its grandeur. Hundreds of millions of taxpayers dollars was used to built something of this magnitude and this is all we get. Something good for the eyes. Perception to justify the usage of taxpayers dollars. Blatant wastage to be topped up with morgue-like atmosphere except for some actions at level 2 only when the 3 courtrooms swing into action.
Looking up from the concourse area
The Justice Muzuem remained close
So was the Library
The Empty Nursery
The Ghostly Corridor

Markus In Happy Mood Among Anak Bangsa Malaysia
Markus Listening With Deep Attention
O LORD, do not rebuke me in your anger
or discipline me in your wrath.
For your arrows have pierced me,
Because of your wrath there is no health in my body;
My guilt has overwhelmed me
My wounds fester and are loathsome
I am bowed down and brought very low;
My back is filled with searing pain;
I am feeble and utterly crushed;
All my longings lie open before you, O Lord;
My heart pounds, my strength fails me;
I am like a deaf man, who cannot hear,
I have become like a man who does not hear,
I wait for you, O LORD;
For I am about to fall,
I confess my iniquity;
O LORD, do not forsake me;
Come quickly to help me,
- Psalm 38

Despite the absurd ruling of the Election Commission over the resignation of the 2 corruption tainted assemblymen and the heavy presence of money politics, the rule of Perak State remains on razor-thinned majority.
The question now is what would be the best solution to settle this issue once and for all. First, we must look into the sentiment of the electorate during the 12GE. The electorate then was voting for Change. Thus, the question of the electorate voting for individual and not party does not arise here. With this immoral crossing-over, the electorate had once been betrayed again.
Then we look into the stability factor of this coup d'etat. What if one or two months down the road there is another crossing over by BN state reps to PR? The possibilty is there and we may have to face this process over and over again until the 13GE.
Based on these simple factors, The Whisperer feels that a snap poll for Perak State would be the only viable and wise decision. Give the mandate back to Perakians and let The People decide once and for all. At the end of the day, both parties must abide by The People's mandate.
I trust HRH Sultan Azlan Shah has the wisdom and his subjects in mind to come out with a decision favorable to his subjects.
The Whisperer think there is more to this.. HRH Sultan Azlan Shah may have erred simply because of his failure to take 12GE consensus into consideration.The 3 frogs cannot be taken into consideration for their credilbility has gone down the drain and cannot be taken as representative of the people in their electorate. No snap polls but by-election must be held for this 3 electorates. With one dubious decision like this, all my respect for him went down the drain. All those past words of wisdom are after all just talks that don't walk. I feel sorry for the people of this country. Once again, the people's voice and rights is been neglected and betrayed by political hypocrisy.One helluva rotting stinking system we are having here.
The office of the Sultan of Perak, in a statement, said that after meeting all the 28 BN assemblypersons and the three independents, the sultan was convinced that Mohd Nizar had ceased to command the confidence of the majority of the state assembly members."If YAB Datuk Seri Ir. Mohammad Nizar bin Jamaluddin does not resign his post as Perak menteri besar together with the members of the state executive council, the posts of menteri besar and state executive councillors are considered vacant," the statement said.
The People shall rise again from this major setback and sweep across this land.
We are on our own now yet, We are not all alone. Stand up and take your stand. Together, We shall Rule! Say Yes To The Peoples' Power!
