Hi cpd2009-

Did you do swing and salsa at Columbia? I was on the Ballroom team in college. What brings you to Singapore?

Im a little late in joining the discussion but....

Hey everyone! I am a 21 year old American. I am over here for two months working before returning for my last year at University.

I would definitly enjoy hanging out with some fellow Americans, I saw that a group was getting together tonight the 7th....

Is that an open invite? Is it a whole group of you?

Paul

Wow! This is a rough group...anyway, husband and I are here from US...not only looking for Americans to hang out with...we don't care where you are from...anyway, we're late 20's / early 30's...from Texas...just wondering if anyone is organizing any activities...we love to watch the Office (Steve Carrell version), have wine, Korean food, Mexican food, whatever, travel, etc...we have 2 sons...not sure if that excludes us from having fun with the "kid-less"...Ciao

I'm a 25-year-old Californian by way of NYC. I recently moved here with my wife, who is Singaporean. I watch Jets games every week on our Slingbox and love comic books.

I would love to meet some fellow Americans, or really, any folks out there from any place. I've made friends with all my wife's friends, but you know, a guy's gotta have friends of his own, too.

I am also starved for american friends. I've made plenty of singaporean friends in my four months here but still have my moments when I crack an off color joke and people just stare at me, which makes me laugh even more and then I just look silly.

BTW I'm 29/M from Philadelphia.

To the guy with the slingbox, any chance of getting some Eagle's games on that thing? :D

Hmm...I'm Singaporean, but grew up in California...and yup, I'm game for a meet this friday before I go on my asian tour for 7 weeks!!! (Don't envy me..it's for work!)

Miss NorCal for sure...and yup, I know what it's like making jokes that no one understands or worse, stares at you!!!

I'll love to meet up as I'm pretty starved for the atmosphere that I grew up with.

I'm on MSN if anyone wants to chat...just PM me for the address...
Guilty by Association....NICE!
