New to Manila

Post Posted: Wed Jan 10, 2007 12:17 am

Hi,

I've just moved to Manila for an 18 months posting from London and wondering if there was anyone on here living here at the moment?

I'm in my early twenties and trying to settle at the moment, find my feet, deciding where to live, and trying to find myself a new group of people!

where are you staying in Manila? There are so places to hang-out here, some of them includes in Libis, Quezon City and in Rockwell or Ayala Makati. You will find a lot of foreigners and the resto-bars are internationally franchise.

by the way Filipinos are great in establishing friendship ties just watch out for individuals who might take advantage of your innocence. Smile

If you need more info pm me and Ill try to help you out. Very Happy
