Melbourne girl 19 moving to Singapore

Postby i(L)melb » Fri, 04 May 2007 2:18 pm

Hi Everyone,
Im moving to Singapore next week and have no friends! I was born in Singapore but have lived all my life in Melbourne. So even though I'm pan asian I feel more Australian than Singaporean...(shhh don't tell the government) I would love to meet some friends. It's weird because I am so used to being the "odd" one in my group of friends who are all Caucasian. I hope I don't get too much of a culture shock. Definately taking Vegemite with me... :)

You can get Vegemite in Cold Storage... :)

Lots of pan-asians here nowadays anyway. Should be easy to find a good group.

Hi i(L)Melb.

I'm a Malaysian, spent a long time here in Singapore and I spent 6 years in Melb before I came here. Was one of those odd balls (The black hair amongs the multi coloured ones as I've always call it) when I was in Melb as well. You can e-mail me at vivienchong_ys@yahoo.com if you are keen to meet up. Looking forward to hear from you.


with love
