At first glance, this website looks like a normal online fashion website with products and pictures. But wait till you see the prices. You might think this website isn’t for you.

But take a look closer at the products and read the descriptions when you click it. You’ll surely be hooked on each one.

This is actually not an online shopping website. It’s a website to persuade the public to choose their leaders carefully and go out and vote this 19 November.

The similarity is uncanny

The user interface mimics an online shop where they display some of the luxurious items owned by Malaysian politicians and their actual worth.

It’s actually just to focus on some of the politicians’ wealth to the public and compare it to our struggling wages.

Take a look at some of the descriptions here.

Not just for laughs

However, it’s not just to show the luxurious products, this website also serves as a site to educate the public on their voting rights. What happens if you don’t vote or who should you vote if you want to?

They’ve carefully linked every button and banner of the website for info that you need to know about this upcoming general election.

They’ve gathered information from multiple sources like BFM, WikiImpact & MalaysiaKini and compiled them together under one website for the ease of the public.

People who don’t know what’s going on in our political scene could make use of this website and study them before polling day. You just have to filter through the sarcastic description on the buttons to truly understand what they mean. Or just click anything. You’ll find yourself exploring everything about Malaysian politics and our general elections.

Here are a few examples of the pages they’ve set up for this website.
