  1. btw, this ‘penang wireless campaign group’ if they are against wireless penang, then why is their name ‘penang wireless campaign group’? shouldn’t the name be ‘penang anti-wireless campaign group’? oh i see all their posts were cut and paste articles taken here and there to support their stand on wireless posing a big health risk.

    any supporter of wireless penang wanna start a group/blog and get hard-working sourcing for news/info/articles that support wireless does not pose danger/health risk? πŸ™‚

    i’ll join the 2nd group. πŸ˜‰

  2. haha. so true anil. penang is such a happening place that all my weekend are tied up. so much to do, so much to see, so many place to go – sometimes overlap too… dunno where to go. wish i could be at 2 places at one time.

    well tomorrow sunday, first i’m going for the pictorial history exhibition, then to little penang street for kee thuan chye’s reading, and after that to d’space for free movie screening on recycling! (check my blog later on info about this recycling film). see, whole of sunday taken up.

    btw at little penang street market, lots of other activities happening apart from kee’s reading. er… i think kee’s reading is at the foyer of the garage. that’s the info he sent from email – at the garage not beach blanket babylon.
