1000 “We’ve Come A Long Way”

audie61 tookoff  to the cyberworld on May 1st 2008. Our very first article was ,”The Birth of Multi Racialism in East Malaysia” audie61 was not planned to be the voice for some or aligned to any political party. It was a blog shared by all on board with Bugi Wijaya reporting from Sabah, Ally and Joey from Peninsula Malaysia while Cindy and Natasha were stationed in Sarawak covering the vasts state of Sarawak. 

We cover what we know bests and looking back we know we have made enough NOISES to be a force to be reckoned with not only in the cyberworld but also rattled some in media world. We sniff a kill as soon as its let out of the cage and amonsgt the earliest scoops were “SAPP Sabah withdrawal from BN” “Takeover by BN from Pakatan in Perak” Our insiders were on spot inside the rooms when it happened and we broke the news instantly. Bugi Wijaya used to say to us at audie61,” IT WAS SS

It not “SS” like the Nazi’s” but Oooops a lot of people know what is…We hope though.Phew didn’t we knock someones teeth out along the way? Didn’t we take a battering from the emails we received and the hate smses? audie61 took all good or bad with a FORGIVING HEART. We have send felicitations,condolences and congratulations to many and we have tried to reach out to all those in need and destitute desperate for help. It is all WORTH THE WHILE and we intend to go towards our next target.  

There is still so much to look forward to. We have the Hulu Selangor and Sibu Parliamentary elections which is right in the news besides that we might just be able to update our friends,readers and alliances on the SPDP separatists and other exciting updates.

Wonder what caught the imagination the mosts from our friends out there? Our Foes might just be happy if we had not stumble upon them and written about them. Its basically been such a roller coaster ride and we all have enjoyed every minute of it and we have toed the line. Our lawyers are always telling us to be responsible and not fall foul into and direct into the hands of the authorities.

Today its all about us and everyone connected with audie61 has every reason to be proud of reaching the magical number of 1000. We hope you will enjoy with us this special song to commemorate our special day.17th of april 2010″THANKS TO ALL OF YOU WHO KEEP US GOING” .

We’ve come so far and we’ve reached so high
And we’ve looked each day and night in the eye
And we’re still so young and we hope for more
But remember this
We’re not invincible, we’re not invincible – No
We’re only people, we’re only people
Hey we’re not invincible, we’re not invincible
So again I’ll tell you

P212 Sibu May 16th 2010

The following article extracted from an internet portal

Sibu voters will go to the polls on May 16 after an eight-day campaign with nomination day being set for May 8, announced the Election Commission today.

This will be the 11th by-election in the country after the last general election in March 8, 2008.

azlanSUPP’s Robert Lau Hoi Chew, who was also the deputy transport minister, died on Apr 9 after losing in the battle with liver cancer.

At last count, Sibu has 53,679 voters with a Chinese majority of 60 per cent. There is also a large concentration of Melanau (20%), Iban (18%), Orang Ulu (1.1%) and other races (0.9%).

Lau, who had been Sibu MP under the Sarawak United People’s Party (Supp) flag for five terms since 1990, beat Sarawak DAP chief Wong Ho Leng and PKR’s Lim Chin Chuang in a three-cornered fight in the last general election.

Lau won by a majority of 3,235 votes with 19,138 votes against Wong’s 15,903 and Lim’s 812.

MIC “More than you bargained for..!!”

It is almost certain now barring any last minute changes that  party information chief P Kamalanathan will be pick as the candidate for the upcoming P94 Hulu Selangor Parliamentary Seat. He will be pitted against PKR Supreme Council member Zaid Ibrahim.  

Samy Vellu didn’t want V Mugilan, Muhyiddin Yassin said G Palanivel was a no-go.Kamalanathan who lives in Rawang , 44, is the public relations chief for Beras Jati, a rice retail company. He had been tasked by party leaders to rebrand MIC after its disastrous performance at the 2008 general elections.

MIC has come up with a compromised candidate and Palanivel and Mugilan the two front runners will have to settle for the backseat.

