    Next to the prison, this must be the ugliest building in Singapore.

    But that's not where I'm heading, on the other side of the road is a row of shop houses.

    The shop houses have a variety of businesses, a few restaurants, a corner grocery store (amazingly, no 7-11) and also my final destination for the afternoon.
    Bernie's Bar & Restaurant.

    . . . I know where you live!! Had friends just across the road . . . the row-houses you took a photo of.

    Loved Singapore . . . every bit of the six years there . . . always intended to go back
    , have PR so no problem, but I must also admit that KL is a nice place to live . . . and it has hinterland.

    We always lived in the inner west - Bukit Timah, more trees and hills . . .

    Good for you for enjoying it, as you should living in a nice place

    I must say, I like Singapore and have spent a lot of time there over the years traditionally using it as my entry and exit point in and out of Asia.

    The cleanliness, organization, lack of crime, beautiful women, friendly people and great food make it a joy to visit.

    Some people find it boring but I figure they just don't put in the effort to get around the place and check it out, some also complain that its a police state but if you don't drop shite everywhere and graffiti cars you ain't got a problem. Australia needs to copy there policing system and wipe out some of our social problems especially regarding our young people.

    I now will enter Asia through KL as the government is in the process of knocking down my favorite gaff which was called the " 7th story hotel " near Boogis St. A fantastic place destined to become another MRT station, a real shame as it was built in the 40's and is one of the last remaining original hotels in Singapore.

    Any way mate, I figure your a lucky guy living there and good luck to you, nice pictures by the way.

    Cheers

    nice condo Tizme.

    I have often thought about buying one of those but the cost is a bit prohibitive for a large-ish family like mine.
    You get a lot more space for your buck living in an HDB flat, although ofcourse the outside looks crap and there is no pool etc. Still, never say never.

    ^ But the chances of being within easy reach of public transport is greater if you live in an HDB.
    Our condo was miles away from decent public transport = taxis, still cheap and clean and honest

    Being settled in the condo, I couldn't be arsed moving at the moment. I think its Newton's first law. (An object at rest tends to stay at rest)

    There's a shuttle bus that stops outside the condo gate that will drop me at my office in less than 15 minutes. It runs every half hour (more frequently during peak hours) from before I wake up until 9pm every night. Outside those times there's the SBS bus at the bottom of the street or a taxi.

    The place I'm in now has only 1 bedroom and I'm planning on moving the family here eventually so I'll need to move at some stage. Also my office will move into Changi business park in the next couple of years so it wont be so convienient commute wise from here. We'll probably go into a HDB then.

    I did look at HDBs before I took this place but the only ones available out here were far too big for just one person.

    This thread's over 2 years old now. I moved out of the condo in January this year and now live in a HDB in the heartlands of Bedok.

    Here's a few of my new neighbourhood.
