Dear A.S.S. Editor
We Singaporeans are so used to having people living above and below us in our HDB estates. Most of us have stayed in HDB flats our entire lives.
Am sure that once a while, we will hear our neighbours knocking walls, moving stuff or doing some drilling works at one time or another. And we all learn to live with it, as the inconvenience will only last for a day or two. But what if you have an upstairs neighbour who treats his house like a gym? Every night, you can hear the bugger skipping, and then after that, you can hear the neighbour dragging his exercise equipment before he starts exercising. A little later, u can hear the bugger putting down his weights heavily on the floor after doing some dumbbell lifting.
This happens every night! And the noise is just irritating, especially as it happens at night, when you are trying to sleep. What should I do? I want to be a good neighbour and not make any complaints, but how to be good neighbour if your upstairs neighbour does not care about the noise he makes in the middle of the night!
