The official voter turnout was 81.1 percent, or 47,410 out of 58,459 registered voters – which was much higher than what the EC had stated earlier. There were 599 spoilt votes.

Meanwhile, outside Tuanku Bainun Teaching Institute, thousands of jubilant PKR supporters have gathered to embrace their leader’s return to Parliament.

PKR vice-president Azmin Ali is already there to address the crowd numbering some 6,000. Other party leaders like R Sivarasa and Tian Chua are also there.

Anwar is expected to address this ecstatic group of supporters later as well. Tian said that the overwhelming victory showed that “the prime minister’s racial politics is bankrupt”.

The EC made the official announcement at 10.05pm. Only Anwar and Hanafi were present at the announcement.

According to EC secretary Kamaruzaman, 38,144 voters went to the ballot box today with turnout being 65.25 percent. This is much lower than the 82 percent turnout at the March 8 general elections

6.30pm: Thousands of supporters, almost all from PKR, have gathered at the main counting centre. A police helicopter was hovering above the centre. Numerous police roadblocks were also mounted along the roads leading to the centre – this despite the police blocking the main access to this place.

About 30 police and FRU trucks were also seen in the vicinity, along with hundreds of police personnel

2.35pm: PKR vice-president Azmin Ali wants all party supporters to use motorcycles to go to the polling centres due to the massive traffic jams in all roads leading to these centres.

“From the indications we are getting, we are very confident of Anwar’s lead,” he said.

But he said that traffic gridlock on the narrow roads of the largely rural electorate had disrupted exit polling aimed at determining how voters cast their ballots.

“It is so bad that it’s very hard for us to determine accurate exit polls due to the large number of people filling the polling centres and the long jams outside,” he told AFP.

2.30pm: A worried-sounding BN candidate Arif Shah urged voters to come out to vote.

2.20pm: Malaysians for Free and Fair Election (Mafrel) spokesperson Ong BK said the election watchdog has recorded three cases of voters’ names missing from the electoral roll this morning.

He said these complainants have all voted in the previous elections but could not find their names on the roll today. In one case, the complainant found his name missing despite his wife being allowed to vote.

“We don’t know whether this is going to be a pattern as we have to continue to monitor the process until polling is closed” he told Malaysiakini.

1.27pm: The rain has stopped in certain areas, the traffic situation has improved in some parts and voters seem to be taking their time off for lunch first.

1.15pm: All roads leading to voting centres are going nowhere! Traffic has come to a standstill in most parts of Permatang Pauh.

9.10am: A PKR alert states that the voters’ list used in the SK Seberang Jaya 2 polling district is different from that given earlier. It is however learnt that only the page numbers are different, but with the same list of voters.

The contest to be the elected MP is among PKR leader Anwar Ibrahim, Barisan Nasional’s Arif Shah Omar Shah and little known Hanafi Hamat from Angkatan Keadilan Insan Malaysia (Akim).

This has been Anwar’s fort since 1982 and in his absence in the past 10 years, the seat has been held for him by his wife and PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

The by-election is necessitated by Wan Azizah’s decision to vacate the seat in July 31, to allow her husband a way back into the Parliament.

Permatang Pauh has three state seats under it – the BN-held Seberang Jaya, PKR’s Penanti and PAS’ Permatang Pasir. Arif is also the state representative in Seberang Jaya.

There are 25 polling centres, with 110 polling stream – all opened for voting since 8am. They will remain open until 5pm.

The weather in Permatang Pauh is clear and sunny. However, rain is expected later in the day. Voters are being reminded to be ready with their umbrellas and raincoats.

It has been constantly raining in the evenings in this constituency for the past week.

Heavy traffic is also anticipated throughout the day, especially with the narrow, kampung roads that dot most part of the constituency.

The police have also closed some roads in the constituency for better traffic management.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi reminded voters at his ceramah last night to come out early to vote.

PKR’s Anwar Ibrahim is expected to cast his vote at Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sri Penanti at about 9am while his rival Arif Shah Omar Shah from BN will be voting at SK Seberang Jaya 2.

The third candidate, Hanafi, is not a voter from here.

Some 400 voters had been waiting at SK Seri Menanti, one of the  key polling stations, since early morning to cast their ballots.

