When Shahirah Met Tahirah
Blogging is a pretty cool thing.
Having blogger friends is fun.
Meeting blogger friends in real life is even more fun!
Especially when they come to visit you when you live 5000 miles away.
I first met the beautiful doctora, Tahirah, when she came to the Live Fashion / Love Music event by Hana Tajima and Yuna last December. I was ecstatic when she emailed to tell me that she was coming to New Zealand for a holiday. It's always so nice to meet friends from the blogging world in real life. There's a special unspoken connection between us and we had a lot of fun together last Saturday when we met up and I took her around this little town o' mine for a day.
Tahirah with her husband and friends. They're all medical doctors by the way. How cool is that?
I took them to Angus Steakhouse for some good old fashion NZ steak.
All of us ordered the 200gm NZ sirloin steak. $17 only!
It was good but I think they got our orders mixed up cos I didn't get the medium-rare steak I asked for.
After all that food we had to exercise.
We walked up Baldwin Street a.k.a. the steepest street in the world.
I walked all the way up with these pair of heels. You best believe it!
Goofing around. Typical. The guys were cracking me up all day.
We took photos like crazy.
The guys even took a photo of the mail-woman who was doing her rounds on Baldwin Street!
She's definitely very fit and healthy-looking.
Then off we went to the Botanical Garden.
Tahirah and hubby going all Bollywood here.
Forget coffee, wake up and smell the roses!
Went to feed some hungry ducks
Finally, I showed them around my university's campus.
T'was a good day. I'm glad I had the opportunity to show them around even though we didn't have much time as they were leaving for Queenstown the same day. It was fun nevertheless. I can't wait to meet up with her when I'm back in KL and hear all about the rest of her trip. I think they were very lucky because the weather was sunny and gorgeous in Dunedin when they came over! Dunedin's not usually like that. It rained and hailed the very next day.
So... anyone else coming to my side of the world anytime soon?
