budget day tweet

lifted from my embargo oct 24 :) finally ...

budget day was my sligthly busy day. i got into the parliament. security was tight. really tight. so my tweets for that friday was mostly on the budget. i was even tweeting while najib was giving the speech (cheated a little as i have the speech on hand). but still, i have to wait for him to say it before i can start tweeting.
