Meeting a blogger friend (Part 2)

Another fellow blogger who I had the pleasure of meeting is Therry from Therrysays. We decided to meet at the mall near my area. She doesn’t live in Jakarta, but she was kind enough to drive and beat the traffic to visit me. Eventually she made it to the Mall and there I found a cheerful young lady who always has a smile on her face! Once you meet Therry, she will catch your heart! I always thought that she was a lot taller than me, but she's just slightly taller than my niece, L. Therry is a sweet and shy girl, and will open up once she feels comfortable. I must admit that I was quite apprehensive about meeting this witty, a bit explosive (sometimes), very outspoken girl in the blogosphere who can move from laugh-out-loud humor to frank emotion and astute observation without skipping a beat. She wasn’t always politically correct, just being honest. But in flesh, Therry is a sweet lively young woman who is very easy to get along with.

We had a nice lunch, with lots of good conversation, and plenty of laughter. The most interesting part is, of course, our pets!! It was so much more fun to talk and laugh in person. I think blogging is a cool thing. You have done all the introductions, post entries etc. online, so face to face you can get into more interesting conversations straight away, rather than small talk. Isn't it amazing how so many of us feel like friends even though we've never met in person? We moved to the coffee shop, where the talking, the laughter, the understanding, continued and strolled the mall a bit for window shopping. We each got so carried away with our ramblings, we kind of forgot the time! The conversation eventually took off after I mentioned to Therry about the printed handbags I've been seen in one of the shop at the second floor. You might ask “what’s all the fuss about”... but to Therry and me, these bags we're eyeing is really cute. Therry chose the Dachsund's print design and I chose the one with kitty prints. We are like two grown women who can't get enough of hello Kitty or Snoopy and looked for an excuse for clinging to our juvenile...LOL! My kitty bag is large and roomy enough to easily hold everything, from camera, cellphone, wallet, tissues paper etc. Our last stop before we headed home was to the pet shop where Therry bought some food supply for her four legged baby, Micah. And I got a new collar for my cat, Suneo.

Thank you Therry, it was like we have known each other for ages. Thanks for your time , it was great meeting you and hope we can meet again in our next rendez-vous!
