It has been 3 years since the death of the Parkroyal Scrabble Corner and it is about time that we wake up to reality. We really need a decent clubhouse.

For all you people out there, if you know of any suitable venue that can host a scrabble get-together, (minimum requirement being tables and chairs big enough), please email . I will look into the suitability of the venue. It's okay if people have to pay for use of the space as long as the fee is reasonable.

One place that I have approached is the newly renovated KL Memorial Library. If we can get a scrabble corner there, players may have to pay a annual subscription fee of RM40 for an adult for RM20 for a student. So you get a scrabble corner and library membership for the price of one.

For more uptown people, the La Bodega Lounge on the 2nd floor in Bangsar is a pretty spiffy place but to patronize with snacks & drinks etc may be a bit expensive (since it is Bangsar) and parking may be a hassle. I hope to negotiate a settlement there.

So please, do keep a lookout for some good place to host Scrabble corners

Kar Mun here. Would you all consider having a Scrabble meeting place at San Francisco Coffee at Bangsar Telawi 3? It is in the street parallel to La Bodega.

The place is relatively quiet during weekday nights and weekend afternoons. I have asked my colleague, the operational manager, and she is alright with Scrabblers having games there, provided drinks are purchased by each player. She will allow us at all times except Friday and Saturday nights, understandably coz it is busier during those hours.

Alternatively, weekday nights are also ok at San Francisco Coffee at Summit Subang and 1-Utama.

Please let me know what you guys think, and if ok, I will get formal approval from the management.

Cheers! - Kar Mun
p/s: There's a small group who meets at Little Havana, at Lorong Sahabat, off Changkat Bukit Bintang
