You're Invited!

Hi! I’ve been thinking about this for a while but I don’t know what the response will be like. But I shall attempt it anyway, and I hope I will get a positive feedback.

I want to meet my new found friends ~ the makcik bloggers, the commentators, the anonymous or whoever that is interested in meeting new friends over a cup of tea or two on a Sunday afternoon. I feel that since we’ve been exchanging so many stories and comments in each others’ blogs, it’ll be nice if we could finally meet up and put a face to the picture/story. Yeah, sure… I’ve seen some of your photos, but meeting you in person will be something else, isn’t it?

I’d love to meet Ezza, MA and Auntie Yan. I think these 3 ladies are wonderful. Kak Teh, too (unfortunately, she’s so far away, so we can’t invite her. Hee.. hee.. sorry Kak Teh!).

I’ve met Busymum (I think she’s superb!), but the rest, I don’t know. Well, I do know Mdm Tai Tai, Superwoman, Tireless Mom, Aida, Waterlily, Shana and Ibu... but I haven’t met some of them in a long time either.

I’m also curious to meet Jabishah, Myheartbleeds, Ms Hart, The Principal, Kayleeda and everyone else who have dropped by in my blog. I think it’ll be great if we all can meet up coz I’m sure we’ll bring the house down (wherever the meeting place will be lah).

On another note, Mdm Tai Tai is coming back to KL for a short while in mid-Dec and she’d like to meet you all too. She said, it’ll be a great birthday present for her when she turns 41 on 17 Dec. So that's a good reason to meet ~ to celebrate a friend's birthday party! Yeay!!

So, what say you? Are you game to meet?

I propose this:

Date : Sunday, 21st Dec 2008
Time : 3-5pm
Venue : Melting Pot, Concorde Hotel, KL (atau yang sewaktu dengannya)
Cost : Bayar sendiri2lah, ya? But I don’t think it’ll cost more than RM50 each.

Actually, we can also do a Pot Luck party at my house, but kalau kat rumah, susah sikit nak bersembang lama2 sebab budak kecik kat rumah tu sure akan merengek nak attention. Perhaps for our next meeting boleh buat kat rumah, ok?

So, kepada nama2 yang tertulis disini (dan sesiapa saja yang berminat), tolong beri jawapan anda, ok? But if you don’t feel like revealing yourself and prefer to remain anonymous, I respect your decision. I’m just trying my luck.

I look forward to your favorable reply.

Thanks & Cheers!


p/s I welcome any other suggestions.

Mrs N, kak teh nak ikut!!!!! I do want to meet all of you too. Actually, I have been thinking a lot about going home now sebab nak tengok mak. kalau tak december ni - Insyaallah March. So have fun and kalau masih ada energy, we meet up in March.

wanshana said...

Count me in!!!!

Yes, memang naaaak sangat jumpa all the regular makcik, kakcik and dikcik (borrowing Gina's terms)bloggers kat sini.

It'll be great, BJ :)

busymum100 said...

MrsN,

I'd love to join in. It'd be great to meet up the other ladies (I've only met Jabishah, form an e-group's gathering). Ja, it's been over 2 years, I think since we last met.

So far the day is clear, but having a DH like mine, you never know...

So count me in. But I'll really confirm it 3 days before the actually day.

Ezza Aziz said...

Ok ,boleh saja...
ni kekadang boleh mimpi bersua dengan you all semua..

Jar macamama!

kay_leeda said...

Oh yess...would love to meet up!! Count me in. It's definitely gonna be a date with all mak, kak, dik bloggers.

Excited dah ni.. :)

Aida said...

BJ,

I'd love to join in the fun esp with Gina around but that day is my Ainul's 4th birthday. I guess I'll have to read about ur meet in you blogs then.

Aida - I've heard so much of makcik bloggers meets, esp from Aunty N dulu. hehehehhe

Hi! Mrs Nordin:

I accidentally jumped into your blog just now. And two questions to ask? Are you kak yati, Shariman's sister? Your sister in law, Sarinah? If no, I am so sorry, I've got the wrong person...
But if yes, kindly reply and I'll tell you more..and of course reveal myself!
Thank you! And sorry again if I've got the wrong person...
By the way...so interesting blog you have...keep up!

shikin aka mdl said...

Hallo, I ni lebih silent reader tapi your blogs (merangkum semua yang disebut di atas) are my must reads! I seberang tambak nun. Kirim salam kenal-kenal. Tolong upload gambar ye, so boleh lah kita tumpang meeting gak

ms hart said...

Alamak!!! Mahu tapi maluuu!!! Tak tido malam lah lepas ni pikir baju apa nak pakai?!!!! ha ha ha

p/s I pun macam Kak Ezza - pernah mimpi kengkawan mak-mak bloggers!!

MrsNordin said...

Hi all!!

This is great! So far the response has been good. Tak sangka you all feel the same way about meeting!

