As part of Singapore’s nation-building efforts, new flats developed under the Design, Build and Sell Scheme (DBSS) will be specially designed to improve social cohesiveness.

This after it was discovered that common corridors outside the relatively new Pasir Ris ONE DBSS flats were barely 1.2 metres wide and units were situated close to each other.

One Singaporean home owner, See Baey Zai, said this has helped him a lot in getting to know his neighbours better: “When I meet my neighbours and we walk past each other in the corridor, we will dry hump each other and our crotch will meet.”

“It is a great way to go back to the days of kampong living, where everyone would have interacted with everyone else on an intimate level.”

Other home owners said their experience at the Pasir Ris ONE flats are no different from those at another DBSS development in Toa Payoh.

Mei You Wei, another home owner, said: “Now I can hear my neighbours make love at night. It puts my wife and I in the mood as well.”

“I can tell when my neighbour is showering as I can hear the sound of water splattering.”

“And when my neighbour cook Nissin cup noodle I can smell also.”

“But having our doors close together like this means we have to learn what it means to give and take: We must open the door one at a time. If we both open together, both sides also cannot come out.”

“That means in times of fire, we will both die together when we try to come out at the same time. But at least, we will die with the knowledge we are good neighbours who perish together.”

This will help him mingle with lower-income heartland Singaporeans.

National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan has received his National Service call-up notification.

This after he said on MediaCorp’s Chinese-language station Capital 95.8FM for a live radio talk show on June 23, 2015, that staying in a HDB flat for five years is like males serving NS for two years, which will help nation-building and interaction with the community.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, particularly those who have served NS for two years and who are staying in HDB flats all their lives, said they are excited to hear this news.

One Singaporean, Cheng Hu Chu, said: “I have been serving NS my whole life. In fact, I have served NS twice: Once when I enlisted when I was 18 years old and since young I have been staying in a HDB flat ever since.”

“So that means I’ve done my reservist training twice also, in this case.”

“It is great to see ministers move into HDB flats and serve NS with regular Singaporeans side-by-side and interact with the community.”

“Or else, ministers will not understand what commoners go through in their daily lives because Bukit Timah bungalows don’t offer this kind of perspectives.”

“I hope to see more PAP ministers go for NS soon, in particular, Lee Hsien Loong.”

 

Khaw Boon Wan is an excellent speaker:

S’poreans agree with Khaw Boon Wan: ‘We can’t remember the last time anyone used religion to make money’

Numerous PAP MPs put on 24-hour suicide watch after Khaw Boon Wan said commit suicide because of lapses
