Blogosphere and Beyond!

by Tes

With aching limbs (from exhaustion), I sit here in a hotel in Kuala Lumpur, eagerly typing! I am distracted by the beckoning shops outside, and can almost smell the food from the restos around the area. It’s 8:30 PM and I have not had dinner yet. We just got here from Vietnam. But exhaustion, hunger and even the call of the shops outside won’t stop me from typing. Today is a significant day. Today, our group “The Salitype Society” (TSS) is turning one! I am excited to share this short entry to mark this important day.

The Salitype Society came about because several people gave “virtual friendship” a chance. It started with a bunch of people coming together through an internet global community (friendster) and has transcended beyond. We come together to share thoughts, experiences, information, sentiments… our life. The relationship evolved from being virtual. This has been evident by the exchanges of tokens, cards, gifts, text messages, phone calls, and recently some of us had a chance to meet each other in person.

Two Saturdays ago (July 4), I met and had a wonderful time with Elsie, who brought a surprise friend –Bernard! They showed me Mall of Asia (or just a small portion of it). We had a blast fooling around at Razon’s. The Sisig was sumptuous and the Halo-halo was one of the best I’ve tasted so far. A week ago, I met Cher in Singapore. I am grateful that with such short notice, she was able to meet me for breakfast. It was the first time I tasted “Kaya toast,” toasted bread with butter and slathered with sweet (and creamy) coco jam. Yummy! (Thank you so much for the breakfast treat, girl. I really had fun!). We had ample time to get to know each other better (and boy did we talk! Teehee) It was really bonding to the max!

I believe this is just the beginning of many more equally wonderful meetings to come. I eagerly look forward to meeting every single one of you guys.

The Salitype Society has enriched my life in many ways. I’ll take this chance to say “THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR FREINDS!”

Babes, Beth, Betchai, Car, Chay, Che, Cher, Choi, Fonz, Els, Eng, Hermz, Joanie, Jon, Manoy Doro, MJ, Rose, Zen –Love you lots, guys!

May the friendship grow, bloom and flourish!

Let’s gear up for a grand get-together …. Say, on our second (or third) anniversary?

Happy Anniversary Everyone!

Mabuhay ang Salitype Society!

Special mention: Babes, we miss you much, girlash!
