Special!!! Japanese Culture Exchange Meetup

Hiya everyone!

This weekend's meetup is going to be slightly different from the usual one! The organizer of a Singapore Study Tour Group has contacted me and expressed an interest from their group of Japanese University students to meet and interact with people in Singapore. So, they will be joining us on this meetup!

This group of students are interested to learn about various things in Singapore, as well as your views about Japan. They might have more questions than usual and so I hope that everyone also can have a good chat about various topics.

Other than the attendance of these students, basically the meetup will be free and easy as usual.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

The event location has been changed to Labrador Nature Reserve. Meet at Labrador Park MRT.

We'll be having the meetup somewhere within the red circle in the following map. For those that might be late, please try to find us there directly. Other than that, I will be checking the nearby bus stop (the black square) at 3.30, 4.00, 4.30, and 5.00. You can take bus 408 from Harbourfront. 

Please bring something to sit on if you mind sitting on grass, some insect repellents if you need it, personal drinks/food as needed. If it rains, we'll go back to plan A (McD's)

    皆さん,本当に済みませんでした。I am still stuck at work today and I don't think I can make it by 3pm. Seeing that there is quite a number of people on the waiting list, I don't think it's fair to hog a place and be late. Please do replace me if you can make it, thanks!

  • Leslie Kazuki N.

    For those who don't turn up and RSVPed since its a limited seating event , I will put your name on an "observation list" This will be reflected especially in future events, Thank you Very Much Have a Nice Day and see you there. :)

    August 10, 2013

  • Leslie Kazuki N.

    Final confirmation of the venue would be at Labrador Park MRT. Any changes will be reflected on the venue of this

    August 10, 2013

  • Jerry Y.

    wait, so are we meeting at Labrador MRT? Labrador Reserve? or Alexandra Park MRT?
    Please advise .

    August 10, 2013

    • Oogami

      Read the event description again and you can find out.

      August 10, 2013

  • Oogami

    Now that the total number of people is going to be like 50, Labrador Nature Reserve is becoming a higher possibility. So, please have some plan ready for outdoor chatting. (The current weather forecast is kinda worrisome though,so I will not change the venue yet) IF the venue is changed, we'll be meeting at Alexandra Park MRT instead. (Will also try to post a map of where we'd be likely to be having the event in the park)

    • Oogami

      Now hope for dry, cool day.

    Someone has suggested Vivocity rooftop @@ where the space is wide and plenty of space @@

    1 · August 9, 2013

  • Hasumi

    Pls do not change the venue. There's already an outdoor. Let this be indoor. If Alexandra Macs too small, use Liang Court's Macs??

    1 · August 8, 2013

    • Oogami

      Liang Court's Mac is even smaller for 50 people

      August 9, 2013

    • Oogami

      Also, where is the other outdoor thing?

      August 9, 2013

  • Daisuke D M.

    so where is it gonna be?

    August 8, 2013

  • Satoru K.

    I would like to join this meetup. I am a Japanese I live in near Tokyo, and I will stay in Singapore for 2 weeks.

    August 8, 2013

  • Spencer Loo Chih F.

    Sounds like fun, love Japanese animations and mangas. Hope to join if possible^^

    August 7, 2013

  • Carol O.

    I am sorry. I have something urgent pop up and i m not able to join. Anyway, have fun!

    August 7, 2013

  • James L.

    This is my first week in Singapore. Can someone give me a direction on how to get to the venue?

    August 7, 2013

    • Oogami

      Take MRT on the yellow line and you'll get to Labrador Park MRT. PSA is a short walk over the bridge from there. Labrador Nature Reserve will be a slightly longer walk, also from the same MRT.

      August 7, 2013

  • SM J.

    Hi! This will be my first time joining the meetup. Is there a contact person and number to contact in case we run late/get lost etc? Thanks!

    August 1, 2013

    • Oogami

      Unfortunately, no. There is no fixed time for the event, so there's no running late. As for the place, I will get 2-3 small placards with meetup sign out.

      August 5, 2013

    • Oogami

      We're holding the event in public place, so can't have sign that are too large. Then again, usually the amount of Japanese chatter (when not in Liang Court) is usually a pretty accurate hint.

      August 5, 2013

  • Kujira

    Hi, may i know if the Japanese students speak English, even just a little? ^^

    1 · August 4, 2013

    • Oogami

      August 5, 2013

    • Kujira

    August 5, 2013
