Naturally, many were concerned on where he obtain their email addresses. At first I thought it was sent to people/bloggers who signed up for his tea parties and dinners that he has organized to meet and greet his online friends. This was not the case.

    How dare u say Im sitting on my ass doing nothing?? Or in your words “someone malas kerja then complain not enough money”. Grrr There is a reason why im not taking the tutoring job in my old college. Its Kota Damansara to Cyberjaya every single day. Fourty minutes ONE WAY and thats not including the jam. Not to mention toll would be around 6-12 bucks depending on which highway. Do that for FOUR BLOODY YEARS and tell me you want to do it for another 6 months (min contract) or more.
