Even larger than life in Meatspace (Mr Miyagi forget to bring camera)


So, Adri had to bugger off to the Night Safari, which was a pity, really, because that meant we were short of one very good set of brains to pick. But then, nair mind, the doyen of Singapore bloggers, Mr Brown, arrived soon after, knocking over some chairs and almost a table at Cafe Cartel before he got to the table. And what a table it was too. I got to sit next to Xiaxue, who sat next to Preetamrai, who sat next to La Idler, who sat next to Agagooga, who sat opposite Myrick, who sat next to Mr & Mrs Acorn, who sat next to The Calm One (Neh? the One, so Calm until stop blogging?), who sat next to Mr Brown, who sat opposite me. So many things we talked about, and I was in charge of doling out gossip. Everything I know about the bloggers I know is now in the reliable hands of the abovenamed. They might choose to do something about it, so stay tuned! Of course, one of the more important things we discussed was blogging. My contribution was 'how to increase your page hits', although that was only limited to 'putting up a photo of Fiona Xie'. Preetamrai, on the other hand (where there are also five fingers), offered a solution to parents who want to know if their teenage children have blogs: buy them a gift, then google 'my mother/father/parents bought me a gift'. Xiaxue, who I think makes a darn good journo/media personality with her incessant probing and baiting, contributed in her own inimitable way, very generously offering to let me feel her up. (That's when Mr Brown choked, coughed and sneezed one piece of macaroni back onto his plate, decent family man that he is). I declined, of course, knowing that if I had as much as sampled her offer, I'd be splashed all over her blog as the sleazy old bloke who squeezed her tit at Cafe Cartel. As the others would agree, you cannot buy this kind of experience, man... eh, actually, you can, but that one has got little to do with blogger meet-ups.

iTunes' party shuffle is playing a copy of: It's Just Not Cricket - The 12th Man - The 12th Man, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn't steal music.

yeah, especially her self-shots.

but she may need to watch out for the eye squints - may need to do some zero-ing on the lens target :D

You know what, Ting, I think Mr. Miyagi deliberately didn't invite both of us, because if he did that he knew he'd have to turn up in his No. 4.

No lah. I wasn't the one that organized it. But there's something in the works. Stay tuned.
