Making friends in Singapore

Denna goda hallomi-sallad agerade lunch när vi träffade på några potentiella Singapore-vänner. Mums och sååååå underbart att äta en måltid utan att oroa sig för gifter i maten!

 

Det här med att skaffa vänner här i Singapore har varken oroat mig eller M. Det gick så himla lätt och smidigt i Shanghai och de flesta som flyttar jorden runt är väldigt öppna och kontaktsökande. Igår var ett bra exempel. Vi var ute och åt lunch och vid bordet intill satt en annan liten familj med en docka i Almas ålder. Vi började snicksnacka och hipp som haver hade vi bytt emails och jag har fått en inbjudan till att följa med på en mamma-träff. Bara så där. Det händer lixom inte i Sverige (i alla fall inte för mig) men här är det en annan sak. Detta paret har själva bott i SIngapore i 3 år och de minns säkert hur det var när de kom hit och inte kände någon.

Jag måste även säga att facebook och bloggen har varit helt grymma när det gäller att skaffa sig kontakter här. Det är så många som hört av sig med kontakter till folk de känner här och jag ligger faktiskt lite efter att maila alla :-). Också alla som har hört av sig här på min blogg, helt grymt ju! (jag mailar i dagarna) Och skulle det vara så att du som läser detta bor i Singapore och hade tyckt att det var trevligt att lära känna en av stadens nyaste invånare, då får du gärna lämna en liten kommentar :-). För när man kommer helt ny till en stad när man inte känner någon, då är man evigt tacksam för alla kontakter man kan få tag på!

    Så bra att FB och bloggar kan underlätta kontakter! Inte helt lätt att vara ny i en stad. Men det låter som att ni snart kommer känna er hemma! :)

      Jag hoppas det! Vänner är viktigt så jag hoppas vi lär känna lite folk snart!

    Jag önskar att det var lite mer så även här hemma i Sverige. Att flytta till en ny stad kan vara nog så utmanande. Men gör jag själv något för att underlätta för nykomlingar i min stad? Ähum. Nä. Men man kan ju inte bara hoppa på någon på stan, sådär... eller? :-)

      Nä precis, Hur börjar man lixom?! En vän jag fick i Shanghai hittade jag i omklädningsrummet i gymmet. Bjöd in henne på en fika och vips så hade vi en vän!

    Jag tänker att många expats är i samma situation och därför är mer utåtriktade och kontaktsökande - jämfört med vanliga förhållanden i hemlandet. Det tänkte jag på när jag bodde i Danmark och bara umgicks med danskar. Det är precis som att vara ny i vilken annan stad som helst. Frågan kvarstår dock: hur lär man känna människor i en ny stad? (utan expats)

      Ja, det blir ju så. Tror att det är mkt svårare att få vänner om man flyttar till en liten stad i Sverige. Bra fråga, varför är det så,

    Vad du inspirerar! Jag som är så hemma-kär blir ju nästan sugen att flytta tvärs över jorden. Å maken min skulle jubla om jag förslog något sådant

    • lifeinshanghai 30 July, 2013 Reply

      Nämen så kul att lilla jag kan inspirera! Även jag är hemma-kär, eller familje-kär men det går faktiskt att kombinera. Har ju bott hos min mamma 2 mån i sommar tex. Det hade ju inte hänt om vi bott i Sverige.

    Men vad underbart att kunna skaffa lite kontakter redan att odla vidare när ni kommer tillbaka sen, sånt flyt! Mysigt ni verkar ha det! Får vi en glimt av ert nya boende tro? ☺

    • lifeinshanghai 30 July, 2013 Reply

      Klart ni kommer få!!! Verkar som att vi precis skrivit kontrakt och att vi kanske kan flytta om en vecka. :-)
