Jump to Comments

KUALA LUMPUR: About five weeks from now, BUM2009 will tap-dance in again at The Lake View Club, Subang Jaya, and the Organising Committee is giving you good notice to keep yourself free for a date at Da Bloggers’ Event of Da Year!

And we will have an extra session on top of last year’s two as we believe the new media scene has attracted a lot of interest after its power and influence and impact at the March 8, 2008 General Elections were duely noted by many quarters, both political and social.

Mark Saturday, May 16, 2009 in your diary. The BUM2009 Organising Committee has gathered at the Starter’s Block, and with these vibrant members all fired up to make the Event memorable for all BUMmers, with many who served at last year’s BUM2008 — does this Logo strike a chord with you? –


making a re-apprearance.

Chairman: Sdr YL Chong aka Desiderata

Co-chairman: Sdr Ahirudin Attan aka rockybru

Bahasa Malaysia Chair: Sdri Helen Ang

Treasurer: Sdri Helen Hoh

COMMITTEE MEMBERS: Liew Hui Mei, ES Shankar aka donplaypuks, Capt Yuosf Ahmad aka ancient mariner, Dr SM Yeoh aka maverickysm, Chris Chew aka mob1900, Frances Yee aka primrose.

BUM2009 will feature the following:

THEME: 4th and 5th Estates — on Collision Course?

(1) Morning Session’s Topic:

The Media - Civil Society’s Perspectives

(2) Afternoon Session’s Topic:

This session will feature mainly Bloggers writing in Bahasa Malaysia
and the Chair coordinating this will soon announce the topic — Stay tuned!

(3) Evening Session’s Topic:

Has The Old Media Failed Civil Society?


The BUM2009 OC — that’s for Organising Committee! – will try to keep the Entrance charge as low as possible, like maybe at last year’s BUM2008’s at RM50 per person, or an additional RM10 as there is an extra session this year! Of course, it’s FREE for our OC for all their hard work, and for the esteemed speakers, who cometh with special roles like lending their minds and thrust-and-parry with all comers during the entertaining Q and A session.

PS: One morsel of information I must leave with you before I temporarily take leave: Desi heard on the grapevine for the May 16, 2009 dinner, THREE LAMBS are headed for the Warren Buffet’s table at da Lake View Club, Subang Jaya!

Details of the programme will be posted within a week from now.
