We have been planning this meet up since Quinn suggested a month ago. She was the organizer and after all the ding dong emailing each other , we finally fixed the date and time and we met up at Madam Kwan's on the 27th February. This was my second meet up with other food bloggers . To meet them in real person was truly an experience I would treasure forever. Gifts exchanged and these sweet young gals received ang pow from the married ones but becoz I forgot to bring the red packets , these sweeties took home less one, LOL!
There were 11 of us. We knew each only through reading each other's blog and leaving comments on each other blogs...that was how we knew each other online . But now facing each other in real person was another thing! But the beautiful thing was we clicked and in no time we were chatting like old buddies, wow...chatting like we have not seen each other for years :p
Our table was the most noisy one I think LOL! I guess we didn't even realize it haha we were too engrossed with topics that was interesting...from photography to food * wink as you can see from the photos below, how engrossed we were...two groups, different topics and I was the luckiest one coz I was seated in the middle and so I get to hear both sides talking. One moment I was listening to Gertrude's conversation with Pei Lin and Piggy gal and the next moment I was in conversation with Sonia , Swee San, Bee Bee and Reese on my right and after a few minutes I was chatting with Quinn who was seated opposite me. I had swell of a time with these beautiful young ladies and I am looking forward to the next meeting with them...most probably next Chinese New Year ...LOL!
