It's been a full 24 hours since the counting of the ballots started for the 2004 Presidential Elections in the Philippines. I haven't had the chance of getting the latest tally from the web because our friggin' internet connection in the office is all screwed up. But before I left home, the picture wasn't looking rosy. FPJ was ahead in ABS-CBN's unofficial quick count. They're saying that their quick count almost always reflect the real count, so go figure. We're in for a turbulent six years.
