The FRIM. The GATHERING.



I had fun yesterday. Eating mostly. We had all-you-can-eat-buffet-over-the-park at FRIM with few more bloggers this week, plus a few of the company from the previous one.

The meeting was supposed to be at 11am. But I've lost track of time while packing for my Mee Kari. Plus, we sort of 'lost in the jungle' to find the venue. I've been to FRIM before, err, if I'm not mistaken, 14 years ago. So, my 'google-map' skills quite limited when it comes to this place. Haha. Luckily I had Teja, Farah and Nad (eventhough she was quite emotional unstable at this time) as the signboard readers.

As I've mentioned to you earlier, we had all-you-can-eat-buffet this time. A lot of foods for a small group, I would say. I wonder where were the 'voters' who click FRIM at Dr Sam's blog. Haha. I guess we kinda have 'pengundi hantu' too, here. Or maybe, they also experience the same adventure 'lost in the jungle' like us. And never find their way home. Touch wood! Err, perlu bersangka baik selalu, kan?

I was too indulged with delicious food and didn't quite managed to catch up with TeacherSally and the Gang, November and also Meen. I wish that the day will be longer. I really hope to meet you guys again at our next 'mengeteh' session.

Anyone know what's the meaning of 'mengeteh'?

I can't help not to overheard the conversation between TeacherSally, her husband and DrSam about the meaning of 'mengeteh'. I really thought that 'mengeteh' came from a root word 'teh' or tea. Which will be used whenever we ask someone to hang out and catch up over some tea. I was wrong. Huhu. My bad.

It was hard to eat and laugh at the same time, you know. Dr Sam, Teja, Farah and Nad have their own natural talents of making me burst into laugh at any time possible. We bonded quite well for the 2nd meeting. Way to go guys. It feels like we've known each other for years. We should do this again next time. But not in this few weeks or months. Give me chances to miss you all, okay?

Thanks all for a great makan2 day. :)

zEn Eizan said...

mengeteh? pe bende tu?

Catz said...

cahaya..
setahu saya..mengeteh itu adalah bahasa jawa. yg bermakna aktiviti minum di pagi atau petang hari di kedai makan (bukan di rumah)..tak semestinya minum teh..tapi minum kopi ke..apa ke..disertai mkn roti canai...kira minum2 dgn kawan2 kat kedai kopi la...

catz
aku yg jawa.hiks.

bluecrystaldude said...

Saya bersetuju dengan kenyataan Catz di atas :):)

Wah, gathering yang menarik. I haven't met anyone from my blogging actually. Just few who already knew me before. But I am keeping an open mind though ;)

DrSam said...

I really had great fun meeting you and the whole gang that day. Hope more people (including pengundi hantu, as you put it) can join the gathering in the future. Wish to have similar gatherings in the near future (you too can be the next event organizer). Thank you for making the day a memorable one.

p/s: Could you please send me that group photo. Somehow our dedicated photographers missed to shoot using mine. TQ.

CAHAYA said...

Ad Rifza,

Best sangat. :) Jarak memisahkan ke? Yang jauh kita dekatkan, yang dekat kita rapatkan. TeacherSally itu dtg dari Kota Bahru tau. :)

---------------------------------------------------

zen Eizan,

hmm. Cahaya pun tak tahu sebenarnye. :)

p/s: Cahaya ke Kuching this Thursday. :)

CAHAYA said...

Catz,

Thanks for the explanation. It was all make sense right now. :) Ohh. Itu maksudnya mengeteh. I thought ajak orang lepas minum teh je kat kedai. Huhu. Minum air lain pun boleh eh? Kira macam hang out kat kedai minum la eh?

p/s: I wonder when will you be join us. So boleh la rasa masakan u Catz. :)

----------------------------------------------

Blue.crystal.dude,

Betul la tu maksud mengeteh tu yer?

You should start the networking dah. :) It's good to know someone at totally different background or same but with different experiences. Make your life colorful.

You can start with anyone in Penang. :)

CAHAYA said...

DrSam,

Yeah! I had fun too. :) I wish more will turn up in the future. Maybe they just ain't ready yet to make the grand step out of virtual. I don't think I'm the best person for the job. Haha. I'm not good in organizing. It will be chaos. As my punctuality do sucks big time. lol.

p/s: Already send an email with few group shots. :)

----------------------------------------------------

Dj Epoi,

Tahniah? :) Boleh la tu. Best, next time Dj Epoi leh join, bawak askar2 n wife sekali. :) Takyah terjah2 dah. :)

CAHAYA said...
