The Memories of PRU13

This entry is about the memories of PRU13 (the 13th General Election). Without going into too much detail, it would be sufficient to say that I played a small part in helping a candidate to win a state seat in Petaling Jaya. My role was mostly in media and communication, with also small parts in house-to-house visits to local voters during the campaign period.

There won’t be much words in this entry, but the images represent certain parts of the memories. Not all of them are from my own lenses – some are what I received from text and Whatsapp messages.

Masbak – my favourite taxi driver in KK, I later found out he was a staunch supporter of Pakatan Rakyat. Here he was proudly displaying the ‘Ini Kalilah’  button badge.
