It is my obligation to say thank you to these people featured in this post.I announced in a posting that my reason for coming to Kelantan. I made no formal appeal for volunteers. Datuk Zaid was the first to volunteer accommodation. As a perfect host he was all attention and when he had to leave for KL he appointed his people to give all the assistance we needed. That was invaluable. Thank you again Datuk.
This fellow Duke .....what more can I say. If you need anybody reliable to walk beside you he is the man. He drove us all the way up here. He stayed for the full duration. Passion for the cause drives this guy. Everynight after ceremahs in Manek Urai means driving back to KB at close to 1:00am. That is tiring doing it for five nights.....2 hours to and fro.
Arthur began the trip with us but duty to job which takes him overseas often, was of great help during the four days with us. Arthur did the Permatang Pauh by-elections with us. Communicating with this man is an intellectual treat.....especially when he speaks strategy and I-Ching. Thank you Art for your company. And thanks for filling up the gas.
Stephen Francis is a veteran of all by-elections. Everyone of his pics tells a story and good stories they are. You don't ask this man to do things for you. He volunteers as if by instinct. The above traits is very Stephen!
This is a blogger to watch. He is full-time at this. His forte is the pics he produces for his blog. Originally one of the Perak Bloggers, he might be making Kelantan his base of operation. Already he has been chosen by Datuk Husam to follow him together with sifu Sheih (Kickdefella) for visits to the oil-rigs. We connected during the Bukit Gantang by-elections and have bonded since. He was part of our team during the MU saga.
He was appointed our minder ..... making sure we were comfortable to do what we had to do. He accompanied us to MU for all the night ceremahs we covered. His contacts made it easy for us to move around in Manek Urai. His contacts got Duke and Stephen the bikes they needed to cover the 9 polling centres. When you are a stranger, Tuan Haji will always make you feel a part of his family. Terima Kasih Tuan Haji
