在这个组屋和公寓越来越小的时代,一间位于榜鹅的顶层公寓是相当罕见的。

9月28日,房地产公司PropertyLimBrothers分享了一段位于Punggol Walk宝家轩的复式顶层公寓参观视频,这间公寓距离榜鹅捷运站步行只需3分钟。

这间复式顶层公寓拥有7个卧室、6个浴室和一个宽敞的屋顶露台,面积为4811平方英尺,是新加坡最大的顶层公寓之一。

当前价格为380万新元,参观主持人Melvin Lim说,业主花费近50万新元来翻新这间顶层公寓。

一楼居住空间

其复式的设计容纳了顶层公寓一楼的所有起居空间,由七间改为五间的卧室和客厅厨房位于同一层。

以下是其平面图的简要概述:

其中一个房间也被改成了钢琴室,有点像客厅的延伸。

带有泰国度假别墅风的屋顶露台

虽然复式的一楼主要是功能型的居住空间,但这间顶层公寓的亮点是屋顶露台。

屋顶露台的面积有1900平方英尺,这可能比在那儿的大多数组屋公寓都要大。

露台分为五个区——娱乐区、用餐区、锻炼/瑜伽区、“阅读区”和户外用餐区。

屋顶露台的一部分被业主设计为私人娱乐区的“人洞”,可用作招待客人和朋友的公共区域。

用餐区和瑜伽区采用开放式的设计理念,使屋顶露台给人感觉很宽敞。

大量的精力被投入在屋顶露台的植物上。

根据Lim的说法,这些植物花费了4万多新元。

你如果肯花380万新元,那么这一切都可以归你所有了。

PSP's Tan Cheng Bock voted out as Sec-Gen after alleged party infighting

Apr 01, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership

Former Republic of Singapore Air Force colonel Francis Yuen has been appointed secretary-general of the Progress Singapore Party (PSP), taking over from party founder Tan Cheng Bock.

Dr Tan, 80, has become party chairman. This was announced by the PSP on Thursday (April 1), after its central executive committee (CEC) met on Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, PSP Non-Constituency MP Leong Mun Wai said Mr Yuen was the committee's unanimous choice to "lead PSP to the next level".

"Francis will lead and galvanise the party while (Dr Tan) concentrates on strengthening external support for PSP," he wrote.

Chairman role is basically a glorified flower pot

In many organisations around the world, the Secretary-General position has the authority to make all the decisions of running the organisation - or party. The Chairman generally does not have any more power pe se than any other voting member of the Executive Committee, except the power to run board meetings.

Comparatively, the Secretary-General is like the Chief Executive Officer of the company.

For example, the People's Action Party chairman is Gan Kim Yong while the Secretary-General is Lee Hsien Loong.

Party infighting?

The change comes amid reports of a rift in the party. An online news site, the RedWire Times, said in March that some party cadres have demanded for Dr Tan to step down as secretary-general, and allow for "more talented rising stars" to take over.

Commenting on the Redwire Times report, PSP member Kumaran Pillai said the new CEC line-up is in no way a reflection of any disagreement over the leadership of the party. Rather, Mr Yuen assuming the secretary-general role is part of a planned transition, he added.

“When Dr Tan started the party, he said he will mentor someone younger, and he hasn’t deviated from his original mission. People shouldn’t be reading too much into it.”

Mr Pillai added that he had a long dialogue with the party cadre who was quoted anonymously by Redwire Times as saying that some cadres are mustering support to demand for Dr Tan to step down from his post.

“His intention is not to stage a coup within the party. I think people have misinterpreted it and misunderstood what he said, sometimes it's like playing broken telephone, you say one thing and by the time you get to the last person, the whole story gets distorted along the way... there’s no infighting, there's no malice,” he said.

In other words, the flower pot needs watering.
