On Facebook, local singer Kit Teo posted a photo of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) flag in front of his house with the caption: "On polling day, I put this flag in front of my house. My family told me not to play around as this was a sensitive issue.

"I told them it is OK because we need hope. Let's display this flag even if we lose! Chinese New Year is coming anyway and red is beautiful. The red (referring to the PH flag) looks even more beautiful now."

Actor Steve Yap also said he felt blessed now that Malaysia is under Anwar's leadership.
