House hunting in Singapore can be incredibly difficult, particularly if you’re looking for a “landed house,” rather than a condo. Often the “land” is actually just a strip of gravel, or a steep wooded ravine leading to God-knows-what-but-probably-a-snake-pit. And the sticker shock is so great, we wonder if carrying a portable defibrillator might be wise. There are, of course, fabulous houses in Singapore; there are lovingly restored Black & Whites, and stunning modern architecture, and humongous “bungalows,” where we imagine the beautiful people who live there spend their days reclining about on the verandah, gazing out at the sea in their backyard. However. Those houses are not for us. For us, it’s an endless parade of WTFery.
