“All Soldiers BN or Pakatan making their way to Batang Ai”

Though its only about 4 hours journey from Kuching to Batang Ai the return trip and stoppages would have wasted at least 10 hours of the day. The troops or soldiers of both coalition have made last minute arrangements as they will spend a good two weeks away from home.

Knapsacks,toiletries,medicines,mosquito repellants and other personal items are all packed up by their loved ones as the ground forces starts to make N29 their home away from home. Without the advance parties the party machineries would be considered useless. Preparations and all the contacts to the longhouses where the polling stations are nearby have all been earmarked.

Both sets of supporters or party members would try to avoid each other at these longhouses eventhough they crossed paths quite often as they crisscrossed the rivers.

The word though is that N29 would see amongst the biggest turnout of both sets of supporters and party members from  BN and Pakatan Sarawak. The estimated figures according to Special Branch is that at least 15000 people would converge on this little town of Lubok Antu. Seems that Lubok Antu would be overcrowded and security measures would be tight to avoid any untoward incidents.

It is confirmed that amongst the many names who will be in Sarawak Lubok Antu for the nomination day are newly appointed UMNO Vice President Shafie Abdal together with his counterparts from Sabah parties of PBS,UPKO,PBRS.Meanwhile Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim and a strong team from PKR would also be making their presence felt.

Nothing though beats the political boys or soldiers who will be camped out to be on the call twenty four hours and on the move as and when they are required for BEAT DUTY.

These troops are not in any way the exco’s of the parties but usually like the ‘mercenaries’ or ‘rent a waiter’ types who are unknown in the political fields. They are amongst the most effective of the political machinery. In my early years I had a stint as one and was airdropped(excuse my political jargon) more than once into the rural battlefields.

Sometimes we just received immediate instructions and just vroom, vroom,vroom and of we go into the interiors. The dangers or political landscape could either be friendly or at times scarry. N29 is also a constituency where the unknown lurks if you are a visitor from outside Sarawak.Of course the nomination centre is in the town but real battles are waged in the interiors and in the longhouses of N29.

We say as always,” The battle has already begun and April 7th we would know the outcome. For now the troops and soldiers are all awaiting their instructions.

    Must be a record of sort. It’s like a Mafia annual general meeting really. You’re going to see all the territorial henchmen coming together to carve out more territory. How nice if we could bring back headhunting. Enough trophy heads for all longhouses in Batang Ai. Sigh….

    Subject: Moving from WordPress.com to Self-Hosted WordPress Blog at your own domain name.

    This is Raman from Hire WordPress Experts.com, I will help you how you can move from a wordpress.com blog to your own independent blog.

    If you host your own blog there are several advantages. Particularly if you plan on blogging for your business. On a self hosted blog you are in complete control. Hosting your own means you will be in control of the blog, the database

    If you are using your blog as your business or part of your business, it’s not a great idea to be promoting someone else’s domain like yourname.wordpress.com – which is essentially what you’re doing if you are using a hosted version provided by wordpress.com

    Nothing could be better when you host your blog at wordpress.com? Right?

    Except that…

    * Soon or later, you find out that out of all five billion themes available, you don’t really like any of them, but you have little to no say (or skill) in customizing all but a very few of them.
    * Sooner or later, you find out that you can’t put AdSense or any kind of web widget on your blog that runs on the JavaScript language.
    * Sooner or later, you discover that all the cool functionality other blogs have from something called plugins is not available to you on WordPress.com.

    Plus, having the blog separate from your main site messes up search results because you’re sending people to two different places. It sorta weakens your search strength

    We will help you with the overall process of migrating your current blog at wordpress.com to your own personal blog.

    1. We’ll provide you web hosting which meets all requirements to run WordPress
    2. We’ll help you with deleting all the spam comments on the WordPress.com blog
    3. Export your posts and all data from WordPress.com
    4. Create a MySQL database on the new server
    5. Install and configure WordPress on your own web server
    6. Import the WordPress data
    7. Install theme(s)
    8. Install and configure additional plugins

    How long does the entire migration process take? Well, if all goes smoothly it can usually be done in two or three hours.

    What the fee? The fee is $149 per year and this include your personal .com domain name with web hosting for complete one year.

    Dayaks in Batang Ai will have the chance to exorcise the man who stole their lands and all BN goons who were likely to remain slaves to their evil master forever.

    All that the BN give just take …take and take but vote PKR. Show no mercy to all BN leaders who betrayed your trust elections after elections. It is time to change all Dayak leaders who chose to continue to betray our trust and use government projects as a commodity in exchange for our votes.

    Batang Ai shall be the beginning of an end to the Zionist Melanau Empire. Time to change BN government. Vote PKR. Hidup ketuanan rakyat!
