  • Tanveer A.

    It is better to collect/contribution in advance to avoid such situation.

    1 · September 16

    • Adeel A.

      Thank you for your suggestion brother. We are trying to create a system where its made sure that everyone pays and no one sneaks out thinking that they are attending my Valima :P

    • Adeel A.

      Thanks a lot Insiya.
      You were missed. see you next time inshaAllah. :)

    Hi All
    At this particular meetup's page, you'll be able to see on the right hand side of your screen the people who have attended the event. It says they were 75 people which is not correct. Actually 82 people RSVPed till a day before the event and 7 of them were nice enough to inform us that for any reason they would not be able to attend and they cared enough to change their RSVP to NO.
    A total of 27 people attended including me and 3 of my close friends who were invited by me on my personal request.
    I was wondering what ever happened to the rest who told us that they were coming but they didn't show up, didn't bother to inform and did not even care about changing the RSVP to No. Even I request so as well by sending everyone an email.
    I hope in future we'll try to act more like Pakistani PROFESSIONALS and be nice enough to be conscious of the fact that this group is seriously trying to help Pakistanis Help each other.
    If anyone does not take it seriously can leave please.

    Kudos to Adeel !!!
    I am really very happy to see our meetup group once again kicking off with big bangs.... Congratulation to all members who were part of the organizing team for this meetup. I regret not being present but wish to be there next time. We are about to hit the mark of 1000 members; let us have a special meetup once we touch the number.
    PPA Zindabad!!!

    • Adeel A.

      Thanks alot Shazz bhai. Yes we had a great one yet again. Ali Adnan was very helpful. He is a great guy as we all know. He just showed up on one single call. The ratio of people RSVPing and attending was still bad. People have to learn to be respectful of their commitments and if they cant make it they should understand that they have to inform. Venue was great. Restaurant is very centrally located and suitable for most people. Its also very close to the metro station and easy to find. Food was awesome. InshaAllah we'll be having more meetups at the same venue. Yes we are touching the 1000 mark and inshaAllah we'll have a special one soon. You are missed a lot and So is Abdul Ghafoor sb. I hope we'll be able to see you soon.
      Thanks a lot for the encouragement again. Makes me keep on going.
      :)
