I can’t remember how there was the four of us. Must be that Mobius-sponsored dinner last year, but I’m thinking it’s way before that, even. Sure, I’ve been seeing Mae and Liz online long before, what with their very popular and in-demand www presence, and me being a fangirl. Heh. (Joni, meanwhile, is a long-time loyaalll friend and rant-buddy.) :p I’ve always loved reading their blogs (mostly because I can *relate*), and exchanging comments here and there.
Niche-less that our blogs are, we find ourselves a common ground that is somewhere in the middle of tech blogging, and design, and SEO, and food, and music, and being 20+ish, and wellwhatever (© Oh hai, Liz!). But taking the friendship offline was even more real, and more fun. Yep.
So what type of bloggers are we, we discussed over our yummy Tender Bobs dinner at Shangrila. *Food blogger mode starts now.*
And Joni‘s order, pfffff, cheater. She skipped to dessert. :P
I know, I know. My attempt at food blogging = Fail.
Uggh. I can’t be a food blogger! I can’t even remember exactly whut we ordered! They all looked the same to me. :p I can’t remember if I enjoyed the food, all I remember is how we couldn’t stop laughing at the most un-funny things the whole night.
“If food bloggers write about food, and beauty bloggers write about stuff beautification, then gorgeous bloggers, write about their gorgeous selves and everything about their gorgeous lives.” Whoever said this must be realllyyyy gorgeous. LOL. Let’s leave that quote anonymous shall we. :P
A few things I learned that night:
(1) Liz is 29 years old, not 25, like I first thought. Hence, the three of us have decided to stop being bitter about her engagement. She has enjoyed her quarter life long enough, she deserves to get lost in marital bliss now. Also, it’s good to have her fiance around once in a while to take pictures. That’s what boyfriends are for anyway, right? LOL. Hi, Liz’s fiance. :)
(2) Changing hairdos can do wonders. If you can’t change the world, change your hair. Right Mae?
(3) I am NOT the WORST impulsive buyer in the world, thankyouverymuch. Thanks to Joni, I start to feel so much better about my impulsiveness. :)
The night ended with our empty Starbucks cups, and the realization *once again* that there’s always room to laugh and be merry when you spend quality time with the right people. I love (and hate) a lot of things about blogging (and the blogging community), but these girls is one of the things I love most about it. Definitely.
Finally, the night’s most “aww” moment has got to be this:
Liz walks to her happily ever after, while we sit on the sidelines, watching her *Mae wiping her tears, Riz taking pictures, and Joni munching on a bucket of popcorn* LOL. I guess there’s hope for the rest of us. *bitter mode OFF, for now* :)
Edit. Eh kung love bloggers kaya? :) LOL.
