She set foot on her homeland last Saturday night and was welcomed in a satay 'reception' at Kajang. Thanks to Dr. Syuk for picking her up at KLIA and sent her straight to the satay gathering.
The theme of the gathering was supposed to be pink but many of us didn't have pink shirts. We settled with red instead. It's my first time meeting Dibah, a sweet lady who brought us cupcakes with our names written. She's the one holding the camera.
Everyone was so happy to meet up with Pinky in person, finally. Pinky asyik bercakap nak makan satay banyak-banyak..... tapi kita kira-kira... lorr..... 6 cucuk je. That's her max, but was nothing campared to Bud's 40 cucuk! Beat him if you can.
The night was filled with joy and laughter. Beside the satay, fresh golden kiwi and assorted NZ chocolates freshly flown from Christchurch were also served! Buat susah-susah je Pinky ni.
Abg Bear dapat hadiah apron New Zealand, hadiah dari Pinky ni sesuai sangat dengan Abg Bear. He looked great in this 'outfit' and was even requested to do catwalk. He had became the focus of the cameras and flashes in an instant.
The cupcakes was marvelous. Thank you Dibah! (gambar ni curik dari facebook Dr. Syuk. hehe)
See, my name written on the cupcake.
The gathering was the biggest bloggers gathering I'd ever attended. Eleven bloggers all together.
Here're the ladies (L to R): Dibah, Pinky, Pinky's friend (sorry x sempat berkenalan), the Female Dr. Shah (I got confused at first), and Pinky's younger sister DikLa@Suhaila.
The guys: Hazman, Ah Josh, Dr. Syuk, CL (He sat beside Pinky in the flight, and Pinky invited him to join in since he's from Kajang. And the surprising thing is, he's my church member! what a surprise!), Budlee, Dr. Shah, Beruang Madu and Wahdi. Adnautica was not in the pic as he's the photographer.
Pinky was like the santa claus of the night, giving away souvenirs and presents to all who're present. And she got this cute NZ teddy bear for my wife. The teddy bear had become Mr. Blackie's (from NewCastle) best friend. Pinky, my wife love it! Thanks on her behalf.
These were for me: A beautiful plaque and a pack of Teasme peppermint tea. Thank you very much Pinky!
Thousand thanks to Budlee for the arrangement, and also to Pinky sebab belanja!
Wow, what a night!
