HCFoo votes

Today is the day that Malaysia decides.

Unlike states like Penang or Kelantan, it's pretty obvious which party dominates the electoral campaign in my hometown, Kuantan, Pahang. The situation here are completely different than what I've read about other 'hot states' as the people here seems to show undivided support for Barisan Nasional.

Mom, Dad and I walking towards SK Semambu passing by BN camp.

My family and I decided to go out early to cast our votes. The five of us went to different schools. The time taken to cast our votes were pretty fast. We spent only about 5 minutes, almost doesn't need to queue up.

Quite a number of people already lining up according to their lining stream.
I'm glad I'm not on this stream.


I'm next in line to exercise my rights.

Here are the candidates that I had to decide on:

Parliament (P82 Indera Mahkota)
1. Salamon Ali Rizal Abdullah (BN)
2. Azan Ismail (PKR) - won
Total voters: 51,235

DUN (N13 Semambu)
1. Nancy Khong Saw Gek (PKR)
2. Pang Tsu Ming (BN) - won
Total voters: 25, 427

My polling station at SK Semambu was pretty happening as there was a huge turnout when I arrived. Even Pang Tsu Ming was there greeting voters. His popularity is huge here gaining support from Malay and Chinese voters and volunteers. PKR and PAS remained very quite (just a few of them) in the background. DAP is completely invisible in Kuantan, not even a single bunting or poster.

Coming back to hometown to cast my vote here makes me humble especially seeing my mother meeting many of her Malay customers here who are BN volunteers and supporters. For your information, my mother used to run a saloon in Jalan Mahkota for more than 40 years.

This is the first time casting my vote and it was a great experience. I have only one hope. The future government will GET what majority rakyat wants.

Going Back to Kuantan for Election

I'm already disgusted by all the propaganda and drama by both Barisan Nasional and the Opposition parties. And seriously I have enough of all the bias posts in the blogosphere too.

It's time for me to go back to my hometown and do what I have to do. I'll be voting for the first time and it's an easy decision for me. It was a decision I have made since day one. But for most friends in states like Penang and Kelantan, it's going to be a tough call. I can't wait for the results.

Happy voting and have a good weekend!

Rafael Nadal visits the Burj Dubai

Here is a magnificent picture of world number 2, Rafael Nadal, signing autograph at the world's tallest free-standing structure, the Burj Dubai.
Fearless on the court, the world number two was at ease as he took the external lift up to the 158th floor – at over 600 metres – with Greg Sang, Director, Projects, Emaar Properties, who answered the Spaniard’s questions about the $1 billion tower.

“It’s incredible, insane,” said Nadal, who helped fasten the bolt into the steel construction and signed his name on the steel structure. “I was a little scared when I was in the lift but from the top it was unbelievable. I was reassured to learn the lift will be on the inside when it is completed!”

Nadal will meet Philipp Kohlschreiber (who made quite a mark at the recent Australian Open) in the first round today at the 2008 Barclays Dubai Tennis Championships.

Unlike Roger Federer who was defeated by Andy Murray in the first round yesterday, I hope Nadal will have a great performance here. Perhaps he'll be able to reach for the sky and grab his first title this year. What else is a better motivation than the Burj Dubai building itself.
