Since our last makan gathering with our foodie friends at中峇鲁in August,,Derrick我没有任何关于下一次马肯聚会的具体计划。这个想法是在我们在上流社会,抵押贷款证券化.Kennie谁是公司的执行董事？told us that they are very opened to doing events.So we thought,为什么不在上流社会尝试一下呢？有点不同于我们的普通小贩马肯。勇敢的我决定为每个人打开它！!
事情发生了。On 3 November 2012,Saturday night!!
计划从10月1日开始，当我们与肯尼会面讨论马肯聚会的大纲时。我们的目标是让每个人以最低的成本尝试尽可能多的菜肴。我们不确定反应会怎么样，so we told Kennie we would have at least 30 guests.
一周之内，我们收到了肯尼的建议，其中包括汤，a main,4道品尝菜肴和甜点。这真是个好买卖。Thanks to the support from our friends,马可酒店公关和读者，我们的客人名单很快就超过了30人。
When numbers are increasing,we wanted to make the dinner more worth it.所以我们联系了Faith，感谢她，我们设法得到了一些赞助。我们还靠近了河口餐厅和海滩路的Parkroyal，他们很乐意赞助餐券。
然后，we visited High Society to check out the venue,and finalize on the dishes.虽然我们不能控制菜肴的质量和味道，but we tried our best to make sure that every other things was discussed and went through smoothly.Because we reached more than 60 participants,kind Kennie decided to give us 2 more tasting dishes in each table of 6.
However,the hardest in our planning was svwin备用eating arrangement because there are requests for A to sit with B,or C don't want to sit with D etc.We also wanted to have a good mix of people in each table.There was also constant changes in the number of attendees.At one point,we were very afraid that the numbers will drop below 60 because that means we cannot get extra 2 tasting dishes for everyone!!
So the big day finally arrived.当时正在下雨，马米埃穆奥开车送我们去上流社会时发生了严重的交通堵塞。最后，我只在晚上7点到达，which was one hour later than our meeting time and had a huge rush packing the goodie bag.
因为我们找不到任何包装好东西的袋子，Derrick and I decided to fork out money from our own pocket to buy paper bags.每个纸袋1美元！But half the paper bag was torn and some kaya bottles broke (very sorry!).The staff had to help us clean up the mess immediately.
但这并不是最糟糕的。I placed an envelope on each table,collecting the dining fee for that night.猜猜看，我把自己桌上的信封放错地方了。那帮人在晚饭后帮我到处找信封，但是，找不到。所以最后，Derrick and I shared the dining costs of my table.
It was truly an experience and indeed a learning journey for both of us.通过头脑风暴，规划，to execution,every mistake we make is a learning journey.
我们从你们中一些人那里听说了食品质量的问题。虽然我们不能控制它，我们希望你晚餐还愉快。I am still thankful to High Society for hosting all of us on a Saturday evening,尤其是亨利，Kennie沙哈林和扎姆。感谢您帮助我们使这一活动成为可能，以任何方式支持我们。
顺便说一句，这次聚会我们什么也赚不到。我们也要为自己的份额买单。但正如我所提到的，the ultimate aim for this makan gathering was for everyone to meet new friends.我们希望公司和笑声能弥补一切。
当晚的亮点是Instagram食品竞赛，在该竞赛中，美食家可以使用他们的照相手机拍摄猪肉指关节的照片。获胜者将在海滩路的Parkroyal酒店获得免费的2人自助晚餐券。Thank you so much Karen and the hotel management for sponsoring.
The criteria was,不允许使用DSLR或照相机。只有照相手机。上面的照片是用我的数码单反拍的（我没有参加）。just to let you have a look at the pork knuckle that day.具有挑战性的，不是吗？?
Everyone who participated included #HSmakan and here are some of the photos.
获胜者是杰克逊！祝贺杰克逊！谢谢您PARKROYAL on Beach Road!!
When the foodies first registered their name,they were each given an ice cream stick to write their name for the lucky draw.Shaharin,the restaurant manager,帮助我们选出3位幸运的获奖者。这两位先生每人赢得了一张50美元的餐馆代金券，while the lucky lady won a $100 Mouth Restaurant voucher.恭喜你，谢谢你！!

Of course,没有每个人的支持，一切都是不可能的。谢谢。非常感谢。We sincerely hope you guys had fun meeting new friends.Your laughter was the best gifts we had that night.
