Honolulu Tweetup!

Albert and I are heading back to the Islands — one of our favorite vacation spots! — and we would be greatly honored if you could accompany us for a lunch tweetup. We would love to meet all of our Hawaiian Twitter friends in person. Feel free to invite friends!

Last year we met a lot of amazing geeks, and we’d love to meet some more! Come join us for lunch and geeky chit chat. Last year we got into a discussion about gadgets. I think we’ll see a higher percentage of iPhones this year. ;) Maybe we’ll talk about favorite iPhone apps instead. :)

I attended LA Mixers & Tubefilter‘s "The New Media Vault" event at the Crocker Club on Thursday, Feb 26th, 2009 and had a great time! It was great meeting Twitter friends for the first time, as well as making new ones!

The venue was quite unique. It use to be an old bank that was converted into a bar. We had a ton of fun exploring the vaults and such. ;)

One thing I forgot to bring this night was a CF card for my Digital SLR. Boy I was bummed! So I can’t tell you I how happy I was when Wm. Marc let me borrow one of his. Thanks so much Marc, you saved the night!

More about the event.
Beautiful photos taken by Albertech.net. Thank you so much!

SF Swig Tweetup

Filed under Geek Get-Togethers

@mcnitt, @daynah, & @emilychang at SwigI’m up in Northern Cali this weekend again to visit relatives. My cousin goes to school in the city, so Uncle and Auntie asked @dragonal and me to take her to her apartment. That was a great opportunity to have a SF Tweetup!

So I planned a SF Swig Tweetup in the morning, and met up with everyone later tonight. It was nice!

Traffic to the city was kind of bad, so we didn’t get a chance to eat a big meal. We met up with @hotmilkgt and had dinner at the pizza parlor called Milan’s. I tweeted that, and who should walk in but @tonydg and @mr_o? ;) Funny. Now I wished I lived in SF… friends are just within walking distance!

After our quick dinner, we headed back to Swig… and spent the next three hours geeking out. Towards the end, we were kind of kicked out of the bar because we were all just playing games on our phones. lol

@inferno10 @emilychang @mingyeow @kyeung808 @ckueda @hotmilkgt @tonydg @mr_o @mcnitt — Thank you for meeting up with us! We had a great time!

DisneyTweetup People, come this way!

Liana and I organized a #DisneyTweetup and boy was it a lot of fun! We met up an hour early to do a photo walk through Disneyland, and then met up with the rest of the group at ESPN Zone at 9pm. Before we knew it, it was getting close to midnight. Lots of geek talk and new friendships were made that night. :)

Here are some photos, most taken by @dragonal!

YogurtLand Tweetup

I made it out to the first LA Tweetup at YogurtLand! It was fun seeing @christinelu again, and meeting her son, @mikeprasad from gamerGirl, @rocknrollgeek from TechZulu, and @jspepper from Pop! PR Jots.

Excited to see each other, we forgot to take photos of the yogurt! But you can trust me when I tell you that it was very yummy. ;) My favorite of course is Taro! You have to try it!

And what’s a Tweetup without Twitter Badges?! That idea just came to me this morning.. so I had to print some out. ;)

After dessert, @mikeprasad, @rocknrollgeek, and dragonal went walking around Little Tokyo to get a snack. I know, it’s a little backwards. ;) We had weird eating habits that day.

After 5pm, we parted, dragonal and I went to the event at The Grove to meet up with friends and see the Christmas Tree Lighting show! ;)

Many thanks to Ed for setting up a farewell Tweetup for us! So sweet! We had an amazing dinner at Longhi’s and had the chance to meet Neenz and Noe! Thank you for coming. :) Lots of talks about the delicious food and social media, and of course, Twitter. ^_^

Waikiki Tweetup!

I was happy and sad all at once, knowing this was the last meal I’ll have in Hawaii with my friends on this trip. But that just makes me count down to the next time I’ll visit. <3 my Hawaii Twitter friends. I can’t wait to see you again soon!!

Honolulu Tweetup

Thank you Ryan for setting up my first Honolulu Tweetup! It was so much fun, great food, and great people! I love how people kept trickling in. :)

We had a two hour or so lunch at Nico’s at Pier 38. Great location! We talked about all sorts of things, from cameras, to the best snorkeling spots, to iphones and web development. Loved it!

The funniest part was when we were all asking each other our Twitter names. And DragonAl said, it’s Dragonal, but no one follows me. And every whipped out their iphone and said, “we’ll take care of that!” LOL

Here’s a short clip of the Tweetup. I took while Hawaii was Qikking us.
