Yes, are you a Malaysian Blogger? Put up your hands please? How do you define Malaysians? That we are born Malaysians, with our IC stating Malaysian or what lah? In my opinion, Malaysian is not entirely a good name to be used because when we define Malaysians, we are talking about our masyarakat majmuk. The kind of good, law-abiding, patriotic people who wants the best for our country. I know I cannot always live up to that demand so I prefer to remain just a blogger.
Lately, there are so many this alliance blogger, that alliance blogger until I almost want to start my own Malaysian Bullshit Bloggers Alliance. Then, there was this over-the-top event called Malaysian bla bla bla day wor. Fulamak, did someone died and appoint these people to declare it a Malaysian bla bla day?
But I didn’t want to mention it before the event because I know my blog reach can sometimes ricochetting to things beyond my control. I certainly do not need any massive stupid death threats like what happened to the Penang one. So, I sit silently and what do you know?
Dear Penny from London said :
We wouldn’t know till the government declares a public holiday for us bloggers right? Till then, IMHO, there’s no such thing as a Malaysian Bloggers Day.. There’s no such thing as ‘authority’ in the blogging world so yeah.. noone should ‘create’ such stuff..
Blooody hell.. makes us Malaysian bloggers look lame also ;x
But Penny is not the only who expressed her thoughts on this over-the-top title. I have nothing against the event but I hate it when the title pulled all bloggers in Malaysia into the dragnet. Good or bad, we are all into it.
Jolene too blogged about it.
So shoot me if I hold on to my beliefs that the usage of beautiful girls to make an event all the more enticing is down right degrading to women all over. I guess my opinions donâ€™t really cover the fact that beautiful girls are used to make material possessions all the more enticing(cars+sexy women will always go hand in hand, like it or not.) because thatâ€™s just how things are. I grew up observing a media that has been doing just that. Beer and women, cars and women, gadgets and women.
Frankly, the timing co-incide with the detention of Nat Tan and I did joke with Penny on her comment board:
Wei, wei, one call to BA say got illegal gathering by bloggers, you think what will happen leh? LOL. *slaps forehead and ROLTLMAO*

In case you do not know BA stands for Peaceful Hill.
So, my point is, it is great to have lots of bloggers gathering. But don’t anyone start another over-the-top patriotic title using Malaysians. Because I am a Malaysian too and I don’t need to be associated with titles like those.
