Hey there,

Glad the both of you have decided to make this sunny island your new home. 27 y.o. Chinese lass here. Not local but have been in SG for quite a while. Looking to kick-start my social life again after months of drudgery at a fairly new job (the recession ain't helping).

Drinks, movie or dinner anyone?

Hi newcomers and welcome. The usual staring points are the WNDC, FNDC, and of course, the infamous TUE night trivia nights (which are more like general knowledge than useless trivia).

You find all of these by using the inbuilt search engine - just look for "pib trivia", "FNDC", and "WNDC".

Welcome!

Mr. P

Dear vann3,

Well, perhaps you can attend outings that was organise by some of the members here... Depending on what you like, you can attend if you wish. But of course, in order to find friends, I guess you need some intro of yourself... Especially what you prefer etc... So that those who shared the same hobbies with you, will gladly be your friends.... I guess you will prefer some friends who share the same like, rather than different... As if different, both of you might not 'clique'...

You can try join the FNDC club which they have outing almost every Friday to pub or whatever for drinking session... You can meet many nice and good ppl there too...

As for sports, depending on what sports you like. Can join me in swimming if you want, and also I have a cycling/eating/camping outing at Ubin this coming Sat... So you may want to join too ^^

Hi Vann,

I am 25/f from the US and just moved to Singapore about 6 weeks ago. I like the city but I've hardly met anyone outside of work so far!

I'm up for seeing music, getting coffee or drinks or just walking around SG- let me know if you want to meet up :)

Like Michelle I can't pm yet as I don't have enough posts. Girls night out would be great! I'm out of town this weekend but tomorrow might work or we could try for next week.

Hope to see you soon!
