I am pleased to cordially extend warm & special invitation to become one of our Event Organizers to...
our member Steve of Laguna Hills!


Through uncanny luck, I meet Steve at our Friday visit to Shark Club. There our member Michael (& Gina) noticed a girl dancing sexy (Angel) but didn't want to go approach her; a tad frustrated with this, I went to dance by her and see what she was about. There I saw this tall, big guy, who I thought was black, by himself there dancing with her and ~3 other girls. I said hello to the gal and gave her an AsianFriendster card. Later at about 2am as the club was closing I noticed this guy sitting by himself by the door. Still thinking he was black and seeing he was a bit of a lone wolf, I decided to give him an AsianFriendster card. He asked if I could give him a ride home to Laguna Hills, at a particular cross-street (that his bud had left him). I said "I'm going to that exact cross-street, what amazing coincidence". So I gave him a ride to the Pho then to home and he was sold on AF.

Shawn doesn't have car presently so was pleased to hear the next day I was going to that's nite's AVEC Club visit and of course could give him a ride. And the next day he joined AF esp. to RSVP to this. Because of his enthusiasm, just before he left I decided he would become our 3rd new Event Organizer for us and made him up AsianFriendster business cards declaring him so for him to pass up: printed him 50 standard + 10 glossy. At the club, he immediately spotted & introduced me to Chris, head of Endless Empire, a major club promotion company, and indeed Chris gave me good leads (said he uses MobileStorm & iContact for his email lists and pays helpers $4/head starting over 20 people). And Shawn then worked hard and introduced AsianFriendster to dozens of people giving dozens of cards. He said this sort of work wasn't too new to him: he had worked as a promoter for Limelight but eventually stopped as it wasn't bringing in any money.

Afterwords we went to the same Pho place again (Pho Than since the usual Pho place has a waiting list) and he told he knew tons of people the hip-hop club promotion business, and loved to go to these clubs. Though right now is looking for work.

Today my mother & I invited Shawn to lunch and (between obsessive texting) he said that his ideal job would be doing club promotions, seemingly sales, though he realized he didn't have all the skills and saw that the successful businesses are multi-person.

Shawn certainly knows a bunch more about club promotion than I and has a ton more experience, plus he loves going to the hip-hop clubs about club promotion. For AsianFriendster and it's future versions, at least in Orange County where he knows so much, I see Shawn has overseeing our hip-hip & top-80s clubs, because he loves these and also because I personally could do without their typical (IMHO uncreative) music and too much noise & smoke. His not having a car will be a challenge but on the other hand it also should be noted it was what caused us to really meet.

So let us warmly invite Shawn to become one of our fine Event Organizers!laughing Shawn, make your pledge to everyone below: just follow my prior post.

Yesterday evening I promoted Shawn Moon to be our 1st Assistant Organizer!

  • This was initially so that he could upload photos for an event listing. An annoying limitation of Meetup I discovered: an Event Organizer can't upload photos for an event until the event has already taken place:. This is is a serious drawback as the Event Organizer may have to upload photos for the event listing.
  • However, Shawn has has been very dedicated, working for days this week learning how to do club listing, and has also passed out many cards and talked up AsianFriendster. Therefore, this recognition and trust of this added title is deserved.
Please feel free to welcome Shawn as our first Assistant Organizer under my new management!

I am pleased to cordially extend warm & special invitation to become one of our Event Organizers to...
our member Matthew Nguyen of Norwalk!


I meet Mathew at our Friday visit to Shark Club 2010.10.08; he seemed a lone wolf, there by himself, so I gave him an AsianFrindster card, and he said he'd look into it. What I didn't realize until a couple weeks later is that he was ALREADY our member, since 2009.11.13, for almost a year!

Mathew started RSVPing YES & coming to nearly all our nightclub events. And though Shawn­ was now Assistant-Organizer, without a car and now after his without a computer (his laptop stolen), for the past weeks he couldn't be any help. So it occurred to me that Mathew could manage our nightclub events, at least at Shark, AVEC, and Heat. After all, he was attending more than anyone. Plus he was not just Asian (like all top-level promoters) but in particular medium-height Vietnamese (like seemingly 100% of members of the top promotion company) --and these details seem to matter as I being white, and Shawn being Korean, and both of us being rather tall, we were not actually receiving a properly respectful welcome (as bringing in 10 people in the club but only getting paid for 4).

So on 2010.10.28(Thu)18~ before that evening's Heat, I called Mathew and offered him the job, and he accepted. And we agreed to meet next week so I could show him the computer tech ropes as he was new to computers.

Mathew got a Bachelors in Marketing at Cal State Fullerton, so doing event promotions has some reasonable connections.

So let us warmly invite Mathew to become one of our fine Event Organizers!laughing Mathew, make your pledge to everyone below: just follow Shawn's pledge, following with your own custom greeting.

They day before yesterday Shawn SMSed he was suddenly sick. Yesterday and today he hasn't responded to SMSes, which was never like him before for all the time I've know him. While there is the remote chance he is in trouble, I can't outrule this could be he is avoiding paying back the money he owes now that this is the very same time he had promised to be paying it back, though I certainly hope this is not the case. And since he's for the past few weeks said he's had no computer so hasn't been doing his work on our site so I and others have had to fill in for him, there is no real need for him to have the extra capabilities Assistant Organizer provides plus (given this situation) it could be a data risk, so for good data safety I've demoted Shawn from Assistant Organizer to Event Organizer until he's come back on line and shown there is nothing to be worried about here (that he's shown he will pay back for the rides & tickets he said he would and has resumed his duties properly).

I am pleased to cordially extend warm & special invitation to become one of our Event Organizers to...
our new member Jennye of Tustin!


