    but some areas not so ulu.. prices are reasonable compared to the crazy areas.

    the crazy areas scare me. not that i would want to live in toa payoh or bishan anyways.. just not used to the central/north area. east for life!

    We can afford to buy but we cannot retire at the age of 85.

    not really working. lots of ppl getting married just because they are at the age to get a house and get married. and the first purpose is bigger than the 2nd one

    It depends, if she was expecting a condo be prepared to get a break up after a quick slap in the face or a kick in the groin.

    It's all in your brain whether you can afford
    anything from a roof over your head or a
    diamond ring.

    Worldly wisdom and property won't last.
    Live by the day and live in a simple way.

    Peer pressure can kill, just go and get
    a backup plan and when your future spouse
    don't see your way, you have to make
    the right decision or go with the wrong choice.

    Consider all options and not fall for
    temporary luxury because your resources
    can run out. Beware!

    when i was younger and single, open market price was much affordable.
    when i am eligible and still single, price was insanely high

    bear in mind that as a singaporean's single, you don't get much benefit / incentive when comes to having a roof over our head..

    later, there will be posting of "u think here is $$$, wait till u go HK, shang hai etc".

    like one of my friend told me, nobody is stopping u from leaving the country if u think it is too costly for u to live here.

    quickly go and find a bride

    like one of the stories my friend gossiped to me, his colleague proposed to the girl just because their flat is approved
