Girly Bloggers Night out (29.12.2006)

This gathering placed a really nice full-stop for my year 2006.

With the combination of thousands of emails, fund collection for buying a gift for everyone, sort of a potluck dinner, camera flashes everywhere and our dear mamalobengs singing, our night out totally rocks!

I had a hard time explaining to my mum where am I going and who am I meeting because she doesn't know what a "blog" means.

Me: Ma... I'm going to BSB tomorrow to meet up with some friends.
Mum: Who?
Me: Some friends that I never meet before but already know them online (from their blogs).
Mum: Ha? What?
Me: *walk away quietly because I don't know how to further explain it*

I bet most of us had that, it's difficult to make them understand what a blog means especially when they freaked out when it's a "online" thingie.

You know lah, everyday newspaper and TV having news of girls got cheated by "boyfriend" whom they meet online, later kana tipu money and virginity and later kill them lagi that sort of thing.

Bah, enough nonsense, back to the topic.

Nisah and I meet up on Friday morning to ready up the breast cancer and PCOS awareness brochure and also searched for packaging for the pink & white M&M special edition.

We get the flyers done in my place, Nisah did the text editing and I'm on the design.

Sigh.. It sucks to shop in KB/ Seria. We went thru up and down, and finally thought of a way to nicely pack the chocolates. Put them into a container (that looks like those little cups that RIPAS has for putting medicine) and staple the pink ribbon on them.

There wasn't much time left after the chocolate productions at Nisah's place and she still hadn't cook the dip yet. So I went back home, took a rest and shower and rushed to Nisah's place again.

Ngam ngam her mum decorating the bread. So chalie. And I wonder how they stuffed the bowl into the bread so nicely.

Nisah scooping the dip into the bread.
She wouldn't let me taking picture of her face.

Us ready to go

We arrived Emma's place at 8pm. It was raining thus there goes our garden party.

Emma was really sweet, like how everyone put it, a perfect host! And her house is really nice. The tables were nicely set up, a huge thanks to the "Decoration Committee" who went there early and Zimmy blowing the balloons.

Can you see chopsticks beside the spoon?
We're having sushis!

Everyone there are natual born camwhores I think. I shouted, "Hey everyone look here.", within 0.1seconds, they all gave their gorgeous pose and their best smiles.

Except for Maurina, have no idea what is she looking at? Brad Pitt kah? Or the BlogSpeak article?

And also the gifts, "nicely" wrapped. Like Maurina says, "You can only look at it this far", mm.. about 1 meter away from your eyes. If not you'll see the celotapes running all over the wrappers.

It's ok babe, what important is the thing inside kan?

The gifts with ribbons

The incomplete group photo
With the stairs, everyone can hide their real heights.

It's a bloggers meet and almost everyone brought their camera along. So when we're taking this picture, all we can see is stars and dark patches because of the camera flash.

Like celebrities.

See, we should had worn the shades. And I thought someone say want to bring payung lagi.

Just 2/3 of the total no. of cameras

The girls busy blotting

After photo taking session, all of us get seated and waited for Nisah's speech on Breast Cancer and PCOS awareness.

The M&M, chocolates and flyer

Oh ya I forgot to mention, when Nisah and I were packaging the M&M, Nisah's mum suggested us to stick an expiry date there. So funny lah auntie.

The flyer we prepared

Nisah preparing herself before speaking up
I bet the words Nisah said touched everyone of us and let us know that we're so blessed with a healthy body. Not going to say much about this because Nisah warned us "Don't write it in your blogs please".

So, am not writing it here.

Not writing it.
Not writing it.
Not writing it.
Not writing it.
Not writing it.

See, still not writing it.

Oh ya, Mizi was the photographer that night and Rano decided to drop by and took some pics too. However, I get this very cute photo of them. Hehehee.

So ngam Rano is pointing to himself.
So ngam Mizi was holding the cat.
So ngam Zimmy is looking helpless.

So, cannot waste it. Must put some (stupid) captions.

This is what Mizi said when he first saw me, "So you're Nonnie. I love the captions in your photos. Very funny the Spider-King."

For the first 3 seconds, I don't know whether I should feel happy about it or malu. But, as a muka-tembok person, I asked Rosie and Nisah to be quiet and asked Mizi to repeat what he said again. Hahahhaa. I'm so lame.

Spider-King is more famous than Nonnie King. Pathetic eh. But it does feel nice knowing that there are people out there who's reading my blog. =p

And, I always thought Mizi is a girl... Mizi sounds like girl kan?

Me: Hi, What's your name?
Mizi : (Long string of name which I forgot)mizi(continue with the long string of name)
Me: Oh, you have the word "mizi" in your name. I thought "Mizi" is for fun.

I know, I'm stupid.

Finally, makan time!

I'll leave the photos of food for Yeeman and Serene, our food bloggers.

I was so damn hungry and thus gets really greedy in taking a big plate of food. Finished it but couldn't go for the second roung. So sayang, I didn't get to eat all the food there.

Serene had a flight to catch the next morning so she had to go early. Thus we fast forward the "bagi present" time.

Maurina and Nisah asked me to "dip" the gifts from the big bag because I have no idea what's inside so it's more fair.

Whereas the gift buying committee shouts in excitement or disappointment everytime I pulled out a present.

They're eyeing for something they want.

So girls, please don't get mad at me if you didn't get what you want yah. I'm sorry.

The gift-giving ceremony
Mau, Nisah and I

I was really surprised by the gifts the girls bought! It's really thoughful and every girls will for sure like it and get to use them.

Instead of stuffs like photo frames, key chain or what-so-ever lame stuffs, they bought lip balm, Dove hair treatment spray and moisturizer cream! How cool is it!

It's really smart of you girls! *Salute*

After that, Najwa, better called as Mamalobengs because I can't really pronounce that word sang beautifully to entertain us.

If only I could have her voice. Her voice really makes us go "Awwwww...."


Mmm.. Not sure if she'll marah or not, but here, a short clip of her singing!

(I don't know but the Youtube shows this video status as "Uploaded(Processing. Please Wait". I hope the video works soon.

We asked her to encore 3 times! Just can't get enough of it bah. And I thought she's still single lagi. (It's a compliment!)

Some random pictures taken

That's Tina and Nisah playing with the glow stick

I want to play too!

Hehe, I asked Nisah to pose like we're having a battle.

I'm good in posing stupidly.

And the next one you're going to see, Zeti and I with sexy pouted lips.

Tell me, how many married woman with kids will ever pose like this? That's why she rocks!

Gah, I should had stand behind so my face looks smaller.

I hope I can blogged like what Rosie did (in her post), stating the first impressions she had for everyone. I can't do it because I didn't get to talk and take picture with everyone there. Probably the next time we have a gathering again, we have something like speed dating, changing seats every 5 mins talking with different people.

Hahahha. I'm just kidding about this.

Here, some of the babes had blogged about the night liao. Please go and visit their blog and you'll know how much fun we had that night.

Maurina: A blast that was

Oh by the way, just want to show you what Chau bought for me from Japan.

And this is what Nisah gets me. She said when she thought of me when she saw it.

Erm.. Do I have such big eyes?


Happy 2007!

2006 had been great for me.

I'm too lazy to review what I did in 2006.

And I hope more will be coming in 2007. Oh God, I'm turning 24..

And I wonder if NBT is going to have a "pig" figure during Chinese New Year since it's not "halal".
