Adios, Gweilo Ghetto!

Pin It

After having lived on or around Robinson Road since early 1996 (other than the 6 months in Singapore and subsequent 3 months holed up in the Conrad HK), I have finally made the move out of Western Mid-Levels.

I'm now very happily based on Happy Valley (no pun intended), on Sing Woo Road just steps from brown. I'm on a high floor with lots of windows for a bright living space (and way too much afternoon sun), and a combined master bedroom + study that is almost the same size as my living/dining space.

Unlike Robinson Road - which was filled with property agents and very few other types of retail outlets/restaurants - HV is full of neighborhood restaurants and shops. It will take me quite a while to try them all out, and I look forward to this challenge. I'll be sure to invite you all to my housewarming after I'm done settling into the place.

My dream property on Sentosa...

Pin It

...well not quite. But I did partner up with a friend and put in a bid on a large, 3-bedroom unit at this ocean front development on Sentosa Island in Singapore. We were lucky enough to secure a good unit during the pre-launch of the project, and quite pleased with the overall layout. This is the first time I'm actually putting money to work in properties, but I'm pretty excited as I think the market sentiment is good. Given that we were allocated an attractive unit (7th floor, just below the duplex penthouse) and got in early enough at a reasonable price, we should be sitting pretty on this investment.
