Then she should by her own house and do what she wants .. ah, by the way, atleast here, unlike a lot of cases in US, where the landlords refused to sell houses to specific races, Singapore residents don't have so much of 'racial equality .. ' when selling .. And, don't forget, the LL refusing to rent to Indian MAYBE AN INDIAN WHO WANTS HIS HOUSE TO BE SPICK AND SPAN WITH NO GREASE/OIL STAINS IN THE KITCHEN...
This is Asia, and show me one country where atleast a bit of race preference is not obvious .. ah come on ..
If I was the landlord, I would say "Well, black american or white american .. " no, I would never say it, but that is what I will hear anywhere in Asia .. ah, by the way, i could go on about my experience in INDIA .. but, hey, I know you gonna slaughter me ..
Now before you start spilling your guts out .. I am sorry if I riled you and the poor nice lady from US. A million apologies ..

PS: Poodlek, if you live in Keppel Bay, you can find a house, where the poster can buy it outright, possibly ?? so there is no need to fret over any issue like renting ??
