Malaysian General Election Voting Procedure

The sad truth about myself is that I've never actually voted in any of our nation's general elections. The March 2008 elections happened before I turned 21, so naturally I had to sit that out. In light of all these, I've never experienced an election, but I got this in the email today and thought "Whether is it true or not, the preventive step is really small and insignificant so there's no harm doing it". Do take a look.
PLEASE bring along your own pencil ERASER. It is VITAL that we get this information across to as many people as possible. 1. As soon as you enter the polling station, you will be ushered to Kerani 1, who will check your personal identity against your NRIC. He/she will then read out your name, NRIC number and the Siri/Bilangan number in accordance to the List provided by the Election Commission (SPR).

2. Once all that is verified, Kerani 1 will pass your NRIC to the next officer, Kerani 2.

3. Here, Kerani 2 will hand you a ‘Kertas Undi,’ which is identified by its Serial Number. As a Voter, please know your rights. You have the constitutional right under our Election Laws to NOT accept the ‘Kertas Undi’ that the officer assigns to you. You CAN and should ask for a different ‘Kertas Undi’ from a different book. To do that, just say to the officer, “Encik (or Cik), saya minta Kertas Undi dari buku lain atau dari bawah.” Translated, that is, “Sir (or Madam), I like to request a different ballot paper from a different book or from below.” This must be done so that the Voter CANNOT be identified via the SPR’s Master List. It will take just ONE voter to upset the whole sequence, which will eventually affect the SPR’s Master List for that voting centre. The aim of doing this is to SAFEGUARD every Voter’s identity. No one has the right to know how you want to vote.

4. Once your ‘Kertas Undi’ is issued to you, just stand there and do NOT leave immediately.Instead please CHECK BOTH SIDES of the ballot paper in order to ensure that there are NO pencil markings or Any other form of suspicious markings on it. If there are, REJECT the ballot paper issued to you and instead request for these markings to be either erased to your satisfaction or for you to be issued with a new ‘Kertas Undi.’ Also do NOT accept any loose-lying ‘Kertas Undi,’ which may have been strewn about because it was rejected by someone else earlier. ALWAYS ask for a fresh ballot paper from the book. An alternative, as suggested by certain other people via email, is to Bring along your own eraser so that when you see any pencil marks, you can rub them off completely yourself.

5. Kerani 2 will then hand the ‘Kertas Undi’ to the next officer, Kerani 3. Kerani 3 carries a seal, which will be used to stamp your ‘Kertas Undi.’ PLEASE watch carefully that the officer stamps your ballot paper FULLY and CLEARLY. After that, see that it is folded into two before the ballot paper is handed over to you. Incomplete stamp mark can and will render your ballot paper as spoiled vote.

6. You can now proceed to the voting booth.

7. At the booth, please ensure that the ballot paper has only your ONE marking of a single X. If for whatever reason, suspicious or otherwise, you overlooked some pencil marks of numbers or markings on the front or back of the ballot paper (ie other than your own mark), please ERASE those markings completely. REMEMBER, these markings can and will render your ballot spoiled – so be Extra Cautious. The most careful approach is to check your ‘Kertas Undi’ thoroughly before you accept it from the officer.

REMEMBER to check it in front of the relevant officer so that if you have to reject it, he is right in front of you.

8. Do not be afraid or cower in fear when you have to express your objections because there are representatives from the various participating political parties who will be there to observe the whole voting process and they are there to assist you as and when you need. As mentioned earlier, It is this kind of information that GUILTY PARTY does not want others to know. They thrive on public ignorance so that they can do whatever they feel like brazenly. One way to stop them is to send this information to as many of your friends as possible so that everyone, on voting day, knows exactly what to do, knows his/her constitutional voting rights and is aware of Print this out and keep it safely. When Voting Day finally arrives, it will be handy for you to access and read again.
TL;DR: Bring an eraser, erase all pencil marks on your ballot paper.

Male Bonding

It was one of those days where nothing went wrong, but you feel as though everything went wrong. A dark cloud hung over my head, periodically striking me with little discharges of electrons, contributing towards a slight throbbing in my head.

Oh fuck, I just hate Fridays. Perhaps its the impending weekend; I hate weekends, its so boring. Like any other weekend, I occupy myself pecking away at the computer, which I already see 8 hours a day; perhaps I should get a PS so that I can up my game.

A quick glance outside tells me that traffic conditions are fucked up. More delays, I thought as I prepped myself for an extended stay in the office. MSN links me to my friends, and I type furiously away at the keyboard; 85wpm when I last checked.

Light dinner plans were cooked and off we went.

"Lets spend some manly time together," I suggested.

"What manly time? That sounds damn gay! Its called male bonding!"

Walking along the road, we share a few crude jokes and I laugh out Michbaby style.

"Hurr hurr hurr"

By chance a fellow female pedestrian was beside me, turned around to see who was this bastard with a lecherous laugh.

Over sushi, we talk about how fucked up our days were, and how could we make it better.

"Eh, did you notice that girl who turned around when I laughed?"

"Eh yaya! She looked so disgusted!"

"Isn't she the girl who has damn big boobs?" my dinner mate asked loudly; we were talking about different girls. I hide my face in shame, "Dude, not so loud please!"

"My mommy said cannot mix with Ah neh neh because they got kutu!" A play later told me that.

"Eh, what you want to marry an Ah neh neh next time?

The Ah neh neh in the play was such a funny fucker.

Perhaps that particular Friday wasn't so bad after all.

Duck Meat

Bananas was sending me home one day when he realised that he had no dinner. He bought half a duck for the night's consumption at a roadside stall.

Being the nosy person that I am, I tagged along in hopes of finding some hidden food jewels.

"Hey look at the dog," Bananas pointed him out to me "his balls are stuck between his legs"

"Haha what the fuck!"

"Eh go and pinch its balls! Then stand there for 5 seconds."


"I'll give you my roast duck."


"Three seconds!"


We got into the car.

"Imagine if we shoot his nuts with a BB gun."

"What will happen if the pellet pierces the scrotum? Will it start bleeding?"

"Nah, don't think so. The gun is quite weak."

Something tells me that I need better friends.

p/s: I won't mind shooting with a rubber band.

Evelyn Lee

I call her Evie.

So I was talking crap with her one fine night where I mentioned cuter girls are preferred over the real hot ones. It would be worthy to note that cute in this case would not fit the clichéd teenage definition of 'ugly but adorable'.

Evie: "You just like girls that look vulnerable so you can shag them silly wtf."

I need better friends.