Both PKR and BN have also identified several measures to lure voters to come out to vote today. Both sides have placed volunteers to ferry voters to the polling centres. Umbrellas are also on stand-by for the voters in case of a sudden downpour.

Arif Shah’s Umno has deployed some 5,000 volunteers to help out in the by-election. Both Umno and PKR are also preparing food for the voters.

The rival parties have also set up their own websites for their supporters to monitor the situation today.

BN’s website can be accessed here while PKR’s site is located here.

  6. Din,

    Fantastic effort!

    Sekarang boleh pergi balik TIDUR!

    Tak dak mimpi ! Sumpah! Mesti tidur nyenyak!

    Wake up tomorrow for MORE work!!! 😀
    I will leave the sleeping to Badawi alHadhari alKepalabotolsi.

    Our work for the country is about to begin in earnest. We need help from all Malaysians as we can longer be indifferent to abuse of power and wastage of scarce resources. I saw that in Permatang Pauh campaign the UMNO government used state assets—the Police, Special Branch, Military Intelligence, the FRU, the Elections Commission, the Religious Department, and the Badan Pencegah Rasuah against us and the local people—and the tv and newspapers to wage a campaign to character assassinate Anwar Ibrahim.

    First priority for Anwar once he forms the People’s Government (Kerajaan Rakyat)—and he knows it—is to revive the economy and then for the long haul undertake reforms to restore public trust and confidence in government. It is Kerajaan Rakyat. —Din Merican

    P.S. Thanks to you and my other friends on this blog for your moral support and thanks also for your donations to the Anwar Ibrahim campaign. We must now perform.

  7. I can’t say anything else but thanks for the excellent job done, Din. It must have tiring man. It’s rest time now. Let’s look forward to the next chapter in life.

    At last, Merdeka day has some meaning. Good nite.

  8. As I have said before, the winner of this epic by-election, undoubtedly Anwar, has earned his right to legitimately claim that the ENTIRE nation has accepted him to lead this country.

  9. Congratulations Saudara Anwar. May Allah bless you and family and guide you in becoming the fair and just PM that you promised all Malaysians.

    To KJ eat the shit that came out of your mouth and your rear end. Even not knowing you I still don’t like you unlike your Dad Dato Jamaluddin.

    Cause for celebration Mr Bean, Jong, Din Ahmad, Salak and not forgetting DJ Din. Lets hear “Celebrate Good Times come on” 10-4

  10. Dear Mr Merican,

    Congratulations on a fantastic job. My only regret was I never got to meet you through circumstances of my own making. Maybe some other day in the not too distant future.

    If I may be allowed, I would like to reproduce what I posted in my blog on tonight’s huge victory.
    Before the excitement of today abates and we all go to bed dreaming of a better tomorrow, there are a few things I have to get off my chest which I would like to share with my readers.

    First and foremost, hearty congratulations to Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for showing resilience when faced with such overwhelming adversities. Enjoy your win tonight with your family and supporters but please remember the real work begins now and when you are sworn into Parliament. Do whatever you have to do to bring justice and freedom to ALL within this country but never forget that you are where you because of the trust we all placed in you. Forget this and you will experience the same ‘down to earth’ reminder meted out to the BN.

    Next, my most heartfelt gratefulness to the voters of Permatang Pauh. You did not let your brothers and sisters down. In fact, you have made us proud and have to be congratulated for braving all the adversities thrown against you together with the inclement weather and still managed to discharge your responsibilities, all 81% of you. For this, words of thanks cannot even express our indebtedness to you all.

    Finally to all the rest, whether you actively participated or only through the blogs or even through silent prayers, a very humble thank you to you all.

    It is early stages yet but at least it reinstates our faith of the fair-mindedness of the ordinary Malaysian, who only aspire for the ‘middle ground’.

    Our beloved country may have hope yet!

  11. Good job Anwar.

    Mahatir ,Najib & Rosmah ,Patail & Musa I wish all of u to hv a nightmare from tonight onwards.I see yours day r getting very close to the graveyard.

