I mean the % set aside for first timer is it higher in sobf than in bto (eg. 75% allocated for bto and 90% for sobf)?

The many balance units are from a SERS development (Dawson Site C: SkyParc@Dawson) from which residents of Tanglin Halt had the chance to go for. This is the first time that balance units from this development are made available via a SOBF exercise, which is why there are really many units available.

very sad that singles under 55 can only apply for non-matured, end up its only bukit batok and bukit panjang that have hope.
but looking at the previous 2 SBF ratio, think it'll end up being 30:1 ratio and above.

wah first timer singles 5% for SBF only ah.
win liao lor. think i cancel go apply the BTO higher chance.
i feel damn stupid waste my 10$. for bukit batok its 4.4 to 1 unit now.

I'd choose Queenstown as amenities are all nearby. With Bukit Merah, there is a chance the queue number will only allow you to pick the flats at Telok Blangah or Depot Heights, which can be pretty inconvenient.

might be a good idea for you to decide after checking out the proj locations and/or after the weekend and ballot for the one with "higher" chance of getting a number.

my views on the 2 estates, as i have been aiming for them since last year.
bukit merah:
most units are in telok blangah which, even though quiet, has some amenities (ntuc, dental) and near to mt faber so you get some greenery. pretty close to vivocity if you want more stuff. downside is that the walk to mrt may be long.
other 4rm units are pretty ok, except the 7 units from Depot which is hard to get in or out. This estate has my favourite units (if only i could get it), i.e. that one unit at Havelock which is near to future havelock mrt station and within proximity to tiong bahru station yet far enough to get your own quietness. sadly, not applicable for chinese. Else CityVue units are pretty attractive too.

Queenstown:
most units are from the leftovers of Tanglin Halt SERS. mainly surrounded by HDBs (SkyVille, SkyTerrace and the plot in front is reserved for future development) so you dont get much of a view. some amenities from Dawson Place or the neighbouring HDB clusters. Houses are mostly 83 sqm too, which is really a bummer. And it is not exactly that close to the mrt station
Other units: either at Commonwealth 10; convenient but low level units are left-->roach alert! or at Ghim moh link which is placed in between Buona Vista and Dover with little amenities nearby.

if you dont mind staying near the river and the canal, it is pretty good IMO based on its location
more info on the units:
