What do you get when you put 100 bloggers in a room full of free food?
Lots and lots of cameras in action, of course!
The day before the Penang Bridge Marathon, I was invited by Nuffnang to attend their Orient's Voice North Malaysian Bloggers' Gathering at the Food Loft, Gurney Plaza.
It was by all measures a resounding success.
I hadn't been to a large-scale bloggers' gathering since the Blogger.SG Singapore Bloggers Convention two years ago. As most people following my blog back then would've remembered, that event was infamously immortalised by that one boobie-baring incident seen around the world .
You would have thought Malaysians are more tame and more conservative than our Singaporean counterparts. But noooo... In fact, Malaysians are WILDER.
At this bloggers' gathering, something even better happened.
Much to the delight of all the horny guys in attendance not only were we treated to a set of beautiful naked boobs, we actually had a NAKED WOMAN baring it all inside the restaurant! Just for us. Naked woman you know?!
Warning:If you are easily offended, do not scroll further.
Nah. Naked woman.
Can play violin one somemore. Dun pray pray.
I like big butts and I cannot lie.
*muah* I lub u.
Food Loft is a Marche-like restaurant located on the 4th floor of Gurney Plaza. You're given a barcode card when you walk in, then you get the chance to walk around the market-like area to see what dishes are available.
When you're ready to order, just let them scan your card and they'll bring your food right over to you.
Yes, it's almost like your local kopitiam food court.
But this one stylo a bit. Because they got sweeping views of the ocean and then got a naked woman in the restaurant.
Does your local kopitiam food court have naked woman?
Due to my limited dietary options pre-marathon, I had the spaghetti marinara. Not the best I've tasted, but it was pretty alright.
Too bad not many of us really had time to sit down and enjoy our food anyway. Everyone basically spent the good one hour and a half running around taking photos.
And MORE photos.
So much camera flashes until I began losing my sanity.
Next thing I know, I was putting on Nicole's baby pink jacket.
Pwetty or not? ^_^
Some time during the middle of our shenanigans, I was sat down and interviewed by the charismatic Cedric Ang. Some crazy guy called Daniel Ooi jumped on the opportunity and asked me to contribute my body hair to auction off for charity.
I didn't wanna do it, but this is for a good cause. So what the heck right?
I don't know whether to feel sorry for myself or feel more sorry for Nicole.
Especially when it comes to the part where she had to cut off my nose hair.
Luckily we stopped at just nose hair.
If we cut off anything more than that, you might have to pay money to read kennysia.com
See that look on my face?
That's the look of OMG-YOU-JUST-PAID-RM20-FOR-A-FEW-STRANDS-OF-MY-CHEST-HAIR-YOU-SICKO!
The funniest thing happened on the Monday after the Nuffnang Bloggers' Gathering.
Apparently, my name appeared on national newspaper The Star Metro. No, not for becoming the first overweight person to finish the Penang Bridge Marathon in world record-breaking time.
But for this.
Pardon me, but when you describe someone as being "mobbed by fans", it conjures up the image of some wild media frenzy that look something like this.
Now, compare that to the "mobbing" I received at the hands of my Penang "fans".
WALAU! Eh you "mobs" can appear more excited and less bored-looking or not!?
