Does anyone have or know of a suitable place for us to meet up - moms to chat and the kids to run around safely? I would offer up my condo's multipurpose room, but don't have one! Would open gym at Gymboree be ok? Any coffee shops that you know of with some space for our kids to explore? My son's now 18 months old and quite a mini mountain climber if he gets the chance to. If we can locate a place, I'm free to meet up anytime this week or next in the afternoon. I have another American mommy friend with a 21-month old son who'd be interested in meeting up, as well.

Royce's gym is pretty good for little ones. Ridiculously overpriced like many things here but at least it's safe, clean and has good quality equipment. It's at Liang Court.

I have a 2 year old and a 5 year old. Older one is usually in school but little one and I would be happy to meet up Tuesdays or Thursdays. We're Canadian.

American mom in culture shock freak out!

Postby RobynSFBAY » Thu, 31 Dec 2009 4:01 pm

Looking for american moms/women living near Holland....or moms also belonging to American Club. I've got two boys (3 &4). I am hoping to find some fun girls to befriend and of course to pick your brains about getting comfortable. I literally just landed but wasn't expecting this kind of anxiety! I've lived abroad before...but this feels BIG. Look forward to chatting.

American moving to Singapore- Overwhelmed!

Postby Garden Girl » Mon, 04 Jan 2010 11:48 pm

HI- I am moving from FL to Singapore in March. I too have a small child (3.5yrs) and will be looking to make new friends.
My husband will be working in district 1 and we are so overwhelmed with looking for a place to live and a pre school for our daughter. We are open to a local school or international with a strong bi lingual program (we are thinking Mandarin). We also want to be somewhat close to my husband's office. We are coming from a fairly large and new home and would like to find a newer condo. Do we look for a school or apartment first? Can anyone recommend where to start? My huband will be going to Singapore at the end of January to look for a place to live for us. Any help or site would be greatly appreicated. :D

get together!

Postby muitrang » Wed, 06 Jan 2010 11:13 am

Hi all! Would you like getting together next Tuesday at Vivo city (play area, 2nd floor, near Berger King) for coffee? I think it is a good place for moms to chat and kids to run around. I’m thinking about 11 am. Or any suggest? If any of you would like to join please reply or contact me directly at dan_mui@hotmail.com. Hope to see and get to know everyone. Mui

Hi, Did you just move from San Fran? We are moving from San Fran to Singapore in July and have also lived abroad before but not with kids and this move, with looking for schools and a place to live is seeming big to me too. How is it going? Is the American Women's Association good for meeting other Americans? It was my saving grace last time we were abroad but it seems like the Singapore expat community is way bigger than where we were. Also, this will be my first overseas move as a mom. I have a 5 year old boy.

Anyway, just saw your post and thought I'd say hello. I guess I am too new on the forum to do a "pm".

Hi,

I just moved here from the States last week. I have a 7.5 month old daughter and would love to meet some other stay-at-home moms and perhaps even join a playgroup. We live near Somerset MRT. Please let me know if anyone is interested - coffee? walking? bfast/lunch? exploring?

Thanks,

Amanda

Contact for Playdates!

Postby bierlyb » Wed, 31 Mar 2010 9:48 pm

I am having trouble using the pm feature on this forum, so I hope people find my note here. My husband and I just moved here from Chicago two days ago with our son. He is 13 months old and very active! I would love to meet up for playdates, coffee, etc., maybe even tomorrow or Friday. Please e-mail me at bierlyb@yahoo.com. Looking forward to hearing from people. I am a bit homesick. We live near Orchard Rd and Grange.

Postby balt2dub » Fri, 09 Apr 2010 12:57 am

I was too new to the forum to reply or post a private mssage back to you.

Thanks for your reply though and sorry we will miss you.

You said your son was 5 and went to SAS. Did he take the bus? If so, how did that go?

Thanks again and good luck!

Yes He takes the bus to SAS every day. 40 minutes each way and he totally does not mind.

Someone replied to my last forum post and expressed interest in meeting for a playdate. I am having trouble replying through the forum. I am definitely interested. Please send me a personal e-mail to bierlyb@yahoo.com (instead of replying through the forum).

Others, please let me know if you are interested in meeting for a playgroup. My son is 13 months old.

I'm also Asian-American (born and raised in Seattle) and new to Singapore with a daughter who is 21 months old.

We'd love to meet other moms and their kiddos! Please PM me if interested in getting together. (I've already PM'd a couple of folks on this forum.) We live near Newton MRT but willing to go wherever is kid-friendly.
