For want of a better title

Tall and Tan and oh so Sexy, the boy *not* from Ipanema goes walking by...

You know you live in a good neighbourhood when...

1) The Malaysian Embassy is a block from your apartment and the Singaporean embassy is about 5 blocks down. Along with a ton of other embassies.

2) The liquor store in your neighbourhood doesn't have wrought iron grills to protect it's windows.

3) There are no crazy people, beggars or vagabonds in your neighbourhood.

4) Your security guard tells you it's perfectly safe to walk along the street at night.

5) There's a pier 1 import and office depot 2 blocks down, and a Besy Buy a street across.

6) There's a carwash, barber and 2 dry cleaners within a 5 minute walk.

7) On the next major street you have wonerful dining and shopping options.

8) One of the richest neighbourhoods in the city is a 5 minute drive North.

9) Very few police or ambulance sirens at night

10) All your neighbours are extremely polite and quiet (i.e. like HDB blocks, just a little friendlier)

    You're near the Singapore Embassy? That's a lovely neighbourhood. And Pier 1! I'm jealous...
