Congratulation to the DAP for taking over Penang. Not supporting on any side because I don’t want create problem. Just be center man. Now we will have a change. Let’s see what DAP can do for our state. I hope Penang can compete with other cities like Singapore, Guangzhou, Melbourne etc etc.
I want to know the result of the election but I have to wake up in 4 hours time to get ready to the airport. So, I had to go to bed now. Happy election and don’t start fighting. Be friendly, be mature, be sporting. We are cool, you are cool.
