Next, plan your Travelling:
It is always cheaper to book your return ticket from Singapore to Malaysia in Ringgit Malaysia. If possible, plan and book it together with your Malaysia to Singapore ticket. We should try to travel a few day earlier to Singapore and if possible even travel one months earlier to have a look around and make sure the accommodation that we found is suitable as described in the web site or photos.
Lastly, plan your Local Transport Route:
The rented place should not be too far from our working place. Without our own car, travelling early morning to work via public transport might be a nightmare. We need to wake up early and rush with the huge number of people (You shall know what I meant, ). We can buy a Street Directory and Bus Travelling Guide (only SGD2.50) as I did or just login to their web site for direction. Prepare few alternative route, especially for bus because it may be too full to get in. It is best to stay near by a SMRT station (expensive rental) or within walking distance (I am talking about walking distance of 15 to 20 minutes).
Hope these help!
