Pixs from Nila’s blog “life is beautiful“.
Nila (pix: middle) has written a thank you note to all of us. Thank you Nila, we are with you! We are sorry for what has happened to you, and for your great loss. [Just when she is trying to get over the lost of her love companion, Nila has been suspended from her job at the SCTV after that post, read also unspun]. Nila, hope a time will come when those who hurt you will pay dearly. Read here, detikinet, an online media in Indonesia for more detail.
Now, Adnan has not only pissed off Malaysian bloggers but Indonesians as well. As Malaysian, I, too, apologise to all Indonesian bloggers for this ‘bodoh’ act on the part of our Tourism officials. Maaf.
Despite her pain, here’s what Nila says:
I would like to thank you for all your support. Am very sorry that I haven’t been able to give any comments related to the statement of The Malaysian Tourism Board Tengku Adnan yet (on the “Bloggers are liars. They use all sort of ways to cheat others. From what I know, out of 10,000 unemployed bloggers, 8,000 are women”)) as I was still mourning of the loss of my special person in life.
And today, I got even more responses in my blog as Tengku Adnan made a clarification on the remarks last week on women bloggers by saying “I didn’t mean all women. I was referring to Indon journalist” (Relishdish.blogspot.com),
Soon after, I got a phone call from one of the online media in Indonesia, asking me about this matter. The media wrote 3 articles regarding this issue and there were some comments as well from the readers in their website as well as in my blog.
Reading all the comments and posts in the blogosphere, I’d love to thank all of you for the supports. As a blogger, all I wanted to do was to tell the truth, share my experience (and hopefully readers can learn from it), thoughts and how I felt toward certain things. I’m sure that’s what we all do
So, again, thank you for Indonesian bloggers, Malaysian bloggers and all bloggers in the world! As for Malaysian bloggers, thank you for your posts and comments. I would love to visit your country again, and maybe promoting Malaysia in the near future (if not in the TV station – coz I’m still being suspended, could be in the printed media as I’m also a writer for a travel magazine).
