About the Homestay
We are a Singaporean Chinese family living in a comfortable and fully furnished 3-storey terrace house in Jalan Kelichap (Upper Paya Lebar area). I work full-time in a local university and I have 2 teenage children, aged 13 and 14 years' old.
We prefer to host international students who are in Singapore for short term studies or on an exchange program. We undertake to provide a warm, friendly and caring environment for them. Our students will have lots of fun and laughter staying with me and my 2 teenage children.
Our family speaks English predominantly, but we are proficient in Mandarin too.
All our guests will be provided with warm hospitality and respect. Guests may use our home facilities in the living room or in our mezzanine lounge. Facilities include smart TV (with netflix subscription), computer with wifi, Xbox games, and library of books.
We provide general housekeeping on a daily basis. Hot shower and air-conditioning is available. Guests may also use our kitchenette (for light cooking), and washing machine.
