Blogger Friends Meet Up

It was uncomfortably raining that day but nothing could stop me from meeting Mira, the visiting U.S. based Blogger buddy. She is here in the Philippines for vacation. We agreed to meet at Recipes, a cozy eating place in Greenbelt 3, Makati City last Tuesday. At the agreed place, I came to meet her other Blogger friends she was to meet too, couple Liz and Joel.

To be honest, I had qualms in meeting Mira in person, but those doubts vanished when I finally met her in person. Mira was so warm and charming. Quite open too! I felt like I’ve known her for a veeerrrry long time. I had a wrong impression though, before I met her. I thought she looks matured (sorry for that Mira!). So contrary to her very youthful look in person like she is only in her late twenties or early thirties. The new Blogger friends Liz and Joel were also very gracious and comfortable to be with. Liz was even sharing her blogging techniques, of which I’m still trying out in my blog until now. Her hubby, Joel was jovial and obviously a friendly person. Having those popular celebrities amongst his close friends.

When we sat for lunch, there was no stopping for our chit chats until we realized we haven’t given our orders yet. We were the first customers to arrive and funny to note that it looked like we were also the last to leave. After the sumptuous lunch, we transferred to Starbucks and stayed there till it was rush hour.

It was indeed one beautiful day spent with beautiful people! I’m very fortunate to be given the chance to meet Mira, Liz and Joel in person. I love blogging all the more. Wonderful friends abound here!

Not sure if my first message went through. Anyway, thank you for agreeing to meet with me despite the rain. It was worth the 4-hour drive from my place, lol.

Very nice meet up!

you are the light of the world said...

hi,
Similar interests, mutual respect and strong attachment with each other are what friends share between each other. These are just the general traits of a friendship.To experience what is friendship, one must have true friends, who are indeed rare treasure.

I have added you to my blogger roll, hope you can do the same thing for me so that we can have constant communication.
