The challenges we face as the citizens of a new State Government

The real obnoxious 5xmom has a lot of things to say about the defeated (a nicer name than losers) but she will do the adult thing today and just say ‘I told you so….’. Bye-bye! Sayonara! Selamat ber-retire buat selama-lamanya.
(This is a screenshot from The Star. Mr. Editor of The Star must be sooooooo speechless. That’s why they only have one single line of words and yet, it is one of The Star most read article. *roll eyes* I was there last night and the foreign press mobbed Jeff Ooi and this is all we get from The Star.)
But she will rant on The Star. The game is over, sirs. Sing a different tune now, please. Dato’ Wong Chun Wai, I want to say ‘dai sei, padan’ and *farting sound from armpit*. Your articles in the previous weeks have left us in so much fear and anger instead of helping your big bosses. You are the liability. You said we (Christians) voted with our emotions. You are right indeed. Anger. Disappointment. Disillusionment. A lot of emotions. You are partially to be blamed. The mainstream media are liable too. And the losers are you. Not us. We can just buy another new paper or get our news elsewhere. It costs only one RM. It costs you millions.
Anyway…let’s not rub it in further for them. I look back at my old posts and I realised that though it was fun poking at them when they (yang bermaharajarela) slammed us in those days, it is now no fun anymore. Yesterday, as the results of Malaysia elections came up, I can almost cross out the long lists in my head. Another one bites the dust, another one and another one. Beruk, goblok, liars……. From here on, I hope I have less things to rant.
Back to the real situation now :
I was flipping through the papers and one sentence caught my eyes. And suddenly, I realised the gigantic task that lies on me, as a citizen.
Nik Aziz says :
“I want to thank everybody, all the races that worked together with PAS to bring in this victory. I appreciate your support.
“We will approach this victory from an Islamic point of view and this means everyone is equal.
“All are brothers and sisters.
There should be no more dividing people along racial lines,” he said.
We have been fed so much biased news on the mainstream media for too long. We get nothing but negative views. Now, we have to see everything in a new light. We have to have that faith in our new State Government. We need patience and time for them to blend in. They gave us a lot of promises and though I don’t expect them to deliver all, at least I hope they will do some of them.
There are plenty more. And yes, I hope their feet remain on the ground and they will remain the same individuals like they are when they go around their election campaigns. Because if they don’t, Penang people are famous for tiu-ing people out of their office.
Lastly, when I walked into church this morning, I walked in with a renewed hope. But Father Fabian said, “This (cast vote) is not the end of our task. It is just the beginning. It is up to us as individuals to do something to help the poor and marginalised.” Without us, the new State Government will not go far. How much are we, as individual willing to do to make Penang like the island we envisioned? That’s the challenge we have ahead of us.
By tomorrow, I am going to drag out the real and original 5xmom and get her to write her normal style. I am getting sick of my own posts already. I guess everyone is. But oso difficult wor. No more Mr. Blue jokes jor, I suddenly feel so lonely. HOHOHO.
