Look what I brought home from the KK Bloggers Meet

A Nuffnang-sponsored latest Bon Jovi CD, my winning entrance ticket, and my uniquely written name sticker, souvenirs from the KK Bloggers meet on 6 July 2007.

The Winning Pose. PapaJoneh did the honours of presenting the prize. Photo by Julian (http://81lions.blogspot.com/).I’m not going to post much on the event, knowing that my other blogging buddies will do a better job of transcribing the craziness that was going on. I do have a few notes to share:

  • I was glad I had someone to talk to; I was worried I would end up looking silly and looking like a dodo just sitting by myself and playing with my son (thanks Josie and Rachel).
  • My son apparently had more fun than me last night.
  • Surprisingly I found out that I know more bloggers there than I was hoping, which was cool.
  • I almost shrieked when the boat started to move. I had deja-vu of my 6 hours in a stranded Labuan ferry during a fierce rainstorm flashing in front of me.
  • Jefferi C. (whom I called our unofficial “official photographer”), was the first person to blog and put photos of our gathering. I stole one of his photos below. Check out the rest of the photos in his blog.

A shout out to these people from making the KK Bloggers Meet a success: Daniel@Gallivanter and Jacq@Caneeliea (P1, P2, P3) for organizing the gig; Pirates of Borneo for their very accommodating service and for distributing Novomins to some of us sea-sick, sad folks; Nuffnang for sponsoring the goodies for our lucky draw; and last but not least, the bloggers and aspiring bloggers who made the meet merrier: Josie@kupi, Rachel C., Jeffrey@mrBadak, BenGodomon, PapaJoneh, Jefferi C. (P1, P2, P3), Jewelle, Julian, Murphy@mySabah, Melissa@Friday Cat, Wei Chuen, Debbie@Lady Stiletto, Faizal Heesyam@Pai, Ned, Anthony & Siew Ling, nyst.wysrt, Jimmy, Lionel, LaViaP, Zie, Olieee and … (I plan to put in the whole list of people I can remember, but my two little commanders demand my attention NOW, so I’ll get back to this list pretty soon.)

  10. Jewelle says:

    Hi Lorna, nice to meet you although we didn’t get to chat much. I especially liked your “I didn’t blog during office hours”…that was funny, jangan ada yang terkena satu biji πŸ˜‰ Luckily I didn’t bring my daughters, kalau tidak with MrBadak’s Jordan and your Jayden (right?), tunggang terbalik tu boat kita tu…

    See you next time!

    • papajoneh says:

      that part..betul2 I kena lah. I really blog from office… I think same with Pai. Night time for family. The only time left for them actually. πŸ™

      • Lorna says:

        It was something Murphy@MySabah said that prompted me to say it. I don’t remember what he said, tho, heh.

    • Lorna says:

      Uh, yeah, and I hope everyone believed me when I said I don’t blog from the office.
      πŸ˜›

  11. Pai says:

    i totally forgot to say my line, “i blog in office”..
    thats the last thing i want to say, but disebabkan nervous pasal lama sudah ndak buat public speaking, trus lupa.. hahah! next gathering jak lah..

  12. Olieee says:

    hey Lorna aka webgrrrl,

    hehe i’m so jealous to those who won the BON JOVI CD’s!!!!!
    better luck next time then….
    had fun that nite… Eric & Jordan menari nari to the music are so cute!!! πŸ˜‰

    • Lorna says:

      The kids sure had fun that night. I’m having a slightly difficult time finding your blog, Olieee — could you drop your URL here so I can bookmark it?

      • Olieee says:

        hi Lorna,

        when its up when i have time to blog like you guys i’d surely let u guys know the URL baybeh… for now i only blog in a common website.. LoL…

  13. Lorna, you should’ve sung that night…

    Regarding Bon Jovi, unfortunately I have to say this: I was glad I got the thumbdrive instead of the CD… Jon Bon Jovi aka Jon Bongiovi has lost the creative juice for more than 10 years already. I used to like them even pre-Slippery When Wet era (7800 fahrenheit, etc esp the excellent Silent Night track). I even had Jon’s solo album in 1990 (Miracle, Santa Fe etc) – they were good until 1993 (Bed of Roses etc) – after that it’s all downhill… This seems to be a trend for everyone, even my all-time favourite band, Def Leppard. The lesson seems to be: break up before you expire, like Led Zep and The Beatles did. ABBA started to sound stale in their last LP, but “fortunately” they broke up. Oooops… I better blog about this hahaha

    • Lorna says:

      Ssshh, don’t tell Gallivanter that!! Don’t want to sound ungrateful but I like the thumbdrive myself — I’m lucky to get anything at all!

      Me sing? What nasty things have you heard about me? It’s good I didn’t, otherwise we’ll be having free swims in the ocean. Besides, you must be referring to my elder sister Lydia, now she can sing.
