It Sure Aint Over Yet!
It was sometime around 9.30pm on Tuesday January 16, at the National Press Club (Jalan Tangsi, Kuala Lumpur) that Ahirudin Attan was served "his papers" -- notice by the lawyers representing NST, its deputy chairman Kalimullah Hassan, CEO Syed Faisal, GEIC Hishamudin Aun and former GE Brenden Pereira -- that an injunction would be taken against him and that he was going to be sued for libel.
Ahirudin or Rocky, as we all know him, was told an hour earlier (while he was having dinner at BSC) that someone from a law firm was waiting for him.
In fact this someone had been waiting since 6pm for Rocky to make an appearance at the NPC.
Rocky who is the NPC president, arrived at the club about 9.15pm, He walked coolly into the club, signed his name (as members are required to do), approached the guy, shook his hands and asked whether he was there to give him something.
The young man seemed nervous as he handed to Rocky an envelope and about a foot-high of five very thick documents.
"So which one is for me?", asked Rocky.
"Semua ni, bang," said the man, apologetically.
"Wow, ni semua. saya ingat satu untuk saya, yang lain untuk orang lain," Rocky said, shaking his head, smiling.
People at the club broke into laughter not because it was funny, although in a way it was. But it was that kind of laughter that you would make for want of anything better to say.
Rocky took the letter, signed something and looked closely at the pile of documents, still shaking his head and smiling.
"Terima kasih-lah. Lama tunggu?", he asked the young man, who was by now smiling although nervously, and appeared to be all too relieved to have got it over with.
He said he had been looking for Rocky since Sunday at Austin Chase in BSC but Rocky was nowhere to be seen or found. He was then told to go to Rocky's other hang-out - the NPC.
He was glad to have found Rocky. Not only because he had done his job but that he had finally met the man himself.
"Saya ikut blog abang," he said, as he stood up to leave.
Well, Rocky..... just about more than half a million others too.
If you "follow" his blog. Then, my friends, you can and should walk with him. And not only him but also with Jeff Ooi and Sheih.
(NOTE: Sheih Kickdefella has a real cool poster dedicated to Rocky today. Makes a real cool car sticker too)