The question now is ” Will Palanivel or Mugilan campaign for the candidate? Palanivel may be assured of at least of a Senators posts and  a deputy ministers position. Mugilan has time on his side and he will need to be seen to toe the party lines and he should be given the platform in the next GE.

MIC has bargained for the seat and with the compromised candidate they need now to focus and win back the seat for the BN coalition. Its going to be a tough battle and all partners within the BN coalition needs to set aside personal or party differences or agendas and work for the candidate.

The voters will decide on polling day who they will put an X on. The political parties needs to work hard to secure the constituents of P94 to vote for their man. Hulu Selangor will be in the spotlight for the next seven days before polling as all political soldiers and generals will be crisscrossing the constituency.

PR Sarawak “Go,Go,Go….??”

The first words uttered when he answered audie61 in the telephone was,” Go,Go,Go PR ” This should be what audie61 should be writing about the PR coalition in the run up to P212 Parliamentary elections in Sibu. Now,there is a pact amongst the coalition unlike the last General Elections where SUPP had to deal with not only DAP but also a PKR candidate. This is certainly GOOD NEWS to Pakatan Sarawak members.i.e.DAP,PKR,PAS and SNAP.

Are we hearing something different from the Information Chief of PKR Sarawak See Chee How? Its like saying to us,”Now we are united as ONE and as usual if we are divided we will fall. This is a by election and the BN will use whatever means to wrestle the seat and with the proposed SUPP candidate it will give SUPP the edge as he is fresh faced and the sentiments of compassionate votes might swing to SUPP.

DAP will not take anything forgranted and PKR will be standing right behind and will give all the necessary assistance to try to secure the votes for the PR candidate. We will start as underdog and it will be an uphill tasks but PR will have the spirit and we will go,go,go and audie61 should say correct,correct,correct. 

The facts are there for all to see. It will be a tough battle and eventhough SUPP is embroiled in so much infighting lately and in the news for all the wrong reasons this by elections will see that the leaders will consolidate and with full assistance from all BN coalition partners  P212 Sibu will be a  ” TASTY BATTLEGROUND

THe CM Taib has fired the first salvo last weekend and  has already confidently predicted that SUPP will retain the seat for the BN. PR will try to derail the confidence shown by the BN Sarawak Chairman but we know its going to be one hell of dush,dush dush from the BN. 

PR will just have to look at the positives and get out of this battle brimming with confidence too. We are ready and lets be honest we are go,go,go but please not GUNG HO.

Much has been written in the internet portals of malaysiakini, malaysian mirror, free malaysia today and the battle of P212 in Sarawak has just begun. See Chee How has already sounded the bugle for the troops of PR,”Go,Go,Go….Are you game..??”

SUPP “Political Suicide”

The message from the Bidayuh hinterland especially with SUPP is clear,”Appoint one of the SUPP Bidayuh leaders to the vacant Deputy Federal Ministers posts or the Padawan Council Chairmans posts.” No questions asked and just do it. Will SUPP take notice?

SUPP having losts in the Urban Chinese seats in the last State elections cannot afford to disregard the representation from the Bidayuhs. A voter from Opar said to audie61.Ranum and Peter Minos are absolutedly correct in voicing their voices for the community. If not them who will do it.? What is wrong with asking when there are vacant posts available.?

Peter Minos former DBNA President clearly stated,SUPP cannot afford to have any war with Bidayuh voters unless it seeks political suicide.” A check on the groundswell will reveal that any candidate that represents SUPP in the next State elections will need to work doubly hard and put extra shifts to ensure that the seats are winnable.

If the Bidayuh interests is not looked after in SUPP there will be the ‘threat of SUPP” losing the seats of either Opar or Bengoh. It is so clear already when the main stream English daily Borneo Posts highlighted,”In recent days many quarters have questioned if the party was really multi racial or was just paying lip service” 

 Isn’t this music to the ears of the Opposition parties? SUPP will be paying a very heavy price if they remain inclusive and does not hear the calls of the DRUMS SOUNDING LOUDLY FROM THE BIDAYUH HINTERLAND

The ball is rolled back to the SUPP SC and the leaders and they need ‘collectively’ think for the future of the direction of the party or end up sore losers in the next state elections.

