Finally the BIG day is approaching. Even people who never read news also know that General Election day is around the corner, as political party flags are in every corner of Sabah. On 5 May 2013, besides Malaysian citizens, the dead people, phantom voters, blue-card foreigners such as Pakistanis, pilak and 150-year old people will vote too. This will be the dirtiest and most intense poll in our history.

Sabah has been the “fixed deposit” of Barisan Nasional (BN) government. As the opposition parties can’t work together to contest BN 1 to 1, I guess nothing much will change in Sabah, except a handful of urban constituencies. Well, there are always surprises.

However, I can’t say the same for Peninsular Malaysia. It would be another political Tsunami after 308, and bigger..

To attract voters, all parties employ different methods to catch eyeballs. For example, making their flags visible in the highest spot.

The flags even “fight” among themselves. I record the following “flag-fighting” photos at same spot on different days, and find it quite amusing as ALL parties are involved LOL. These photos are taken at the busiest junction of Kota Kinabalu city.
