It’s all about Eugene

Remember I blogged about the phone call I got from this dude earlier this month? Finally I met him in Penang. I was sitting at the Beach Bar with Darling and Ethan when I got his call informing me that he was already at the beach. I stood up to look for him and as I turned around, there he was to my left, walking towards me.

He greeted me with a big, warm hug and with even a bigger, warm smile :) We sat there and chatted away before I brought them up to check out my room. Eugene being Eugene, the first thing that came into his mind was if the room comes with a long bath! :P

Our first meet up on the very first evening I was in Penang.

Second meet up on the second day. Sorry Phobee, you were swimming too far away when this picture was taken :D
Third meet up on the third day :)
We went out for lunch together on my final day in Penang. Being tired and all, I couldn’t recall where I ate. I only remembered Eugene telling me that Claire blogged about this place before. After lunch, he led us to Queensbay Mall where he got his first ‘celebrity blogger‘ experience. Read about it here and also his version of our meet up here.
Eugene, it was nice meeting you and your lovely family. Thank you for all the calls to ensure I got to where I was suppose to be and do what I was suppose to do. You are really.. one GREAT friend :)
