Earlier this year, or maybe it was even last year, six of us decided to do a blogger meet up and we dubbed it Asian Sensation 2011. This blogger meet up will consist of:
Maureen from a little rough around the edges
Kat from life in progress
Stephanie from A Simple Life
Reni from in her shoes
Elisse from Fur Elisse
and yours truly...
and yours truly...
I didn't want to blog about it until I knew it was really happening. Maureen and I were the last to book so now that it's all confirmed, it's time to post something about it. Maureen, Kat and Steph are from Toronto, Reni is from Portland and Elisse is from Vancouver.
*I met Maureen back in high school and even though we didn't hang out then, we became really close friends once I started dating Mike. Maureen is also known as my partner-in-crime. We terrorized the city when we use to go clubbing together.
*I met Kat in our college/University years. I met her because we partied a lot. We lost touch after over partying days were over but have recently connected through our blogs (and twitter). I'm finding we have a lot in common, celebrity crushes, TV shows and even books.
*I met Steph through Kat and Maur and we hung out at bar called Milano's. I grew closer to Steph when she started hanging out with my sister-in-law and we also got reacquainted through our blogs. Steph and I share the same pet peeves and love to make fun of people, ummm, I mean things. lol!
*Now with Elisse and Reni, I met them through blogging. Elisse was one of my first blogger friends. We probably met late 2009, just after I returned from a trip to Vancouver. It would have been nice if I met her before because then I could have met her in real life. I can't remember how I met Reni, it was probably through us commenting on each other's blogs. We found out that we had a lot in common - especially a love for Kobe Bryant.
Asian Sensation is finally happening. You might find us posting a lot about this trip leading up to July, but it's only because we are so excited. We get to party and finally meet each other in real life. I've met other blogger in real life but this is a first for me to travel to another city to meet them. People wonder - "Is it going to be weird to meet people and hang out with them considering you have never met?" - my answer is no. I feel like I really know these girls. I feel like I talk to them more than my real friends because it's like we speak to each other through our blogs and tweets. We get to know more about each other with every post, tweet or email we send. With Elisse and Reni, I feel like I have known them forever. I know that we will all get along because you follow people's blogs for a reason, just like you are friends with your friends for a reason.
ASIAN SENSATION: Las Vegas, here we come!!!!
