In the two and a half years since The Milelion began, it’s been heartening to see how the miles community in Singapore has grown. From the comments, emails, and occasional pair of soiled boxer shorts I get in the mail, it’s clear that (1) there’s a real passion for the hobby in Singapore, and (2) that I’m not the only one who holds up the queue by asking the cashier to break my Paywave transaction into $100 increments.
And now I think it’s time we start meeting.
I want to introduce the Milelion’s Monthly Miles Meetup (I wanted to call it the Milelion’s Monthly Macho Miles Meetup but was told this would alienate female readers. “What female readers?” I said. Prove me wrong ladies, prove me wrong)
Here’s the details of the first event:
Date: Friday 17 November 2017
Venue: TBD (bar in the Raffles Place area)
Time: 7.30pm till everyone gets bored
We’re planning to start small and intimate, so the first event will have 8 tickets only. Depending on response, future events might get scaled up, but I think this type of thing generally works best if it’s kept cozy. If the event sells out, a waitlist will open where you can leave your name in case someone cancels.
Just so we’re clear- there isn’t going to be like a presentation or anything. This is really a time for fellow miles hobbyists to gather and talk about anything under the sun. Trip planning, credit card strategies, award booking woes, hotel mattress runs, mileage runs, manufactured spending (yeah, right), the weather…anything at all (if you’re looking for a more formal seminar-style experience, stay tuned for something we’re hoping to hold in early February).
Look forward to meeting you guys and girls at one of these!
