Elections. Like some Celebrations or events, it comes every four years without fail. And you can sense it is near by following a few symptomatic signs

1) just look outside and see any newly tarred roads that has not been tarred for years.
2) In the night, strangers would wear caps or T-shirts which have non commercial logos like rockets, scales and even an inverted green spot, hanging flags and banners on innocent street items like trees and bridges.
3) Find the source of all these and you will find very friendly people sitting under a makeshift tent. And their genuine assistance and smiles only come every four years.
4) All newspapers and TV would have short commercials or funny stories like how they helped the Rakyat, would be on all the time.

And that, folks, is Politics in a nutshell. To me, that is. I don't see the point in all this Elections thing. And not only that, if they're doing so well, why do they need to drum it to everybody, "Looook! I can plant a small tree! Look everybody! I can plant a small tree!" or, they will put a full page to "remind" their people to vote for the rigth party or they will pay the price. This is sickening. In the end, the usual will get their seats, go back to their castle in the clouds and start hammering the Rakyat for more money. As for the Opposition, they will bicker, break and then merge alliances and so on.

Sheesh. What a waste of time. Right now, things are what they are. There are no better political parties in Malaysia which anyone has confidence in voting for. Although some has good people in it, but the central core is bad. So, what else is new?

When I vote, I will follow my instinct. If a party is advertising too much or making too much "noice", this means, just like a bad product, is crap and they will use the ruse to cover the eyes of the prospect. In the end, the prospect will be confused and naturally, go for the competitor.

Some guy parked his 4x4 and tried to get votes.
Wanted to get his pic yesterday morning while
he was standing on a small lorry but I missed
