Wake up slightly earlier yesterday, more thing to get ready as need to wear formal + some make-up. hahah.

Why make up? got company event. As per mention in eLawyer – Exabytes Penang Bloggers & Law Forum 2009. My company (Exabytes) is the exclusive sponsor for this event. My boss is not around in Penang, I’m representating him to give the speech. The organiser requested to wear formal. So, got to be proper. Hahah.

Learn few things in this blogger and law forum.
never made statement which is straight to the point.
- twist your sentense or make it into question style.
- let your reader to interpret or imagine on their own so that you do not invite trouble to yourself
- when you receive any request to remove something from your blog, proceed to remove it to avoid court case
- any simple court case will cost you minimum 30k to 50k minimum of “RM” (Real Money).
- 1 + 1 will nto definately equal to 2 in law.

Eddie has given us a joke before the end of the forum:-

“A” is having a court case and is searching for a lawyer to assist him in his case. He went to first lawyer and ask the first lawyer 1 question.
A: 10 + 10 equal how much?
Lawyer 1: 20
A: TQ (and walk away from lawyer 1′s office)

A went to second lawyer.
A:10 + 10 equal how much?
Lawyer 2: (close the door) How much you want the answer to be?
A: deal, you will be my lawyer.

Hope you enjoy this joke as well.

Are you a blogger?

If you are not a blogger, do you read some one else’s blog?

Do you sometime feel like some of the blogger are talking too much or talking on some sensitive topic? Do blogger really allowed to talk anything they want? No law controlling them? Have you ever think of what is the limitation of a bogger when they are writing their blog?

Ops, sound like I have got a lot of question to ask today. In fact, all these question has been in my mind for quite a long time but I did not really go dig out the answer.

Good news for all the blogger in Penang or friends from Northern Malaysia. Exabytes is now working together with eLawyer in organizing Bloggers & Law Forum 2009  in Penang.


You will now have a chance to learn what  a blogger can write and what they should not write. I will be attending this forum on this Saturday (27-Jun-09) in USM.

I have get ready the map for your reference here.


See you people there.

Will share more after the forum. Stay tuned.
