Tips about living inside Diplomatic Enclave (Islamabad)


I am moving to Islamabad on, probably starting with 1st September.
I decided to rent a flat in Diplomatic Enclave.
This is about 8.5 Km from the place where I will work.
I would like to know about some experiences about living into that enclave.
Can those water companies deliver bottled water at my apartment inside the enclave?
If I decided to hire a driver at the beginning is allow for the driver to go inside the enclave?
How safe is driving in Islamabad? I mean there are traffic lights, sign, people respect them and so on.
There are some shops inside of the enclave or everything has to be bought from outside?
There are western type supermarket in Islamabad. I mean to put all the stuff I am buying in a wheel-cart and then bring everything to the car.

Thank you,
