On Saturday afternoon, the official letter from KeADILan was issued.
Yes, I am a candidate 🙂
My opponent is the incumbent Datin Paduka Yong. This won’t be an easy battle.


Running around, meeting residents and volunteers, public speaking (sometimes spontaneous), fundraising, filling up forms, getting freaked out by new overnight regulations, wanting to slap the Elections Commission (who can give 2 different answers to the same question), not having enough time to eat, missing my kitten, missing my boyfriend even more, having phones depleted in a matter of a couple of hours, car breaking down, receiving a call from my high school friend who’s gotten 20 lawyers to join KeADILan ….

And today’s just Nomination Day!

Go ahead do your duty to overthrow them!

Aiya auntie Elizabeth! This is just the beginning and you are making so much noise already. No wonder you are still out of the ‘elected circle’. Unlike the MCA’s fried bee fun and DAP’s Theresa Kok, they are dedicated to their tasks and are still ‘virgins’?

This ‘fried bee fun’ is just a real disgrace to the people in her constituent for closing the Damansara Chinese school. This fried bee fun focus on plundering wealth and lands in her constituent and this is why she still is favored by Emperor Ong of the MCA’s Ong Dynasty.

Whereas Theresa Kok is still dedicated in her job as the Saputeh MP, but what could she do in a Lim’s Dynastic Party?

And our dear Untie Princess Eliz of Keadilan, though just the beginning, has already complaining missing your kitten and boyfriend.

Sigh! It appears you are still lagging behind MCA’s ‘Fried Bee Fun’ and DAP’s Theresa Kok.

Your mind is still filled with images of your kitten and boyfriend, and not the residents/voters of your contesting constituent. If you want to be elected as a state assembly, sorry to say, you have to save the images of your boyfriend and kitten to the archives of your brain memory and focus on your campaign 110%. Then you might find your opponent is not as formidable as you thought.

So my dear princess cum Auntie Eliz, time to put on a yellow cap and start campaigning day and night for 2 weeks. Get tough physically, mentally and spiritually.

Treat the people and voters in your contesting constituent like your kitten and boyfriend, then you will join Theresa Kok in the ‘elected circle’.

Otherwise you can join ‘fried bee fun’ selling mee goreng in a stall in SS2 or Mutiara Damansara after the GE, ha ha ha ha

Cheers, best of luck and adios.

My family and I appreciate the sacrifice made by all members of opposition parties. It’s tough and it’s a long road.
We wish you good health in your preparation for this challenge and pray that with God’s Blessings, we’ll see some changes in this coming election.

15. Samson - February 24, 2008

I am from Penang and will be voting for the Barisan Rakyat at the Bayan Baru seat. The candidate is someone from PKR. I have enough of the BN ineffective and corrupt administration.

Though I won’t be able to vote for you, I am sure there are many like me in your constituency wanting a change in the government. Take heart, work hard, continue to fight for justice and pray for God’s favour in you among the people in your constituency.

Let us say no to BN and let us have a Bangsa Malaysia-Malaysia for Malaysian

Wish you the best of luck in your quest to represent the people of B. Lanjan.

20. Mat Salo - February 24, 2008


Am so proud that I’ll be in your constituency! Unfortunately I won’t be giving you my vote –or anybody else for that matter –since I’m currently “incarcerated” on a drilling rig off the coast of East Kalimantan during the polls. ):

But I’ll see what I can do for the cause…

Best of luck! Perhaps there’ll be e-votes the next time around eh?

21. Sagaladoola - February 24, 2008

Hi Eli,

Sadly, I am not in Bukit Lanjan. However, you have my support. Wish you the best of luck. I hope and pray that you are chosen.

23. tomatoinc - February 24, 2008

Hi Liz,

I would thought you re a more a DAP person than a Keadilan person. Nevertheless, All the best, and hope you ll be the beckon of change in the Selangor state assembly!

24. Mohd Saiful - February 24, 2008

We support you 100%.
but I’m voting for Parlimen KAPAR (vote Tan Sri Khalid – PKR) & Dun MERU (Dr Abd Rani-PAS), like you, both of them are the best people in my area, more capable & responsible, the are ‘Pejuang Rakyat’ compare than BN Candidate who are not ‘Pejuang Rakyat’ but only ‘pejuang parti politik’ for themselves !
Live EW ! Fight and Never Give Up !

