They were at Dina Zaman's Book Launch
Met more of them last evening at Dina's launch of her book "I Am Muslim" at the top floor of Pasar Seni's Annexe.
Rocky and I could not make it any earlier due to prior engagements and thought we would have to give it a miss as we had to go to Johor Bahru for another book launch ("The Reluctant Politician - Tun Dr Ismail and His Time" at Danga Bay later this morning).
But, we did promise Dina that we would try to be there and it would be good to meet Malaysian writers, authors, old friends and fellow bloggers (including journobloggers and litbloggers).
It rained so heavily earlier. Traffic was crazy. We got there but the launch was over.
As we walked into the top floor hall (an art gallery), we caught a small group of people in the midst of taking photographs.
I heard a familiar voice in the group. It was Zaharah Othman or Kak Teh (choc-a-blog).
Zaharah is back home from London for some "official work" attending a seminar and doing some editing for a TV programme.
She has also been invited to the book launch in Johor Bahru.
Then we heard some people say: "Come on, liars. Smile."
What a sense of humour, my fellow bloggers.
Among them (besides Zaharah) were Sharon Bakar and Ruby Ahmad.
Brit-born Sharon has been living in Malaysia for more than 20 years. She is a lecturer, writer, book reviewer and a lot of other good things, including a blogger. She has a great blog : Bibliobibuli.
Ruby , a TKC old girl, describes herself as an entrepreneur in architecture. I know that she is active in volunteer work. And she blogs.
Then, they saw Rocky.
"Ah, the liar himself..."
It was a good evening. Met old friend and former NST colleague Aishah Ali (former Sunday Mail/Malay Mail associate editor. Not a blogger yet), other former NST colleagues Sharifah Sakinah (now new mag in town, TELL editor), Wahti Maidin (TELL publisher) and NST journalist Darshini.
Met a very old friend too -- (school mate and family friend), Nur Zuhaira.
By the way, Dina Zaman is also a blogger.
Meanwhile, you may want to check out other liars. May I suggest: Tunku Halim and Eric Forbes.
