*NEW* 7 January 2012 meetup!


1st ever Official Singapore Postcrossing Meetup

On 7th January 2012, a hot and sunny day, 14 of us, new and experienced Postcrossers, met up at Fika Swedish cafe.

We talked about postcards and stamps, and shared our received postcards and collection with each other. tincy brought some really interesting postcards to show us and lohsmeng brought his expensive collection of old Singapore postcards.

Due to the seating arrangement on a long table, it was hard for the Postcrossers to interact with those sitting on extreme ends. Will take note of this for future meetups planning :S

We passed around cards for signing - a total of 14 signatures! And we took a group photo at the end of the session. I also promoted the forum and our Singapore community forum a little ;)

Thanks lohsmeng for printing our Meetup card - it is very kind and thoughtful of you :) :)
And thanks everyone for coming and making this event a success! :) :) :)
Big love to all :love::love::love:

Well, we have only done one meeting so far, but in our last meeting, we all brought some postcards from our collections to show other people, and we also signed lots of cards for other people. We had drinks in an upstairs cafe and we chatted and laughed a lot, and just got to know one another better.

You are free to come and go as you please! Please join us if you can :)


Sign cards for...???

Will moving the date to January be a better idea if it allows more people to come for the meeting? :) :)

Let me know what you think :)

yes it's the first time!!!

there has already been tons of meetups in finland, germany and even a couple over at our neighbouring malaysia.

there's quite an active group of new and old postcrossers in singapore, and we're such a small country, so this meetup is looooong overdue!

Thanks Wezzywei!!

I'm thinking of Fika Swedish Cafe (Halal) at 257 Beach Road near Arab St - how does that sound??

Here's the menu

Am not driving so won't find super ulu places.. haha.

this one is fairly accessible from nicoll highway mrt (circle line; 1 bus stop) and bugis mrt (slightly further)

any other suggestions??

ctzoo,

The special thing about Postcrossing meetup, apart from meeting fellow postcrossers, is the meetup postcard.

Example



p/s: Of course as a small meetup group we wouldn't have our own printed cards to sign on, but we can bring our favourite type of cards - city views, whatever. It's not compulsory, but I'll get y'all autographs!

Postcrossers will sign on the cards and these cards will be sent to themselves, friends and those who collect the cards (Postcrossing Meet-Up RR)
