Singapore PE Readers Meetup on July 27, 2014 (Plus My 30th Birthday Celebration!)! [RSVPs CLOSED]

Singapore PE Readers Meetup in June 2013, Group Shot

Singapore PE Readers Meetup in June 2013 last year! :)

Hi everyone! :) While we’re in the middle of the Affirmation Challenge, I’d like to announce our upcoming Singapore PE readers meetup!

Every year I have at least one PE readers meetup in Singapore (since that’s where I reside), usually in the month of June, in conjunction with my birthday that’s on June 25. To date, we’ve had three meetups! Since I was busy getting married in May and then subsequently with honeymoon and house-moving in June and July (even today), I haven’t been able to arrange a PE readers meetup for this year!

Well, I’m excited to announce our FOURTH Singapore PE readers meetup! :D This meetup will be a belated celebration of my birthday, as well as a farewell for one of our long-time PE reader, Wanxuan (she is the lovely lady in a grey long dress in the picture above!), who is moving to China next month to be a language teacher!

ALL of you (in Singapore) are invited, whether you’re a long-time reader or a new reader at PE!

Meetup Details (CONFIRMED)

  • Venue:
    • 7 Sensations, a vegetarian restaurant that I’ve heard much about, but have yet to try the food!! I’ve visited the place twice this week to size up the place for our meetup, and I think it’ll be a perfect cosy spot for us. I look forward to checking it out with all of you during this meetup! :D
    • Check out their website and menu at 7 Sensations.
  • Address:
    • 279 Jalan Besar Singapore 208943. (Check out the location on Google Maps.) It’s about 10 minutes walk from Farrer Park MRT; after getting off the MRT, you have to cut through City Square Mall first, after which it’s about seven minutes by foot.
    • Contact for restaurant (if you can’t find the place on that day): 6298 8198
    • If you’ve been to 7 Sensations before, they are no longer at Millenia Walk, but have shifted to Jalan Besar (the address indicated above). So don’t go to the wrong place!
  • Date:
    • 27 July / Sunday, 6:30pm (dinner). Come between 6:15 to 6:30pm to settle down and place your dinner order!
    • Please don’t be late as I tend to wait for everyone to arrive first before doing introduction/ice breaking, so that we can know each other together. The problem is that those who arrive on time end up waiting, but if we start the introductions on time you’ll wind up missing others’ self-introductions… so it’s really a lose-lose scenario when someone is late! I should be there at 6:15pm (if not earlier)! Seats are reserved for us from 6pm onwards.
  • Duration: Based on past meetups, it’ll likely span from two-and-a-half to three hours long. Think about it as a meetup with good friends, even though many of us have never met before! ;)

What are we going to do during the meetup? Well, get to know each other, chit chat, and discuss conscious growth topics! :D There’ll be no motivational ra-ra — don’t worry, whatever you don’t see it at PE, it doesn’t happen in real life — no pitches, no selling of anything, and no forcing of anyone to do anything they don’t like/want. Just a group of like-minded, growth oriented individuals (YOU!!!!) getting together to know each other. Based on past meetups, many new friendships have been forged, and it tingles me each time I see how so many awesome people have gotten to know each other thanks to PE. :)

If you’re curious, here are the photos of past meetups in Singapore (three so far!). Check out everyone (originally strangers, now friends!) chatting and having fun! ;)


Please RSVP now by posting a comment with:

  1. Your name
  2. Name of any friends/family to bring along — You are welcome to bring your friends/family along, even if they don’t read PE (yet)! After all, it’s all about meeting like-minded people and making new friends. You’re welcome to the more, the merrier!

Agenda for the meetup will be getting to know each other (and giving me the opportunity to know you better!), making new friends, and having conscious discussions about life and personal growth. :) It doesn’t get any better than this!

As seats are limited, please only RSVP if you’re serious about coming. I’ve had past meetups where the people RSVP but don’t turn up (without any explanation), and frankly speaking, it is not cool! :( Do RSVP only if you are sincere about coming, because to do so otherwise will only make event planning difficult (for me) and also potentially rob someone else (who truly wants to come) of a spot.

  • Sharon

    Hi Celes, I’m only returning from my travel on the 27th and would like to RSVP for that day.

