Kitchen sharing

Postby harisadu » Tue, 29 Mar 2011 6:47 pm

Hey Guys,

Two queries
• In an HDB apartment, when an Ad says that light cooking is allowed, it means cooking in the room or in kitchen? And how, is it allowed by owners to keep a gas / stove in the room for cooking ?
• When staying in a 4 room HDB room, won’t all people staying there share the kitchen?

Just confused

I wouldn't imagine there is a one size fits all approach to every room for rent in an HDB in the whole of Singapore! Once you see an ad you like, call them up and ask

Light "cooking" means boiling water and adding that to dehydrated food stuffs. That's it. No hotpots, no stoves in your room.

Yes, all occupants will share the "kitchen." Might as well just call it pantry.

Moreover, when an ad says four rooms, that doesn't mean four bedrooms. The kitchen (if it exists), the common area (dining/living room) are counted as well. Four rooms may mean two bedrooms, a living room and a kitchen which may or may not be used for cooking.

One tip for you. When you see the term light cooking allowed, its definitely not for Indians. Our cooking is anything but light. :D
