I was given the honor to attend as media for this prestigious event all thanks to Tammy from Plusizekitten.com :-) Thank you so much for the invite Tammy! and not forgetting Adeline and Heidi representing Guardian for the warm welcome at the registration :-)
Bumped into a few friends at the event as well ! lol, some of them i didn't expect to see :-) Like Esther Lai and Cik Lily putih ! Glad meeting up with you gals again after so long :-)
They day started off quite horrible as i forgot to RSVP! and only realized 3 hours before the event and there wasn't any direct contact number of the person in charge, so I panicked! @_@ Lesson to be learnt, always read the E-invitation TWICE oTL me and my klutziness *slaps self*
And when i arrived at the Kelana Jaya LRT, waited nearly an hour for the Tropicana Mall shuttle bus but it didn't show up :-/ Seriously Kelana Jaya station has the WORST bus hub ever. Every time i go there, i end up taking the taxi instead of waiting fr the bus because the bus takes hours to arrive! :-/
Okay..back to the waiting for shuttle bus (an hour, no sight of any bus) so I decided to get myself a mineral water from the 7-11 convenient store(directly above the bus stop) and it wasn't even more than 5 minutes i walk back down to the bus stop to continue waiting..and i somehow had a bad feeling i missed the bus (But i didn't see any pass by while i was purchasing my mineral water!)
Couldn't brush off that gut feeling so i asked the guy beside me whether the shuttle bus has passed by. LOL and guess what? It did. like a minute before i walk back down to the bus stop...I went WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was when i was about to give up and just go back home because the event was starting in 10 minutes ~_~
Called up Jaslyn (Chibineko) to tell her i was not going anymore and by luck she hasn't left the office yet and her office was nearby Kelana jaya! Huzzahhhh!! Savior is here! :-P
Thank you so much Cheebs! You are a real life saver *huggies*
