Wow…yesterday I have attended the 1st bloggers’ gathering ever. I must say it was exellent! A big thank to the organiser Webmaster Malaysia and sponsor- “Malaysian Godaddy” – Exabytes . I was there about 10 minutes before the “official commencement time”, surprisingly, I was the 2nd earliest attendee, just after MENJ.
The advantage of arriving early was that you always have the chance to mingle with the popular guys before others do.
The event started around 3pm with an overwhelming crowd of approximately 60 people.
Malaysian SEO expert, Lim CS was the MC.

It followed by Najib sharing about the CMS open source, Drupal.

Then came with the exciting sharing by the well known – Malaysian Home Internet Enterpreneur, Gobala Krishnan.
During the Q & A session, I was the 1st one to post question. I asked a question whereby no one is able to answear me. Wah! Am I smart? haha! (no lah). You must be curious what did I ask? ok lah, I asked “what is the current approximate number of bloggers in Malaysia?”
Although, I couldn’t get any answear to my question from the floor but being participated in this session, I won again a RM50 voucher from Exabytes.
After the Q&A session, we have about an hour to do networking and were treated by the generous Exabytes with free flow of Starbucks’s drink (any drink) came with the delicious refreshment. Yummy!
I have met some great bloggers during the networking session.

The story is not end yet, to tell you the truth, actually I just went to Starbucks last Saturday (9.11.2007). Why? err…I have actually mistaken the bloggers gathering date. When I arrived about 2pm on 9.11.2007, oops….the palce was abnormally quiet. I realised that some thing must be wrong… without 2nd thought, I called up Larry to verified the date of this gathering and was informed that the actual date was in fact next week 17.11.2007 (which is yesterday).
I think I should use the RM50 exabytes voucher to register a new domain name called www.BlurEddie.com for myself….
