Sabahan Bloggers Gathering 2008
Posted on 3rd August, 2008
The well organised event took place last night at the glamorous 11th floor restaurant of the Imperial Hotel Kota Kinabalu overlooking the South China Sea. The bands were cool, food was delicious, and everyone was looking groovy.
There never was a dull moment when the lively DJ Selina and her sidekick took the stage as the MCs for the event.
Obviously, everything would not be possible without the hardworking organizing committee â€“ the lovely Jacq, Gallivanter (Da Dude), Wei Chuen (you are tall), KadazanBonita (so anggun), PapaJoneh, Impedius, Julian and Farah. I think I chatted briefly with Julian (or was it Impedius). Anyway, hats off to them. I imagine it would be a hard one to top.
Meeting fellow bloggers including Sabahan.com readers face to face was an interesting experience. Iâ€™ve met Don (apparently he is one of my subscribers), Lorna (I thought you looked familiar even before we chatted), Pinolobu a.k.a Ben (I already knew you), the famous Elphege Godomon the TV3 reporter.
Then there’s Josie (the cheerful one), Eshark (sama misai kita haha), Shukery (a rather quiet but nice guy), LadyMariah (I didnâ€™t recognize you with the braids), Chegu(betulkah tu?), Sumardi and who could miss PapaJoneh, one of the most boisterous bloggers that night. Sorry Papa, I was unable to join you guys afterwards.
Iâ€™ve met several other bloggers too but canâ€™t recall their names – my bad. I shouldâ€™ve written them down like what some people did! The list will be updated from time to time.
I would have uploaded some photos if not of the crappy connection here in Starbuck. I need a more reliable wireless connection to tap into for that. I am certain youâ€™ll find more detailed reviews about this event in other blogs with lots of photos to feast your eyes on 😉
