Here are the pics of our new Mosque in Woodlands - Masjid Yusuf Ishak.
Named after the late 1st president of Singapore, it is the 69th Mosque in Singapore. It is (being) built at a budget of $15 million, on a 2,500 sqm site, and accommodates up to 4,200 worshipers. It is considered among the bigger Mosques in Singapore. Construction is set to complete by Dec 2016 (in about a month).

Its been 8 beautiful years at LaCasa, our home in Singapore.
From the moment we first stepped at LaCasa, to carrying my first child in the warm sun by the pool in the early mornings, to see both my kids running around around the lobby - I hardly miss a beat without counting our blessings.
The truth is any property can be a house, but to make a house into a home - it takes a commitment. An unwavering and unflustered belief that I am here to plant the seeds of success for my family & kids. The shared memories we build during the process at our home, do they become a memory of the past, or the childhood my kids will recall when telling their stories, or my only source of (emotional) strength when I age, I often wonder. But that's the part of the journey, and we should not confuse it for a destination. This is for 8 beautiful years of the journey, our Home, LaCasa.
