Sabahan Bloggers Gathering August 2008

Just survived the most exciting gathering I ever been through, The Sabahan Bloggers Gathering 2008 aka SBG ’08. The organizing people had done a great job, namely JACQ, Weichuen, Dino, Julian and Fara. Mel from Kadazanbonita.com and Daniel from danielfranklingomez.com came all the way from KL bringing their mystery stuffs aka gifts aka sponsorships to all Sabahan Bloggers. I believe none going home feeling sad. In fact, everyone should STILL be excited about the Bloggers Gathering and can’t wait for the next one. :D

Well, probably not that soonlah. Crazy ah. If you ask the above names again will they do it again, I’m pretty sure, the answer will be, “Hmmm… let us rest first!”. Hahahaha.

Funny thing is, when I check my camera, the only few shots I made was these two shots. One the above with the great Sabahan.com owner, si Gaman. It was my *childhood dream* to see face to face the owner of Sabahan.com. I actually want to chit chat with him so many things but somehow I end up stupid dumb that night. It was Gaman who came and started the conversation with “Kau kah yang mau jumpa saya tu?” [Is that you the person that want to meet me?]. Wahh, without any single doubt in my mind when I first saw him that he was actually si Gaman from Sabahan Dot Com. Man, I was really embarrassed that time. I was like, “Kau kah ni, ah?” [Is this really you?”] Konon. Padahal, I was like nervous gila. Hahaha. Thanks Gaman for the initiative. You are indeed a cool guy and friendly. Totally unlike me. Saya ni kunun pemalu. :P

Below our Mr. Fit Shueqry from iMotivasi.com. He went to this gathering cycling all the way from Lok Kawi like how many KMs I don’t know from the town and just found out he did it every day. I salute you my friend. So, in a way, I have no regret taking picture with you. Proud that you are Sabahan. :) [I saja tumpang sekaki ni ;) ]

That’s the only picture I have that I can see the faces. I know I have taken few good pictures with others, like Lorna, Massy, eshark and who else I forgot their names. I thought took with my camera. Man, wasted the time only. I hope I have not disappointed anyone. No valuable pictures here.

Well, just imagine. When I was about to take picture or ask anyone to take, I notice I was the only one with the cheap Sony Cyber camera while the rest … waaaaahhh, Sony alpha, Nikon big gun, Canon entah apa nama lah, in short, all the expensive more than RM2000 price tag. I quickly put back my small cheap camera back in its case. Their lens so big-big with zooming capabilities lagi. I hate those in front of my face. Not I hate the cameraman lah but they can zoom in right up to my yucky blackheads and forehead wrinkles. Itu yang malas tu. Hahaha. Just kidding guys. I love you all bah ;)

Thanks to those who came to shake hands with me. I am so proud that you all Sabahan. Unlike me. I was totally “sombong”. Not in the negative way actually. I was actually shy to meet you guys/gals. I just realized I had not moved from that awkward shape red chair from the beginning until the end other than to eat and someone who works in the school grab my hand to dance. Si Chegu Carol lah tu. Isk isk isk.

nuffnang robb chew
Got one more shot. The above is Mr. Robb Chew, Blogger Relations Executive for Nuffnang. Very cool guy. Now, you know, I have cheap camera kan :P

Thanks to Eshark, si Xander (apa sudah nama kau tu?), massy, ratu syura, shemah, osindak and siapa lagi tu ah? Aduh I’m totally useless when comes to remembering names. Now you all know, I am very bad communicator. But as soon as you got to start me talking, you wish you never meet me that’s for sure. Ask gaman who said me as “the most boisterous blogger that night” and the rest who have known me earlier. Hahaha. They regret knowing me. Hahaha.

However, still thousand apologies from me. I admit, I malu and did not go round meet you guys. I just stand up from the chair and look to other side. In my thoughts, waaaaahhhh, everyone is so young. The guys all look macho-macho and handsome, like si eshark. The ladies, waaaahhh, all young and beautiful. All dress to kill. How can I make myself go shake hand with you? Isk isk isk. Alasan lagi PapaJ. Dah confirmed I ni memang pemalu and others word, sombong. What to do lah. Maybe takut you all overrated me before bah tu. Hahaha.

Anyway, this is getting too long and boring for a simple post. Furthermore you want to see pictures and not my rambling … right? I better stop so I won’t hurt you even more LOL. Can I put something here to pay this post? Like this pet supplements?? Cannot ah? Ooookaaaaaaayyyy.

** to be continued. All the blurs, cheap2 shots in one gallery. On the other hand, you can just go to the others’ blogs. I saw few crazy awesome expensive shots and the real happening ones.

    most impt thing is u had a good time there…

  3. Looking back at the list, I saw Idremizizan’s name (of jebat.net): not sure if he attended, but if you two guy, I think it’d be like what Aznil Nawawi said last time when asked what would happen if he met Najip Ali (former Asia Bagus host): “bergegar dunia”.

  4. Finally! Don’t be worried about your camera lah Joneh. It’s the composition (positioning of subject and surroundings) that matters the most. Even with handphone camera, great pictures can be taken.

    Thanks for the pics… but I must say I expect to see much more.

  5. I was chatting with Gaman, and I told him that you were looking for him, so he was like, “Bah, jangan kasi tau dia. Nanti sia sendiri pigi sana jumpa dia.” Haha..

  6. Adedeh!! just drop by ere.. betimbun suda komen.
    Don’t worry bah! pic kurang but you still da BEST bah.

    Oh! si chegu carol ka yg pi tarik ko tuh, alala.. ligat tul dia menari tuh.
    The pic of you + gaman, I snap ba kan? We didn’t take pics together-gether wit your camera kah? Aduhhhh!! itu laba suda siok2 berjumpa mingle2 lupa mo ambik gambar, no worries, I know where to dig those pics. But sia lagi lupa bagi ko sia punya namecard yg paling power tu(ceh! kunun).. Oh! macho + hensem ka.. uiiseh! itu laba pasal sia tdk taruk my pic di my blog + my site (dehh! punya tambirang si eshark).. err.. tapi skrg sia baru tau, si gaman buli fight sia punya misai LOL..

    Sori that night during our after party (time ko siok2 ligat menari tuh) hav to leave early Bah! hav to fetch the queen. bah! anti ta aramaiti pi minum salim ah!

  8. I was so happy meeting PapaJoneh that night.

    I’ve found Papa sitting alone and when i told him my name, he really shocked.

    I’m also so happy when i have a chance to meet Gaman, 3 kali bersalam sama dia. Hihi, begagar bah!

    Gaman is cool guy, to me he is totally in control.

    From the first moment i saw him, he is so calm. No wonder he makes money sooo much!

  9. wow… bestnya gathering kamu kan… congrats sbb memang sangat2 berjaya, jeles juga bila kwn2 cerita.. next time sia inda mo ketinggalan sudah ni..heheheh///

  10. Hey nice meeting your papah finally! Kau kan sibuk masa tu melayan banyak tetamu so sia pun inda mau ganggu kau bah hehe. There will always be next time right. 3-10 set.

  11. Ha ha, I know exactly how you feel when you don’t have as good of a camera as other people! I can’t afford an expensive camera with a huge zoom lense! But I still love to take photos.
