Living in a HDB, regardless of size, is nothing to be proud of.

Not sure why some people must put others down. HDB nothing to be proud of? So what if you got many condos/private property to your name? You are just the type that I totally ignore when it comes to social functions....

We are all here to compare salaries.

So you are proud of mediocrity?

If your son gets a C, you're happy?

If the government can't perform and screws up policies, you're proud?

er... you are comparing apples/oranges?

Whoever said anything about being proud of mediocrity?

I am just saying why should a person staying in a HDB flat, with a respectable job (he and wife combine income $200K??) be put down?

So if you son get a C, you disown him ah? That's what you trying to tell me?

In Singapore, if you don't live in a private property, you are actually a nobody. That's a reality. Noone will tell you this in your face in the real world. We are now in an online forum so people will tell you the hard facts.

Those who live in hdb - nobody
Those who live in condo - almost there
Those who live in a landed property - you've arrived and indeed a somebody. Only 5% of Singaporeans live in a landed property

Work harder to be a somebody in your life

Keyboard warrior, what makes you think i'm not staying in a landed?

Just that I don't really put down other people who stay in a HDB but have an honest living.

That's the difference. I think enough has been said. Lead your life, and if life throws you a curve ball, be sure to come back and read this statement that you have written.
