General Meeting for this Saturday, May 22, 2010

Konnichiwa, Minna-san. This is Seishi here with some long-absent updates. Life had been very busy for me including work as well as being involved with planning for the booth the org is going to have for the CCC event this May 29th.

Anyway, I am here to announce a general meeting of available members this Saturday, May 22. Agenda will be appointment of new officers as well as discussion of possible activities for the organization. Please confirm either through YM, here or in for your attendance. Unfortunately, I have recently lost my cellular phone so none of you can contact me through that venue. Please pass along the message to the necessary parties.

Venue for our meeting will be at Ayala Terraces. Assembly time will be 2-3 pm, outside Seattle's Best where the CIO-AMAGE first had a meeting last year.

Aside from that, we have a few new memberships added to the CIO-AMAGE. Here are their names and their Yahoo messenger accounts:

niels virgil batucan - niels_00
gazelle - gazelle_bunsocan05
Steve Fox -poyeker_galindo

Minutes - March 7, 2010 Meeting

Konnichiwa, Minna-san. These are the minutes of last Saturday's meeting.

CCC Summer Event Booth

Person(s) in charge: Mysterious Hand and Company


Fortune sticks (Kerty)
T-shirt selling (Syaoran and co.)
Pins (suggested by ryke_moymoy)

Mysterious_hand, coordinate with your committee members and update us regularly on the movement of the plans.

P-chan's Sushi Cooking Event/Gem's Fine Dining Event

Suggestions have been made to make these two events separate which is quite possible considering we'll be putting in money for the events. It has been agreed, however, that one or perhaps two of these events would be the culminating event for Gem's Nihonggo lessons. Concerns have not been addressed, however, including the venue of P-chan's cooking event and who would teach the attendees how to do sushi cooking.

* Proposed trip to Bouncing Ball, an animation company based in Cebu Business Park.
* CCC event.
* One more very important matter that I will not disclose online.

So who can come, confirm here please. The last meeting was cancelled because so few confirmed that they will be attending. We need people to confirm either thru here, SMS or YM so the same misinterpretation will not happen again.

CIO-AMAGE Christmas Party 2009

Hello, everyone. It's the time of year once again where we gather for the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. Christmas is just a few days away, and so is our organization's Christmas party. Our first ever Christmas party will be held on December 23, 2009 lunch time at Family Park, Talamban, Cebu City.

Some of the members have volunteered to bring food for the party, and if anyone wants to do so, that would be appreciated. If you can't, that's no problem. You can still come to the party. We also have funds earned from the Otaku Fest booth we maintained, so we all can have an unforgettable first Christmas party for CIO-AMAGE.

To those that want to join, drop me an offline message on or before December 21 by:
* Dropping me an offline or online message at my YM seishi17.
* Listing yourself at our official thread in istorya if you have an account there. The link is here.
* Emailing me if you think that's convenient. My email address is mayapching -at-

There will also be an exchanging gift portion during the party. Participation is not compulsory of course. Please indicate in your message if you want to join the exchanging gift portion, because I need to make a list so that I can prepare the numbers for the gifts. We will mark each gift with a number and each participant will get a number from the box to determine which gift he receives. I would need to know how many will participate so I can make the exact number of rolled paper for that.

The gift does not have to be expensive. It's the thought that counts.

Cosplaying is also welcome during the party.
