In the wake of our gathering last week, we would like to express our feelings of joy as Christmas draws near and the end of the year dawns over us!
Our Gathering this time was held at Ethnicraft Alam Sutera; though of course many people recognize it better as Kayu Kayu Restaurant. Sitting next to a famous restaurant, Ethnicraft is a hidden gem. Offering visitors furnitures worth lavishly spending on and aesthetics to die for. With the comfort radiated from the place, it is no wonder that people often times take pictures in the place; it offers a sense of home! If Kayu Kayu is about a mixture of good flavors, Ethnicraft is an amalgam of exceptional interior design and alluring architecture.
The gathering itself was a success, with so many community members showing up, craving for connections and newly-made friendship based on similar interests and hobbies. Of course, this was not the case at first, where everyone sat awkwardly in a room with people they didn't know (yet). All it took was a little catalyst, a little jump start towards conversations and interactions to start the day and everything is, as they say, history. Our community members didn't only find new friends but also new sources to learn more from each and every new people they meet! To further increase the newly established relationship, we had a photography competition, which 3 lucky winners took the prize home from (@dav_eat, @hirroharry, @emmalxndr)
Worth mentioning is also how for the first time we have decided to create a mini bazaar where our community members can either sell or buy things from the prepared space. It was against all odds, a great success. Thank you @monzefloristry @rumahkakakadik @jessincase.id @bofbyk @michikoandmustard @sienamarble @jabonbymartene @cloverandflower :)
All in all, this has further motivated us to keep on continuing our Kanekin Gatherings, as we see again, time to time, how the people we connect through it, benefit greatly beyond our expectations; with each one we hold taking it to the next level every time.
We will see you in the next gathering! Cheers :)
