Apartment hunting

I got an agent to help. Fortunately, a friend of a friend recommended an agent in Singapore. We spent nearly a week, but finally saw something that worked for me on Sunday. The place is within walking distance of a MRT (Singapore's subway system) station, so it will be convenient to get around Singapore. It was hard to find anything that didn't have two bedrooms, and this one will also have two bedrooms. It's wasted space to me, but hopefully I can find a use for it. Its quiet, that was important to me. Its modern and will have new furniture, I like that. It's got a kitchen, the first time I've had a real kitchen in years. It was more expensive than I wanted, but prices for apartments in Singapore are all outrageous. Basically, despite a slowdown in the world economy, the competition is fierce for places in Singapore. As soon as the one I saw was available, I took it. I felt I had to move.
