I join in some social networkings and collect many new friends from there. One of my favorite site is Plurk. In Plurk, we know or identify someone's character through their responses or their comments. Unlike other social networking which enables narcissism to be exposed, Plurk only allows its users to use one picture as picture profile.
To some extent, Plurkers (plurk users) will tend to know deeper their loyal plurker mates after having some interactions. And therefore, online mode will never be enough to fulfill such demand. And Plurkers gathering was initiated (in Indonesia we call it Kopi Darat, abbreviated to KOPDAR) as an event to know our online plurker mates and to diminish our curiosity over our online mates . The term "Kopi Darat" literally means Coffe on the Land. And I made my own term which Coffelander for those who attend this kind of gathering. So from now on, I will use "Coffeelander".
Me, myself, have attended many Kopi Darats start from the small one to the big one. Indeed, I found some true friends from my Kopi Darat activity. I realize that some people are totally different in reality compare to their image when they are online. Kopi darat has brought a lot stories, some couples have been produced from this gathering activity. JYaaaahhh mmmm no need to mention who they are, right? :p
If usually Kopi Darat is carried out at the restaurant or food court, now the trend changes. Kopi Darat is not only conducted in a restaurant anymore but it is conducted in many ways such as social activity, travelling and dating (especially for those who feel matched after series of meetings), wakakakak.
I uploaded pics of some Kopi Darat events that I attended. Wish the pictures encourage others plurkers to invite me for other kopi darat, (self promotion: mode ON) :p
