Xplorer the Blogger...

Yes folks this Blogger name is xplorer and he blog here SUKA JALAN-JALAN; an active blogger indeed. He is indeed an explorer of sorts. He would take his family on an exploration trips all over the country and share the adventure in his Blog. He is an avid photographer and takes picture of his trip and shares that too. I have been following his Blog from the time I saw his first comment on my blog. Then I put a link on my blog so that I do not miss any of his posting. He is from the generation of my kids and writes well indeed. After reading his blog for years as usual with me I wanted to see the person in real life. I have done that even with stranger bloggers from the other part of the world too and met a few in real life when overseas.  So I wrote to him for a meeting and he give me a quick respond to my request. With that we met on Saturday May 4, 2013 a day before the 13th General Election. After a few exchange of email we decided that we could meet at the KL Sentral mall where both of us could get to with ease using the LRT. So on that day at 10.30AM we met. I had just arrived at the Sentral Station and went to the reception counter to ask where Starbucks is. And just as I was about to walk to it a stranger spoke to me saying he is the xplorer Blogger and that his name is Wan Hazizi. We shake hand and move to our destination the Starbucks. There ordered our coffee and found a nice table to sit and get acquaintance. This is the first time I know his name. All the time he is known as the xplorer to me. Since we both have time to while away we chat on many subjects that comes to minds. Among it I wanted to know of his trip to neighbouring Thailand where he took the train to places as far as Bangkok. He say that he had travelled to many places in Thailand using the Thai Railway which start its service from Penang in Malaysia. He says it is a good train to travel and the service is great as well. That it is safe to travel alone or with family using the Thai Railway. I had planned to do the same so this information became valuable so that whenever I do that trip I would be at ease and could enjoy that train ride. As usual with blogger we talk and talk as we move on while enjoying our coffee. Then we ask a youth who was sitting nearby to take a picture of both of us. Above is the image of our meeting at the Sentral Station that fine day. 

Have a nice day.
