Meeting with Bloggers at Mid-Valley

I had the privilege of meeting up with fellow bloggers for the first time except Elin at Mid Valley a few days ago. It was a glorious few hours getting to know these lovely ladies. We had a great time chatting, sharing blogging, photography and baking tips and getting to know one another. The extraordinary thing was how easily we all click...........no pretense, no awkwardness; no fumbling for something to say.........it was relaxed and genuine and the time went by way too fast! Thank you Elin, Joanna, Reese, Quinn, Tracie, Swee San, Sonia, Pei Lin, Bee Bee and Petite Nyonya, for a lovely time, the flower and the gifts. It was such a pleasure to finally meet you all. We have to do this again the next time.

From L to R : Lovely Petite Nonya, Reese, Bee Bee and Sonia.

It is also a great pleasure to finally meet you in person Gertrude! ;) I did not get a chance to say this to you that afternoon, but your blog was one of the wonderful blogs that inspired me to create one for myself! Thanks so much and would love to meet up with you and the other ladies again soon. Take care!

Thanks Gertrude for your lovely and pleasant company :). I truly agree we all clique naturally, no pretense at all. I sure hope there'll be another gathering next year and we'll meet up again. You know something, somehow your Seremban char siew pau (which u made last year) always stuck in my mind because I was so impressed when I saw it, but unfortunately I'm not that adventurous or talented with paus to try it out yet. Would love to one day. Ok, have a great day ahead..cheers!

Hey, Gertrude! Glad that I sat beside you! I got to talk to you a lot that afternoon! LOL! Thanks for sharing your stories, they really cracked me up especially with regard to cultural differences we see in the U.S.

I do hope we can have something like this again! I feel so bad that I went there empty-handed! Next time I'm so gonna fix some food and bring it over!

Thank you for the red packet! Have a safe trip home! Send my regards to Carlos and Diane.