    Musnah Ketuanan Melayu
    Bangsa Padu Malaysia Maju
    Hidup Anwar Ibrahim
    Muncul Malaysia Baru
    Hancur Barisan Nasional
    Wujud Ketuanan Rakyat

  12. Congratulations is due to the entire PR team and their efforts to bring about this success. Kudos to you, bro and the entire army of bloggers who have fought a great cyber battle against the might of the BN machinery and their enslaved tems comprising all the TV and Radio stations, press and government apparatus.
    A very emphatic syabas to DSAI on his success in Permatang Pauh. We look forward to your gracing the hallowed halls of Parliament House and very soon your leadership on the march to Putra Jaya.
    Bro, I will be out of town for a few days but we certainly must celebrate this great day when I return with a meal of Char Koay Teow at your favourite kopitiam.
    Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka!

  13. Dear Abang Din,
    Thank you for the excelent efforts and our congratulations to PKR. Looking forward to the next phase with hope.
    You deserve a good rest.


  14. Congratulations DS Anwar Ibrahim and all those at PKR/Pakatan Rakyat for a job well done!

    Thank you Din Merican for your fantastic work on this blog receiving close to 800,000 hits already!

    Celebration it is, Shrek!
    Let Kool and the Gang play on!

  15. What surprises me is that there are still 15,000 Permatang Pauh voters that still believe in BN. Don’t these people understand the damage done by BN and what the future holds if BN continue in power? Can’t these people see the atrocities, the injustices, the corruption, abuse of power and all that crap? When will these people open their eyes to the truth? Kesian kat depa. 10-4

  16. My crystal ball tells me that Din Merican is Malaysia’s next Permanent Representative to the United Nations, and will have a Manhattan address to call home. He’ll spend two years here and move to France as Malaysia’s ambassador where he can once again walk along Paris’s Champs Elysées.

    Don’t forget to give me and Shrek a call as soon as you arrive in New York. We will have that long overdue scotch and soda or that martini – shaken but not stirred. Don’t forget to apply a diplomatic passport for Jong who will be your private secretary. There’s nothing she wouldn’t do for king and country. Shrek experienced in the martial art of silat goyang will be your bodyguard and chauffeur. He’ll act as your pointman when in San Francisco, the gay capital of the world. As for Salak being a Sarawakian with proven headhunting skills, he can act as backup for Shrek.

    Me? I’m happy just carrying your bag:)

  17. Congrats on the win. But our road is only now beginning.

    Thanks so much for the groundwork Din.
    Su, I had only a small role to play. Credit must go to our chief strategist Anwar Ibrahim himself who personally dealt with his campaign with such unprecedented skill, aided by Azmin Ali, Johari Abdul, Saifuddin Nasution, Penang PKR Laison Dato Zahrain Mohamed Hashim and his close associates Malik Kassim and Dr. Mansor Othman dan Pak Mus, Dato Sallehuddin Hashim and others.

    Both PAS and DAP leaders and their advisors had a big hand in this victory. Chief Minister of Penang Lim Guan Eng made a strategic decision to declare a public holiday on August 26 and that threw the UMNO-BN campaign team in a state of utter confusion.

    Thousands of people in Permatang Pauh and from various parts of our country helped the cause. The bloggers led by its Doyen Raja Petra and assisted by Sam Haris Ibrahim were very effective in our psywar. Petra and Haris moved so fast that I had great difficulty to satisfy them with my handphone reports from various locations.

    But Anwar Ibrahim was just spectacular as a campaigner whose killer power was his ability to communicate and bond with people. Ceramahs drew thousands who braved the night and occasional bad weather to hear him.—Din Merican

  18. pak din..tahniah untuk dsai dan pkr..alhamdulillah Allah telah beri kemenangan. semoga Allah terus beri kekuatan untuk kemenangan yang lebih besar.

  19. Din, Thanks for your website. Congratulations to DSAI & his family. Congratulations to U, Din, & all the bloggers for their great faith in Pakatan. Let’s now take a good rest. The battle is won; we have yet to win the war.

    DSAI pls tread carefully, the BN clan is still all out to ponce. Let’s not give them the chance. LET’S HAVE THE NEW GOVT. IN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. allah BLESS US ALL.

    Hope to read some “LAT’S SPECIAL SOON SOMEDAY”!!!!!!

  20. What’s BN’s next move? Maybe the budget session might be postponed. PakLah might now decide to call it quits. Pass the baton to the LIAR, Murderer & HINDU & to take the blame for the demise of “Ketuanan Melayu”, race & religious politics.

    Really waiting & looking forward to what they are going to do.


