Basically, it's a post election effect on the bunch of unhappy people of what's happening around in Malaysia. Well, "kalau kalah tu, kalah la" , does it really mean "kalah la"? Or does it really mean, otherwise? I personally didn't expect some stuff or words uttered by some of the leaders in Malaysia which I 'thought' I had respect for. Especially me, coming from Malacca, looking at Malacca developing. But, i guess it was kinda tarnished upon reading some articles.
Not being bias, but just being judgmental upon reading some articles. Most of us would have missed the article over our local newspaper, The Star. But, it was highlighted by a dear friend of mine. So, if this is the message that would like to be passed on the civilians and the people of Malacca, so why not just talk about it?

Mohd Ali: I have to rethink Malacca city plans
MALACCA: Although assuring continued development in Malacca, newly sworn-in Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the “drive” to spur development within the city may be disrupted.
Mohd Ali said he would have to “think twice” with regard to new projects coming into the city as hopes of making it a more vibrant one had been dashed owing to DAP’s control of it.
“We wanted to develop it further but the rakyat is not so interested.
If there are new things (projects), maybe I have to think twice,” he said, adding that he would not shift projects which had been previously earmarked.
Projects that had so far been announced such as the coastal road, the Malacca River beautification, flash flood mitigation, monorail and education would still continue, he added.
“I had a vision to brighten and liven up the city but this drive (semangat) may be disrupted now,” he said, adding that that was the reason for his appeal for voters to support Barisan in the polls.
Despite the setback, he said he would continue towards achieving a developed state status for Malacca by 2010.
He added that a state-level post-mortem would be carried out to determine the factors causing the losses in the polls.
Earlier, Mohd Ali took his oath of allegiance as the Chief Minister of Malacca for a third term at 8.15am before Malacca Governor Tun Khalil Yaakob in a ceremony held at the Governor’s office.
He later announced the line-up of the 10-member state exco that comprises seven elected representatives from Umno, two from MCA and one from MIC.
They are Datuk Md Yunos Husin, Datuk Yaakob Amin, Datuk Abd Ghafar Atan, Datuk Mohd Hidhir Abu Hassan, Datuk Latiff Tambi Chik, Datuk Abd Karim Sulaiman and Norpipah Abdul.
The MCA excos are Datuk Seet Har Cheow and Gan Tian Loo and R. Perumal is the MIC representative.
