The Mauritian Bloggers meeting at Bagatelle

If you were at Bagatelle yesterday, 20th April 2013, you might have come across some popular and some not so famous Mauritian bloggers. How you would have recognised them, you might wonder. Simple - the table in the food court with the most gadgets would have been ours. Tablets, dSLRs and smartphones were on display to help you guys find us easier, lol. No we’re not geeks, we’re just passionate about technology!

For some of rest, it was the first time coming face to face with someone you’ve been speaking to for a while. Take for example myself and Yashvin, we’ve been in contact a lot of times through email but it was only yesterday that we met in person. It’s nice to finally meet that great guy who is so passionate about blogging and find he still has the same enthusiasm as 5 years back when he first started.

I was introduced to other bloggers who I didn’t know before and it was amazing how easy it was to chat with them as if we’ve been friends for a long time. That’s the great thing when you share something in common; you never experience that awkward moment of silence.

Unfortunately, I was not able to have a proper chat with everyone (15+ people) but I suppose this becomes an excuse for a future meeting. It would be nice to hang out again and hopefully this time, the bloggers who’ve stopped blogging would have become active again by then.

Anyway feel free to leave a comment if you’ve seen us at Bagatelle or if you want to know more about blogging and be part of our group.

Interesting... Clever Dodo was around and I didn't know about that one. Hopefully, next time we might be able to catch up...

People who sat at opposite sides of the table did not manage to chat properly if not at all. Definitely next time and thanks for dropping by...

I did move around and did not stick to one chair lol.
In a bloggers meeting held in Mac Do, shuffling around the table was compulsory and at the end of the meeting, you moved around and talked with everyone there, or most.
(And on that specific day, we were a group of 25 persons, (unofficially) reserving part of the Mac Do Port Louis just for us.)

Yes. The next time you should leave the throne to the capable guy that sat besides you and go and meet the others :P

gices 21 Apr 2013

Some say he's too young for the throne, let's give him time to prove himself worthy of the seat :D

Yashvin 21 Apr 2013

Haha, I love that description about me :-)
A pleasure to know you, in real. We definitely need another meeting, soon.

gices 21 Apr 2013

Yep, we definitely need to meet up again. And maybe put our cameras to work; shooting some nicer scenery :)
