A Memorable Evening

Wuan and I were late for the Project Petaling Street 2nd Anniversary Bash at Charlie’s Place. We were overwhelmed by the sheer number of bloggers as soon as we arrived. Some I know, some I stalk religiously and many I read occasionally, especially when they ping PPS. It was a night to remember with more than eighty bloggers and friends of bloggers congregating to celebrate the second anniversary of the only truly Malaysian blog aggregator that had allowed us to publicize and promote things that mattered most to us. Syabas Aizuddin for a truly unforgettable event. I am already looking forward to the third anniversary celebration and hopefully the Malaysia Bloggers Conference should it come to fruition.

I planted myself at the outermost table while Wuan went around taking photos. The uneven ground coupled with the crowd made it difficult for me to navigate around the premises freely. Many bloggers that I have not been acquainted with were gracious in going over to the table to greet me and introduced themselves. I am sorry I cannot remember all your names. I blame my advancing age for that. Thank you for taking the trouble to come greet me. The meet has been the pinnacle of my trip to Kuala Lumpur. Thank you all for making it a memorable one. And thank you PPS for the most wonderful two years of my life. I pray there will be many more.
