Singapore.pm was founded in February 1999 by Chen Shenglong Bryan. It was "resuscitated" by Gaurav Vaidya in September 2008, who then left Singapore in 2011.
Perl Mongers is both a common term for a Perl user group (like this one!) as well as "a loose association" of Perl user groups around the world. There are hundreds of such groups; many meet monthly, stay in touch, promote Perl to the larger programming community, and organize lectures, talks and discussions.
