Hi

We are Emma And steve,DINKs, 28, from the UK, looking to meet other brits or westerners for socials and sports. Have been here 6 months ,nows the time to relax a bit and start meeting some buddies.
We love BBQs and drinking, and fun sports and activities (ex RAF)

hope to hear from like minded professionals or girl friends/wives that want to meet for shopping trips, and coffees also.

Cheers, Emma

Hi Emma

My name is Charlotte and I have just moved out here (end Dec) with my boyfriend who is also called Steve. I have just turned 30 (ouch) and he is 28.(no kids) We have moved over here for his job for 2 years and I am currently searching for one. We're finding it quite hard to meet people people our age out here so it would be great to all meet up for a drink if you fancied it?
We live on Farrer road, quite near Holland Village.

Let me know

cheers

Charlie

Emma, Charlotte, and the two Steves - plently of people to meet here if you want to go with expats. A few suggestions: the WNDC and FNDC threads here have regular get-togethers; there's also a trivia night every Tuesday, and plenty of other social offerings - just keep your eyes peeled.

Another suggestion is to subscribe to timeout Singapore (google will be your friend) and you get a weekly email of events, gatherings, etc.

Some other suggestions include joining a business association (seeing you don't need to worry about bub-sitters) - AustCham is excellent; the American Chamber is also good (from what we've experienced).

In short, just keep looking around the forum here and you're bound to meet people pretty smartly!

HTH, Capt. P

Hi Zeenit

Unfortunately as I am new to this I'm not allowed to PM yet. You're right - I was thinking of the British Club. If you could send me an e-mail with the details that would be great.

Thanks for your help, really grateful

New to Singapore (couple aged 26)

Postby lottielane » Thu, 05 Feb 2009 11:11 pm

Hi there,

We arrived in Singapore about 2 weeks ago now and would like to meet some expats of a similar age. We saw your original post Emma and Steve and Charlotte and Steve. We are Rob and Charlotte Cook from the UK. Rob works in sports out here and I am a designer with a business in the UK and about to set it up in Singapore too. Hopefully! If you would like to meet up for dinner, drinks etc or tea/coffee/shopping in the day time then I am free most days.

Have you guys managed to meet up? We're a couple in our 20s too, been here almost 2 years now and we don't come across Brit couples very often! All our mates are either single/married! :) Let us know if you guys are keen to meet up for drinks sometime.
