I’m not talking politics here and I won’t entertain any political comments in this post also(I’m likely to delete them) because it’s always the same thing over and over again, you no need say I already what you want to say. You know, I know, we all know. It’s nothing new anyway. This is not a heavy topic too, I’m just sharing my experience.
Attended SUPP Convention at BCCK last Sunday. Let’s just say I was there for the sake of being there or whatever you called it hahaha…
This is the largest event I had ever attended. They said that they targeted 5000 people but 6000 turned up. Really that many or not, I’m not sure. Everyone was wearing the same t-shirt, so many people, what a scene! I was seated up-stair. When lunch break, it’s really hard to move! The lifts were full and many people going down using the staircases and escalators. A sea of people in red and yellow t-shirt. *gulp*
What you see here is just a portion of those attended. Was there at 7.30am.
Most importantly, our PM was there. That’s the only reason I’m interested *LOL* Never see PM in-person, only on TV all these while. I’m so sakai. Anyway, I’m not his fan, he’s just Malaysia PM to me. Both PM and CM were scheduled to reach there at 9.45am but they only turned up at around 10.30am. PM was supposed to go to another event at Sungai Tapang at 10am and that side had to delay the programme to 12 something.
Firstly, it was DCM (Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr. George Chan Hong Nam) who gave his speech, asking for allocation and talking about how Sarawak had contributed to the country. Also, not to forget, he congratulated and shared the joy of CM (Pehin Sri Dr. Abdul Taib) who recently got a new wife and the wedding reception was on Saturday night at DUN which caused everyone to laugh(either it’s sincere laugh or sinister laugh from the audiences, it’s up to you to think which one was it LOL).
Secondly, it was CM (Pehin Sri Dr. Abdul Taib) who gave his speech. I don’t remember what he talked about, was busy entertaining myself ;p
Lastly, it was PM’s (Dato’ Sri Najib Razak) turn. No specific amount of allocation promised but it sounded something like this(not exact), “I only want winners. George, I only want people who can win. I don’t care who they are. As long that you all do your job and win, I will give what you need.” Obviously many people were disappointed because there’s no promise of monetary allocation to the party. What do you expect?!?! Lost so many seats, almost all, you think he was happy with it? PM is not stupid, he calculates gao gao one. Besides that, not to forgot he did mention few times about our CM new relationship status which again caused everyone to laugh. PM was there at CM’s wedding reception on Saturday too.
Left: From the projector. CM and PM after PM made his speech waiting to officiate the convention and receiving souvenirs from both CM and DCM.
Right: After officiating the convention, it was almost 1pm. He left for the next function. This is the closest I could get from my camera. Many photographers/reporters were up-stair with me and they shouted, “PM, look up! Up here!”. Then, PM looked up, they snapped, snapped, snapped as many as they could. I didn’t manage to get the shot because of my setting hahaha… DCM was behind PM.
Basically, that’s the summary of the convention. What an experience.
