A blogger meet..

Pok ku invite me in a chat room for a TT, I replied that that I would be happy to meet and then he say why not lunch and I agreed...Well I have never met Pok ku, a blogger that I guess many people know. We would meet this Tuesday the 21st at NZ Melawati for lunch and the time is One in the afternoon...He say he would get other bloggers to come along and I would also try to bring someone that I know....I hope other bloggers who happen to visit my blog would be able to spare some time to join us for the lunch as a meeting among bloggers...Well it all start in cyberspace and like I had said before...The internet is a Godsend tool for us to communicate and make friends...Remember strangers are friends that we have yet to meet....So friend bloggers do find the time for the lunch planned on Tuesday the 21st of June, 2005 at the NZ Restaurant....This is an open invitation...The more the merrier...Lets make it an interesting meeting of bloggers...

Pak Idrus-Pok Ku- It seems that the elderly bloggers in Malaysia are using Pak - Pak Ku, Pak Adib, Pak Idris and Pak Lias. So, as a group they can be known as Pak Bloggers (Not as PAK BLOG). The word Pak is derived from the bapa – which is pronounced as bape (Malaysia) or bapak (Indonesia), bapok (Trengganuspeak) and bapuk (different meaning in Johor). However, the use of this word may have different meaning in different context/country. In Indonesia, Pak is used the title Mister (English) or Encik (Malaysian) and so everyone is called Pak e.g. Pak Harto, Pak Sudomee etc. It is interesting that many Indonesian in our country are creating confusion on this two term with word fusions that emerged as Pak Cik. It is not the Pak Cik/ Pokcik (uncle) in the Malaysia sense but it the fusions of Pak + Encik = Pak Cik (pronounced more as Pakcek). However, in Indonesia the leader of a group is known as Kepala e.g. Kepala Kantor ( Head of the Office) . A group of Malaysian delegation from the Coconut Division of the Agriculture Department visited the Indonesian Agriculture department. The Indonesian counterpart addressed the head of the delegation as “kami, bapak bapak disini yang terdiri dari Kepala Kantor Deparmen Pertanian mengucapkan selamat datang kepada Pak Ahmad iaitu Kepala Kelapa dari Malaysia….” And in replying to the welcoming speech ,the leader of the Malaysian delegation addressed the head of the Indonesian reception committee “Saya bagi pihak delgasi ingin mengucapkan terima kasih kepada Kepala Bapak Departmen Pertanian kerana menerima lawatan kami……………” And in Indonesian “Pak Blog” may mean different thing altogether.
