Kampong Glam, the Edgy New Alternative Heart of Singapore

Kampong Glam, the Edgy New Alternative Heart of Singapore

JUST ABOUT EVERY DAY NOW I GET AN INVITE TO JOIN A SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORK. 2011 seems to be the year of social media, and the proliferation of social networks is truly mindboggling. I have read on Smedio that it took radio 38 years to attract its first 50 million users, and TV 13 years to build up an audience of the same size. Facebook, on the other hand, reached that critical mass in just six months. The king or queen of the social media, Facebook now has 34 million users in India, and that number is growing all the time. It is almost like a little Internet in itself, with its own economy and ecosystem. In some places, you are not a real person anymore unless you have a Facebook page.

It is certainly a great place to go if you want to make new friends, consolidate your existing links, or look up old relationships. If you have a smartphone you should have a look at Foursquare, which allows you to find likeminded people in realspace (for example, a cafe, a train), realtime (ie now), all around you. do whatever the both of you want to do. It is the closest thing to a universal Gaydar that I have yet encountered, a Gaydar for straights (if only I had the guts to use it that way!) More on Foursquare later, because I am sure it is a revolution in the making!
Anyway, today I received two invitations, from two different people, to join them on Google +. For those who don't know, Google + is Google's answer to Facebook, and a somewhat belated effort to enter the social media race. Given Facebook's huge lead and user base, some might say this is a futile venture. Nonetheless, Google has spent a lot of time and resources investigating the science of friendship and relationships. One of its innovations is the idea of "circles", and the recognition that not all of your "friends" are in fact your friends. On Google +, you can sort your contacts into groups or circles with labels like "relations", "work colleagues", and of course "close friends". That is a good step forward, because I personally found it difficult publishing updates on Facebook which appealed to all of my readers. On Google +, your old girlfriends never need to meet your new girlfriends. And your boss doesn't have to know you are out drinking the night before a big meeting or the start of an important project!
If you would like an invitation to join, send me an email or coderot@gmail.com. I am waiting to hear from you!

WAYN: A New Place to Make Friends

I got an email from a guy called Poolidurai Poolipandi today inviting me to join him on WAYN, a social media site. WAYN stands for "Where Are You Now?", and (at last count) claims to have about 18 million members. Specifically, it promotes itself as a place where you can "share your Travel and Lifestyle Interests and meet other people who have things in common with you." As I am ever on the look out for new social media sites, I took Poolidurai Poolipandi up on his offer. As I joined up, it was revealed that I already had nine friends on WAYN... including a certain U.Bhandari, a Nepali I used to work with in Tokyo, and a girl I went to college with in Australia. It is a small world after all, and it is funny how your contacts can follow you through your life now (around the world), courtesy of information technology!
A commentator more on their game than me has remarked: "Chennai dating girls are excellent to date with.They are very soft but very intelligent. They look very pretty and stylish. They love candle light dinners with their lovers. They are true lovers and give unforgettable company to their dates." Of course, Chennai can be a tough place to go on a date, what with all the aunties and police cruising for (unmarried) couples. Sex and the City it ain't, according to what I have heard at least. Sometimes even admiring the sunset with your dear on the beach can land you in trouble with the law. I can only imagine what dating is like out in the hinterlands of Tamil Nadu and out in the remote parts of Sri Lanka. However, I do know that the Internet is huge in India (and Sri Lanka) and rolling out further every day; at any time there are millions of Tamils online, hooking up. If you want to hook up with Tamils anywhere in the world online away from the leers and prying eyes of the public space, this webpage can help you. If you do want to hook up offline, however, this guide will try to help as well. And at least your antics won't make it to the video markets of Myanmar or Thailand!

THERE ARE PERHAPS HUNDREDS OF CHATROOMS ONLINE TARGETTED AT TAMILS, MOST OF THEM WITH FAR MORE MEN ONLINE THAN WOMEN. They come and go every day, and some of them are better than others. Today (being June 11, 2009) I found a new website and portal for global Tamils which looked particularly enticing -- it is Meet Tamil Dot Com. It might look enticing, but to get to the meat you have to navigate a series of annoying, intrusive pop up ads. I went there with the intention of finding any Tamil girls from Qatar, Canada, Germany, France, Japan, or the UAE. As usual I found plenty of men, particularly from the UAE. Go to the shoutbox and you will see what I mean. Nive says: "I am gal chat with me."

