Blog successfully revived!

This afternoon the good news came that my blog been successfully revived! That’s why this happy news.

I am so relieved because a lot of work has gone into this blog and there’s so much information here. What’s even more crucial is the next session of Parliament is just round the corner and references to old postings are necessary.

My congratulations to the team that made this possible. What an achievement! A million thanks guys — and ‘nerd’! Certainly owe you guys more than one! ;-)

Now the only thing to do is ensure the postings, pictures, comments and links are where they should be. And backup, backup, backup. I cannot over-emphasize this point enough.

Have a good day, all. Cheers!

Justice for TBH-2! — Protest against The Innocent Man in Pandamaran, Klang!

About 10.30 a.m. this morning (Sunday, 19 September 2010) at Pandamaran, Klang there was a public protest by local residents and supporters of Tee Boon Hock clamouring for Ronnie Liu to resign! The ‘innocent man’ is more trouble than a boon to the rakyat of Pandamaran it seems. The placards speak for themselves.

Is it ominous or what? A picture (below) was found submerged in a puddle of water among dirt. Perhaps it is foretelling the sign of a man drowning or simply it is “Good riddance to pure rubbish!”
