10th Anniversary Japanese Meetup Group !

4 Mar

25th of January was the day to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our Japanese meetup group, originally conceived by Hasumi. I first stumble upon it after joining meetup.com and wanted to improve on my Japanese. Learnt it for 2 decades without ever improving, I blame myself for it. I used to attend every Saturday for a couple of months until a change of heart  had other lessons on weekends. About 50 odd people turned up, some whom I had never even seen! It was fun mingling and I was the “unauthorised photographer”. The interior was mad love. POP CULTURE!

IMG_5349 IMG_5350 Leslie taking the stage before…… IMG_5351 Getting Jerry to sing.



He speaks. IMG_5353 And speaks. IMG_5354 Before Leslie got so fed up and told him to sing directly, instead of giving some long Oscar speech. Yes Leslie, I still remember “This Jerry talks too much! I ask you to sing, not give some long story about how you join the group!” IMG_5355 Poor Jerry, pulled an epic stunt of X-ing the Kanji he couldn’t pronounce hehe IMG_5356 Jerry, your enthralled audience!
