Am I too young for expat?

Post by coastaloasis » Thu, 17 Sep 2009 8:55 am

I've got an expat offer but will be only 22 next year when I arrive. (Male)
Will there be other super young expats?

Also I am a 197cm chinese-american...... what types of problems will this cause me?

Aside from being occasionally referred to as a banana, probably absolutely none. You might come off as pretentious if you have a distinctly American accent but you should fit right in. There are plenty of young expats here and the locals will let you assimilate without any problems.

man... 1.97m is tall by asian standards. i hope you are a social animal, and don't look/behave like a FOB.

then you'll gonna enjoy yourself, coastal, and i sense you will be getting very lucky during your stay in singapore...

(surely there's no such thing as too young or too old!)

Yeah 22 is just waay too young, and 1.97cm is just waay too tall.

Sorry buddy, you are going to have to wait until you are at least 25, and even then, I`ll need a written letter from your mother than you will be a responsible and law abiding citizen. :D

you have no idea what you're talking about, playboy!

take tall sport here out to velvet (or wherever it is they hang out these days) across a coupla weekends, and in no time you'd have all the leggy models no one used to give time of day to all over the place.

1.67m or 1.76m won't make a difference to you when they've sidled into the nook with you! BOOYA!!! ah, to be young again...

ARGH!!!! to be young again!!!!!!! sslksldg;lsdgh;lasghlas;ldgasg

i must stop. but alas, my shift is not over yet.
