Hulu Selangor (P.94) by-election

Good to hear that BN is giving chance to first timer contestant and fresh face to election, P. Kamalanathan (MIC information chief).

Good also to hear PKR is fielding Zaid Ibrahim, a former minister in Malaysian government (also previously Kota Bahru MP 2004-8).

Good luck to independent candidates: Johan Mohd Diah and  V.S. Chandran.

It is very interesting to hear both sides of Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat extolling what they think is good and wanted by people of Hulu Selangor.

Dear Hulu Selangorians, are all these representative proclamations made on your behalf good enough to represent what you, the Hulu Selangorians really want?

Would you be easily swayed by people who belittle you on your choice or decision to support a particular candidate?

Would you succumb to wishes of people who feed you rumours, unsubstantiated stories or scandals unrelated to your pursuit of happyness or daily existence as an everyday constituent of Hulu Selangor?

Remember, your decision and who you elect to represent your voice in Parliament as Hulu Selangor MP on the 25 April 2010 is your right to bear.

The sad, sad KPI problem of NST…

Ouch… NST needs to send its reporters + editors to deep refresher course.

Me a layman also can see no way Malaysia can have such a heart attack drop of 65.3% in tourist arrival for the first 3 months of 2010. Read its edition of 9 April, 2010 (page 2) “Malaysia among cheapest countries to visit” for some fantastic fancies

Aiyoyo…. use your commons sense lar you NST journo guys and gals…

How can Malaysians trust le mainstream newspapers if NST blindly commits silly a blunder like this against its hardworking New Economic Model 1Malaysia government? <cough, cough, ahem…>

Not one, but two factual errors in one news report! hmmmm…. makes one wonder if the newspaper has something against the one helming the second highest national income earning ministry contributing to Malaysia’s national income.

My hands are itching to give a nice present for readers who can spot the other mistake in the NST report.

My dear minister of communication and culture, Mr Rais Yatim, please could you memantau your one of your oldest mainstream newspaper to do its job properly ie simple fact check with source?

We don’t want the trustworthy cyber news to completely dominate the Malaysian information sphere now, do we, sir?
