Penang Godfather

I am not a famous or popular person. In fact, nobody in the blog advertising industry actually know who is Cleffairy. More often than not, each time I attend any events or blog advertising campaign, organizers from Nuffnang especially, will ask me… “Cleffairy? Who?” and then they will look at me from head to toe and ask me this ” You’re not a blogger, are you?” and then this one will follow “Are you sure you’re invited? Cuz this is for media or bloggers only!”.

Oh, good grief… I’m a freelance journalist for God’s sake! Even if I’m not a blogger, I am still a member of the media. A media practitioner, in fact! *SNARL* Why all bloggers must represent Nuffnang is beyond my comprehension! Dudes, babes, whatever, that is stereotyping! DUH!

But then again, they are right in some ways I suppose. You can say that I am not exactly a blogger. I am a freelance writer… or rather, a novelist. So they are right in some ways. I am not quite a blogger… or rather, not exactly your typical blogger. People do not exactly recognize me through the pictures in my blog because I don’t put them up for public viewing. People usually recognize me through my writings.

Despite of my lack of popularity and public recognition in the world of blogging, I am glad that I knew a lot of friends through blogging. I met so many wonderful people through blogging. Truthfully, I did not realize that I come to know so many good friends through blogging until Eugene pointed it out to me. 😀

Yes… I met Eugene when I was in Penang last week during my…. ahemm… vacation. 😀 I did not meet him alone. He brought his wonderful family along and treated my family and I to dinner. Jovial and Marvel was such darlings. They were so quiet and very shy. >.< Made me wonder if they are scared of me?

Anyway, I really appreciate it that Eugene made an effort to meet me when I told him that I decided to extend my stay in Penang for one more day (geez… I didn’t get enough of Penang… not enough food, not enough adventure, not enough romance… bwhahaha, and I was actually hoping to meet Eugene and his family. Not that I admitted it to him when we meet up, anyway. *BLUSH* I feel shy….)

My timing was all wrong. Eugene was actually hooked up for alot of appointments during my stay in Penang. He’s really a nice guy and goes all out for you, and I feel lucky to have known him.

My first impression on him is that he’s a very cool and casual guy. But still water runs deep. He’s much more than just a casual guy wearing a faded, comfortable Hawaiian shirt. After a few minutes chatting with him over my chicken wings, I come to realize that he’s a rather passionate person. He’s passionate with whatever he do and he’s also a very attentive person. Eugene have a very strong memory and could recall many things about you, and definitely have a strong view on certain current issues that’s going on in the country. Eugene is also a very good conversationalist, and if you’re to meet him in person, I have no doubt that you’d feel comfortable around him. Having a conversation with him is effortless and he reminds me of my own father.

Thank you, Eugene, for spending time with me and my family. I want you to know that I really do appreciate the fact that you rescheduled your appointments just to accommodate me for dinner. I’ll never forget that. And I hope I did not scare you off with my appetite for food. >.< LOL. You have yet to see my DBKL ability. LOL!

Cleffairy: If you say I am popular or famous, then you are wrong. Nobody out there actually know me. I am just blessed with wonderful friends who keep me in their thoughts.

    I think I rather be in your shoes and be unknown. I have become well known for all wrong reasons ~ constant swearings and blog wars that got me embroiled over 1 year ago. Blek!

    • Cleffairy says:

      Hah… I am actually an anonymous blogger…. whenever I attend an invited event, nobody really knows who I am, and truthfully, I kinda enjoy that. Why? LOL… cuz I know ppl and they have no clue who I am… feel syok ah…. I recognize ppl and ppl dun even know that I am ‘Cleffairy’ even though they read my blog and I commented in their blogs and stuff. (OMg, that is so stalker-like) Just that sometimes, i feel annoyed that ppl have to stereotype bloggers… keep tink that if you’re bloggers, surely you’re a Nuffnang blogger. Grrr… so irritating! Can’t bloggers represent themselves or a less known advertising agency? TSK!

      Blog war? Tell me about it… I was kinda ‘famous’ 3 years back as well… all because of blog war too!
