Browsing the Opposition command centre and camps was interesting. As a journalist and blogger, it would be fun doing some investigating and fact-gathering IF YOUR ARE NOT SPOTTED!
Now we understand why some bloggers did not display their photo on their blogs. They just did not want to be recognised. Some label them as coward. irresponsible and only like to throw stones at people.
I got my picture on my blog, thinking nobody would bother to know how I look like, where I stay, etc. I was wrong.
Merely 20 minutes into conversation with some PKR people in Batang Kali last nite (around 10.30pm), a few men aged between 25-40 intervened, saying: "Awak blogger pro-kerajaan, kan? Saya kenal awak. Elok keluar dari sini."
In defending my presence, I said I had never written anything bad about them during the start of campaigning for Hulu Selangor. They didnt buy it. "Blogger kerajaan semua sama, semuanya memburukkan pembangkang."
Hey! What about their bloggers who keep on battering the government blindly?
So, I left the place (not intimidated), only to notice that a group of six people were leaning on my car. "Ni kereta encik ke? Patutlah ada sticker Press," said one of them. Lucky, they didnt smash up my windscreen or scratch its body. "Tak payahlah datang sini lagi."
My reminder to other bloggers on duty in Hulu Selangor, hide your identity for the sake of your safety, especially in the Opposition-controlled areas. I think that's part of the reasons why Rockybru, Ahmad Talib and some bloggers of disclosed-identity have yet to be spotted there...