SUPP Infighting and party positions gains are not uncommon in SUPP. In recent months the party has managed to controll the TEAM A versus Team B and also the Dudong Division Saga. This is another fresh challenge for the party hierarchy.

A veteran SUPP member said,” Honestly will the Sibu SUPP camp give up its Deputy Federal posting ? We shall know when its announced but until then they will be a lot of lobbying from the leaders. The Bidayuh leaders needs to be seen to be making the correct noises and create the right cry ” baby ” tantrum.

SUPP as a party is facing a lot of challengers and they need to ovecome all the nitty gritty problems within the party. If the party so decides to stay in the prehistoric mould the party will suffer the indignity of being voted out by the voters. Its very clear that voters today do not and will not be taken for a ride and they will make their voices heard through the ballot boxes.  

The message is clear even without audie61 pouring  hot oil over the blazing and heated fire. The cards are with the party leaders and they need to deal it carefully……. {The Bidayuhs …{ SEEK PEACE AT THE CITY WALLS }

Monday Blues”Hell Explained..??”

audie61 and crew sat down for a brainstorming and breakfast meeting sipping and enjoying the aroma of the cheapest  80cents “Kopi-susu” in the city.

Are we going to write on the SPDP Separatists 5 ,Hulu Selangor or Sibu by elections today.? Too much politics….  we agreed yeah,yeah,yeah and Natasha said she received this email from a friend. She asked us Does anyone “Remember not too long ago some politicians argued about not giving their votes they will not enter HEAVEN…??”

 Joey said ,”Is that so and we have to dig up our files to look for that statement but with Monday Blues upon us the easy way out is to upload this.

Nothing Serious/Malicious but worth your while for a good read…….….

HELL EXPLAINED
 
 BY A CHEMISTRY STUDENT

 

The following is an actual question given on a  University   of Arizona   chemistry mid term, and an actual answer turned in by a student.   

The answer by one student was so ‘profound’ that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well :   

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?   

 Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law (gas cools when it expands and heats when it is compressed) or some variant.  

  One student, however, wrote the following:   

  First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate at which souls are moving into Hell and the rate at which they are leaving, which is unlikely.. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, let’s look at the different religions that exist in the world today.  

   Most of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell. Since there is more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added.

This gives two possibilities:   
    1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.   

   2. If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.  

 So which is it?   

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year that, ‘It will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you,’ and take into account the fact that I slept with her last night, then number two must be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and has already frozen over. The corollary of this theory is that since Hell has frozen over, it follows that it is not accepting any more souls and is therefore, extinct….. ….leaving only Heaven, thereby proving the existence of a divine being which explains why, last night, Teresa kept shouting ‘Oh my God.’  

THIS STUDENT RECEIVED AN A+.

 

SPDP “Strategic Think-Tank”

Mission impossible sSHhh…This message will self destruct within five (5) seconds. Nothing is impossible in politics and according to our insider source the name has been earmarked and his name will be presented to the SC meeting. In politics echoing to what has been said by the President of SPDP,”Its about agreement and not disagreement and Mawan true to his words have followed the advices of his inner circles and took the bold step in Picking and Choosing the Right Person Suited to head this entity.

In our earlier article we wrote on 1st January 2010 which was also our very first article for the year,” S-G SPDP..??”extracted,”someone who has the caught the imagination of the party and public at large. Even those in the BN family are talking about him being burnt to ashes.But as the saying goes,” Like a Phoenix he will rise from the Ashes and claim his Rightful Place.”

What is this about the Think-Tank? It appeared in the English daily Borneo Posts yesterday and Mawan describe the entity as a “high powered’ group that could organise bigger forums for thousands to participate in. what makes it more interesting is that this group will play an advisory role ,update the supreme council and report to the President.

