I caught the news that blogger, Jeff Ooi may be contesting for the Bukit Bendera, Penang seat in the Malaysia Election 2008. I live in the neighbourhood but too bad I don’t cast my vote here but in Sungai Nibong. But from a blogger to another, Jeff has my support.

Today, I got one of those spams. You know….supermarket flyers, tuition centres flyers, meals catering, kindies…cheap sales… plumbers fliers and etc stuffed into my mail box. One of them is the @BukitBendera.com newsletter. Sdr Chia Kwang Chye who is the Gerakan ADUN or KADUN (beh, I never care anyway) normally sent us the newsletter to tell us what are the exciting developments going on. Rite……

And as you know, I am a webmaster since 2003, having built websites with Yahoo Geocities, Microsoft Frontpage, Adobe Dreamweaver and even coding using basic html and now, owner of almost 50 sites. Blek, I just wanna boast, cannot ah?

So, I surfed over to BukitBendera.com.my and OMG!!! See the BukitBendera.com.my about page!

bukitbendera.com.my

Seriously lah….how hard is it to maintain a site? I do it for myself and my church. I have no IT background, no go skool and even I can make sure that a site is not left in this way. Kena hack jor lor. Pai seh lor.

Sdr. Chia, please lah, don’t label your team with Cyber everything if your webmaster cannot even get the URL working well. And mai cheow si lang (don’t make us laff to death) with this kind of page. Want us to join your cyber team? Cannot even get a form to work! And your Ingrish…adoi, sia suey leh.

My point is – Politicians have to take note. The last Malaysia General Elections and this one is a lot different now. You can trudge through wet markets and hawker centres to garner votes and impress them. But you cannot impress the upper income, urban voters like us in Penang who expect more.

P/S : Gimme 5 is MY trademark, wei.

So, are you ready for the 12th Malaysia General Election yet?
