If you wait until after 10 am then take a taxi, it will deliver you at Suntec for less than S$ 10.
Car Pool?

196 and 608 are slow and take about an hour to Shenton Way during peak times.  Less when Nicholl highway opens again.

Bus Plus - 541.  Faster but more expensive, and often full in the morning when it pases Mandarin Gardens.  Takes about 30+ mins.

644.  Faster and cheap. No Ezilink cards though.  Takes about 30+ mins.

Hey Gardener & Siglap

Sounds like a great place.

Thanks for the useful info! Much appreciated.

On your queries:

There's a turnstile entrance/exit in the condo which leads to underpass to East Coast Parkway.  Yes, it's safe and well-lit.  Besides this, there is also a Park Connector run/bike path nearby which runs for several km along canals, etc.

Normal bus services takes an hour to get to town.  Flag down taxi shouldn't be much of a problem.

As for laundry, there are many which do pick-up and drop-off without extra charge.

Generally good place for families.  Good luck.

Dry cleaners are quite new - they took over the old laundry about 3 months ago so hopefully they won't be closing down just yet.

Underpass is well used - I used it today!  It's very useful and there's a turnstile gate right next to it so you can just pop though that and be down at the park within minutes.

not sure about Shenton way - I think the 196 and 908 go down there, but would probably take a while.  you'd have to investigate.  There is some sort of exec bus which goes along in the mornings too - number 541.  I think it actually goes to Shenton way.  Not sure what the deal is with it but those who get on are always office types and they use ezlink cards to pay.  It's run by Bus Plus

Cabs go past all the time along Marine Parade.  Can be quite a few people flagging them down in the mornings, but I'm sure you'll work out the best times to get one.

If the furnishings are dreary - tell the agent you want new ones.  it's a renters market and they should be able to sort you out.

I forgot to add:

1. Are there direct bus services to Shenton Way? How long is the bus ride approximately?

2. Is it easy to flag a cab any time of the day by the main road just outside the estate?

Thanks again.

Sounds awesome guys!  Thanks for the heads up.

The grocery store looks good. Wonder if the dry cleaners might move out too cos they'd save my life.

Is the underpass linking to the East Coast Park nearby and well-used? I need my walks.

Have been looking at studio apartments there but the furnishings are very dreary.

Still looking.

Really appreciate all your advice. Cheers.
