Any Asian Americans here?

Postby ironandwine » Fri, 14 Aug 2009 9:49 pm

Yeah so we are a rare breed in Singapore, am I right? Everyone I meet thinks I'm an internationally-schooled Singaporean until I tell them how I frequently drive through four ERPs by accident trying to get home. You know what I'm talking about.

I'm an early/mid 20s, half Chinese Korean American guy from NYC now working at a hedge fund here in Singapore. I've been here about half a year now, and while it's been fun the homesickness has really started to sink in. Let's remind each other of where we grew up!

Please, no locals/SPGs unless you've really lived abroad and can convincingly turn off the Singlish.

Otherwise, send me a message! I don't care if you're a guy or a girl. I live around Robertson Quay and work in the CBD--I'd be up for drinks/dinner weekdays near those places.

Well Evan, American Born Asians are not that rare in Singapore.

Let's just name a few noticeable ones, i.e. those in showbiz/TV:

Allan Wu, host of The Amazing Race Asia

Jimmy T

Mark Zee

Robin Leong ... dragon.htm

Eugene Lee ... 50/1/.html

Richard Lui, curently with CNN, was formerly with Channel NewsAsia ... chard.html

Howard Lo ... 531a1.mspx

Having met a few of them, it's safe to say that ABC/J/Ks do go to the usual popular expat hangouts . . .
WNDC and FNDC too . . .
