When colleagues ask where you stay and if it's a condo, you will gain more respect. Face is very important here. Moreover it is a lot safer to stay in a condo and you get to use the swimming pool and gym. You can also invite colleagues and friends over for BBQ. Life will so much better living in a condo. Just ask around your fellow expat friends. You just spend a bit more every month and it's a whole different lifestyle you get to enjoy. Condos next to MRT stations will be best as it takes you a short while to travel and allows you to have more sleep.
Condo rental is so cheap and affordable, and it is getting even lower and lower every month. If you call any property agent now, they will share with you how much the rental and property price had gone down recent years. There are so many new, nice and vacant condo to choose, many landlords are really desperate after keeping it vacant for months. You will be spoilt with choices, try to get short term rental contract, as rental market is getting bad to worst till next year.
