Remember Carousell? The last time I wrote about them was when I attended the Pop-up Market, and it was so fun! You can read about it here as well.

To refresh your memory, Carousell is a buying & selling app that lets you sell in a click. They are growing in Malaysia and previously held a small meet-up in KL. This time, Carousellers in JB were thrilled to know that the Carousell team was going to pay us a visit in Johor Bahru!
The venue was Chef's Table, a classy yet homely restaurant set along Jalan Serampang amidst a row of bridal houses. It's not hard to miss and once you step inside, you'll be captivated by the decor. Reshma did a good job of choosing the venue and decorating it!
The main purpose of the meetup was to speak with users and get some feedback and suggestions from them. It's just a casual meetup where everyone can make friends and of course, eat! The meal was quite lavish and filling, I would say. Thank you, Team Carousell!
For starters, we had focaccia bread dipped in olive oil & vinaigrette. I've loved this Italian way of cleansing the palatte the most!
Summer salad drizzled with light vinaigrette, paired with fresh celery and cherry tomatoes.
Cream of chicken soup. It's so thick and creamy yet very flavourful!
Roasted chicken, which we filled our tummies on.
A vegetarian dish that's healthy and fresh.
A simple aglio olio, but I find this a tad too oily for my liking.
And lastly, seabass. This is also a must-try, cos the orange sauce is well-paired with the fish!
Our favourite that night would definitely be the desserts. Every cake is so dainty and fits in your mouth in one bite. Each cake tastes equally delicious!
Anyway, some users did not turn up that night for some reason so there were some food leftover. So the Carousell team donated the leftover (but untouched) food to an orphanage nearby, thanks to my dad's suggestion. It feels really good to do a good deed! Instead of being disheartened by the turn out, the team was very optimistic about it and was also enthusiastic about doing chrity. Really impressed by how generous the people in the Carousell team are :)
Small crowd, but it was a close-knit event which everyone enjoyed. After all, isn't that what a meetup is supposed to be about? :)
Lucas and Reshma giving a quick speech. So cute to see Lucas speak cos he's usually quiet XD
Part of Team Carousell - Reshma, Michelle, Lucas. Even though I'm no longer working with the team, it still feels great to meet up with these guys. Thanks for making the meetup happen! :)
Goodie bags and props to play with! Got another Muji notebook which I looooveee lol

Small turn up, but a great event nevertheless. We all learnt a thing or two from the team, gave our feedback and left with a happy tummy and new-found friends. :)
