Tonight my people congregated at the stadium to make their voices heard. All we want, is a cleaner fairer election. All we want, is for them to not treat us like damn fools, not use that racist slur to divide the people. A little respect from them would be nice. Tonight my heart swells with pride, because their dirty tricks didn't work on many of us, and I still see hope for my country, despite everything. Democracy doesn't happen overnight, it's a long and hard fight, but at least we're not alone.

We used to joke that whenever/wherever there's free stuff, you can expect high turnout because we Malaysians love free stuff (who doesn't?!). But tonight there was no goodie bag, no free food nothing free whatsoever, only the People Power. Tonight we were one.
On a completely different/random note, I stumbled upon this video that's just pure awesomeness- Lip Sync-Off between Jimmy Fallon and John Krasinski. Take a few minutes off and watch this. It'll put a smile on your face. :)
