Hey Hanz, book a flight or just take a nice leisurely drive down the Pan Borneo HW. Drinks and food on me. Remember to bring along that beautiful heirloom you were showing off to me in August (I still haven't got mine!!!!!). Wow, if you are attending, the GTG will be like the 1962 Cobbold Commission all over again.

Pics afterwords!

You mean pics of the adult entertainment we will be having?? Cannot lar....some members here could be under-aged (not good for their moral development), some could be overaged (not good for their health). Hey, mods must be straight and clean, shouldn't be visualising such humsub things.

After 4 pm is great. Hilton is a good location. Shop in Sarawak Plaza closes about 6pm or so. Do you also want to visit his dad's shop in old town? I think he closes earlier around 4.30pm. There's another shop in Tabuan Jaya but I have not seen the collection nor the display case, if there is one at all. Owner regularly posts on mudah.

No other local seems to be responding and I won't comment here about the adult entertainment part. Will only discuss that after everyone present has been scanned/strip-searched for bugs and hidden cams...   :Laughing_on_floor:


contact me on zero one nine double-eight double-seven double-three seven

whatsapp on zero one six eight zero nine seven double-two seven

dpkong sarawak plaza hour asia closes at 7 during weekdays so its ok~~i think we better show the best to our guest. although its incomparable  to kl one, but still boleh lah. Adult entertainment ?? i think enkidu is more into that rather than watches ! lolz. contact me on 0168108369

Guys, Don't put any pressure on yourselves. I am really OK with KCH. At one time, many many years ago, I contemplated moving there. That's another old story of course......

C'mon Hanz, flight distance from KK to KL is 1600km. The flight distance From KK to Kuching is only about 800km. So it's just half way. Good chance to see some watches, visit new places, make new friends, I am sure it's worth the time and the little money to be spent.  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Hi, Steve + Dpkong,

So, what are the specific plans? Or maybe all of us should just meet up somewhere (and at a specific time) 1st and then decide (only four of us still, should be easy).  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

regards,
Enkidu

I might be able to bring someone along to increase the size to five.

Since hanz079 is arriving earlier, I might try to take off work earlier to guide him around. Meeting up at 4pm or earlier and then making plans from there would be ideal. First stop would likely be the watch shop nearby and then if time permits, another one not a very long drive away. After that, f&b at the suggested location.

Is that OK?

Hi, Dpkong, Sounds good. I'll contact you or steve once I have finished my work (should be around 3pm normally) and discuss the place + time of meeting. Like I told Hanz earlier, just don't go anywhere exciting / interesting without me!!  :laugh: :laugh:

Where's the pub? Near 360 Xpress Hotel kah?
Since I am arriving early, most probably will be wandering around town waiting till gtg time.

The pub is called "The Den" but it only opens at around 5pm. It's at the end of the row of shops, same as the entrance to 360 Express.

Since Enkidu is staying at Hilton, I suggest meeting up at the lobby of either hotel. The walk to Sarawak Plaza is not far from either place.

What say you guys?

Guys,

OK, no problem with me. I'll be at the 360Express Hotel at approx. 4pm. If I cannot be there by 4pm, will contact one of you guys.

I'll be the fat balding guy wearing 2 watches, so will be easy for you guys to spot.  ;D

So Hanz gets to be shown around by dpkong earlier? Just take him to the Sarawak Museum. If still got time, to the Islamic Museum, Chinese Museum, Brooke's old palace and the famous Tua Pek Kong temple...... No visits to the watch shops please...

best regards,
Enkidu (Loo)

Met up with Enkidu, steveting and hanz079 at around 4pm and headed out watch hunting.

Firstly, some ROOs. I'm liking the rubberclad a lot now. So hard to choose between the ROOs..




RO vs ROO




ROOs, ROC and Daytona group shot




I like this piece..




RO on my wrist. Nice and perfect fit for a 41mm. Amazing AP quality which one can really feel . Rolex feels cheap compared to this.




Table shot




Dinner...




I believe hanz079 has much better pictures with a proper camera.
