The LARGEST Bloggers’ Gathering with GATSBY Deodorant Street Fair

Remember I blogged about Gatsby not too long ago? If you don’t, please read it here. I’m being polite there. I’m TELLING you to read it again. Why? Because that is one of my most precious entry ever. I love it so much I’m declaring that post AWESOME :D

Anyway, that entry made me RM50 ‘richer’ and also gave me the opportunity to attend the Gatsby Deodorant Street Fair- The Largest Bloggers Gathering @ Berjaya Times Square.

I, together with 500 plus other bloggers made it into The Malaysian Book of Records for “The LARGEST Bloggers’ Gathering” organised by Gatsby and Nuffnang @ Berjaya Times Square on the 17 April 2010! Woo hoo!

The first friendly face I met at the event. Who else if not Nicholas Chay :) Nic, I have to ‘blur~kan’ the surrounding of the pic as my baju too sexy there! :P
da submerryn, *fourfeetnine*, Timothy Tiah and Josephine

Just so you know, it’s official! da submerryn is taller than *fourfeetnine*! I’m taller by at least… 1mm! :P Timothy even exclaimed, “Hey, you are taller than her!” :P

I have a question here. Who ever came out with that red tee for us bloggers? So NOT sexy… *shake head*

da submerryn and Niki Cute.. err.. I mean Niki Cheong! Gosh, he’s so cute! I just can’t say enough of that! :P

Just so you know, I don’t admire him just for his cuteness. I admire him for his writing skills and everything else that comes with it. Read his column in The Star, you’ll get what I meant :D

Some of the games I tried my hands on. Actually I tried everything there except the changing tyres part… *sweat*!
Darling the superman. One hand carrying Ethan, the other hand trying everything else there :)
Look at Ethan. Just refused to let go of Daddy!
Finally he got to try his hands on something. Future Tiger Woods? Golfing terms I mean…
Oh, I’m so glad I bumped into Josephine. I got to try the Gladiator fight! Of coz, I lose…
I even tried abseiling? Is that what we call that? (Pic up there)
Latest (added on 19/4/2010) iamthewitch commented that the above is NOT called abseiling and I googled and found out that abseiling is the controlled descent DOWN a rope. What I was doing there was going UP the wall and yes, witch is right. It is called…. Wall climbing! As simple as that! So very the bodoh~lah me :P Thank you Witch :)
And woo~hoo! I officiated the bull! lol.. I was the first to ride on that bull! Look at da submerryn, she’s doing it all wrong! Look at her feet on the bull’s horns and both hands on the rope! One hand only~lah girl! And next time, PLEASE, feet off the bull’s horns :P
Darling did the abseiling too… He was so happy to reach the top! :)
The items we redeemed with the points that we won :D
Here’s a very short video of ME doing the rodeo ride!

And here’s a video of Darling doing IT! :P Darling had never looked so macho! lol..

Well done Nuffnang for another event nicely organised :)
