Myself, Hajjah Puteri Kamaliah Megat Abu Bakar @ Kata Kama, Tuan Haji Maarof Kassim @ Once a Sdarian and our newly registered member Tuan ACP Osman Abu Bakar (Rtd) @ Obee-Mancuso were among the early birds at the event which was held at the Seri Pacific Hotel's Ballroom besides PWTC, KL.

Tuan Osman is the brother of our nation's football heroes, Allahyarham Isa Bakar and Penang State's former skipper Ali Bakar. He is an avid Facebooker and just started blogging recently on my request. He has loads of stories to tell having served in our nation's Royal Malaysian Police Force and traveled to various countries in his line of duty.

Hajjah Puteri Kamaliah Megat Abu Bakar is a former NST Journalist. Her style of writing is very witty and straight from her heart. She claims to now being a 'Makcik Blogger'. Hehehehe.

Tuan Haji Maarof Kassim is a government retiree and hails from Seremban. He wrote about the event here at his blog. You can check out what he has to share there.

As I said earlier, we were among the early birds and the ballroom wasn't that full when we arrived. Later on, it was filled to the brim and the media turned out in full force. Pity that the event wasn't broadcasted live to the entire nation. Such an important explanation by the EC @ SPR should have been telecast live. 

It concerns the safety and wellbeing of the nation with regard to the upcoming massive protest being planned by the rabblerousers of this country under pretext of marching to demand a cleaner election?

I think that our election process is clean enough. If it was otherwise, the Opposition Pact wouldn't have managed to take over 5 states of the Malaysian Peninsular! Only problem causing ingrates would claim that our EC is still tainted when they are lording it over the 4 states now under their rule.

I asked the EC Deputy Chairman as to why the Opposition Pact are allowed to call themselves as the 'Pakatan Rakyat' when in actuality not the entire civilian population have made a pact to be with the Opposition?

He answered that the Opposition have yet to apply to register their 'loose coalition' thus the authorities can't do nothing much to stop them.

Talk about giving a misleading picture to the world at large where such usage of the words 'Pakatan Rakyat' gives a false notion that the entire citizens of Malaysia are behind these rabblerousers! 

If it was so, they would be running ~ or ruining the country by now! Na'uzubillahi min zalik! God Forbid!

I will be writing a brief summary about what took place during the event and share with you more in the next article.

Insya Allah.
