there are parks all over singapore - heck I'm currently living in dhoby ghaut and there are two around here (Mt emily and fort canning).

I'm looking to move out too and was wondering how much of a commute I could take after getting used to strolling to work...

From what I figure: Just get a place within 5-7 min walking from the MRT - preferably one which goes directly to your office with no changing trains and you'll be fine! :)

Whats happened to the 36 bus route ?

They use to be all the new shiney buses, with the LED lite on the front proudly showing it was the 36 bus.

But recently, I have seen them being replaced by the older style buses. Also, they appear to be somewhat less frequent.

Is this because of the recession ??

Hi, the east coast is indeed a good place to stay and you are right getting on the MRT (Trains) would be a hassle as it would require you to take a public bus or a taxi to the nearest MRT station which would add another 20-30 mins to your travel time to the city.

However if you don't mind condos along the fringe of East Coast area than there are places such as Kembangan, Bedok and Tampines where access to the MRT is easy. Another area where there is the sun, beach and all that you like AND the MRT is Pasir Ris.
