Anyone from Malaysia/Singapore? Or anyone one from Canada (Vancouver)?

Hi,

I just moved from Vancouver to Zurich. Since I have chinese-malaysian background and I miss all asian stuff here, I was hoping to make friends from either malaysia or singapore, so we can share moments together and feel 'home'. Of course, people from other countries are welcome. Please reply me here or PM and let's see how we can gather. =)

Why do you think Singaporeans actually hang out in restaurant Singapore?? The food there is some crappy chinese food and nothing like Singapore. Plus Swiss prices. I know a number of Singaporeans and Malaysians and none hang out there.

Re: Anyone from Malaysia/Singapore? Or anyone one from Canada (Vancouver)?

Welcome to Switzerland! I'm Singaporean but I live in Bern. There are quite a lot of us in Zurich actually. If you have facebook, look for the group Temasek Club Switzerland. They do meet-ups quite often. If you ever come to Bern, give me a shout. In the meantime, enjoy ah!

Hi there!

I have also just moved from Vancouver to Zurich (currently living in District 4). I literally just got in last night! I am still trying to get used to the surroundings and figure out the train system, so if you are up for trading tips/meeting up, please shoot me a PM!

Hi everyone!

I'm a Malaysian, who was working in Singapore until I got seconded to Switzerland. Just arrived in Zurich last Saturday and am currently busy apartment-hunting... It's really a pain since I'm alone with limited budget >.<

Anyway, would really love to get to know all of you as I haven't met any other Malaysian here except for a friend, who is leaving soon

I was just reading the thread and just requested to join the "Malaysians in Switzerland" page in FB

Look forward to meeting you guys!

Cheers!

Hi! I am a half Malaysian and half Singaporean and I just moved to Zurich for work. I am a young professional and hoping to meet other Malaysians/ Singaporeans too! Let me know if you're interested as well.

Hi Zoe,

I'm not sure about any upcoming events, but it would be great to meet up to trade tips etc and find new friends in Zurich. When did you move to Zurich? I just moved here 2 days ago.

Re: Anyone from Malaysia/Singapore? Or anyone one from Canada (Vancouver)?

I am a Malaysian, living in Zurich as PhD. PM me if you want to meetup. I like going to the mountains with Swiss locals. Doesnt matter if you dont hang out with your countrymates, the important point is leaning the local culture since you are in Switzerland.

Apa Khabar? Malaysian in Basel! Can see from posts, many are from Zurich. Too bad I don't really go there very often.
