Just arrived in Johor Bahru, not too far from Gelang Patah (translated Broken Bangle) where the battle of the GE13 between Lim Kit Siang and challenger Ghani Othman, heavyweights in their own right, will rage on right till polling day on May 5th. It was raining heavily and as rain goes, you can take it as a bad omen or rahmat, a blessing.
In far away Sabah, it's raining fire. The birthplace of Pakatan Rakyat's "Ini Kali Lah" slogan for the general election has been anything but a blessing for the Opposition. Its leaders are defecting to Barisan Nasional and at the last count, more than half a dozen PKR bases have closed shop even before the start of the final week of campaigning.
According to Sabahkini, the new happening slogan for the Opposition is Tatap Ranap. Find out what it means h e r e while I venture out of my modest hotel room to find out where Ghani and Kit Siang will be tonight.
