That PPS 2nd Anniversary Bash

The Project Petaling Street 2nd Anniversary Bash was held at Charlie's Place, a little old bohemian Western restaurant next to an art gallery, located not far from KL's Masjid Jamek.
pps

I arrived at Charlie's Place fashionably late - literally - when the hairdresser I was with turned my haircut from a 45 minute job to a 1.5 hour affair. 8:30pm and the place was already bustling with bloggers. Random bloggers and readers greeted me and I shook hands with them as I made my way into the restaurant to order my food and to introduce myself to Aizuddin Danian, the selfless owner of the PPS blog portal and host of the event.

A typical conversation at the bloggers meet-up went something like this.

Blogger: "HEYYYYYYY.... Hello Kenny Sia!"
Kenny: "Ummm... hi!" *scans for name tag*
Blogger: "Its me, my name is HunnyWunnyBunnyKins [or some other obscure online nicknames]. Remember?"
Kenny: "Oh! Hi! Yea yea, I remember you! You commented before. How you doing?"

*Repeat process with 20 other bloggers*

This being my first bloggers meet-up, I was very lost until I was spotted by Niki Cheong, an old friend from my involvment with Curtin University Student Guild some 3 years ago, and a rather well-known journalist himself. Thanks for the beer, Niki.
pps

I know. Stop saying that we look like twins in this pic. Or worse, gay couple.

Its a different excitement having people commented on my entries to me face to face. A lot of people liked my Datuknametoolongitis entry. Few sent me their condolences and letting me know they cried reading what I wrote about my father (sorry!). Then there are those who told me the results they got from my 'Which Malaysian Blogger Are You?' personality test. Its all very interesting.

After the initial frenzy cleared up I began to spot some more notable faces in the crowd.
pps

minishorts, Dave "Itchyhands", Freckled Adam PeterPan, some guy I never met in my entire life, and KinkyPug Kevin

minishorts is indeed totally hot. Don't be fooled by her sweet smile and good looks, 'cos if anyone rubbed her the wrong way she has a tongue sharper than Gilette Mach3 blades that will not hesitate cutting you up into a million pieces. As a resident PPS crawler, she knows almost everyone at the venue. That girl's social network is bigger than the whole freakin' Internet, baby.

pps

Whoa! Check out minishorts' boobies custom-made top!

Niki introduced me to Adam, whom I recogised from JoyceTheFairy's blog. Adam is also a host for 8TV. Too bad I don't know what show he's presenting 'cos I don't get 8TV here in Kuching. Otherwise I'd be squealing like a little girl having her first orgasm.

pps

KinkyBlueFairy. Neither kinky, nor blue - but definitely a fairy.

Award for most glamourous babe of the night goes to Joyce 'The Fairy' Wong of kinkybluefairy fame, who came sashaying in with her red top, short skirt, sleek L.A.M.B bag in tow. Wow. Joce is the kind of photographer that looks fabulous behind the lens and in front of it.

pps

ShaolinTiger aka Shaolin Harimau aka Shao Lin Lau Hu - arguably Malaysia's favourite expat blogging geek. He's the co-founder of security-forums.com

Nolah I'm not as tall as ShaolinTiger - he was sitting down and I was standing up. I am damn ashamed to say that this guy is more Malaysian than I am, right down to him speaking with a perfect Malaysian accent.

pps

Fip, Kenny, Nessa Yeo and Lainie Yeoh.

Are they as excited to see me as I was to see them or what? I've been following Lainie's blog way before I started blogging. Hilarity is guaranteed almost everytime Fip or Nessa is featured. Those girls are so naughty you can't help but to fall in love with them.

Fip said she couldn't help but to stare at my crotch. Coming from a lesbian, I find that comment very flattering. ;)

Nessa Yeo is hot. You probably can't tell because everything she's in front of the camera, she's either making silly faces or flashing her ass-ets in front of me. Hands down, the wildest 16-year-old I've ever met - seen it all, done it all, even had a song written about her.

pps

RSF Award-winning Jeff Ooi needs no introduction.

Check it out - its the little bird and the big bird! In that order, of course.

pps

Reta, who has been reading since wayyyyyyyyyy beginning.

pps

Jolene, who posted 3 (count it, THREE) photos of my butt on her site. The devil! What is it with women and their obsession with men's butt?

