A night picnic. The Alliance of Bloggers’ 100 Days (since the General Election) event last night was fun.
YBs Nurul Izzah, Jeff Ooi, Loh Gwo-Burne, Ronnie Liu helped make the evening happen. YB Wee Choo Keong came late due his “kawasan” commitments earlier, but he did keep his word.
YB Mukhriz Mahathir surely made a difference, being the only Barisan Nasional MP present. His response to the interrogation by Gobloking, a Malaysian blogger residing in Madagascar, impressed many.
Raja Petra Kamarudin came to the party straight after nearly three hours at the Sentul police station, where he was interviewed on the Statutory Declaration he made.
Engku Emran, the Suria FM boss, rode in on celebrity wife Erra Fazira’s Harley; we are hoping that both will start blogging soon. Entertainment bloggers who turned up included Vernon and Sultan Muzaffar.
Tony Yew and Yatie’s skills at auction were a revelation; they collected some RM8k that night.
But what’s very different from previous events the All-Blogs had done at the Blog House was the presence of corporate friends and sponsors. Air Asia chairman Aziz Bakar, LG’s product marketing manager Kyung-San Park, and Robert Ho from DiGi were among those present. The event had the support of Scomi, Iskandar, TM, Celcom, TNB, Air Asia, LG, and several other companies and individuals that wished to remain anonymous.
