An Impromptu Bash

It started with just 4 people wanting to meet - Doc TA, kerpie, Mat Salo and that cakapaje fella - but it grew in numbers to more than 20! Bloggers who were strangers, except for the visits to each other sites, became acquainted and soon later, the many who were strangers, became friends.

I have no words to describe the 5hour marathon meet just now. Except for a single Mee Rebus Tuesday attendance, I have never really met so many bloggers before; Accia and family, The Voice, Doc TA and akak, kerpie, Mat Salo, Elviza, Raden, Muteaudio, Pak Idrus, Pok Ku, Marina Mahathir, Jaflam and many more which my tiny mind cannot remember for now - do forgive me.

But in the presence of many, my heart do notice the absence of some - blogging friends whom I have come to know but have yet the opportunity to meet them personally: Bergen, Bee Bee, Big Dot Com, bro Zul, Cikgu KTN, de_kerinci, doc-lover, Farina, Fatin, GM, Hata, Mavericyk, Mekna, Minci, Pak Mior, Pak Zabs, Pak Zawi, Pak Kassim Selamat, Puteri Nad, Sheih, Puan Nuraina, Tok Mummy, WL, and many more too!

To my blogging friends who were unable to make it, or were not even aware of this meet we had today, I dedicate this song to you.

Most of all, I believe I mention this on behalf of all present just now: Matsalo bro, thank you for being a remarkable host!

Shah,
I was sure you all would be having fun but 5 hours, now that is real fun. Met anyone of the fairer sex interesting? Hope to meet you all soon.a

salam shah,
we were very happy to have met all of you. like ive told them, i blog sebab afifah yang dah pulang, and Allah Taala ketemukan Mama ramai kawan-kawan. semoga persahabatan ini berpanjangan. semoga juga dimurahkan rezki rakan-rakan yang made this possible.

Salam Shah,
Missing this meet is like missing a part of life to me. I wanted to be there so much but a crippling backache and many chores at home prevented me from going anywhere.
Thanks to Mat Salo and Tokasid for keeping posted, I felt as if I was there myself. Above all I appreciate that few minutes of phone conversation with Jacqui when Mat Salo passed over the phone to her and after that with Elviza which pacify me abit huhuhuhu.
That was a chance of a life time. Dunno why when things happen I am never around in KL. Been promising to meet up with Tokasid, guess I may have to go to Malacca one day to see him.

Salam Brother Shah,

Honoured to see my name, a nobody, is in the list of your friends. Looking forward to see you in person one day.

Mat Salo said...

bro shah.. are you sure mat salo was the "host"? Each and everyone of us were the hosts bro - "hosting" each other's friendship. I'm just the minyak pelicin bro.

Eh dah pergi kat Dato'Jaffar's? Ada gambaq hemsom yang sedia menawan pelayan tamu Asam Pedas.. :))

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

tumpang lalu boss...

cikgu,

for a clearer picture, i was sitting next to shah. the thing is, while i was busy checking out some boobs this friend of ours was seen chatting away. too bad, he missed out on some glorious knockers in the pricess, cikgu.

cakapaje said...

Salam Cikgu,

Yes, it was fun alright; wish you could have joined us. As for the fairer sex, my goodness, there were more than I could handle! lol! But then, my heart is unavailable now :)

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Accia,

Terima kasih :)

Likewise, I was most happy to have met all, including you, hubby and children.

cakapaje said...

Salam baez,

Oh yes, it was. I believe you would have liked it too!

The charming fella? Well, kerp and Matsalo send his regards too :)

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Pak Zawi,

We - DocTA, kerp, Matsalo and I - were hoping you, Cikgu, Pak Zabs and the rest would be able to make it. Tapi yelah, belum lagi rezeki. InsyAllah, we will meet :)

cakapaje said...

Wa'alaikumusalam Zul bro,

Most certainly your name would be included as a friend. You, are not a nobody :)

cakapaje said...

kerpie bro,

Knowing you...isk isk isk :)

cakapaje said...

Salam Matsalo,

Off course, you were the man of the show! Without your quick thinking, many would have been left without a seat! Bro, you the man...you the man!

And thank you, yes, I have checked out Jefflam's blog :)

baez said...

Kata Tak Nak said...

Kerp, I thought I saw him stole more than just a passing glance at a few pairs of agio tomango (This was what we call knockers when we were younger). Glad you all had a good time.

cakapaje said...

baez,

InsyAllah, kita kan bertemu :)

cakapaje said...

Cikgu,

Aglo tomango! Lol! What a tongue twister! :)

noorhidayah said...

i think blogs do unite people, happy to have many friends now even tak pernah jumpa.

cakapaje said...

Salam GM,

Yes, I agree with you. I guess with a common past time, people tend to be more accommodative. Next, insyAllah, I will inform you and hope you would be able to make it :)

Salt & Turmeric said...

ah wht an honour to just have my name mentioned! ;) insyaallah, kalau panjang umur and murah rezeki, dptlah kita semua berjumpa yek?

cakapaje said...

Salam Princess,

InsyAllah, jika ada jodoh bertemu, tak lari gunung dikejar. Er...or is that only for lovers? [Matilah den kena pukui ngan Mat Saleh sana! :)]
