The closest MRT station is Eunos and then bus 155 (Bus 155 from Eunos is in front of Eunos MRT. Don't cross the road) or Kembangan and then a 1 to 1.5 km walk along the canal to East Coast Road.

Buses that stop almost in front are 10, 12, 14, 32, 40, 155.  Coming from town, get ready to get off after you see the Margarita's restaurant (on the right).  The bus stop is at the Nafa Kindergarten. The place is right across the road (i.e opposite Nafa kindergarten).  MOST RECOMMENDED.

A short walk away is Marine Parade Road with buses 13, 16, 31, 36, 43, 48, 55, 76, 135, 196, 197.  Coming from town, get off when you see the Marine Parade Neighbourhood Police.  There is a tiny path right behind the bus-stop.  Path is just 1-man wide next to a drain.  Follow it to get to St Patrick's Road and East Coast Road.
Bus 15 stops on nearby Telok Kurau Road.
Time:  Door opens at 7:30pm (for usual potluck, socialising, networking, etc),
presentation will start at 8:40 pm.
(For potluck just bring a small box of pastry or a packet of noodles enough for 3-4 people or a bottle or 2 of soft drinks). 

PLEASE NOTE YOUR ATTENDANCE BELOW SO THAT THE ORGANISERS HAVE A ROUGH IDEA HOW MANY ARE TURNING UP.
