Errk, I am gonna whine, a bit. Please bear with me he he.
I am 70% confident that I will NOT get a friend here in my condo. Apart from us not having a soul on our floor, most people work and the many times I go in and out I hardly bump into anyone in the elevator. The Pak Guard is friendly though :)
And I have to say it again. The people here (the condo) are all stuck up and snobbish, Even my husband agreed, he's been here for 8 months and the only people that would say hi or acknowledge him are the Mat Sallehs.
And there is hardly any chance of me making friends with the moms at Azam's school. There is no Parent Support Group (PSG) like the International School in Japan and everyone just drive through to drop their kids and drive through to pick them up. Unless Azam has some friends over or he goes over to his friends place, I wont meet any moms. And I dont think that will happen soon either. Maybe I should suggest to the school and start a PSG? Its so much fun back then, we have coffee mornings, outings and activities. The school even reserves a room for us to carry out our activities, cooking class, line dancing, quilting etc. I spend almost everyday at school doing something with other expatriate moms. I guess its harder here because most of the moms are working?
I tried to make some friends, I did. The notice board carried a flyer about yoga class. So, I thought, why not? Its the fastest way to meet and make new friends. And boy, was I wrong.
Called up the instructor (Jeff) and he was really friendly and asked me to come down and meet him before class. Luckily I told him I will observe first and join the next class. So there I was talking to Jeff and the ladies started to come in one by one. All just looked at us and there I was smiling and no one smiled back. They just looked at me like I am an alien or something and went about to setting out their yoga mats and talking to each other. One came in late and smiled feebly at me, and I said hi and that scared her away LOL. And Ms You cant swim like that was also one of the students. I dont think she recognised me though, probably the hair ! Jeff introduced me to the group and no one said anything. I was totally flabbergasted. So stuck up one laa ..
I havent given up yet. I havent ventured out looking for a gym or running place and hopefully I will find some friends. If not then I will have to just make do with being friends with me LOL. I have some kind of routine worked out if I cant find a proper running place or gym. Cant find a solution? Improvise !!
Its only been 4 days so yeah, I have to give it more time.
But first things first, next week I am going to join that yoga class just to irritate the hell out of the ladies LOL. And I am going in one of my gym outfits that will put their sweatpants and tshirts to shame hihihii .. I am evil I know but hey, I tried being nice :) But then again who knows? I might just make a friend or two he he ..
Have a nice day all :)
