Thank you anti bowmau,
we have just finished our first session. Very enlightening. Our friends from spoke online remind me of most Malaysian bloggers under Pak Lah, before our evolution. There are 4.8 million bloggers in Indonesia alone, 30 million citizens in the Philippines and another 30 million in Thailand.
A common issue is freedom of information. Internet freedom and the need to organize.

What happened to the anti-establishment bloggerati?

Persona non grata?

Or was a govt presence at this event dependent on their non-presence?

ASEAN is in dire need of knowledgeable and responsible bloggers. This union has a lot of potential to do just that. The ball is now at your feet Datuk to bring out the best in them for the benefit of the whole region. Good luck.

Latok Bru,

Buku skandal seks vip MD MUTALIB lebih menjurus kepada cerita2 seks untuk ransangkan hawa nafsu. tak ada nama vip pun yang tertera. Ini penulis perlu masuk penjara sebab sebar buku seks. Apa haram punya penulis seks.

Best regards,
