Painting and Redecoration Works at HDB Apartment


From the view of my brother's flat I could these workers doing the painting work on the opposite block of flats. It is a very dangerous job for the painters even though they have safety belts, etc.

These are HDB flats which majority of Singaporean lived in. Every 5 years the town council would repaint and redecorate the estates.

For more information on the public housing in Singapore, you could see from here.

Painting every 5 years?
That's good policy.

That scaffold looks a little crooked to me! I don't think you would get me out there, even with a harness!
