POLITICAL TENSIONS RISE IN MALAYSIA- The Day Before The Elections
We are actually a bit worried to be honest. Tomorrow is election day here in Malaysia and they say a huge new party is standing a good chance for the first time to be elected and it may cause great turmoil. We’ve been told by the hostel staff and several vendors in town not to leave the hostel at all tomorrow, that there may be riots and demonstrations.
Actually, as I write there are tons of cars in the streets honking. Some say, the real mess may explode on Monday, once the election results come in. We’ll be fine either way and will stay indoors for the next two days but it makes you feel a bit helpless when there is any tension politically or otherwise anywhere you are in the world, even your own hometown.
We won’t be going ANYWHERE tomorrow even though I must admit there is in me the foolish invincible journalist feeling that I can capture it all to show the world. I’ll see if I can convince Kobi that I’ll be careful and go out for a bit and see what I can record.
I’m actually a bit worried food-wise. The street stands closed early today because of the elections and I didn’t make it on time to get my watermelon of the day. I’ve been doing a a raw food fast (e-hem, *cough* raw minus pastries) this week so I don’t have much fruits or veggies to hold us for two days. We make a huge salad every day. And we ran out of gas to cook with so we may have to eat Oreos for lunch for a day or two for BackHome Hostel sells that, and Pringles and MSG-kissed noodle soup packs. Whipee!
Our kids will love it! “Remember those two days we ate nothing but Oreos all day?’ Joy and Happiness. And Dahnya has been with a high fever all day and now at night.
Tomorrow, Malaysian Election Day will be quite an interesting one. Oh, and we’ll be on Israeli’s biggest radio station again tomorrow. Fun, fun, fun! See some cool videos and photos I took from the streets on Malaysia Election Day.
