To be fair to her, she didn't leave public housing when she rose up the ranks of NTUC. Neither did she leave when she was a backbencher. Not even when she became the Speaker of Parliament. I would have been shocked if she left her 'Yishtana' for the Istana. That's just not her. (It's an ironic tragedy that such a personality is at the epicentre of the most divisive presidential elections in its short history - I blame the procedure not the person). She'll probably use the latter as her work office. I salute her ideals but she's got to reside at the Istana for security and pragmatic reasons. Of course, if her neighbours are okay with it, then why not?
When PAP candidate stay at landed property,some ppl nt happy.But when PAP candidate stay at HDB block,some ppl also not happy.
I also think it will be uncomfortable for a hijab wearing lady to live in a place where she has to put on her hijab most of the time... in Yistana, she can finally take off her tudung when she reaches home :)
imagine all the ah gongs ah mas going thru metal detectors have their belongings check thoroughly everytime juz to take lift to go back to their homes
A President that live among the people. What else can you ask for? See if there are other President in the world would do that. Let the haters continue to hate as that is what keep them alive else their life will be meaningless.
I think gahment may rent neighbouring flat units from owners for 6 years at above market rates to house aide camps,security officers,cooks,gurkhas,and lift attendants for president's flats,a security post at lift lobby and outside lift landing on level 6?
The APPOINTED president for everyone, not the president ELECTED by everyone. Stop making it sound like Singaporeans had the chance to even cast their vote. Most ridiculous #PE2017 in history.
Points to note:1. You are not the president for all but the whites, and intend to only serve them without any hesitation or doubts.
2. You are not the reserved president because the seat was already reserved with your name.
3. You promised to work with the whites as their president elect.
4. You only represent the whites and your duty remains only for the whites, only to them.
4. Multiracialism is not practiced like that. This PE has exactly demonstrated how multiracialism is just a slogan, there's nothing to be proud of a non-elected president, rather an appointed one by the law-makers.

Mdm Halimah, it's great to know that you would like to stay at your current place in Yishun just like 80% of Singaporean do.Would you consider to take the train to work just for a week from Yishun to wherever the workplace just like most Singaporean too? You should know how we feel about the train system lately especially the faults at peak hours :(
This HDB block is so unique. Comes with homogenous tiles on its corridor. The only unsightly items are the clothes hanging on the front door. Very classy for a Singapore president.
This is the kind of president that is really down to earth, on the ground and real. I am not sure is there any president lived so close to the citizen.
It just prove two things, our security is 👍 and the president sincerely wants to be peoples' leader.
