Barisan Nasional wins simple and denied 2/3 majority

After knocking off last night, the first thing when I woke up this morning is to grab The Star Newspaper to see the results. Among the headlines are:

Barisan reels from worst-ever election performance
Barisan lost Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor, PAS strengthened grip on Kelantan
MIC in shambles with no leader in the wings

Barisan can form the next government
Sombre mood at Umno headquarters
Blogger Jeff Ooi headed for Parliament

One article that had me in thoughts.. it was an interview with Pak Lah.


"On the implications to the Barisan of the losses by component parties, Abdullah said the losses had to be accepted.

Dah kalah, kalahlah (If it’s a loss, it’s a loss),” he replied. "

I let out a "Huh??? What???"
I prefer to hear something roaring back positively.

We'll see in the next 4 years what Malaysia can achieve and will become.. Politics will just never be the same again for Malaysians.

Malaysia's 12th General Election Fever

I was caught by surprise to learn that the Opposition has taken over Penang, Kedah and Kelantan..
I think this election has many ups and downs and disappointments and victories. It's much more 'excited' as far as I can remember...

And much to my own surprises, I kept pressing F5 on the malaysiakini website to get the latest news... and the latest news now is that "Guan Eng to be Penang CM".

It's about my sleeping time, but still I'm excited to know on the rest of the results. Will continue with F5... but most important of all, all I wanted is a democratic, fair, beautiful and peaceful Malaysia.
