Greetings Lovely Srikandis!

This is supposed to be the introductory entry for this Srikandi Cyber meeting place. Firstly, Assalamualaikum and wishing a very pleasant day to all readers. Initiating and moderating this blog is one of the highlights of my life. I feel honored and glad for the opportunity to gather as many budding and established writers among Srikandis. If we were to combine the years of wisdom among us, it could total up to more than tens of thousands, I guess.

This blog was started as part of the STFOGA branding initiatives currently lead by SK Sharifah Zaida Nurlisha. SK Hanazita ’91, SK Azlul Adilah ’92 and I, SK Dayang ’91 were entrusted with setting up and managing this blog. This blog was created in less than an hour upon receiving the instruction via email, thanks to IT technology and free cyber space!

Currently we are still in the midst of identifying and inviting potential and interested authors who are willing to contribute to the blog. We are not being specific on the content type and format, as this is a casual meeting place for Srikandis. We’re hoping that this can become something like a community board where Srikandis share our thoughts, musings, announcements, advertisements, promotions, news and broadcasts. Dilemmas and anger management kind of entries are also accepted and hopefully we can get a Cik Sri Siantan in the house, too!

On a more positive side, look at this blog as an extension to our existing Yahoo! groups that have done wonders to the society for the past few years.

So, why wait? I know you have got something to say here. Every posting is important to us. Email us so that we could invite you as contributors or simply drop us an email containing your entry and we’ll take care of the publishing part. Happy blogging!

Salam...

Congrats for this new blog! So proud to be one of Srikandis. I'd love to contribute, but my writing mostly (all, I think) are in Malay. Is it OK? How to submit my article?

Hi Sitinur,
sure! You can send postings fully written in Bahasa Melayu or Bahasa Indonesia. Blogger also supports Hindi postings, too bad most of us can't read Hindi. Hehe!
