We Didn't Head Home Directly ...

We were supposed to head home but Fauzi told us in the morning that Guan Eng had extended his invitation to the bloggers to attend a press conference during last night's victory ceramah at Markas Induk, Permatang Pasir.
I had decided not to stay back for this ceramah as it is my norm to make a disappearance after a job done. Fauzi stayed and he related to us of the appreciative responses he received from all the leaders who attended this ceramah. 'Eh! Macam I menang pilihanraya kecil ni!' as his eyes gleamed with satisfaction. Yeah, that was exactly the feeling that most of us felt. Especially small bloggers like us pitting ourselves against those chameleon bloggers... Yet, The Truth prevails over their low stinking spins and lies. This Unity is here to stay.

Anyway, I wouldn't miss this chance of attending a Chief Minister press conference. We must give him face also la... for recognizing the alternative media. We wouldn't have attend any of this press conference if it is being called by Najib or Muhyiddin as we despise lies. For Guan Eng, he is a good man. He have the people's interest at heart.

I ll just let some pics narrate what we did that day...

Press Conference With The New YB Salleh Man

A stroll within the vicinity looking for lunch with our local guide. Interesting place with priceless historical landmarks scattered all over. This is what makes Penang attractive to tourists. Heritage preservation must be strictly enforced.

Now the most interesting part on our journey back. Gus suggested that we have dinner at one restaurant in Kg Sejantung, Kalumpang. It did not materialize as planned. Perhaps, it was fate that brought us to Magickriver to catch up with our spiritual brother, Antares. What could be more pleasant and relaxing than this magical experience. Sitting at the veranda of Antares's house which nestle at the edge of a virgin jungle overlooking the Selangor dam. What a sight to behold. To top it up with good company.

After a great dinner in Kuala Kubu Bharu with Antares, friend and family, we bade our farewell and touched base at about 9:55pm. A small welcoming party organised by our close brothers and sisters was in order.

Thank You All For The Memories And Support.

Pictoral Tale Of Permatang Pasir Polling Day...

I know it is a bit late in coming out with this posting. But considering the work we did walking the ground daily and ended up dead tired by the night, I guess it's excusable and it's better late than never.
Back to work and sitting at my desk with the satisfaction feeling still lingering on inside me... I don't know what else can beat this feeling from a battle well fought and won. I am not even bothered with those post mortem that have been churning out after the result. The real satisfaction comes from all the ground work. Being able to work and walk in unity with the PAS people and other bloggers against the might of Umno, this result couldn't be any sweeter in any other way.
For the by-election record in the peninsular, Najib 0-7 ; Muhyiddin 0-2. It is a victory for the people against the rotten system.

Some Scenes From Around The Polling Centres

Kubang Semang

Bukit Indera Muda

They were paid. Caught them putting on the t-shirt

Permatang Pauh

Permatang Pasir

Why were the FRU brought in here in Permtang Pasir? The cops have been unfair in enforcing some EC rulings. Those motorcyclist wearing party's t-shirt passing through polling centre here were stopped. Either they were turned back or asked to remove their t-shirt. But when it was obvious that the police were targeting only PR supporters, they crowd jeered at the police. Thus, they mobilized the FRU. A standoff began until the police decided to back off and enforced this ruling fairly. It seemed that different polling station have different rulings. Perhaps, it is up to the commander in charge of the respective polling stations. No flags were allowed here but we can see their goons marching with flags at Permatang Pauh freely without police intervention. Thumbs down to the cop in charge here in Permatang Pasir and Permatang Pauh. Talking about good cops and bad dogs.

Hired Hooligans At Polling Day

First sighted in Kubang Semang where Anwar is going to cast his vote. These mat rempits from Pemuda Umno Kepala Batas came in more than hundred in a convoy of motorcycles. It is obvious that they are just boys being hired to create some tension. I commended the police for keeping these boys at bay. They parked their bikes in an area gazetted for PAS supporters. But why weren't the FRU mobilize to curb with situation like this? These boys were later found causing skirmishes at other polling stations later in the day as reported by Viveg.

This other group, also Pemuda something else, trying to duplicate PAS's Umit Amal troops but all for the wong reason. They were there to create trouble rather than keeping their supporters in check. Why didn't the police stop them from marching? The polling has started 2 hours earlier. They were causing jam in a already congested road. And I caught them instigating a fight with a single Amal boy. If only they have the balls to go one on one... I don't think they have any balls at all. Effective only in big group.. Those who instigated comes from one common clan, the Indian Muslims. So, is Umno protecting the Malays? More like Umno is against all that are against them.
