Not sure about the truth of this report but it certainly tarnishes the image of the Lion City, if true...

Absolutely true! Piss and Shit everywhere, and nowhere to have a fag!

Not really, given that the numbers of times you'd go to near an HDB lift as an expat or visitor in Singapore <ZERO

Dirty habits in public-housing block lifts?

No different to public-housing in the UK or many other places then. And something most visitors or expat residents will ever see since they live in private housing or hotels.

But there is masses and masses of public housing in Singapore, and an increasing number of Western expats living in them.

That said, I've never found Singapore a particularly clean place anyway - despite the reputation and the shopping malls (which aren't cleaner than Dubai's anyway).

Still a great place though. Got back from there this morning

It's 12 months since I moved out, but I never once met an expat who lived in an HDB when I lived there.


There's not a lot of litter, but that's mainly because of the old boys collecting it up to pay for their grub and a big bottle of lager to pass out in the hawker with.

yep , used to live on the 17th floor of a block in the UK and the lift was always used as a toilet . Don't see why it would be any different in Singapore .

You can get the lash in Singapore, not sure if for having your bits out though.

I can think of four different expat friends living in HDBs. It was rarer when I lived there in 2006 though I did know one couple in one (and without a/c!) - but the prices have got ridiculous there.

just moved after 4.5 years there and I knew a few expats who lived in HDB apartments. some now choose that option due to the ridiculous rents in Singapore.
