Today we will be featuring the new property launching soon in Paya Lebar, that is the Park Place Residences by Lend Lease which is main brain behind JEM, shopping center at Jurong East. JEM is considered a well-done project by JEM as the tenant mix is very cohesive, with giant brand like Robinson that surely draws a good shopping crowd.

paya-lebar-park-place-residencesGoing back at Park Place Residences, it will be a 99 years leasehold mixed development that is located at the junction between Paya Lebar Road & Sims Avenue. Paya Lebar is an area where there are huge traffic for offices, industrial and residential purposes, and thus the tenant pool will be sufficient to meet supply for residential. On the side note, the commercial site of this plot will be called Paya Lebar Quarter while the residential will be called Park Place Residences, so don’t get yourself confused.

One thing to take note on this project is that, it will not be a cheap project since it is by prestigious developers by Lend Lease and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority. But it will be a “Blue Chip Stock” for sure.


  • 10 minutes to the Central Business District and 15 minutes to Changi Airport by car.
  • Direct access to the Paya Lebar MRT interchange which connects the Circle Line and the East West Line , providing direct access to over 60 MRT stations.
  • Immediate accessibility to 6 bus stops around the project with over 20 bus routes.
  • Linked to the Pan Island Expressway, the East Coast Parkway and the Nicoll Highway.
  • Walking distance to rich ethnic communities of Joo Chiat, and Katong.

On 2nd thought, if going for commercial purposes, there might be more choices around the area since Paya Lebar is the hub for commercial activities. Good projects like Oxley Bizhub 1 and 2 can be a good selection and price has softened relatively for the past years.

Several prestigious schools are also within reach from this property that is majestic. The list comprise

  • Kong Hwa School,
  • Macpherson Secondary School,
  • Tanjong Katong Secondary School,
  • Broadrick Secondary School,
  • Chuing Cheng High School (Chief),
  • Macpherson Primary School,
  • Eunos Primary School,
  • Canossa Convent Primary School,
  • Maha Bodhi School and Manjusri Secondary School.

Other comforts that are in close proximity to the property include Geylang East Swimming Complex, Geylang East Public Library, S.T. Medical Centre, NTUC Fairprice and Geylang East Sin Hin Fodd Centre.

We Hate Instant Glamour For Being So Professional = )

Instant glamour, a local photography studio @ Orchard Pomo, it was established since 1997. Our team decided to go for a photo shoot as we need our corporate image for our group, and thanks for the staff at Instant Glamour, they provide us with necessary or basic hairdo and they even can provide us with the professional outfit that will go well for our purpose here.

The boss was rather friendly as we are a group, he foresee that we will be in a mess since this is our first time taking the professional photos at his photography studio. So he told us that to touch up our “face” before reaching the studio so that time can be shorten. Anyway we did what he said.

Upon reaching the studio, the boss by the name of Trevor did a brief introduction of their packages and we went ahead with the shoot. The whole process was guided and easily done up within 30mins.

After the photo shoot, we went to the nearby coffee shop before collecting the photos. The whole photography process was easy and thumbs up to Instant Glamour. By the way, they not provide professional studio photography services but an array of services from passport photo, family photo to wedding photography!

For those keen, you can visit them or give them a ring 6339 3998 for your photography needs.
