13/1/2018, Special Saturday to be remembered as it was our first official Team Malaysia Gathering here at @danielwong's Big Hug Burger in SS15, Subang Jaya. My day started around 9.30 AM heading downwards south to pick up the new Team Malaysia Bunting and head west to SS15. Being the first person to reach Big Hug Burgers around 10.30 AM, I proceed to set up the Bunting in advance before others arrive.
Around 11 AM, @bitrocker2020 came together with @awesomianist, which came all the way from Miri, Sarawak and also @danieldoughty with his wife @viverridae, which come all the way from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. It's been a pleasure to finally meet them in person, which to tell us all Steemians are real 😆.
While waiting for the crowd to arrive at 12 PM, I've taken my time to start taking some photos around the venue before filled up with Steemians. As was told, it will have about 60+ steemians will be attending today's event as oppose we targeted 70, but still is an amazing record for a start.
Nice ambient lighting brighten up the place and plenty of seats
The Big Hug Burger's kitchen where those juicy burgers came from 😏 and kitchen crew began prepping for the event
Steemians begins to fill up the empty spaces around the restaurant and voila~! little that we knew the gathering had just started. Free flow of side dishes have been served beside the kitchen table and @danielwong is busying taking orders from steemians at the counter. Everyone waits patiently for their orders and are super excited for those STEEM Big Hug Burger to fill up their tummy.
Everyone having good time, good talk and good meal
Finally, it's my turn to order up after taking photos and videos around the premises. I've ordered the grilled lamb burger and top it up with some side dishes as well, and just in time before @bitrocker2020 settle down everyone and start giving his speech about the latest stats of Team Malaysia author and payout, steemfest Asia/Malaysia, @sireh giving steemit talks at the Museum Negara this coming Jan 23rd, @elizacheng on her Steem Junior projects this coming Feb, competition for design Team Malaysia T-shirt and the announcement of Big Hug accepting STEEM as payment for orders
Looking forward to continuing growing the teammalaysia community here together and the upcoming steemfest Asia/Malaysia which could possibly be in Sept 2018 according to @bitrocker2020. Good time always passes fast, and it brings us to our next session which is group photo. Prep up my mini tripod and find the perfect angles, sorry if you weren't taken clearly or cropped.
About 4 PM, we're been chased out politely as they need to close down the restaurant, and like any event that @maverickfoo hosted back in those days, which will take quite an effort to chase everybody out from the venue 😂.
The event went successfully and I'm able to meet lots of new steemians but time doesn't allow me to talk to everyone 😅. Hopefully, we'll meet at the next gathering or discord me for a TT (Yumcha) session.
Enjoy this short video clip that I've made for the gathering!
