Me with the special guest


I remember when one of my friends tells me about her dream to become Samantha Brown. I giggled and told her that I want to be Ian Wright from the Globe Trekker as care free as I can be a travel around the world with no boundaries. We are both really a fanatic for almost every host in Discovery Channel’s Travel and Living. We are insanely crazy desires to meet every host in Travel and Living. Well chances are way real low to meet one of them. Time pass and bla bla…The next thing I know, I am dining with Ian Wright!

That special night happened on the 22nd of April 2010. The excitement and edginess started a day before. I am going to meet my traveler idol! The event starts at 7pm and we were hold up by an awful traffic jam. I am supposed to reach at the venue less than 10 minutes from my house and yet I got delayed. I reached at 7.30pm I end up sitting quite far from the stage where Ian will be the hosting a little talk on it. :S


 This is how far I am away from the stage. Sigh....

 I was served with Mojito's. I can't have enough of it. It's been awhile since I make my own cup. So I had a lot that night.
 Ian came out and starts to share about his experience in the world some least visited place.  Out of Bounds will be premiers in May 20th at 9 pm Channel 707.


When he is sharing his experiences, the guest were served with the food from where Ian has been.

 For appetizer we had Syrian Babagnoush  with Lebanese bread.I didn't get to capture the pictures as its like pita bread but more tasty .. hehhee This is what the meals look like.
