Istana Negara on a Monday morn

Updated, 2 Feb:

Panglima Mahkota Wilayah. Sorry for the late update. Pak Lah and I were less than 3 feet away from each other at one point during the 4-hour ceremony yesterday morning but there was no chance for any exchange whatsoever.

Bernama's report from yesterday:
Three media organisation heads, namely the Director-General of Broadcasting, Datuk Ibrahim Yahaya, Malay Mail editor-in-chief Ahirudin Attan, who is better known as the blogger Rocky Bru and is also protem president of the Alliance of Bloggers (All-Blogs), and Harian Metro group editor Mustapa Omar are among the 27 recipients of the Panglima Mahkota Wilayah (PMW) which carries the title "Datuk".

Original article:
The last time I was invited to the Istana Negara was in Nov 2001 to receive the Kesatria Mangku Negara from the King. I was the Editor of Business Times and Acting Editor of the Malay Mail then. Blogging wasn't in the vocab.

Tomorrow morning, in the same old black Baju Melayu, I'll be making my way to the Balairong Seri once again, this time for the Istiadat Menghadap dan Istiadat Pengurniaan Darjah Kebesaran, Bintang dan Pingat Wilayah Persekutuan.

Updates later, after the news Embargo. In advance, Thank You from the bottom of my heart for the well-wishes.

    So you have been well rewarded as a running dog of BN.

    This how BN is, be prepared to be their running dog and you will be rewarded too.

    Only one thing, mortal awards are no good when you finally meet your maker, there you meet the truth and face the consequences.

    Congratulations, Rocky. I'm sure you deserve it - whatever you are getting. I believe by exercising a
    sense of responsibility in your writing and editing, you have contributed towards the peace and well being of Malaysians in this country. Perhaps more than can be said of Tan Sri Pakiam. Good for you.

    Guessing the award: you already got KMN. Next step is JMN. Or a PSN(?) that carries a Federal Datoship - much more valuable than State Datoships. Or PMN which will entitles you to a Tan Sriship. But Not SMN which carries the title Tun - because Jeanne, Tun Dol's wife, would not like it as it must be limited to a certain number of deserving cases only. (Sorry for the sarcasm, Dato).

    I'm reminded of 1-2 people who went about collecting Datoships etc quite some time ago. One was a politician, the other a civil servant - they went about doing courtesy calls all over the places, fishing for titles. The politician eventually became a Governor and got Tunship. The late Tun Ghazali Shafie pulled his legs on 1-2 occasions by saying "Some people are born great, others have greatness thrust upon them." And the gullible fellow beamed with pride and said, "Thank you, thank you". Sigh.

    Anyway, yours is a Federal award and cannot be fished for. Jeane's case was different - it was part of an exit deal.

    Good for you, sir.

    Congrats Rocky. You truly deserve the award for being an unbiased, report it as-it-is journo and blogger, a rare breed these days. The wornout wanking PRistas and their ilk like God's father must be chewing their toenails in envy. Let them be for they are nothing more than the cocksuckling dogs of a resurrected CPM.

    So by the way, bru...how shall we address you, still Bru, Rocky or Datuk? But knowing you as a humble man, I am sure you care not an iota as to how u are addressed as long as truth prevails.

    A glass of Sake and here is hoping a Tan Sriship in future to crown your achievements. Selamat Berjuang!!!!

    Tahiah Datuk,

    Harap Datuk boleh beri tution percuma kepada pegawai DBKL yg ade lama web utk aduan tapi tak reti nak buka kut sebab tu dah lebih sebulan tiada tindakan.

    Harap Datuk boleh beritahu Menteri tentang banyaknya kedai-kedai kecil pendatang yg dibina kat Bus Stop dan pelanggan letak motor/kereta tutup Bus Stop. Jem jalan dibuatnya. DBKL tu MESTI tegas dengan mengambil tindakan keatas pendatang ini. Nampak macam tutup kedua-dua mate je.

    Harap Datuk boleh kasi DBKL tu buka mata mereka. Jangan tunggu aduan je baru nak bertindak. Mata sendiri kan ade, gunakan dgn sebaiknya.

    May be I am asking too much from a new Datuk cos 'older' Datuk pun dah tertutup mata mereka.

