iProperty: Why did you choose to live in this area? What are the pros and cons of living in this area?
Sandra Goh: The area has great transport links that are very accessible. There are plenty of places to eat, even late into the night. The only downside is that the buildings are a little older than others.

iP: Can you tell us a little about the property you live in?
SG: I live in a three bedroom flat right next to the community centre. It’s great as Holy Innocents Primary School is just a short walk away.

iP: What would your advice by for people looking to relocate to this area?
SG: I have lived in Hougang for the largest portion of my life and it has always been a pleasure. The area is family-friendly, has nearby shopping centres and schools. The amenities are excellent, there is always something to do for the whole family.

iP: What is your favourite place for dinner in the area and why?
SG: I always head down to Punggol for their nasi lemak. The food is excellent, but unfortunately due to this there is always a long queue.

iP: Do you have a local bar or pub and what’s good about it?
SG: Yes, there is one on Yio Chu Kang Road that I like to go to. It’s nearby and always a good place to have a quick drink without having to go into the city centre.

iP: Where do you do your shopping and why?
SG: I normally go into the city centre to do my shopping as the transport links are so good it doesn’t take very long to get there.
