Malaysia Watch Forum 5th Anniversary GTG Report
« on: January 12, 2014, 04:39:53 PM »
Hi Guys,
This is a new thread for the 5th anniversary GTG report. Feel free to contribute your pics and comments here.
I'm sure all of us had a great time catching up and sharing our passion with fellow Malaysian watch enthusiasts.
In fact a bunch of us proceeded to a second round of drinking right after the main event concluded.
This year we were particularly honored with the participation of Mr. Tong Chee Wei, General Manager of FJ Benjamin Luxury Timepieces.
Thanks to all who participated in the GTG and made this into a successful event, especially our fellow members who came from outstation and overseas (namely dpkong & gucciposh, shamtv2555 and spouse and hanz079 - hope I did not miss anyone out) and a big thank you to all the MODS who did a great job organizing and setting things up.
And our sincere appreciation also goes out to WWII for sponsoring the WOW magazines for door gifts and our very own Hobbit for sponsoring 2 of the lucky draw prizes.
 
:thumbsup:

 :Cheers:

Yup, great session and a lot of chat with the members, even at the drinking session. Job well done for the Mods to make it possible :thumbsup:

You are missed Yikkie... was looking forward to seeing your Stratos Striking 10th Flyback but it was not to be... oh well... next time then.

I really enjoyed the GTG.
Splash and dash for me is kinda tiring but worth it!!
Got to meet really nice people and mingle with almost everyone.

It was good to finally meet Meoramri and his Landmaster was attention grabbing... a few were thoroughly impressed with it including me.

Good to meet 2 fellow Sabahans now residing in KL... keep up the good work... Sabah Boleh!! hehehe

Thanks to Donald for the awesome hotel arrangement which made me sleep all alone in a huuuuge room with no companion... sob sob.

Good to meet Woon as well... too bad he have to leave early, else we would have more fun... wink wink.

Siodee for putting up with my nonsense talk... cool fellow... hehehe

The turnout is excellent and I hope everyone had a great time like I have.

Will upload some photos later... not much though... at times like these, in the thick of the action discussions, sometimes I forgot I have a camera with me... hehehe

Congratz to the lucky draw winners and hopefully next year's event will be bigger.  :Cheers:
