Sibu is now in a sea of posters and billboards! The whole fury of poster war was kicked off right after the nomination.
The billboards are reflective of the themes of the respective fronts. The main thrust of BN is continuing developments for Sibu. PR is very much change-based, using the 5 (now 4) PR-controlled states as the highlights.
The election rallies are heating up. PR with its high-powered speakers from WM is crowd-pulling. BN, on the other hand, works through associations and grass-root levels to get the messages across.
Rumours are sweeping through the town. The whole Sibu town is now submerged in hot kopitiam talks. I made an effort to check my constituency on http://www.spr.gov.my/ and was shocked to find that I have unknowingly joined the other voters of P212 Sibu in a mass migration to P211 Lanang. I felt quite helpless!
I still can't get over that I am not voting in this by-election!
