Filipinos on myLot: Would you consider meeting up?

Philippines
October 19, 2008 8:31am CST
I have been with this wonderful community for over a year already and since I have started, I have made friends with several myLot members. It's really fun especially meeting Filipinos whom I share a common interest with -- myLot. Wouldn't it be great if we get the chance to have a grand eyeball? I mean, I have always been wondering how exciting it will be for all of us to meet up. Then, probably, we could post some pictures here at myLot for the world to see...

Hi dolce_vita78, The beauty of Mylot is that it is possiable to arrange meeting each other from your part of the world, I have met one of Mylotters last week and it was as great meeting, we talked for 6 hours till he had to leave and it seems like just five minutes, it was fun and we are planning to meet other Mylotters soon, so you never know you might be able to meet some from your part of the world.

A get together would be great... but it would take a lot of planning since Filipino members live in different parts of the country... the main thing to resolve is where it will be held... and when... since most of us are working or are taking care of a family... we should all agree to a time and date... I hope this sort of activity will push through... it would be nice for us to meet up... and just hang around...

Planning such activity would definitely require several people to work on it...

this is a good idea and i think it can be done. perhaps you can start the ball rolling by making preparations. i've been to a couple of meet-up parties from the different forums i'm a part of and it was really great. networking is a great way to meet new friends and perhaps have new business contacts so a grand eyeball party for filipino mylotters is definitely a good idea. count me in if it does push through. cheers!

Hey, that's nice. Anywhere in the Philippines as venue would be just wonderful. And it would be nice too if the place to meet is a place I haven't been to yet. Organizing such events though would be tough but who knows, nothing is impossible. So meanwhile, we keep on mylotting to have extra money for future meeting of Filipino mylotters. Mabuhay!

hello dolce_vita. i like your idea. a grand eyeball for all filipino mylotters would be great. although i bet that organizing such an event wouldn't be so easy because mylotters are from various parts of the country. an organizing committe and cooperation of all members is necessary for the vent to be a success.

That's why it would be good to have regional groups just like what Robert mentioned in his response...

I love to be with the group getting together on time. I just hope that we can get some funds to make this happen. Though Philippines is not as huge as the US or the UK, we come from different places and if we are going to get the party on, in on such great place too, I don't think a lot of members can be there. You see, I am from the Visayas and it will need some money to get to the capital, Manila. But I still wish, someday, a mylot get-together party in the Philippines will happen, someday, soon.

[i]Hello dolce_vita78, It's a great idea. We Filipinos love to gather and meet new friends, I think a lot will come as long as it is affordable and convenient. We should create a Filipino mylot organization if you care. Maybe we can start by region and then have a national convention. Sweet! Regards. [/i]

If we could all agree on this event, I am sure that we will all be able to look for an affordable and convenient way to make it happen..

I think you have the greatest idea there, robert. We can have a regional organization first, then a national convention may follow. I wish to be part of the organization if this happen.

Having a regional group would make it more convenient. The regional groups could probably host an annual gathering for all the members. Say for instance, NCR group can host this year's gathering for all Filipino myLot members. Then it would be the Cebu group next year. Then the Baguio City group... and so on...

This is a great idea... we can start adding Filipinos as our friends to start with. I am relatively new here in myLot and I am currently working in Cebu City. Hope to meet fello myLotters soon!

i think this idea sounds interesting.. with the growing numbers of mylotters from the philippines everday, this sure is going to be very fun! but then again.. we are located in different parts of the country.. where should we meet up?hehehe maybe we can meet for a chritmas party or a summer party perhaps.. how could we organize it?hehehe mabe we should start per city first.. like i am from cebu and perhaps invite all mylotters from cebu to a get together.. then well be carrying it our to a national level if we can!hahahahaha

well, i am not that sure if that would be possible because we are located in different areas. it would definitely cost much if we meet up somewhere. and i am not sure if we will get a consensus as to the place we will meet since it will be unfair for others to travel if they will come from a far area. well, if someone would answer for all the expenses, maybe it can be done. lol!

hello dolce, I wonder what happened to the plan. i got a friend who tried to planned this last few months but sadly they didn't talk about it, and it seems that my interpretation their is that the plan didn't pursue. it was supposed to be in megamall but too bad in deed.
