Bloggers Meet At KY’s

This entry is eight days late. It was just the day I had my head shaved. Trying to get used to the nakedness was difficult. Wuan and I hopped into Taman Maluri Jusco to look for a cap or a bandana, and get food for the potluck at KY’s. Failing to find any that I liked, we proceeded to the supermarket to get three roasters for the bloggers meet.

That was also the first time I took the Putra LRT, from Sentral to Taman Bahagia, the first several years ago from Masjid Jamek to KLCC. I only had to pay half the regular fare to any destination. The stations were very disabled friendly, thanks to a group of disabled people who campaigned for such facilities. Unfortunately, I did not have time to check out the accessible toilets.

We arrived one hour late. It was raining and cold. Kenneth and Suanie picked us up from the station. As soon as they arrived, I could see Suanie inside the car giggling her head off. I did not know that being hairless on top made me look funny. And I thought Kenneth was Suanie’s boyfriend until she told me who he is.

There was an abundance of food and free-flowing ribena vodka at KY’s house. I ate my portion of protein and had to stop although I would have loved to feast on everything that was on the table. As usual, cameras were aplenty with flashes going off at the most embarrassing moments.

Wuan and I had a great time catching up with the bloggers meet regulars. We finally got to see the famous koi pond KY had blogged about so much too. I had a fun time listening to Fox, Paul and KY talking about their school-day adventures. Mine was like so very long ago. All of a sudden I felt so old among these youngsters. All said, I would like to thank KY for allowing us to use his house for the meet. This is one I will remember for a long time and to Suanie, MataKecik, Paul Tan, Reta, Serge, Emily, Andreas, FireAngel, Chea Yee, JoMel, Kenneth, Foxtrotecho, Jolene, Thai Boxing Girl, Albert, Jack and Horng for making it such a wonderful day for Wuan and me.
