To add another anecdote, when I was in primary 5, I visited a classmate's home, which was a 3 room HDB flat. It was the first time I saw anything like it and shared it with my parents when I got home. Later on when he visited my place, they were filled with so much pity for him that they gave him $200 in ang pow to help out.

Today, I find myself living in a 2 bedroom apartment, similarly sized to a 3 room HDB flat. No one pities me and I pity no one living in a similar type of home. That's certainly proof of how the average standard and expectations of wealth and poverty have changed!
