It's unfortunate then because Uber operates with worse business ethics than the industry they're trying to replace:

We're sticking with public transport, thank you very much! Ha..! It is an absolute pleasure to go by public transport once you've experienced Australian's transport system. Routes, times and fees are a disgrace.

A quick update here. Research seems to be progressing well. I am finding . to be extremely handy and comprehensive. Gumtree looks fairly alright but looks slightly dodgy. I've shortlisted a few choice listings on .. My husband will stay in a hostel for 2 weeks or so and hopefully by then, sort out the accomodation.

Good plan, public transport is very good here. When looking for accommodation don't forget that the bus system is extensive and (generally) efficient. It's not always necessary to be close to the MRT, also look at the bus routes.
