Oman’s top bloggers dinner at Trader Vics

Last night I had the privilege of attending an evening thrown for Oman’s top bloggers at the Intercontinental Hotel here in Muscat.
Being a blogger in Oman it is a relatively small world, we all check out each other’s sites out of interest and competitiveness. Maybe that last one is just me? Actually meeting these people in real life is a whole different thing.
We all met at the Trader Vics bar in the Intercon Hotel and the amazing cocktails certainly helped to break the ice while we mingled and put faces to the online names.
Look how amazing this cocktail is!!
We moved into a private dining room to discuss everything blogger, gossip and got to know each other a bit better. Plus I can confirm that everyone was completely lovely and fun to be around!!
My starter of a lobster salad. You can’t beat a bit of lobster!
Main course of king prawns in chilli sauce and vegetables. I cannot describe how amazing this dish was, I just didn’t want it to end.
So the “chocolate paradise” wasn’t quite the chocolate fudge cake that I wanted it to be but it was still really nice.

A great touch with the evening coffee’s is always a fortune cookie, I’m a sucker for a good bit of fortune. Mine said “you have an unusually magnetic personality” – is that a good thing or a bad thing?!
So a lovely evening of chatting and laughing was had by all and very nice to meet these people in person who I read about on a daily basis. Thank you to the Trader Vics team at the Intercon Hotel for a wonderful evening and delicious food! 
See you again soon!

    Spent 9 months in Oman… best part was getting to know the local people, up in the hills…. people who never complain…

    Lots of good meals (dates) and kawa….. lots of good, late night conversations…

    The villagers are great and the bedoins are all great people…. I avoided the expats… whenever I could….

    Oh, btw… do not recommend the beach at Sohar…. that is their public wash room for #2….

    Good fishing for tuna…. (bonito)… watch out for the very poisoness sea snakes…. beautiful clear waters (except for the poop)…. no trouble with sharks… 😉

    Very hot… most days in spring-summer-fall over 120F.
