Apokripos (apokalypse) | 3321 comments A huge thanks to Kuya Doni's kness this one came up!


So, talks have been going that there will be a meet up sometime this year. It is a proposal since time immemorial ever since I've joined this group but for some reason the plan always fizzles... just talks... yada..yada..yada..yada...

Spurred by a broken(?) knee and a visit from a resident doctor yonder in St. Lukes, it has come to my attention Supreme Lord Invay... errr... what you humans call by the sane Baltic name jzhunagev, that people are clamoring for a meet-up, a reunion (as some of you have called), or an eyeball (for all of those potential partners that we'll tout as this group's first love-team, yihhee!! ♥♥♥) and now with my supreme Power of creating/opening thread I'm opening this topic! (Baritone voice for good reading effect...ahihihi!! ☺☺☺)

So....

Are you up for a meet-up?

When do you want it to occur? Judging that it isn't the end of the world yet. Or will we wait for Armageddon or the Kingdom Come for this, our, plans to get to fruition?

Who are those potential creatures who will be my phalanx of soldiers when my planet invades the Planey (really it's just a small planet...) Horkluff?

err....

I mean...

Who are those willing people who will want to attend the said event?

Are there some task delegation regarding food, the place where will it happen and any other stuff I've overlooked as of this post?


I want to hear your opinion on this...

Filipinos let your voices be heard...


Basta ko ha! Sagot ko ang kwentuhan! And I'm willing to do and do what I do best....
I will be leading the discussion...

Ahihihihi!! ☺☺☺

Comment.... AAAAWWWWAAAYYYYYY!!!!


(aS usual pardon my verbosity, once again I'm having my tantrums... Ehehehehe!!)

Apokripos (apokalypse) | 3321 comments Ohhhh... that was a great one!

And here I am, thinking that we meet at INDEPENCE DAY! (I say you gotta love that movie! You couldn't miss that White House Explosion!) THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW...


(As usual Bluemoon we're ripping this topic off! Ahahahaha! ☺☺☺)

(Just kidding, too)


message 3: by Apokripos (new)

Apokripos (apokalypse) | 3321 comments No... that's just OK Bluemoon...

But I think the place you suggested are too much pangmayaman...

Maybe we want some decent place na pwedeng mag-ingay... kasi nakakahiyang magtwanan ng malakas sa Rockwell dinig kasi sa buong mall sa sobrang konti ng tao...

Ahahahaha! ☺☺☺

Yup, i totally agree, Rockwell is not a good place (still giggling at the thought about security people breaking us because a usual Rockwell customer heard laughters in the corridor, apparently, laughter does not mix well with her tea.)

How many people are in favor for a meet up in Quezon City? We can hold it in UP Diliman, students there do not care about boisterous laughters. Or QC circle, have you seen the place lately? nice vast lawns. Of course if we hold it in these places, expect it to be a "picnic" type of party.
I therefore suggest the following, hmmm...
potluck works most of the time unless someone here is into catering, it won't hurt. Bringing money to chip in the load is lighter than carrying a casserole.
timing the event is essential, it creates the mood for the whole thing, if we schedule it in the morning, we can actually stretch the meeting till lunch and even do it for one whole day. the problem though is that noon and the sun are a very hot pair, catching heat stroke is not very cool. Unless, of course people do not mind getting a tan and we get lots of refreshments.
If ever, we do it late in the afternoon, we need to relocate once evening comes. No matter how many people insist that candlelit dinner with talks looks romantic, it won't if you're in the middle of a field, and also, dried grass and candles do not make a good pair. Besides, I think the Circle closes at night.
Or maybe, someone has a friend who owns a cozy coffeeplace who is willing to reserve a certain number of tables for one laughing crowd. the place is intimate enough for a meet up and not too vulgar for other customers.
These are my thoughts, if people decide to meet in a comedy bar or in a different planet(wink, wink), i'd still go as long as I'm not on duty.


message 6: by Chachic (new)

Chachic | 262 comments I'm game for a meet up if it's not too far. :) I live in QC.


message 7: by Aaron Vincent (new)

Aaron Vincent (aaronvincent) | 2053 comments I think we should first lists who are the attendees then we'll decide base on the number., like if there's 5 from Manila then 2 from Quezon City then the place should be closer to Manila and stuffs like that to decide.,

Second thing, the date should be agreed at least one month before so everyone could clear their schedules for that date. I personally suggest Sunday cause I know some people here works on Saturdays. I also think we should held it this summer so the students won't be bothered from their loads of schoolworks.

If anyone would agree, the labor day which is a Saturday, sounds good to me. Any ideas more for the date?


message 8: by Maryse (new)

Maryse (belle_maryse) | 151 comments I'd like to join too, but QC's too far for me. :(

So, comment below yung mga gustong sumama...

Me and Aaron are counting 'yung mga taong sure na sasama...

I think mga 3rd ng April natin to gawin...

Yung tipong tapos na ang school at lahat ng requirements and clearance ay napasa na...

