Malay Mail Cyberspot

Thank you Malay Mail


One can imagine recieving an email from a prestigous newspaper in the form of Malay Mail. I was informed by Sheila Rahman informing me of their intention to pick my thoughts for their next publication. That they did and I could not believe I was given full airtime (one full page!). Yikes - I could write ten pages of article to our local newspapers here and they would cut that to half a page and most of the speeches never made it through the local papers. Malay Mail means it when they say it's a paper for 'Your Voice'. As this is also my first encounter with Cyberspot I completed the interview questionnaires without really thinking twice ~ the true Nadai Nama style. I gave them the freedom to edit it and I would have been happy if I was given half the page. But when my brother called the next day to inform me that the article is up featuring my Grandma's Merdeka toast photo - It contained almost all that I had replied. I have to admit these people are fast. Thanks Sheila and thanks Gabey for the soft copy which I have put below.

Thanks for those messages, emails and smses also people. Thanks Kenny for your kind email :) ~ Those of you asking me to elaborate on that Thoughts on Compatibility - that will be my next blog post :) Cheers! The article is also available at Malay Mail link here.
