Most Singaporeans really frog in a well. In some countries some people can commute 1-2 hours one way to/fro work.

The only time when Singapore is more spacious is during first 2 days of Chinese New Year. The 1 million FTs and Malaysians returning home for holidays really makes a difference to personal space enjoyment.
And also locals going aboard for holidays...

Anyway regarding the spacious part, not so. The neighbourhood may be but not transport. I still rmb last year CNY when I was taking the MRT, I thought I was a tourist in overseas.

Slumberra During Chinese New Year

And also locals going aboard for holidays...

Slumberra is really a ghost town on the first day of Chinese New Year! Today I spotted more Banglas than residents.

A little update about Slumberra.

Canberra MRT Station probably 40% completed.

Both Eastlink I and Eastlink II roof completed. 11 floors. Eastlink I exterior walls half painted and Canberra Plaza 50% completed. Eastlink II exterior walls painting 90% completed. I think can TOP in 6 months time.

Everything is moving very fast. Once Canberra MRT Station opens in 2019 it will change the game dramatically. If within 500m of walking to MRT Station is still ok for uncle like me. If more than that a bit tired haha. Eastlink I residents will be the closest to MRT Station. Less than 100m.

Dropped by Yislum and I must say amenities confirm better than Slumberra with the new Northpoint City Mall. Today its F&B shops are doing a roaring business. North Park Residences will also TOP 2018.

Jus to share with you guys or perhaps u all already know e details well for NSE.
Take a close look at the entry and exist point. Canberra is jus 3 mins away from the expressway..... with the bonus of the MRT around, Sembawang development is definitely getting better. I should say Singapore development instead. So everyone HUAT YA!!!

More HDB? All the area should be residential except for 2 plots for schools.

Like a holiday resort. So peaceful. Look out of the window. Not a single soul.
