Actually, I'm wondering what I'm going to do in Jakarta. Back home in KL, I have friends that I can call up for a lunch or a meet. Now what?
I do not fit the profile of the other expat wives that are in our social circle. They are mainly British, in their mid to late 40s (I think! God.. I hope they don't kill me for exposing their ages! Hehe), some of them have children in the home and most seem to be able to drink quite a bit without falling over. I am, er... okay lah.. in my early 30s, we're still working on getting a baby and I get really happy after a drink or two. While I do enjoy their company and learning the "British way of life" from them, sometimes I feel as if I'm a tropical fish in a sea full of er... cod. (It's the only northern fish I know)
So I'm wondering if I can make friends with the locals but they all seem to be either a) glamourous and rich and snooty and use tons of hairspray b) the maids
I checked out the British Women's Assoc for a lark. They have Full and Partial membership. Full members are either British nationals or spouses of British nationals. Oh. That's me then. Spouse of British national. Then I took a look at their activities and it listed things such as "...bridge, sewing, Scottish country dancing..."
I think I'll just run off with the young handsome pool boy.
