Next hearing, April 2

Amended claims. Last Friday, the lawyers for the plaintiffs (NSTP and 4 others) submitted amendments to their original writ of summons that was served to me last month. Given the long weekend (Saturday, Sunday and followed by the two days off in lieu of the Chinese New Year), my lawyer Edmund Bon and I felt we needed more time to study the amended claims.
Today's hearing was to hear my application to strike out the plaintiffs' lawsuit.
As the claims have just been amended, we sought for an adjournment. The Judge granted it and set April 2 to hear my application to strike out their suit based on the amended claims.

Some 50 bloggers and friends turned up at Wisma Denmark this afternoon to wish me well. We cut a birthday cake brought by Nuraina A. Samad and Marina Mahathir. Datuk Ron and Gen M bought tea and Maria served more than 20 plates of her special mi rebus brunch at Kafe-Four-teen in PJ to us bloggers. What A Lulu baked us cookies and some of us met Clark Gable, Walski, Rajahram, Mr Nobody, Tony Pua, June x2, Wielmaja, Lame Basket, and blogger-in-waiting and veteran journo Uncle Saad Hashim for for the first time.
The usual suspects were there. My thanks to all.

But before April 2 there's March 6, a date to walk with Jeff Ooi.

    Cheers.

  2. Bro, I think 20 mangkuk of mee rebus is not correct. Big Guy who sits next to me, eats two and half plate. He was already there when I arrived. I had two for myself.

  10. Hey Rocky,

    While I was not able to be there with you guys today, my spirit is with you. I was collecting my new IC at the NR dept today but they made a silly careless mistake which needed to be corrected. I was not smiling at all. If only these gomen chaps pay more attention to what they do, there would be less simple careless errors which waste time & resources and lower all round productvity, damn. Hence, I missed your hearing today and the bloggers party.

    But my good buddy was there who met a few of you bloggers. You've met him at a few receptiions including drinks at the club. He was so excited and regaled us about the afternoon quickie, the party at the canteen, the brief thunderous downpour ( good feng shui, yes, cleans the air somewhat? ), the camaraderie and companionship among people with a clear sense of purpose, the light-hearted banter despite the seriousness of the key issues affecting our future as free living and independent Malaysians with rights and privileges enshrined in the laws of the land and the constitution.

    Well, well, another postponement? A continuing amendment to their claims? Allowable in law? Keep changing the rules of the game as it progresses, and when they anticipate a potential loss? Fair? Justice? Credible? Stretching your resources? Toying?
    Dragging?

    Keep up the spirit, and persevere. We are with you. Many people are with you. Many elegant silent majority are following yours and Jeff's cases.

    Meanwhile, we wait for more exposes about the weaknesses and abuse of this impaired government led by the mother of all ulamas who subscribes to or supports the mat skodengs of islam hadhari, among the latest fiascos which is making Malaysia a global laughing stock during its visit Malaysia year 2007 campaign.

    Cheers, man, and power to you and all bloggers united team.

    Bro,
    The Mee Rebus ok. The Teh Tarik is superb. But then again...its not the Mee Rebus nor Teh tarik that brings me there...its pure Friendship.

    United as Friends. Rain or shine. With or without it, I will still be there. Its the number game that bring in the inner strenght.

    Stay strong and focus always, bro.

    John Labu.

    Rocky,

    Jeff's court thingy on March 6 is conveniently a day before you relinquish the NPC Presidency. Coincidence or a sign?

  15. Rocky,
    Glad to have met you and the rest of the Bloggers United yesterday.
    I thought of meeting the whole group at the foyer before the hearing and hence arrived about two. Had to find my way to the courtroom from the enquiry desk downstairs.
    I was with NTV7, Star, AP and the other media people before Mr. Malik Sarwar came and told us the case may be postponed because of late amendment submissions by the defence.
    Subsequently I met Rocky and JeffOoi and wished them well.
    After the hearing Mr.Edward Bon confirmed the new date to be 2nd April and said they had to decide whether to proceed with the strike-off application after studying the amendments.
    Finally on my way down to the cafe, I caught up with Stephen, Bernard, Marina and Nuraina.
    At the party, I met a host of bloggers and made so many friends and found the entire get-together wonderful. Imagine meeting members through the Blogs and consolidating friendship in person !
    Thank you all, not forgetting Microsoft and Google for having made it possible.

  16. I was there ! Had to enquire the service desk to know which floor.

    However, I left right after the interview. I did not go into the cafe.

    Did not realise that there are as many as 50 bloggers. If that's true, then it's good.

  19. Salam to Rocky and all.

    My support from Jebatville. Unable to be in person but with united team in spirit/semangat.
    Seems they 'ubah tiang gol' against you. That might be a habit they learned from the 'saksi tilam' episode.

    All the best to you and Jeff

  20. Rocky - It was a great pleasure, not to mention honor, to have met you finally.

    (And in my infernal laziness, the same goes to the other folks I met who happen to be reading this).

    I managed to capture the cake-cutting ceremony, by the way, which can be viewed here. I will update the post to include links to other sites with pix.

    Keep on fighting the good fight!

  23. Dear Ronin Samurai Rocky,

    Am sorry that i didnot stay for the whole day...got to cari makan ma!!

    It was a pleasant mee rebus no doubt about it.The place ,like you describe it ,is an oasis of sort....i was having meerebus on hot afternoon sun and yet the i didnt feel the heat.

    It was the meerebus ,the oasis and the company i was with that made it to be a very memorable day.

    I shall write about it in my blog .

    The meeting with bloggers were great but someone aptly said it ,when asked by the reporter why are we so passionate about
    this,"I might not agree with everything to what said by Rocky,Jeff or anyone for that matter,but they deserve the right to say what they think as right, and lets everyone has the right to form his or her own opinion on that matter"

    Not much to ask ,said I,in so caleed a democratic country of ours....

    I sincerely would support it as I feel the climate is such that every politician treat the rakyat like DUNGU s ,and expected everyone to take hook ,line and sinker to evrything dished out.

    Good Luck To You Bro Rocky and Jeff
