We need to pick a date and time between July 17 and July 19 and a location.

May I suggest the Yixing Xuan Teahouse? For those who went for the last Singapore meetup, it is just across the street from Maxwell Food Centre.

I should be able to book the place and persuade them to stay open a little later than usual.

Any Singapore Mefites interested?

Yup, count me in!

Alnedra: Oh, the teahouse is great! Count me in; I'd like to vote for a Saturday, if possible.

Btw, as I understood it, the last meetup didn't happen; folks just happened to be busy then. :-)

I'm in! Proposed date and venue sound good to me.

Great! I would also like to throw in a vote for Saturday. Do the ayes have it? If so, we can turn this plan into a schedule (^_^)

So here's the plan. I'll schedule this meetup for 18th July (Saturday), beginning 6pm (although I'll probably be there earlier), if there are no alternative suggestions in the next 48 hours.

Seconded, Alnedra. Thanks for putting this together!

*crosses fingers too*

That is perfect. I'm definitely scheduled to be in Singapore about then (and if I'm not, I'll make sure I will be! :-D )

Hi guys!

New to mefi, only just got my account up and running a while back! But I'm Singaporean and it'd be cool to meet some of you guys!!! So here's me throwing my name into the bag as well...

Sorry, last minute family dinner, may have to pull out from this Saturday, hai.

Aww shucks. That's ok, wei.

Would you be able to join us later? The teahouse closes around 9ish (or 10 if I beg them), and we could adjourn to Maxwell Market for some late night desserts or something.

Also, I have a dinky little Hyundai and if anyone needs a lift home, you just need to give me clear instructions (^_^)

So... what's the deal here, we just show up at the Yixing Xuan Teahouse at about 6PM? Do we have a secret handshake or something? :-) How do we know if someone is from The Internets?
posted by the cydonian at 7:18 PM on July 17, 2009

Does 6pm mean there'll be dinner available at the teahouse? Anyway I won't be able to linger for long; have got other plans tonight. But I definitely am looking forward to seeing everyone at the first Singapore mefite meetup! the cydonian - I figure we'll stand out from the crowd (I hope).

All too soon the meetup has ended. It was really fun, and funny! Unfortunately while I had internet access, I simply couldn't upload comments to this thread. The connection kept timing out.

But it was great meeting hellopanda and friend (join us! join us!) and the cydonian. We have to do this again!
posted by Alnedra at 7:12 AM on July 18, 2009

yeah, I wanted to go too but my dinner just ended… let me know if there's another one
posted by wei at 8:30 AM on July 18, 2009

It was fun meeting all you guys! Lots of coolness out there. B-)

We should definitely do this again!
posted by the cydonian at 11:20 AM on July 18, 2009

I had lots of fun! You folks are seriously cool, mefi-cliches notwithstanding ;)

I'm glad the first ever Singapore mefi meetup was successful. Thanks Alnedra for pulling this off and introducing us to the teahouse!
