Meeting bloggers

Even this was not my 1st time meeting bloggers, but I still feel so excited yesterday. We had our meet up yesterday at Mid Valley KL, and I'm so happy to know 9 new friends in only one day. Who say blogging is not good!

Honey Bee Sweets said...

Hi Sonia,
It's so great to meet you in person. Generous and easy going! I just wish me and Reese didn't have to rush off so soon. ;P Thanks so much for the Bat Kut Teh! For the longest time while I was in Malaysia, we have only come to know the famous Klang Bat Kut Teh only during our final 4-5 months stay. And have only drove there twice to taste the famous Teluk Pulai Bat Kut Teh. But now I get to try out the one you gave me...in Singapore, heehee. Thanks so much! Hope we can get to meet up again in the near future...will get something nice from Singapore for you then. ;)

Ju (The Little Teochew) said...

Hi Sonia, this is wonderful! But who is who? I can only recognise you, Gert, Elin and Swee San. ;)

petite nyonya said...

Hi Sonia, it was SO VERY nice to finally meet you yesterday! You're such a lovely & likeable person and am glad we all had a very enjoyable time. Sigh..I also must change my camera leh. So, looks like you want a KitchAid, and I want a camera!! Haha.
p/s I so look forward to cook the bak kut teh spice you gave. TQ so much! And you are most welcome with the flower..it was just a small gesture :)

Rachana Kothari said...

Thats such a great idea to meet the other fellow blogger friends!!! How exciting!

Gertrude said...

Hi Sonia, it was great meeting up with you and the rest of the wonderful ladies. I had a great time chatting with all you ladies. Thank you so much for the bah kut teh and the bunga telang. I will try out the bah kut teh once I go back to US and looking forward to make some pulut tekan with the bunga telang too :) Hope to see you again hopefully next year :)

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Reese, yes, you are right, call me if you feel like want to have a partner for shopping at One U, hahaha..

somewhere in SG, let me know if you will be around in KL next time.

Ai Wei, next time I call you to join ok.

Zurin, next round I want to meet you.

Bee Bee, you are most welcome, quickly try out the BKT, hope you will like the taste of this BKT.

Ju, you can know who is who by looking begin from left at the 1st photo.

Petite Nyonya, hope our wish will come true very soon..

Rachana Kothari, Thanks for stopping by, yes, this is a exciting meet up.

Gertrude, you are most welcome, hope to see your pulut tekan post, see you next year.

Pei-Lin@Dodol and Mochi said...

Sonia, it was such an honor meeting you & the other ladies! My intuition was right: You're one motherly and very outspoken woman! Kudos to you! Honestly, when I was with you that whole time though I was sitting at the opposite end, I could see you're warm & hospitable. It felt right at home the moment I approached you before MPH & Secret Recipe! (Sorry for my ignorance at that moment, I was just a bit nervous. LOL!) Thank you for the bak kut teh mix & red packet! I still can't get over the fact that I went for the meet-up empty-handed! I promise I'll fix somethin' for you & your family because I'm hoping this won't be our first and last meet-up!

I don't think I've shared with you much on photography! Please! I'm so, so embarrassed! And believe me when I say I'm not that good because it's a fact that there are so many others out there who outdo me behind the lens. Sorry about that! I'm still novice in photography. I do believe styling is crucial for food photography. And I think you're getting a hang of it ... Trust me. =)

Once again, thank you for your generosity! Maybe we shall hang out together to shop and whatnots. Age gap ain't bothering me because surprisingly, I tend to know more people who are not younger than me, LOL! I learn a lot from the experienced.

Take care till then. Have a fabulous week ahead.

Happy Homebaker said...

Hi Sonia, what a great floggers gathering! It must be a wonderful feeling to be able to meet people who share the same interest...baking, cooking, and blogging. Even though I am not there, I could feel the joy from the smiling faces of everyone of you. Thanks for sharing this post, I am finally able to put a face to the wonderful blogs that I have been following :D
