No major upheavals a blessing, they say.


Singaporeans from different walks of life have expressed relief that the volatile general election in Malaysia on May 5 is finally over.

They say they are glad that there hasn’t been any major upheavals in the closely watched political battle between the incumbent Barisan Nasional and opposition factions.

One Singaporean man, Hua Tua Chia, said: “Heng petrol prices have remained stable.”

Others say volatility stemming from political instability has widespread ramifications for a country.

Niu Nai Fen, a Singaporean woman with two kids said: “Lucky milk powder and diapers prices in Johor Bahru still the same. This weekend can go again.”

However, some say they will remain cautious when they cross the Causeway.

Wuo Pa Hei, a Johor Bahru enthusiast, said: “I now scared I go restaurant then got blackout. After that realised the table got served extra plate of crab or fish even when I never order it and then must pay.”

Thank god we separated from them in 1965.

Semi-professional election watchers in Singapore spent the whole Sunday night and the wee hours of Monday morning glued to “live” updates of Malaysia’s GE13 results.

And boy, are we glad we separated from them in 1965 to become our own sovereign country.

Because the action over there was nothing but hilarious.

Check it out for yourselves.

1. Citizen journalists in Malaysia claim to have photographic evidence of some dude carrying extra ballots to rig the vote tally.

2. And everywhere Malaysians turned, they walked into more bags carrying extra ballots.

3. Many polling stations experienced 10-minute blackouts. And suddenly, new boxes of ballots appeared out of nowhere.

4. I’m probably not getting this right, but one of the measures is for voters to have their finger painted blue and they proceed to dig their nose?

5. Two hours into counting the votes, ownself declare ownself win.

6. A whole bunch of other people getting themselves arrested.

Er is it just Singaporeans’ perspective or is there something very antediluvian about how things work up north?
