Business Discussion / Meet new people

Postby AmirulAriff » Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:31 pm

Hi Everyone,

To all new citizens and tourist/visitors.


I would like to meet new people. Establishing new relationships with anyone. We can discuss about business markets in Singapore or other general stuffs.

We could have some dinner or just Chat at anywhere around the island. I can suggest you some insiders and contacts that i know to meet your needs. Apart from business, i have some place that you can go with discounted prices, not only in Singapore but other neighbor countries. Sport Activities and etc..

I'm open to any new ideas/plans/events/activities.

To any interested parties, we can organize an event.

P/s. I don't do individual meet-ups. I prefer to be in groups.

Lets hangout and have fun.

Cheers

AREEF

Nooo, no way. He is here to help (all except himself of course). Great philanthropists do not appear on this forum too frequently but surely they exists. Maybe today is that day one of them just paid us a vist? Lets be optimistic.

Dear sundaymorningstaple,

Only a con artist knows how to identify another con artist.

Well, I am certainly not one. I am just contributing my free time to the others.

Anyway, thank you for the generous response.

I think the proper word was not optimistic, but rather....

see, that's where I get a bit offended.

Truth be told, almost everybody believes that a monkey can recognise another monkey, but .. a lot of people forget, those who got bitten by monkeys will recognise monkeys as well

And for con men ? well, those who been conned very royally remember the saying, once bitten, twice shy, or Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me !!

Does it Make any sense ?

what you are missing is, Singapore being small, most of the guys who starts to court 'expats' or claim to be interested in expats, most experienced expats know that the every other guy is making a comfortable living relieving expats of their hard earned money

Now, if you really want to do business, you may have approached other aveneues, and clubs, and chambers

And if you wanted ideas, same as above - what I see as well is you want guys to discuss ideas, so you can take the idea and make money - that's a good idea, but as I said, a lot have wisened up to such antics.

Probably you should go and spend time under a durian tree, to get the inspired like Sir Isaac Newton's Aha moment .. and then go forth and make money .. that sound like a wonderful idea for somebody who wants ideas

A fatuous statement.

Watching a couple of episodes of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3xjjy5GdhY ['The Real Hustle Season 1 Episode 1], or similar, is a pretty good primer for most people. That and possessing basic common sense. Does watching such programmes make one a con-artist, I must tell my aged parents that they're in trouble!
