And congratulations to Jeff Ooi, a fellow blogger who has now made it to Parliament!!! :)

PM: ‘We’ve lost, we’ve lost’ - 4.12am

These were the only words which Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi could muster when quizzed on the ruling coalition’s shocking defeat in five states.Abdullah was posed with the question during a press conference at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur. He was accompanied by his wife Jeanne, deputy Najib Abdul Razak and other BN leaders. The prime minister added that he will make a media statement after analysing the results in detail.

Anwar ushers in ‘a new dawn for Malaysia’ - 4.08am

A triumphant PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim described the victory of the opposition parties in five states and its breach of Barisan Nasional’s two-third majority in Parliament as “a defining moment” in the history of the nation and the opening of “a new chapter.” “The people have voted decisively for a new era where the government must be truly inclusive and recognises that all Malaysians, regardless of race, culture or race are a nation of one,” he told a packed press conference at his residence in Segambut, Kuala Lumpur.“The people have expressed in no uncertain terms that they want accountability, transparency, and the rule of law.”

Not happy that BN won but we're happy that they only got 60 percent of the votes. BN must be wondering now, "what have we done wrong?" Heehee! Don't let BN be big headed! It's time for the government to SHAPE UP & do their job!

Well, What a wonderful job the Opposition have done. BN really got a trashing this time.

That is what you get for not listening to the people.

Hopefully the newies show how it is suppose to be done.

And well done Bloggers who made it as MP.

Live Up to What Wakil Rakyat Means!

I was watching the Malaysia's election results being announced the other day. I am glad that Anwar got so many supporters. I think that the opposition parties are really smart to join force with one another. This will form a stronger force. I think this election will really somehow change the future of Malaysia, for the better, I hope.

Cheers,
