Koko Black @ 52 Collins Street - Melbourne Blogger Meetup by Nuffnang
I'm terribly late you know =)
I had the pleasure of attending my first Blogger meetup yesterday in Melbourne.. and although we got off to a slow and (silent) akward start... I think I've made some new friends =)
I never thought I'd be part of a group of people where, when food is served... there is a flurry of activity.. not to eat the food but to catch the best picture of the food.. how silly we must have looked... But I came home announcing to the Boy, "I've found my people!"
A selection of chocolate pieces courtesy of Nuffnang (thank you!)
My Chocolate Affagato (still my fave to drink at KoKo Black) and I influenced Simone from alookinmybook to try one too =)
Emma from thecakemistress hands embracing her soy hot chocolate... isn't it pretty?
Violet's ice chocolate (I have no idea why she ordered ice.. it was raining and cold...)
For once I was so engrossed on making new friends and sharing stories, that I've completed neglected to take note of what we had...
So I'm going to go with assorted pastries and cakes ^_^
One of the pretty cakes.. I don't think I tried this one.. but hey! Looks pretty!
This last one was a pear and chocolate tart (I know this because Sarah from Nuffnang was presenting it to us)
Time for some pictures with people =)
The waittress looked a bit wary as she stepped in front of Penny from Jeroxie as she was trying to gather all of us to take a group shot...
Sylvia, Michelle and Emma listening to some conversation (there were a few)...
Simone, Violet and I
I also spoke to Ceri who writes for healthypartygirl, who has a mobile version of her blog!! Amazing!
Group shot of all who attended... I didn't quite get to speak to everyone as we were separated into two tables (groups).. so maybe next time?
Great job to the organisers, Violet and Penny!! Thank you again and here's to the next one!!!
