    Brand new to HK!

    Hi,
    My wifre, 2 year old son and I just arrived in HK for one year (short I know) work assignment from my company. We are from New York and ar e living in Hillsborough Ct in the midlevels.

    We know absolutely no one here so I just wanted to introduce ourselves as I have been following these forums for awhile prior to our move.
    We would love to meet anyone out there!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to HK Lauren!

    There are a number of Mid-Levels moms on the boards!

    There's also a playgroup in Tregunter too.

    More info here:

    Also new to Hong Kong

    Hi

    We are also new here to Hong Kong on a 9 mth contract. Living in Parkview with our 6 month old. She may be a little young for your young child to play with though.

    Firstly Welcome to HK. I know it can take quite a while to settle into HK and can feel a bit lonely at times - or it was for me when I arrived and then when I had my son and all my friends didn't have babies I felt quite cut off for a while.

    There is a really good mum and baby group which meets on a Thursday at the Matilda hostiptal on the peek.

    Mum and Baby is at about 10am, Mum and toddler is at 3pm and its run by a wonderful lady called Yvonne.

    The Rumpus Rooms is a mother and baby/toddler play group facility in Central (link on this page) Mums meet other mums and chat while the babies play.

    HKPPA has a mum and toddler group too - I don't have the details but I am sure Rani can provide them.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if the Matilda groups are still going on. Will have to ask Yvonne.

    Here's the info on the HKPPA. Also there's the Union Church Playgroup and St John's.

    Almost forgot, the AWA have playgroups too! . More info on their website.

    Local..be glad to be of help.

    Dear Lauren,

    Wellcome to HK. Hope you have started to settle in. I have been living in HK for 9 years.

    My husband is local and he got "Huge" families and relatives here. I am never lonely or actually "left alone"! HAHAHAHA!

    The great part is, I can get any information for anything happening in HK, from flats (when we bought ours) to shoppings and many more.

    If you need any help, like getting around HK, please email me anytime. Or post your threads here. I came in quite regularly. All the best!

    EMAIL ADD: [email protected]
