Looking for latinos

Postby expat2008 » Wed, 15 Oct 2008 6:59 pm

Hi I just moved here from NYC two weeks ago. I was wondering if there are any latinos. I am a female from Puerto Rico and would love to meet latinos in Singapore.

Latinos

Postby MarleneS » Thu, 27 Nov 2008 12:14 am

Hola,

I am currently in Florida. My husband has been trying to convince me to move to Singapore. To tell you the truth I am terrified of the thought of living there. It's just so... far :)
Anyway, how are you guys coping? It it difficult to adapt?
I am a product designer and think with luck and a well equipped resume I can eventually find a job.
Please tell me a bit about your experience upon arrival and what pushed you to Singapore.
EXPAT2008, I wish you the best and would like to know how things are going so far and why you moved to Singapore. I am originally from NYC too.
Wish you the best and hope you have a smooth transition.

some people may tell you that the being too far part is not a good excuse :)
Once you're there, it will be so close! But I know what you mean.

Hi,

I am Singaporean Chinese... and would like to meet latinos too. 8-)
Have always been interested in Latin American culture and stuff.
I would like to learn Spanish and I can teach you Chinese if you are interested. I have taken a beginner's Spanish course before but that was some time ago and since forgotten most of it. But it should come back easily.

Currently, I'm also learning to play the bongos. Anyone here plays bongos? Maybe we can meet up to play together but I can only play Martillo at the moment. :oops:

Latina Chilena in Singapore!

Postby xija » Tue, 09 Jun 2009 9:22 pm

Hey everyone!

I've recently arrived to singapore and it feels there arent many latin people around ¿are there? I've seen the question being posted a couple of times, joined the latin circle and wrote to the latin women club that meets in singapore but havent heard a response from them. Anyhow, any latins out there? I am a 27 year old chilean that is starting the S-pass visa documentation to work in a financial advisory firm here in singapore. Would love to meet other latin people ! Cheers!

hola!

llevo 4 a+os aca y no, no hay muchos latinos. sin embargo si hay mucha atraccion por toda la "cosa" latina y encontraras varios latinofilios; basicamente aca entre los latinos solo tengo un buen amigo de mexico.

yo frecuento el FNDC (friday night drinking club) y regularmente me encuentro con uno que otro espa+ol o alguna persona que habla castellano pero muy raramente con iberoamericanos.

saludos!
