Hi all

I have arrived at Beverly Wilshire Hotel in LA 2 days ago and will be reporting and sending some photos of the Convention.

Here are some photos to start with.

Photo 1-3: The venue for the Convention, Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
Photo 4: My hotel room. I think all the members who checked in earlier enjoyed a free room upgrade.
Photo 5: Lunch with fellow forum members, Jo & David Earp. From left to right: Foo Jong Kan from Singapore, me, Jo Earp and David Earp.
Photo 6: Visit to Clare Chu's residence. From left to right: Clare, me and Michael Chu.
Photo 7: The Singapore contingent, the biggest so far for the Convention. Dinner at the Cut Restaurant. From left to right: Me, Dominic Yeo, Johnson Tan, Foo Jong Kan.

More photos will be posted when they are available.

Stay tuned....


Richard reporting from L.A.

P.S. Sorry, the photo I took with you did not turn out well, will post another one when available.

It's a great convention.  So very happy to meet Richard Baey  Great to see a lot of snuff bottle friends that I only see once a year and make new friends. I always learn so much at the conventions and the bottles are wonderful.  Thanks to Richard for starting this post.  Wish all collectors could be here this week in LA.
