Flashback of The Awesome Bloggers Gathering 2012

It’s been nearly a year since the last bloggers gathering and I know I haven’t posted about it. So, sorry about that. Probably because I don’t have lots of my own pictures. Or maybe that’s just an excuse. Actually, I think it has something to do with me feeling that it could have been more great, you know. And I let myself down. I think it’s the same case with the previous gathering. Wakakaa.

Eniweiz, my fellow bloggers who were there that night, I’d like to refresh your memories on how we bonded together and laugh out loud.

 

The Awesome Bloggers Gathering 2012 was held on November 10th, 2012 and we held it at Party Play Lifestyle Cafe, Lintas Plaza, Kota Kinabalu. The theme is Single Colour and it’s just nice to see them all looking pretty and handsome in their attire that they chose hehee.

Here’s a compilation of the bloggers who attended (excluding guests and those who had to go back early).

So, we all arrived one by one and while waiting for the others, we just sat and have a chit chat.

Shery here looks so happy when she saw us all. Actually she was happy because she saw Tom; She thought it was the wrong place.

We had gift exchange session later that night so we brought our own gifts and put them on one spot. Our gifts are worth around RM30. Nevertheless, all the gifts were awesome.

When everyone was present, we had an ice-breaking session by having to introduce another blogger or guest to everyone. Each of us picked a random name and act like we know the person hahaa. Some of us even dig information on the spot. That was cute.

Thankfully, the small paper that I got had Tom Rungitom’s name on it. I met him before and he helped with this event’s planning process too. We also chat on FB from time to time. So, here I am explaining to people what I know about him. lol.

I forgot what I said about him. But considering from his facial expression, I think I said something like:
Mr. Tom, the handsome photographer.

Elwyna had a bit of difficulty introducing Vanessa but it was their first time meeting each other, so of course. But that’s the fun part… to introduce someone you’re not familiar with and then just familiarise yourself in front of other people hehee.

Aemy’s boyfriend, Ifo also got a chance to join in. He introduced Sasa Tien. And from what we can see here, he seems to be doing a good job. Though Sasa looks like, “Erm, okaaay. How does he know so much about me.” Hahaa just kidding. Most of us asked about each other before it was our turn.

Makan time!

I had Chocolate Milkshake and a Double Cheese Burger.

Then the night continued with Chegu Carol organizing the games and we had so much fun. I don’t have pictures of us playing. Probably because most of us were playing hard hahaa.

And then it was gift exchange session and everyone got their own random name again. And Nath got my name. Two small pillows perfect for when I sit on the floor facing my laptop. Better than sitting on hard floor, right hahaa. Thanks, Nath!

Aki ended the night by giving an awesome speech. Everyone just sat and listened. Would be nicer if it was quieter though because it was a bit noisy outside. There was a live band outside, which is cool. But it’d be great if the area was a bit soundproofed hahaa.

Salute to Aki. He talked about blogging and such. He can be a politician if you asked me. A politician with an afro hahaa.

P.S Even though the blogosphere is a bit quiet and this may seem last minute. But I wanna have another gathering this year. Who’s interested? At least I know the number of people who wanna join in. I have some ideas about the gathering but it depends on the number of bloggers joining. icon biggrin Flashback of The Awesome Bloggers Gathering 2012
