From Singapore in Luzern

Hi,

I came across EF when I was first here but was too busy settling in to contribute.

I am from Singapore and has been in Switzerland for a few months. Has enjoyed the Autumn, the snow in winter and now spring bloom.

So far I have enjoyed my stay being right in the centre of Switzerland. Language is still a huge problem Food is great, does most of my own cooking though I miss some of the simple Singapore fares. If anybody is interested in having some chinese food or Sheperd's Pie, I am able to cook pretty well

Or if anybody is interested in practising their Chinese, look for me

Cheers!

Hi Vivien!

I'm from Singapore as well but I'm living in Zürich. A warm welcome to you and it is indeed getting warmer!

I have a couple of Malaysian friends who live in Luzern so if you like to have some contacts then just PM me for details.

Have fun & enjoy the impending summer months!


Cheers,
Rodney

Hi there Vivien!

welcome and nice to see another Singaporean close by.. I'm in Basel and have met quite a few other Singaporeans here already.

Been here for about half a year already, and enjoying it lots. Hope you are too and do give a shout out if you come up to Basel.

Re: From Singapore in Luzern

Thank-you everybody for the warm reception. Now, I don't feel so isolated.

Good to know that there're quite a number of people from the tiny island here and people that enjoy the tiny island of Singapore.

Re: From Singapore in Luzern

there sort of is a Singapore day in Switzerland - in the form of the National Day celebrations that the Permanent mission in Geneva organizes every year.

Only problem is that it is in Geneva - so it is a long "commute" to go to Geneva for a day from the German speaking side.

An email will come by if you are registered with the Temasek Club here to let you know when that happens (usually on a weekend 1 or 2 weeks before Aug 9)
