Now are we going into the realms of Bollywood, Hollywood and UMNOwood with the Permatang Pasir by-elections? Aisehman how desperate can UMNO get? They have got the best looking candidate for Permatang Pasir by-election? At least that is according to the following The Star  headline this morning.

Barisan man looking good – to the women
BUKIT MERTAJAM: Barisan Nasional’s Rohaizat Othman is looking good before the Permatang Pasir by-election. At least, some women think so.
The by-election is the third in the Permatang Pauh parliamentary constituency since last year’s general election and some villages think Rohaizat is the best-looking candidate so far.
Tanah Liat villager Salmah Ismail, 53, who will be voting for the third time since the general election, said Rohaizat was kacak (handsome).
They even went so far as to quote Salmah Ismail, 53, who thinks that this Rohaizat Othman was kacak. I think at 53, if your eye sight is not that good, even I can be described as ‘kacak’ . Anyway Rohaizat’s wife will not be upset that a 53 year old Salmah Ismail described her husband as ‘Kacak’. Not as upset as when a sweet young thing tells her that her husband is ‘kacak.
As beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, The STAR qualified their report by stating “At least some women think so”. Just for the hell of it I would like to suggest that we call in Amber Chia and get her professional opinion as to which candidate would be more ‘kacak’. If Amber Chia is not acceptable because her interpretation of ‘Kacak’ differs from that of The STAR – then maybe we should consider leaving the judging of the candidate to the voters themselves. It is a sad day for us in Malaysia when the Media has  to highlight the looks of a candidate in a by-election. Thank God I am not with Barisan because with my looks I will never be selected for any by-election. At least we now know that Barisan is finding it harder to buy a by-election – ‘kacak’ has become a requirement. Somebody better tell them that getting an honest, hard working and decent candidate to be their candidate could also help


  1. Abang,

    Seems like "Kacak" is the only quality this candidate has! He is not even qualified to stand at the "bar" and have a beer. Hahahaha...
