Daphne came all the way from Ipoh with Pi Bani. Pi had sms-ed me a few days earlier that they both would be driving down here for MRT and that Raden Galoh was "cooking " something" for Daphne.
I've never met Daphne - got to know her through reading her blog. Nice girl - young enough to be my daughter - who's committed to the voluntary work she is involved in. She and Pi are neighbours and they live within a five-minute-drive away from each
And what do you know. While some bloggers were greeting one another and others tucking in their mee rebus, MarinaM walked in holding the Olympic Torch which she carried at the Olympic Touch Relay. You just couldn't imagine the excitement the torch stirred. Of course, everyone was curious and eager to touch the torch and have a picture taken holding it. (see pix below)
The mrt regulars were there but we have a recent addition, blogger Jordan, who is a sub-editor with the magazine, Tell. Oh yes, Jacqui, who has been here since early April from the US, where she has been residing since her marriage, was present too. It was her second visit to mrt. She'll be going back on Monday. Have a safe trip home, Jacqui! And to Daphne, all the best to you. We know you're gonna do us proud!