    ..the first and the last time this oldster got invited to the Istana was somewhere in the early 80's..it was for one of the lowest of the ladder's pingat..PPN..Pingat Pangkuan Negara..but I remember the pride..sitting with the mrs with the rest of them..and the black baju melayu that I kept until this day..and the tea in the Istana's garden..and I am sure you must have felt that feeling, too..even tho' its your second time..so, congrats, Dato..for whatever its worth..I am not going to say you deserved it, for all those who received them, deserved them, one way or other..
    p.s..and I also remembered rushing to Cathay Theater after that to catch Star Wars..in my full pingat regalia...:)..cheers, Dato..

    Titles, titles, titles....
    thats what make one great?

    Titles are stepping stones to flexing muscles and bulldozing the way through to other 'riches' , while manipulating the truth to suit one's selfish agenda OR even satisfying the evil ways of the masters who hold tight to the leash that has a 'slave' at the other end.

    Datuk Ahiruddin Atan,

    Sebenarnya berat tanggung jawab kamu bila di kurniakan dengan pangkat.

    Lebih tinggi pangkat, lebih besar harapan orang ramai terhadap pangkat yang kamu dapat.

    Jangan lah di gunakan kedudukan ini semata mata untuk kepentingan diri sendiri tapi gunakan nya sebagai penghubung antara aduan rakyat dan perlaksanaan pemerintah.

    Pangkat ini ada lah amanah rakyat tanpa mengira parti.

  140. Whether you are deserving of award or not I won't comment. I will comment on the fact that national and state honours are supposed to be apolitical. Unfortunately when such honours have been regularly and often used to reward BN government supporters including crony businessmen, they lose their value. Therefore I feel sorry for those who are deserving of such honours. Many people become cynical of the recipients.

    Tahniah Dato Rocky. Saya ingatkan Dato akan memotong rambut dan berimej kemas sewaktu istiadat pengurniaan pingat, tetapi saya sedikt kecewa kerana Dato masih berambut panjang. Saya tahu itu hak individu. Saya tak suka lelaki berambut panjang. Terutama lelaki melayu yang bersubang, kalau adik & anak lelaki saya bersubang, memang saya bagi pelempang.

    Well, now the other side will be running down this jean clad pony tail rocker to bits.

    They have nothing better to do and perhaps may also resort to wearing jeans too!

    But a Datukship is not a passport to glory. The enemies are waiting for just one wrong move and the machine guns will be firing away.

    Congrats, anyway.

    Mesti berdebar-debar menunggu Najib dan Bik Mama disubpoena, tetapi apa alasan logik dari pendakwa dan hakim yang mungkin tidak mengizinkannya, mesti kitapun terkentuk-kentuk PON-PON!
    Lagi tak logik dulu Azizan kata sebanyak 4 kali yang ia tidak disondol kote AI, tapi Hakim 'Hacks' tetap menghukum beliau. Apa daa! Mahkamah kanggaroo 'third class'

    Tahniah Rocky.

    Do you realise that there is increase in PCB(potongan cukai berjadual) starting this month. Pretty significant increase (~25%for me). Apparently this is due to direction from authorities. I thought there no increase in personal tax mentioned in the budget. After service tax, GST tax someore and now...Is this another way to dahulukan rakyat? I dont have good feeling about this. Pls do us a favor and start snooping around. And for those who have better info, pls share.

  159. Datuk Athiruddin,

    Congratulations are in order. Never mind what your detractors may comment, for if you only write what is the truth, even if the truth hurts, as all journalists true to their profession ought to do, then you fully deserve this award. In my mind, you are a true-blue journalist and this award is definitely well deserved.
    Congratulations again!

    Yawn on 56. Being a Datuk? Feh.

    This country still has not fully progressed technologically, given the number of problems with regards to access. And then there are other problems from many other perspectives, all of which you must rectify, as proof of your position.

    Show us that you really wish to create change, and perhaps you may gain support from both sides.

    Otherwise, you will have the eternal contempt of the Guardian of The Ages. And His curse will be the unravelling of this entire country, and of this world.

    We will all be watching you, son of Adam.

    I sincerely think you deserved the Datuk-ship for your pre-2008 self; not because you were against certain UMNO top guy back then, but because of your neutrality.

    post 2008, well, i'm not sure what happened to you. but lets just leave that aside for now..

    on the basis of being your fan pre-2008, I heartily congratulate you :)
