Association Of Bloggers (Singapore)

So some bloggers out there set up an association of Singapore bloggers and proclaim it (or at least they want) to be the authority "to accredit bloggers", "to educate bloggers and improve the quality of blogs" and even to the extent of "dispute resolution".


AOBS want to accredit limpeh's blog?

AOBS want to educate limpeh and improve the quality of limpeh's blog?


Just because they are registered with the Registrar of Societies, suddenly they are lord over the Singapore Bloggers?


Early early didn't we have and it flopped?

So what makes AOBS any better? SGD 50 entrance fee + SGD 60 annual subscription leh! That's a lot of money for dunno what the member will get in return wor!

Let Limpeh tell you what I can do with SGD 110.00

With SGD 110.00, I can
  • buy 30 System-7 TOTO tickets. Chinese New Year Jackpot coming liao!
  • buy 3kg of Lexandria's father's bak kwa.
  • buy 7 Kilkenny's to drink with Ahtiong73 at Wala Wala. 
  • buy 1 bottle of Bruno Paillard Blanc de Blanc (Non-vintage).
  • buy 3 bottles of wine from sexy chiobus selling them out of their Mercedes' car boot.
  • buy 1 month membership at FitnessFirst gym.
  • buy-in to the office BanLuck session.
Seriously what for I spend that kind of money not knowing what I am paying for?

Siao one!

p.s. Originally, I didn't want to write this coz the Tua Neh Neh chiobu in the committee is my friend lah. But hor, I ish cannot take it. If I don't get this off my chest, let the pent up rants build up inside, wait I end up also Tua Neh Neh like her then how?

Why you never say can buy 5 dresses from! *bitchslap*
The best thing about blogging and social media is its freedom - you can't stop people from saying what they feel and it's the honest to god best thing when you want to hear the truth. ;)
I respect you for writing about your thoughts in an honest and steady manner and not go the ball-less route of 'lend knife kill people'. Friends don't expect each other to support blindly or sacrifice their freedom of thinking.
So, some folks are asking if I am mad - my answer is ya: only because you never say can buy dresses from my shop :P
And, when I see you the next time, I am going to piak you for that. *piak*

Ahtiong73: Arh bor call Happy Hour? Of course we happy (7 times) during Happy Hour lor!

Tua Neh Neh: I don't wear dress so never cross my mind that $110 can buy 5 xtralicioushop dresses mah.

Anyway the same freedom applies to you too where nobody can stop you guys for forming this association.

I have my doubts if this will take off after seeing so many flops but you are most welcome to enjoy the honeymoon with all things new.

Perhaps I shall revisit this issue a year later to see how you guys are doing.

I first read about it few days ago and I was surprised with this lousy idea, thought I was alone but guess I am not now.
Only make money online bloggers will join while casual blogger like me won't. But even if I blog for money and I wouldn't give a damn about the accredition as long as I make money not as if I am getting a Nobel Prize for joining.
The accredition thing lacks authority.
They want blogs to be a reliable source of information, maybe we should turn our blogs into CNN or CNBC for better credibility.

ruok: Bikini club? Nah.... they wear too much clothing liao.

mootq: Welcome to the blog. My take is that my blog is my blog and I don't need somebody who claims to be some kind of authority (NOT!) to "accreditate" my blog. Goddamn it! It's my blog and I run it anyway I like.

Hamie: The monthly subscription depends on how you negotiate your membership.

onc: This one tua neh neh one... ->

Linny: 211 would be nice. Then again, it would be fun to see you skate with just one skate.
