On behalf of Team Matick, I would like to start by apologizing for the lack of content and engagement on our Instagram page for the past couple of months. But rest assured, because by any means we were not basking ourselves in stagnancy during these few months, but instead we were tirelessly working on a new joint venture with our new partners at Front Room.
As of today, I feel very elated to announce that The Matick Blog has found a new home at the Front Room for a series of GTG events in the near future.
So what exactly does this mean for us and for you? For starters, this joint venture represents a step into a new direction for us at The Matick Blog. By doing so, we are now able to use this as a compelling platform to showcase the things and aspects we care and love about watches, the community and world that surrounds it in general. It allows us to unite watch enthusiasts from all walks of life within an intimate space here at the Front Room, to share and mutually cultivate that genuine love and passion for everything that revolves around the world of watch collecting and appreciation. Ultimately, this would also allow us to expand our horizons and build on a stronger sense of what we stand for in the relatively closed-off world of watches here in Malaysia.
After our first two GTGs last year, which we received overwhelmingly positive response from our attendees, we knew that we had to follow up with something special. At this juncture, I think we’ve done just that and we could not be any happier to be able to share this joyous occasion with you.
The Front Room is co-owned by Pete and Jo, it can be described as a cozy little space and café, tucked away in the warm neighbourhood of Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur. It is also a business purely founded on and fuelled by passion, which is in many ways, homogenous to what we hold dear to our hearts here at The Matick Blog when it comes to watches and the world that revolves around it.
F.Y.I, like many of us, Pete – the owner of the Front Room, is also a chronic watch geek.
So on the 27th May 2018, please do come on by for drinks, watch talk, and an all-around good time with us at The Matick Blog and fellow watch enthusiasts.
Also joining us as guest speaker is Praneeth Rajsingh, a co-founder of MING. He’ll spend some time sharing some of their watches and answering any questions you have about the brand. If you are a fan of the brand, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
Festivities will run from 6.00pm to 8.30pm, and the venue will be located at the Front Room in Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur. For all details and to RSVP, please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us at @thematick.blog on Instagram. Once your seat has been confirmed, an official invitation containing all the relevant details will then be sent to you.
The setting and dress code of the event will be casual with some specialty finger food specially prepared by Chef Daniel Yap, a young chef who earned his chops at the 2-Michelin Star Piccolo Lago in Italy and later founded the popular Pop Up Dining Kuala Lumpur, to specifically pair with Brooklyn craft beers sponsored by Carlsberg. Lastly and most importantly, feel free to bring some of your own watches…
Since seat availability is extremely limited, we kindly ask that you RSVP as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you!
For Team Matick,
