  1. 3 kids all squeeze into 1 room https://qanvast.com/sg/articles/familys-executive-apartment-in-tampines-gets-a-staggering-sgd325k-reno-2944 Family’s Executive Apartment in Tampines Gets a Staggering $325K Reno No expense was spared in this lavish home, where even the tiniest detail was chosen with great care! Going into a renovation, most homeowners tend to have a fixed budget – for resale flats, that usually hovers around $40,000 to $80,000. But for the homeowners of this executive apartment in Tampines, their desire for a spacious, luxury-themed home culminated in a h
  2. Will my HDB flat be worth $0 when the lease expires? Probably one of the biggest questions most HDB buyers have is: What happens when the 99-year lease is up? Does it just go down to zero? Or will you have an option of extending the lease? A recent discussion on Reddit focused on this very question and on some possible alternatives. It's an especially pertinent question at this point in 2022, with resale flat prices at record highs, and no less than 259 flats selling for $1 million or more last year. Have Singaporeans truly processed the significance of the 99-year lease limit; and i

  4. TL;DR – A Volkswagen Golf R with expired road tax gets caught on camera speeding along the SLE and overtaking a vehicle by using the road shoulder of the expressway and evading parking fees by forcibly pushing the gantry arm up. What. The. Shit. That’s still my reaction after watching the video multiple times. Watch this 76-second shocker for yourself to see why. What happened There are two incidents captured on video of the same culprit. The first incident sees a Volkswagen Golf R speeding along an expressway (caption says it’s the SLE).
  5. From my high HDB I can look down on 12 storey HDB. There looks to be some work going on on a group of 12 storey HDB nearby where they appear to be installing solar panels on the roof. Is this correct and have they been installed elsewhere? I think it's a good idea.

SINGAPORE – Housing estates and community spaces throughout Singapore will see more work-study pods for residents to use, if ongoing pilots in several neighbourhoods show a strong uptake. These pods, which are portable enclosed cubicles that can seat one to two, can provide a conducive and more private environment for residents to work near their homes, said Minister for National Development Des
  10. Parking PSA: 1️⃣ From 1 Sep 2022, we will adjust the grace period for short-term parking in all car parks with the Electronic Parking System to 15 minutes, to give motorists time for pick-ups and drop-offs. 2️⃣ From 19 Sep 2022, we will discontinue the sale of parking coupons at all HDB branches, as 9 in 10 motorists now use the Parking.sg app at most coupon-based car parks to take advantage of per-minute charging. Motorists who prefer to use coupons can still purchase them at authorised agents, such as petrol stations and convenience stores.
  11. This blanket ban on cats should be repealed. 😀 If dogs are allowed to be kept in HDBs, then the same should be allowed for cats. Homeowners should be allowed to keep cats, provided they are microchipped, vaccinated and registered with AVA, the same standards held for dogs. Cats should be kept indoors and not allowed to free roam for their own safety. Cat owners who allow their cats to free-roam will face the possibility of getting their cats rehomed if found outdoors or causing disturbances to other HDB dwellers such as defecating and urinating in public areas. Punish the irresponsible cat own

  16. Hi, Planning to reno my home and change all the windows. Old HDB flat, no extend ledge on top, thus have to close window whenever rain. What is you take of the differences between sliding and casement windows? and also with or without top-hung section. To me, casement window will direct wind blow into the flat but sliding window will not. Sliding window easier to open close. casement window more sound proof? (my room facing E'way) Having top-hung window, they say at least got ventilation when heavy rain have to close all other windows but I don't feel the different. Worst, cleaning the
  17. The 'chope-ing' culture is prominent in Singapore and it is usually observed when dining out at coffee shops or hawker centres. And unfortunately, this toxic culture has been shaped to be part of the Singapore identity. Watch the product of our toxic culture unfold before your very eyes: What Happened? This incident occurred at an open-air carpark at Block 114 Geylang Lorong 3. Two 'ah-mas' stood in a vacant white parking lot to 'chope' in a supposedly crowded carpark. As a result, they prevented a mini-van from parking at the vacant lot, which in

In the distance, you hear a low, noisy exhaust burbling sound coming from downstairs your block. And this is what you see: What's the first thought that comes to your mind? Frustration? Anger? Disappointment? You tell me. What Happened? Apparently, this frustrated Bedok resident managed to take a video of this rowdy Audi driver that has constantly disturbed the estate's peace. From afar or a single glance, the ca
  20. SINGAPORE — Most people living in three-room flats, and all of those in larger flats, will pay higher property tax next year following a revision of annual values of Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats. The Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (Iras) said in a press release on Wednesday (Dec 1) that it will revise the annual values of HDB flats upwards by 4 per cent to 6 per cent on Jan 1 next year. The annual value is the estimated annual rent of the property if it were to be leased. It is determined based on the market rents of comparable properties. The revision will b

SINGAPORE: A one-year trial to collect food waste from residents will be launched in the Ang Mo Kio-Toa Payoh sector in November, with 10 “smart lockers” placed at selected Housing & Development Board (HDB) blocks in the area, the National Environment Agency (NEA) said on Wednesday (Sep 22). The trial will be conducted by 800 Super Waste Management, which was on Wednesday awarded a new public waste collection contract for the sector. The sector covers the planning areas of Ang Mo Kio, Bishan, Serangoon and Toa Payoh. “These smart lockers will be installed with an Internet of Thin

It resonates with the letter I wrote to the Forum in December suggesting that focus be placed on the resale market to address the lottery conundrum in public housing (Focus on resale market to address public housing issues, Dec 21, 2020), as well as the opinions of many o
