Not sure if anyone notice. But I stopped organising gathering lately. The last gathering that I organised was for the Christmas celebration. (If I remember correctly) That is more than 1/2 year already.
Why did I stop organising gathering? Is it because I’m lazy to organise gathering? Or was I too busy?
Nope. I stop organising gathering because I was hurt by the words written by Daphne in the Ping.sg newsletter.
It’s time to rejoice, for the joyous festive season is here again! With the various and numerous celebrations with family and friends, let’s not forget our very own Ping.sg community’s official and not-so-official gatherings!
The official gathering was referring to the ping.sg T-shirt launch event. The not-so-official gathering is the christmas gathering that I was organising for the community.
I was so pissed by the statement. What does she means by “not-so-official”. Why is there a need to classify gathering in this manner? Both gathering is for the community.
I confronted Daphne and demand an explanation. Her explanation was that gathering organised by Ping.sg company is considered official gathering. Gathering organised by members themselves is considered not official. I had a huge argument with her over this classifications. I’m also doing my part for the community. Why is there a need to differentiate the two gathering so clearly? Is she trying to show that she is the official person to organise gathering?
The argument was so bad that she have to drag Uzyn in to help settle the whole issue. But the damage was already done.
I never bring this issue up on my blog because I don’t want the community to break into 2 camps, Ping.sg company and members. I kept quiet. But I slowly stop organising my “not-so-official” gathering.
But I guess it would be nice to let everyone knows what happen in the background. Just in case anyone wants to organise a “not-so-official” gathering.
