An inner city pad advertised for $350 p/w (down from $370):

Talk about compact living


As for the apartment, here's the listing

How did that pass health regulations with the loo so close to the cooking facilities?

You could go to the loo and wash up and the same time - multitasking at its best

I've seen some really cool designs for compact homes, like the one below..... doubt they'll ever bother with it here though.....

Crikey- if that is "city living at its best" I'd hate to think what less "luxurious" pads were like.

I'm shuddering at the thought of all those floating fecal matter particles all over the cooking area.

Imagine you have family or friends round 'just going to the bog darling' and the whole room can see you wiping your arse. Still if you can see the TV from the bog it not all bad Watch sport on TV whilst having a shit, whats not to like.

But hey, its Sydney, an Asian investor would probably buy for around $850,000.

Pardon my descent into Cockney rhyming slang, but if they honestly they want $350 pw for that, they must be trying to Adam & Eve me with a giraffe.

Not quite Vash.... must try harder with the cockney...

"Believe me with a Laugh" that translates to.

The original purpose of rhyming slang was to confuse outsiders as to what people were saying.... looks like it's still working

Looks like a Chinese investor already has. I mean, without the squat loo a Chinese student would find this luxury, and at $350 a week an absolute bargain for a Chinese student.
