There are other terraces like 24 x 75 that is a good size to have. Space is important, always buy the biggest you can reasonably afford
if you are going to get a loan. Don't over stretch but this is for scalability reasons if all you are buying is just one and its for own stay,
you might as well get the largest possible if you intend to bring in family. If not, then something smaller but not too small that you would
want/need/have to upgrade after a couple of years.
I am just helping people who have the "yuan" to be helped.
Those who don't will just dismiss or won't even bother to read.
Those who read may not understand and those who understand
may not see it our way.
I still have 3-4 people i regard as very close to my heart that have never
visited Johore before. Despite my best efforts, they never even came to
do shopping. No matter what you do, there will always be someone out there
who thinks its not possible, hidden agenda, etc. I guess that the conventional ideas
of being number 1, no free lunch are too deeply ingrained in us these days.
We must understand that the west are just begining to rediscover the meaning of altruism.
In the end though, we can only do so much sometimes. There are those you can help,
there are some you cannot help, one has to accept that.
Just like just now, i asked my wife to pass some money to an uncle cleaning
the tables when i was back in SG. Wife refused as she fears embarrassement in
case the uncle refuses. I have no such issue and passed it to him and told the uncle gently,
its for his coffee.
I then forget about the whole thing and did not look at him again as i did not want to embarrass
what documents required to open a such bank account in Johor Malaysia and which bank it is for Singaporean? Thanks.
Just bought a condo in Bukit indah. Transfer the first money from Singapore bank to their banks. The exchange rate is only about 2.409 and 30$ per transfer last week against money exchange 2.439 at that time.
Hi bro wuji,

i feel the journey quite long sia.. are u staying in HH all the while and work in sg?..
i google map and that is 38km apart from HH to my work place..

To be frank, I also have big reservations about the journey times if living in JB and working fulltime in SIN, especially if one have to work long hours (as most PMETs may increasingly attest to these days...).
So personally, I dont see it as an viable option except as a weekend home, or for someone who has very flexible working hours (sales? own towkay?, etc), or semi-retired, or retired.
Otherwise, it can be an incrementally draining experience to drive day in day out, etc... even now, from our place in east coast to jurong, having to go through traffic is already pretty tiring and generally SIN traffic pace can be considered pretty decent...
Anyway, for those who can make the transitions well, more power to you!
Just some musings on another cold wet day in SIN...
You can see some updates of yesterday's pre-sales opening from this link http://jbcool.com/2011/12/johor-premium-outlets/
So while the journey may be shorter but the time taken may be longer ...and the temper hotter
I am not trying to pour 'cold water' ...just trying to be practical ....and realistic
Get Real !
From my home in East Coast to HH including immigration clearance, if I travelled during non peak hour.. I can reach HH around 45-50min. I agreed it is a long journey if compute daily and expensive if you travel by Tuas everyday... However if you are determined to accept that, it is definitely possible considered so many folks have done it..
I have a friend who collected houses as hobbies... not just for investment or rental.. just like people who collect expensive watches or cars.. it is the same.. I plan to retire from Singapore in a few year times (It is not that I have reached my retirement age, but I don't believe in total retirement and I wish I can find some liked minded friends to do some business in Malaysia at our own time.. Maybe a technology startup or something that can give me more flexible time..).. I also think looking for a new life only after total retirement(and kids all grown up) might be a bit too late.. Living in JB is a start of a new journey or transition.. Like Wuyi said, after living in JB, maybe you will have the appetite of living in other beautiful countries in the world.. and you will realise the world is not just Singapore.. The world is hugh and beautiful..
