Friendly advice to u sire, your over enthusiasm reeks of one tequila too many and may ladn u in a hangover plus a removal of your post which would leave u none the happier over your having your deadline unmet. Save yourself the agony of too many posts. We READ YOU LOUD AND CLEAR Just frenly advice before the neighbourhood moderators moderate u out of existence from this and other threads :lol:

Expat club

Am I thick or something? One tequilatoomany...........what's the prob with this person's post? OK, it asks a lot of questions....but maybe this really is a student doing a survey. I agree, the nos of questions to answer put me off a bit, but I don't mind helping this person...but I would only do it in my precied style and they'd have to adapt my answers to their questionnaire.

So, though I don't have a club anymore, I used to, for 8 yrs.
It was the Hollandse Club.
I joined cos it had great facilities for me and the kids.
I am not Dutch, which made it more attractive to me, not being surrounded by hordes of other Brits. Not that I dislike them, it was just a change.
I also loved the friendliness of the Dutch and the way they get you involved in everything. I went onto being on the editing comm of the magazine for six years and know that they go flat out to get everyone to join in, kids, old folk, young. etc.
A big plus was that my company paid for the initial joining fee, tho I was to pay monthly after that.
What else did you ask?
Hmm, yes it was nearish to Farrer Rd, where I lived, being Adam Rd. The Brit club or Tanglin too far away. Cricket club out, too grown up for kids and no pool.
So, that's all I can tell you. And pardon me if this postee is just looking for facts to set up some scam or other, but I will take them as honest, and hope this helps, a little.
