Goodbye David H!

If all goes well next week, Kristy Lee Cook will be the next to go. One week down, eleven to go.

Shall I be daring and obnoxious and list my desired order of elimination, based on exactly how I want it to go?

Week 2: Kristy Lee
Week 3: Amanda Overmeyer
Week 4: Syesha
Week 5: Chikezie
Week 6: Ramiele
Week 7: Jason Castro
Week 8: David Cook
Week 9: David Archuleta
Week 10: Brooke White
Week 11: Michael Johns Winner: Carly Smithson

It's unlikely Carly will win. If a girl wins, it will be Brooke. If a boy wins, it's between David A and Michael, though David Cook has a good chance, even though I wish it were not so!

Lovey, C

If you want to have a better future for our children in Malaysia, do your part by signing the on-line petition at

This is one of the way (non-violence) to bring our message to the Government. Don’t just sit there, stand up and be counted!

Why do we need to reform the Election Commission?

1) Gerrymandering. The discrepancy between number of voters in voting areas is too great. The smallest parliamentary seat (Federal Territory, Putrajaya) has only 6,608 voters while the parliamentary seat for Kapar in Selangor has 112,224 voters. What this means is that one vote in the Putrajaya parliamentary constituency is equivalent to 17 votes in the Kapar constituency.

2) Phantom voters. A common tactic is to ‘buy’ the identity card of the voters. Party members from the ruling parties will then vote on the voters’ behalf. Random checking of a person’s identity must be conducted using those finger print checking device (like the bank use). Any voting done on another person’s identity must be made a serious offence under the election law.

3) Postal votes. The rules on postal voting must be reviewed, tightened and amended. The current rule favours the ruling party as the armed forces personnel and policemen who vote by ‘postal voting’ would obviously not jeopardize their career or promotion prospect by voting for the opposition. Voting under postal voting is not secret as it is under the watchful eyes of the senior officers.

4) Spoiled votes. How do we define spoiled votes. It is very easy to turn good votes into spoiled votes (by adding one more x to the ballot paper). Are spoiled votes being verified and watched over by the party representatives? In marginal areas in which the winning margin is razor thin, the so-called spoiled votes need to be scrutinized.
