YISHUN HDB FLAT USED AS BROTHEL, SEXY LADIES PLAY CAT & MOUSE GAME WITH POLICE

Yishun residents living in Block 725 Yishun Street 71 complained to the media of a nearby HDB unit always receiving random male strangers up till the wee hours of the morning. 2 to 3 sexy ladies wearing very little are often spotted "at home", wearing high heels, backless dresses and thick makeup. Residents shared that the HDB unit was previously rented to students and worker but since 3 months ago was rented to these sexy ladies who are suspected freelance prostitutes. A prostitution ring is suspected to be behind these HDB brothels and there are men placed near the HDB flat as look out for the authorities.

HDB BUILDINGS NO LONGER SAFE? CHEAP LABOUR & LOW COST MATERIALS TO BLAME?

HDB buildings appear to be no longer safe. According to Shin Min Daily News, “a slab of the roof-wall” fell from Block 51 in MacPherson Road 2 days ago. The size of the calcium silicate board which measured about “4 metres by 2 metres” – slightly larger than 2 king size mattresses – could have caused a number of fatalities. Again, lady luck was smiling at us. Just last month a concrete sun breaker weighing a few hundred kilos was dislodged from another HDB block in Tampines. And last year, a smaller slab of concrete fell from this block in Whampoa.

PART OF CIRCUIT RD HDB BLOCK FALLS OFF, GIANT BOARD SMASHES INTO THE GROUND

At about 6.00am Wednesday morning (19 October 2016), a slab of wall attached at the top of a Circuit Road HDB block 51 fell off and smashed into the ground floor. Fortunately, no residents were in the area when the incident happened but it has shocked residents who were surprised that such an accident could even occur. Local resident Gary shared that Circuit Road estate (Macpherson SMC under Tin Pei Ling) has many elderly residents and they may not be agile enough to avoid such falling objects. If an object from height falls on them, it could cause serious and even fatal injuries to them.

WHY SO EXPENSIVE: 66% OF HDB PRICE DUE TO LAND COSTS TO GOVT?

I refer to the article “HDB annual deficit declines to S$1.64b as fewer new flats built” (Channel NewsAsia, Oct 13). It states that “The Housing and Development Board (HDB) incurred a deficit of S$1.64 billion in the last financial year, down from S$2.02 billion the previous year, as it scaled back on the building of new flats. I understand that the primary reason why the HDB incurs a deficit every year, and higher deficits when more flats are built – may be that it is charging the land cost at market rates. So, does it mean that the component of HDB flat prices charged to land cost is about 66 per cent (5,633,018 divided by (16,157,082 + 5,633,018 – 5,255,197)?
