    haha now like everyone making thank you speech so i shall give mine also,

    i want to thank everyone who went to the event and interacted with us in one way or another, think i really learn a lot from the event and gained a lot of experience from the pros around me. Big thanks to the sponsors and mr yang at inkstation for offering us the photo paper with such flexibility and low cost.

    Of cos we cannot miss out sulhan and his wife for the delicious food and drinks! They were truly an integral part of the welfare of our volunteers haha

    And i share similar sentiments with ctrl-delnoalt in that the ushers/promoters (you know who you are) were some of the greatest around! Most of them were ladies and they were in the sun whole day to help us get people to take photos, kudos to them! Without them we would not have achieved such great results!

    And not to miss out as well our impressive male promoters like Razin!! Thank you for being our unpaid model on so many occasions! hahaha

    Then still have many people to thank at the printing side, firstly yqt the main guy for his invaluable pointers and swift decisions, he really helped to propel us forward through the event, and not to mention many a times he would sacrifice his welfare for the rest of the volunteers, kudos!

    Then poohbear for also coordinating the event and doin many of the heavy duty labour and his wife for collecting food orders from us and to cater to our many last minute food orders! (quickly runs away ).

    Wai for his technical expertise and equipment contribution like his attention grabbing apple lcd and his wireless setup which impressed many tourists who enquired about how we transferred the images

    Of course we cannot forget our "mother", Eikin!! for seeing the project from birth till closure and being an integral part for organising the event, obtaining the permits and many more.. without him the event wld not be wat it is now

    And I have so many other people to thank as well but too much to type liao, in short: a fabulous job done to all the volunteers who helped out in one way or another in the event.

    A new chapter in Singapore history

    I'm very glad to meet all of you & hope we can meet again. Lastly, I apologize for not able to show up every weekend.

    Too bad we did not able to gather all of our gears for a shot or two.

    Looks like I'm late with my thank you post here. Sorry guys/gals need to settle the accountant issue with Salvation Army. We're still trying to get it done and I'll give you all a final fig. once we have counted the donations from weekends 2 and 3.

    I guess those that we need to thank have already been thanked but there's some which we may have left out and I think we need to thank them here:

    Fullerton ( The Management of the Merlion Park ):
    They waived the rental for us to use the Merlion Park ( yes, they collect rent from others as they are maintaining the place ) and only charge us $50/- per day for the electricity usage instate of the usual $50/- per power point per day ( we were using 3 power points ).


    Hotspots:
    Paid for the power usage for weekend 1.

    Sjourn:
    Paid for the power usage for weekend 2 and the purchase of a printer when we were short of printers.

    Simon ( club snap Admin ):
    For making this a sticky thread and "closing one eye" when we OT a little too much here.

    Rivervale CC:
    For the use of the tables and chairs for 3 weeks.

    Del_CtrnoAlt:
    For keeping our stuff in his van during the weekdays since weekend 1.

    STB:
    For giving us the go ahead on short notice ( they're now asking us if we want to do this on a perm basis!!! ).

    Razor:
    For the "PhotoAid" pin buttons. I understand that it cost $3/- per piece.

    There are many more whom, at this point in time I could not remember but we would like to thank you all. All in all, all of us have done something to help and I could not even start to keep track of who buy what or who did what. There were just too many of you!!!

    A big thank you to all, every single one of you, who have help keep this donation drive going. This donation drive would not have gone so smoothly had it not been for everyone of you who have given your time, effort and commitment to a cause which at the start, even the core group did not know how it is going to turn out.

    Yanzai, have you found your handphone?

    All who were at the Merlion on weekend 3 Sunday, please check your stuff/bags and see if Yanzai have dropped his handphone into your bags.

    Default Thank you too

    Ai....so many thank you already....

    So I will keep my real short....every individual who were there on hand to help made it real.


    3 weekends are short compared to the amount of friends we made who came together with the same determination and passion.

    No doubt last night was the best night when we accomplished our mission and above our expectation, however I will miss the comradeship that we shared for this special event, sad to say; all good things must come to an end.

    I too learnt alot, and best of all it had been an honour to serve with the rest of you.
    I lup SG, but SG don't love me...
