3rd Saigon Blog Summit



Blogging has become a popular way of expressing oneself, keeping memories, and ultimately, making new friends over the internet. Unlike simple social networking where you connect to friends of friends of friends (blah), blogging enables you to connect to other people through some substance - words and pictures - sharing experiences that would otherwise remain unknown and remote to a lot of us if without the oh-so-powerful internet. So to bring blogging to the next level - Saigon expat bloggers (foreigners and Viet kieus) got together over two games of bowling and 3 large size pizza (note: VN large is US regular) at Diamond Plaza. Thanks to Kevin for getting everyone together and reserving those lanes for this through his friend Ly, supervisor at Diamond Plaza Superbowl.

Edit: Happy Easter, everyone! Now find those Easter eggs and bunnies for extra fun!

Bio

azngamerboi is currently living in Makati City, The Philippines working as Head of Marketing at Globe Telecom where he advocates the effective, if not rebellious, use of the internet in achieving usually obnoxious targets. He is not married but has two pets, one a daschund and the other a golden retriever. He loves to cook and treats wine as a hobby. An occasional blogger and a typical lurker, azngamerboi devotes most of his leisure time online where offline relationships gain texture, too. He likes reading but doesn't seem to get the right space, time, and mood to do it again. Time will come these books will hit the bed again. He prides in having an eye for detail and having acquired good taste at 25. He lives with his mum whom his friends and colleagues look up to and treat as their own mother and (or) friend. He has aspirations of retiring young, say, 35 to focus on a PhD leading to a teaching post at the university. He adores Mark Z. Danielewski and Wong Kar Wai. "In the Mood for Love" and "Memento" top his list of favorite movies. Never an academic awardee in high school, pretty average at the University, he is now the youngest executive at work. A certified party monster, he collects music from almost every genre. azngamerboi is an ordinary person with a zest for an extraordinary life.
