Be a balanced blogger, Dr M said.

I MADE a dash to the Mid-Valley yesterday to see top blogger Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad signing his blogging book at the MPH boook store. It was a very big turnout. I squeezed in to take some pictures, hoping that the pictures can be a new feature in my blog. It took me several days to learn the trick, but I hope it's worth it. Dr M was accompanied by his wife, Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali. The Tun's other blogger in the family, Marina, was also present, with her daughter. The book store owners had to limit those wanting to get Dr M's personally-autographed book to 100. It was standing room only at the book-signing ceremony. Dr M had time to answer only four questions, with a reminder from the book's publisher, Datuk A Kadir Jasin, that questions were confined to those about writing only. No political questions allowed, AKJ said. Responding to one of the questions, Dr M said writing blogs called for a balanced and responsible approach. Same as in the traditional media, he said.

Be a 'balanced' blogger.
Be a dacing blogger then.
It is BN then.

Syabas Datuk ! Glad you learnt the trick of adding photos to your blog !

Actually, I never missed or did not realize you never had photos before - you managed to create visuals in our mind through your impeccable writing !

Cheers and congrats once again.