At walang gaanong dealine ang mga may trabaho...

message 21: by Lynai (new)

Lynai | 1188 comments I would also love to come if only the meet up will be held in Iloilo City. Hehee.


message 22: by Apokripos (new)

Apokripos (apokalypse) | 3321 comments Lynai, that's possible. As long you'll pay for our air fare for Iloilo.

Bwahahahahaha!!! ☺☺☺

Hi Lynai, Ilonggos unite! I'm from Iloilo, too! I mean, that's where my family comes from. But i reside and work in Metro Manila, Makati to be specific.

MOA sounds like a good place...

If sagot ni Lynai ang fare... Sama ako!!! hahaha


message 27: by Ranee (new)

Ranee | 1902 comments game! I don't care where the venue is as long as it is in Metro Manila. I'm a loyal commuter who believes that I'll never be lost as long as I can find my way to any MRT/LRT station. As in, they're the best landmark here in Manila.
but I'm partial to having it in QC, I can stay out late without the hassle of thinking how to go home (mahal taxi from MOA going to QC ha.)


message 28: by Lynai (new)

Lynai | 1188 comments Hello Lai. Good to know there is also an Ilonggo here. Do you speak Ilonggo? :)

Jzhun & Kris: Hanap muna ako madami $$$$$ para sagot ko na fare nyo. Which might take one century. In the meantime, if you can't wait for one century, you can do the meet-up in QC or somewhere else more convenient, depende sa mapagkasunduan nyo.Haha. Blame it on our archipelagic nation. :)

Rhys: Punta ka dito Iloilo? Sagot mo ang fare. Haha. :))


message 29: by Kris (new)

Kris Gomez (kris040282) we can go home before the last trip of mrt/lrt.. its going to be fun..

I am also from QC. inside UP campus. We can meet there but we cannot stay after sunset.. (madilim eh)


message 30: by Ranee (new)

Ranee | 1902 comments kris: oooh... cool. extended chika inside the mrt/lrt! it's fun,fun, fun!

joselito: tomato kick looks promising. are they open on Sundays? i hope i'm not on duty that day.


message 31: by Apokripos (new)

Apokripos (apokalypse) | 3321 comments I'm sorry but I'm too far away from QC, given that we'll this on a Sunday. I even dared to go to Bookay-ukay once but my cowardliness got the better of me 'coz I might get lost. And what's more depressing is that some of the books in Bookay-ukay is expensive in comparison to Booksale. So I've decided maybe it's not worth the trip.

But on anyday, someone might prove me wrong about going to Bookay-ukay. ☺☺☺


message 32: by Kris (new)

Kris Gomez (kris040282) Hi guys! will those who wanted to join the meet up tell where they live so that we could come up with a nice place that is accessible to everyone... hehehe..

Aaron Vincent (aaronvincent) | 2053 comments Already done that list with the possible attendees

Aaron - Manila
Jzhun - Manila
Lynai - Iloilo
Ranee - Quezon City
Chachic - Quezon City
Maryse - Manila
Kris - Quezon City
Faye Ann - Quezon City
Twistedmoe - ?
Arlene - ?
Ariel - Manila
Lai - Manila
Doni - Quezon City
Joselito - Manila
Jamacaiska - Makati

--------------------

Manila - 6
Quezon City - 5
Makati - 1
Iloilo - 1

-------------------

So far, we have 6 from Manila so for now it would be somewhere in Manila. But if we would agree to compromise and just meet halfway, I would suggest Pasig that is near from QC, Manila and Makati. And there are also lots of cool places is Pasig.

Apokripos (apokalypse) | 3321 comments Luneta na nga lang! O kaya Intramuros sa may Fort Santiago!

Tapos basahin natin yung Noli o El Fili!


Ahahahaha!

Ginawa ko namang fieldtrip ang meet-up natin!

Just kidding!!

But seriously kung di kalayuan sa Quezon city game ako. Huwag nga lang sa mga parteng Pa-Novaliches na... Malayo na ko don ehh... Ok lang din sa QC Circle. I think the place is much more conducive rather than Luneta. Pero naranasan ko nang magbasa sa isang malamlam na hapon sa Luneta. Nakakainis nga lang kasi andaming nanlilimos sa kin kaya ayun lumipat na lang ako ng lugar. Pumunta na lang ako sa Robinsons. Ahehehehe! Sana dun tayo sa place na walang ganun. Sa dami ng mamamalimos sa tin tiyak ko mauubos ang pera't pagkain natin. Nakakaawa naman kung itatatboy natin yung mga tao. I think we should choose a place that'll leave us be and let us be. (Whatever that means!)

Ahehehehehe!! :D

message 45: by Maryse (new)

Maryse (belle_maryse) | 151 comments Makati-Manila border ako, so anywhere in Makati, Manila, and maybe Mandaluyong area, pwede ako. So long as its on a weekend and I'm not on duty too :)


message 46: by K.D. (new)

K.D. Absolutely (oldkd) | 6065 comments This is great! I was surprised to see so many of us interested to join this meet-up! Looks like we will have fun!

So, Aaron. Majority rules. Tell us where and when and let's just do it!

Anyway, with the enthusiasm shown here, I think that this will not be the last. We can schedule the next one in another city (Makati) or time (maybe a dinner on a weekday) to see the our other Goodreads friends.
