My wife and I usually tend to shun events which involve lots of people. We are our own event by doing things which rarely involve other people. If we do want people to join, it is on our own terms and it is usually a dinner event at our house. This event is intimate and we would have time to talk and catch up with friends. Even this dinner event is something we haven't done for quite sometimes.
Last Saturday, it was different. We joined this event called PJ Challenge Bloggers 'K'arnival in a mall called Jaya 33. We hate going to event where there are a lot of people. This one was the same. Too many people and as we were a bit late, we did not have anything to do. Our event was at 1pm and we had 3 hours to kill. We went around watching kids doing their colouring contest. There were those who were so serious that it looked like they do this professionally and there were those who did it for fun.
These guys were serious
We were bored actually by the time it was 11++am but was not willing to drive back to our house as that will be too far and take too much time. We nearly take a spa treatment but the place was full. In the end, we ended up having coffee at one of the outlet there. Then, at 12pm, the food was served and that was when it started to get interesting as most participants for the bloggers talk were trickling in.
Queuing for the food
Then, when we joined in the Blog 411 class, both of us looked at each other and our thought was, it was a great event as we managed to catch a few of the amzing bloggers around. If you had missed it, pray that they will do it again next year as I think events like this is important to the development of blogosphere in the long run in Malaysia.
