Harry Connick Jr "My New Orleans Tour"

I was at the Harry Connick Jr concert tonight. It was FUCKING AWESOME!!! Best part is, I won the tickets in a contest! I read in the Sunday Times of a contest by Dockers to win 2 x RM300 tickets to watch HCJ in concert. I am no good with writing out contest form, getting an envelope, stick a stamp on the envelope and actually getting to a post box to post the contest form. This contest said to email in the answer. I thought I can do that! So, that was what I did :D

Last Wednesday, I got a call to say I've won the tickets!!! WOOOT! PT wasn't in town, so I brought along my girlfriend, Lia, who needed a night out. We bopped and wiggled in our seats and tapped our feet, all the while wondering why nobody else was doing that. I guess the concert being in the Dewan Filharmonik, most people there think they have to behave a certain way. Man, HCJ and his Big Band were playing such good music to groove to, it was difficult keeping still. I was quite tempted to jump out to the aisle to dance!

HCJ had a great sense of humour and a certain charm about him that says he'll be great at parties. He will fit right in with us at our parties at home. The boys in the band loved their music and it was obvious watching them play. I love watching musicians who love what they do play. Their passion is felt by the audience. What an experience!

I am a HCJ fan now. Even bought his new album "Oh My NOLA" at the venue.

This is one of the way (non-violence) to bring our message to the Government. Don’t just sit there, stand up and be counted!

Why do we need to reform the Election Commission?

1) Gerrymandering. The discrepancy between number of voters in voting areas is too great. The smallest parliamentary seat (Federal Territory, Putrajaya) has only 6,608 voters while the parliamentary seat for Kapar in Selangor has 112,224 voters. What this means is that one vote in the Putrajaya parliamentary constituency is equivalent to 17 votes in the Kapar constituency.

2) Phantom voters. A common tactic is to ‘buy’ the identity card of the voters. Party members from the ruling parties will then vote on the voters’ behalf. Random checking of a person’s identity must be conducted using those finger print checking device (like the bank use). Any voting done on another person’s identity must be made a serious offence under the election law.

3) Postal votes. The rules on postal voting must be reviewed, tightened and amended. The current rule favours the ruling party as the armed forces personnel and policemen who vote by ‘postal voting’ would obviously not jeopardize their career or promotion prospect by voting for the opposition. Voting under postal voting is not secret as it is under the watchful eyes of the senior officers.

4) Spoiled votes. How do we define spoiled votes. It is very easy to turn good votes into spoiled votes (by adding one more x to the ballot paper). Are spoiled votes being verified and watched over by the party representatives? In marginal areas in which the winning margin is razor thin, the so-called spoiled votes need to be scrutinized.