  21. Mr Bean

    Silat Goyang? Must be taught by Mahaguru Inul. Shrek only too happy to be driver and guide to Badawi, Najis, Al-blah, Musang anak Hassang, Petal et all to visit Alcatraz (satu lagi projek kerajaan BN) and thereafter given real one on one experience on sodomy. Plenty of KJ oops KY Jelly. Anyway in spanish Y and J sounds the same. 10-4

  22. Congratulations to Anwar, PKR and Bangsa Malaysia supporters including you Din, RPK and company. Thank you so much for making this happen. You have overcome the odds of bribery, busloads of phantom voters, so called dead man trying to vote with names deleted.

    All of you worked very hard to make this change come true and we look forward to a better corruption free, democratic country where there is equality, justice and rule of law for all. Reformasi, Reformasi, Reformasi. Time to start cleaning house. Get rid of those vermins.

  23. Permatang voters spoke for all Malaysians, they represented our hopes and aspirations.
    They voted on our behalf.

    On March 8, 51% of the voters in the Peninsular rejected BN.

    Now the figure is a whopping 66%.
    Which translate onto 2 out of 3 Malaysians rejecting BN – UMNO, MCA, MIC, Gerakan , Abdullah, Najib and the Cabinet.
    If they still cannot get this message, then they deserve to be condemned.

  24. To the people of PERMATANG PAUH must go a big TERIMA KASIH. You have done the country proud. UMNO came to bury Anwar. Instead you good people have given them a well deserved kick in the teeth – and a blow that is perhaps even bigger than that BN was given in March.

  25. Congrats DSAI & the team. Pls don’t let people down… there are high hopes for better Msia out there, including me – not so much for me but my children… jgn main-main OK..?

  26. A smear campaign the likes of which we have not seen before was mounted for this election – in which even the sanctity of our Holy Quran was violated. But the citizens of Permatang Pauh saw through this and have given the country a wonderful present. In hindsight this may well turn out to be an even bigger victory than the March election thunderbolt.

    A special thank you to the Bloggers.

  29. SANTAI – August 27, 2008

    Bagi saya kes siaful or Anwar, Najib atau Haji Hadi adalah lebih kepada individual tak penting yang telah mengheret dan mengaleh tumpuan daripada agenda pembangunan insan negara, terutama kaum bumiputra Melayu.

    Saya tidak melihat kepada sudut perkauman yang sempit, tetapi kerisauan saya kepada kedudukan orang Melayu daripada jangka panjang. Ini berdasarkan kepada fakta sejarah, ekonomi dan pendidikan (e.g pencepaian CGPA > 3.00).

    Tahukah tuan-tuan bahawa (FAKTA yang kita semua tahu)

    Pemilikan ekuiti orang Melayu hanya sekadar 18.90 %, itupun menerusi syarikat kerajaan (Tabung Haji, ASB). Kalau nak kira individu sekadar 3% (Exam dapat F+++). Yang ekonomi 3% ini depa dok berdengki.

    Pemilikan Kaum CINA adalah melebihi 90% tanpa perlu kerajaan (BN atau Pakatan bantu). Ada pembangunan Pekan dan taman – wujudlah perbandaran yang dikuasai oleh Kaum Cina.

    Orang Melayu rata-rata hanya mampu tinggal di Rumah kos rendah. Yang berada sikit (kakitangan kerajaan) bolehlah beli itupun harga setakat 150 ribu ke bawah.

    Di Kelantan mana ada projek perumahan. tak ada pembeli (lagipun tanah banyak). Harap dekat Kubang Kerian, USM- adalah Melayu Makan gaji.

    Shah Alam dan Bangi adalah contoh Bandar yang dibangun bagi mengimbangi bandar dominasi Cina seperti Kepong dan Jinjang.

    Contoh Ketara ialah NILAI, Ia adalah bandar yang dibina dengan kekuatan ekonomi masyarakat Cina yang kerja.

    Perkara pokoknya Kekuatan ekonomi kaum CINA semakin menguasi POLITIK MELAYU.

    Orang Melayu terlalu banyak berpolitik (tak kira UMNO, Melayu PKR atau PAS). Hasil tak ada dan bersengketa sesama sendiri tak tahu ujung pangkal. Orang lain mengintai peluang.

    Di Universiti saya sebagai Pensyarah ( cuba lihat statistik terutama 3 uni terbesar USM, UKM, UM dan UPM yang menjadi pilihan pelajar non -bumi) majoriti enrolmen BUKAN BUMIPUTRA > 60%.

