Do not be lazy okay…
From some friends, it does seem that the voting fever this time is much more subdued. Many predicting that some colours may win. I say, go vote lah. The decision will come later. Many reasons have been stated but I think they are all small reasons versus the importance of voting. Go do it yeah. Remember to drive safely and stop anytime needed for a cup of coffee etc. Happy voting!
