A certain young lady told me this morning that it was a big turnout at Viva for the Makan this last Tuesday, and lots of newbies. Nice to hear it went well.

Okay guys, given the poor attendance at last weeks Coffee Meet - we're looking for a new venue (preferably somewhere around Tanjong Bungah) and questioning whether the time is right (2pm).

Feedback please...

for us 2pm is inconvenient as we do not want to fry in the hot sun at the bus stop.

Why not discuss this on our next Makan meeting on 24th March?

Anyone want to just update on here? Is Steve's post at the top of the page still current? Just in case any newbies turn up on the days stated.

Think SteveMY is not around at the moment so may not be reading BE. Same with Kingoflostfools.

Can I suggest that any newbies (or anybody for that matter), check on here first if they are thinking of going to a coffee meetup. If 3 or 4 folks can confirm on here that they are going, then there is a Meetup hehe.

The Penang Support Group (PSG) has pretty much fizzled out I think. Everyone going in different directions or tied up with "life matters" (it happens) but no reason why anyone should post on here if they want a Coffee Meetup or Makan, and just see if anyone replies.

I've been trying for a few months to chat around to ensure at least 6 pax (people I know) would be here at one time before I posted a Viva night, but it seems impossible, but I'll keep trying though.

I take it the meetups don't happen anymore.

If there was one, who would be up for it.

I'm over for a couple of weeks from next Wednesday.

There seems to be a few who would like it to happen so..... why don't you suggest a day, a time, a place, put it on this topic, and see if it happens? Which area will you be staying in? That would be a good start.

I might** be available if it's a morning coffee, if it's close to home (Straits Quay or Gurney or Tg Bungah would be good for me).

**I currently have some serious "home-life problems" so I cannot commit 100 percent unfortunately.

I have a house in Tg Bungah, so the areas you mentioned would be good.

If anyone is intrested in a meet up then it would be good if they can relply in this thread then we can see if its worth doing or not.
