27/F just arrived from Chicago!

Postby BBoll » Thu, 21 Feb 2013 2:04 pm

Hi all, 27/F, I just arrived in Singapore yesterday from Chicago, on my own, and would love to meet people to join me in exploring the city!

I am generally up for any sort of activity…
- brunch (favourite!)
- athletics (particularly enjoy running, yoga, and a newbie to rock climbing)
- tours (for any other newbies out there!)
- trying new restaurants (the Chicago restaurant scene turned me into a wannabe foodie!)
- happy hours
- concerts
- sport watching
- anything else!

Start work on Monday but no plans otherwise. If you're new in town too or wouldn't mind a tag along for any sort of activity please let me know! PM me or please leave your email - I'm also brand new to this forum and can't PM quite yet…

Thanks :)

I suppose you should be watching for the Brunch club in the 30's Club sub-forum. Poc4hontas will usually make things up every month.

As for the rest...well, I could invite you in my crew ;) but that's your choice to join in or not. I can assure you, we'll make you feel welcome. :cool:

Hey Bethany,

Hope you're settling in OK. I would be keen on drinks sometime, I usually meet up with a few different groups on Fridays - like to float around.

I shot you an email, hope you don't mind! I moved here from London some months ago, am 27/m and work in investment research!

Hi Bethany,

I just arrived today (22nd) so I am in exactly the same situation. I also start work on Monday, so will just be finding my feet over the weekend.

Feel free to drop me an email shaun.henry84@gmail.com if you'd like to arrange a hang out.

I'm always up for Happy Hour... ha!!

Hi Bethany,

I am also new to Singapore. Enjoy Running and have recently got into climbing (four sessions so far!). Pro at getting musical/concerts tickets if I like something. Let me know if you wanna hit for a run together.

Hey everyone, welcome to Singapore to those who just came, and hello to those who I've seen before (MitulP and BBoll definitely)

I just sent out e-mails for a simple outing this Sunday, perhaps you'd like to join some of us. Pretty good place to find great photos.

Hi everyone,

I've also just recently arrived in Singapore and hoping to meet some friends! I like drinks, dinner, travel, brunch, languages, movies, concert, and (once I get used to the humidity) running/outdoors bootcamp training.

I am also looking for a condo share so any tips would be appreciated!

I have no plans this weekend so if anyone fancies brunch / drinks please PM me!

Hi - Sunday plans

Postby DaisyDivision » Sat, 23 Mar 2013 7:47 am

Hi Bethany - Thanks for your PM. I can't post replies yet - is it possible to email me at daisydivision@live.com and I'll get back to you?

Otherwise Im planning to meet up with some others for a cheeky afternoon beer (or coffee) tomorrow from 4pm at Robertson Quay. All are welcome if you fancy joining! Send me an email (no PMs please as I can't reply) and I'll get back to you with the details.
