Please be reminded that we are going to send this card to Puan Marina tomorrow (27 Sept 2008). We may not be able to include any message posted after 27 Sept 12pm.
To All Concerned Malaysian,
27th September is the birthday of the respectful Raja Petra who was recently been detained under Internal Security Act by the Barisan Government.
To show support to Raja Petra on his effort to uncover the truth, and his vision towards a united Malaysia, we plan to send him a birthday card, to be hand delivered to his wife, Puan Marina Lee Abdullah before his birthday.
為了對Raja Petra揭露真相，拆穿腐敗的努力表示支持，我們計劃為他送上一張生日卡。這張卡，我們打算在他的生日之前，通過其妻，即Puan Marina Lee Abdullah 轉交給他。
We urge you, a Malaysian, who appreciate his effort to sign this birthday card, show him that he is not alone behind the Kamunting Detention Camp.
You may send in your message to me, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment here http://chinyauchia.blogspot.com.

We will compile your message, and send it to Puan Marina before his birthday by hand.
我們將綜合所有的留言與訊息，在他的生日前轉交給 Puan Marina。
Let him know his effort is not wasted, Let him know you care about him, let him know he is not alone!

I have received responses in both emails and sms, and I have posted below. I need to withhold their names as they did not specifically tell me whether they wanted their names to be shown publicly.
Forgive me for my lousy Chinese translation, but I am trying as much as possible, as my little contribution.
I urge those who wish to send RPK message via this birthday card program to include their names. Don't you want to tell RPK who cares for him?
Many asked why we started this. In fact, both my wife and me was thinking of giving him a birthday surprise even before his detention. Since the situation changed, we think its better for us to do it publicly.
May justice prevailed.
I will try my best to edit some of his views, in voice recording we have recorded, and will be posted here as soon as I can.
Meanwhile, those who wish to send snail card to RPK themselves, by all means. his current address as follow:
YM Raja Petra Raja Kamarudin
Tempat Tahanan Perlindungan
Flood the camp with greeting cards to RPK, and if you wish, to all behind that WALL and greet them Selamat Hari Raya. Tell them we did not abandon them! Tell them they deserve a trial in the open court and they deserve their rights to defend themselves.

Just loaded the card. Was told that musical card will probably not reaching detainees in the camp, or rather, nothing will reach them. But we will try, atleast we hope Marina will show RPK during he upcoming visit.
