Now they call it SABAHAN Bloggers Gathering, the first time they call it KK Bloggers Meet which is happening on a boat! Even though August is still long way to go but the title itself showing us that Sabahan bloggers community is getting larger + happening + aramaitihh!!! See last year’s KK Bloggers Meet on a boat in pictures here (Which I didn’t manage to go). This time gathering is aiming to 100 bloggers to participate as what Daniel mention on his official announcement. He’s the only one of the organizer that is NOT actually Sabahan (Respect you botak Daniel!!!) to make the first KK Bloggers Meet a success last year.

Those Sabahan who would love to join or participate or make a kind sponsor or any contribution, you can kindly contact the committee :

Jacq, Mel, Fara, Papa Joneh, Julian, Wei Chuen, Dinoza

Me as a Sabahan, would love to make a tiny little small contribution here to the Sabahan Bloggers Gathering 2008 by giving you more choice of the official banner suits with you blog’s/web site’s theme color to put wherever on your side bar.

p/s : Hope si Daniel tidak marah sia kasi warna warni the banner :

On this week show, all contestant need to come up their jokes with singing, it’s a musical comedy.

Nabil show on this week was not that quiet good comparing to his previous show since his not really into singing type of person but here is another contestant whom I think is quiet good with this week’s task, musical comedy.. Shah, and he’s only 18 if I’m not mistaken.

How old are you during the year 1996? Where were you during the year of 1996? but that’s not really the question here, the question is.. have you ever wonder how would Kota Kinabalu city look like 12 years before? Have you noticed any development changes during 12 years back until now. For those Sabahan that have been studied, lived and survive in outside Sabah or even Malaysia and not been around Kota Kinabalu for many years, take your time to look at the picture after the jump.. I’m about to provided you with a simple graphic material showing up the changes happens throughout all the year 1996 to present.

This week’s show, all contestant are given title by the juries in order to perform their comedy which is ‘Superhero’. When you say superhero, most of you will think a superhero like spiderman or superman or cicakman, but this guy, Nabil has came up with a creative story base on ‘superhero’.
