Moving out of her parents’ home at 22, fitness trainer Tiong Jia En started living alone in a small studio apartment that she found on the internet.
“I was searching online for my first home for about three months, and while there are a variety of homes online, [there isn’t much of] a choice when you don’t have a lot of money. So you filter by cost and there’s only like five [options], so you just choose one of the five,” shares the bubbly trainer.
She then moved on to a co-living space, a loft, and now, a mid-sized condominium apartment in the central region.
“I like the idea of living in different places, experiencing different environments,” explains Jia En, better known as JE to her riders, pilates students and 116,000 Instagram followers.
