HAVE YOU HAD A LOOK AT WWW.SINGAPOREEXPATS.COM? EVERYWHERE IN SINGAPORE IS NICE AND EVERYWHERE WILL HAVE 7 AND 8 YEARS OLD KIDS.

AND IF YOU WILL LOOK ON THE LEFT SIDE OF YOUR KEYBOARD, YOU WILL SEE A KEY THAT SAYS "CAPS LOCK". I SUGGEST YOU UNLOCK IT AS TYPING IN ALL CAPS IN A FORUM IS CONSIDERED RUDE AND/OR SHOUTING.

OR IS THAT WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO!?! :o

Somerville Park

Post by thirdeagle » Mon, 28 Jun 2010 2:06 am

I think that budget would get you an upper maisonette in Somerville Park - I used to live in one. Somerville Park has townhouses, maisonettes and highrises. The grounds are fairly large and green. Big pool, tennis courts, couple of playgrounds, and lots of space to walk/run around, ride skateboard, bicycle without getting out onto the streets. We found it very easy for the kids to socialize. There are also sometimes classes in the function room - ballet, kids art and such..

Thank you so much for the reply, I will have a look at Somerville Park, it sounds just the place for children. Many thanks again.

Donna - did you end up in Somerville? We just got back from a house hunting trip and think we found a place to rent there. We will be moving over in June. If you rented there, I would love to know how you like it. If not, where are you living? We are interested in a smiliar housing situation to what you described. Many thanks!
