    TM presents Everyone Connects with Urbanscapes 2011 + Giveaway!

    If you are living in KL and don’t know what Urbanscapes is, WHERE HAVE YOU BEENN?

    #twtclub at Zeta Bar

    Woot! First night out clubbing for 2010 and it was with my tweeple :D Organized by @spinzer & @meiyingt (above) #twtclub was the first tweetup for 2010. The venue was Zeta Bar, KL Hilton where we paid RM40 each to open a bottle of Black Label & Chivas + mixers.

Parking at KL Hilton is RM8.00 flat rate if you are a patron at any of their restaurants/club/function but…