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Sharon, thanks for RSVP and I sincerely hope that most people can make it on Sunday (27) so that we can set it on that day!! Hope you enjoy your travels in the meantime! :D

  • Sam Chong

    Hi Celeste, THAT AMAZING and WONDERFUL. I am flexible on both dates/days and look forward to seeing you then =))

    • Celestine Chua

      Hey Samuel, this is awesome and I look forward to seeing you soon!! :D

      • Sam Chong

        Hi Celeste, 2 of my friends would be joining in as well
        - Shin
        - Vernetta

        • Celestine Chua

          Hi Sam, that’s terrific — will register their names too! :)

          • Sam Chong

            HI Celeste, 3 more people from my side coming along (Final) =P
            - Julia
            - Lyon
            - Kevin

            • Celestine Chua

              Hi Sam, AWESOME!! I’d added them to the RSVPs — and seems like we’re going to have an amazing meetup!!! I think I need to book the entire restaurant for Sunday evening actually… will be calling them later to reserve the seats.

  • Corrine

    Hi Celes, I’d like to join the dinner, I’m available on both dates.

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Corrine, thanks so much for RSVPing!! Okay, please stay tuned for the update on Thursday where I’ll announce the final date (whether it’s Sat or Sun). Look forward to seeing you soon!! :D

  • Madalina S

    It’s that time of the year again when I wish I lived in Singapore, haha. I really hope to have the chance to meet you once in person, Celes. :)

    For all of those who will attend, have fun and enjoy the experience!

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Lina, it’s a real pity that you can’t join us due to obvious geography differences. If I recall right, you live in the U.K.? Which part do you live in?

      • Madalina S

        I live in Romania actually. :)

        • Celestine Chua

          Ah okay! I know Jade is in U.K., so I must have mixed that up with your locality. We have another PE reader (who used to be active in the challenges) who lives in Romania too; perhaps we have more Romania readers who will step out and participate more actively next time, and who knows? At some point perhaps all of you can connect offline. :) (This happened for our Australian readers Charles and Glenn actually!)

  • Roxanne

    Hey Celes! (:
    So so glad to have this wonderful PE meet up cum farewell dinner for Wanxuan!
    Thanks a lot for creating one and taking the trouble to find a suitable venue!
    I am good with both dates. I really hope that most can make it on Sunday so that Sharon can make it!!
    See you Celes and amazing people!! =)

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Roxanne, that’s awesome that you can make it both days, and look forward to seeing you soon! :D

      PS: Haven’t received Wanxuan’s RSVP yet, so hopefully she can do so when she gets the chance to!

  • Farnam

    Hi Celes, I am looking forward to attend your further meetups one day, I wish I could make this one happen, but I live in Iran and I have a lot to do, so I can’t come over.
    Wish you and other attendees the best moments..

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Farnam, this is a real pity, and it definitely wouldn’t be worth you flying over just to attend a PE meetup! (Plane tickets aren’t cheap by any means, and it’s not like you live in Malaysia which is SG’s neighboring country. I appreciate your interest and will feel your presence in spirit during the meetup itself. :)

      Hey, who knows, perhaps I’ll be in Iran one day soon, and I can arrange for a meetup there then? :)

      • Farnam

        Wow thank you so much. I hope so. I would love to meet you in person. It is my pleasure to talk to you, you are my inspiration.

  • Ken Soh

    Hi Maomao, please count me in! =) Either dates are great for me <3

  • Drew Huang

    1) Drew Huang
    2) 27 July

    Thanks thanks!

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Drew, thanks for RSVPing, and hopefully we can have our meetup on 27 July then so you (and Sharon, another reader who has RSVPed below) can come! :D

  • Ngee Key

    It’s been my honor to attend your PE Readers Meetup group. Thanks Celes for the invitation again, I’m fine with both dates as well. We have a lot to catch up :)

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Ngee Key, thanks so much for RSVPing and great to know that both dates are good for you!! :D Look forward to meeting up and catching up in person soon! :)

  • Samuel Lim

    Hi Celes, I am joining and and am free on both dates. I’m bringing me, myself and I along. :)

    • Celestine Chua

      So awesome, Samuel! Look forward to seeing you in person soon, especially after all your awesome sharing in the affirmation challenge. :) Oh and, the restaurant we go to for the meetups is always healthy, and most of the people who attend the meetups usually have an interest in healthy living too, so that will definitely be in line with your personal healthy eating goals! :D

  • Kay

    Hi Celes, I’m new on PE but please count me in :-) I would love to join and I’m available on both dates. I’m so excited and looking forward:)

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Kay, so awesome!!!! :D Thanks a lot for RSVPing, and look forward to seeing you real soon then!

  • Yaleryn

    Hello Celes!

