(GE12) Chinese election video March 4, 2008

My former housemate, Ginie Lim’s (running in Machap, Melaka) election song.

Translation of the song:-

2008年的一場大選
(In 2008 there’ll be an election)
比安華競選更的早一些
(Right before Anwar qualifies to get elected)
來自全國各地匆忙政客
(Politicians coming from all over the nation)
帶來了甜蜜糖果和無限承諾
(With their sweet candy and promises unlimited)

2008年的馬來西亞
(Malaysia today in 2008)
是貪污強盜霸權橫行的年頭
(Where corruption, banditry and hegemony dominate)
人民本是飛來飛去的蝴蝶
(Her people trapped like butterflies)
關在四面牆的籠子里哭泣
(In a caged existence, her people cries)
忘不了有人高高舉起的短劍
(Can’t forget the “short sword” that was alofted)
隱藏在心中那份憤怒更熱一些
(The heated anger hidden in the hearts arise)
華文教育被人長期忽略
(Chinese education being slowly neglected)
再不要把選票給政客欺騙
(No more votes for these politicians’ lies)
是你的手中一票堅持改變
(It’s the vote in your hands that change can arise)
是你的智慧抉擇換來春天
(It’s the wisdom in your mind that spring will emerge)
是你的手中一票充滿理念
(It’s the vote in your hands that ideals will rise)
是你的公正勇敢換來新天
(It’s with your justice and courage that a new day will surge)

Wow, finally your election website – http://elizabethwong.org/ – is up!

Just a suggestion, the “enter site” clickable label being at the very bottom of the page is quite difficult to find. To avoid losing visitors (and potential voters), put the label just below the line, “Speaking Truth To Power” to make it more prominent.
