Joshua Tan Spent $200K To Overhaul His “Too-Expensive” Telok Blangah Luxury Condo After A Termite Infestation
“It’s been my dream to get my own apartment since I was 19,” says Ah Boys To Men star Joshua Tan, 32. "I started saving when I was in the army and that habit has continued throughout my career. I would put away at least 60 per cent of [his earnings from acting and appearances] every month. I finally got it in 2020 when I was 30. It’s been quite a journey.”
Home for Joshua and his wife, houseman Zoen Tay, 25, is a 1,300 sq ft condo in Telok Blangah, which they moved into last December, just before their wedding. Tucked away from the main road and surrounded by greenery, the ground floor two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is bright, spacious and quiet.
“It feels like we are not in Singapore. It’s very peaceful and that is part of the charm. When we saw the place, we knew we wanted to get it. The only thing on our minds was can we afford it,” he tells 8days.sg.
While he declines to reveal how much they paid for the “too-expensive” condo, it was “a really good deal” for a unit at the waterfront development.
“I paid too much,” he laughs, “it’s really stretching it. I’m a struggling actor.”No part of this story or photos can be reproduced without permission from 8days.sg.
