KK Blogger’s Meet

I think this was, as far as I know of, already search for it over the internet, the first such gathering held in KK. It was held at Pirates of Borneo Cruise Boat. Thank God it’s not the Black Pearl; we might have to scrub the deck. It’s just a boat, park at Jesselton Point. OK, the thing is, I’ve only started blogging this year, in Friendster, but these guys have been blogging for sometime now, some of them doing part time, some full time. Gosh, I wish I could get to know them before we meet, so I can at least talk to them, instead of just trying to finish the grilled lamb chop, chicken wing, prawns, fish, fried rice & noodle, salad, desert. Did I mention lamb chop? Yes, I’ve been eating lamb chops for 3 consecutive nights.

 

 

Anyway, the gathering was jointly organise by JACQ aka Caneeliea, Gallivanter aka Daniel and Lady Stiletto aka Debbie. Below are list which I copied from JACQ’s blog. I’ll try to get the confirm attendance from JACQ later on.

 

Confirmed participants:

Olieee message me over friendster about the gathering, and I thought to myself, I blog for pleasure only and I don’t even know all of them. Soon after that Olieee she texted me and manage to coax me to go. FYI, Olieee is one of my IRC friends in #Jesselton a few years back. Anyway, we promised to meet up at Jesselton Point at about 7:30pm. Because I hate to go through traffic jams, I decided to go there with my work cloth, to kill the time, I went to Centre Point to get myself a new digital camera. My dad lost mine so I need to get a new one. It so happen, lotte’ who is another IRC chat friend of mine from the same channel was going to CP to check out some books. I meet her at Popular Bookstore, accompany her to dinner; just have a drink though because I have a buffet dinner at the gathering later on; then she accompany to get my cam. Yeah, I’ll blog that little adventure later on.

 

Ok, I reached Jesselton Point at about 7:45pm and Olieee arrived at about 8:10pm. Yeah… janji orang Sabah hahaha. We went to register our self, met a few of the blogger, and then went to board the boat. We have our buffet dinner, get to know some of the blogger. Soon after that the boat started to move. OK, I thought it won’t be cruising at all (JACQ blog mentioned it won’t cruise). YEAY!!! I could test out my night scene function on my cam, looking over KK, over the sea. How often you get the chance to do that? While cruising, they started off with Lucky Number prize presentation, then a blogger introduction. Shoot, I have to introduce myself to them. OK, told them my name, my nickname et cetera et cetera. I guess I’ll be starting my own blog site after this; I was in my earlier plan. Soon after that we head back to Jesselton Point, have a few photo sessions before we depart. I think most of the blogger went home, the rest went clubbing. I would love to join them but I was to tired, reason being I slept at 3 in the morning d same day. Maybe next time. I’ll upload some of the photo on my album, so check that out later.

 

By the way, if any of you ever heard of giuk.net; a site which list down all Sabahan blogger, the owner was there, Mr. Badak, also the owner of sabahrhinos.com

 

The Geek

A so called geek who resides at North Borneo, in a not so little city anymore, formerly known as Api-Api to the locals, Jesselton to the colonialist. This geek is a Civil Engineer by profession, who have lots of ideas popping up while traveling, who will write whatever popped up in his mind and hopping the reader would not be so judgmental toward his writings. This geek is also a computer & internet junkie who love outdoor, which is pretty much contradicting to each other doesn’t it? This geek is good at almost everything but a master of none (read about this somewhere). People may perceive him as a very quiet, describe as phlegmatic person, yet he is quite a chatterbox to those whom he is really close or comfortable with. This geek thinks anime chicks are way cooler than a real chick hence why he also likes to watch it (not the chicks, but the anime). Not to be mistaken as watching a cartoon, anime to this geek and to most of anime follower are animation that are created and produce by the Japanese.
