District 9 is considered the "central area" or downtown where Orchard Road and shopping malls are concentrated. The brand new Ardmore Park 4+1 2900 sq. ft, $10,000 - $16,000 attracts a lot of interest from expatriate wives as the upscale condo is a 3-minute walk to the American Club and is located in the downtown area.
The Chatsworth School, Overseas Family School and the International Singapore School are located in the downtown
Districts 10, 11 and 21 and 25 (American School there) are popular Caucasian enclave areas as most international schools are there. Gallop Gables, a hot Caucasian enclave and numerous condos near Holland Village which is a meeting place for expatriates, are located in District 10. District 11 have many houses and condos too and the Dutch/German School and the Canadian School (secondary level classes) is located there. The Canadian School (elementary level), United World College, Tanglin Trust, Dover Preparatory School is located in District 21.
District 15 and 16 is East Singapore. It has numerous sea facing condos. Some of the waterfront condos, 5-min drive to Suntec City, like Pebble Bay & Costa Rhu are extremely popular with expatriates who want the sea, sun and parks and have no school-going children studying in Districts 9, 10 and 11.
Pebble Bay & Costa Rhu condos are around 45 minutes by school bus to the United World College in District 21 and to the American School. Most expatriate mothers will not want to live further up North East Singapore than these two condos.
District 20. The new French School is located there. The new Australian School will be relocated there in the near future.
District 21 is where the United World College, Tanglin Trust, Dover Preparatory School, INSEAD are located. The Australian School is in District 10 on the fringe of District 21 but it will relocate to District 20 in the near future.
District 25 is of interest only to expatriate families who want to live next door to the American School. See: Near American School housing.
Bungalows with pool are in great demand by Caucasian expatriates. As at September 6 2001, good quality bungalows of at least 15,000 sq. feet of land, with inground pools are in great demand and are located in Districts 9, 10 and 11. Demand exceeds supply.
Those around Districts 9 and 10 rent from $15,000 - $30,000 per month. If you find a good bungalow of 15,000 sq. ft and 6-bedrooms and an above ground pool e.g. in Namly Gardens, at a rent of $12,000, do be decisive as there are few of such sizes available. Black and white bungalows rent from $7,000 in suburban areas to $20,000 (2-storey with maybe 40,000 sq. ft of land) in areas closer to downtown.
The bungalows are in such great demand that those older ones with pool and next to cemetery land renting around $10,000 are snapped up fast. The decision maker spouse has to be decisive and prompt as time is of the essence if a really good bungalow in a good class bungalow area is found. See Will the Chief Executive yield to domestic pressure? The answer was no.
When the Chief Executive was offered the house at his rent as the Landlady was in favour of his wife and was persuaded by the realtors to take a lower rent, he could not respond fast enough. See The early bird catches the worm.
A new penthouse in a condo in District 9 rents from $15,000 - $30,000 and may be an alternative to bungalows with pool. You will not need to maintain the garden and the pool.
Rents are generally much lower in areas other than those in Districts 9, 10, 11, 15 and 25. Many expatriates have found inexpensive new 3-bedroom condos in Districts 5, 16, 17, 20, 26 at less than $2,000 fully furnished as these areas are not favoured by Caucasians. Huge new 6-bedroom Kew bungalows with pool, in District 15 rent around $10,000 - $15,000 as supply is limited.
Cluster houses share a communal pool and these may be alternatives to condos. Rent for cluster townhouses vary from $3,000 (e.g. D'Manor) - $10,000 (e.g. The Compass At Chancery), cluster bungalows from $10,000 - $15,000 (e.g. Tudor 10),
The Housing & Development Board (HDB) apartments are renting from $700 for a 2-bedroom to $1,500 for bigger ones, but they must be officially approved unless you want to take the risk of renting a "locked one room" apartment.
"Locked one room" refers to the fact that the Owner "lives" in one locked room as unapproved HDB apartments are not permitted to be rented entirely.
A HDB room may rent for $400 per month.
There are very few officially approved HDB apartments for rent as permission is given only for special reasons such as the Owner working overseas. Around 80% of the Singaporeans are reported to reside in HDB apartments which are defined as "public housing".
Public v. private housing. The overwhelming majority of expatriates live in "private housing" as rentals have had dropped much, especially in suburban condos with rentals around $1,000 - $1,500 for a 2-bedroom fully furnished.
There is really no need to live near the subway as the buses come regularly at around a 10-15 minute interval and Singapore is such a small country.
|The Singapore subway
called the MRT (Mass Rapid Transport). A new above-ground mass transport, called the
LRT (Light Rail Transport) now connects the Bukit Panjang subdivision to the Chua Chu Kang
For the Americans studying in the American School, the Marsiling subway is around a 8-minute walk to the American School in Woodlands, North Singapore. The subway ride from Marsiling to Orchard subway is around 30 minutes. The car ride takes around 15 minutes to Orchard Road if there is no traffic jam.
Hence many spouses who work in Suntec City do not look forward to living in relatively "isolated" Woodlands, North Singapore where the American School is. They prefer Districts 9, 10 and 11 which are in between the school and downtown. American wives who are socially active dislike living too far from the downtown where the American Club and the centre of action is.
Suntec City, Raffles Place and Shenton Way are the financial and office districts providing employment for most expatriates in the financial and information technology fields.
Suntec City is closest to the City Hall subway. The Conrad International, Ritz Carlton, Marina Shopping Mall, Suntec City Mall, Westin Stamford and Westin Plaza are nearby.
|Raffles Place financial
district is closest to the Raffles Place subway. Shenton Way is a
short walk away. Boat Quay pubs and cafes and the mouth of the Singapore River are
The Emerald Hill heritage shophomes, Chatsworth International School are a short 5-minute walk to the Somerset subway. The Centrepoint shopping mall, Takashimaya Shopping Centre, Mandarin Hotel, HMV in the Heeren, Orchard Road supermarkets, cafes and shops are very near.
The Cairnhill Road heritage shophomes, the Compass at Chancery cluster houses are nearer to the Newton subway and Novena subway respectively.
Most popular expatriate condos are located the Orchard
subway. Scotts Road, Paterson Road where the Oversea Family
School and International Singapore School are located, Borders bookstore,
Starbucks and Planet Hollywood as well as more shopping malls are attractions. The
Singapore Marriott Hotel is located nearby.
The Canadian Schools, United World College, Tanglin
Trust and the Dover Preparatory School are not within walking distance to the
subway but there are buses to the Clementi subway.

Chihuahua biting tail and generalised skin infections.
It was given to new
owner free of charge. It
attacked its own tail
all the time, as if obsessed with trying to get rid of something there.
Such cases need prompt veterinary attention as the tail will rot and become
Rat bait poisoning?
