Charlotte and I met in Hsinchu for lunch on Saturday. We spent the afternoon talking and getting to know each other better.
She is the first (and so far only) fellow blogger I've ever MIRL-ed with. It was a unique experience because on one hand I felt like I needed to say "Hi, my name is Amanda," but on the other hand I felt like she was a long lost kindred spirit. Feeling both of these at the same time is rather odd. :)
Nonetheless, I enjoyed our time together, and I assume that the next time we get together it won't be odd at all!! :)
We tried out my xshot (my first time to use it in public), and it's a little tricky. The first one was TOTALLY washed out, and I look like a turtle in the second one. :)
If two foreigners together attract a lot of stares . . .then two foreigners together using an xshot attract tons of stares! :) Some people just stopped to watch our picture taking, and others walked by looking at my camera's screen. It was fun.
