TO all Mak Cik Bloggers

UPDATE: For a side-splitting, feet thumping review of MAK CIK BLOGGERS - THE MOVIE (WE WILL, WE WILL BLOG YOU!) REVIEW BY ADIEJIN PRODUCTIONS, PLS, I BEG YOU, GO TO AdieJin
and also dont forget to read Mak Andeh
I garantee you, lauk di dapur mesti hangit, anak akan kelaparan - and we are still auditioning for walk on parts!
....now please read on!
When I entered the world of blogging, I was apprehensive about it. In spite of the three easy steps it said on how to start a blog, I was making all sorts of silly mistakes. I was also apprehensive about the reaction....what if no one reads me, what if I syiok sendiri..hehe. Anyway, I had long been a silent reader and by then, I had acquired a list of bloggers whose nicks are so familiar – Pok Ku, Pak Adib, Mok Cik Nab, Atok – its like having a ready made family online. And once you are welcomed by Pok Ku...hey, that is like being introduced by Ed Sullivan of the Bloggers’ World lah..ya dok, Pok Ku?

Anyway, like I said, I am pleased that I can now put pictures without messing up the page, help maknenek to put up banners. Was touched that bloggers were giving me their passwords to put up banners and links for them...hahaha – (sorry, I just remembered some unmentionable usernames..hehehe, sorry, again!) And I suppose, the other biggest achievement was the Sentraal Station, thanks to another Mak Cik Blogger, AuntyN who came up with the idea!


Alhamdulillah, its been a really good and positive network and if not for the camaraderie here, I would have packed up my ladders and gone elsewhere! Its been, to say the least, the most humbling experience reading some blogs – to read that some people have gone through what you only have in your nightmares. And you give each other support – if there’s nothing nice to say – walk away.


And there are very informative ones too - ones you only get with age and experience (When you get to our age, this is how you start marketing yourself!)

Have learnt a lot from Mak Cik Sharon, laughed with Mak cik Lilian (5xMom) and really enjoy Mak Cik Lydia's friendship...Of course those I mentioned here are all sewaktu dengan Kak Teh lah! Or, I suspect, younger!

I am still in awe reading the achievements of young bloggers here. You go reading their meme'd account and your jaws dropped. But I have made friends with many young ones who have generously shared with me their knowledge. Thanks ijun, nana and many more.

Now back to Mak Cik Bloggers. Am sorry I caused a stir last Sunday morning. But its true. We Mak Cik Bloggers, blur and gomen and those who rawk and the one by the pantai, yang pencen, and those like me still carrying rucksacks back to school – we are all ageless in this cyber world and will remain so ( until we meet up and examine and compare wrinkles!)

We have learnt so much from each other, lent each other cyber shoulder pads to cry on and laughed at many a joke..that helped us make our day livelier! And we are into
PO - sitive blogging *wink*

Let me share you this story. Two weeks ago, on a Saturday morning, I was pulling my bag full of books to the library when I saw two Malaysian girls taking photographs in front of the university. I stopped to say salam and introduced myself as I am wont to do when meeting fellow Malaysians. The moment I mentioned my name, one of them screamed, “Kak Tehhhhh” and had my fifteen minutes of fame, while they took photographs of me bleary eyed and all, from all angles and in all manner of posing! Thanks, E and M, you made my day! Tersengeh sepanjang hari!

And not only that my dear Mak Ciks...they read you too and I believe I am bringing back a little something for you from your fans in Edinburgh!

Hmm, am not supposed to blog today..so I will end here and say :

MAK CIK BLOGGERS BOLEH!!!!!

'lent each other cyber shoulder pads to cry on ' :I really like this cause its so true.

AS our hectic lifes becomes much more crazier by the day, it is so nice to know that there are so many people who care just at the click of a button. KT, you have built an amazing circle of LOVE.

AuntyN said...

Thank you, thank you Kak Teh *blush, blush pasai nama naik kat entry Kak Teh*.

Kak Teh bila nak buat meeting untuk examine wrinkle tu? Sebab saya ingat nak pi cucuk Vit C, botox or Ozone ka nak bagi tak nampak wrinkle tu hehehehe.

U caused a PO-sitve stir amongst us KakTeh. It was a nice feeling.

Mrs Amd said...

Way to go Mak Cik bloggers . Being one of the blog hops especially to the sentral station , you all really make my day .
Teringin nak jumpa Kak Teh , mesti excited giler.

Lydia Teh said...

KT, From one makcik to another, keep blogging! (Now everyone wants to own up to being makcik, if at the market, we prefer vendors to call Miss, kan?)

faux diamante said...

It doesn't matter if it's in our language or we make grammatical or spelling mistakes but we get the message across. We put down our thoughts for a reason. :)

ALL OF YOU ROCK!!! :o) Yes, you are all my favourite makciks, you wonderful makcik bloggers, and are ageless to me in every sense. One day, I want to be as enthusiastic about learning as you, my sensational mak teh, as witty, humourous and kind as my big-hearted auntyN and as determined and wise as my perceptive makcik pantai. :o) Many hugs and thanks for sharing your stories with us.

mumsgather said...

"we are all ageless in this cyber world and will remain so"

How very true. I really like this saying of yours and might I add "We are raceless too." :)

AuntieYan. said...

Kak Teh : Thanks for all the"promotion" for makcik bloggers.
I started blogging about 3 yrs ago, with very little IT knowledge and menaip also like ayam mematuk padi...always tercari-cari the huruf-huruf on the key board. But now, I think my typing speed is tremendous...but do not laugh, I only use my two index fingers...but who care??...;-)

pembacha said...

aha... slightly different version from what i read on Sunday in Malay Mail.
anyway, will try to scream "Kak Teh" if i were to terjumpa you in London, can or not?
Go Makciks!

Mama Irma said...

Kak Teh,
I'm in your camp too!!!! At least my staff outside thought I am terribly busy, while in actual fact, terkial2 updating my blog! Hope you can find time visiting me.

MA said...

Kak Teh : I imagine all Makcik Bloggers dijemput ke Oprah Winfrey Show ala-ala Desperate Housewives cast !

What sets you apart KT is that you're such a warm & caring person. blogging for me used to be just a way to unload (and i did that but with the circle of fellow bloggers, i'm filled with a sense of belonging.

Thanks so much for taking me under ur wing ;)

Ms.B said...

*smiles* Amazing but NOT surprising to see what a big celebrity you've become, KT. Beribu-ribu kudos!!

anggerik merah said...

Kak Teh,

I envy you and you really bring everyone together. So do others in blog world.

This is the first blogspot that I knew from my good friend since 2 weeks ago. From here, I learn and read many more until I am now addicted to it..and find the right place to jot down my diary..

apples4me said...

Good job, Kak Teh! (So typical chicher phrase, right?;)It's an inspiration to all esp around your age to put their little twinkies to good use. Blogging very therapeutic what, right? Anyway, got to fill you in on the techie thing, boleh tak KAK TEH AND ELY enable the site feed from your blogger. That way I can know immediately when you enter a new post. I just signed up for bloglines.com It's an rss feed.
