Cape Town PE Readers Meetup on Sun, Apr 21!! [Signs Up Closed]

Cape Town - Chapman's Peak

At Chapman’s Peak in Cape Peninsula, Cape Town :)

Update April 19: Thanks for the speedy replies everyone — The meetup has been confirmed! :) Please read below for details! For those who did tentative RSVPs or who have not RSVPed, please kindly confirm your attendance via the comments section to reserve your seat. The meetup is 100% free and only for those who have RSVPed. Thanks! :)

Hi guys!! :) After being in Johannesburg for nearly three weeks, I’m now at Cape Town, and totally loving this city!! :) (Connect with me on my Facebook Page to be looped into my personal and travel updates!)

I’m actually returning to Singapore in just a few days’ time, but would love to meet up with those of you who are in Cape at the moment. I don’t know how many Cape readers I have actually which was why I didn’t post a Cape meetup post initially, but having received ad-hoc requests from readers in Cape Town in the past few days, I thought I should just arrange for one anyway and see how it goes! :)

Here are the final plans for the meetup!

Please confirm your attendance by posting a comment in the comments section! I would REALLY love to meet as many of you as possible before I go! For those of you who gave tentative RSVPs, please kindly confirm by today (Friday) on whether you can turn up or not, as I need to update the reservation count with the restaurant. Thank you! :)

As usual with all meetups, you are more than welcome to bring along friends and family members. The more, the merrier! :D Hope to see you guys soon!! :D

Lovely gift note from Barbara. She gave me a bar of healing clay, meant to be used as
a soap and said to have healing properties. Thank you so much Barbara!! :))

I really enjoyed myself when I was in Cape Town and look forward to be back in the near future. :) Godspeed everyone and in the meantime, let’s be our best selves and live our best lives! :)


  • Lisa

    Hi – looking forward to this
    Tentatively joining based on the amount of readers :clap:

    • Celes

      Hey Lisa! Will you be able to confirm if you can attend? It will be hard to arrange for a meetup based on tentative RSVPs (which are based on other tentative RSVPs), so if you can confirm if you can attend or not as soon as possible, that would be very helpful! Thank you! :)

  • blaine thomas

    Hi Celeste. Would love to be apart of this. Blaine x

    • Celes

      Awesome! Look forward to having you Blaine! :)

  • Julie

    Hi Celes

    I sent you an email with more detail about students meeting up with you in CT, not sure if you received it? I sent it to your Business email address.

    • Celes

      Hey Julie, I did get it but haven’t been able to respond or read in detail as I have not been having internet access until today. Unfortunately I won’t be able to make it for your invite as it does not fit with my agenda and schedule in Cape Town for this visit, but hope you will be able to attend the meetup!

  • Liza

    I am definitely a Cape town reader. I’m not sure that I can make it on Sunday, will try. I hope you enjoy your stay in the Mother City! I just LOVE your website. Great work.

    • Celes

      Hey Liza, I do hope you can make it!! When can you confirm if you will be able to join the meetup? I would need to plan for the location and make reservations as well based on the registrant count.

  • Barbara Chambers

    Hi Celeste!
    Thanks so muchYou can definately count me in plus maybe a friend Pixie(TBC), she will confirm with me tomorrow. I am so glad you are enjoying Cape Town. I hope you are getting a chance to see the mountain from either Robben Island or Blaauwberg.
    Have a great evening!

    • Celes

      Hey Barbara, yes I will be going to Robben Island tomorrow! :D I definitely hope Pixie can join; let me know when she confirms with you! :D I’ll confirm on the venue for the meetup shortly tomorrow evening.

    When are you coming to Perth, Western Australia. It would be great to catch up and say hello.

I had a great time during the dinner and I certainly hope the rest of you did too. Barbara, I’ll put your healing clay to good use for sure. Look forward to seeing you guys again when I return to Cape Town! :)

  • Martha Hattingh

    I only opened this mail today I therefore sadly missed the opportunity.

    • Celes

      That’s a pity Martha; I did try to announce about the meetup as early as I could. Perhaps next time! :)