Ok, I'm waiting for a couple more people to confirm their attendance before I book the place. I'm so thrilled!

Thanks again!

MrsNordin said...

Kak Teh,

Hee... hee.... nanti we'll pose one especially for you, ok?

Sure, whenever you're back, we'll try to meet up. Puteri pun is still on haj... perhaps the second round will be with you two. Karaoke date? Haaa.... I'm keeping that date open for you all, tau! I want to hear you sing "Yesterday Once More"!

MrsNordin said...

Shana,

Great! Ramai orang nak jumpa you ni, tau... :)


Busymum,

I sure hope you can make it. But yes, I know your DH's travelling style, so we all shall bear that in mind. But it'll be great to meet up again with you. I look forward to that!

Selamat Hari Raya Haji!

MrsNordin said...

Ezza,

Sampai mimpi2? Very soon, your mimpi akan jadi kenyataan, ok? I can't wait to see you!


Kay,

Yeay, I'm glad you're game for it! I'm very excited too! We (I mean, me & Mdm Tai Tai), have been saying how different you are from you sister. This, we perceive through your blog je lah... So we shall see if our perception is correct on that day! (we could be wrong..)

MrsNordin said...

Aida,

Oohh... sorry you can't make it. It's ok, I'm sure we can meet up again at another day. Anyway, your office and mine is just sepelaung saja... so we can also meet up anytime we want.

Selamat Hari Raya Haji to you and family! Take care!

MrsNordin said...

Hi Anon,

Yes, you've got the right person! I'm Shariman's sister. Are you friends to Shariman or Sarinah? (eh, actually their names are alike, kan? I never realised that before!)

Now that I've confirmed my identity, you tell me yours, ok? Take care & thanks for dropping by.

MrsNordin said...

Hi Shikin,

Salam perkenalan to you too! You live in Singapore? That's nice... Kalau kat KL boleh join the meeting, kan?

Anyway, if you want to join us, you're most welcomed. Air Asia murah saja maa.... or drive, or train... just pick which travel mode you want.

Take care!

MrsNordin said...

Ms Hart,

You pun termimpi-mimpi jugak? Hee.. hee... itu tandanya kena datang tu!

It'll be great. You shall be known as Miss Ayam Bali! Habis tu.. dah ramai orang try resipi you!

Baju apa nak pakai? Yang lap lip lap lip, ada ka? Heh, heh... baju lain kira lah. I'm sure you'll look lovely in any outfit you wear! I can't wait to see this girl who used to roam the corridor at Yellow House in TKC, but I can't recall how she looked like!

Madam Tai Tai said...

BJ,

Great!! Thanks for making this possible. Yup..definitely a wonderful 41st birthday present for me.

I can't wait!

nj said...

Salam
Kak Yati..it's me Normawati...(the anonymous tuh!) hahaaaa... I knew it it is you tapi takut juga sebab almost 8 yrs tak jumpa you...remember MOM 5/UIA , kak yati tutor kami berempat Accounting masa 1999 tu..you r our senior by one semester... You were a great tutor dear! And then we met the last time at Kak Jah Lailawati's house for raya back then 1999...
Great to see you here dear. Actually u dropped by at Cik Peesha's blog (Pensyarah? Biar betul?) Then when I read your comment...I jumped into your blog...eh eh...cam ku kenal aje wanita itu!...
Ok kak yati ... panjang pulak comment ni...satu dunia tahu plak...cite cite lama...
Ok..later dear!

nj said...

forget something...to answer your question ... I am Sarinah's , Shariman's and your friend too la...
ok...
ummm...am I considered invited to your gathering too?? Nayyy...just kidding!

MrsNordin said...

Hi Normawati,

I sure remember tutoring a few students back then for Accounting but forgive me, it's been a long time and I can't remember which one is you. Kak Jah? The name rings a bell but still, I can't recall the face. It's been too long lah and my memory is fading me. Umurpun dah tua lah, not young like you!

But I'm glad you still remember me. Hey, this invitation is open to all. You're welcome to attend if you want to! I'd sure love to see you again.

Take care!

p/s btw, why your blog's writing is too small? I'm finding it hard to read the postings tho' it does look quite interesting. Pakai font size besar sikit lah... easier for makcik like me to read!

MrsNordin said...

Gina,

I hope I'll be able to pull this one for you! :)

myheartbleeds said...

MrsNordin!! Thanks for putting me on the list... you know, I had wondered before how it'd be if all the makcik/kakcik/dikcik bloggers met up... and now that it is going to come true, I can't join in pulakkk...

I'll be in langkawi insya-Allah for a work-related workshop (sigh)... hujung2 taun pun nak buat workshop... tah apa2 tah...

you guys are definitely going to rock the house!! am sure you are going to have lotsa funnn!! jelesnye...

tireless mom said...

