It was kinda insane. Blog House in Damansara Heights played host to the 100 Days with the Yang Berkhidmats event, which doubled up as a fundraiser night for the fledgling organisation called All Blogs.
Since Blog House set up, it has apparently done some good for the posh neighbourhood. Crime rates went down, citizens there feel safer, simply because of the increased police patrols in the area. Heh Heh!
Last night saw the get together of quite a number on newsmakers in that not so little house, and many, many Netizens.
I’ll let the pictures speak some.
More pics by the ubiquitous Minaq Jinggo at his photo blog.
The YBs? Mukhriz Mahathir (Jerlun), Jeff Ooi (Jelutong), Loh Gwo Burne (Kelana Jaya), Wee Choo Keong (Wangsa Maju), Nurul Izzah Anwar (Lembah Pantai) and Selangor State Assemblyman Ronnie Liu.
The corporates contributed. Heheh! This was kinda funny. This same time last year, bloggers were not very nice words to say, and the socio political bloggers were satan incarnate.
Post March 8, I’m afraid we have all become rather mainstream. Boring, isn’t it, this new-found, rather dubious respectability. Respectable enough that the folks from LG, Air Asia, Scomi, Celcom wanted to join. Air Asia’s Aziz Bakar turned up for a mock check moment and I believe he stayed food and some interesting conversation.
Still the usual suspects were there last night and the food was pretty good. RPK of Malaysia Today had an afternoon date at the Sentul Police Station but still turned up with his lovely wifey Marina.
Marina Mahathir turned up as a blogger while her brother Mukhriz was there as a YB, with the “bodyguards” Big Dog and A Voice. Erra Fazira turned up with her AMP husband as part of the corporate support.
The camera-shy Ewoon was there. So was a boisterous Harris and his more subdued sidekick Helen Ang, Peace Hill permanent representative to Blogosphere Shar 101, pirate turned landlubbler Ancient Mariner, A little Taffer, Danny the Kerp, Yati and Vijay of KL Confidential, Uncle Ron of Kuda Kepang, the incorrigible TV Smith, Gus Gan the Fisherman of Taman Desa, Li’l Crankshaft, and also the lovely lady from Madagascar, Gobloking. Tony Yew was as usual, the keeper of the Royal Seal and also Public Order; Nuraina Samad came from Jalan Sudin. Also seen in the thick of action was Mob 1900, Shanghai Fish, Wattahack, LuLu and the Malay Male.
