narrow spaces

a familiar term to singaporeans. we are just a red dot on the globe yet we have 5 million people on this tiny island. that’s ALOT.

after spending half a yr in tokyo – small hostel, i became slightly clastrophobic. i can’t imagine going home to mere 4 walls, 1 tiny window after a long day at work. it’s suffocating man.

the other day i was just asking my girls, would they want to stay IN the city (imagine NYC) and outside (imagine hmm brooklyn? perhaps not a good example) well suburbans, you get what i mean.

i definitely do not want to stay IN the city, unless i’m blardy rich. then i can get a BIG house, smack in the middle of downtown with a chaffeur, that i wouldn’t mind.. HAHA

(slightly out of point)

here are some pictures i’d like to share. absolutely beautiful. creative use of narrow spaces which makes me change my mind about staying in a small house.

shame on you (and me) if you haven’t realised about this gem in our very own country!
