As early as 6:40am the breakfast joints were already filling up except for the popular Sulaiman Roti Canai which did not open its doors yet. At 7:15am we made our way to the Masjid Al-Juhar. DAP’s Tan Seng Giaw was having an animated talk with YB Khalid Samad and we had Selangor Menteri Besar YB Khalid Ibrahim walk up towards the mosque. The morning prayers were underway and the Unit Amal, now called Unit Keselamatan and the other units from all other states were getting into formation to start the march towards the Nomination Centre.

It was a sea of endless PAS flags that took to the streets. From the rear, YBs William Leong and Tian Chua leading a team of PKR supporters joined the march.

As has always been the case since the first by-election at Permatang Pauh, PR people smothered BN in numbers. That was always a good omen. Malaysiakini says that BN had about 2k against PR’s 10k whilst Knights Templar whom I always consult on numbers volunteered BN 3.8K and PAS 7.5k.

By 12noon everyone moved out and the campaign immediately started – straight fight that is.

We traveled back to Datuk Zaid’s residence for nasi bungkus and the rave of the season – durian kunyit…..that about got us in the mood to file this report……catch some shut-eye before we set off at 6:30pm for a ceremah at which our host, Datuk Zaid will speak.

Cheers then everyone from the BRB in Kota Baru.

KUALA KRAI: The Education Ministry is providing free school uniforms and bags to 6,142 primary, secondary and religious school students in Manek Urai.

Kelantan Umno liaison chief Datuk Mustapa Mohamed said he was informed of the aid allocation for the students by Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin several days ago.

“This gesture by the ministry is to lighten the burden of the people here,” he told a news conference at the Manek Urai Barisan Nasional operations centre yesterday.

While 300 students received the free school uniforms and bags yesterday, Mustapa said the rest would be handed out in stages.

He had earlier presented the uniforms and bags to the pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan Manek Urai Baru on behalf of Muhyiddin.

There are 10 primary and 12 secondary schools as well as an Arabic-medium school in the town.

Dear Zorro

Do you think a protest vote or a vote for UMNO will have a better wake up call for PAS youth?

We need PAS to be a Partner of PR, not just someone who is a fence sitter waiting for some bait..

I was a permanent resident of HUKM last week because my mother in law has a mild stroke..

Looks more like a festival of some sort rather than a buy-election !
Wishing you all the best and may the moon shines ever so brightly by ushering in more pro-Malaysians type of politicians rather than those overzealous ones.
