First SOME background on the family. my husband and I come of the states,( MI ) We have a daughter who will be turning 2 in NOV. We DO NOT have a driver, I have never lived in a big city, am not afraid to be "local", hesitant, but not afraid. My husband went to University in London, the hustle & bustle no a problem with him. We do not speak Chin. but will be taking lessons. I have never had to speak another lang, my husband has, but thinks this will be difficult for him
My "needs" close to a bilingual kindergarden, easy for taxi/metro (i've never used a subway) Easy Carrfour shopping. Kid friendly. Traffic concerns for husband, he works at 950 Knag Qiao rd, Knag Qiao Industry zone, Pudong, 201315 Work from 7-5, will he be home in time for 6? Most days?? (our little one goes to bed early, and she would just hate it if she only saw him during the weekends)
So, here are my choices, due to certain specs & housing allowance. (pretty low when comparing)
1) Yanlord gardens.
2) Shimao Lakeside garden (jinqiao)
3) Seasons Parkviw (centruy park)
Any and all experiences you have had good/bad, are wanted. If they are friendly, how easy to get things fixed, pool cleanlieness, cleaning theft, etc etc
