Wa, I finally sat down to read the news of the 12,411 HDB flats up for sale in this “bumper crop” launch! Impressive haul!

I see already, I feel damn sian. Why can’t singles buy a private property younger? 35, really? Pffft. Female readers who are looking for a suitable potential husband, please drop me a mail and we can discuss marriage, haha.

Who says HDBs aren’t affordable? A first-time young couple eligible for all the grants can EASILY get a 3-room flat without blowing a hole in their pocket. 10% downpayment in a non-mature estate is only $10,000. Making too much money, can’t get all the grants? $17k downpayment! With the average Singaporean couple blowing through tens of thousands for their extravagant wedding, this is nothing. As someone famous might say, this is peanuts. A 3 room flat can accommodate a kid, or even 2 if you stick them …
