Mini Bloggers Meet At Mid Valley Megamall

April 29th, 2006 - Saturday

Reta, Suanie, Jack and me
L-R: Reta, Suanie, Jack and me at Starbucks Mid Valley.

Trust that most bloggers will go out with a few other bloggers and then rush back to post an entry on that. And trust that they will post unflattering photos of others just for the heck of it. That was exactly what Reta did today in this entry.

Reta, Jack, Suanie, Wuan and I got together at Chopsticks Noodle House at Mid Valley Megamall just now. It seems that the circle of friends that I hang out with lately is mostly bloggers. I am not complaining though. They are some of the nicest and most sociable people I have ever known.

We met to discuss “some highly confidential matters” that we cannot reveal yet now. After we engorged ourselves full with rice and noodles and dessert, we adjourned to Starbucks for another round of discussion and camwhoring. What is a bloggers meet without some camera flashes going off?

After the meeting broke up, Wuan and I went shopping at Jusco. I needed a few more pairs of pants to replace those that I have been wearing since Mum got them tailored for me many years ago. I prefer ready-made pants for the variety of colours and wide selection available at department stores.

This is part of reclaiming my life back from what spinal cord injury had taken away from me. For many years, I had to wear baggy pants that was three sizes too large. It was to accommodate the urine bag that I carried with me wherever I went. Now that I have discarded them, I am able to wear more fitting clothes. It is regrettable that at a time when I am beginning to regain part of my life, I am also beginning to lose part of it to the ravages of my paralysis.

And hello to Juliana of Jaded. She came over and introduced herself when I was browsing in the pet shop at Level 3. It is always nice to meet a fellow blogger, especially one that I have chatted or corresponded with but have never met before.

    I was wondering whether the trips you’ve been taking would affect your health. Being able-bodied, I’m a bit embarrassed – and no less envious – that you’re having more adventures than me. I’ve also been depressed, reading about the passing of people like MGG Pillai.

    Perhaps it’s best one should just go out there and live. Hope you had a good time.

    Peter:
    You, travelling is failing kidneys’ killer. Live you must. These are just the kinks in life. We are all heading the same way anyway. Have fun!
