My guess is that the media handlers of BN had decided to hire some sorts of consultants and an army of well trained cybertroopers to fight for them. If that's really the case, then I hope they will do a good job and not cost too much. Maybe it is a good thing for BN to hire professionals instead of relying on amateurs like myself to fight for them in cyberspace.
I'm okay with what ever the BN people want to do as long as their new cyberwar strategy is better than the one they employed for the 13th General Election where BN cyber-forces were outclassed and outsmarted. The independent bloggers on BN side did contributed a lot but they were also not good enough to battle the more disciplined Pakatan cybertroopers, particularly those hired by the DAP.
Well, that's about it then.
As for today, I actually just want to write about the current Chinese New Year mood.
I am going back with my mother to our kampung in Kluang, Johor to celebrate the occasion.
I had bought a dress and a pair of shoes for the celebrations.
I always buy a new pair of shoes for Chinese New Year.
This year, all my aunts and their families in Singapore will come back to Kluang to celebrate.
I do look forward to meet them, especially my favorite cousin KH.
This new year is my year - The Year of the Horse.
Hopefully, it's going to be better than last year, which is not really a tall order since last year was quite a bad year for me.
I think the Chinese community will have a good time too over the next 12 months.
For one thing, they should be celebrating the fact that the evil BN government which most of them spat upon at the GE13 last year had decided to be less vengeful than expected.
Whatever was promised to the Chinese community by BN during the election campaign were actually being fulfilled despite more than 90 per cent of them voted for Pakatan in what had since been known as the Chinese tsunami.
You can read an example of the fulfilled promises at this Johor-edition of NST report by Chuah Bee Kim at her blog -
As it is, this Malay-led BN government is not as bad as being portrayed by DAP.
Malays are after all an easy going bunch of people.
Violence, vengeance and vendetta were not really part of their culture. They normally would only react out of their gentle character if subjected to extreme provocation and being pushed to a corner where they have no choice but to defend themselves.
Just look at that call to boycott Chinese business interests after the Chinese tsunami of GE13. As predicted by even the Chinese commentators in this blog at that time, the whole thing was just a "hangat-hangat tahi ayam sahaja" thing. The Malays do not have the capacity to collectively punish others. It is just not in their character to do such things. It's as simple as that.
So, as far as I am concerned, the coming Year of the Horse will be a good year for the Malaysian Chinese....the same as it has always been good years ever since their forefathers came to this blessed country and turned it into their home.
