Ubah Sarawak Ubah -Nothing Else Matters



Ubah! Ubah! Ubah Sarawak Ubah!

Ahh... I haven't been doing some cheering for the longest time. I wish I could do that this time for our Sarawakian brothers and sisters since tomorrow is the most important day for them for many years to come.

Tomorrow, they will come out and vote. I was told that the ballot boxes will move from one long house to another so it is just so imperative to ensure that the voters are at the correct time for them to cast their votes. Such logistic complexity poses an inevitable risk for these boxes could be changing hands and contents and by the time the count stopped, the result could be far from reality in the ground. Such devastation could just numb our Sarawakian brothers and sisters because they know they wanted to UBAH and vote they did. How could things go so wrong for so long?

"That's a small step for a man, a giant leap for mankind" ~ Neil Armstrong

Psychologically, deep inside us, there's always an urge to do something good for others because it is the right to do.

I appeal to all those people who are involved in tomorrow's event to carry out their actions in humane and responsible manners. Please do not deny the rights of these people who have been caged by your inconsiderate actions in the past, changing the path of history to the bleak reality they have to face every single day for the past 30 years.

I appeal that you help them to carry out their right to vote whom they deem the best to UBAH their life.

I appeal that you feel for them as much as you feel when your favourite soccer player was sent off with a red card because the referee was biased.

You, in your personal capacity, can make things right!

For Sarawakian brothers and sisters and those people who have helped to galvanise their spirit to UBAH their destiny, I, for once, want to share Metallica's "Nothing else matters".


So close, no matter how far
Couldn't be much more from the heart
Forever trusting who we are
and nothing else matters

Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
and nothing else matters

Trust I seek and I find in you
Every day for us something new
Open mind for a different view
and nothing else matters
