A normal road, in a normal housing estate. All the buildings that you see here are HDB public housing. There's a lot of variation in design, but the old ones all have the same dreary look that is easy to spot.
Private condominiums look a lot better from the outside, but they can be much smaller indoors. A lot of the condos that I've visited have been like that, so don't be fooled by appearances.
Road looks impressive from this high up, from a HDB flat. But down there the tree-lined boulevard looks pretty normal, at least to me. I once asked a visiting Japanese lady, about her impression of Singapore. She said that she was surprised to see so much greenery, trees everywhere. And she wasn't standing at the top of a HDB flat.
