A sanctuary to call home
He said: “I don’t really like public transport, but the short distance between The Centrepoint and Somerset MRT station has made commutes very convenient.”
Steve also enjoys the wide variety of food options in the vicinity, such as dim sum at his favourite restaurant, Honolulu Cafe in The Centrepoint. The bars along Cuppage Road are also perfect for meeting up with friends.
When he comes home late to find the eateries closed, he enjoys cooking at home. This is a cinch as CP Residences provides a fully-equipped kitchen and housekeeping service.
These, he said, are “the best part” of staying with CP Residences.
No strings attached
“When I moved into my previous apartment, I realised the place was not what I had expected. But I was already locked into a two-year contract”, Steve recalled.
It was only after his fourth year here that he heard about CP Residences. Its short lease options are ideal for him as they provide unparalleled flexibility. More importantly, the terms are clearly in “black and white”, with no room for unexpected shocks from the fine print, Steve added.
Friends you can count on
“I used to go back [to Malaysia] every month, but it has been a year and three months since I last saw them.”
The co-living arrangement at CP Residences offers some reprieve though. Living with suite-mates provides much-needed community support.
Steve said he has built new connections and valuable relationships, which give him a deeper sense of belonging and security. He said: “Even though we don’t hang out all the time, the presence of someone else makes me feel a lot better.”
For many foreigners like Steve, having a community of friends and a safe haven to call home is key to helping them build a new life in their host country. In these regards, Steve has found CP Residences to be the perfect fit.
