“I DO HOPE THE PENANG CM WILL HAVE A LOOK AT THE TAXI DRIVERS’ PROBLEMS AND HELP ELEVATE THEIR LIVELIHOOD”
Just back from Penang. May I say to all Penangites – you made the right choice. When I was there the fellow paid UMNOputras were giving a loud welcome present to Penang’s new Chief Minister. How nice of them to delay my taxi and made me stand under the hot sun. Wanted to seek a meet with Y.B. Jeff Ooi but my sms didn’t reach him as his mobile may be off. Neither did I get any reply after it was received, can’t blame him cause DAP needs to set things right fast!
Anyway Penang is BEAUTIFUL and need not have those Mega projects like PGCC which by the way locals dislike. Its congested enough and Penang is more than super high density hig rise buildings that add no value to Penang other than making it look more like KL which is not to be. If they do need to build anything it should be on the mainland not the island.
Penang needs a good public transport system so locals and tourists are able to travel the island hassle free and enjoy its historic and natural beauty as well as the people. Ah! the people, lovely until you mention PM or KJ…. boy oh boy! you would be entertained for hours. Now I understand why Penang fell from BN’s grip.
Want to find the best source of information you need not look further than your Taxi driver. Not just any Taxi driver, I was in a few driven by MALAY/MUSLIM drivers. They could have spent the whole day giving me the run down of PM & Gang while touring the island. Instead of telling me historic legends of Penang they can show me which, where and when someone made some huge profits from some huge NEP project. “Tengok sini-lah Dato’ Hijau ini makan duit rakyat” one said, to my amusement the development there didn’t look any bit as expensive as mentioned.
“Ini semua perompak rakyat,” “Saya undi DAP lor” “Taip-taip hari media BN memburukkan pembangkang, semua pun jelak”, “Sini chiak, sana chiak howlian lor” “Ini Umno buat luan nia, sudah su mahu mogok sikit pun tak gentleman” “Tengok Koh gentleman lar” – Wow, Penang taxi drivers really can speak Hokkien leh! I’m so proud when I hear a Malay speaking some Chinese as we can speak Malay anytime but hearing them speak means more as it shows Malaysia is really capable to progress without being race centric. Barisan Rakyat sprit does live in many and I’m sure its very much embedded now in Penang. They can see beyond race and really want a better life. My salute to the Taxi drivers’ of Penang.

DEAR UNCLE LIM,
IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT RACE HERE’S MY 2 CENTS…. YOU JUST MADE A MOCKERY OUT OF US CHINESE!
Stop all these race based and anti-islam ideology and work for a better nation. That is why we voted every opposition party in. Else only DAP will win and none for PKR or PAS. To us there’s no problem who’s MB as long as he/she is clean and able to lead us all to progress and most important be fair to all regardless of race and religion.
This is your DAP objective (from DAP website)
The vision of the party is to establish a peaceful and prosperous social democracy that can unite its disparate races and diverse religions and cultures based on:
a Malaysian Malaysia concept by forging Malaysian race with
universal moral values,
offering equal access and opportunity;
democractic governance and rule of law;
creating wealth and distributing wealth equitably; and
fighting against corruption.
The Mission of the DAP
Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of Malaysians by bringing about positive changes. To do that leaders and members must be united, have a vision focused on our ideals and principles, congregate talented people who are – economically competent; and with the ability to deliver efficient management of the civil administration.

In regards to the post by Elizabeth Wong on “What are they trying to hide”, there were incidents in some districts offices where hardcore BN supporters warned department staffs to leave as they tried to remove computers from each department. Reason being told is its BN’s property and they do not want Oppositions to get their filthy hands on them. I presume there more to it than just the property but the contents in the computer that’s more important. What’s inside we won’t know unless some staff from those department is willing to come forth with more information about it.
Fortunately, some members of the media caught this on camera. Unfortunately, we can’t march right in to stop them because:(i) we haven’t been sworn in;
(ii) police has cordoned off the state office since Saturday night.
