Live from Esplanade

I am here at the Esplanade with my Citizen Journalism course mates to cover the Malam Penerangan Setahun Pemerintahan Pakatan Rakyat. It is like ceramah nights all over again.


The politicians are all as fiery as before the general election. Right now MP Jeff Ooi is giving his report to us. One of the ADun said we are their bosses because their salaries, food and drinks are all paid by us rakyat.

We are going to interview Penangites on what they think of this one year under Pakatan Rakyat.

Fun being able to kepochee and call ourselves citizen journalism.

  8. Nice able to meet up with you… 🙂 Your camera damn sharp lah… Wonder how much ‘months of salary’ going to cost me if I’m to buy one like yours…
    The people is not that many… probably due to the early shower that clean the streets for a while. However, it’s good to hear those leaders being so humble, especially CM Lim who laid out his plan for Penang in the future. 🙂 Cheeerrssssss!
