Where can I meet FRIENDS


#241

hi there James, thanks for the welcome and interesting question! haha yeah i read about those survey results too. Having lived there my entire life + traveled outside of Singapore to various countries for work/leisure, I honestly don’t find the survey results very meaningful. After all, across cultures, I do think there is some degree of commonality in terms what people find joy in (family/friendship etc) and it’s really up to the individual to seek out what makes them happy. Perhaps Singaporeans might be a little more vocal compared with other nationalities in terms of voicing our dissatisfaction with life in general, but i don’t think that makes us more miserable than the rest of the world =P

Well, that’s good to know. My favorite airline is Singapore Airline and the flight attendants all seem very cheerful (and beautiful). I figured the people there can’t be that miserable if they got one of the best airline food. :slight_smile:

Hey Folks,

I’m from the UK, recently moved to Taipei (Shilin), and I’m looking to make some new friends/hommies/chums.

I’m a very chilled guy, and if anyone would like to go for a coffee (or scooter trip through the countryside/Taipei rush hour), or just a general mooch about and a chat, drop me a line.

G :slight_smile:

Hello!

My name is Lakai. I am a twenty-one-year-old Asian American of Cambodian-Chinese descent. I am arriving to Taiwan in a week for school in Taichung–Providence University, and would like to make friends. While I hope to make friends in the University, I also hope to make friends beyond it too. Hmm…I wouldn’t consider myself the type to enjoy clubbing or the bars. I am more drawn into things like sight-seeing, meditation, and outdoorsy activities. My Mandarin is still in the beginning level so I can get by with English. I can also understand Khmer, however, I am not orally fluent in it.

Don’t hesitate to PM me! Thank you.

Hello,
I’m a native Taiwanese girl in my mid 30s. My boyfriend is an Aussie, who has lived in Taipei with me for a little more than 2 months. I’m currently trying to teach him to speak Mandarin, which is quite difficult. lol. I’m looking to find some English-speaking friends for us because I really don’t want to translate the whole time when we hang out. It can be a little annoying. :stuck_out_tongue: We live in Zhonghe, New Taipei City. So, if you need to hang out (have coffee, go dining, sightseeing, etc) with a local (me) and an xpat (him), feel free to leave me a msg.

Greetings from the city of Taichung,

I am male 28, raised up in Taichung then lived in Seattle for more then 15 years and decided to move back to TW to pursue a different career path.

Would love to meet some new people in town that has similar background as mine. The opening post put it in the best way: sometimes it’s damn hard to find people that you can connect with. (similar background)

So if you like to watch a NFL/NBA game on Sunday nite, BBQ party, hiking, travel around Taiwan, etc… you should definitely pm me.

You can always line/email me to start the conversation, and if you are close to Taichung, we can go grab a drink as well.

Peace.

-Paul

I’m an ABC living and working in Taipei. I used to study mandarin at 師大 (MTC) for 2 years and now I’m working in a PR agency. I’ve been in Taiwan for 3 years. Now that I’m working and not in “school” I no longer have the chance to meet many new people. A lot of my friends from MTC have also went home So some of my interests are deep house, soulful house, jazz music, finance/economics (I have trading experience), small businesses or startups in Taiwan, MMA (spectator), Judo and BJJ (participant), badminton, ping pong, indoor rock climbing, biking, hiking, looking things up on Wikipedia, and computer games. I’m pretty sure there’s a lot more but that’s enough for now. If you found any of that appealing feel free to send me a private message.

I’m 26

To my surprise, so many overseas born Chinese backed in Taiwan. What happened out there?

I’m local Taiwanese 45m, never married, running 2 businesses in Taiwan. If you search 薑博士 in Google, the first search result popping up in the list is me. (Yes I have a book)

I have a wide range of interests: singing, songwriting… (read my profile). Other than those, especially, if you are interested in doing business with export/import of delicate dried fruits or other dried produces from Taiwan, PM me.

More business-wise info will follow but not good to be posted here. Watch out for my future posts in business section. They might change your lives.
