Bonding, Laughter and Intimacy

The story on the Makcik Bloggers meet went onto cyberspace a few days back. I think it was Kak Ezza who first wrote about the do and a few other ladies followed suit. I have been wanting to say something about the joyous event, but my busy schedule has completely kept me away from blogging.

Work front has been a challenge off late. Tough times call for tougher acts to keep going - where business is concern. I've been in out of meetings for the past two days. Some meetings had good outcomes, while some ended with a not so nice taste to wrap up the day with. But we must all stay resilient and brave the storm. I believe the rainbow is somewhere out there, waiting to appear when the time is right.

Anyway, on a much happier note, I'm still ecstatic and excited from our Makcik Blogger meet last Saturday. It was a blast. Nothing deterred us from enjoying ourselves, not even the heavy downpour that came halfway during our meet. Hujan rahmat, I’d put it, as it helped cool the hot and humid afternoon and permitted us to enjoy the scrumptious food spread.

One word to describe the afternoon. It was totally AWESOME. The bonding, laughter and intimacy was apparent in everyone.

To the Makcik Bloggers:

Wanshana - sedapnya kway tiau goreng & sambal tochu, makan tak nampak sesiapa lalu belakang
MrsN - anggun sungguh in that green kurung and yesss…lurv the new hair do
Zai - ayooo…both fruit tart and cheese cake were mind blowing!!
Silent reader, Zay - hey…now you have been officially accepted into the group
Madam Principal - thank you for the umbrella, Bibik & Nissa have put it to good use yesterday morning when it rained
Chahaya - you are so petite and so young, plus orang kampong…..I LIKE!!
Kak Ezza - what can I say, you show love and lots, lots of love
Bella - wooo…the roast chicken was mouth watering and you are pretty cool, sis
Jabishah - you are so sweeettttt, se sweet dessert that you brought and got dimples some more!!!
- really, really glad you made it, mana taknya even after di “bomb” many times, still you made it to my place
Aida & daughter Ainul - so happy that you managed to join us, all the effort, despite the long detour and last but not least,
my sister TM - thanks for the t-shirt, ABE complimented on it, so pass QC Inspector Sahab.

Thank you, everyone!!! Thank you for the lovely afternoon.

Dear Kay,

Thank YOU for being such a warm and gracious host (and of course to all your junior helpers that day) :) I had a great time, as all the other Makcik Bloggers, I'm sure.

Komen Pak Malim, kucing ray yg alim.

Saya sedang tengok gambar2 bloggers dekat-dekat, kata Pak Malim sambil memakai kain pelikat. Jangan terkejut kalau suatu hari, saya menghulurkan tangan saya yg berbulu, dan menyapa Puan-Puan dahulu. Oh, I think I better shave my hands (kucing ada tangan ke?) before I go out. Takut ada yg geli pulak, kata Pak Malim sambil memakai celak.

kay_leeda said...


Ahhh...no need to jeles lah, memantau from afar pun sudah bagusss. Nanti yah, I'll list out who's who of the makcik bloggers :)

kay_leeda said...

Hi Sherry,

You initiate the meet girl :) Baru lah gempaq nanti. Belum cuba belum tau. Nanti we could have Makcik Bloggers Kuantan, KL and all over the country. Boleh buat annual meet kat Stadium Bukit Jalil nanti..heh..heh.

Kama said...

Alaaah.. so this is what I had missed...! Boringnyer! Tapi apa nak buat, ada kematian..

kay_leeda said...


You are most welcome :)
Glad you had a splendid time. Empty handed?? Nahh...no worries. Kita saja nak suka-suka saja.

Madam Tai Tai said...

Kay, those who can't make it at the second gathering tak dapat MB t-shirt ke? Kita orang pun teringin jugak...

kay_leeda said...


Fuyoooo...berasap, CONFIRM!!! But sedapppp :)

Glad you had a good time :)

kay_leeda said...

Dear MHB,

Tu lah...kita kan ajak dah, but you malu-malu kucing lak. Even Pak Malim tak sepemalu you.

It's OK sis, no worries. Next meet, you come OK :)

kay_leeda said...


Napa lah tak dtg that day?? Faham, faham penat kan, so boleh dimaafkan. Simpan for next meet OK.

Nanti I free skit, I'll put bloggers names on the pics. Nak cepat babe....

kay_leeda said...


Heard that you are bed resting :) Hope you'll get better soon yes.

Ohh got MC one ka?? Isi form pls, I'll forward it for the t-shirt..heh..heh :)

Wehh...no need to malu deh!!

kay_leeda said...

Ms Hartttttt,

Di mana ibuk menghilang deh?? Sepi briyani ku, tanpa ayam bali mu tau!!!

But, no worries, we faham yr priorities. Dua kali miss, potong nama ahhhh :)

kay_leeda said...


Welcome to the club!!! Doesn't it feel GREAT to be a blogger, nak-nak lagi a MAKCIK blogger. Haa...terus dapat t-shirt lagi.

I was in Sban last Sunday, but keje tak de lain, other than eat & sleep.

kay_leeda said...

Dear Pak Malim kucing ray yang alim,

Nak buat macamana
Periuk tak sama belanga
Pak Malim tak dapat bersama
If not kita gelak terpingga-pingga

Tanya satu soalan boleh? Why shave the tangan? Turun saham Pak Malim, nanti tak boleh nak ronda malam-malam.

kay_leeda said...

Dear Kak Puteri,

No worries. KITA pasti meet up one day, InshaAllah.

Tak tidor lagi ker?? New kitty tu comel lah :)

MrsNordin said...

When I brought home the gifts I got from the MB meet, my husband went, "Wah... beriya nya! You all are really into it. Good!"

Thanks again, Kay. I'm thinking of the next agenda / meeting plan...

jabishah said...

Hello Kak Kay,

Having fun in LA? Ada ke firefly to LA tu?

Thank you for being such an awesome host to us. We certainly have to have this meet often. So looking forward to the bowling & karaoke as suggested..;-)

You noticed the dimple? Hahaha!Even my ex-boyfriend whom I am married to now never did notice that dimple!

Take care!

Lama i tak singgah kat blog Kay... rupa2nya dah lama cerita meeting ni ya.

Frust giler sb tak dapat join in at the very last minute - sb kena balik Kelantan hantar MIL & FIL home.
Then 1 week later (last week's Friday) balik lagi kelantan sb MIL had dificulties in breathing. 2 days later (last Sunday) terus buat angiogram.

Hari ni baru i rasa lega sikit sb tak pegi mana2 jauh, except gi jenguk anak kat soromban nuh..

I hope next meet I dpt hadir lah..
