And last night,
It's without doubt that the coalition wouldn't be able to do that without something like this happening,
Yet, some hate-mongers may still try to argue that most Chinese still hate BN and insist for the Malays to throw them into the sea.
They will come up with all sorts of charts and statistics to deny the changing Chinese voting trend as well as concocting all sorts of theories to continue trying to convince the Malays that they must hate the Chinese.
They will write long articles to look impressive by repeating the same points several times to spread their message of hate.
But I'm confident that the Malays will not listen to these bad people.
After all, Malays are not mindless racists.
Malays are generally good and peaceful Muslims.
After last night, I truly believe that the Chinese tsunami of 2013 has finally became just a past nightmare.
Many Chinese may still support the opposition but now there is a significant number of them who prefer to keep an open mind about giving their support to BN.
Last night, the Chinese once again proved themselves to be pragmatic voters.
Some of them apparently saw that the opposition was in too much of a mess with their in-fighting that it was pointless to vote for them.
If BN continues to play it nice like during the two by-elections, I'm confident more of them will support the ruling coalition.
As it is, I think this was the best move by BN for the by-elections,
I think many Chinese appreciate that and returned the favour by voting BN.
The Chinese are not all ungrateful bunch of people like those hate-mongers were trying to portray them.
For me, it's not so much the BN's victory at the by-elections that made me happy, but the fact that the apparent shift of voting trend among the Chinese indicates that we Malaysians don't have to go against each other anymore like in this past decade.
Most importantly, if this trend continues, Malaysia will not be so racially polarised anymore.
It's good, isn't it?
Really, better to be friends than hate each other just because of our race.
Think about it, guys.
Okay, I'm going to spend the rest of the day sleeping until buka puasa time.
Need to rest after a very long ride last night.
Here's a song to suit the mood,
My father loves that song by the legendary Momoe Yamaguchi.
This is the Malay version of it,
Okay, peace everyone :)
