Unregistered pools in condo vary. alternatively, you can use public swimming complex.

not too sure about public squash facility. some condo has them so you might want to take that into account when you source for your apartment.

Unregistered Kelvin,

1. Which passport do you hold?
2. Are you parents Singaporean or Asian? If so, which country do they belong to?

kelvinfrog Oh, I meant public sqaush court in my previous post.

kelvinfrog Oh cool, I hope the rent will go even lower by next year so that I can get a good price for rent. So I enjoy swimming and I want to ask if the pool at the private condo is big enough for real swimmer doing laps? or more like bring your kids to have a good time kind of pool? Also, how about the squash facility in SG? do they have decent public courts I can use?

Credit crunch
Companies that over invest in hype

Companies that go into buying spree and over invest in hype like logistics and commodity will face issues. Part of corporate governance where only one person decides while rest of board has no skillset to validate

Jurong aromatics is one. The other that is in postal and now doing big in logistic expansion. I guess the people that already leave will say it is the person who takeover that create problem

Unregistered_101 Lol very true, just get to know some people staying there and can keep quoting their unit number to get in.

Sometimes I use the facilities of a apartment I rented out as well, technically its frowned upon by the management since both me and my tenant uses but no one really cares. So I get rental and use of the facilities at the same time.

Just live your life appropriately. Don't deprive yourself of any enjoyments (you are working overseas after all) but make sure not to excessively indulge. If you like a comfortable living (gym/swimming etc) within the means by all means go for a condo if spending that few hundred more can be considered, I would say in Singapore entertainment can be the major cost i.e drinking dining etc so just watch out on these areas.

Do an expense tracker and you can monitor your cost accordingly.

Face is not everything in Asian culture.

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.
