Japanese Meetup KARAOKE !!

  • Jan 19, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

THIS IS AN RSVP ONLY EVENT.  (CLOSED)

Rather than just "speaking" to each other, we could "sing" with each other!

While this is a Japanese Meetup event, there's no strict limitation to just Japanese songs. 

Unfortunately each of us would have to foot their share of the fees for the karaoke session. You could expect somewhere around $15 per person. 

According to the karaoke premise, each person would be entitled to one free drink per session.

To make this as smooth a session as possible, I have to apologize but to set certain rules:
There is no strict arrival or departure time, but for the sake of certainty and to avoid any sort of disputes about fee distribution, I would like to stress it now that:
"Each would pay an equal share of the fees for the karaoke session, regardless of time spent in the session."
Hence, for e.g., if a 3-hour session cost $60 for a 4-person room, you would be expected to bear $15, even if you have joined for an hour or less.
"The exception would be if there are extra drinks or food ordered. Each would bear the cost of their own drinks or food costs."

Room arrangements, once finalised, shall not be changed (save for really exceptional circumstances, for e.g. ...... ... I seriously cannot think of any. But my mind is still open to listen to individual circumstances.) Please understand that this is for the certainty of arrangements and the avoidance of time spent on most disputes.

For those of you who are not familiar with where the karaoke place is, I will be waiting at Somerset MRT station (right in front of the station booth) until 4.30p.m. before heading to Cuppage Plaza to start arranging for everyone to get into their rooms.

For those of you who get lost in getting to the venue, just post on this forum, and I would reply as soon as I can. (I might be singing if it is after 5p.m. so bear with my slow reply)

Oh yeah, my voice is horrible too, so bear with me xD

  • Jerry Y.

    Greetings everyone.
    Thank you to all who attended the karaoke. It was a great pleasure to meet all of you.
    I apologize if I have caused any mishaps within the event. I have received some feedback and shall endeavour to further improve the events in future. I thank all of you who have kindly come back to me with feedbacks.

    As for future karaoke events, I have received some suggestions to make this a monthly event. I shall take that into consideration as well. To all the other organizers/room leaders, I thank all of you for your help in this. The event could not have been a success without your help.

    I look forward to meeting all of you again in the near/further future.

    Good afternoon everyone,
    to facilitate ourselves to make the session smoother,
    do have a look at the room arrangements I have made. (photos already uploaded)

    The names with red underline are the "room leaders".
    Room leaders are there to seek help from should you need anything. They are vested with the right to make decisions on behalf everyone in the room.
    for e.g. if the room leader decides to do "round robin" method. Also, as we now have 5 rooms, room leaders shall make sure that everyone in the room pays their equal and/or fair share for their individual rooms. Should room leaders have any issues or are unable to resolve an issue, I am the next and final point of consultation. I shall personally go visit each room from time to time. Might even sing a song or two with you all. Bear with my horrible voice >,<

    January 19, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      I see. That's a pity. Hope that you'll get to join future meetup too ^^

      January 19, 2014

    • Darwis S.

      I hope so too! And its near my place. Haha

      1 · January 19, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    Dear members, I have uploaded photos of the room arrangements that I have done. I display these for two reasons: as a display of fairness in room arrangements, and to let you folks start to know each other's names before you start the karaoke session. See you all tomorrow!

    1 · January 19, 2014

    • Flex T.

      Hi Jerry, thank you for the photos! Looks so well organised~ I think everyone is going to have a great time today! I'll see ya at Somerset later then :)

      January 19, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      Sharon's name is under "お". Haha. The 19 Jan version is the final version save for the fact that Juman is replaced by Akio -san. Haha, see you Flex.

      January 19, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    As there is at least one pull out from the RSVPs, I have contacted the waiting list members.
    To Darwis Sunaryo, as you have not filled up the form, I have no means to contact you directly. Please reply here by tonight (Saturday) if you are still keen on joining.

    January 18, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    Greetings everyone,
    I have closed the form as of now.
    This is to allow me to start on the room assignments for all of you.

    Look forward to meeting all of you on Sunday ^^

    January 16, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    Hello everyone, RSVPs are closing in a moment's time. Thank you for your keen interest in this event.

    For those of you who did not RSVP or said "no", perhaps we can have fun together next time ^^
    (But please do not pop up if you have not RSVP-ed. As a strict rule, I will have to kindly ask you to leave).

    For those of you who have not filled up the form, please do so. I should be able to come up with a layout as to the room arrangements pretty soon, and those whom I am unable to assign, I would have no choice but to use 阿弥陀籤 to assign you.

    For those in the waiting list, I shall inform you as to whether there are any vacancies later.

    January 15, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      Do note that while I shall make my best endeavours to be fair and arrange everyone according to song preferences, I sincerely apologize should the arrangements not turn out to be your ideal matching. Save for exceptional circumstances, the arrangements will not be altered once decided. This is to maintain certainty in the arrangements. I sincerely hope for your kind understanding.