Adi Dravidar refers to the Dalits community of Tamil Nadu and beyond, which numbers nearly 10 million souls according to the Joshua Project. "We Adidravidars are the original natives or indigenous people of Dravida land," writes one A.S Jeevarathinam in an article on the site. "Our forefathers were proud inhabitants of our country from the beginning of time. Our community name was coined by Tamil social activist Periyar Ramasami. Our castes include Paraiyar, Chakkili or Arunthathiyar, most of whom live in south India and speak one of the south Indian languages..."

Dating Direct: UK's Number One Site for Singles!
Picture courtesy Dating Direct I know this is not strictly speaking Indian or Tamil. But, nonetheless, many Tamils live in the United Kingdom, alongside many Gujaratis, Pakistanis, and other subContinentals! You can access DatingDirect anywhere (docomo), anytime (itsudemo) using your mobile. According to The Hindu news service: "About a decade ago, at the age of 33, when Darren Richards thought that the Internet could be the perfect way of meeting other singletons in his area, in the UK, he was in for a disappointment. His search for an online agency to join led him only to companies in the US. 'Even worse, none of the sites seemed to take the idea of meeting a new partner online seriously, encouraging members to use silly nicknames such as Sexy Babe and Hot Pants,' recounts Rachel Bridge in one of the chapters included in How I Made It: 40 successful entrepreneurs reveal all (www.vivagroupindia.com).
"A frustrated Richards thought that he couldn't be the only person who wanted to use the Internet to find a serious date. And that resulted in a blueprint for a British online dating service.
"The first few website developers he approached told him it could not be done, but he eventually found someone able and willing to do the job. Richards gave the designer a 20 per cent stake in the company in return for creating a new interactive website, and it was launched in 1999 at a cost of 2,500 pounds. Within three months it had 40,000 members..." Now there are more than five million.

Representing the men, Beatheheat (34) says: "To put it short humour is my middle name and i love interactive women. Fast machines and dancing is my life. I love going to night clubs and dancing latin american styles..."

Kaadal: Meet New Tamil Friends.
There are plenty of Tamils here looking for friendship, 2101 online the last time I dropped by (then again, maybe "friendship" is just a euphemism for "love"? Tamils love their euphemisms, it seems to me. Maybe it comes from living in a conservative society?) One recent poster, thanam444 from Malaysia, divorced, seemed to confirm my suspicions (that, on this site, friendship equals love): "yes im (l)ooking for fr(i)en(d)ship which can give me moral support." She added: "i looking for good heart , caring , lovable person,who can understand me. im not ask anything from u . only a ship with full of love frendship."
If you are sailing on a ship full of love friendship, perhaps you will reach your harbour at Kaadal.

WHERE CAN YOU FREAK OUT IN CHENNAI (OR FOR THAT MATTER, SINGAPORE OR TAMIL KWA ZULU). Stickman, that famous expat blogger of the South-East Asian scene, quotes a reader named Harry who says: "For the travellers that prefer the company of dusky maidens, the Indian community of Malaysia is around 10% of the population. Indian girls have a 'Western' facial appearance but I think the allure of darker skin coupled with nice big eyes, long black hair and a wide grin serves to speed up the heartbeat. I can understand why Western men become attracted to Indian girls as they tend to have an innocent and sweet playful approach to conversation. The key to forming a lasting relationship with an Indian girl lies in the level of her usually strict family upbringing and religious background. As in Thailand, an Indian family is very close knit, and a western boyfriend will eventually be accepted into that family providing his intentions appear to be honourable. It's not an easy task to break down this cultural barrier. Particularly so if the girl's family are Hindu in the strictest sense as it's the parents responsibility to arrange marriages without courtship! However, it's my experience that the Indian people of Malaysia are the friendliest of all ethnic groups and they are certainly easy to talk to and reason with..." It is worth noting that Harry has a wife of Malaysian Indian extraction, so he knows what he is talking about.

INDIA'S GAY AND LESBIAN PEOPLE ARE COMING OUT OF THE SHADOWS IN INCREASING NUMBERS. Last year (2008) Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore held their first ever gay pride parades, with about 900 people marching in each city while a largely supportive crowd looked on. I got this from the Globe and Mail newspaper from Toronto, Canada. The Globe and Mail went on to report: "A new lesbian support hot-line opened by a Chennai gay group received 45 calls the first day they turned on their phone, a few months back -- although they were not meant to open for another 10 days. Many were from young women who had recently found a name for their gay identity, but were being forced into marriages by their parents..."
