So, that looks like a major round the country tour within a short 2 weeks ;). After that, I'll be busy with the by-elections campaigning in Machap, probably my maiden rally speech there, plus plenty of practice for my Mandarin as well as Malay ;). I'll also be making a trip to Kuching, Sarawak on the 21st April share views and ideas with our DAP leaders and comrades there.
Also, as I've mentioned previously, I'll do my best to start recording these talks so that I can share them here on this site.
So, if you are at any of these places, rememer to say hi! ;)