      January 15, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      p.s. 阿弥陀籤 (A-mi-da-ku-ji).

    Do anyone knows what system do they use? and how up to date is it?
    And just in case anyone is new (just in case...), link to generate the number to key into the system: http://www.clubdam.com

    Thank you.

    1 · January 13, 2014

    • Victor

      BB Cyber DAM if I remember correctly. There was also ONE room with Premier DAM, I think, with the stylus input. The most obvious difference will be the wider availability of Korean songs. I do not sing new Japanese songs so I can't comment on that.

      2 · January 14, 2014

    • Karen y

      Thank you very much.

      January 15, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    Hi all of you, just a few updates (and probably will answer a few questions that have just come to me)

    I have only received 24 responses from those who are attending / in the waiting list. Please do fill up the form at
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1p7wcTXyE0Fz7UGjoxV3tm_4XJP5xKfxbCSR453ekAKI/viewform

    For those of you who do not / prefer not to send a response, I will have to randomly assign you to one of the rooms. I apologize if the room happens not to be to your preference.

    Then again, if you send a response but you happen to be one of those with special/unique preferences, I would try to assign you by age-group (yes, I will be looking at your profile pic and put you in a group. and yes, I can be an idiot when it comes to looking at people's appearances. I'm not called "おめでたい ジェリー" for nothing, LOL) So if your profile pic happens to be a picture of a fish, a dog, some cool scenery etc....... I don't know which group I will end up putting you in. I apologize in advance... Orz )

    January 14, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      I'll text you my number later. In fact I intend to text all of those who have filled up the form sometime tomorrow.

    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1p7wcTXyE0Fz7UGjoxV3tm_4XJP5xKfxbCSR453ekAKI/viewform

    For those of you who are bringing guests, I shall be putting your friends in the same room as you. I apologize but I have to leave it to you to make sure that your own guests turn up.

    5 more days >,< !!

    January 14, 2014

  • Victor

    I forgot what I filled in the form...
    Which room am I being assigned to?

    January 14, 2014

    January 14, 2014

    • Leslie Kazuki N.

      Do you sing the same genre ? If you most likely you would be in the same room :D

      January 14, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      I'll see what I can do.

      January 14, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    Hi everyone, due to the nice popularity of this event, it has been suggested that the groups be allocated according to song preferences.

    Please fill in this form that I have created:
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1p7wcTXyE0Fz7UGjoxV3tm_4XJP5xKfxbCSR453ekAKI/viewform

    Your details shall be kept confidential, and Leslie and I shall be the only one with access to them, as organizers of this meetup.

    Your cooperation is very much appreciated.

    1 · January 11, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      Hmm, I'll leave that to individual room leaders to decide on that, (to which I have appointed already and shall be announced later), your point is well noted, and I have faith in the room leaders I have appointed.

      1 · January 14, 2014

    • Jeryl L.

      Wonderful! Thanks!

      January 13, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    Oh wow, all the slots have been filled. Thank you for the enthusiasm.
    For those who haven't, please fill up this form for the karaoke:
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1p7wcTXyE0Fz7UGjoxV3tm_4XJP5xKfxbCSR453ekAKI/viewform

    For those of you who did not get a slot, perhaps you could join us next round! (I shall see if holding a next round is feasible)

    For those who have RSVPed, once I consolidate all your contact details, I shall keep you further posted with regards to the event.
    So those of you who have not filled up the form, please do so.

    January 12, 2014

  • Jerry Y.

    Greetings everyone, I realised that the event has only been created for just over a day and it is almost filled!
    *the stress* lol

    To answer a few questions that have been posed to me, which might be of good pointers as well to some of you:
    1) Dear Jerry, can I come later than 5 o' clock?
    ANSWER: Yes, just so long as you foot an equal share of the room costs (as stated in the description)

    2) Jerry, what if no one else sings the same genre/language songs as I do?
    ANSWER: First, I shall try to put you together with others in a room with more members of around the same age group. If that fails, I shall have to assign you randomly amongst the rooms. I will literally do a lucky draw of some sort on your behalf when I'm assigning the rooms later on Wednesday. 3) hi jerry how many rooms have you booked?
    ANSWER: I have currently booked 1 large room and 3 small rooms. If the premise allows, we can have additional rooms. But that of course, means more cost for each person in a room.

    • Jerry Y.

      Disclaimer: no, the questions were phrased slightly differently.

      January 11, 2014

  • Huang Hsyen L.

    cool event, any limit for number of people?
    18 is like lots of people and the room can
    take more?

    January 10, 2014

    • Huang Hsyen L.

      I think we will need to reserve the rooms earlier to cut any wait time.

      January 11, 2014

    • Jerry Y.

      Ah, I reserved the rooms yesterday Lol
