Don't Play with Racial Cards

Scenario 1
“There are a lot of factors that occurred, effects from the support of the Chinese to BN. The tsunami that I mentioned earlier, this tsunami of the Chinese community, led to large numbers supporting the opposition,” Najib said.
Chinese Tsunami?

P124 Bandar Tun Razak, Abdul Khalid Ibrahim won majority of 11,832 votes over Tan Kok Eng.
P100 Pandan, Mohd Rafizi beat Lim Chin Yee with a majority of 26,729.
Khalid Ibrahim and Mohd Rafizi Chinese? Tan Kok Eng and Lim Chin Yee Malay?

Note that these areas are urban areas with significant Chinese voters.

Scenario 2
"I think all people in Gelang Patah know Lim Kit Siang. We know his history, he likes to move around, move from one place to another place. He is not quite loyal to his constituency. In addition, Johoreans, especially Gelang Patah people, know very well the politics practised by DAP which (itself) is divisive, racist and chauvinistic.” Muhyiddin made these remarks at a press conference after meeting more than 6,000 Chinese school heads and teachers in Johor Baru this afternoon.

“DAP is divisive, racist and chauvinistic.” So, MCA is not? MCA is compromised by ALL-CHINESE members.

P51 Bukit Gelugor MP, Karpal Singh represents DAP and won with a a majority of 41,778.
P46 Batu Kawan MP, Kasthuriraani represents DAP and won with a majority of 25,962.
P48 Bukit Bendera MP, Zairil Khir Johari represents DAP and won with a majority of 32,778.

Are they Chinese too?

Singapore GP 2012

This year we decided to take a slightly cheaper tickets compare to 2011 on Bay Grandstands. Just to sit our butt on some chairs. 

Buying the tickets were hectic. There were so many colors to choose from. Can you see the big screen TV from your seat? In a F1-Fanatic way, do you want to see acceleration? Or deceleration and braking?
So I said, lets seat above the tunnel..!! There's likely to have an accident there. (Confession: We F1 fans just want to watch, multi-million carbon fibers blown to smithereens, that's what we paid for right?) So, I thought it was a good choice, but it wasn't. The accident occurred below us. Anyways, it was just a small accident, no biggy. Narain Karthikayan hitting the wall. Anyhu, we didn't take many pictures. But here are a few. 

Ours seats.

Jay Chou on Friday, Maroon 5 on Saturday and Katy Perry on Sunday!


We decided to rent a FanVision, to listen to Mark Brundell clearer. (The 2012 design is aesthetically much better than 2011 ) 

There was a driver's parade on Sunday.

Seats were full on Sunday!

The Tunnel!

This the place where Narain Karthikayan hit his car. 

Taking picture at the scene of the crime

And finally, my review of Bay Grandstands. (Zone 3)

- Value for money, you get to rest your tired legs.
- Food Stalls at Zone 3, you don't need to berebut with the a sea of people at Zone 4.
- There are stalls selling official merchandises but limited designs.
- Able to access Zone 3 from Marina Square.

- Seats at small and close to each other. (I picked the sides and the last row to avoid suffocation)
- No access to Zone 1 and 2. (No Popeyes or Gelato Ice-creams)
- The FanVision Booth is located far away at Zone 4. The tiny FanVision stall at Zone 3 runs out of stock pretty quickly.
- Seriously damn congested after each races like seriously, seriously. 

- Pick Dark Blue for Acceleration or Dark Green Deceleration. No point picking Yellow, the straights is so short, you hardly see any top speed. 
- Buy early, seat nearer. (Seating selection is automated, if you are alone, its easier to get front seats)
- Pick seats near to big screen TV if you have no plans to rent a FanVision (not available in 2013).
- (Top Tip) After Sunday race, turn right and go on to the track to avoid congestion. 
- Last but not lease, bring earplugs and raincoat.

Drowning In Your Affections

Drowning in your affections,
without a care of the world,
reality is tough,
humanity is depressing,
equipped with knives,
but you took care of me,
brought me back to salvation,
in your sanctuary,
filled with your undivided love.

Night Classes

I almost fell off Mamat. He's a little emotional. Not as co-operative as last week. It's probably because he doesn't like to go out at night. We were cantering and he tripped on his back leg. I had an instant flashback when I tried to regain my balance. I flashback to the day I first took my riding lesson, flashback to the day I told myself that one day I'm gonna fall off a horse, I even flash forward and saw myself at the doctor's room..! But none of that happened.. Haha..! Even the instructor commented on my balancing skills..! Yay..!

The black prancing horse..

"Outside Rein! Outside Rein!!", shouts the instructor.

"Geee, he's abit shouty isn't he?", I whispered to Massa.

It was a cloudy day, just a perfect day to go for horseback riding. I couldn't help but laugh at the whole scene. Massa and I are going at our own pace and the instructor was practically shouting on top of his lungs to get us to listen to him. Massa likes to trot fast. I guess they should have named him Ferrari instead..
