The Malay Mail Relaunch Party

Awmigawddddd!!!! It was such a blast!

Thank you to all my friends who showed up for the Malay Mail Relaunch Party!

Firstly an announcement. One of the many that will come concerning the Malay Mail in the next few months.

Step one. Beginning tomorrow.. kira today la - hari Khamis bersamaan 26 November, The Malay Mail is back in its original form (syukur!) with the tagline of The Paper That Cares and will be FREE!!!

Yes, we are the second paper to go free, but content wise akan bertambah meletop!

Circulation pon meledak gituh ke 100,000.

Dan ini baru step one. Tunggu pengumuman lain.. aku tanak jump the gun, tapi sebagai orang dalam, a media revolution is beginning, and the investors and backers are going all out to prove something we've always known... that The Malay Mail has what it takes.

For those yang berminat nak tau, my column, Hear, Say... will no longer be on Thursdays, but on Tuesdays.

Now that I'm done with the announcements, I want to thank so many people (feeling Grammy acceptance).

First to Marion Caunter and Zainal Alam Kadir - my emcees for the night, thank you so much for going crazy and making sure everyone had fun.

Secondly to Atilia and Ning Baizura. Two of the best entertainers around who got the party started, and kept it going with their fantastic voices.

Thirdly, and as importantly, a big THANK YOU to all my friends who showed up. I love you guys. So many of you, sorry kalao miss any names.

To the Celepets (nama gelaran kumpulan vogue) in Dynas, Sazzy Falak, Yasmin Hani... Vanessa Chong, Anita Sarawak and hubby abang Mahathir (siap kansel ke Singapore for job tuk be there for me... awwwwwww), Mawi dan Ekin, Audi Mok and Nikki, Datin Seri Tiara Jacquelina, Datuk Seri Farid Ridzuan, hot couple Vanidah Imran dan Rashidi Ishak, Nur Aliah aka the other Vee and her hubby to be (hensem dan baik orangnya), Rina Omar, Saerah, Fatimah Abu Bakar and hubby (anak anak, si Nani and gang tak dapat mai sebab kena conjunctivitis!), Dayang Nurfaizah (sedap lagu baru dia, Sayang, yang dia bagi dengar... I like!), Jaclyn Victor (walaopon lambat sebab rushing ada hal)... aduh ramai aku tau aku tak sempat senaraikan semua, but thank you sangat sangat to all these people who came because I so wanted them there and personally invited them.

Juga pada kengkawan dari TV3 dan gak Astro. Love you guys. Kita sambung carut mencarut pasni ek sebab Anugerah Juara Lagu dan Akademi Fantasia 8 da nak start (matilah aku... heh!)

I missed some like Fahrin (tak sempat balik flight ke), Aizat (mana ni???), Aishah Sinclair (tak sempat so tak complete kumpulan Celepets), Daphne Iking (ni sorang agik Celepets tapi MIA), Umie Aida (ada rehearsal pementasan Natrah), Sarimah Ibrahim (tak sempat balik kot pas shooting ujung ujung Biggest Loser Asia), Linda Onn (gi preview Full Moon sebab da janji) Nora Danish (shooting) and Datuk Siti Nurhaliza (walaopon kak Rozie kata try singgah tak nampak pon... sedih aku). Ada other yang tak dapat mai gak... tapi nak wat pe...

All of you who were there, thank you again for supporting the paper, and also personally, me, as a friend.

Dah dah... panjang lak. Dah lah nak tidur sebab letih plus kena bangun awal pagik ni tuk preview filem Santau.
