There is nothing that I can say about the GE outcome that hasn't been said (or blogged) already. Except maybe that the term 'winds of change' appropriately describes the post-election mood in Malaysia. I've been following the progress of the GE through bloggers' posts and online newspapers from the parties involved and form both alliances. It's good to know that despite the heavily biased media, there are still an abundance of unbiased and forward-thinking minds (I could heap more praise on them but then there'd be no end to it, would there?) out there who are objectively and unemotionally scrutinizing this historic period and giving their two-cents about it. Perhaps the country isn't in such dire straits as I imagined it to be. It's amusing how there are still individuals who succumb to their political fervor by invading people's blogs and unleashing torrents of insults thinly veiled by political righteousness. Surely anyone in their right mind can see how futile that is. Even more amusing is how these people hide behind fake names or anonymity, which corrodes what little truth or credibility their comments might have had to begin with. Part of me wishes I was back home to witness this momentous occasion. Then again, this could be the best (or proper) position for me to observe the turn of events around Malaysia.
The next five years is going to be an interesting ride, indeed.