    I would love to join this year’s meetup and definitely excited to celebrate your belated birthday as well ((:

    1. Yaleryn
    2. 26 & 27 July

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Yaleryn, so excited that we’ll be able to meet again, especially after our brief encounter after the Spark Summit!! :D Awesome to know that both dates work for you, and stay tuned later in the week for the confirmation of the meetup date!! :D

      • Yaleryn

        Celes, here are some other foodie options for you to select from! (:

        - Whole Earth (Peranakan & Thai cuisine)

        - Real food

        Can’t wait to see you & the rest as well :D

        • Celestine Chua

          Hey Yaleryn! :D Thanks so much for your suggestions! Whole Earth I’ve been to before, but I’m not sure if it may be a bit on the costly side for some participants, but the good thing is it may provide a more conducive environment since it’s quite enclosed. Let me weigh them in as one of the options too, along with 7 Sensations.

          For Real Food, actually we used to have all PE meetups there but the last time we had our third meetup their service was not welcoming (as mentioned in the post above), so I’ve not patronized their service ever since then.

  • Lulu Ong

    Hi Celes, I’ll like to join! Can only make it on 27 July. Hope it’s the more popular date and I look forward to meeting fellow readers!

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Lulu, that’s awesome!! Okay, at the moment it does seem like July 27 is the more popular date, so it may well be the meetup date. Stay tuned for the update at the blog on Thursday! :D

      • Joanne Teo

        Hi Celestine, I am Lulu’s cousin. I am new to PE and would like to join the meetup on 27 Jul. :)

        • Celestine Chua

          Hi Joanne, beautiful!! :D Welcome to PE, and do sign up for the free newsletter if you haven’t!! Make yourself feel at home here!! :D

          I’ve added you to the RSVP for July 27 — stay tuned for the blog update on Thursday on confirmation for the meetup date/location! :D

  • Wanxuan wang

    Hi Celes,

    Wanxuan here, do count me in :) Grateful that you’re organising one before my departure, I can make it just in time ;) look forward to a sensational meetup with fellow PE readers and you ;) I prefer 27th

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Wanxuan, lovely! :D Looks like it’ll have to be 27th then; so far everyone can either make it on 27th or both days. I’ll update the post! :D

      PS: I tried checking Glow Deli a month ago, but seems like their Facebook page is no longer up? So I couldn’t check if they are still around or shut down!

      • Wanxuan wang

        Hi Celes,

        Sure will check for updates here then :) Glow Deli’s facebook page is, their last update was July 18th on fb..I just love their dehydrated crackers and dragonfruit pomelo salad.. And they keep innovating their menu xD going to try their mango coconut chia pudding next perhaps :p totally recommend the place


        • Celestine Chua

          Hi Wanxuan, I just gave them a call and sadly they don’t open on Sunday!!! That’s a pity, so I guess Glow Deli (seems like they call themselves After Glow?) is out for the meetup. Another member has suggested another spot to me, so I’ll check out first (perhaps other spots too) then decide. If you can think of any other veggie spots that can comfortably accommodate a 20-24 pax (and not very busy crowds??), feel free to let me know here!

  • Wen

    Hi Celes, I can only make it for after dinner drinks on Sunday. Let me know what the after plan is after dinner?

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Wen! That’s a pity! Not sure if there’ll be an after dinner drinks, it’s usually a play-by-ear thing (even if there will be one I may not be able to join in).

  • Ruth

    Hi Celes, I’ll be there :)

    • Celestine Chua

      Look forward to seeing you Ruth! :D

  • Dexin Wang

    Hi Celes! Been following your website for about 1 years now… Really excited to hear about this meet up! Do count me in if you still have a spot! :)

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Dexin, superb!!! :D Thanks for signing up, and yes, of course there is still a spot (there will always be spots for anyone interested!!). Have added you to the attendees list; check back later in the week on the confirmed venue/time okay! :D

  • Danny Koh

    Hi Celest, count me in too~~~ I would love to in the celebration :)

    • Celestine Chua

      Terrific, Danny!! I’ve included you in the RSVP too! :D

  • Ken Soh

    Hi Celes, please count me in! =)

    • Celestine Chua

      Awesome Ken, look forward to having you at the meetup! =D

  • Chloe Sim

    Hihi Celes, pls count me in too :) Thanks~

    Name: Chloe
    Name of friend: Alvin

    • Celestine Chua

      Hi Chloe, that’s awesome! I love all the sharing you’ve been doing for the affirmation challenge too! =D Will register you and Alvin for the meetup, stay posted on Thursday for final meetup details (venue, time etc.)!

      • Chloe Sim
