In Singapore, most of the population stay in flats…
Instead of having fences in-front of the houses… each home has a door with grilles.
The corridor was a happy place.
When I was a kid, this was one of the places I played with my sisters and cousins…
Here, I learned how to ride a bike, grew my first morning-glory and played with fire..
(Playing with fire along the corridor was the best choice, cos my parents and Grandma were in the house and they were always watching.. Heehee.)
I loved playing with fire… and often wondered why Singaporeans don’t do bonfires….. so one day, I decided to create a bonfire for myself by setting an empty flowerpot on flames… Haa.
It was one of my best days as a kid. 🙂
If I stand along the corridor in the evening… I would be able to hear what TV programs other families are watching… It can’t be helped, because our homes are so close to one another.
And yes, you would be able to guess which program is the hot favorite in this community!!
Here’s an interesting fact on Singaporean who live in flats….
Most of us do not own a dryer!
How do we dry our clothes then?
After washing our clothes, we would hang them on bamboo sticks to dry.. if the weather permits, we would hang the bamboo (loaded with clothes) out to dry.
What a nice feeling to see your clothes drying in the sun. 🙂
