While we are very excited to build our second home, curious folks have been asking about our new home, and were giving all sorts of comments, mainly negative ones... Some of these common awful remarks and my common (and often sarcastic) replies to share:
Huh? Why you sell your house? Your house so convenient!
Huh? Why never buy condo? I can use the pool... the gym...
Huh? So old! The flat already 40 years, you still want?
What? You downgraded from a 5 room to a 3 room?!
As you can see, my patience is running thin.. from being questioned on our decision to sell the house, to buying our new 'old house'... Hubby and I are the ones living there anyway, so I wonder why almost everyone has something to chip in... if you have nice things to say or want to find out more about selling / buying a hdb in Singapore - Good! if you only have lots of negative energy that you need to pass on, please stay away from us. Andy and I do not need validation on our decision.
And for those supportive ones, Thank You, true friends :)
