Canon Mid Autumn Festival Gathering

The 8th month of the Lunar Calendar, is always one of my favourite, with many beautiful lanterns, festivities and eating mooncakes, all done together in the company of friends to chat and relax. I was invited by  Canon Singapore,  to an early Mid Autumn Festival Gathering at Artichoke Cafe and Bar, a very cosy restaurant with nice ambience and opened by my fellow alumnus from the University of Queensland.

A gathering of Singapore blogging community friends, some whom I have known for some time and also getting to know more new friends from the social media networks and blogging community in Singapore. Chatting, networking and catching up with our friendly Canon Singapore folks and PR friends from Ogilvy Public Relatios Worldwide. The delicious food served at Artichoke were really wonderful and delicious, transforming into a lively and heart warming gathering with lots of chatting on camera equipment on my table with Kevin, Callan and Jingwen.

What’s a Mid Autumn Festival gathering without mooncakes ? We were presented with different varieties and styles of the mooncakes, I really like the alcoholic ones, taste really “powerful” and I don’t take durian so I cannot accept durian mooncakes! This gathering was warm and cosy, lots of chatting and eating, many thanks to Canon Singapore and Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide for the awesome Canon Mid Autumn Festival Gathering! Do check out some of my photos taken during the gathering !

UQAAS Christmas Brunch at Artichoke Cafe & Bar

With the year 2010 coming close to an end, in the festive month of December, with all the year end celebrations, Christmas and gatherings, the friendly folks of University of Queensland Alumni Association of Singapore (UQAAS) organised a Christmas Brunch, a warm, fun and relaxed event at Artichoke Cafe & Bar, opened by a fellow University of Queensland graduate too! Do check out their facebook page too !

The brunch was great, the folks there were lovely, relaxed and chatty, having fun with my camera for my friends. A nice time to get together for the UQAAS Ex-Co members to discuss ideas, plans and activities for the year 2011. Moving forward in 2011, UQAAS will be planning more interesting activities and events for the graduates/members of University of Queensland.

On a personal note, there has been an increase in enquiries for my photography sharing/teaching and walkabout trips, looking at the response and camera playing from the UQAAS Ex-Co and during my networking sessions. Therefore, I am looking forward to plan such sharing and walkabout trips for the graduates/members of UQAAS.

As 2010 draws to a close, I would like to wish all my readers/followers and fellow Graduates of UQAAS, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year ! Stay tuned for more UQAAS events & activities !
