I live near my office in tampines and really like it since travelling time is less than 15 minutes and if ever i need to go to town, there are buses and the MRT which take just about half an hour... yes cabs too...abbby wrote:Ang Mo Kio is quite a boring estate..I wld opt for Toa Payoh anytime for the amenities, easy access to highways and convenience. And it's closer to the city.

I am moving from Australia in June to start a job in Ang Mo Kio (or thereabouts) which, I understand, is neither the most happening 'hood in SG, nor the most central.
At 33, single and moving for career and life experience, I am to-ing and fro-ing over whether to live close to work (I'll be expected to do some long, late hours) or somewhere more central to the life I'll be leading away from the office ... where I can walk to bars, restaurants, movies etc.
I have been recommended the River Valley/Orchard/Chinatown/Downtown areas to look at condos. Mind, a quick squiz at a map confirms these would be great from a lifestyle point of view.
Equally, I was laughed at when I suggested that might involve a bit of a difficult interchange of MRT/bus etc ... and promptly told that it's common to cab to/from work every day over that kind of distance.
The generosity of the experienced would be appreciated!
