Today, we will talk about SengkangBabies’ HDB (Housing Development Board) Story. It is quite obvious SengkangBabies call Sengkang home (家) right 🙂
If we have a timeline for Sengkang’s history, it would look something like this.
1999 – we got the key to our new house
2000/2001 – ROM and Wedding ceremony
2003/2005/2007/2009 – Every two year, one baby pop out 🙂
2009 – SengkangBabies blog was born together with Boon Xin, our princess.
A house is not a home.
We started with a dream.
We wanted to build our future together.
As we sketch out our masterplan, colours, material, designs symbolise our ideal home (家). As the months went by, we see our Hall, Kitchen and rooms taking shape.
As we renovate our house, Sengkang is also undergoing upgrading. Since we move in a decade ago, Compasspoint, MRT 2003, integrated interchange, and wet market slowly came on board.
Maybe the policy makers had intentionally left out the cinemas and shopping centers.
When couples are lonely, Sengkang experience a small baby boom :p
This is our HDB story.
We have build up our 5-room nest over the last decade.
Time flies !
Other than a slightly more messy nest, no thanks to the kids, you can expect to hear laughter (most likely from kids) and occasionally screams from yours truly and Mummy.
Either way, our home is always lively, never quiet.
No points for guessing who are the parent’s little nemesis haha 🙂
We love Sengkang so much, we named our blog “SengkangBabies 盛港宝宝” 🙂
Sengkang (and Punggol) neighbourhood is our playground, our home, our childhood.
What about the kids? Do they love their home, neighbours, school and friends? We have provided a warm loving home for our kids, and we are glad the siblings are bonding well.
Video : Boon Yee and Boon Xin sharing their umbrella, sweet 🙂
We ask our children to draw their home. Some draw HDB, while others prefer bungalows. We can see cartoons of our family and the “imaginary” pet 🙂
With our HDB flat, Mummy and Daddy’s Dream of a Happy Family has been realised.
Have you started building your nest yet?
