Depend on your requirements, if you work in CBD area then surely living nearer to workplace is better. My CPF OA alone already can finish paying for the remaining mortgage so no pressure for me.

Anyway I think those mature estates are low SES, filled with poor elderly that got to work as cleaners to make ends meet. I don't know why people living in mature estates think they are high SES. My estate got Ferrari, Maserati in the car park. Don't know how come can buy BTO and own luxury cars.

Heng there is Canberra Plaza to hang out without venturing out too far. Otherwise can be very boring.

Bukit Canberra construction is progressing well.
Bukit Canberra is near Sembawang MRT station. Don't know when will it open?

Imagine , you always ask the same questions over and over again :
25 yrs ago : should I buy the house near ulu Alexandra area ..all forest lands …
15 yrs ago : should I buy the house near Punggol .. so ulu ..
5 yrs ago : should I buy BTO in Canberra , no MRT nearby ..it’s dirt cheap 1xxk only
Gov let you think it’s ulu under developed area initially , get all the lower income or young couples to populate there first ..announce some big projects or new MRT lines later, .than the rich starts to noticed … so Canberra might become the next Tampines , Punggol, Jurong east … who knows 😎
