30/m from USA (CA & NC) - Greetings!

Postby GoldenBeaR6 » Wed, 30 Jan 2013 5:50 pm

Hello! I hopped off the plane last night at Changi with a dream and my cardigan (not kidding...there was snow on the ground when I left 29 hours prior). It's my first time in Asia. I'm here to work on my PhD at NUS and have a ton of fun. I love outdoorsy activities, as well as indoorsy activities. I'm an engineering student, volunteer firefighter/emt, runner, dog lover, sushi lover, beer drinker, and sports fan. Let's be friends.

I live near MRT EW17 in case anyone happens to be nearby. Hit me up if you'd like to be forum friends, facebook friends, or perhaps real life friends!

Chris

heh... same here... I' came from Belgium on 3rd Jan... was -5 deg and snowing when I left. Arrived here into an air conditioned airport, got straight into an aircon taxi and then straight into an aircon hotel. Rested for a while then decided to get some food as it was like 9-10pm… out of pure habit I put on a sweater, an ankle length camel hair over coat and a scarf…. Made it about 200metres down the road before having to turn back and take all that crap off. I was wondering why the reception staff were giving me when I walked through the lobby….

Anyway, I'm 1/2 Irish, 1/2 Burmese and like most of the stuff you like, especially drinking beer... hit me up on alittlerisky@yahoo.com if you fancy a few pints of guinness one evening.

laters!

Hey Chris.

How has Singapore treated you so far? Has it robbed you of your sense of humor yet? Hold on tight to that one, man.

I'm into climbing if you're into that. Also an avid spectator of tennis and hockey (I consider being an avid spectator as a sport). And also into TV and movies.

Well, I've been here for a while (about 8 years, so you can ask me anything, however inane) and I'm up always up for a beer or two (and by two, I really mean two, it gets crazy by the third). Email me at capt.mal@gmail.com

Hi there,

just got here 3 weeks ago but spent the complete last week in china. So I am still pretty new here and would love to meet up and get to know some people.

Any plans for the weekend yet? Just send me an email if anything is planned so far: lialill7888@gmail.com

Im German, female, 24 and have a passion for travelling.

Looking forward to meeting up!

GoldenBear6, I'm surprised you're raring to go and jet-lag free already. But then who has time to waste, yeah?

Anybody free tomorrow or the weekend?

Hello!

32/Female/Filipina here. Just arrived 3 weeks ago and started work in NUH. I'm a surgeon, cat and dog lover, beer/any alcoholic beverage drinker, sushi lover. Interested in meeting new friends, as all my drinking buddies are back home and I sorely miss hanging out and having a few drinks with friends. I live near EW22, drop me a line at kittybearmd@gmail.com if anyone wants to have a drink or two (or three or four...)

Cheers! :D
