Aug 9, 2000.
First of all, congratulations for a great Internet site which has
already been of great help for me. I am a (European) who is relocating to
Singapore September 1 this year.
I look for at least 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms, kitchen, living room and
maybe another room. I would also love to have a balcony and live in a
quiet and green area of town.
I have visited a friend who lives in a walk-up, some kind of an old
warehouse or photo studio - one big room. This was quite nice.
Then I came across your site and that inspired me a lot. Particularly,
the section with
gave some ideas:
My friends have also told me that those kind of homes would suit me well
being a "marketing and advertising person". This would leave much more
room for creativity and personal style than the modern living houses,
The latter ones might be suitable for me but I just have a feeling that
the above ones are much more a picture of the true Singaporean heritage.
I am therefore preferably looking for a charming place like the ones

to the center. I will be working in Suntec City I would like to have
some greenery around and it most be quiet - at least not noisy.
I hope this gives you an initial idea and maybe we can work together to
focus my requirements.
Do you have photos that you can email to me of some of the options? I very
much appreciate your help in advance. Thanks! Any other sources that you

crawl the Internet in search of Web pages. Basically these spiders follow
links to travel from URL to URL. When they visit your Web site, the robot
indexes (or records) the text of your page or pages (if it is a deep
crawling spider) and stores it in the search engine's index. Later, when a
user enters a search query at the search engine's Web site, the search
