Where to live? - young professional on the move

Post by Alex85 » Thu, 17 Dec 2009 5:00 am

Hi there, I am relocating to Singapore in early 2010 and really need some assistance in finding the right area to live. I'm am looking to meet similar young proffessional expats. I will be working in Raffels Place and have heard that areas such as Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, CHinatown are convenient and offer a lot in terms of lifestyle an meeting similar aged people. Is this where is should be looking and if so are there any particular expat buildings I should be looking at. My budget is flexible currently looking at S$3000-$4000 for a 1 bedroom. Thankyou in advance for any assistance advice you may have. Alex

Geylang . . . more professionals than you can poke a stick (or something else) at.

It is a good idea to live in another country and surround yourself with other foreigners . . . the lines are clearly segregated . . . it is Us and Them . . .

Be wiser. Save your money while you're young - and while other fella youngsters spend their money like water.

I.e. stay at a cheaper place (HDB or condo) in the suburbs. What's the point of having an expensive place near the city when you're not gonna be spending much time at home anyways?

yup true...man ,

even a local like me here. weekdays working only at night can enjoy staying at home.
weekend wise will be going to swimming and going out.
yup sometimes do stay at home relax.

and ya not to forget hoildays and on leave.

but once we are working , we do have less time at home.
