Some Words Of Advice For Pas

As the opposition coalition Pakatan finalises its candidate list for the 13th general election, I have a few words of advice for Pas.

Please do not try to push for a lion's share of seats you want to contest, if you are thinking to do so, because to do so is a sure way to frighten off the undecided voters, especially the Chinese and Indians.

If you grab the lion's share of the seats to contest among your other coalition partners, even those who have made up their mind to vote Pakatan may think twice.

Do not think that the Malaysian voters have accepted you in toto.

They have agreed to support you, generally, because they want a strong Pakatan to kick out Umno and the rest of their dinosaur brood.

Not that they love you per se.

Most of us do not mind voting for you because of Anwar's promise of a more inclusive Malaysia, where everyone, irrespective of race, will have a place in the sun and not being discriminated against.

Committing to fighting against corruption and for good governance, wise and prudent fiscal and financial management of the nation's economy, restoration of independence and trust to public and state institutions, among others, are the minimum we expect and look forward to from Pakatan.

You are not there (and this applies too to your other coalition partners PKR and DAP) to get more power for yourself.

You are there to serve the people.

If you think that serving the people is only secondary to your agenda of establishing an Islamic state and hudud, you should, in all honesty, leave the Pakatan coalition - even at this penultimate moment - even if this will mean that Umno and the rest of their brood will continue in power for another five, ten or fifteen years until the country goes bankrupt.

Please maintain a sense of balance and don't let the real prospect of getting to Putrajaya go to your head.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