    Tahun ini sahaja pemgambilan pelajar KEJURUTERAAN MEKANIK, di USM 90% adalah terdiri daripada BUKAN Bumiputra. W/pun Pensyarahnya adalah 80% BUMI . Yang bumiputera kebanyakan wanita. Yang lelaki banyak enjoy (style Melayu).

    Setiap tahun ada Anugerah Sijil Dekan (CGPA > 3.5) . Sebuah Pusat Pengajian/Fakulti di USM >90% penerima adalah Bukan BUMI especially CINA. Saya waktu anugerah dibuat lari jauh-jauh, malu nak letak muka kat mana setiap tahun, asyik-asyik pangil cong, lin ang, …. adalah kot sorang dua itu pun pompuan.

    Orang Cina tahu kekuatan mereka daripada segi ekonomi, pendidikan dan mereka mahu sekarang adalah percaturan kuasa Politik yang buat masa menyebelahi BUMIPUTERA.(MELAYU). Kekuatan ekonomi mereka setaip tahun meningkat – kuasa ekonomi digunakan untuk meraih Kuasa Politik, terutama melalui DAP.

    Samada dalam PAS, UMNO dan PKR jangan mudah selesa dengan kedudukan politik anda. PAS dengan islamnya tanpa disedari diguna oleh Kaum Cina untuk mencapai cita-citanya menguasai peluang perniagaan dan harta tanah.

    Urusan agama Baudha bukan masalah antara UMNO dan PAS, PAS UMNO bercakaran orang Cina (Otak CGPA > 3.0) sedikit demi sedikit demi sikit dapat meraih kelebihan dan keuntungan.
    Sembahyang dua iman bukan maslah orang CINA. Adakah wahabi dan Syiah kurang islam. Bagi mereka kedua-dua mengaku islam.

    Kebanyakan pelajar-pelar non-bumi memandang Sinis kepada orang Melayu (Pensyarah Melayu).

    Orang Melayu tidak tahu apa yang diperkata bukan Melayu. kerana halangan Bahasa (Cuba belajar bahasa Cina dan duduk dikedai kopi mereka – dengar-dengar apa mereka kata – Melayu.. biarlah dio orang gaduh… kita gelak sudahlah, mahu Agong (RM) ok sudah.

    Orang Melayu setakat jaguh sesama Melayu.

    Orang Melayu mudah dibeli terutama dengan wang dan pujian. Orang Cina dengan diplomasinya.

    Rata-rata orang Melayu kehendaknya banyak bergantung kpd ekonomi kaum Cina (terutama di pantai Barat). Nak beli tayar, repair aircond pun orang Cina . Mana Melayu PAS dan UMNO (nasib baiklah Melayu komboja buka kedai kain).

    Jangan lupa orang Melayu masih hidup bergantung dengan percaturan kuasa kerajaan yang sekarang semakin luntur jika kerajaan yang baru (PKR contoh sahaja) membentuk kerajaan — terlampau baik dengan bukan bumi habis lah .. tak percaya tengok

    Lihatlah fakta-fakta – kebanyakan syarikat-syarikat korperat Cina (CEOnya adalah lebih 70%), Melayu hanya diambil jadi kerani, jaga, dispatch Boy.). Pakai tudung lagi tak pandang. Orang Melayu sahaja terhegeh-hegeh ….. nak cari makan.

    Orang Cina ada yang susah (umumnya lebih senang daripada Melayu)

    Melayu pertengahan (Malay middle class) saya lihat sekarang udah selesa dengan apa mereka ada.

    Saya sebagai Pensyarah pernah ke INTEL Penang rasa kerdil sahaja. Berapa kerat orang Melayu kerja (CGPA 3.0 keatas).

    Adapun tak tahan cara kerja- cabut lari. Melayukan suka kerja yang kurang presure dan masa.

    Mereka (umumnya) dapat membeli bukan saja rumah serta harta di Malaysia. Tengok Cina singapore …… TEMASEK Holding berupaya membeli Johor kalau mahu.

    Jawatan penting kerajaan depa tak bagi orang Melayu pegang.

