Property in singapore

during my last trip back to singapore, had some time over the weekend to check out some new developments back home.

wellz, not that we were looking to buy a property immediately, juz that so much talk about rising property prices and so forth, decided to "look see look see" as to what's available on the market.

of course those located in the prime districts, prices have already climbed by a fair bit .... and don't think we can afford it lah. and so we looked @ the east and upcoming west. the new devts are indeed pricey ;( and so it lead me to think about why am i looking at properties now? when prices are climbing.

maybe we are afraid we will miss the "boat" so to speak; maybe it's that herd mentality, "everyone's" buying??? maybe it's juz a "desire" .... hahahah

but after giving much thought, i think it's not time for us to buy now lah. i think if i really want to, i should look at property stocks to hedge the rising property prices ...... hahahaha ....easier said than done. due to my "indecision" and a wrong call made, i've already missed 2 stocks that made the "run" this month. now back to waiting. one thing i've to develop, patience. ;)

Japan Travel - Jogosaki Coast (near Ito)

From Inaba Ryokan in Ito, we travelled to Jogosaki Coast to view the suspension bridge (which is nothing lah!), but the coastline view is very nice and the waters, crystal clear :)

The train ride to Jogosaki was abt 25mins, but we had to walk 30 mins to reach the coast line. Walking there was fine. We thought we can find a buz or something to take us to the train station, but alas..... this place is so secluded, we cudn't find the bus stop ..... we had to walk back to the station, which is another 30 mins and was really very very tired!!

Good thing we found a lil' coffee place -- to rest and enjoy the peaceful surroundings of this town. nobody walks on the streets, there's hardly any cars and we suspect it's a "retirement" village of sorts ..... cos it's so far from civilisation, it's hard to imagine young, lively folks living here..... ;)

And then we head off to Kawazu to view the waterfalls ..... pictures as below!
