Perth expat coffee club?

Recommended Posts

I realize that there are so many South Africans in Perth but we are new here and I was wondering if anyone would like to meet? I'd love to chat and hear about people's experiences and get some advise...

It would also be a great way of meeting parents with small children who like me are having to rack their brains on things to do with their kids everyday...

Anyway, it's just an idea. If people are genuinely interested, please let me know!

Have a good week,

Hayley

Hi Hayley!

We're still in RSA otherwise I'd be interested in getting together. How old are your children? Hope you'll get more replys from WA.

Hi Haley

I'm also still in SA (from Durban area!) but hope to be in Perth by November and will definitely contact you. I think for me it's going to be very important to make friends with other South Africans. I've got two boys who are 10 and 12. I have a few acquaintances in Perth, but otherwise don't know many people at all - it's going to be quite daunting at first.

Whereabouts in Perth are you?

Best of luck,

Mary

Hi Hayley

Me again.... would love to get together for a chat :ilikeit:

A friend (she is also a member of the forum "TMB") and I often meet for a coffee and a chat so give us a shout and we'll organise something :angry:

Cheers

Hi Hayley and Gaille

We will be in Perth on Sunday. Please let me know when you are going for that coffee, would love to join!!

It is absolute chaos in our house. They finish with the packing tomorrow and will pack the container tomorrow. Hayley, I don't know how you did your last month in SA by yourself, there are so many last minute things that my husband is helping with. Well see you soon....

Hey, I think that's very near where we plan to live - we're looking at Duncraig, Carine area, also thought about Woodvale, because I believe they have a very good school. Will definitely be in touch!

I'm near you Hayley, in the Duncraig area. I have two girls ages 7 and 4. I'd be more than happy to meet you, though I do work 3 mornings a week. Wed and Thurs mornings are great. There is a lovely storytime at the Duncraig library (cnr Warwick & Marmion) every Thursday morning, and I generally take my 4 year old. I'd be happy to meet you there and then we could go for a coffee and a chat? Please send me a PM and I will give you my contact details.

Hi all,

I'm so sorry! I'm quite slack with checking the forum...too many other things to do at this stage. Anyhow...

May i please suggest meeting for coffee next week, Monday morning at Waldecks off Wanneroo road. They have a lovely tea garden and play area for the children. Lots of scrumptious goodies to eat and good choice of coffee/tea! If that's not suitable, I'm open to suggestions...

Thanks Hayley

Thankx het jou pm gekry. :angry: Wou so graag kom maar het klaar iets aan vir daai oggend in Ellenbrook. :ph34r: Dis n wonderlike plan om so bymekaar te kom juis die rede omdat meeste van ons almal kiddies het en n mens lekker kan kuier en ons kabouters lekker kan speel. Kan ons ma's net goed doen. :blush: As jy weer iets reel asb sal ek graag dit wil bywoon met my dogtertjie van 3 Danielle.

Dankie Ursula. :)

Hi everyone,

We are coming over to Perth on the 12th Oct for a week for our LSD...but I think we might rather come to try and find schools etc during that time. Our son is 5 and our daughter 3 and I would love to meet up with other moms with kids more or less the same age as ours and it seems like you all "fit" the description! So if you decide to maybe have a coffee date during that week, I would love to try and meet up with you and hear all your stories and if you will allow me, to ask many questions!

Bye

We'll try come after school if my boys are up to it as they've both been sick these last 2 weeks.

Dan, om in die oggende ontmoet of deur die dag is maar moeilik vir almal, Miskien moet daar 'n braai of iets in een van die parke gereel word waar almal bymekaar kan kom. Dalk is daar reeds sulke dae en sal graag daarvan wil hoor

Ons is tans in Maylands , het Saterday die 11de geland . Ons hoop om 'n huis in Duncraig te kry , het aansoeke vir 'n paar huise reeds ingesit.

O ja , ons is die botha familie, Jan ,Ilse en 2 dogters Marlize(13) Bianca(9).

Hi Trevor & Hayley :D

I'm in Duncraig which is North of the River. I don't have any small children though, my son is 19 in October, which makes me 46 years young ;) hehe

Anyway, I work most week ends because I'm in real estate, but it known to be thirsty work, so a coffee now and then is always welcome. Let me know. :holy:

Marianne :)

Hi this is the first time we write to all of you living in Perth. We hope to settle in Perth in October/Nov 2007. We will be visiting Perth from 5 to 10 October 2007. We have to look for a place to stay, school for our daughter (8) and morning care for our son (4). We feel like we know so many of you that have already posted many information regarding Perth.

When will the next coffee club meeting be?

Hi MAry!

I am in Dianella as I have relatives who stay here but my husband and I are looking to go elsewhere. I believe a lost of Sa's are in CArine and Duncraig but we are also looking at aplace called Ellenbrook which is a new development right next to the forest. Would love to catch up with you when you get here. I remember my move very well. I hope all goes smoothly. Where will you be staying?

Hi everyone,

It has been a while since I was on the forum I even forgot my username! I am willing to have the SA coffee morning at my house this week if anyone is interested. We live in Ellenbrook so it may be a distance for some to travel. PM me for my address, some of you have already been so you know where I live! Feel free to bring a plate of goodies if you like. And obviously all kiddies welcome! My house is not the biggest (or tidiest) so I really need to know numbers, thanks, Maggie. I'm thinking of either Tuesday (9 Oct) or Wednesday (10 Oct). Whatever suits.
