This is a candid look at the recently concluded 13TH General Election 2013.

Quite a lot of UPGRADING in the campaign styles of both Barisan and Pakatan political coalition parties.
Rather a good show indicating Malaysia's progress from a Middle Income nation and the current push to a Upper Income nation by year 2020.

Both Coalition showed QUALITY in their PRESENTATION, created big range of CAMPAIGN MATERIALS, some offered WELL GROOMED CANDIDATES, and provided AUDIO VISUAL materials. There were a MIX of methods, from FUND RAISING DINNERS, SUPPORT DINNERS, to PUBLIC MEGA RALLIES, up to smaller DIALOQUE SESSION for the INFLUENTIAL THINKING middle class Malaysians.

A good show overall.

cheerios!

.......pretty cool, don't you think!

It's actually cheaper when you are on a tight schedule especially during the 15 days campaign period in the 13th general election.

<this post is neutral, does not contain any political message and is meant as a CANDID look on the Malaysian Scene and it's ever improving situation>

Every country has a past it has to live with and progress from.  The western approach of judging or pre-judging every country according to current western standards is actually very naive and fraught with racial or religious biases.  The important thing is that Malaysia is going in the right direction.  Opposition is maturing too, as is the governing party.  Important thing is to make sure natiaonal sovereignty is not sacrificed for the form of government.  Losing sovereignty while changing the form of government is like throwing away the baby with the bath water, and only a foreign cirtic would advise such absurd solutions, but they are recommending such changes everywhere, because these babies (sovereign countries) are not theirs to lose.  That is the big difference between a mother and a kibitzer.
