A meet with IKN ambassadors

Thank u rizal!

A beautiful garden!! We love it so much!

Rizal; my dear friend from Rest n Rileks, Linda (his colleague from Institut Kraf Negara and my new friend) and En. Zainal (Director of IKN, kl---err, sempat berbasa-basi dan bertukar lambaian juga dengan incik Zainal nih) was in KK from 29th April-1st May to interview the applicants for IKN 2008 intake. Rizal was the second blogger that I met in person. Me and hubby met them twice (only rizal and Linda), one for a spoiled dinner and another one on their last day in KK before taking off to Tawau. I received a beautiful framed rattan flowers and butterflies, which Rizal told me was done by Ifa, his student. Proud of u Ifa! This is gorgeous! I was the second lucky person to receive this awesome gift (along with other IKN goodies) from rizal. The first receiver is Emila. I thought the frame was small, to my suprise, it was huge! Thank you so much Rizal and Ifa! Rizal also brought along his ATCs (each card accompanied with a pretty red rattan butterfly) and sponsor three IKN envelops for the swap. Hehe.

I had a good time accompanying them shopping at Philipino market. It was very pleasant to have the chance meeting them in person. Rizal had been a helpful and supportive blogger friend since the day we exchanged link (that was during 2008 CNY). And Linda, come, join us in blogosphere! Ifa...u too!
