Maintaining a community and service centre as well as running an election campaign is a relatively expensive affair, especially when compared against the mighty machinery of Barisan Nasional. I will blog on how much it'll cost us soon enough. But in the mean time, your support is crucial towards helping the DAP win in Petaling Jaya (which comprises of 2 parliamentary seat, 5 state seats, not all of which are/will be contested by DAP). Let the voters in PJ take the lead in bring about the winds of change for the nation!

These dinners are organised by DAP Damansara and DAP PJ Action Team.

Why not the other way round? You attend the DAP dinner and donate money, then Tony Pua be a candidate for Subang Jaya.

Tony should feel welcomed by your residents before making a decision :)

Poor pensioner DAP supporter said...

I want to attend DAP dinner and contribute, but I am just a poor pensioner, strong in spirit but poor in income. If I am rich I will donate to DAP. As I understand it Tony is a millionaire and stronger financially than a poor pensioner like me. Of course I do support strongly DAP and follow closely the development by DAP and Tony Pua

Not all can be like Bruce Wayne aka Batman as in Tony Pua.

Nevertheless it is welcome to have such an intellectual profile to bring us better insight into happenings of the society through another dimension.

The ugly truth about the BN (Barisan Nazy) party:

外劳并非导致我国贫穷日愈恶化的最大祸首,而是一些国家领袖通过新经济政策滥权贪污,导致贫穷问题无法获得解决。

“我国最大的罪犯就是我们的人民代表,以及国家管理层。这是因为人民代表只是在乎个人利益,根本没有时间来履行人民对他的委托。”

我曾询问一些没有政治背景的朋友,他们的家人是否会在来届大选中投票给国阵,结果显示80%的人会把票投给反对党.

To save this countrym, we must vote for the opposition!!!

Thank you.

I have just informed some of my friends abt this dinner. Hope will get some support. Talking is a way to influent and pursuade other people but no-action-talk-only is not welcomed. Before acting in coming election, act now to support this fund raising activity. Long life democracy!

DAP deserves the support of every Malaysian. It is the only party that has got the guts to stare Umno racists and cheats down the face. It is the only party that dares to expose Umno for what it is - a bunch of banana republic racists and jingoistic extremists. It is the only party that dares to expose Umno chicanery. It is the only party Umno respects. It is the only party that continues to highlight Umno lies despite continual threats from the state machinery. It is the only party worth supporting. I urge Malays to wake up and desert Umno, a corrupt party which is not averse to using Gestapo tactics to eliminate the opposition.

Is this dinner for family? Should I bring my 5 years old son? He will be running around, or screaming, and I afraid it is not appropriate. Please advise. :-)

Kids are certainly welcome, I'm more concerned for the parents than about kids screaming ;)