I first met Jennye at our AVEC Halloween visit 2010.10.31; I dressed as "Michelle" (a hot punk school girl), she wanted a photo of me. And she charming and lovely as she is, I also asked a photo of her. And I introduced myself, "Besides being a "woman", I promote Shark, & AVEC, & HEAT and could get you in for free!" But she then said *she* was an independent promoter for HEAT (so then seemed to have little interest in my promotions I'd guess, perhaps seeing me as a competitor). But still I asked her for a card, and we exchanged cards.

Sure enough she has a very nice card, indeed seemingly belonging to http://HeatUltraLoung...­ (so I still don't understand how she is independent).

Anyway, looking for something other than our usual top promoters to send our guest list to (since last time we had brought in about 10 people but they only paid us for 4), I thought I would then give it to her, at least our Thursday HEAT listings say even starting with our upcoming one.

So last evening I contacted her 1st time with the following SMS conversation:
11/4/10
Me: I "Michelle"(Destiny). Gd 1st mtg u@AVEC Sun http://Meetu.ps/44XC...­ . Starting now,we cd hand our guests lists2u. What club nites u promote? What ur cutoff time? 7:33 PM
Jennye..: Heat ultra lounge every Thursday, Friday n Saturday night! Need guestlist in by 8pm. Thursday n Saturday free til 11, Fri. Free til 10:30 7:38 PM
Me: Prompt&detailed reply,Jennye-I like-thxU! I'll hv ur our short guestlist4 our 2nite listing http://Meetu.ps/4ctr...­ emailed2 J---@HeatUltraLoungeOC.com b4 8pm. 7:45 PM
Me: Excuse me (for the typo): I mean to J---@HeatUltraLoungeOC.com :-) 7:49 PM
Jennye...: Jennyet---@yahoo.com 7:50 PM
Jennye...: Sorry but I can't really understand what u typing :) 7:51 PM
Jennye also called me, I guess curious who was sending her these lists (I guess she didn't peek at the URLs I sent). I was pleased to talk with her. She said she does most of her promotion via Facebook. I asked her if she caught a lucky guy. She said she wasn't thinking about guys now (as possibly avoiding them); I said "A tragedy to the world. Please add me me to her waiting list!"

I then had our new Event host Matthew email her our guest list.
Jennye..: Got it!!! 9:02 PM
Jennye ...: Make sure all guest know to mention they on Jennye's glist 9:03 PM
Me: Thx,was already letting our guests know. Though I not on Facebook,u can read a ton on me on http://LoveRules.Info...­ as my bio there.Post ur thoughts,charming J:) 9:12 PM

2010.11.04 23:25 I sent Jennye a special invite to join AsianFriendster http://Meetup.com/Asi...­ :
Hey, entrepreneurial Jennye T---! It's a pleasure doing business with you. Since u do "Heat ultra lounge every Thursday, Friday n Saturday night!", might I invite u to join us at http://Meetup.com/Asi...­ where you can promote to our 300+ members for free! U put up the listings and for now collect all the $ if you host the event! Indeed we already have a nice listing for HEAT Thursdays as http://meetup.com/u/3...­ to make it just copy & paste for u to get started. Thoughts? Join!

Not hearing back, today:
Me: When replyin 2guestlist email,pls do reply-all email(not SMS) so all senders&cc get confirm. Gd doin biz w/u! @11:25pm I Destiny emailed u a special invite..:-) 3:54 PM
Jennye ....: Thanks but last. Night non of ur guest showed :) 3:55 PM
Me: Peter Paul M--- said he went in. Got him? That was it as we aren't emailing HEAT out yet until we've got resources 2get&handle many RSVPs. 3:58 PM
Jennye...: Well they prolly got there real early n everyones in free anyways before 1030... But thanks 3:59 PM
Me: Sure. Yes,he sent me SMS "I am already here 9:24 PM". Lkg fwd 2 hearing fr u on my email sent @11:25pm, charming findora Jennye. :-) 4:04 PM
Jennye ...: :) wow he was really early... Our guys don't start doing guestlist til 10pm 4:05 PM
Me: So how to solve that? Once u are Event Ogzr here (see 11:25pm email) u can edit our HEAT listings as http://meetu.ps/4ctr...­ yourself to give exact dirs :-) 4:13 PM

16:35 Jennye had joined Meetup & our group and by just 16:41 (6 min later) had even posted her first idea promoting her HEAT outings.

5:18 PM I greeted Jenny on her profile
“ Welcome to http://Meetup.com/Asi...­ , Jennye! &Nice pic. Wow,ur fast;&sharp2 figure out where to advertise. Only thing is Meetup mbrs (as AsianFriendster) RSVP on own via public Meetup (also key for others to see they are coming),not via private SMS: We want to build group AsianFriendster database, not just ur personal client contact database. See our event listing style as http://meetu.ps/4ctr...­ -let me offer u Event Ogzr job (give me 30 min) so u can create & edit listings as these. :-) ”

Jennye is quite the enterprising entrepreneur! And coincidentally & delightfully she will also be our first woman organizer, too.

So let us warmly invite Jennye to become one of our fine Event Organizers!laughing Jennye, make your pledge to everyone below: just follow Mathew's pledge (using the template text linked to the 1st post), following with your own custom greeting to the group!

Above our new member Jennye of Tustin needs encouragement from members to step up and become a great Event Organizer for us as...

“ It is with great pleasure that http://Meetup.com/Asi...­ warmly invites our new enterprising member Jennye to be one of our group's great (& soon famous) Event Organizers! (plus coincidentally our first woman organizer, too) -- see http://meetup.com/Asi...­ , Jennye! ”
