im running for campus election

Good morning Kampar. Good morning Penang. Good morning UTAR. Good morning world.

What a cold morning. You can fell the chilliness till your bone.

By the way, from the title of this post, I think you already know what is the content.

Yes, me, I, saya, wo is running for campus election. I’m standing for the post of Chairman. I’m not alone. There are another for four people in my team. I will post their names and posts in another post.

EMPOWER! That’s the name of my group. This is it. The time is now. This is the time where the students should arise and make themselves heard. We have enough of ‘no’ from the management. We are fed up facing the same problems over and over again and there’s still no solution. Empower is a not just a group for campus election. It’s more than that. It’s a student movement. We’ll turn students complains into actions. Students must know how and where to articulate their rights and power. This is a new beginning for students in UTAR.

So yes basically I am a so-called politician now. I am a now public figure in my university. Things are still the same except that you have to really take care of the way you present yourself in the public. But Oh Chin Eng will still be Oh Chin Eng.

For the past 2 weeks, me and my teammates and helpers have been cracking out our head, burning midnight oil to prepare for this campus election.

This campus election has occupied most of my time. I personally have less time to read online news. I don’t even have a proper time to eat, to bath, to poopoo, to sleep and for other activities. I didn’t update my blogs. I seldom chat with my friends. Less time on FB. And the most amazing thing I did is I have abandon my wife, the camera. =p

Now I can feel the life of the political leaders. It’s tough. There was once I slept at 5am n woke up at 7.30am. ahha. Im killing myself I know. Health will deteriorate a bit. But nvm la. it’s all worth it la.

All the best for my team and the helpers, volunteers, supporters and friends.