BTW, “Indelible Indian Ink”?
(and costing RM42+ a bottle – what size?!)

What stupid and deceitful claim about the usage of Indian ink on finger tip. Said to be indelible for 2 weeks!

It wouldn’t take 2 minutes to erase that!

28. malaysiancares - February 24, 2008

Would appreciate if you could update us where and when is your next ceramah so that we the residents in your constituency can attend to show our support.Just spend a few minutes of your precious time to update us on your blog. THANKS.

29. Peter Lim - February 24, 2008

Malaysians need candidate of your caliber to lead us rather than most “rubbish” that we are having at the moment.

Dear Eli,

Nice to hear that you are standing in the Bukit Lanjan as an opposition candidate to fight for justice and equality. I might have not know you but we give fully our moral support to you in your quest to become the next ADUN of Selangor. Just fight hard and you will achieve your goal on March 8.

May God Bless You

33. Juan - February 25, 2008

Dear Elizabeth,

My name is Juan and I’m from Bandar Sri Damansara, voting for Parlimen Subang and DUN Bkt Lanjan.

My dad and I were at Paya Jaras PAS Centre tonight (24 Feb) to witness the introduction of the Alternative Front candidates including yourself.

My dad and I, from what I observed, were the only Chinese there. We were there to get to know and lend our support to, especially you and Sivarasa, for whom we will surely be voting for. Both of you can be assured of 4 votes from my family.

However, I need to comment on the proceedings. During your speech, I noticed you are struggling with the Malay Language and that you apologised for your lack of proficiency and for not being so politically-skilled, since you joined Keadilan only 2 or so years ago. To me, it’s understandable, judging from your background (I checked out your website) and the PAS and Keadilan people around me didn’t mind and said it’s ok.

After the speeches, Sivarasa walked around to greet the crowd. He came to us and spoke to me, and I pledged my support and promised him to spread the words of hope and change.

In fact, I was hoping to speak to you too and express my hope that you come to address the residents of Sri Damansara, where you can speak in English comfortably. But, to be frank, I was disappointed that you did not do so. You were walking away from the crowd. I tried to approach you but you were on the mobile phone. Anyway, I don’t blame you since this is your first time in a political election campaign. But I would suggest that the next time you be more alert as to who are the people in the crowd and reach out to greet them after a speech event and listen to what they, the rakyat, may want to convey to you, just like what Sivarasa did.

My dad and I again will be at the Ceramah at Kg Melayu, Sg Buloh on 26 Feb at 9.30pm, where Anwar Ibrahim will be attending and I’m sure Sivarasa and you will be there too, right? This time, I hope that, at the end of the event, you will be reaching out to the crowd to greet them, and I hope to speak to you briefly.

Reach out, meet and speak to your constituents and you’ll be assured of an easy battle to topple BN’s Yong Dai Ying of Gerakan!

Lawan Tetap Lawan, Lawan Sampai Menang!


EW: Dear Juan, Thanks for your feedback. My apologies for not being able to meet you in person. I was in fact on the phone, trying to find where Sivarasa was, as I was in discussion with some women at the back. Usually in a PAS crowd of mainly men, they would feel startled if I put my hand out.:D I hope to be able to get more warmed up (re speeches) and to meet with you soon.

34. bamboo river - February 25, 2008

Eli, my best wishes and good luck to you!

35. kaki ayam - February 25, 2008

emm…i wrote that I move away as you were speaking in canto. but do not misunderstand by thinking that I went away because I could not tahan your canton. I went away as I was late in attending to some issues. The reason I was there in the first place was to listen to you (and to take a good look at you…keke…)

36. stenson - February 25, 2008

I am with you all the way Eli.Wong.May the Good Lord bless you with courage and tenacity to fight this difficult battle.May you win in style.

37. reason - February 25, 2008

Hi, I wrote this and sent it to bukitlanjan08@gmail.com and it bounced back twice:

Hello, Elizabeth,

I am so pleased that you are contesting in Bukit Lanjan. Just to let you know that I’ve been following your blog closely and you have my vote.

I’d like to help you and Sivarasa, so if you have leaflets and stuff that you need distributed in BU11 and BU12, do let me know.

All the best,

The offer still stands. Do let me know

EW: It’s
