American IN Singapore from Nov 3: Dec 1 - Need Place to Stay

Post by YankStuckinSuiss » Wed, 19 Oct 2011 5:10 pm

Anyone want to house a nice quiet American for a month for a modest fee (to be discussed in private)? I have myself and two bags. I'm coming to Singapore to look for work. I only require a quite place to sleep, shower, ete.

I'm a 35 year old male... quiet IT professional. I speak basic Mandarin (at about the level of a 4 or 5 year old), English is my mother tongue.

It is not legal for anyone to rent you accommodation without a valid residency permit. Your choices are hotels, hostels, and Serviced Apartments.

What you want would need to be done under the table and of course, we cannot endorse that idea.

I see...thanks. Sorry I wasn't ware you could not stay with anyone. I knew it was illegal to formally rent an apartment in your name without residency. I figured subleasing under someone else would be okay...guess not.
