AMBP Gathering: Coffee Therapy for Bloggers

All Malaysian Blogger Project Gathering 2008

I attended the Coffee Therapy for Bloggers gathering yesterday, it was organized by AllMalaysian Bloggers Project (AMBP) for fellow Malaysian bloggers. The gathering was held at Starbucks in The Gardens, which was located at Midvalley City.

What’s it all about? Just to meet other bloggers and make friends. The first 50 bloggers to arrive at the scene gets a free drink, unfortunately for me I had some how thought that the gathering starts at noon when it’s actually 10am ……… ๐Ÿ˜ณ Oh well, I made it there anyway, almost 2 hours late. ๐Ÿ˜› Not proud of it, thank you!

So many bloggers, so many unfamiliar faces, so noisy, so………

Yeah, SO LATE was I too! No big deal.

After I got myself registered, I was told that there were no more coupons or vouchers or whatever you call that for that free drink. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Sad me *sob* Now THAT’S A BIG DEAL! Oh well………life goes on.

Now let’s have a look at what Starbucks look like when bloggers gather. ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a fun outing. I did get to know many bloggers.

As you can see from the pictures below, the blogger session somewhat turned into a tech / gadget / photographer gathering too! ๐Ÿ™‚

The AMBP Gathering ended at a little after 1pm. Some of us stayed back for a little chit-chat, getting to know one another better.

Now, with all that aside – here are the bloggers I met at the AMBP Gathering (in alphabetical order…. because I don’t wish to be accused of favoritism!)

Then of course those who I did not met and are there….

Did I miss you out? If I did, LET ME KNOW! (Yes yes, I’m sure there are many other bloggers that I’ve missed. Just waiting for them to show up! :P)

Thank you!
