It's been a while

It's been a while since I blogged... almost to the point of abandoning this blog. Many things have happened since I blogged. I got two kids now. I've gotten another car. Completed my South East Asia trip. Most importantly, we have a new government with the world oldest prime minister.

Reading back my old post does brings back memories. I think I should start blogging again. So that when I look back, I am reminded of my humble beginnings, and how far we have gone.

Saw this flashmob by Pizza Hut in front of their store. Cute. 

Hotel In China

A break from all the "you racist I tak racist post". Below are the brochure from a 5 star hotel in China. I would love to stay there for a week :)

*Brochure circulated by a 5-Star Chinese Hotel

Getting There:*

Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water.

You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests.

The hotel:*

This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organize social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with them self.

The Restaurant:*

Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.

Your Room:*

Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts.


Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers.

Above all:*

When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You will struggle to forget it."

My take on the General Election 13 Counting Process.

While everybody still emotionally charged calling foul of the SPR ballot counting process, I would like to make clear to those who are unaware of the GE13 ballot counting process. I do not speak for SPR or anyone - below are the opinions of my own.

Too many wrong information and rumors being shared around and it makes us look like sore losers. Worse, some takes matters in their own hands up to the point of attacking EC officers who are just carrying out their duties. Then what makes us different from the BN macai's?

I too, was sorely disappointed with the results.

While I am not sure how the postal vote counting process are done, the claims of magical ballot box appears during blackouts are very difficult to prove.

Compared to GE12, I would like to say that SPR did try to close loopholes in ballot counting process - though not all of it.

I am one of the Polling Agent (PA) and Counting Agent (CA) and this is my experience. And the counting process goes like this.

1. At 5 p.m., the Ketua Tempat Mengundi (KTM) will close the door, no more voters are allowed to go in and vote. He will then seal both the ballot boxes, both DUN and Parliament, tied it securely with cloth strings and further secure the strings with a sticker. He will then sign on this sticker and the PA will sign on the sticker as well. At this point, the CA takes over. Alternatively, the PA can be the CA himself.

2. Then, they will rearrange the room for the counting process. This takes about 30 mins. CA are allowed in the room throughout the process.

3. Then the ballot counting begins, until the end of the results. Depending on the stream, we can get the results by 8pm by tallying our votes with other CA.

So the issue of magical ballot box appearing does not make sense to me. There were only two boxes in the room at all times. Claims of ballot boxes being intercepted to the tallying stations are complete hoax. We count the vote in the classroom itself.

But why the results announcement took so long? Why there were disputes in some other polling stations?

My opinion is that -

1. We do not have enough PA and CA. DAP in Negeri Sembilan and Penang has the fastest results (we knew DAP won all the seats in N9 by 8pm by tallying our results at the DAP center) because we have plenty on PA/CA on team. I hear that some other states has trouble getting volunteers so probably problem does arises from there.

2. PA and CA are not properly trained or not aware of their rights. After the counting completed and CA of all candidates satisfied, they are asked to sign a form called BORANG 14. Each CA are supposed to be given a copy of the BORANG 14. This form is the proof of the total figure of the ballot counted for the stream. CA are supposed to request for a copy of the form and stand up and protest for it should the KTM refused to do so. Without the Borang 14, results can be altered and nobody can prove it.

Contrary to popular belief, there were no recounting votes at the tallying center. All counting and recount are done at the polling stations and results are recorded on the Borang 14.

CA are also supposed to be present to witness the resealing of the votes in their respective envelopes after counting and sign on them. Many CA were not aware of this as well.

Why then the unofficial results differ so much from the official ones? In my humble opinion - rumors. In the height of ones emotional excitement, any rumors that favors them are taken as official tally. Some streams do take longer time to count the votes. Disputes over procedures between an inexperienced KTM (hey, they only do this once every 5 years!) and CA could further lengthen the counting process.

So what can we do? In the next GE, everyone should volunteer to be a Polling Agent or Counting Agent. Get yourself trained. Read up the SPR procedures. Aware of your rights. This way we could minimize future election fraud.

I also would like to highlight that the KTM and the SPR team at my stream is extremely cooperative and professional at all times. It was a pleasant experience working with them. Being a PACA opened my eyes to many facets of the election process that the general public does not know of.

Life have busy and blogging has taken a back seat. I always wanted to update but somehow there is no motivation to it.

Thanks readers for liking my heritage series. I noted your comments and hopefully I can write something about the place we all love...

The best seafood dinner in my life.

The statement above is no exaggeration. I have been told that Sandakan food is the 'Penang' of East Malaysia and I find that the claim was true.

Our host was kind enough to drive us to Sandakan, a 1.5 hours drive from Telupid - just to treat us a good seafood dinner. He brought us to Ocean King Seafood Restaurant.

Ocean King Seafood Restaurant
 In order to go to the dining area at the back, one has to navigate through the side of the restaurant

Sea view dining area.
What makes Sandakan seafood so special? It's they way they prepare and cook the dish. While we can still get fresh seafood in W. Malaysia, the dishes here taste VERY VERY GOOD. EVERY SINGLE ONE of them.
Fresh prawns with some special sauce.

Boiled shellfish.

My first time tasting shellfish this good.
We ordered prawns, fish, shellfish, squids, sweet sour crabs, everything is good. The taste is so good I am bringing my parents here for holiday next year!

Sweet and sour crabs. Not too sweet, not too sour. Just nice.
And the total bill is about RM240 for the six of us. A very reasonably priced but spectacular meal for the six of us. Ocean King I will come back again!

Sabah Rains

"When it rains there are no mercy!", a Sabahan said when the shack they built almost flew off entirely by the thunderstorm.

Telupid Hospitality

This is what I had lunch today. Telupid church has been very kind to us.
