At long last, I was already able to meet the CBS or Cebu Bloggers Society! I submitted my membership form first or second week of January I think and because of the preparations they made for the Sinulog 2009, they were not able to process my membership to CBS.
Luckily, this week, the membership coordinator of CBS, Evanjohnn Mendoza texted me If I was available for meet-ups, being one of the requirement to be a CBS member. I have no classes on Saturdays so I decided to schedule it at 3 PM today because my other schedules were already taken(ehem.. feeling hectic). At 8AM-12PM, I had to go to the practice for the cotillion for my friend's debut, and at 7PM, I had another business meeting with another guy. So the best time for me was at 3PM.
The funny thing was that, while I was already riding a jeepney on my way to Ayala Mall, I noticed some guy ON the jeepney bringing a laptop. At that moment, I jokingly thought that "What if he's the one who's going to meet with me??". And at my second glance at him, I noticed his shirt. I was only able to read the letters "GGER" and that time, I was like, "OMG! I have to read the entire text on his shirt!" My heart was poundind at that time while I was patiently waiting for him to "move" so I can read the entire text. And when he slightly moved, I was able to read it, "Blogger ko Bai!" and below it read "Cebu Bloggers Society". What I did?? I turned away from him and laughed at myself! I continued laughing until the jeepney arrived at Ayala Mall. But to make sure that he's really the one, I just followed him and see where it leads me. Our meeting place was at Bo's Coffee in Ayala and while I was following him, I noticed that he is on the right way to our venue. He was also in a hurry so I thought, "Oh, maybe he really is the one because he's hurrying up for the scheduled meeting!" So to cut the story short, I decided to talk to him even before we reached our venue and found out that he really is the one who texted me to meet up with him. None other than Evanjohnn Mendoza himself. He was nice and I was glad to finally meet him.
And lucky me, the CBS also had a meeting at 3PM so it was really an opportunity for me to meet other Cebuano Bloggers not just the membership coordinator. When we arrived at Bo's Coffee, another blogger, Sinjin, who I happen to know at Multiply.com was already waiting outside. We were the first three to arrive and we were able to talk a lot to each other. Then one by one, other Cebuano Bloggers came and I was excited to talk to them. They were all good and experienced bloggers. This is the list of those who came:
