But these flats are upgraded and maintained and looked so new. In Singapore, HDB flats need to be re-painted every five years.
Those staying on the ground floor has the advantage of sunning their mattress or laundries in the open area.
The above row of houses looked like private houses but they are actually HDB houses. They have a leasehold of 99 years but these houses are about my age (49 years) so they have about another 50 years life and they dont cheap anymore. They used to be rented houses but HDB has already sold them to the tenants long ago.
They are so beautifully decorated just like those private houses.
