Postby dianneski888 » Mon, 16 May 2016 10:35 pm

Hello! Im new to this forum and recently moved to Singapore 1.5 month ago. I'd like to make new friends and hopefully this channel is one way to meet interesting and fun people around here.

Im 30y.o female, lived in Bangkok for 5 years and have travelled around Asia. I enjoy good food and the occassional drinking every Monday til Friday!

Nice to meet you all!

Hi Dianne, welcome to the forum and to Singapore. you going to soon find that drinking in Singapore is going to be a hell a lot more expensive than in Bangkok. ;)
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

The method here is to drink a few big bottles of beer at a hawker stall or some wine at home before heading out....
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

For sure... I noticed the other night Jolly Rogers happy hour goes from 4 to 8 which is pretty reasonable... however it is still cheaper to pre-load as Raj says.
