Meetup Report
On the coldest week in our usually-sunny island, we had a warm Postcrossing meetup in the Southern West of Singapore.
We started by displaying our postcards on the wall for the 5 categories for a display competiton - food, transport, nostalgia, odd-shaped/oversized and collage.
We then had 1.5 hours of signing postcards, this time I personally think it was the most efficient as we had almost equal numbers of postcrossers spread across 3 tables (0.5hr each). We also had our first Singpost-approved postmark (designed by Jade) to stamp on our meetup cards!
Feeling peckish, we started to nibble the delicious food and drinks that postcrossers had brought to share, ranging from the savoury local fish cakes to sweet cakes and desserts.
It was followed by an informal sharing by postcrossers who put up their displays in the 'collage' section - we heard stories of why they chose their themed postcards.
While enjoying the food, everyone also voted for their favourite postcard in each section, and then we tabulated the results and gave out prizes to the cards with the highest votes.
The meeting concluded with a group photo.
Thank you Geraldine for organising!
It was an enjoyable time meeting new and old faces!

Hi, anyone might have a spare meet-up card for swap? Signed or unsigned doesn't matter. I really like to have this card (since I always visit Singapore!). I have another meet-up card or other postcards. Please PM me, thanks!
