Toronto, Canada Community Manager
I can't believe how quickly this week has gone by, I feel like it was only a moment ago when I was talking about last week's social. 🙂 I hope your week has been ok and you are all staying nice and healthy.
Thank you once again to the team of people who came to our last catch-up last Thursday. We all had a great time talking about the things we would take to a deserted island and many resourceful ideas came to light. Some of things included; a mirror which not only can you check how your hair is doing, but you can also use it to attract attention from local boats and also a tool for cutting trees/food and also a chicken came up quite a lot as a useful companion for eggs. But, of course an endless supply of Pringles and my personal addition of HP (brown) sauce (didn't think that through so much), would be amazing additions–to mention just a few things. 🙂 Feel free to share more details on this post here.
Back on to this week, we will be back on an APAC friendly time (I hope this time works for many of you):
Friday 15th, 12:00PM UK*
Sydney - Friday 15th, 9PM
Darwin - Friday 15th, 8:30PM
Seoul - Friday 15th, 8PM
Spain - Friday 15th, 1PM
New York - Friday 15th, 7AM
If you would like to join, please register before the start time using this specific link (this link changes each week so if you have registered before, you will need to do it again - sorry): https://airbnb.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJcscu6prDMqG9IzhX3QjQLWF4RhlR-47sDn
Not sure how to use Zoom? Check out this CC guide.
For anyone new to the socials, it's a weekly online meetup where CC members come together to connect with each other and have a bit of positivity along the way. It's not specifically Airbnb focused and anyone new is very very welcome.
Theme of discussion: we didn't have one this week, so I hope you don't mind the one I selected (any other suggestions most welcome)...
If you are like me, plants are really nice things to surround your home/office and I think they help to bring an essence of calm (maybe not the spiky ones! 🙂 ). I know many of you enjoy house plants or the plants in your garden and so I thought it might be fun to share our favourites and any tips we might have for keeping plants happy (or any plant woes).
Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and if you can't attend or want to get the ball rolling, feel free to share your plants below.
Thank you and I can't wait to speak with you.

Hi @Lizzie tried to join last week on Zoom as instructed and it showed as having a fault so I couldn't be part of the meet up 😞
Aww I'm so sad to hear you could get in–sorry about this.
I wonder, for each weekly session we are using a different Zoom link. Do you think it was the wrong link?
Did the fault say anything in particular?
Are you able to attend this week's meetup?
@Lizzie Is that my Saturday I think I can make it.
Yesterday was our International Nurses Day, our Don visited all the wards along with Florence Nightingale in tow to say hello. We generally get a slice of cake but for H&S reasons this year we got a little bar of Whittaker’s 😉 which was quickly scoffed
(photo from my phone not taken yesterday )but representing India , Australia, UK & NZ 😉
peace love and mung beans
Happy International Nurse's Day for yesterday @Ria16. I have several friends and family members that are nurses and you are all incredible–not just during the crisis now (which is particularly amazing), but always.
A massive thank you. I hope you get many Whittaker bars soon and great photo. 🙂
It would be so lovely to speak with you in the meetup.
Timezone-wise in Auckland, I think this would be: Friday May 15th, 11PM (quite a late one for you)
Don't forget to register with the link above if you are able to make it. 🙂
@Lizzie Thanks Lizzie without a doubt we missed a huge apocalypse here thanks to our governments rulings. I for one am and always will be eternally grateful.
My heart goes out to all the essential workers around the world who are risking everything.
I should mention I am an indoor plant killer so I only have a fake cabbage tree;)
haha @Ria16 ! Well all trees are welcome in our meetup, even fake cabbage trees! 🙂
Looking forward to speaking with you then.
I will definitely make it this week~ see you soon!
Don't have any plants though....... I'll enjoy everyone else's~
@Lizzie I will be at work but I will try to remember to bring my laptop and join! I may be in and out though as 7am my time I'll be in the middle of my radio show!
This is amazing @Suzanne302, sounds good to me–the meetups are pretty relaxed, so it would be lovely to see you.
The link to register for this week is in my post above.
I hope you have some good tunes on the list for Friday 🙂
Thank you so much.
Hi @Lizzie ,
I'll be there this Friday but has to leave early as I have another meeting right after this .
See you soon,
It will be lovely to see you @Marissa107. Just to mention the link in the topic above is a different one to last week, so best to get it strange from this topic. 🙂
Also, I wonder if you have seen this recipe topic in the CC? I wondered if you might be able to share your banana peel burger recipe there? I think many people would be very intrigued to hear about it. Let me know if you want a hand with adding a photo or anything.
I hope you are having a good week.
I'll give it a go. Thanks. I'll email you if I encounter some problem.Thanks for your kindness.
@Lizzie So excited! I'll be up and dialing in from Maine, where I've actually planted things! Relieved I won't be in New York to show the little cactus on my windowsill... Can't wait to see you all!
