Thoughts Sans Boundaries

Moving week

Posted in home@sg by Aditya Moorthy on July 16, 2007

Finally we got the house registered that me and my brother bought in the NE of Singapore. It was quite a nice feeling that you own a house though both of us look at it more like a launching pad for our wild dreams – dreams of traveling around the world in a bicycle. But more of it later.

The house or rather the apartment is part of what is known in Singapore as Executive Condominium which is condo’s built by the government housing development board. Foreigners are not eligible to buy it new and and they can only buy it after the first 5 years of occupancy. We found a decent unit in the north east of Singapore and it comes with a common swimming pool, gymnasium and a tennis court. The neighbourhoood is calm, although the residents warn us that there is quite a bit of traffic jam during the peak hours. The MRT (which is the train system in Singapore for commuting) is about 10 minutes walk from the unit and it takes me a 25 minute train ride to reach my office. We have started packing stuff and should be moving in within the end of this week. Tons of work are still pending there, patch up the nail holes in the wall, painting etc. But they should all be done in the next 2-3 weeks.

I will try to post some pictures of the house before renovation.
