Carmen's House Party With Bloggers

Still remember a Fried Oreo Party which I attended back in April 2011? If not do check out my past writeup here for a refresher. (Oreo Party Gathering At Carmen's Place) A couple of us, KL bloggers decided to organize another similar pot luck event, and invited fellow bloggers to join in the fun. This time around, we had Edwin to prepare his homemade macarons and sweet desserts which were awesome to say the least.

Sweet sweet Macarons for the party



So there I was, arriving just in time to see some macarons being served, as well as some sweet "egg-like" dessert being burnt by a "burner". Carmen's house over in SS2 was huge enough to fit more than 25 bloggers in the living room. It was a good feeling to see so many familiar faces among those that attended. The best thing was, every one of us there were bloggers, happening friendly bloggers.

Edwin burning the Creme Brulee. It tasted really good, sweet and creamy.

We had an assortment of food, candies, drinks, and snacks. This was a pot luck event, so everyone had a role to play in bringing some food. Check out below on a couple of shots I managed to take of the food before the feast began. Good food are meant to be shared, and share we did as everybody had the chance to savor everything.

#4 Expensive but delicious Mille Crepes from Food Foundry (RM100+ per cake)

So there we were catching up over good food, drinks, pillows and games. You heard it right, pillows and games, the whole living room was littered with pillows of all shapes and sizes. For the guys, we have the opportunity to play some cool guitar Wii video games. Played out on a large LCD screen with a good sound system, I myself found the urge to buy a Wii video game system for myself.

Some pretty sophisticated video games
What fascinated me was the fact that even though we were from different backgrounds and cliques, put a group of bloggers in a room, and everybody was everyone's best friend. Happy times indeed, there were numerous sharing sessions. As for me, I was glued to the video game which I found to be really sophisticated and cool. Check some of the photos I managed to take of the blogger that attended the pot luck that night. Happy faces everywhere.

I had to leave early that night, but I heard there were more drinks later on that night. For me, this was a good way to fostering friendship and getting to know our fellow bloggers better. Looking forward to the next gathering!
