Redhuan D. Oon about the bazaar[edit]

  • Firstly i said that i am from 16 hrs away - Malaysia. And the great thing about the web is that we are all 0 hr away from everyone. And that to form a marvelous bazaar today is so much simpler to get the best people around the globe who just have web access to be in the same room. Since this is proven i would not go into it.
