Singapore, 4.8 million inhabitants

Dominique: Hi welcome to Singapore. I’m Dominique and I live here with my husband Mark and our three children. And this is our little flat.

This year is Michael and he’s nine months old. And here are twin brothers: this is Christian and that’s Daniel. They are just about three-and-a-half years old.

And they love to play with Michael’s toys.

Mark: Something very unique to flats in Singapore is each unit comes with a bomb shelter. It comes with reinforced concrete. And we use it to store our alcohol, where we want to keep that safe and other things.

Dominique: This mirror doubles up as our art board, where we we’ve given them these markers so that they can draw on the mirror as well. And then it can be wiped off.

And sometimes if we celebrate a birthday, we might draw a decoration on the mirror too. As well as it makes the flat look a bit bigger.

Cleaned Every Day

Mark: Well these are just some pictures of Singapore 20 years ago; Singapore’s progress quite fast and in the last 20 years. And as you can see, it was more rural: a lot of trees not so many buildings around.

This is the old picture of Chinatown in Singapore. And you can see the infrastructure wasn’t so good.

So we like to keep pictures of history and Singapore and reminder kids how it was before.

Dominique: This is my dream living for now. It’s a living room that’s filled with a lot of very good memories because of the children, and this is where they play. I’m not sure whether it’s my dream, but at the moment it is and it’s home.

Mark: Bye guys from Singapore.
