Looking to make some new friends

Postby jenctan » Fri, 13 Jun 2008 1:43 am

Hey,

My job relocated me to Singapore about 3 months ago, and since then have managed to make most of my friends from work.

Im looking to break into the expat circle and anyone else who is interested in music, travel, art, culture and life in general!

Im currently living in Novena, would like to move out and share a place with like-minded people.

Im 23, female, grew up in Newcastle, Australia. But my dad is Singaporean and my mum is Korean, so throw in an Aussie accent, a taste for drinking, music, and an appetite for life, and get to know the rest!

Jen

P.s. I just got back from a trip in Paris, and would be extra happy to meet some French people to chat with.

Hi Jen

Can't help you on the living thing, but would love to make friends. I love music, books and travel, as well as outdoor things and sport. I am nearly 30, hail from Edinburgh in Scotland and have been in Singapore for a week. I am working in the north of Singapore as academic staff in a polytechnic. Keen to make some new friends... interested...??

Yes I would love to hang out Scottish lass.

And, it would make me very happy to chat (in French). You made me laugh. This is exactly what I want, and tried. I love cooking, making dinner parties, having friends over. I realised very quickly that its not usual here.

My email is jenctan@hotmail.com.

Looking forward to meeting you!

been to scotland and love the scenic highlands with the mountains, lakes and sheeps. especially oban, the small town along the coast. missed it.

tried learning french once but the problem with new language is if there's no one to practise with, you'll lose it quickly. probably only remember a few key phases now.

perhaps we can organize a dinner party with cooking? i love to cook (but not the washing up ha!) otherwise we can have dinner somewhere in town over a friday night, just for a start?

cheers,
john (a singaporean looking to expand my circle of friends)
