Meetup #9 - Penang's Steemit Sharing Session | Yumcha Session | BHB Lunch

in meetup •  last year

Penang 100degrees Steemit Sharing Session

Continue from my previous post, the event was held at MSOGO in Prangin Mall which is a 60,000 square feet of 3 level co-working space that I got lost a few times 😂, and was greeted by our organizer, @currykhoo and @patriciawpy of the night before the event started.

Light refreshment was served to people who sign up for the session, and soon after our arrival, people started to flock into MSOGO. I've talked to few Penang Steemians that I use to chat with them through Discord, and finally meet them here such as @killuminatic, @izyan, @jieh, @tadstrange and @legendchew.

Mingling before the event started, light refreshment as well

Venue of the Hall

We have about 30-40 people joining for this session and the session started as soon as most of the participants had arrived. We have our speaker @bitrocker2020 rocking the stage sharing some keynotes of Steemit such as,

  • Introduction to Steemit
  • Fundamental Function of Steemit
  • Statistic of Team Malaysia User and Post Payout
  • Tags and Keyword Usage
  • Where does the Money come from (Can't miss that one out 😉)
  • Team Malaysia Growth and Pass Events
  • Question and Answer Session

Everyone is listening

After the session, a token of appreciation was given to our speaker of the night, @bitrocker2020 by the organiser, @currykhoo and a group photo is always compulsory for such event as a memory and content 😬. People mingle around together after the group photo, talking about Steemit, asking the ​question for our speaker @bitrocker2020 and of course @davidke20 and I helped out answering some of the questions​ too.

Big Smile 😬

Yumcha Session

After every Steemit Session, there is always yumcha session follow up and Penang which is famous for it's food is one of the thing that we can't miss out. @currykhoo and @patriciawpy brought us out to have some famous Wonton Noodles (云吞面) along Chulia Street.

Penang Wonton Noodles

After the late dinner, we walk towards a somewhat unique bar named "Pokok" (Tree) which previously was a car park land then renovated and build up with some cargo container and formed a place for hanging​ out by local Penangites and tourist.

It's pretty full considering​ it is a Tuesday Night and not even weekend, the environment is dimly​ filled up with some vibrant LED lights and low lighting making it a nice hangout place after work for some drinks.

Going Back KL

Good morning Steemians! We had our breakfast at Lee Huat Cafe (thanks to Google) which is a hawker gathered place to serve amazing foods to the locals. I've ordered myself an Oyster Porridge with Meat which cost only RM4.50 (0.36 STEEM) as I'm not a heavy breakfast guy.

Lots of Hawker Stall and People

My Breakfast, Oyster Porridge with Meat served

After the breakfast, is time to hit the road down south heading back to KL in about 3 hours 45 minutes that covers a distance of 350km as we have a lunch meet up with @firepower, @shenoy, @sjennon and @varunpinto at Big Hug Burger Setapak before their flight out of Malaysia later night.

Stop for Toilet and Smoke break on one of the rest station along the way

My Lunch, the Dancing Cow

We arrived Big Hug Burger around 1.30PM to meet up with the owner, @danielwong while waiting @firepower and his gang to arrived. Once we all arrived, is time to order some STEEM burger which is the first time for them.

It's a happy afternoon lunch and everybody just loves the STEEM burger, @firepower even ordered himself another extra burger 😂. After the lunch, we all having some mingle session while @varunpinto and @shenoy are busy photoshoot, video and interviewing with @danielwong on his Big Hug Burger pay with STEEM which then joined by @happycrazycon and their son (shy shy ☺️)

Time passes fast in Malaysia, and we all have to get out from Setapak before the traffic jam comes during the peak hours. Have a safe flight back @firepower, @shenoy, @sjennon and @varunpinto and I'll see you all back this coming September.

Good to see you too 😊

Great write up and report as usual.... I was talking to @karinzdailygrind and told her that she started the ball rolling with the meet up in Penang during CNY. We convinced @jieh & @tadstrange to attend. I believe they did asked their friends to join too. Northern region is growing and hope it will be self sustaining in a few months time... good job to you all


I did ask my friends to come but they weren't convinced. 😞


Don't worry... important thing is that you already met up with a few people during the event. :)

No problem @legendchew, great to be there too 😆

I bet it requires a lot of dedications and time to introduce steemit to fellow potential users. And all the food you guys had definitely do the justice after the hard work! Keep it up!! :D


Haha that's true, food is always one of the best reward after all success 😂
