Not from Malaysia but spent a two-three months in Singapore and hit port there regular from 84-87, sure miss that spot, Newtons Circus the food was the best I have ever eaten. Shopping was awesome too! I was there when "Boogie street" was still around... was the first or last stop of the night.

The girls spoke English and most had jobs.

Haven't been there since 1987, miss the gatu gatu salad and the spicy peanut dips for bbq and rice cakes. Bali and Indonesia was very similar the language sounded the same.

Hi mate, I'm currently residing in Makati so I can only talk more about Makati and nowhere else as I haven't got the opportunity exploring around cities.

Makati was fine, easy to get around, many restaurant are easy to reach, but what sort of dine in do u love?? taxi are easy to get too!!

foods around here are more expensive if to compare back to m'sia~ but starbucks and those fast foods (mcd, kfc etc) are cheaper by rm1-3??

But life here compare to where im from are more to boring, maybe not much frens around... >.<

where you from originaly? ur offer will be based in which city??

I will be based in Makati if I accept the offer. Have not looked into any housing as yet, too early but could stay at Legaspi Village or somewhere in Fort. Any specific taxis to avoid there?

i could say if u stay at fort, a beautiful place, u could be stranded in jam during office hours unless u work beyond office hour.

Legaspi would b better since it is in the centre of Makati. i stayed at Salcedo village which is next to Legazpi.

from my experience i tend to avoid yellow taxi and only board white...i dunno whats the reason ; )
when u get inside the taxi, make sure the meter is on, if not, ask for the price, if u r happy then go ahead, if not, ask them to drop u off right away.
becareful of ur belonging although u r inside the taxi, one of my fren got robbed in the taxi.
always rmb to locked the taxi door as you wont know who gonna open the car door n snatch ur bags~~
