AH, FIRDAUS! So, the blogger behind Apanama is Firdaus Abduallh, a seasoned journo who left the New Straits Times recently to be on his own. The official story is Firdaus has "taken over" Apanama, one of the blogs that contributed towards the political tsunami in 2008, i.e. short-living Abdullah Ahamad Badawi's tenure as PM. Any which way, congrats Firdaus (and the former owner of Apanama), blogosphere is the richer for this move.
Firdaus also runs Signboard and tweets with @firdyfire.
