Finally it happened!
We planned for this meet up since March.
I'd like to say thank you to you all who made it happened. It was the second big meetup in Bangkok that I joined and it was the biggest one i ever have. Normally TBs contacted me directly to meet with one to two people because they don't come in the same time.
August 15 2008 the meet up date. The week before that day my boss told my department (40 peopls) that he'd like to have a thank you party for our hard work on August 15! He booked Enigma Theater At Siam Paragon Department Store included food and alcohol and saying that if you don't drunk, don't go home.
I told him to postpone haha but he couldn't because he had to leave to England the week after so I had to choose between a free movie ticket in the luxury seat which costs about two-three thousands baht and free of charge of alcohol and the Meetup? Well, we planned the meetup since March and I'd love to meet them all. So I chose the meetup and I'm sure my boss and team wouldn't have fun without me anyway .. booh!
The meet up point was at Hippie Hi Bar. I arrived there since 7pm at the same time with Josh. Dodge and JC were already there. Ten minutes later it was raining so hard. We had to move to upstairs and waited for the others with concern that how could they came here. Anyway it was lucky that we booked here as the first choice was at Rooftop of Pranakorn Bar-if it rains, we all wet.
TB Rini supposed to be here since one hour ago but she's silent.
And Rini taught us a new vocab that SOON means one hour :D
I got a call from lovely Najiah but poor her that she called a stupid me :D Because she asked me where's the bar? I explained "If Burger King behinds you, go straight on." She said "I don't know where's Burger King, can you tell me how to go from McDonald?" Eh.. McDonald? IS there a McDonald on Kaosarn Road? I thought. Stupid me, there is! Lucky she found the way by herself :D Sorry Najiah :P
Then Jason came and then Andrea We (Dodge/Aioh/May and I) discussed each other that it would be about 20 people so we should make a group of them to give our contacts so that it would be easy to check if they come, if they find the place, etc. or not. So four of us took care about 5people each. Nijiah was my responsible, Andre too but he didn't reply my message earlier so I didn't know that he confirmed or not. But great that finally he showed up. Then Tukta, Dodge's friend joined. I think she liked the meet up since she joined us the first one.
And soon (one hour) Rini showed up with a nice smile. I met her first time here. You look younger than I though! Cute. We made a loud noise as we were many people. There were about 5 big tables on the second floor. We took the big one but when the others came we invaded the other tables - sounds like our private party! :D
Aioh came late as she was stuck in the main street because of the rain. Ale came after. At first he told me maybe he can't join as he didn't feel well but i called him again when i was at the party and told him how much fun we've had, he changed his mind! Great!
Christian and his friend came with bear feet because it was flooding outside.
I remember that it was so fun and we all were drunk. We moved from Hippie Hi Bar around 11pm to Gazebo. We can take care of ourselves at Hippie Hi Bar but at Gaze bo, as Najiah said on her blog, let the pictures say! What I can remember was one woman fell down on the floor after she showed her dancing step. One woman can't move after took many shots of Teguila but she said she hates it :D One man showed his tongue and his belly all the night and the rest did an incredibly dancing - non stop!
Usually Gazebo closes around 3am so we moved to eat something else at the other place. Rini said goodbye as she's tired. It was nice meeting here-she didn't drink alcohol but coke can make her drunk and laugh all night long as well :D I gotta learn! Jear and Najiah sent Hannie back to sleep after Tequila stole her consciousness :D Then they're back and joined us. Andre left as he had to take the bus to Phangan Island in the next morning. (and we knew later that he missed the bus!) Christian and his friend were gone but I don't remember since when.
Ale wanted to have Pizza. Jason led us to find but the shop was closed so we agreed to go to eat Padthai instead. I went to 7-11. After got out, they told me plan changed. We'd go to BUDDY BAR which is open all night instead. Ok.
Here at Buddy we just ate, chatted and drank water. No alcohol-it was too much already from Gazebo! I went back home around 5am. Some of them still stayed there. I couldn't. My head touched the pillow since I stepped back and slept immediately. What an amazing party.
Thank you all for coming here and giving each other a blast. I don't know how many pictures we took - more than thousands? But thousands pictures or thousand words can't even explain million thousand laughs on that night for sure.
Cheers to you all and ciao!
