I don't want to drop names (but if you know me well, then you would know I am only too happy to drop names - except for all those redundant datuks, datins, tan and puan sris ) but I met...
Zorro Unmasked - He really is the real McCoy; even if the only real McCoy I know of was a famous oby/gynae in KL!
Rocky - he really rocks & as I announced to all and sundry (including Rocky)..MAN..he sure can climb into my teepee anytime he wants! :),
Nuraina Samad - is that lady a LADY or what? Class act too!
KL confidential & 2 sens - so SO happy to see such a young literate pair and if anyone can look ditsy but ain't ditsy; and a guy who looks blur but ain't blur..ya..those are the 2!
I felt like such a sham with all these guys since I am more a commentator than a blogger..and use many different nicknames so I can bitch in every bitchy way I know how..and so when Zorro intro me as "Gobloking"..I was like MALU man!
Who the f**k reads me except....MY Family??
Then someone says "from yr blog I thought you were a fat aunty type" meaning I turned out NOT to be what they thought I should look like.
I ain't gonna lie to you here.
I have been told I am the spitting image of GungLi except for legs from here to my armpits, a body to make George Clooney weep and yeah...brains like Einstein too. And yeah.. that person who told me that?
He was blinded..not by my beauty but by all that undiluted Absinthe he was taking. I still adore that skunk.
BUT what struck me about meeting so many MANY bloggers were...
we (see how cleverly I have insinuated myself into being 1?) really do come in all shapes and sizes, all ages and races, all beliefs and disbeliefs..whattamotley bunch man!
I mean the government should be afraid. They should be REALLY afraid!
I couldn't pick out a blogger from a line up because all you need to do is go to the pasar malam and it could be anyone. I MEAN ANYONE out there.
But let's face it. In Malaysia when you say you blog, then people generally assume you are a political blogger.
People (including my family) just don't realize that
There is freedom of speech in this world
There are all types of bloggers
And one can blog about anything they like on any subject they like (or not).
So can you imagine the many crestfallen faces when I say "I blog about my boring life, cooking, and occasionally when I am feeling particularly brill, also on how I don't understand why our Federal Government continues to appoint people with the least relevant experience, the worst set of skills for the job and little or no intellect to do any thinking for important posts.
OOPPSSS...did that just make me a political blogger? WOWZA!
