Top Ten Reasons you did not attend the Bloggers.SG meet

It sure seems like the Bloggers.SG 2005 convention was a success. The local media called it a “yawn” (The Sunday Times, 17 July 2005, p.4) but I’m sure all of you know whom to believe. Not all local bloggers could make it to the meet. I was thinking of what excuse one could give and here is a small list from which you can choose….:p

10. You wanted to keep your online identity secret

9. You were scared that ISD officers would swoop down of the convention and arrest everyone

8. You followed the gahmen’s advice to “look forward” from the NKF saga that you forgot about the meet.

7. You were scared that you would not be able to resist the temptation to hug mrbrown and kiss Xiaxue

7. You decided to watch the National Day Parade rehearsal instead

6. You were put on hold when you called NKF and asked for refund of your donations for the last 30 years

5. The only unwashed clothes you had were a pair of pants and shirt in plain white or trousers and top in golden color.

4. You were busy eating all the peanuts you could find

3. You were busy bragging to your coffee shop mates about the number of peanuts you ate

2. You were regretting making the ‘peanut comments’


and the number 1 reason why you could not make it to the Bloggers.SG 2005 meet is….


1. You look like T.T.Durai!

Doubleyellow> What kind of target practice?

Anyway, we should stop picking on Durai. There are other truly alarming issues at hand.

haha elfonse, just kidding abt e target practice lah..:) agree that the NKF saga isnt abt Durai or NKF or charities.. its abt transparency in general. And thats a nice one about the salted chips :)

your post, even with it's seemingly satirical nature, just seems like a lame and shameless attempt at getting traffic to your site.

To me at least.so much for wit.
