    Felt a little more brave this time to try to speak more Cantonese. Glad I talked to very forgiving crowd. Thanks Fanny for setting this up.

    For anyone who's interested in karaoke afterwards, I've moved my karaoke event to the same day as this event. Karaoke will start at 7pm and end at about 10. Both locations are fairly close to each other --about a 10min walk.

    Remember it is on the SECOND FLOOR, next to Chatime Bubbletea. :D