It could be set up by the Supreme council on an ad hoc  basis without the need to follow the constitution simply because there was no provision on such a group.” Isnt’ this professing what Mawan has said,”Agreement instead of Disagreement in politics and also looking beyond what is in front of us.

audie61 made a phone call to the person who was tasked to look into the THINK TANK and he was very excited and was looking forward to getting down to work. Its a Plus for the party and the President has walked his Talk. I am indeed grateful to the party for giving me this opportunity and platform to chart the future direction of the party. We will reap the benefits and we “REAP WHAT WE SOW” he said.

The injection of new blood and also younger members with the parties multi racial concept has recently been able to attract more members into the parties fold. The President welcomes all who has the vision and mission in making the party a strong partner in the the BN family. 

Our insider source also said that up till today Mawan has treated the five who had their little misadventure as “members of SPDP” Its time to consolidate and being home is where the heart is. Just come BACK HOME is the message.

By the way the person picked for this SPDP think tank I seemingly forgot to pen it down is ……SsHhh..self destructed……You saw it right…hehehe.!!!!

P212″First Salvo by BN Taib”

Joey of audie61 received an sms from her ex-colleague.”Your CM has already fired the First Salvo” 

CM Taib BN Sarawak Chairman has already launched the first attack at the opposition even before the Election Commission (EC) receives the notification of an official notice of MP 212 Lau’s death.The dates for nomination and polling will be fixed by the EC.

CM Taib said,”We are ready for the by-election,” and he said the former MP had contributed immensely to the people of Sibu and its development, state and country. Sounding confident Taib said that the BN will retain the Parliamentary seat in the by election.

This will also be a litmus tests for the State BN Government as it needs to face the rakyat for a fresh mandate before June 2011. What will the response from the opposition be..???

“PAS Sarawak 26 Seats…??”

Headlines yesterday,”All is not well in Pakatan Sarawak” audie61 asked a PKR Sarawak Executive member,” Is it a diversionary tactic..?” Where and who are the candidates? Where does this lead to as PKR and DAP will also be fighting head-on for some of the overlapping mixed seats?

If  this is not a diversionary tactic by PAS or the Pakatan Sarawak set up it will really put a ‘spanner in the works“. A Sarawak voter bluntly said to Natasha of audie61,” They need to see out this problem or else the momentum will never swing to the Pakatan. Why fight amongst themseves when the common enemy is BN..? ”  PAS needs to look at its strength in Sarawak  and dont throw the whole coalitions good work into the dumpsite.”

Today SNAP President Edwin Dundang even told PAS to be realistic and not to be arrogant in claiming seats for the next state elections. He said each party in Pakatan Rakyat(PR) must not be greedy for power in the fight against BN.Instead it must ensure that it has good candidates,enough resources,good ground support and not to be seen to be greedy. “I emphasis once again that PR must be very focussed in the allocation of seats to ensure one against one contests as far as possible.

In so far as SNAP is concerned the President said,”SNAP does not want any conflict with DAP,PKR and PAS over the seats distributution. Meanwhile in relation to the seats allocation in a PC the Sarawak State PKR youth announce the movements intention to contest in the 6 state seats of Satok,Semariang,Kedup,Bekenu,Katibas and Repok.

Clearly the signs are there that with the imminent dissolving of the state assembly the Pakatan and BN ground movements are evident.Those who can conjure enough support and resources are all putting their names to the respective parties for consideration. It seems that there will be also Independants who will try to join in the race as in any elections now a “SURE WIN IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE.”

Those who aspire to be candidates must be seen to be accepted by their respective parties as a Winnable candidate be it from BN or Pakatan. PAS and PKR Sarawak Youth have openly claimed stated their intentions and its up to the PAKATAN STATE ELECTION BUREAU to consider. BN will do likewise and of course they will also be “dissatisfaction amongst their ranks”

Will the elections be called soon….?? Only one person has the dates close to his chests and its up to him to have the INSPIRATION…………………
