Another victory for PR, but it's status quo.

Unless you've been living under a rock or have totally tuned out the country's politics, Penang PAS commissioner Mohd Salleh Man is now the Permatang Pasir assemblyman after beating his rival, BN candidate Rohaizat Othman in the by-election. He won with a reduced majority of 4551 votes for the state seat. Read HERE for more details.

The newly elected Permatang Pasir assemblyman (YB) Mohd Salleh Man. Beside him is Deputy Chief Minister (I) Mansor Othman, who won the Penanti state seat end of May this year.

Salleh Man is a nice, humble, soft-spoken guy, who my boss liken him to Yogi Bear. But i believe he needs time to prove himself worthy not only to his Permatang Pasir constituents but to the Pakatan Rakyat state government here as well.

Being part of the team in throughout the by-election was an add-on to experiences i had with by-elections since coming here to the island, and i still have a lot to learn. Tiring, but fun.

Anyway, last Sunday, the church had its Friendship Carnival in conjunction with its 44th Anniversary at the Youth Park. Melissa D, Joshua Lam and myself, together with Courage CG were in-charge of the Captain Ball tournament.

Even before the matches start, it was cloudy, and as we carried out, it started to rain, and pour and pour and pour. But we just carried on. Looks like the rain didn't dampen the spirit of those Captain Ball players out there.

And the Volley Ball balls were trained well to be Captain Ball balls! HAHAHA!~

Will try and upload photos from the event if possible.

Anywya, going off now to watch G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra with Melissa D now! Looks like a storm is coming. Gotta go!

Love & Peace!~
