special thanks to Simon for the group photos

Few weeks ago, I got an email from not one but two of my favourite food bloggers Chocolatesuze and Grab your fork to invite me to attend the 2010 Food blogger Xmas Picnic, I was so excited but also nervous and little bit scare as I’ve never met anyone. Looking at the attendance list there was about 60 food bloggers attending, most of them I’ve visited their blog and left a message or even tried cooking their recipe. Putting faces on the blogs was a really good thing, I met a lot of nice people and the feeling of taking pic of the food without being embarrassed is awesome because 60 other people are doing the same thing!

Few days before the party, I bumped into Chocolatesuze on the train. I know what she eat for lunch and dinner but she doesn’t know who I am. I took a deep breathe and walked to her and said hi also introduce myself. She was really nice and asked me to make sure I come on Sat so here I am. Arrived at 12’ish but couldn’t find anyone, the only person I knew was Chocolatesuze but she was late! And luckily Marvin (who I saw standing alone looking as confuse as me) was also joining the food blogger event for the first time so we walked together and start looking for them.

Marvin & I both managed to find our way to the food blogger after asking about 10 times “ excuse me, is this the food bloggers party?”
