Hi folks, due to Christmas and New Year's Eve in December here are the last meetings for this year.

For next year I suggest to fix two regular dates within one month, eg 1st Tuesday for Coffee meetup (2pm) and 3rd Tuesday of the month for MM2H MAKAN (7pm) or the other way round. It is maybe easier to remember and updates are only needed in case of deviating dates. We can discuss this matter in one of the next meetups.

Steve, my wife and I hope to join you for coffee on 10th Feb but when I plug Ferringhi coffee garden into Google maps there is no clear indication of where this is. Please can you post some directions.

Hi all

We are John and Lisa from Melbourne Australia. We are seriously considering moving to Penang and are here to explore all the options. We will join you tomorrow to say hello and ask a whole lot of annoying questions that you have probably been asked a million times!

See you then!

John and Lisa

Welcome to the forum

Feel free to post any questions you have in the MM2H section or the Malaysia section, whichever seems appropriate.

Well, that was a fascinating meet up! Apart from the two of us there was a lone American and two Japanese tourists. We waited until 2.25 but unless you guys were in a private room it looks like it was a no show. Pity! However we did learn never to order a double espresso because they charge RM 13.80 each! At least they do it with a smile...

I cannot go to these things at the moment as we have a few "home problems" as some of you know.

This did happen once before, when the events were announced on the my2home forum and I believe, at that time, it was agreed that whoever organises the events would make sure that there were 2 or 3 people who would be definitely going. It looks like that didn't happen. What a pity.

Thanks for your response bakedbean. Not your fault but just one of those things!

We've done most of the work ourselves anyway. I wonder if anyone can recommend a rental real estate agent? We've contacted quite a few but they all seem to have just rented the place they advertised and only have something much more expensive. I might be cynical but the coincidence is speaking loudly!

Hi Lisa and John,

also welcome to the forum from my side. I'am sorry that nobody went to today's meetup. I know a couple, who was arriving today at 2.30pm but probably they missed you by minutes. I'm not the organizer, I was only asked to insert the meetings in this forum. In other words, there is no organisazer, but usually there are enough nice people to meet. For some the location in Batu Ferringhi is maybe too expensive, others prefer the macan at 7pm because of time reasons.

So if it is convenient for you to join the macan in two weeks, feel free to come. We are normally sitting near the bar were you can order the drinks - right in the back.

So hopefully this was a "one-off event". You can be sure, all mm2hers or locals I know and meet are nice and helpful.

Cheers Steve

I also sent you a pm