Hi MrsN
Too bad. I will be in Phuket. We are arriving back on the same day. Don't know whether sempat to make it to the meet or not. Tak pe, if I can't come, I still can read it from your blog or get an update from Kay. You and MTT are right, you will definitely find Kay different than the sister!

the principal said...

So far I'm ok with the date....

OMG! Nak pakai baju apa? Shd I buy a pair of new shoes? Shd I pierce my ears? Shd I buy bling bling tudung? Shd I ....

On 2nd thot...Que sera sera...

nj said...

Oh my! If I describe myself 9 years back...uhmm you'll be pretty shock to see me now!...Dulu slim...sekarang slam! hahahaaaaah!
How can u not remember Kak Jah..petite, wears glasses, lives in Taman Melati, Gombak...back then you were driving your dark green Wira to her open house, I came with my husband and we ate at the same table...remember? Me..ala..yang kiut miut dan 'gebu' tu...dulula!...skrg kiut jugak...'allignment' je lari sikit... Remember, there were me, kak jah, kak anidah and one chinese lady...couldn't remember her name. And I'm sure you could also remember Norzaidi Daud (your batch)....he is a prominent one at UiTM Shah Alam tau...head of the Research Department.
I'm sure Sarinah has mentioned about me because she is my colleague dear!...we are close friends you know! She'll be coming back to Dungun end of this year.
Anyway, anak you ada iras-iras si Hafiz Sulaiman, Shariman's son...

Anonymous said...

... and what about the guys. Can they be included as well?

farizahb said...

Have fun y'all - a room full of makcik bloggers? What could be more fun?

Waterlily said...

Aiseh...why lar i have to miss this up! Last time you ajak to meet up I cannot make it coz clashed with another do elsewhere.

Err...can do video conferencing ah?

Superwomanwannabe said...

Hi BJ

I will try to be there - will not miss it for the world- but terrified as will meet ppl who (if they readme lah) would already know what Im REALLY like so takleh lah pretend cool or elegant gitu hahahahahaha

MrsNordin said...

Myheartbleeds & Yatt,

Alah... sorry you are unable to come. Never mind... there's always another time, I'm sure of that.

Salam Aidil Adha. Hope you and family will have a good one!

MrsNordin said...

Principal,

Just come as you are lah! Apa pulak nak beli2 baju baru... I can't wait to see you, actually. Nak jumpa mana satu budak junior yang share the same dorm with me, Intan & Dada last time... hee.. hee...

Take care!

MrsNordin said...

Nj,

You still remember my green Wira? Oh my... you sure do have a good memory bank!

Taman Melati? You came with your husband? Geez... honestly, I can't recall! That chinese lady must be my classmate that time, but even her name pun I tak ingat! Teruk lah I ni...

I remember NorZaidi, tho'. We used to do assignments in one group. I'd love to get in touch with him again. My eldest daughter is in UiTM shah alam now. I'll ask her to look out for him.

Btw, are you in KL or Dungun? Kalau KL, pls join us if you're free.

Do keep in touch!

MrsNordin said...

Anon,

This invitation is open to all. The more the merrier. Sure you can come along, provided you tak segan lah nak join all these makcik2! Hee.. hee...

Pls indicate if you wanna come so I can include you in the headcount.

MrsNordin said...

Farizah/Waterlily,

Whenever you're back in KL, do let me know so I can make another arrangement for you both. I'd sure love to meet you, Farizah!

Waterlily, next time you're back, do give me an advance warning ok, and do try to squeeze me in your busy schedule! The last time I met you was in Apr'06 (before I gave birth), now Nizzar dah 2.5 years old! That long...

MrsNordin said...

Superwoman,

What do you mean "pretentious"? Your blog is one of the most honest, down to earth, blogs that I've come across and it typically depicts your true personality. There's nothing to worry about, ok? Unless you want people to think you are some high-society woman lah... (which you can also pass off with your extensive pearls collection!) Hee.. hee...

You must come with me! No excuse! Can bring Dad of Four & Kitchen Guardian... if you like...

YOU MUST COME WITH ME! I don't care!

wannor aka ur stf junior said...

Kak BJ,
As at today, pls count me in ye..Teringin nak jumpa u all which I kpt track thru you all punya blog.

p/s me and my anak dara kecik ye...

wannor said...

Alamak ..bukan kpt tp 'keep'. Typo error.

MrsNordin said...

Hi Wannor,

Sure! Thanks!

bella said...

Hi, this is a great idea!

Busybody

zaitgha said...

Mrs. Nordin,

MrsNordin said...

Ibu,

Please do!! Ask Ayah to look after the kids for a while lah... or ask them to go shopping at KLCC / Pavillion while you meet up with us. I'm sure he doesn't mind... :)

MrsNordin said...

Bella/Busybody/Zaitgha,

Yes!! Please do come! The more the merrier!
