Sibu, is not a big and well-known town in the context of this country, but recently because of the by-election, almost everyday you can see Sibu on tv! Besides that, all political big names either from ruling parties as well as opposition parties are blooming into this town since the nomination day (8th May). It is predicted that this phenomenon will continue until the pooling day which is scheduled on 16th of May! Therefore if you wish to visit Sibu in this period of time, please be reminded that all hotels, no matter big or small, expensive or cheap, new or old... all had been fully booked!

Campaigns and political talks from both parties had been started since last night, so it is a busy week for Sibu people. Last night I attended the first political talk by Pakatan Rakyat at Butterfly Park of Sibu. It was really a nice experience as you can meet opposition heavyweight political idols such as Lim Kit Siang, Lim Guan Eng, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Teresa Kok and so on in person!
