Bungalows, Condos and HDBs

When does a bungalow have more than one floor?  When it’s in Singapore of course!  Every home that isn’t a high-rise here is called a “bungalow”.

The vast majority of people live in HDBs – which are apartment blocks built by the Housing Development Board.  The better off, not all of whom are expats, tend to live in Condos, that is smaller plusher blocks with a lot of their own private facilities such as a swimming pool, tennis courts … and in our case something laughably known as a “putting green”.

Speaking of our case – we’ve put up some pictures of our flat on flickr .
