Dear Tom,

Skype is a great idea too, I have a Skype account! Wink Ever advancing technologies do so much good in removing geographical boundaries between people and nations!

Dear Peter,

I will get in touch with Geoff and see if he's free to join us this Sat. Will let you know.

Best,
Samson

Hi All,

While  Skype is   great  for   compulsory   cross-world / time zone  business  meetings  it  would   surely  never  work  for  hobbies  like  SB  collecting

One needs  tea , food,  beer .... and the  personal interaction, which is  what  "lubricates"   sharing  hobbies

Just my  two  cents  worth

Cheers
Peter

Hi Peter

Yes, I agreed that meeting face to face is the best choice and cannot be replaced.

However, if that can't happen in reality, online meeting such as Skype will be the next best thing.

Regards.

Hi Peter,

This is a case of the well-fed preaching to the under nourished!

Pat,

There IS another collector in Bangkok. He has a nice collection assembled in Hong Kong in the 1960s.
I took Joey to meet him last time he was here, and more recently two other collectors. Unfortunately he no longer actively collects, so may not be too interested in regular meet-ups.

Can discuss further by PM.

Hi  all  HK  Forum members:

Samson  is  taking  great  initiative to arrange  a  local  HK  Yum-Cha  meeting

I am definitely  IN  for this  and  - if  later -  it  works  I will  try to  draw  in local  ICSBS members

Cheers
Peter
