SGGURLS 10th Moderator Meeting

SGGURLS 10th Moderator Meeting

Singapore, 25th April 2009

It was another hot night of 32 degrees in Singapore. I took a cab driver to find PLU cafe. The damn cabbie kept wanting to drop me off at KTV lounges. He eyed me from the rear view mirror and kept asking if I was going to work? I presume he thinks I am a KTV hostess. ūüėõ Jeez, I must improve my dressing.

When I finally to the PLU cafe, the staff was very friendly and hospitable. However, they have a strange custom in the cafe. To get to the cosy lounge upstairs, I had to take off my heels. Waaaahhhhh…. me without my heels? Anyways I acquiesced and went up stairs. I was pleasantly surprised by PLU cafe’s tatami laid back style lounge. It was love as first sight. Now I fully understand why Hendrika (also from the SDAM, SGDOMSUBS network) kept suggesting that we hold our meetings in PLU. Andrew the owner of the PLU cafe set us up well. We had an incredible comfy and cool corner with the air-conditioning just above us. He‚Äôs so thoughtful and it was heaven for us just to escape from the sweltering heat outside.

 

We had a fabulous night and a very eventful one. SGGURLS achieved another big milestone by electing its first ever Chairwoman, co-Chairwoman, Official Biawak (or Vice-Something ..can’t really remember but I think it’s got to do with vice), Secretary, Treasurer, Chief Marketing Office, Chief Event Organizer, Webmistress, Liaison Officers to the various networks. I won’t tell you who the names of the officers since I won’t steal the Chairwoman’s and co-Chairwoman‚Äôs thunder. They’ll do the announcement.

 

We met the beautiful Elisa for the first time. She’s very sexy and her photos don‚Äôt do her justice. We really need to get a pro-photographer to do a nice portfolio for the gurls. This is where the SGGURLS 2009 Calendar project comes to the rescue. Miss Destynee Chua the chief editor outlined the overall approach for putting the calendar together. It was very exciting to hear her ideas. I really can’t wait to get this thing off the ground. The gurls closed quite a lot of outstanding tasks that night. I was awed by how far the SGGURLS’ team has progressed. Some of the SGGURLS’ mods have really grown tremendously and have stepped up to the leadership role. The team survived the forming, storming and norming stages. They put together some very sophisticated and fun events which were like a 100 times better that last years. I will let the Chairwoman & co-chairwoman to announce these exciting events.

GURLS’ NITE OUT

April 5, 2009

GURLS’ NITE OUT

Singapore, 4th April 2009.

It was a warm night but the 31 degree celcius didn’t stop the gurls from romping around town having a fabulous time eating, shopping, catching a movie "Confession of a Shopaholic", having dinner and chilling out in the hottest lesbian bar in town (TOCAME). We caught up with old friends whom we haven’t seen for a very long time. Some as long as 5 months (right, Ivy?). There were a lot of hot topics that were¬†brought forth¬†but not before playful Nic got the SM stuff out of her¬†blood.¬†This was¬†unfortunate (or¬†would be more¬†appropriate to say, it was¬†fortunate) for Adaline. The gurls indulged in a little photo taking so that¬†to remember that¬†friends matter. One can never have too many friends.¬†Friends¬†help¬†us remember the good, the fun¬†and the¬†silly times. There was laughter, tears and lots of goofing around.

When we were¬†a little bit more settled, the¬†hot topics poured out. They were Hendrika’s Fetish Ball 2009 plans, SGGURLS’ 2010 Calendar, Adaline’s Clothes X-change party, SGB’s request for SGGURLS’ participation on PLU Indignation and finalisation of the Bangkok Trip next week. The topics were no doubt hot and requries a longer discussion but with the Taiwnese version of beat it blaring in the background (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAVBpLFYW_U,) ¬†it’s hard to get into¬†in-depth¬†discussions. We touched on the topics at a very surface level.

Some¬†headway was made¬†for SGGURLS’ 2010 Calendar. Destynee will be our calendar’s Editor in Chief, Trish our Chief Graphic Designer, Zermine & Bobby¬†will be our photographers,¬†and Nic will be the overall¬†gopher. Our good friends who happened to be also the Tocame owners agreed to be one of the¬†locales for our photoshoot.

Hendrika and Nic brainstormed for the Fetish Ball 2009. We have to merge some of our meets together and jointly do this with SDAM. The advantage is that Hendrika is also a SDAM mod.

There will be a group of gurls going to Bangkok this Tuesday. If anyone still wishes to go, please contact Adaline for our SGGURLS and BANGKOKTRANS joint agenda.

Edwina, Trish and Nic discussed SG Butterfly’s request for SGGURLS’ participation in PLU Indignation forum. There was some concerns but overall there were most positives, then negatives.
