I got this funny feeling Iskandar condos would have high rental take up rates soon.

Pregnant woman in S'pore tests positive for Zika

UPDATED: 10:43 PM, AUGUST 31, 2016

SINGAPORE — A pregnant woman living in the Aljunied Crescent/Sims Drive area has tested positive for Zika virus infection, the Ministry of Health (MOH) announced on Wednesday (Aug 31) night. This is the first such case in Singapore.

“Her doctor is following up close with her to monitor her health and the development of her baby,” said the MOH. The woman, who tested positive on Wednesday, will be referred to a maternal-foetal medicine specialist for counselling and advice, said the ministry.

The news comes a day after the MOH announced free testing at public healthcare institutions for pregnant women with Zika symptoms or who have partners with the virus, as well as those recommended by their doctors.

The MOH had also issued an advisory on pregnancy and Zika on Tuesday. Noting that Zika could have more serious consequences for pregnant women — their children could be born with microcephaly — the MOH said that pregnant women diagnosed with Zika would be referred to a maternal-foetal medicine specialist for counselling and advice.

I wonder if this bus stop outside of Afiniti condo in Medini will be part of the BTS (bus system) in future.

This glam stainless steel bus stop was build by the developer as part of the total development but whether any bus will stop by here is totally another story................but wait patiently, hopefully some buses might come by one fine day.
But the common theory in JB is , stay condo where got take bus one!

As someone mentioned, how come the seat seems to be placed behind? :smile:

Well... Maybe Malaysians wont' take the bus. But maybe also when more foreigners stay there, they will take bus?

Then again, cars are cheap in Johor. Not sure if it makes sense to take bus.

So I also dunno the bus stop is for what.... Just thinking maybe it could be part of the future BRT or is it BTS bus system?

Maybe it was intentional, maybe it was a stupid mistake.
But you the shadow under the bus stop?
So, the seat is now under the shadow so that the stainless steel seat will not be hot under the sun which may cause serious damage to some unsuspecting commuter's backside.


Well... Maybe Malaysians wont' take the bus. But maybe also when more foreigners stay there, they will take bus?

Foreigners who can afford condos don't take bus they figured and the transportation authorities has no responsibility towards the welfare of foreigners, public buses are meant for the general lower income public.

Then again, cars are cheap in Johor. Not sure if it makes sense to take bus.

As I've said it is just part of the development, so don't think to much into it and those BRT or BTS is just all hot air for the time being.
And look around the whole neighbourhood and nearby, can you see the next bus stop somewhere?

It is a bus stop, a taxi stand, a rain shelter or a resting place for tired legs. Definitely not a BRT on the road side. BRT do not use bus stops. It has its own stations with ticket counters and built to specs required of the system.

Anyone knows if iMedini Walk by Tang Group (Singapore company!) has started construction? It's supposed to be quite close to Legoland but I don't remember seeing its construction.

From the Medini plan that I see, there are also supposed to be IOI Medini, Prive Medini, Park Residences, Volt Corporation, Medini Square, Opus Medini, One World Medini. So many! Dizzy liao....

All of them are mainly mixed use with residential condos, offices and/or hotel. But seems like they are at a standstill and not built yet?

As a future resident in Medini, you can forward this question to IRDA or Iskandar Regional Development Authority.
They should be able to provide you with the right answers (hopefully).

Iskandar Residences on the left. Paradiso Nuova in front.

The developments all look closer together than I thought. Let's hope it doesn't feel too cramped when they are all completed.
