Ang Mo Kio, the once unassuming housing estate in the North is making headlines.
You may have heard by now that the town’s very first BTO sales launch saw overwhelming success, being 13 times oversubscribed, easily making it the most subscribed sales launch this year.
It’s not surprising when you take into account its attractive central location (Orchard is only 6 stops away by train) and mature town status, which are sure-fire attributes to draw buyers in droves.
BTO news aside, what excites us most about Ang Mo Kio is the rising number of value-for-money spas and hair and beauty salons that provide quality pampering and primping without charging unnecessarily high prices.
