Tell me about it...

Postby AussieNewToSing » Wed, 04 Jun 2008 12:27 pm

Sharon...Congrats on your Aussie Hub, I have got myself a Dutch one...Fascinating breed :lol:

I have lived in London and Melbourne...You are right Sharon, Its entirely different this time around...My sister has lived inLondon long term as well as Japan and China for 2 years+ and has some fascinating theories about why the adjustment is so much more difficult in asia..

Look forward to sharing them with you on Friday

Liv (Ps Liv and Olivia are me) Sorry I get lazy sometimes...

Ah, it did cross my mind you might be the same person after I'd posted. My husband's father is Dutch so I have a great dutch name which I can't pronounce. Going to a Dutch disco stands out as one of the funniest experiences of my life so far!!

C u friday x

It's going to be 6!
Margriet is able to make it, which means the only one who is not comming is the one who started this topic! A bit sad, isn't it......

It was nice to meet everyone today. It seems that we are all in very similar situations. Its a shame not everyone could make it but we're planning another get together next Friday 11am at Raffles for a Singapore Sling or two!