    Perhatian yang diberikan kepada Bumiputera bukan perkauman .. memberi lebih fokus kepada mereka yang memerlukan… Orang Melayu rata-rata otaknya CGPA < 2.2.

    Orang Cina lebih puji mat Bengala dan myanmar bekerja (bagi gaji RM 1000.00 — . Melayu kerja nak sikit, duit nak banyak.(kilang bagipun RM600-700.

    Cina buka kedai internet melayu beduyun pi lepak-lepak dengan kedai komputer (kononya bermain dengan teknologi !!!). Kedai Melayu buka depa kata tak kelas. Eloklah Melayu tak sokong Melayu. Maka jadilah Melayu tak percaya melayu dalam apa bidangpun.

    Saya harap orang Melayu bijak berpolitik jangan nak ambil hati orang lain (orang tu belum pasti baik dengan kita – yahudi (singapore -penasihat adalah yahudi). Belum dapat OKlah terlambat.

    Jangan terlampau syiok atau terpesong disebabkan dunia cyber, blog, liberal …(ciptaan orang putih melayu pakai saja teknologi).

    ORANG PAS JANGANLAH DEPA KATA LEBIH ISLAM .. betui semua … ingat islam dah pecah kepada 99 golongan.

    Pi indonesia lagi sakan.Kawan saya KRISTIAN tetapi isterinya ISLAM …. LIBRAL sungguh

    Kita sesama Melayu Islam janganlah sampai berpecah belah kerana kata aku lebih islam hang kurang islam … Tuhan dah tentu dosa pahala.. las-las sekali abukpun tarak. i surau yang dok memakmurkan orang tua-tua .. Mana Melayu islam UMNO dan PAS.

    Kita Melayu ni kian terpinggir……. secara evolusi dan tak sedar. Tak dapat dinafikan.


    INDIA – kaum India

    Orang Melayu nak pi mana ….

    Mana ada orang Cina kerja dengan MPSP atau MBK, DBKL, Kota setar angkat sampah yang ramai Melayu dan India (semakin kurang). kalau jadi polis depa mahu jadi sekurang-kurangnya Inspektor.

    SEDARLAH MELAYU — Jgn syiok sendiri

    Kerau sana, sumpah sana, fitnah itu ini apa dapat … Kaum cina mentertawa sahaja.

    Orang Melayu jarang nak support orang Melayu .. asyik pandang rendah sesama kaum … sifat iri hati payah nak buang.. Orang elayu buka kedai 3-4 bulan lepas tu tutup.. Meniaga hanya standard dekat pasar malam atau skim cepat kaya/MLM. (tengok berita harian banyak iklan peniagaan cepat kaya) .. ada orang cina nak masuk downline hampa … jamin tak adalah. sekok 2 tu mungkin ada.

    Kaum Cina maaf jika terasa.. itu adalah realiti.
    Saya hanya mencerita nasib orang Melayu dewasa ini untuk direnung.

    SANTAI – siri muhasabah diri

  30. Where is umno now. must b rotten very badly.that’s why short form for umno is ” ulat makan najib’s otak”.

  31. SANTAI

    Dengan sendiri anda menjawap semua soalan tentang kelemahan orang Melayu. Maaf tak semua Melayu CGPA 3.0. Ada Melayu CGPA 4.0 dan dapat Summa Cum Laude dari University ternama didunia, malangnya tak diterima oleh kaum Melayu sendiri. Ornag puteh dipanggil Tuan tapi orang Melayu yang leneg berkelayakan dipanggil Encik

    Dah 50 tahun diberi segala kemudahan tapi tak puas puas lagi. Tige generasi tapi maseh bergantung atas bantuan kerajaan. Sampai bila agaknya? Orang Melayu tak berjaya dinegeri sendiri akan tetapi mencatat kejayaan dinegara asing. Mungkin sebab dia minoriti dan terpaksa menentukan kejayaan.

    Tentang pembelian perumahan, saya perhatikan didepan rumah kereta menjalar, kadang kadang harga kereta lebeh mahal dari rumah. Sama juga dengan perabut, lebeh mahal dari rumah. Mengapa? Melayu suka joli dan menunjuk nunjuk Prioriti Melayu terpesong dan anak anak Melayu tak gemar bertanding dalam mata pelajaran. Lebeh syiok merempit dan lepak. Salah siapa kalau Melayu jadi pengemis dinegeri sendiri. 10-4
