Bloggers Meet

Yours truly has gone crazy. Like some adventurous little teenager, I have driven 700+ kilometres within 4 days meeting other bloggers, first north in Ipoh, then in 1 Utama yesterday.

I've managed to meet some of my favourite bloggers but for now, I shall not reveal their names.

One sad thing is that the photos taken on my phone camera turned out to be a bit blur. Dang my lack of photography skills and a kick-ass camera!

Just to sidetrack, I've realized that I've been able to go directly to a place and back without getting lost. Of course, I have to give credit to some dear friends for their simple directions. Thank God!

Do you know what's most crazy about all this? After this little meet, I was bombarded by feelings of emptiness, loneliness and melancholia, as I drove back all the way to Seremban. Is it caused by tiredness or are they symptoms of something deeper? Some regret unknown to myself? Another onset of depression?

Sigh...

Wonder who r your fav bloggers. Definitely not me cos I dun rem meeting you the last 4 days. LOL.

I have no experience in bloggers meeting. When I blog surf, I read and comment with detachment. (Except for my own friends of course.)

I have my reservations meeting up with bloggers actually. It may be different (positively or negatively) after that going to the person's blog again. What do you think?

Maybe you are just tired. Hv a good rest and take care:)

poochie, don't think so much. just jump in with both feet. and enjoy the experience. you won't regret it. :-p

jonzz, we can't have so much excitement in our life all the time. goodness, we'll burn out very soon. i guess it's normal, after the high we feel a little...empty? don't worry, that kiddo said he's coming back again soon. so, you'll have something to look forward to. and we still have all this madness going on in the blogs. year end doesn't always have to be depressing. :-p

hi there. It was good meeting you and now knowing about your blog. I think those feelings arised after such an exciting and noisy night out (noise created by yours truly, I know I know..). It's quite normal to feel that way when you are by yourself again. Try not to dwell in that melancholic feeling.

Live for the day jonzz, and tell yourself YOU WILL BE HAPPY no matter what. Go take up hobbies and activities lah, once these things occupy your time, you wont have time to feel depressed. (and stop playing computer games! :P )

kyels said...

I guess because of the fun that we had had and suddenly, you are all alone driving back home; hence the feeling of emptiness emerged from behind the curtains.

Jonzz said...

poohbearee: he he, no worries, u r on my list of fav bloggers lar. Wah, if u talk like dat, if I go Singapore, got chance to meet u all or not? if you want my opinion, I prefer to know the person too lor. Who wants to have a blogger guy who masquerades as a girl online or vice versa?

me: susahlar, I'm also one of those moody types. But maybe a bit burned out like u say.

jomel: Hi, thanks for dropping by. It was really fun. Too bad the time is so short and the table is so long, ha ha.

LM: I want a new hobby: to track down LM, HA HA HA

kyel: Hey! Thanks for dropping by. No fun to drive at night. Didn't ask for directions to drive back. Had to call a friend, LOL.

SNAP OUT OF IT and help me.

Make yourself useful boy.

Tell me how, as bloggers, we can block certain IP addresses. There MUST be a hacker way to do it. I've googled and have tried unsuccessfully - javascripts, htmlaccess stuff. There MUST be a way. YOU have to help me Jonzz. Chop Chop... get busy.

there's a world out there need saving and I'm first in line.

Las montañas said...

annie: go sign up for the internet and IP addressing for dummies course! they're offering it this month at a special discount for WA residents. Flown in guest instructor jonzz from malaysia.

poohbearee said...

Jonzz: I am flattered. hahaha. Yes lah. Will meet u. C if u come south first or I go north. Still gotto see where Seremban is on the map;p

Yes!!! I am with you. Our new hobby shall be tracking down Monty. wahahha...

Las montañas said...

shudder! better go build an improved stealth shield.

Bernard said...

I'd love to meet up with fellow bloggers. I'd like to know who writes all those great stuff i read.

Me, so enthusiatic! Speaking from experience already eh?

Jonzz said...

Poohbearie: shhhh, don't let LM hear...

LM: now, now, are we that scary?

bernard: yes, it's more fun to know the person behind the blog. Blogs become more like letters and means of catching up instead of entertainment.

Julee said...

When are you coming down to KL again? It was nice meeting you yesterday! Hope your day was good and don't feel melancholic anymore yeah?! :)

*squirt squirt*

Ianfluenza said...

DUDE... I'm feeling so bad for the abrupt departure... DANG!!!

Jonzz said...

julee: lol, i don't normally go to kl although it's so close 'cos =P i have nothing much to do there besides buy stuff. This was a major exception.

Ian: Hey, don't feel bad. You have a lot of friends who want to see you and very little time. It's not your fault. You're on a break so give yourself a break.

Annie said...

I wanna meet ya' all, who's coming for a cup of coffee? *grin*

I met up some folks after talking with them on the internet for two years and we all met in Chicago. It was a BLAST! People are SO much more animated in person. It was the best time I've ever had in my life. There was 7 of us all together I think. Chicago was the center point pretty much.

Las montañas said...

Chicago! I thought that sounds damn far from where u are.

Annie said...

It was FAR! LOL! mmm.. maybe I ought to blog about it. mmmm
