PM concedes BN lost online war during polls
By : Newsdesk
KUALA LUMPUR, Tues:
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Barisan Nasional lost the online war to win votes in the March 8 general election.
“We didn’t think it was important. It was a serious misjudgement,” he said at the opening of Invest Malaysia, an investment conference.
Last year, the country had more than 13.5 million Internet users, or just under one in two Malaysians. This was a third more than in 2005, when there were 10 million users.

There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
