At Bagan which is located on the mainland, around 3,000 people thronged a car park to attend ceramah which was also joined by both Anwar and Guan Eng.
In the midst of a downpour, the small covered makeshift stage almost collapsed when Anwar got on it, as a number of people were already taking shelter there from the heavy rain.
To applause from the crowd, Anwar said he was there as he supports Lim to be the next Bagan Member of Parliament. His ceramah topics covered the rising petrol price to corruption by the powers-that-be.
Lim, who arrived at about 11.10pm addressed the crowd for close to an hour despite a strained voice cause by a week of intense campaigning.
Still in an upbeat mood after the earlier grand ceramah at the college, he told the crowd of the latest news that state executive committee member Teng Chang Yeow was tipped to be the next chief minister. Lim talked about the shortage of Chinese schools nationwide among other topics others.
He was mobbed by supporters after the ceramah clamouring for his autograph.
Hindu Rights Action Force (Hindraf) leader T Vasantha Kumar's wife, K Vickneswary, made a brief appearance during Lim's speech to highlight the plea of her husband who is being held under the Internal Security Act (ISA).
'I appeal to whatever ruling party that�s going to be in Malaysia to release the five (Hindraf) ISA detainees and we will definitely support the party which can do that,' she said with emotion.
'I have two girls, who are five and three years old. I told them their father is in hospital, I don�t know how to explain to them. They are looking forward to their father (to come home),' she added.
Vickneswary said she stopped by Penang last night on her way to visit her husband at the Kamunting detention camp in Taiping, Perak.
