Maggie Willis, 28 years old, USA
"I specialize in workplace design and strategy, and have been working for RTKL since 2011 in the US. I arrived in Singapore in Spring 2014 to work for one of our global clients, an international Oil & Gas company.
Initially I came for 6 months, but the project keeps extending!
When I arrived in Singapore I stayed in a hotel on Orchard (Grand Hyatt) for two weeks. For long term housing, my company rented a service apartment for me in The Foresta@Mount Faber in HarbourFront/Mount Faber area. It's a great location because it's very convenient to go to my office, which is located only a short walk away or 2 bus stops away from my apartment.
I have been living in my service apartment in The Foresta@Mount Faber for more than 1 year now and I plan to stay at least until October 2015, or maybe even longer.
It works out great for me because I really need flexibility for my apartment lease.
"When I first arrived in the apartment, I immediately thought it was really nice and cozy. Even though it wasn't necessarily my style, I liked that it was all set up and decorated (even pictures, frames, mirrors on the wall!) with nice furniture. The move was very easy and convenient: all I needed to do was unpack my suitcase and I was all moved in!
When I moved to Singapore, it was my first time in Asia! It was a very smooth transition though: I thought it was very easy to navigate around the city and people were friendly.
Singapore is a very clean, safe, green and welcoming city. I enjoy living here!
As for me, I am a pretty laid back and outgoing person! I like exploring the Singapore night life with friends, going to yoga and pilates classes, traveling, hiking, and being outdoors. One of the reasons I like the location of my apartment is how close I am to Mount Faber and the outdoor trails. On weekends, I like going for walks through Mount Faber Park, Henderson Waves, the Forest Walk, and Labrador Park.
RTKL organized my stay in Singapore: they chose LMB Housing Services. It is the first time they used LMB, but I am certain they will use your services again!
I would definitely recommend LMB: it is hassle-free, all set up, easy."
