Just watched the video yesterday and it really put a smile on my face. Finally, a cool way of promoting a very important responsibility. Yes, it IS a RESPONSIBILITY that we, as the citizens of Malaysia should take seriously.
Of course, it doesn't hurt that there are some really cool people in the video as well (I won't bother mentioning those I can't stand though, haha), so my kudos goes to everyone involved.
Produced by Pete Teo, I see that both the BM and English versions have managed to rake in a respectable number of views on youtube. A good sign, really.
But the real question now is, have YOU registered to vote? The next general elections is just around the corner, and it would be a big waste if you were to miss the proverbial boat. Come on, people! It's so easy to register, and believe me, come election day, when you actually put that X in a box, the feeling will be one of great satisfaction.
What about ME, you ask? Well, I've voted more times than I can remember. Maybe four or five times, if you insist to know (yes I'm old, diamlah). Ever since I became eligible, I've never shirked my responsibility as a citizen of Malaysia. I remember even going back to JB from KL a couple of times just to vote (without being sponsored by any political party).
Which leads me to my next point. It is an unfortunate truth that there are those out there with a 1001 things to say about everything under the sun, but have yet to even register. I remember one admission by this popular (old) Sopo blogger with millions of hits that the last elections was actually his first. LO to the SER!
The malays say, "cakap je berdegar-degar, tapi habuk pun tarak". So be cool and not a fool, UNDILAH! Cos really, if you pass on the chance, you should just shut up if Malaysia doesn't go your way. Capish?
