Received a pleasant surprise in the mail. The message says it all (edited for flow and privacy):

Hello fine folks at SABM,

My name is Andrew and I am a proud Malaysian in my second year of undergrad... While I realize that I may have not been quick enough to respond to the closing of voters registration 3/4 days ago, I thought this message was still relevant, especially to those who have already registered.

It is a short, two minute video of us (a few other Malaysians...) speaking straight in to the fourth wall. I was hoping it would be merely part of a series of videos that will sort to reach these ends.

On your website it is stated that the precondition for submitting content/stories is that..."It must enrich the spirit of One People, One Nation... We'll gladly take over from there."

Here is a link to the video where a short description is attached:


I was hoping that you would share it. Please, if you get the chance, look at it and let me know what you think. Personally, my 21st birthday still eludes me so I am ineligible to vote, but I think one's political power should be taken a lot more seriously.


Cheers! And thank you so much for your patience.


Andrew Tan



Thanks for the timely message, Andrew. And come back soon!

So enlivening this message because these five caring youngsters have appealed and the message goes to heart, immediately.They know the art of sharing in a very appealing style.

What is rewarding is their Spirit....taking time to voice their message with so much force, concern and goodwill.

Thank you, you five beautiful people.You have set a fine example. Wish I could learn more, from YOU.
