Homeless man in S’pore discovers waterfront living by monsoon canal

Posted on 04 April 2017

Singapore can provide you a home as long as you live within your means.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, whose idea of being successful in this short life on Earth is to own a property, are feeling slightly envious.

This after a homeless man in Singapore discovered waterfront living by moving next to the monsoon canal.

One Singaporean, Kia Tua Chu, said: “I never thought the policy that anyone in Singapore can own a home was even possible, but seeing this, I believe it is so now.”

“As long as you live within your means and don’t be too ambitious, Singapore can provide a home for you that is to your liking as long as you accept some compromises.”

Other locals said waterfront living is the key to providing housing for everyone in Singapore and keeping it affordable.

Another local, Koon Tor Kah, said: “The government can open up the waterfront living spots to people in Singapore and rent them out Airbnb style so at least they make some revenue, as with everything else in Singapore.”

“This will ensure competitive pricing and a healthy demand-supply market mechanism to regulate vacancies, just like Singapore housing in general, which is a success in the world.”
