yesterday i gave you the report of speakers square by founding committee member, andre loh. today, i present to you the programme on 8 may – the anniversary celebration. i hope all penangites will come and give your support. this is YOUR space. you asked for it. so come and celebrate one year of having a place to air our views in public.
say, one of the highlights of the celebration is a lucky draw and one of the prize is an art piece from the lady herself – susan loone! yep, the famous ‘celebrity’ blogger, malaysiakini reporter, poet and artist. (you can view some of her paintings at this post of mine). anyone else want to sponsor some prizes? say, an ipad and i will wish hard that i get it. lol. everybody’s been giving away ipad, i notice. i mean corporations like banks and telcos. not giving away as completely free (because there ain’t such a thing as free lunch) but with conditions like e.g. if you spend over RM500 a month on your credit card, you are eligible to an ipad lucky draw. last sunday’s paper alone, i notice the ad page, 3 banks and 1 telco offering free/lucky draw ipad!
oops. sorry i get carried away. suppose to give you the programme now. ok, here it is:
