My dear friends (that’s everyone who reads this blog, OK?),
In the three years I’ve maintained this blog, I’ve gone by the name Mat Bangkai. This has elicited a number of reactions. Some were amused, some were appalled, some were turned off. But I suspect that many just read me anyway, regardless of the name.
Today (a day as good as any), I would like to wish all of you readers a warm and heartfelt ‘Thank you’. I am touched that you have made me a part (no matter how small) of your lives. I hope you have enjoyed reading me as I have enjoyed your company through the years.
Often, I’ve often been asked the reason why I chose the name Mat Bangkai. For the record, when I started this blog, Bangkai was the word that best described how I felt at the time. Yes, those were trying times. But the thing about hard times is that they eventually pass. And pass they have.
Now that the reasons for going incognito no longer exist, I will shed the Mat Bangkai name and blog under my real name. Yes, the mystique of Mat Bangkai will be gone. But I hope you will still like me all the same – and that blogging as the real me will not turn out to be a mistake
Have a good day, my friends.
