22M UK Just Arrived

Postby McDonnell-Douglas » Wed, 19 Dec 2012 9:19 pm

Hi guys,
I arrived in Singapore last week, well the 9th :lol:, to begin a new job.

I have been getting myself involved in the company socially, e.g. the company football team, but I would also like to meet others including perhaps other expatriates.

I am up for anything, whether it is exploring the city, its various nature reserves and attractions, going shopping, going to the cinema or various other social activities. Just ask :wink:

I thought it would be prudent to give an insight into my hobbies and interests:

Musician - Electric Guitarist predominantly playing Metal, Hard Rock/Guitar Instrumental, Flamenco and Classical (A bit of a jump I know) :P My Influences are too varied and numerous to list. Again just ask.

Airpower Enthusiast. Fast Jets, what more can I say :cool: (The need for speed)

Computer Science. I am tempted to downplay this for social conformity but that would be disingenuous. I built my ow computer; don't be scared :shock:

Meanderings of Politics, Economics, History and Philosophy; but who doesn't :lol:

Feel free to reply or PM me, don't be nervous.

Best Regards,
Colin

Hi there. Thanks for getting in contact.

This Saturday and Sunday I will be busy looking for accommodation throughout the day. However I should be free in the evening :)

I am not a big drinker but am happy to have a few drinks none the less :D

I will PM you my email address.

Again if anyone else wants to meet up for whatever reasons my offer still stands. I will have plenty of free weekends, especially for any musicians or airpower enthusiasts.

Best Regards,
Colin

Hi Colin,

How have you been settling in? Im 21/UK/M, also arrived last week to begin a new job and still getting to grips with the whole singaporian lifestyle.

If you want, as we'r both new, maybe plan something in the upcoming weeks? I still havn't done much sight seeing so that could be an idea.

Let me know your thoughts,

Hi guys,

I've also recently moved to Singapore for a job, and am looking to meet people. Just a bit about me, I'm 22 and from America. I'm into a variety of things - sports, live music of all varieties (playing music too), etc. PM me if you're up to meet up for a drink. I'm still looking to explore all Singapore has to offer.

@McPerez88
Hi, I am adjusting nicely, a lot more settled now.
I am not much of a drinker to be honest, I have effectively stopped drinking outside of my residence, alcohol is prohibitively expensive and I struggle to stay awake in clubs (I think my dislike of the music wears me down).
Nevertheless I would be happy to go out and stuff and go to pubs, I just drink non-alcoholic beverages; I do this frequently with arab friends.
