    It was a really fun meetup and everyone was really nice, however the restaurant was simply too noisy for th speakers to be heard, so in terms of providing information, the meetup may not have been that successful. Otherwise though, everyone seemed to have a good time and got to know eachother.

    it was very interesting.
    I appreciate your thoughtful introduction.

    Hi, Sunami san, it's not very possible or nice to speak out across the table in Sizeria. so each keynote speaker go around for each table(probably 5,6 table assuming 25 people coming. is that right?

    Hi, I am basically from India. I have been to Japan once and i simply love Japan and its culture. I know a bit of Japanese (JLPT 4,3). Was hoping to meet any Japanese people here too. Hope to hear from you people.

    Sunami-san, Domo arigato for following up re the candlelight svc last round. I hope the ppl of Jpn received our msg of hope! ;o) As a newbie to Japanese meet-up in SGP, I would like to come to the meet-up, but unfortunately, the timing is not gd -- my Chinese knot handicraft class ends @ 6 pm. I can send u some advice re the points you are bringing up in this session via e-mail. Onegai shimasu..... ;o)

    ps* I realize that this website doesnt support Hiragana, Kanji or Katakana??

    "Let?s come up with idea how we can save East Japan Earthquake victims."

    this is a good suggestion. i read in a previous issue of TODAY that a person suggested providing them temporary housing here in SG. The only main problem would be the air tickets needed to get them over here.

    Sunami-san: Sorry i forgot to check this message board. glad to see you guys have decided on the place.

    There is an open air "theatre" just behind Dhoby Ghaut MRT; it's unoccupied most of the time. I'm concerned about the talk about religions; what kind of things will you talk about? Just places of worship and an introduction to the faiths probably unfamiliar to Japanese (Hinduism, Islam) or will it be used as a platform for proselytism?

    I've called Trung Nguyen cafe just to ask about it. They say they don't do bookings but he is now seeing if he can work out reserving seats for 30 pax for us (no charge). Beverages there are ordered on self-service basis so it won't be a hassle. If he can offer something, I'll update again to see if you guys want to use that cafe.

    Or, if we want somewhere private, if someone in this meeting is living in a condominium and comfortable to invite us to the condo's function room, I guess that might do too.

    April 12, 2011

  • Ri C.

    Actually Liang Court is a good idea. It's near quite a few important places, decent transport, near the city, after the talk it's possible to show people around etc.

    April 12, 2011

  • hamtaro

    how about Saizeriya? Its definitely big enough for 30 and theres food too.

    April 12, 2011

  • Ri C.

    Actually if that's the case, can't Sunami-san ask if the Japanese Association has any room that he can use?

    April 12, 2011

  • Darwin Z.

    There is a major japanese culture course in NUS i think. Jackson is the one who study there. Maybe can ask the japanese lecturer there for help in this issue? They even organise ocha tea event there before. I guess they have a japanese room like sliding door there too. Base on photo i see it in facebook.

    If we're looking into cafes, there is actually a student-run cafe above the earlier mentioned Big Steps in SMU (on level 2). Access to the cafe is open to non-students if its under a booking with the cafe ($60/hr).

    I'm not sure if that's cheap (compared to TCC, etc) but we could call those tomorrow. Not to forget Trung Nguyen (Vietnamese cafe) at Liang Court.

    April 11, 2011

  • Sophia

    Sorry, my bad.

    Neglected to mention, I can actually ask the SMU Japanese Cultural Club to see if they can help to book the venue (either the steps or a classroom, student clubs are allowed to book facilities) and in return, we invite them to join in our event. Not sure how receptive they would be though.

    April 11, 2011

  • Ri C.

    How's about booking a function room somewhere? Function rooms/meeting rooms will probably be cheaper?

    April 11, 2011

  • Sunami M.

    SMU, outside open space steps, cost S$900/day, minimum. We cannot choose there. We have to choose for free or low charge room. Police permission costs S$50 to use Speakers Corner at Hong Lim Park.

    April 11, 2011

  • Flex T.

    I'm more in favour of the SMU option because the place is under shelter in case of rain, and it's proximity to cafe and food areas when we want to adjourn for food or tea. However, Botanical Gardens is an interesting thought too.

    April 11, 2011

  • Ri C.

    Acatually I have a question about the location. It's free and great and all but is that the first impression you want to give people?Perhaps we can meet at a park or botanics garden because realistically for taxi drivers those places are easier to find, compared to SMU....just a suggestion as well.

    April 10, 2011

  • Sophia

    There is a large empty space at the bottom of all that steps, so perhaps we could all gather and sit at the lower steps while the speaker stands.

    April 10, 2011

  • Sophia

    Masahiro-san, There is a space at SMU School of Information Systems which I think we can "invade" :) Its located on Bras Basar Road. (Photo: http://www.smu.edu.sg/campus/im...­)

    Hi, I'm a local and I'd like to share information with the new comers, though I just graduated high school, I think I'll have some useful information for those with families or children.
