Hi!!

Me and my husband moved to Perth last month...Till now we are finding the city very isolated and boring....

Please if any indians who would want to meet up during the weekend would be great.

Is your request just for Indians only? If so, you'll be narrowing your chance of meeting people.

Don't forget about that whole "integration" thing.

I suggest visiting temples around your place (around would mean 30-50 KM Radius!). You can easily get hold of good connections through the priest and temple staff.

Also regularly visit some Indian stores (like vegetable stores) nearby and you will easily get connections to hand full of indian community:)

The point is, who ever comes here will have open mind to talk to and keep in touch with other Indians!

Hi Mohita,

If you are interested in joining a few friends from India and Kenya for the Avon Valley descent tomorrow (Saturday) we are leaving Perth from Beechboro at 10.30am (including picnic). You can call me on [Phone number removed by Moderator] if you want to join us and make new friends :)



Cheers,

Himanshu

I'm pretty sure, in other circumstances, other 'groups of people' could not get away with saying this.

Can i ask why you are interested in meeting other Indians? You have made the concious decision to move to a non-indian country.....

I wouldn't normally post on a topic such as this, but as an Indian, but born and bred in London I absolutely agree with this comment.

I believe it is essential to have a wide range of friends from different communities. Not only does that widen your horizon and open your eyes but it prevents social barriers.

Some say I could be a coconut, which I don't think I am, but I feel out of place going to certain parts of London that are "mini India". Also as they think I speak the language but I don't it doesn't help matters lol.. just english:rolleyes: (yes maybe I should have learnt it)

Having said that I found going to Melbourne a few times that the Asians (far eastern cultures) tend to stick together which I feel is not good either. Although it does make it easier to spot a good Chinese restaurant.. yum :D

People just don't change even after migrating.
Initially they'll say they want to meet Indians...afterwards they'll form south or north Indian unions...It never changes...
I suggest to open up your thoughts and mingle with other nationalities as well. Good for kids too...they'll get to know different culture...

I think that most races will try to stick together initially when moving anywhere for a comfort factor - look at Brits in Spain.

However I do agree that people need to mingle and mix will all types - locals and migrants. And when I say migrants I mean people from all over that have moved here. Sometimes they will understand more of what another migrant is going through than a local person.

Agree with Mohita. My whole concept of a western world has been changed. Here shops closes at 5pm!!!! and bus service ends at 7 - 9... Sunday it looks like a ghost town.. Really miss Dubai where malls and life continues till minimum 12 mid night and 24 hours eat outs...

Hahaha! Totally agree with your post...it's just quite difficult to adjust especially if you are used to the night life in the Middle east. Honestly, after work, people should have options and possibilities to chill out and have some family & friends time together (excluding pubs, which unfortunately are the only way out at nights). We miss the Middle East too, have lived both in Dubai & Riyadh!

I'm also struggling to find friends here in Perth...was easy in Melbourne & Sydney (both cities are much vibrant & lively) but not the case with Perth!

yes perth is quiet laid back compared to the eastern states..everything closes by 5...nightlife very boring, u really have to go around looking for ppl, then you meet one family who will then introduce you to some more families, thats how you build your social circle...well mohita which part of perth do u live in..

Looking to make friends

I & my wife have recently moved to Perth from Melbourne (originally from India) and looking to make friends in and around the Perth area (mainly around the CBD). Just send me an invite if you are an expat in Perth and are also looking to make friends!
