I doubt anybody remembers or really cared but if you've read my other blog (which I know is much more interesting when I fill it with anti-Bruno Mars rants), I have been to a number of political fundraisers and I did volunteer work for former Liberal candidate Gladys Liu during her campaign a few years ago.
Yep. Pumping helium balloons. Handing out flyers. Going around tables selling raffle tickets. Not doing exam revision and getting a crappish score for my Chinese sac.
T'was the lyf.
Experience is always a positive thing though. Yes, it actually is. We all need to
|With Melbourne City Councillor and former |
President of the Chinese Association of Victoria, Ken Ong,
who only seemed to register any sort of interest in making
conversation with me after I told him I studied arts and law
at Monash Uni. He was all like "my son does the same course
and is in your year." Something about how I should know him
because his son is so heavily involved with club activities etc.
|With the star of the night, Emanuele Cicchiello, who is|
the Liberal candidate for Bruce. He went to MWSC and
was a teacher before becoming a principal and now a pollie.
Seems like a very nice guy.
But can a nice guy be a good politician?
A trenchant question one must consider before September 14.
|With the President of the Legislative Council and|
State Member for Eastern Metropolitan Region,
Bruce Atkinson. Conversation with him was extremely awks.
I think I just need to practice being more laidback, Aussie style.
Get an Australian accent. Which REMINDS ME, Reuben watched
the St Kilda FF video and said I HAD A LISP.
A LISP. I know I can't pronounce 'th' but it's not as bad as an
actual freaking lisp.
|With someone all of you Asians living in Box Hill should recognise|
at once - he's your rep Robert Clark and the Attorney General.
He went to St Alban's High School and then graduated from University High.
I found it quite lovely that two of the most important people in the
room both received public school educations.
|Liberal for Hotham, Fazal Cader, who was really enthusiastic|
about doing an interview with me.
And... a guy in a Qing Dynasty hat.
Or something. He might have been someone important.
