I’ve never really been an ardent fan of politics but this election put my curiosity to a high end and I’ve been reading a lot for the past few days. I’ve seen the word DUN but I’ve never really bothered knowing what it stands for until just now when I was reading Utusan Melayu and came across that word again, which stands for Dewan Undangan Negeri. I’ve learnt quite a few words just by reading during this general elections. You see words like ruling coalition, sworn in and etc.
And if it was so hard to memorize which states have Menteri Besars and which don’t during my school days, I’m re-learning history again today where Menteri Besars are for states that have a monarch i.e Sultan. So, the other states without a Sultan, which is Sabah, Sarawak, Melaka and Penang, you have the Chief Minister (Ketua Menteri). And Menteri Besar has to be a Malay Muslim, unless otherwise agreed by the Sultan.
I was watching Shahrizat short speech when she arrived to congratulate Nurul Izzah on malaysiakini.tv and I must say it’s sad to see her go. It’s also sad to see Koh Tsu Koon go, for he’s a true gentleman. Unlike some who are still bitter over their loss and unable to accept the fact.
I don’t even know why I’m writing about politics now.
Anyway, the below excerpt taken from MalaysiaKini enlightened my day in the office. I’ve been enjoying reading Malaysiakini for the past few days and I won’t be able to read it anymore tomorrow onwards unless I’m subscribing to it.
Quote of the Day:
Can you comment on Zam (Zainuddin Maidin)?
He won or lost? Oh, he lost. Well, the way he was campaigning was really funny, telling people to look at his face and how it doesn’t change. But I think that a face that doesn’t change can be very boring. Sometimes you must laugh, sometimes you must cry.
He was telling everybody “Ini muka tak bertukar, tak bertukar”. Who is interested in his ‘wajah’? If he was Britney Spears, then….
– Tun Mahathir
This is very funny. 😀
And since, the share market plunged dramatically today, I think it should be a good day to buy shares tomorrow for myself.
