Bloggers Booze and a Wet Nurburgring

Well yeah I went to the Blogger Booze organized by Daniel. Well apart from the sponsor issues and the fact that I didn’t load my camera memory card (so no photos from me) I did have some fun meeting a few bloggers and non bloggers. Its good to put a face to a bloggers nick…. But I must say Josh Lim of advertlets was surprisingly unapproachable… the blogger bugger had some kind of attitude …. But I guess he picks and chooses who to be nice with cos he seemed ok with “some” of the people there… anyway it was not a bad gathering of people and me and Dono got to play some pool with some of the bloggers too...

Well if you don’t know me already…. I don’t really fancy going to pubs anymore.. I hate it that the music is sometimes just too loud to have a decent conversation with anyone. And the cigarette smoke… oh how I hate that smell which eventually will get to your eyes… and your hair …and your cloths… I just don’t see the point anymore….

It does not help when the ambience is crappy and the sound system is like shit…. And worst still… the beer tasted like tap water mixed with lime juice… yuck!... I heard that the long island tea tasted bad too… anyhow… the finger food was surprisingly good and i was with good company and I got to meet some nice people too. …

Karen is down on semester break so I got Donovan (no he doesn’t have a blog) and Karen to follow me to the blogger booze. We had dinner at this mamak restaurant in Plaza Damas before going to modesto’s… The party continued at Laundry Bar around 12:30am but Karen, Dono and I went home…. Hey… it was way past my bedtime ok...


It was a good effort from Daniel… good job Dan…. read more about it HERE

Did anyone catch the F1 last Sunday…. Gosh! It was the most exciting race of this season… 2 laps into The Nurburgring gp of Europe and it starts to pour cats and dogs… actually it was more like cows and sheep…… it was so heavy at less 6 cars lost control… most managed to be lifted back on the track…. Sato almost took out the safety car with his Spyker…. And after all that chaos… it was Winkelhock, the newbie from Spyker who was leading the race.. lucky for him he had come into the pits just when it started to rain…..

The race was brought to a halt for a restart as the rain was becoming to heavy…. Hamilton who was one of the cars which lost control was a lap down but with some great driving from him… he managed to end the race in 9th place… Massa on the other hand was a useless coconut... eventhough he was leading the race in the last 5 laps... he was useless in the wet as it started to rain again in the closing laps of the race. Massa even managed to bump his car against Alonso who began to show his colours in the rain but luckily nobody lost control and Alonso pulled away for a well deserved win…… much cant be said about Raikkonen as his luck with car reliability has followed him from McLaren to Ferrari…. !!... after all this years we now know it was not the car …but the driver… Sigh!!... I’m so disappointed in him….

Josh Lim said...

Heya. Josh here.

Since you missed your camera that day, I did take quite a few pictures of the gathering, and I thought you might like to see them.

Hmm. Unapproachable, or a blithely beleagured blogger bugger? :)

Anyway, if I was paying particular attention to anyone it was because quite a few of them had some rather specific questions to ask, and I apologize for not distributing attention in a more uniform fashion.

Its not easy to take photos, settle bills, move around, drink and keep balance at the same time, haha, hope you understand. :)

Not sure who you are, but do drop me a line? Very sorry I missed the chance to talk with you, especially if you did initiate a hello!

Cheers. Our next gathering is quite different (no loud music, but well, maybe some cigarette smoke...Rumpun 07 at Nasi Kandar Pelita Ampang), so you might want to drop by.

Pixelated Mo said...

Hey there Josh... nice of you to drop by... yeah actually i wld have been fine if you did not even flick an eyebrow at me...

but the fact is I did initiate the first hello and also a ball of string Dan asked me to get for you..... U wanted it for your banners right?... well i then tried again but this time right infront of you with the string waving in my hand...

So third time shy lah...

Anyhow bygones.... thnks for the invite.
