    Red face Lonely in Hong Kong

    Hi there,

    Been living in Hong Kong for 2 months now and would like to meet some female friends.

    I am not able to work due to Visa regulations so am looking for female friends to shop and socialise with.

    I'm 32 and from the UK and interesting in meeting any other ladies.

    Get in touch

    Hi Emma,

    A group of ladies on the site have started a cooking group and they also meet quite often for lunch. I think FallingStar has the details. Her contact info posted here:

    Also, the American Women's Assn organise a coffee morning every Thurs at the Marriott Hotel Lobby Lounge. You don't have to be a member to attend. Its a great place to meet some other newcomers and explore HK together.

    you are not alone

    Hi Emma,

    Am just back from Australia and very pleased find this webpage for expat. Thou I'm a chinese logal girl but was a Chinese expat in Australia in the past 2 yrs. Unfortunately during my stay there, couldn't found any similar community and resource like this that help melting me in. Would like to understand the local culture and people and integrate smoothly. Put myself in your shoes, fully understand the feeling of being lonely and a minority. If I can be any assistance or even just talking/exchange experiences/support, please email me through [email protected]. No worries, you are not alone.

    HI Emma,

    I will be moving to HK in a couple of months and would love to meet up with you! I am also from the UK but have been living in Amsterdam for the last 2 years.

    My boyfriend is already in Hong Kong and is looking for somewhere to live. Where are you living?

    I gather that it is quite difficult to meet people.....

    Are you married and have moved with your husband? Where are you from in the UK?

    Message me back and we can have a chat!

    Lily,

    I didn't know you were leaving. Will we get to meet you before you leave?

    Ladies, I believe Tanya is on holiday and will be back in a month. Any other potluck ladies out there? Interested in meeting up soon?
