On the eve of Bersih 5 of The Coalition for Clean and Fair Elections known in Bahasa Malaysia name 'Bersih' , I started to make my facebook post below and subsequent posts will follow. My support for Bersih started from a painful experience of Bersih 2 in 9 July 2011 shared in an old blog post of mine found here.
Following my new style of reporting on events using facebook posts on my blog posts, I would advise readers who want to follow more details of my coverage, to see more pics,videos or commentaries, to click the icon for comments of the facebook post found at the bottom of each post. Using this new shortcut presentation method is to help me save time for my work on getting my first book finished and published soon I hope as it takes a lot of time, talent and hard work to write a book!

As the Bersih marchers could not access into Dataran Merdeka, a new place of gathering was decided by the Bersih leaders to be at KLCC. The video below covers the crowds of people gathered at the KLCC. It caused me to be emotional, having tears running down from my eyes. Click here to hear my emotional moments in the video saying, "58 years old, born in Malaysia and I never expected to live to see this day!" In a postdated video of 2 years later when the14th general election was held, click here to see and hear the voters expressing their emotions when the results were out to know the ruling party of the past 61 years had lost!
