Already I have 2 M'sians colleagues who rented rooms in HDBs while the owners (not so elderly couples) still staying there. My colleagues are paying about $600 - $800 pm.

And thinking back, when I was an undergraduate at NUS, a couple of my classmates and I (Singaporeans all) rented rooms in flats near NUS - Dover, Ghim Moh and Clementine areas. I am very sure students are still doing this, ie renting rooms in flats around the areas.
read before replying. your colleagues obviously are still working, that person was referring to retirees!
