BUM 2011

Well, I am writing this at the behest of certain people in regards to the event covered on 24 July and I have to admit that this year's turnover was less than the usual crowd, primarily because of many people engaged in other activities (one of them was the launch of Selangorku campaign) and that being of a Sunday instead of a usual Saturday where the last 4 editions of BUM would be held.

I was specially invited by the organizing commitee of BUM and they have asked me to help in bringing in a younger audience to participate in the show. Quite a pain in the neck over the one week prior to the event of course

Anyhow, the event managed to rope in several top guests including Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim, Tian Chua, cartoonist Zunar and one of the Bersih 2.0 steering committee members, Maria Chin. MB was there for the opening address but the event was delayed by almost an hour due to the entourage's difficulty in finding the location of the venue, while the rest went as planned.

It was very surprising to see some of the people, whom I met again from the previous night (a function at Bangsar)  showing up there for the same event cause.

Here are some of the selected pics from the event:
