Hi Everyone,

Is it too late to hop in?

I'm 30/F single and originally from NYC. Of course, I'm more of a "third culture kid" - having grown up partially in the US and the Philippines (where my folks are from) but being neither here nor there.

Looking forward to meeting you guys later.

another yank just arrived this weekend (and a bit technologically challenged) - can't figure out how to respond to messages in the inbox, so please send me an email if there are any meet-ups (work transfer - so trying not to just hang out w/ the folks from work).... littleschnookums@yahoo.com (yeah, go ahead and laugh at it, i know).

[quote="countzero"]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.

I am not american, but I love American hehe

Just take it slow, make some pause for every single syllable, you might miss your funny moment, but not theirs hehe

Just try it, its pretty hard and awkward at first but you'l get through it as time goes by. I trying to perfect a chop chop joke and I realized that the single liners works on them hehe

Did a weekly gathering ever get organized?

Thursday after work / happyhour /dinner would be good,
( Don't want to interfere with the FNDC )

Sunday nights are pretty good time to gather at a food court or coffe shop ...?


PS - I can empathize with Americans wanting to spend time with other Americans. (somebody from Texas would be a bonus)
I really enjoy travelling and experiencing other cultures, I have lived in 8 other countries, visited a dozen more.
but sometimes it is nice to 'hang' with people who have a common frame of reference.

I would extend an open invitation to everyone, as long as you dont mind hearing about: baseball, apple pie, and Chevrolet
:D