I was elated to see Jolene 'cos I thought she's not gonna turn up. The SarongPartyGirl news in local media indirectly caused her conservative parents to think that blogging could lead to their daughter baring her titties on the internet. That and other reasons almost forced her to stop blogging altogether. Silly right?

pps

David Teoh all the way from Melbourne. Visit his blog for awe-inspiring photography.

I'll forever remember him more as 'That guy who made me a millionaire playing BlogShares'.

pps

Peter Tan (not to be confused with Peter Pan), the most heart-warming Malaysian blogger on two wheels.

I've chatted with Peter on numerous occasions. He's the classic example of how blogging changes one's life and one's outlook on life. Its difficult not to like this guy because everything about him is so positive. I have to admit seeing that smile on his frail face reminded me of someone of my past. Eat a little more, Peter.
pps

HB, one of the pioneers in the Malaysian blogosphere.

This is Huai Bin (HB), also from Kuching, whom I mentioned numerous times before on my blog. Later that night, he cheekily asked "We're gonna do some K, wanna join us?". I felt like replying "Nah its alright you can go ahead. I'm not very good at singing Karaoke!"
pps

I know Suanie has been looking forward to this gathering like no tomorrow.

Suanie hugged me countless time throughout the night. As you can see, I was very shocked.

Quote from her site:
"I WANNA HUMP THEM LIKE MAD DOGS! ... I'm going to have wet sweet dreams tonight."

Scary.
pps

FireAngel used the word 'fuck' a lot in her blog. Too bad she didn't say the same thing to me.

I swear I was molested by sultry FireAngel that night too. (no link to her blog, sorry) Her over-reaction cracked me up.

Quote: "HUAI BIN AND KENNY! OMG! TOO CUTE IN REAL LIFE! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE TAKE ME! I'll BE GOOD! I'll DO ANYTHING!!!!!!! PROMISE! OMG I CAN'T STOP GRINNING EVERYTIME I THINK ABOUT THEM OR MENTION THEIR NAMES! TOO CUTE IT'S SINFUL! WHY CAN'T THEY HAVE A TWIN!!!!! WHYYYYYYYYY! ARGHHHHHHHHH!"

Scary!

Amanda, whom I got to know through Jolene. And ShaolinTiger in the background pretending as if he didn't know we're taking a photo.

There's a lot more photos but I'll try not to kill my server's bandwidth, especially after I freshly upgraded it. Feel free to click on the links here.

The more formal part of the evening was the PPS Blog Awards ceremony. Mack Zulkifli was made the MC of the night, and he was such a natural entertainer. He did a fantastic job electrifying the crowd.
pps

Don't be fooled by the seriousness of his blog. This man has charisma.

Quote of the Night goes to TV Smith: "And the nominees for PPS Ping of the Year are... Sarong Party Girl: My left boob is bigger than my right boob."

I presented Simon with the Neophyte Blog of the Year award. Jeff Ooi added the Ping of the Year award to his collection. Damn that bastard. If it weren't for that Anwar dude commenting on his entry he wouldn't even have appeared on newspaper and won! What did he do to deserve that award?! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! This is so unfair I deserve to win that award and I was robbed, I tell you. ROBBED! Congratulations Jeff.

I snagged the Blog of the Year award. My balls are now officially huge.
pps

I'm glad the shirt fits, 'cos my balls sure aren't gonna fit into my pants.

To those of you who thought that I went back to my hotel with my 'groupies'. Nah, it didn't happen. :) I have my witnesses.

That's how Malaysia's largest blogger meet to date ended. It was a great night and I totally enjoyed meeting the 60 over bloggers and non-bloggers alike that were in attendance. Credit once again to PPS owner Aizuddin for bringing together and truly defining the Malaysian blogosphere. Without him, none of these would have happened.
20050630-21.jpg

When a cockroach mischievously crawled up her knee, Xav climbed all the way up the bartop.

Such diversity of people in the blogosphere. Blogs are the word-of-mouth of the 21st century, and I say it never looked so good.

So, seen anyone you fancy in the Malaysian blogosphere? ;)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Next up, Kenny ventured deep into the dark alleys of Singapore, joined a gang, and became one with The 'Hood
pps

Think twice before you cross two of the baddest rappers of Singapore - 50 Seng and Snoop Doggy Cow.

Peace, duuuuuudddddeeee!
