Sketch on Tiong bahru

Big image
  1. The building found there are only two to 5 stories high unlike now which has many floors. The old building have very unique stairs like the spiral staircase which is different from the one we have in typical housing ( hdb )..Furthermore , the houses back then were very spacious unlike now as Singapore , now has to make space for the huge rising population. Moreover, nowadays we even have bomb shelter room in each and every household unlike the older times where for example they only had air raid shelter. Now even have amenities such as lifts and facilities such as stairs in HBD houses. This shows that Singapore, our little red dot, has really developed in a third world country.
