A book on Singapore Houses



This book was my Christmas present and it is AWESOME. The book talks about Singapore history, the history of the bungalow house and has some awesome pictures of the black and white houses here in Sinagpore.

Oh to be able to live in one of these gems.... but, alas, most of them are either privately owned or rented out at SUPER high prices to wealthy ex-pats. In fact, in one way, I found it sad that many of the private homes owned by Singaporeans have been destroyed in order to sell the land to a developer at a higher cost. Pity that.

Highly recomend this book to anyone who wants a great coffee table book, but one with enough substance that keeps you reading!

I heard somewhere that you can take a tour where they actually take you through some of these houses - I love them from the outside and would really enjoy seeing the insides!
