... then flash, you find them on a boat in a Simla lake, before dancing with gaiety in the verdant tea plantations of Darjeeling. Oh, those songs - it's hard to ever imagine Indian movies without songs.
But alas, for Samy Vellu, he won’t be able to show off his 'Ketupat in Kashmir' - An MGR Extravaganza …
… because his MIC candidate has more or less lost the Bukit Selambau by-election.
Frankly, Samy Vellu should spare his party and the BN further embarassment and leave his party post NOW! Those poor BN people had been cringing at his unwanted presence during the pre-election campaign. He must understand he's no longer relevant or wanted.
Malaysiakini reported, at 7.52 pm in Bukit Selambau, unofficial results indicated that, with 15 polling stations counted, PKR is leading by a comfy majority of 1,294. Only 7 more polling stations remain to be counted.
But strangely (again, as reported by Malaysiakini), though PKR has done well in almost all the non-Malay areas, the sole exception seems to be the predominantly Indian area of Bukit Lembu, meaning the PKR candidate has enjoyed principally strong Chinese support.
I guess like in Kuala Terengganu, the DAP should (again) be thanked for its sterling work and contribution to a PR victory. The DAP has been pulling more than its share of its political weight without those grandoise but meaningless and usless 'big' announcements ;-)
Incidentally, should we thank those 300 former PPP people? Wakakaka!
Anyway, the most reliable indicator of Humpty Dumpy (of the Must-I-Come party) falling down, where all the King’s men couldn’t put his crown back together is ...
... the MIC operations centre in Sungai Petani totally deserted way way way before the final election result is announced, with all party supporters gone. Aiyoyo ;-)
My matey Ong Kian Ming has been spot on with his pre-poll prediction that in Bkt Selambau: PKR to win by 1,500-2,000 ...
... because Malaysiakini reported, at 8.50 pm (unoffically) PKR retains Bukit Selambau, where with only one more polling box to be counted, Manikumar is leading with a 2,092-vote majority.
And Nizar is still leading handsomely in Bukit Gantang. Will Ong's prediction for Malaysia's most fave PAS person to win Bukit Gantang by 3,000 come true too?
In fact yes, coz Malaysiakini has reported the unofficial result for Bukit Gantang (at 8.50 pm) as Nizar winning with a majority of 2,945 votes.
PAS obtained 20,021, while BN received 17,076.
Malaysiakini reported that Nizar Jamaluddin leaves the party’s operation centre in Air Kuning in an open hatch SUV, and waves to supporters as if he has just won the US presidential race.
Well done, Nizar, a future PM of Malaysia.
But more than for Nizar and what's his name ;-) in Bukit Selambau, I congratulate Ong Kian Ming for his amazingly accurate analyses.
