We began our day with an informal lunch at the venue. It was a standalone room, slightly cozy and tight on space, but afforded us the privacy for us to carry out the meeting. Meetup cards were collected and postcrossers were streaming in and checking in. We used the design by Jade Soo for this year's cachet and it was passed around for us to chop on our cards.
Meanwhile, postcrossers also put up collages of themed postcards (this year's theme: NATURE) on the glass wall for display. Many people who walked past also took interest in the collages and what we were doing.
When the meetup began at 3pm sharp, cards (30 each) were signed and it went on for more than one hour. At 4.45pm, we had to stop the signing (hence some of our cards were not complete!) and we began awarding prizes for the collage mini-competition. Joint 3rd prizes went to mmpiglet and Taiyang (African Safari), 2nd prize to janetblythe (Islands) and the 1st prize went to lohsmeng (Mt Fuji, Japan in four seasons). The winners also did a short sharing on their postcards.
We wrapped up the meetup with a group photo and then made our farewell to see each other again next year.
It was nice to see familiar and new faces at this meetup. Till then!

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the organising team for a wonderful planning and coordination to make this a success: Kayetankt, LuserinaBarows and Geraldinekee! Thank you!

Anyone you like to swap with a signed card with me?
If so, send me U2U

Best wishes,

Hi everyone! Not sure who sent a lovely postcard from this meetup to Postcrossing's PO box... but thank you so much for thinking of us! It's a really nice card, and it looks like there were lots of people in this meeting — we hope you all had fun. :)
