Chowmeet in Hongkong in March 2012

I will be in Hongkong again in March and having had mini-chowmeets with Charles Yu in the last two years, I was hoping to have a chowmeet again. Sadly, Charles will not be in HK this year in March, but as there are so many HK-Hounds I was hoping that it will be possible to set up a meeting.

I will be in HK and available for a chowmeet from 21st to 24th of March. So I hope there are others interested in a chowmeet!

          A HK Chowmeet without Sir Charles is like the cast of Miss Saigon without the Engineer ;-)

          No chance of you changing your mind about a trip to HK, old chap?

            Why is Charles not going this time?

            1. re: M_Gomez

              Charles has personal reasons for not coming to HK this year, sad as it is.

              But I hope you two would be up for the chowmeet?

                Afraid I can't make it this year, NilesCable - it clashes with a long business trip I need to make to India during the same period.

                  Sad to hear, but business comes first.

              2. re: M_Gomez

                @ M_Gomez . Both my parents have passed away, so no point of me to visit Hong Kong EVERY year!. In a way its good, since now, I can save up my points for another visit to S'pore in the future! May be we can have S'pore chowmeets with Fourseasons, klyeoh and yourself instead??!! For once, let you folks do all the arranging work! Ha!!!!

                Wow!! Thanks for your compliment, klyeoh! I'm so honored!! Glad I'm being compared to the Engineer and NOT Miss Saigon! Ha!!!!!

            2. I'd be very interested in this, but I'll be out of HK for most of the time between 17th of March and the 8th of April.

                Most of the time is not all of the time, so maybe we can find a date where you are there. I am hoping to have a bigger chowmeet this time, the first was with Charles and Erica and the second just with Charles, saddly I always arrived to late for one of the big chowmeets!

                  On March 17th, I leave for a training in Los Angeles. I will be there until at least the 25th. Then, depending on the health of a family member, I will either fly to New Jersey or back to Hong Kong. If I fly back to Hong Kong, then I will be there until April 4th, when I leave for 5 days in Turkey. If I fly to New Jersey, then I will probably fly straight to Turkey from there; however, there is a chance that I might return to Hong Kong on April 1st before leaving for Turkey on the 4th. Generally speaking, it would be easier for me to plan something for March if it were before the 17th or if it could wait until I get back from Turkey on April 8th.

              2. I am interested. Will be in Singapore early March, but should be back by then. Also consider Macau!

                  I haven't found the time in the past to go to Macau, but I definitely would be interested. But I think its better to see first who would be on for a chowmeet and talk about where to go later.
