Don't Blog, Then Do What?

Read an article yesterday in The Star Two about the Perils of Blogging whereby they interviewed a few bloggers (one of them, Michael Ooi) and made references to some others. If you don’t wanna to be fried or land in hot soup, don’t blog about your boss, your work and workmates, your MIL, your neighbour’s wife, religion, race, all the politikus, bla, bla, bla.. and the list can only get longer.

What can I blog about then? Nyonya and nyonya and more nyonya? Nah! Can’t just bore to death those who pop by with some absurd rants day-in and day-out, right? So I consulted my younger boy who incidentally was engrossed in his on-line game, on what he thought is safe for me to blog about. The conversation went like this :-

Me : Aiyoh, you saw this article ah? Sei ler, dis kenot, that kenot. What to blog then?

Son : **whistling a tune and nodding/bobbing his head to the beat of some music**

Me : Eh... saw this or not?

Son : **continued with his whistling….. ****

Me : Wei, you listening to what I’m saying or not?

Son : Ya. **continued with the annoying whisssstle…**

Me : Say something la. Tell me ler, gimme a topic to blog la.

Son : Aiyaaah…., no topic then don’t blog la.

Me : Kenot, that wan my favourite past-time. Don’t blog then do what?

Son : Play DOTA. (on-line game)

Me : !!!!!!!!!.....

Watch WLT like those boring housewives with nothing much to do (and probably nothing up there...can't imagine what's so nice about those sob-sob serials)! Not our nyonyapenang! Blog on everyday things, social issues (not political),songs, movies... Maybe u can check the lyrics for the song "Hate Me" by Blue Ocotber and blog on that. I requested for it on the air, the DJ got put off...and a listener said it's a "scary" song!

the blog is like wild fire. stupid of those who try to control it. in lil dot, gamen supports a few prominent bloggers and give them an allowance to write what the gahmen want them to write. they gwai2 write as they are paid and ppl actually read their official blog. you can read them in www.stomp.com.sg

LOL..blog bout playing games hahaha...snap his pics and post it up :P
suituapui,
never enjoyed those serials.
as for that song, i'll check it out first. you into song requests and dedications? remember to dedicate to us all, OK? ;)

kenny,
i prefer to make real noise with senduk kha bok-keng (ladle banging on pots). hahaha.....
seefei: that stomp thing is ok lah, I think they just do it to catch some news. but hor, i think an official body that maintains a blog is very different from an individual/group who blogs.

anti-shake feature is good. Too bad my digicams don't have that feature, cos I bought them prior to the introduction of anti-shake feature in the market :)
