Almost a year ago, I made a post on why we can't move in yet much less buy furniture (which you can read here). Now, we definitely have an answer as to where we are going:
We were there last week for the "look and see" trip and accomplished quite a few things during our five day stay:

2.) Opened a bank account with DBS.
3.) Found an apartment to rent.

The plan was to seriously start searching for a place next month, so we didn't expect to find one so soon.
Since we are still at the start of the rental process, details of the apartment hunt will be in another post, but here's a picture of the building which I got off the Internet:
