What a weekend it had been. I was running around and meeting loads of people, which has been something that I have not done in a long time.
My Saturday schedule started early in the morning with some chores… wash clothes. Then I went and did some climbing in Summit alone… for two hours. Got back home, clean up and off I go for the BlogMob Event, a brainchild of Mobile World Mag + Samsung Malaysia. Was worried that I would be late as traffic seemed to be building up. The event was in Izzi, KL a restaurant in the Lot10 – Sg. Wang vicinity scheduled to start at 3.00pm. Har… turns out I was just in time and I plunked myself beside Jun Yan and John after I briefly introduced myself. My first two blogger friends.
We were then ushered to another area, with a more relaxed ambiance. Low lights and lounge sofas. Yes, there was food. I skipped breakfast and lunch so at 3 o’clock I was hungry. Had a few glasses of Coke and some finger food, with constant clicks and flashes of camera momentarily blinding me. I zip my way around whenever possible to avoid them. But the small space do not allow me. Haha… after a while I got used to it. Kash of Mobile World attended to each and everyone and it made the whole scene warmer. Met and introduced myself to most of the bloggers there. Initially I asked a friend to accompany and when that failed I invited my brother and gf and friend to tag along. Luckily they left me high and dry and that allowed me to move around and mingled freely. Hehe… Was half expecting to meet people in shirts and ties and nicely pressed suits. Freaky. Managed to speak to a whole lot of the organizers and bloggers.
The event started with a brief stand up introduction and with my choice seating… which was beside the beverage counter… made me an obvious choice to start with. I blabbered a bit about me and yeah, Amy, I am also left handed. Five. But the real one thing that they did not know about me at that precise moment, I was worried that no one was going to take my clean clothes in. After everyone, that includes the organizers, had introduced themselves, and vroom, off we went with Kash shifting gears and steering us to the main reason why we were there. The bloody cool phones. Have been aching to get my hands on them for nearly 3 weeks plus.
Reds for Samsung i550 and Blacks for Samsung i450.
I got myself an 8 of spades so I get to wrap my lecherous fingers around the sleek tight body of Samsung’s new i450 phone. And being my very first (and probably last time) getting a chance like this, I was feeling ecstatic. Never had I, had in my possession a brag worthy piece of technology. Not that I love boasting anyway. But hey getting the privilege to do it once a while seems cool. Kash continued to talk after that but the attention was sitting cosily in my palm so all his words was going in left and coming out right. Slide shows and presentation followed and blink… we were back to our phones. Checking out the functions, asking questions and being attended to every whims and raised brows.
More mingling, drinks, discussions and camwhoring and soon it was time to go. Did not manage to get a photo taken with each and everyone of the bloggers which I hope could be redeemed in a month’s time. I gobbled some more pizzas and eggs before I made my exit.
Went to PC Fair to clarify some questions and dinner in Desa Petaling with a buddy then home I went. Showed to my housemate, which she shamelessly camwhored a dozen plus pictures. Thought of staying home to play with my NEW TOYS but decided to join Rachel and friends for a drink in The Curve. German beer is smooth. I ordered the lightest in the menu. Shot a picture of them with the new Samsung i450 before I left. More reasons for me to lug around my camera and to mix with bigger crowds, ya.
Haha… Food4Thot, if you are still reading this, yes I purposely left you out till the ending. Were you cursing under your breath, why this little ingrate jerk did not tell the world that it was you who opened this little window so that I could get my dirty paws on a brand new Samsung phone?
Hugs… hehe… thank you my dear friend.
Yes, my housemate managed to take in my clothes but it was after the rain ravaged them. And no, I did not put them back in the washing machine. Mr. Matahari got to work on them the next morning and I am wearing them now as I am typing this. Eee…
