singapore is a wonderful place to meet people from just everywhere; there are many gatherings in this forum or at the couch surfing site, singapore charter.tanusa wrote:We are American, but want to meet and socialize with people from all over the world.
correct, also the East Coast Park and a day trip to pulau ubin will do wonders... just at the jetty to the pulau ubin you can meet a bunch of families with kids going there.ScoobyDoes wrote: Alternatives are water parks and play parks dotted around Singapore where, again, through the kids you'd likely meet many sorts.
I agree, first wait until you arrive and then take one step at a time. You might find you do or dont need it. Find your feet first a then decide.cbavasi wrote:We lived here for over a year before deciding to join the American Club. The first condo we lived in had amazing facilities and as previous posters mentioned we really didn't have the need for the club b/c there were so many children around all the time and great playground, pool, gym, tennis...etc. We then moved into a place with very limited facilities and virtually no children and decided to bite the bullet and join. We also looked at joining another club but found the American Club really great for families. We have 2 children 5 & 2.5 and I'm there at least 5x a week - not to spend my entire day - but definitely for the kids activities - my husband and I meet up there for dinner/drinks... and they have a great gym/classes. There are tons of events - wine tastings, cooking lessons, golf outings...etc. We just figure since we paid all this money we'll use the facility as much as possible - but we tend to socialize outside of the club too. I would agree with other posters to get here first - see where you are living, what the facilities are like and how much you would actually use the club. You need to figure how easy it would be to get to for you as well...
hello movingtospore, i think i saw some of your other posts and, if I remember correctly, we have kids around the same age. we're planning to arrive in Singapore at the end of the year. Good luck with your move!movingtospore wrote:Original post we are arriving soon as well from Canada. We might join the club but we're going to check it out first as it is a LOT of money. But with two little kids in tow I thought it might be worth it for all the swimming lessons etc they offer.
