Swedish Singapore n00b

Postby urichon » Wed, 01 Feb 2012 9:56 pm

Hi guys!
I'm a Swedish female neuroscience researcher who just moved here and would love to meet some cool people to hang out and do adventurous things with! I enjoy having a beer or two, good food, good conversation and traveling. I work at the NTU and live at the west end of town (at the moment - I'm also looking at finding a flatshare with chill individuals).
Cheers,
Malin

Welcome to Singapore (and welcome to the forum board).
Hope you have smooth transition and settling down well here.

:)

Been itching to ask:
Do you happen to be related of Amy Farrah Fowler? :P

Thanks guys!

So far so good (except it will take me some time getting used to the housing situation - I'm renting a room from a family and I'm persona non grata in the kitchen & living room).

if you are asking the 'researcher' she gotta be mighty tempted enough to make the travel all the way from the "WEST SIDE" :D I hope you know where NTU is ....
