Ryan is an old school print journalist gone digital. He's lived in almost every type of housing in Singapore, from flats to landed homes. Over the past 18 years, he's been a content developer for companies large and small, a co-founder in an education business, and sometimes a voice on the radio. He also spends too much time and money on painting little plastic soldiers.

I was thinking why not X family move in to the landed and rent out their flat. This way they get to take care of the ah Kong. On top of that get the rental, since now rental is pretty good.

Ya lor. So simple. But to be fair, the house could be quite rundown la.

Ah kong is always right. The landed freehold 6m home is, in a way, priceless and not everyone in Singapore has that luxury to the family’s name. Lucky ahkong never sell.
